We have a good selection of Italian, American and French wines and champagnes, available by the glass or bottle. Thus you are sure to find an appropriate spirit to enhance any of our entrees. Our colorful continental decor, along with the savory aromas of Italian cooking, help create the ambience that makes the Odeon Cafe a wonderful place to visit. Odeon Cafe will be serving a traditional 3-course Thanksgiving Day feast on 11/22/07 for $18.95, as well as its regular menu.

“We hosted 22 for dinner and it was wonderful”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

My son graduated from American University on Saturday May 12th. We chose to host a post-graduation dinner party at the Odeon Cafe based up recommendation from a friend and the location minutes from campus.

We had an amazing experience here hosting dinner for 22. It was exactly what we had hoped for and I'd go back anytime.

They gave us the entire back of the restaurant for our party. We worked with the manager via email (I was in town from Denver) and chose to pair down the menu to 5 items and allowed the management to choose appetizers. The entire experience was fantastic.

When we arrived appetizers were ready to go on a separate table, drinks were soon flowing, and the ambiance allowed for lively, mingling conversations among the guest prior to dinner.

The wait staff was very attentive swiftly removing empty appetizer plates from guests hands. We socialized for an hour or so and then told the manager we were ready to dine.

I heard rave reviews from everyone about each of the 5 possible entrees (lamb, pasta, beef fillet, chicken and fresh fish). The young kids were even given the option of creating their own pizza.

We chose bottles of white and red wines just prior to dinner and the wait staff made sure no one ever ran low on wine or anything else. When dinner was ready, they served each person at the table nearly simultaneously and then moved on to serving the remaining tables in similar fashion.

My thanks to owner/manager Kali K. and his wonderful staff for an exemplary evening.
