“An Exceptional Dinning Experience.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Dinner at Corduroy is a dining experience. Although It can be tough to find and on street parking can be difficult, the dining experience makes it all worthwhile. We enjoyed a Chehalem, Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley before and during our meal. For dinner we ordered Seared Sea Scallops and the Crispy Striped Bass. Our meals were excellent - both in presentation and preparation. The service was professional, not hurried; the atmosphere refined. Overall, it is what you would expect from a fine dining establishment. Reservations a must! Enjoy!!

“Nice ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Odd location with great food and service. Don't mind the abandoned buildings nearby. This does not bother you once inside this restaurant. Business dinner that went smoothly with wonderful service. An extensive wine list with good representation of most regions. We would go back.

“One of DC's Finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Corduroy was a top rate experience from start to finish. The welcoming greeting, service, food quality, and attention to detail were all just fabulous. I will definitely be dining here again.

“Terrific meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This meal was just outstanding in every respect. Delicious food, right-size portions and attentive, well-informed service. We didn't take a deep dive on the wine list (had to wake up early the next morning) but it had mostly unfamiliar names, so a consultation with your waiter would be in order. We ordered two appetizers, two entrees and one dessert, and there was not a false note in any of them.

“Divine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Two words: tasting menu! Went for dinner with a group of ladies, celebrating a soon to be bride! Needed a reservation but we were able to get one. Deciding to try the six course tasting menu was genius! This is incredible five star dining off the beaten path in DC. We had stellar service and the staff was knowledgeable, attentive to food allergies, and friendly! If you are a foodie you have to try the tasting menu, there was nothing served that was less than amazing! It's a pricey place but worth every penny. True fine dining at it's best.
