    This place is not pet-friendly at all!! Got turned down with my puppy :(

  • Lisa Z.

    Dessert menu is absolutely amazing! Pastry Chef Casto Unson is talented and extremely good at complimenting flavors and textures. Definitely get dessert!

    LOVE the patio! Tucked away in the middle of Penn Quarter/Chinatown, this place is nothing like its surroundings. It's an oasis. Great place to bring visitors/out-of-towners.

    Poste Brasserie is known for many things, from its Poste Roast and its outdoor garden with weekday happy hours, to its Sunday brunch with a full Bloody Mary bar. Read more

    Washingtonian recommends the onion-soup burger.

    the chorizo and mushroom tartines were so good we had to have encores :) they paired very well with the Francois Villard (Rhone, FR) 2012 Syrah and the Punto Final (Mendoza, AR) 2012 Malbec

    Poste miraculously feels miles away from the tourist chaos outside its walls.

    The brasserie-style fare and not to be missed truffled frites accompany a stellar cocktail program.

    The truffle fries are a masterpiece. You won't be disappointed, unless you're a terrorist.

    Not easy to access if you have a disability. The only ramp is 1 1/2 blocks from the valet parking and it was covered with snow and ice 5 days after the snow storm.Then, the door was locked.

    The Chesapeake Eggs Benedict with crabcakes was great for brunch! The duckfat doughnuts, on the otherhand, were not all they were 'quacked-up' to be. Very crisp surface, dense and a heavy aftertaste.

    Love the bartender Sev but the lunch special is weak in terms of options!

    Rajani Prasad · July 25, 2013
  • Lauren M.

    The patio is great for smallish groups, dates or after work crews. Be sure to ask about their infused vodkas and in-house infused vodkas.

    Get the duck fat doughnuts!

    Escargot, truffle fries, and pot au feu are just some of the locally sourced yet Parisian inspired dishes you’ll find at this bright and airy restaurant. Read more · July 2, 2013
  • Maureen S.

    Order the truffle fries and popcorn - so good! Also, note that there is essentially no restroom - you have to go through into the hotel and up to the next floor.

    The outdoor space smells like rotten eggs.

    Whoever said $4 happy hour truffle fries at happy hour is a liar. But they are good, despite being $$

    This is a great watering hole - lots of sun, great service and exceptional cocktails. Reminds me of the legendary, but now defunct, Post Bar in East Lansing.

    John Schlinker · April 21, 2013
  • Carol S.

    Highly overpriced for what you get. Breakfast $66.83 w/o tip. Eggs were good but son's waffle dry and not worth $17!! Waiter was good though.

    Carol Sormilic · April 18, 2013

    Bacon infused Bloody Mary!

    Service out on the patio has gotten so much better with the new outdoor bar! Grab a glass of vino, some sliders & truffle fries.
