Mediterranean
A revived nightlife scene in Dupont Circle will continue to grow next week with the arrival of a flashy, neon-lit club that serves a Mediterranean food menu and lavender martinis under a super-sized crystal chandelier fit for Vegas.

The Mayflower Club opened in the same building that used to house a prominent Prohibition-era speakeasy of the same name. The new two-level restaurant and lounge rounds fills out a complex at 1223 Connecticut Avenue NW.
Chef Alex Oradei complements Mayflower Club’s decadent decor with an 8-ounce prime strip steak encrusted in gold leaf and topped with shaved truffles. His steakhouse experience also comes across in a voluptuous burger and lamb chops.
Oradei plays up his Mediterranean roots by sending out canapé towers lined with bacon-wrapped dates, small cones of tuna tartare, and other elegant drinking snacks. The menu also features halloumi fries with harissa mayo, grilled octopus, branzino, and langoustine prawns with black rice and cream of saffron.

    It was a good vibe. More of a lounge that a club. It’s mostly for birthday dinners and celebrations.

    We weren’t seated until 45 minutes after our reservation. My reservation was at 9:30 and the restaurant said that guests had been there since 6:30 although there was a 2 hour table limit. A hostess informed us that if we waited for a table we might forfeit our reservation. After speaking to a manager for clarity, that was not the case. The manager said that we could dine outside (absolutely not) or wait for our table. After deciding to wait for our table we asked to be compensated for and we were offered complimentary drinks. The food was good but our service was rushed.

    Food is overpriced and mediocre. The hostess didn’t acknowledge us when we came in. Our waitress was very nice though. Best to just go to the club rather than have dinner here.

    Terrible experience we did not stay! Our reservation was for 9 PM we arrive at 8:45, we were then told by the ladies at the front counter that we would need to wait 10 to 15 minutes no problem, 10-15 minutes turned into 25-30 minutes when we went to ask they told us to bear with them, mind you we see folks walking in and being seated I take the establishment is run by or owned by Middle Easterns as those were the ones who were going in and being seated and attend to. After 30 minutes plus, we were escorted into see noisy dining room and given a seat in the most obscure places when we asked to be moved they told us they didn’t have any more seats however there was a more inviting table behind us. A few mins after they came to seat someone there we were told by the server that he is a partner/ investor in the establishment. The place is very disorganized, customer service is terrible and we did not and will not spending our money there. They need to work on treating all patrons with respect!

    Great place to go to before you head out for the night . Restaurant turns into a club after 11 , we sat up stairs a it was less noisy , Besides the waiter saying that he couldn’t take a group photo of us because the manager doesn’t like them to do it by experience was great.

    Came here for a girls night. We absolutely loved our server, McKenna! However, it was an odd experience and not what I expected after seeing this restaurant all over social media. There was no host/hostess at the entrance when I walked in so I awkwardly waited for a few minutes, until walking past the entrance. I entered the restaurant where the bar was and no one greeted me or seemed to ask if I needed help or had a reservation (which I did). I had to walk up to a bar tender who awkwardly wondered off to see if he could seat me. Overall, nice restaurant but not sure if I’d run back anytime soon. During the week is pretty low key.

    Myself and four of my friends attended The Mayflower for my Birthday dinner. We had an amazing time. The atmosphere was great and our server was very attentive. I had the salmon dish with purée potatoes and three Cherry blossoms margaritas. Others had the oysters, lamb chops, peri peri chicken and truffled fries. I sampled a little bit of everyone’s food and it was all good. The vibe was upbeat, grown and sexy. The decor was super luxurious and photo op worthy. This is a great place for a girls night out or date night. 10/10 recommend.

    Reservations was for 5:30pm, we arrived on time only to be told by the rudest security I have met that the restaurant wasn’t ready to let guests in and suggested we can leave if we want to. Even when we asked to sit and wait he will not allow it, someone who does business with the restaurant (Fred Events) asked us to follow him to the bar to wait, the security guy still wanted to stop us from entering and walked to the bar to ask that we wait at the entrance even though the bartender said it was ok- we stayed at the bar. It took another 30 minutes to be seated, and we received an apology from the manager as well as free drinks for keeping us waiting, but the unprofessional attitude showed us will stay with me forever. Food was good, but I can’t see myself returning to this restaurant.

