The Gryphon DC features an assortment of premium aged meats, a full raw bar and specially crafted cocktails to accompany the "something for everyone" dining atmosphere.<br /><br />Whether on a date for two, or in a group setting, our social house concept provides guests with a plated-to-share experience with "pre-cut" meats designed for smaller portioned upscale meals with unparalleled tastings and pairings.. <br /><br />As DC's premier social house, the Gryphon encourages its guest to socialize through eating and drinking, while we provide a lively, energetic and fun atmosphere. Our goal is to make our guest feel as if they have been invited to a well planned neighborhood dinner party with close friends and family. This is why we consider ourselves an all-in-one destination, perfect for any occasion. Come join us at The Gryphon... and be apart of the experience.

"The Gryphon is now our favorite place for steak! We have been to various other steak houses in DC but the cajun rib-eye we had at The Gryphon is our favorite anywhere."

"Loved the variation on chips - fried yucca, plantains, malanga root chips to go with the salsa & guacamole.
I had the braised beef tacos with yucca fries as a side. The tacos were so moist and flavorful. The yucca fries were some of the best I have ever had. Crispy on the outside with a soft middle - perfect with the accompanying aji pepper aioli.
My husband had the Feijoada stew. His comment on his dish was "I don't think I would ever have anything else here - this was soooo good."
For dessert we shared an order of the churros. Wow - great way to end the meal.
I can't wait to go back and try more items!!"
