Very pricy for below average buffet. Salads were poorly seasoned. Eggs Benedict over cooked. Service was good. Dining room is dated.

Comfortable restaurant with great service and lovely views. The menu is limited but well done. Dining here really adds to a great evening.

We have been members at the Kennedy Center for years but tonight was the first time we ate at the Rooftop Terrace Restaurant. The food was mediocre at best, the prices way too high for what we had. I knew we were in trouble when our $40 bottle of wine came to the table & it had a twist off top!!! I understand that is not a tremendous amount to spend on a bottle of wine but I still expected something better. When we checked the prices for the wine on-line - it was a bottle that normally sells for much less than $20.

Enjoy the shows at the Kennedy Center - they are fantastic - can not think of any in the past few years that we did not enjoy - but eat somewhere else.

The cafeteria style works because it is quick serve and reasonably good
food for the price. There is something for everyone as well as a beautiful
salad bar that you pay for by the pound.

Traveling to Kennedy Center for performances via the Metro is so easy now with their complimentary shuttle from Foggy Bottom to Kennedy Center. Due to bar weather we made a reservation for the Terrace Restaurant before our show. Service was excellent. My baby lettuce salad was crisp with a tasty dressing. My husband had fresh seafood chowder and said it was best he ever had. My scallops were so great I would go back tonite. My husband had sole which was also very good. The dessert and coffee were Ok but not outstanding. It was a bit pricy but considering it was a quality location in DC - not more than elsewhere.
