“Consistently excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

As local residents we have eaten at the Buckley House many times, and find the food and service to be consistently excellent. This is no accident -- the owner/operator/chef is focused on using high-quality ingredients cooked and presented beautifully. Items off the regular menu and special daily offerings provide substantial variety, and the Middle Eastern lunch buffet offered during cool-weather months is outstanding. Eating on the patio in back during the warm-weather months is also delightful.

Excellent lunch buffet. Many choices. Enjoy your meal in a historic old home. Good for vegetarians too.

“Stellar American cuisine with a hint of Middle eastern influence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Everything we ate was magnificently prepared. Although this restaurant is characterized as Middle Eastern, it is really America/continental cuisine with a few Middle Eastern touches. The presentation is beautiful. Too bad there is not more on the menu from the rich Middle Eastern traditions, particularly for vegetarians. There is only one veg item on the menu and it is pasta. At $18 for an artfully arranged pile of fusilli or $24 for the cheese tortellini in red sauce, that's some pretty expensive pasta. So many possibilities missed! Desserts (we had the decadent flourless chocolate torte and the mango custard, which was lightly scented with rose water) are truly outstanding, and the crabcakes were superior to any this Maryland resident has ever had. Bottom line: a very expensive restaurant, even by DC standards. mostly worth it, but could do much better by vegetarians, and for those who might like to explore the grand Levantine traditions more deeply.

“Beautiful historic restaurant”

Wow, Wow, Wow. I dined here with two business associates, and we were all impressed with our meals, the specials, and the service. Great classic atmosphere in a historic house.
