Enjoy a fantastic culinary experience and unequalled skyline views through two-story windows high above the Potomac River. The contemporary interior features chrome, glass, suede, and wood with accents of granite. Check out the critically-acclaimed Sunday Kitchen Buffet Brunch. The Roof Terrace Restaurant & Bar is located on the Roof Terrace level of the Kennedy Center above the Hall of Nations.

"The Roof Terrace has always been a fairly good, but overpriced restaurant. Since it's so convenient when seeing a show at the Kennedy Center, it's always busy. In the past couple of years the food has improved almost to where it was around 15 years ago. The Tenderloin with frites is excellent, as is the rainbow trout. We love the spicy tuna tartare appetizer. The rolls are not as good as the nut rolls of years past, but they are excellent. Service is attentive, but I resent having the waiters pushing the entrees that management has told them to push. We overheard several waiters recommending the same entrees."

As Chicago’s only four-star Italian restaurant as rated by the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Magazine, the critically-acclaimed Spiaggia continues to evolve and modernize while remaining a leader for creative Italian cuisine. A complete redesign of the Dining Room and addition of the Spiaggia Lounge, paired with it's iconic views of Lake Michigan and Michigan Avenue, provide a setting unlike any other. Guests may explore a tasting menu, choose an a la carte experience and enjoy dramatically presented dishes and cocktails aperitivo-style in the Lounge.

"We were visiting Chicago for a few days, and Spiaggia was highly recommended to us. It was absolutely superb! We had the eight-course tasting menu, and all the courses were excellent. From the small cup of fresh pea soup, served as an amuse bouche, to the generous portion of lobster with watermelon appetizer, to the foie gras ravioli with uni, to the entree of suckling pig, to the assortment of desserts that are beyond description, it was an epicurean experience. One of the finest meals we've ever experienced at a restaurant. The cocktails were also perfect, and the service was impeccable. If there were a ten star rating I'd give Spiaggia ten stars."
