Ardeo+Bardeo, located in the historic district of Cleveland Park -- four miles from the White House -- is a neighborhood favorite serving modern American cuisine. The restaurant underwent a major renovation in November 2010 to enhance the modern bistro and wine bar, uniting the two restaurants with a 24-seat island bar. Executive Chef Nate Garyantes has crafted a menu which features cured meats, soups and salads, savory snacks, seasonal vegetables dishes and brick oven baked flatbreads. Ardeo+Bardeo has become a virtual “Who’s Who” of Washington. Those who frequent include Madeleine Albright, Jim Lehrer, Alan Greenspan and the former first family, the Clintons.

"Our recent meal at Ardeo-Bardeo was certainly not memorable. In a word, the place looks "tired" although we recall the major renovation not that many years ago. Initially we did not even see a server and when she did appear, the service was perfunctory, at best. Our entrees were fine although the pasta in the short ribs ravioli was undercooked. Overall, there just isn't much to comment on and while we do visit this restaurant, those visits will probably be even more infrequent. There are so many good choices in DC, and within this restaurant group; we will more likely go to Rasika than revisit Ardeo-Bardeo."

"We always love the dim sum brunch at The Source. And, we think Jorge is a fabulous server, so this time we asked him to make our selections and we got to sit back and enjoy the surprises as the different dishes arrived. Jorge did a spectacular job, and the food was outstanding as it always is... Particularly memorable on this visit were the mussels, the duck bao buns which are always amazing, but were even better than usual, and the creamy, smooth rice pudding for dessert. Jorge, thank you for a wonderful experience!"

"Our first visit to Boqueria was for brunch on a Saturday. Charming space, attentive service, and terrific food. The quantity was quite large (both ordered the tortilla) and the accompanying salad was fantastic. Definitely on our list for a repeat visit, and soon."

Jaleo brings alive the spirit and flavors of Spain with a menu reflecting the rich regional diversity of classical and contemporary Spanish cuisine, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés. Jaleo offers an impressive assortment of tapas, the traditional small dishes of Spain, as well as savory paellas, superb sangrias and a fine selection of Spanish wines and Sherries in a festive, casual atmosphere.

"Lovely relaxed meal at Jaleo before the start of the holiday rush. While we missed Jorge, the service provided by Carlos was excellent. New favorite of the day was a chick pea stew with beautiful hints of smoked paprika. Of course each dish was perfect, so trying to single out just one for applause is always difficult."

"Jaleo was slammed on a blustery Wednesday night and even with a reservation, we waited for a bit. To sit in Jorge's section is worth the wait and our guest from out of town was "wowed" by the wonderful food and exceptional service. The garlic shrimp, sauteed spinach and salad of shredded brussels sprouts, apricots and sherry vinaigrette were the stars of the evening. Thanks for a great time, Jorge!"

"Our visitors from PA loved everything they tasted during the Saturday dim sum brunch. It would be difficult to point to a favorite since they commented favorably on each dish. The clams and the duck buns may have been the stand-outs, but everything was perfect, as always. And the service, outstanding!"

"Although we no longer live in the area, a recent visit gave us an opportunity to have lunch at Season's. The ambiance is just perfect with views of beautiful trees and plants. The food is quite good, if not outstanding, and the service excellent."

Under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés, Zaytinya offers an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines served up in a sleek and modern setting. Shared small plates, creative cocktails and unique Mediterranean wines make this spot one of DC’s top dining destinations.

"We realized it had been several months since our last meal at Zaytinya, so we picked a spectacular fall day to enjoy a leisurely lunch. Billie provided excellent service and our meal, as always, was fabulous. We are still crazy for the Brussels sprouts and the horta salata which we would happily eat daily. The mix of mushrooms with dates was lovely and a new menu item since we were last there. The squid, extra crispy, was divine! So glad we returned!"

"A lovely lunch at The Source after a morning at the National Gallery. So nice to have such a fabulous lunch option near one of our favorite museums. The entrees of drunken noodles with shrimp and the steamed salmon with bok choy were both delicious and beautifully complemented by the "riot of vegetables"."
