Gatsby is a reimagined American diner by KNEAD Hospitality + Design in collaboration with Mah-Ze-Dahr Bakery. With favorites like the famous monte cristo sandwich, fried chicken or today's blue plate special, Gatsby brings you back to the days of the diner, but from a fresh perspective. Whether you crave breakfast at any time of day or a smashburger & a milkshake, Gatsby is the perfect place. Our desserts were created by famed NYC Bakery, Mah-Ze-Dahr, and cannot be missed! Located at the corner of Half and N Streets, directly in front of Nats Park's Centerfield Gate, and overlooking the ballpark from our second floor dining room, Gatsby is the perfect pre/post game venue from which to celebrate.

    Great experience at Gatsby! The food & drinks are delicious and the restaurant has such a cool ambiance. Our service was fantastic, little slow but they kept apologizing for that and ended up giving us a complimentary appetizer AND dessert. The views from the upper floor of Nationals Park is amazing. We will definitely be back again in the future.

    We stopped in on a Friday night, it was fairly busy but the manager sat us, got our drink orders, and was very apologetic about the wait. I am not sure what kind of standard people here are use to but the wait was virtually non-existent. The aesthetic at Gatsby is magnificent. Our server, Angie, made dinner 100% amazing. She was so funny, friendly, and had great recommendations. The “sexy spaghetti” was fantastic. Thank you so much for a great night!

    Food was average, it’s a pub after all. Not worth a specific trip while you are visiting DC, maybe if you are by the area and just want a beer and appetizers. Expected more for the price.

    For what we paid, 90 mins seemed short for the all you can drink… I would have been much more satisfied (and probably would have drank just as much) if we were given 120 minutes… it felt like we had to rush and drink quick to get our moneys worth which just isn’t fun.

    The food was very ordinary and ovepriced for what was served. I had a 27 $ tuna salad which was 6 pieces of bad quality tuna and tiny pieces of stuff lost in rabbit food. My husband had a flavorless Monte Cristo. We will not be back.

    We went to an event at Nationals Park and thought we would try out Gatsby’s for the first time. We had to move our reservation several times because of additional info coming in about the event, but we ended up arriving a little early. We were taken upstairs to a cute corner table where we were able to stash our bags and still be comfortable. I want to emphasize that we were very pleased that the table and seat “fit” us. We are both short and we often have an issue where the seat is too low and the table hits somewhere around our armpits. So it was a pleasant surprise to be able to sit at the table normally. The food was delicious! I debated on a few choices and decided that I chose well (veggie quiche). My companion thoroughly enjoyed her salad (Shrimp Cobb?) and raved about the complex combination of flavors. The prices are high, but commensurate with other restaurants in the area. We will definitely be back!

    How can a restaurant be out of several types of wine and not have coffee because their machine was not working? Overall not a great experience. First time there and probably last time there.
