We were visiting friends in Washington, DC. They had made reservations for a 2:30 lunch for us on a Tuesday afternoon. What a wonderful surprise when the person who had made the reservations for us received a phone call from the hotel that same morning......telling her that the restaurant would be only open for the "bar menu" at that time......and...

Arrived to the Hotel for a three night stay late in the evening. Decided not to try and wander around in the neighborhood looking for a restaurant we decided instead to try the Hotel bar and restaurant. What a wonderful surprise, a beautiful environment, quiet, very much upscale and comfortable. A romantic dinner with great wine and food.

It's great when you don't have to travel far to enjoy a pleasant meal, especially when it's right in the hotel. The service, cocktails and wine were excellent. My companion ordered the fish dinner - which she thought was excellent. I had the salmon - which was just okay. This particular entree was a little too rich with the heavy... More

Seldom do I rave about breakfast. The Tavern at Hendley Park rightly deserves the fabulous reviews given here. The atmosphere is a delightful. It is the simple things exceptionally done that sets apart excellence. I had the best scrambled eggs Ive ever had in my life. My wife was delighted with the quiche. My daughter enjoyed her usual Eggs Benedict.... More

Had dinner with a group here. Food was good, but not exceptional, and the atmosphere pleasant. Service was a bit slow and occasionally grumpy - but overall an enjoyable experience.

I only had breakfast here but the food was great. Wait staff pleasant and prompt. Dining area nestled in the lower level of the hotel. Dining Room decor was very nice. Very clean area.

Had a business dinner here during a recent convention at the nearby convention center. Charming old world atmosphere, especially the bar. Prices are reasonable and portions large. But the positive aspects stop there. The food (main course) was quite ordinary for all of us. The waiter was surly and not accommodating to our requests. Wine choices were sub-par, but that... More

Step into an earlier time and experience lovely food, delightful staff and a rich history. I haven't had an opportunity to experience a complete meal but the light lunch of tomato bisque, warm sourdough rolls and rich coffee is a pleasant beginning of my two day stay here. I plan to take advantage of the high tea, music in the... More
