One of the best spots in DC! The food and cocktails are incredible and the vibe/decor is flawless to match. Highly recommend the beef tartare and hangar steak.

Convivial is amazing-consistently spectacular food and excellent cocktails. The chef is also personable and very focused on the kitchen’s output and waitstaff performance.
