3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The atmosphere was nice, but loud due to large parties nearby. They did have house wine for 5 dollars a glass the night of my visit. It was good for a cheap house wine. I had the Woodstone roasted half chicken, which the waiter recommended. The chicken was a little dry and the vegetables were under cooked. The dish had... More

Stopped here for an evening meal. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. The wine was just as described. The craft beer list was amazing and I had to ask for advice. Worth a return visit. The food was really tasty and filling We had salmon and it was moist and not dry Loved the mild curry dressing with it.

My husband and I were headed to another brewer, which turned out to be closed for reno's. Desperate for something similar we stumbled upon Rusticos and were fortunate to find a table. The service was great providing recommendations for beer and the food was delicious, particularly the grilled Caesar salad. Yum. The decor is inviting with the living wall and... More

Went with a group for Sunday Brunch. We were seated quickly in a quiet area, which I appreciated. I ordered the French Toast, which was quite surprising looking. Each piece (2) looked like a muffin. Very crispy outside. Good flavor. Everyone ate their food, but no one commented on how good it was. Rustico has many beers and seems best... More

If you are looking for good pizza and burgers and a excellent craft beer list then this is the place to go. Highly recommend the margarita pizza, the burger and the tater tots with homemade lemon aioli.

Happened upon this place while looking for a different place and so glad we did! Three of us shared the White Pizza and the Butcher Block Pizza with Ceasar salads. Wonderful! So much food and the favors were exceptional! The beer menu is extensive.

First night visiting DC area, and walked down to Rustico. You can eat inside or out. Had a nice dinner. Beet salad with salmon was very good.

We went here with 10 people for a graduation lunch. It has a large beer and cocktail offering. It has a number of small plates, pizzas, burger, egg offerings. Our group had everything from powdered donuts, to carrot hummus, to cheese buns, to poutine. I found the vegetable and salad offerings to be somewhat limited. The asparagus was very good,... More

We ate in the restaurant one night and had takeout the next night. Everything was good. The restaurant seemed to be a good meeting place so the noise level was a little high. But everyone there was having a good time. Takeout was very fast and everything was hot. Would definitely go back.

I met a former coworker for lunch while visiting the DC area. Rustico was his recommendation given the time, location, and scheduling constraints. My trip advisor phone ap incorrectly indicated that the restart aunt was closed, but I was assured that that was in error. The visit was more about conversation than food, but after walking by a table with... More
