    The view is spectacular. Friendly staff. Food is okay. Modest-sized drinks are VERY overpriced: Bloody Mary was $15; Regular iced tea/$5; Mimosa/$15. Can't beat the view though.

    Great views!

  • Ellen S.

    The view and the cocktails are worth any wait. The food is hit or miss. Olives are great. Charcuterie plate was underwhelming.

    Great bar with great views.

    Good view, but overpriced drinks and a douchey crowd ruin the experience.

    Try to get a table in the quiet lounge if you want to avoid crowds and noise at the bar

    Food was alright but the views are incredible.

    Amazing view of DC

  • Christopher F.

    Great views of D.C. at the POV Rooftop. Great place to relax on a Sunday afternoon!

  • Robb F.

    Simply an unbelievable view of the monuments and white house that I can't believe nobody has ever told me about. Prices aren't as bad as you might think, given the view. $7 beers and $15 cocktails.

  • Vinnie D.

    Great lunch menu. Service was fair.

  • Parul B.

    Meh. Very underwhelming in every way

  • Morgan T.

    Amazing view. That's all this place is worth, a great view. At night they go 4 a 'club' vibe, but the music is bad. Ultimately only tourists and the old men trying to hook up with them come here.

    Great view in a nice spring day :)

    Great views of the White House. Dress to impress and make sure you have your douchebag repellent on.

    Peter Spadafore · November 23, 2014
  • John B.

    Best view in DC. Bring your wallet though as drinks are pricey

    John Baker · November 19, 2014
  • Lauren Y.

    Walk in and put your name down for a table. Grab and drink at the bar and wait. Get a text that your table is ready and continue with small bites and more drinks

  • Eric C.

    No question that this is the best view in Washington, D.C. Great place for before dinner drinks.

    The views!

    Take Dad to the POV lounge atop the W Hotel, where you can ply the old man with bottomless bellinis, show him spectacular views of the monuments, & let him graze to his heart’s content from the place. Read more

    The whole reason to come here is the outdoor patio with scenic views of most of the downtown DC monuments. Incredible location! The happy hour food and drinks are not bad too.

    David Derrick · August 20, 2014
  • Joshua H.

    Great place to hang out with friends on a weekend night and get a spectacular view of the Washington Monument and the White House.

    P.O.V. is open year-round. While lounging on a velvet banquette, savor some craft cocktails along with a small-plates menu inspired by world renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Read more

    A pitcher is economical for groups, but the drink choices are far too sweet for two people... like a diabetic's nightmare.

    Wonderful service for my week long stay on business.

    Fantastic view, terrible service.

    The service is dreadful, but people put up with it because of the view. Food is pretty good - the cheddar/jalapeño peppers and black pepper shrimp are standouts.

    A rooftop pool AND bar... with a view of The White House. Need we go on?

  • Dennis Z.

    Great view, but very slow service.

    Dennis Zimmermann · July 31, 2013

    The view can’t be beat, especially at sunset. Add creative cocktails (such as the Raspberry Gin Sour and Dark ‘n' Stormy) plus a roof terrace, and we’ve got the recipe for a perfect DC night out. Read more · July 1, 2013

    The bar at the W Hotel is known for the best views of the city. It is more notable than the hotel itself.

    ToryBurch · June 26, 2013
  • Matt D.

    Everyone mentions the view of the White House (which is great), but the view of the rest of the city is even better. Bring your camera with panoramic feature.

    Matt Dicker · May 28, 2013

    Order the strawberry lemonade! Delicious! Great views too

    House, deep house.

  • Aimee A.

    I really wanted to like this place because of the gorgeous view but everyone who works here is so rude. Won't ever be back. Heading to Old Ebbitt next door where they treat customers like humans.

    Expensive drink prices!
