    We were celebrating our 5th Anniversary and we’re looking forward to dinner at the grill. Unfortunately we were seated in the very back room in a corner next to a table of 8 that were off the chart loud and at times unacceptable language. If not for these two things our experience would have been higher. Also, my eggplant lasagna was not completely hot.

    Terrible experience. We were walked through the restaurant and out to the atrium of the building that they are in, where there were extra tables set up. Awful. It was an atrium. Totally isolating and not nice. Food was very average. I was served the plainest Caesar salad I’ve ever had. Small serving size, bland Caesar dressing, and the croutons tasted stale/chewy. Huge disappointment.

    We have been here more than five times to celebrate special occasions- birthdays, anniversaries and family get togethers. This time around we did get good service because server was inattentive. The food was very good. The server took a long time to take first order of drinks so we ordered appetizer at the same time. In middle of eating appetizer we ordered daughter’s entree and happy hour oysters (18) when we could flag him down. Same issue to flag him down to provide drink refill. The server was busy chatting with guests in waiting area and serving guests but not tracking our orders. He was surprised the oysters were not delivered. Management graciously delivered oysters and provided as Complimentary. They were sent to another table by mistake and new order was placed. We did not want to order entrees because it would take too long and had loss appetite. We ordered conserva tin yellowfin tuna belly on recommendation by server. It was very good. It will take some time for us to return.

    After many visits in the past, we decided that this was our last trip to Old Ebbits. The place is too loud...so loud, in fact, that 2 people seated in a booth had to yell at each other to hear. Not pleasant. Though the oysters were good, and the food properly cooked, the menu is uninspired. For a restaurant with such history and a dignified interior, the patrons were absurdly undignified, both in dress and in language. It feels like a tourist trap these days, rather than one of the finest dining institutions in Washington. We are sad to see this decline.

    Food is ok. Nothing to remember for a long time. Service is awful! Servers do not remember who ordered what, sea food fork is not offered for oysters. No smiles. Cannot help but get a feeling that they want customers to eat fast so they can sit next ones. Will not go back! For such $ total disappointment

    We made two reservations, 30 minutes apart, in order to ensure we had a table for all 7 of us in our group and the hostess was kind enough to get us all at one table. We were sat in an atrium area outside of the main restaurant, were it seems larger groups are sat, outside of the hustle and bustle of the main restaurant. Our waitress was kind, patient, and was able to help each of us select the perfect cocktail for our tastes. Our dinners were all spectacular and there was no need to use a steak knife on my filet, it was that tender. It was just the experience we all wanted and were expecting. My only note to the team would be to serve food a little quicker, at least mine, was not at a proper serving temperature overall. This did not diminish our experience or our overall satisfaction.

    Overall everything was good. Food was delicious!!! Service was good. Only disappointment was our cocktails, they were so strong/loaded with alcohol that we couldn’t really enjoy them. Even adding water to them didn’t really help. And the cocktails were a pretty penny too.

    A great place for a business or casual lunch. The main dining room can be noisy. We were seated in a quieter section by the back bar which was more conducive to conversation. Excellent service and attention. Food is always excellent.
