“It is still getting some construction done but it is nice”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Lenfant Plaza is really nice, they have opened up a lot of new restaurants and the construction is continuing. I gave a lower score due to the current construction going on but, when it is finsihed I will need to raise this score. The new owner is spending a fortune to upgrade it and it is a great job. Again once the construction is completed I will need to change this score but it is getting better each day with a lot of choices .

“Be Careful, Be Safe”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

L'Enfant Plaza is conveniently located near the Mall and the Smithsonian, but it is a rather sterile concrete jungle. It is a bit "dead" outside of business hours, and if you walk the wrong direction, you can walk right onto the expressway. Traffic patterns can be tricky and dangerous. and there have been a few violent crimes in the metro there.

“Pyramid”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

it's in the center of everything including government buildings, hotels, shops and restaurants galore. It even has a duplicate of the Louvre's pyramid in the middle above the metro station. A nice place to just sit and enjoy people watching or wandering and eating outside.

“L'Enfant is Le' Funk of a Place to Eat!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This so-called esquisite mall has a very low, budget appeal when it comes to eatery choices. First, the selections are very few and extremely less flexible of alternative dietary choices. I say, add a little more pizzazz to the place by at least adding an Italian place to even the playing field a bit. Then, there are a bunch of vacant storefronts that give it a "ghost town" appeal. I lose my appetite and desire to eat lunch eat time I visit. It's time for re-development, people!
