    Vegetarians: limited options. They say farm to table but that's mostly meat (they butcher meat on premise). You can eat: mushroom risotto with capers, spring pea flatbread and all the great desserts.

    The duck is amazing

    Great croissant

  • Ruth K.

    Not sure what the big deal is. Like the concept but the static menu bores me. Unsure of the freshness of the produce or food handling. I have always felt ill after eating there.

    Delicious food with an unparalleled beer selection. Seriously, like 500 varieties of bottled beer or something ridiculous.

    Upscale bar food decent great atmosphere

    All locally sourced plates!! Bread was amazing & made fresh! Fig and prosciutto pizza was tasty. Wish we did the tasting menu! Loved the beer selection. You should definitely sampled a few!

    Washingtonian says don't miss: Arctic-char tartare; charcuterie board; fig-and-prosciutto flatbread; bratwurst burger; honey-roasted duck breast; peanut-butter cheesecake; fried chicken and waffles.

    Following an overnight cooling, the mac and cheese sticks are cut info 3-1/4-inch-by-1-inch bricks, coated with garlic-infused panko bread crumbs, fired and served with a sweet tomato relish. Read more

    If you are a beer enthusiast you should select your own beers rather than go with the beer menu that is offered to go with the food.

    Erik Brok · November 19, 2014
  • Cheeky M.

    This is the most pretentious and over-priced place I've ever been to. The food was tasteless. The have an "ethos" that takes 15 mins to explain. Go upstairs to Churchkey instead.

    Cheeky McBumface · November 19, 2014
  • Arnaud R.

    Very good menu (flatbreads are amazing). Didn't try the beers but it seems to be a must do! Service was awesome and the food amazing.

    Service was pretty deficient. Slow. Unhelpful. And they bring the wrong things.

    Javier Arreola · September 14, 2014
  • Eric F.

    the chicken and waffles are really good, but not really worth the $$. French toast was dry and flavorless.

    Eric Francisco · September 5, 2014
  • Chuck B.

    And the chicken & waffles...DOUBLE amaze-balls crisped and dipped in syrup to perfection!

    The brat burger was amaze-balls!

    One of the best meals@of my life. The duck was fantastic + the truffle herbed Mac & cheese. Don't even get me started on the beer list.

    If you get the tasting menu, just get the beer pairings. It's always worth it.

    From Washingtonian: pecan-studded brioche sticky buns, sausage and fried egg on a crème fraîche biscuit, chicken and waffles

    Colleen N · January 11, 2014
  • Richie S.

    Beer list is extensive and impressive. Pairs well with a Sunday brunch of donuts and fried chicken

    Richie Stark · January 2, 2014

    Hours are listed incorrectly, they close on Sundays at 10pm. But are in fact closed on Mondays

    Amaretto french toast FTW

    Wow...maybe it will be better for dinner because Brunch was less than memorable.

    Very happy with the Tasting Menu! Ask for the beer that tastes like an expresso shot to go with desert

    Buger looks crazy good

    The charcuterie plate is a cut above most others I've had.

    Get the boozy brunch! Food is amazing, great service and Joel is awesome!

    Paula Paixao · March 31, 2013
  • Anna E.

    Don't go with the tasting menu without the beer pairing – especially the cheese and beer match stands out in my memory as perfect.

    Anna Ebbesen · February 10, 2013
  • Wally N.

    The food is wildly disappointing. Kind of shit. The duck is great, though.

    Wally N · January 21, 2013

    Inauguration drinking games! Sure the truffle mac & cheese and honey-glazed duck breast are also worth Instagramming, but it's mostly the 555 beers that keeps Birch & Barley a DC best. Read more

    An upstairs/downstairs, beer-focused restaurant and gastropub. At Birch & Barley, order the cavatelli and flounder tartare; at Church Key, Tater Tots and charcuterie.

    The best brunch ever! Will come again!

    Andrew · December 23, 2012
  • Audrey A.

    AWESOME, knowledgable staff...thanks Zach! Flatbread is a safe bet, but venture out as it's all tasty. LOVED the skate wing. Everything is seasonal, so menu is constantly changing.

    Audrey A · December 22, 2012
  • Jenn

    One of my favorite brunches in the city. Reserve a table in advance and if space is tight call and ask to be placed at the Chef's bar overlooking the kitchen. The homemade donuts are a must.

    Jenn · December 9, 2012
  • Tara C.

    Best gluten free restaurant in DC. They will gladly alter any dish, have a separate GF bread plate (with delicious surprises), and pages of allergy-free beers. Servers very knowledgable, too!

    Tara C · November 30, 2012
  • David B.

    Best chicken & waffles ever!

    Goat cheese cheesecake is heavenly. Screw the calories. No regrets.