    Went for the Mother’s Day pre-fixed menu. We sat almost 30 min before even getting water. Omar our waiter, only came to the table after I politely got up and asked twice. When Omar arrived he sighed deeply, was very short and seemed annoyed with us even though we were the ones waiting. The staff overall kinda seems stressed. Our other server was very warm and polite. We finally ordered…it was 4 of us in the group, all 4 had issues. All of my food was cold, there were parts of my mom’s and aunts meals missing, my cousin ordered coffee that never came. Then they forgot our 4th course only realizing it after prematurely asking us did we want the bill. The last issue was that you had to prepay for the meal $75 per person, yet they still gave me a bill for the full amount. We did have drinks but it was only a small fraction. So they removed the charge, but kept an $80 gratuity…I had also already pre-paid gratuity. So had to send it back again. The decor was lovely, but overall this was a poor experience. Omar did bring shots to us and the table next to us…unfortunately the damage had already been done. Not sure if it was because of the holiday, but I won’t be back to try it again unfortunately.

    Mother’s Day. A simple brunch turned into 3 hours of begging for our food or a round of drinks. Our waiter (when he would grace us with his presence) smelled so strongly of pot that my daughter had to hold her breath. While the manager at the end of the afternoon did comp two glasses of champagne after I complained that the waiter automatically added 20% gratuity, my wife (the mother in Mothers Day) never even received the dessert that we prepaid and waited 45 minutes for. Happy Mother’s Day to her…

This is some of the best food I’ve ever had it’s very hard to get everything perfect beginning to end but they did it from the seafood tower to our dinner to our dessert everything was exceptional.

    The ambiance is beautiful and it had nice music. However you have to make a reservation just to get in and somehow I still waited 20+ minutes for a seat. I was sat under the stairs so it was pretty loud when people walk downstairs. I got the filet mignon with spinach and potato purée. The spinach was sour, but the potatoes were good. My steak was practically rare(asked for medium) and also tasted burnt(not sure how). However the server was nice and she was really helpful. My friend had the mussels and said they were really good! The servers were great and timely once we were seated !

    First impression when I walked in -hostess was not friendly at all. She was on her phone while I was talking to her and I had to repeat my question. Once dinner time was over every single chair was removed from the room including chairs at the bar, you have to pay for a table if you want to sit. They weren't welcoming to guests at all, treating people like everyone was there to cause trouble or something. They had an upstairs level to which access was blocked and you had to pay to go there. Meanwhile, earlier on, our waiter told us we could go there after dinner to take pictures etc. We reserved patio seating but apparently, their patio was just a small space at the entrance and we were way too dressed for that so we were seated in the main level dining room. Very deceptive. We will not be going back! Especially, since wit was a long drive from Ellicott City to get there.

    I’ll give this spot a definite 4 stars for the picture aesthetic but the food. Ehhh. The food is not good and the wait staff is terrible. I don’t think I’ll be back. A few times our food was cold and our waiter was not attentive at all. The Cherry Blossom Margarita was amazing. That’s the ONE positive out of the entire experience. If you go, take nice pics but that’s really all. Oh, the dress code? There is none. I saw people in there with dirty white Air Force Ones and tee shirts. “Business Casual”? Lmao yeah right

    The restaurant is really nice and the drinks were good. My issue with this restaurant was with the service, it appeared to me that there was only one waiter servicing the top floor. It took forever for the waiter to greet us, it took another 25 minutes after the greeting for him to come and ask us what we wanted to drink. Another 15 minutes to ask about our appetizers. Realizing that service was an issue we ordered our entrees along with our appetizers. I got the spicy shrimp which I enjoyed however it was on the oily side and my husband ordered the chicken skewers they were also good. I had no complaints with the appetizers. I lied the shrimp was oily. It took about 30 minutes for our entree to come, we ordered the grilled mix I probably got the name wrong but it had lamb, prawns, steak, chicken and fries. We ordered 2 sides which were the sautéed spinach and sautéed mushrooms. Both sides were good. But they did not come with our meal, the waiter kept sending someone to bring the sides but the sides never came. Maybe they were in Ukraine I don’t know.

    Cocktails are disgusting, Food was mediocre at best, service was poor. Our waiter wasn't attentive at all. He asked what I wanted to drink and before I could answer he was across the room at another table. Bathrooms were disgusting. The only thing keeping this place open is the ambience and aesthetics.
