We picked this spot, never having had Ethiopian Food and the reviews were great.

We are so glad we did. The Hostess/Server was amazingly helpful and took the time to explain Ethiopian food and how it's cooked and eaten and what the best way to sample it is.

Her advice was perfect, the ambience was perfect, the food was delicious and extremely good value.

We think this place is amazing and totally worth a visit.

This was quite an unexpected and delicious discovery! The food was amazing—cooked to order. The veggie combo that I ordered was delicious—I could taste the different flavors in each dish (at other restaurants, the tastes tend to blend together). My friends ordered some meat dishes and were very pleased. The chef even modified the kitfo (beef tartare-type dish) to suit a first-time eater! Rahel was our server—super friendly and kind. You can order the dishes with injera (they also have real teff injera!) or other starches like rice. So there is something for everyone and even those who are skeptical of injera. My friends and I had a delightful evening at Caffe Utopia.

We ate in the restaurant in the early afternoon and we practically had the place to ourselves. It was nice and quiet. The food came out fast and was delicious. Had the meat lovers Tibs. The mushroom stew is a hit. Definitely a must return to again.

We love this cozy family restaurant. The service is awesome and I bet that you will always feel welcome to be dine in. The food, including the vegan dish, is tasty.

They were very pleasant owners. I made it to the soft opening. The food was fresh. They extended kitchen hours since I was driving from District Heights Md. The owners were very appreciative of us just coming. We are from DC and love food. Ethiopian being one.
