JoJo Restaurant & Bar
The vibe at JoJo was very chill and the atmosphere was cool and laid back. It was just what my girls and I needed to end the long work week. The strawberry margaritas ordered at my table were reportedly *very* strong, but enjoyed by all. The calamari appetizer was nothing extraordinary, but served its purpose; the buffalo wings were served hot and fresh! The downstairs portion of the restaurant is pretty tight and definitely not for the claustrophobic. Because it is small, be prepared for the live jazz band to dominate your ear drums…you WILL have to yell at the people you’re dining with in order to carry on a conversation. I could tell there were a lot of regulars at the bar and a few small groups that felt right at home. Overall, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and having a good time. And that included my party…until we ordered our entrees that NEVER came! We placed our order and waited approximately 30 minutes without so much as an acknowledgment from the server. Since it was a Friday night, the restaurant was full, and one of my friends ordered a steak cooked medium well, we gave them the benefit of the doubt and patiently awaited the arrival of our food. After many minutes passed with no sign of our food, we flagged the server down to inquire about the status of our order. She assured us that it was coming out shortly. But after we insisted that she check on it, she learned that the printer in the kitchen had jammed. Even though she put our order in, the kitchen had no record of it and hadn’t even STARTED preparing it after 30 minutes of waiting. This was very disappointing since one of my friends had to leave for another engagement and didn’t have time to wait even longer for the kitchen to prepare her meal. My other friend and I decided to wait it out since we were already there, starving, and didn’t have enough energy to walk to another place and start the process all over again. So we RE-placed our order and waited even longer for it to come out. I wish I could say that it was worth the wait, but it wasn’t. The crab cakes looked like meatballs and taste like salmon cakes. There was a lot of breading, but no crab in sight. The Mahi Mahi was also a little underwhelming, tasting more like catfish than any Mahi Mahi I’d ever had before. The evening started out good, but unfortunately, the latter part of the evening overshadowed what otherwise would have been a great dining experience. We were offered free dessert for our trouble, but that did no good to my friend who had to leave before she even got her entrée. Bottom line: Go for the jazz and the atmosphere, not for the food or the service. And MAKE SURE that you have your server double-check that the order was received by the kitchen. Had we not made her check on our order, we could have been sitting there all night.

Tune Inn
Awesome Friendly super casual Dive Bar. Out of time. Stuffed animals along the wall. Everything from union workers to veterans and Capitol Hill staffers to drag queens. Classic bar food. Lunch specials were much better than I expected. Irish omelet is chock full of shredded corn beef. Fried pickles were a bit greasy for my taste as was the deep fried hamburger. Crab cake was surprisingly good. Wish the fries were not battered. Bonnie the bartender is an absolute sweetheart. Expect classic country music and bar sing-a-long songs on jukebox.

"Wonderful food and atmosphere".........,This is my favorite restaurant in DC. I had a great experience for lunch today and it was very enjoyable. The staff was friendly and so unique!. The store manager was really nice, she was helpful and patient! and the food was fantastic. I ordered winter Quinoa salad and green juice, they are absolutely delicious.I highly recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Old Ebbitt Grill
The food here is solid. Reasonably priced, professionally staffed. Nothing that will wow you but you are unlikely to be disappointed. A Washington classic and well run part of the Clyde's Restaurant Group. Clearly a favorite of Hill staffers. The interior décor is one of a kind and I highly recommend this place to a visitor who may only be here a short time.

I've come to this restaurant at least once a year for 5 years. Generally I have lost bed the food, service and atmosphere. Today I was VERY disappointed. Good was ok but for the cost should have been better. There vice was horrible. The waitress never came back to table after taking our order. So sad. I wanted to give a great review!

If you enjoy watching a late night drunken cat fight, can navigate through homeless folks and don't mind ordering through bulletproof glass then this may be for you. Oddly enough though the Chinese food is kind of second rate here. Chicken wings and Cheesesteaks are a much better option. Cheap, but I am occasionally glad it's available.

Stans Restaurant & Bar
A Dive, not thug but older players. More of a drinking spot. I thought the crowd was blue collar but friendly, not pretentious. Caters to local predominately African American older crowd. Serves drinks in two parts as a shot in a glass and you add your mixer yourself. They serve and are known for chicken wings.

Driftwood Kitchen
Food was fantastic, & the service was nice. Carmel corn appetizer is a must! or their avocado hummus. 3/7 got their gnocchi, and LOVED it. Their ribs were good as well. Interesting flavor combinations, made the food an experience! Compliments to the chef for sure!!!

Rasoi Indian Kitchen
We stumbled upon Rasoi and feel in love with the food. I wanted to go back for lunch the next day. Nothing like I have ever had, I did not want to stop eating. It was amazing. I am a huge fan of Indian, and this has got to be one of the top resturants! Try IT

Hank's Oyster Bar
Friendly staff, cool décor, hand crafted cocktails. Specials on oysters and a great casual to dressy casual lazy weekend spot. Excellent seafood. Nice sized shrimp cocktail. Love the staff love the brunch. The church lady punchbowl glasses are a trip.
