Decent, not great food. But very good and reasonably priced wine list. Nothing too inventive. Standard choices of fish and crab cakes, flat iron steak, lamb chops and pork chop. Salads are good—try the warm pear. Lots of atmosphere in this famous club.

This lovely facility exudes a charm and elegance that enhances any visit. Although it is a private club, is well worth trying to connect with the member in order to enjoy its beautiful classic furniture and amenities.

Enjoyed my brief visit to the Cosmos club, very distinguished club with a unique role in the history of the USA.

If you get the opportunity to visit, seize it.

I visited as a guest of some friends and this was the highlight of my trip to Washington. We enjoyed drinks at the bar before a wonderful dinner. Everything was perfectly prepared and everyone in our party enjoyed the evening. After dinner we took a tour of the building, which just added to the ambiance of the whole evening. I’m so glad I was able to experience the Cosmos Club!

In town for a conference, we utilized our reciprocal club arrangement with one of our home clubs. Very conveniently located near Dupont Circle and Embassy row, this club was a wonderful representation of re-purposing a mansion into a social club keeping the historical architectural elements while providing modern amenities. The flow of the rooms are not all that obvious but, the staff was very attentive and helpful to navigate the location of bars and restaurants.

The dinner menu was not as expansive as it could have been but, my party was able to easily select dining options to meet all dietary and palate preferences. Our server was young but, polished and charming. For a Thursday night, the dining rooms were mostly full and the service took maybe a little longer than hoped but, not a big issue for us.

We enjoyed a 'self-guided' tour of the 2nd-floor rooms and really enjoyed the beauty of the ballroom - with its French palace details. A stop not to be missed!
