"iRicci is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. The food is remarkable, the ambiance superb and the waitstaff and support staff among the best around. it is nice to be recognized, thanked for the business and truly appreciated. The waitstaff never fails to inform my guests, many of whom have never dined here, of the preparation and ingredients of each and every dish and make excellent reccmmmendations based upon their likes. This is one restaurant everyone should visit if you want a good meal and excellent service."

"The Capital Grille continues to be at the top of my list of Washington's best restaurants. The food and service are among the best I've experienced and the ambiance is exquisite. If you can get into the Wine Room, do. I've never had anything there I didn't love."

"I've dined here several times. The one thing that sticks out to me is the calibur of the waitstaff. Just not what you'd expect from a restaurant charging these prices."

Carmine’s is a family style, value-driven restaurant concept with locations in NYC, NJ, Nassau Bahamas, and Washington DC. Restaurateur Artie Cutler created Carmine’s with one goal in mind: to open a restaurant that would serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast, featuring extra large portions of home-style antipasto, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on extra large platters designed for sharing. Carmine’s is the perfect place to casually enjoy friends and family over great food and wine, with excellent service, the way it used to be at grandma’s house.

"The food at Carmine's is excellent. Authentic Italian cuisine. Service could be a bit better, but wasn't bad. If you have a group, request one of the smaller side rooms, as it does tend to get loud. Prices are good and wine list is more than adequate. Great place for out of town guests."

"I happened upon this restaurant recently, and so glad I did. it is relatively new and tucked away on K street. The food, service and ambiance could not have been better. The Osso Bucco is among the best I have had. The decor is modern, upscale and attractive. I will definitely be going back again, and very soon."
