    The restaurant was understaffed but our waiter made the best of it. We didn’t mind the slower pace as we had no place to be and all night to get there. Food was tasty although the mushrooms were a little cold. Wine selection was good and our cocktails were good.

    The muscles and pork belly buns were delicious. The ribs were okay according to my husband. I ordered the salmon with pea purée and fingerling potatoes. Let me tell you about the salmon, pea purée, and the potatoes. The salmon was cooked properly, the potatoes were bland, and I was not a fan of the pea purée. I know how it’s suppose to look and and taste for I make it at home often. The peas had a sour, kind of like a “spoiled” taste. My husband and I spent all day in the DC area looking at the monuments, thus I didn’t really eat much but dinner. When we got back to the Airbnb, I puked all my food out. It did not sit well with me and I didn’t feel great. I’ve never had this feeling before. The only thing I can blame was my main meal. Besides the food not sitting well, the service was quick and friendly. I’m sure we won’t return based on my experience.

    Entertaining business guests from out of town. Restaurant ran out of several menu items before 6pm. Burgers still partially frozen when served. Two orders out of five completely wrong. Beverage glasses consistently empty. Also, they won't split your check.

    Low key restaurant in hotel. Awesome customer service. Fresh food. Was not a fan of the sangria. I would give 9 out of 10.

    I needed to make a reservation to accommodate 11 people and there weren't many places to choice from. It was my first time dinning at Potomac Social Tavern and I was very pleased with the experienced. Half of our party was late but the restaurant was very accommodating and patient. Our server was great, I can't remember his name but it started with M and he were glasses. He always checked to see if we needed anything and our drinks stayed topped off. This restaurant was great for a big group, drinks were good and food was pretty good as well. I would definitely recommend it if you have a big group.

    This restaurant met my expectations on my initial visit. During her vacation, my companion stayed in the Crowne Plaza Crystal City. We chose this restaurant without hesitation in search of dining options. The restaurant provides quick service, good meals, and friendly staff. The manager personally resolved a problem I had with the dessert menu. Due of its location, this is my personal bar. The staff delivers prompt response, and the food and beverages are great. Experiences vary based on staffing levels and the day, but I recommend the restaurant.

    At first it was hard to locate the place because it was in a somewhat secluded area with only one sign by Crowne Plaza but we eventually found it. Our waiter was really nice. He came promptly and took our orders. We were a party of 7 with 3 kids and he handled it well for this birthday occasion. The prices weren’t bad either.

    Happy to find Potomac Social Tavern in the Crystal City food abyss, but I can’t say this was a particularly successful dining adventure. Despite not being at all crowded, it took at least 45 minutes for our meal to arrive. And when it did, it wasn’t pretty. There were 10 of us, so a large portion of the menu was represented and I don’t believe anyone was particularly thrilled. I can personally attest to the Asian Chicken Salad as being basically inedible. I tried someone’s fried calamari and it was super salty.

    I ordered sticky ribs. The ribs came out as if they poured BBQ sauce on them and brought the plate out. I was able to rub the sauce off with a fork. There were inconsistency with tenderness; maybe because the ribs were so thick. Were not sticky ribs at all. I actually threw them away :(. They could have been good if they had allowed them to cook longer with the BBQ sauce on them.

    Pros: Hostess is nice and smells good. The rigatoni is bomb!! Cons: Everything else. The shrimp tostada had not a single taste of shrimp. Our meatball came out room temperature or some bits were even cold-ish. The steak was rough. The service is slow despite many staff members and not many customers. Not worth a visit whatsoever.
