    Dined @ The Old Ebbitt Grill and was highly disappointed. A lot of hype, nice atmosphere but not worth the price tag. Historic building does not mean a 5 star meal.

    Deborah is the best! She's really funny, honest, and great to chat with. Don't decide what you're eating based on the menu you find online. The menu in store has way better suggestions.

    If you're having trouble getting dinner reservations and your schedule allows, try for lunch. We were seated within five minutes on the day of the Easter Egg Roll. Delicious drinks & food.

    Nothing good. Restaurant is way to expensive and the food isn't that good. Staff tries to screw you and take advantage of poor knowledge of the restaurant.

    Sat us at a table right beside the kitchen door even though there was a good amount of seating available. Oysters were good. They forgot a spoon for the sauce though. Attention to detail is lacking.
