The food and service here are consistently good. The dining rooms are small but comfortable and tables are not crowded close together.

We stopped by and had the lamb Loin and bread pudding. Both were delicious. Highly recommend the bread pudding.

Corduroy is competing above its weight class and it shows. Two criteria high on my list are a warm greeting and a smooth finish. My greeting was five stars; my departure might as well have been out the back door. Basically a great meal but disappointing experience. This is a really pleasant townhouse setting with crisp white linen, pale cream... More

I was here for a group banquet, so don't know how the price came out. What I can say is it was really top quality meal with great service. I had a corn soup, beef tenderloin, and cheesecake. It was all fantastic! I can unequivocally recommend it. It was a little hard to see on the street, as it has... More

Very nice dinner while we were visiting in DC. Outstanding service. I had the Big Eye Tuna - great flavor! My wife had the Grouper special - was supposed to be a variant on Spanish Paella, good but not quite expectations. Overall, great experience.

an understated atmosphere with worthy looking, although somewhat hit and miss service - fish is particularly well prepared - bountiful flavors, cooked at just the right amount gof under-doneness.

We were at a conference and this restaurant was very close by and fitted us in for an early dinner. Afterwards I realized that we were very lucky to get a seat. This part of the street is undergoing a pretty serious renovation and it is easy to miss the restaurant. Once inside the rather old (historic) facade the restaurant... More

We actually went here for a business meeting dinner. We did have a limited menu, but the food actually wasn't that great for what we had to pay for it. The service was great but the food didn't hold up to the service. It was hard to find, in fact if you didn't know where to go you would miss... More

The restaurant is in a townhouse. Very hard to find since the sign is quite small, very dark street. It is two floors. We sat upstairs. It was a bit darker than we would have liked. The menu is quite simple. I had the corn soup which was delicious and well season. My husband had the Salmon terrine. The bread... More
