Inattentive service. A radio playing in the background. Dried out potatoes. Over-cooked asparagus. So-so salmon. No plans for a return visit.

I went to this place for lunch. I had a glass of red wine and roasted chicken sandwich with pasta salad. Food was good. There is no wifi in the restaurant. If they can provide it, then it will be really useful.

We found this place by accident it being close to our hotel in Dupont Circle. It was thoroughly enjoyable on all counts. The Wagyu burger is terrific. The atmosphere was very pleasant and lively without being noisy. Service was excellent.

Found this place when I was looking for a nice Sunday brunch. I recommend the endless mimosas (in regular or cranberry) or Bloody Mary's. I ended up trying the Chicken and Waffles based on my bartenders' recommendation and they were excellent. The bourbon maple syrup topped the crisp chicken and waffles nicely. Based on the number of people there, it... More

Wagyu burgers, chicken and bacon mac and cheese, craft beers; Scion is contemporary American cuisine at its best. 2 blocks from Dupont Circle metro, it was quiet when we went that innocent night before America's historic election, and the food was fantastic. The restaurant's story is too. The scions in question are the daughters of Chinese immigrants who grew up... More

Walked in. Welcomed by super-fast-talking maitre d'. Really good beer selection on draft. Would go back just for that - but the crab burger was excellent too and my son loved his beef burger. There was more on the menu but without my glasses the print was too small!! Don't let that make you think it's for the aged though... More

The restaurant is located close to DuPont Circle within walking distance of the hotel, where we stayed. We found the service very attentive. There is a dining area open to the street as well. The interior space is cosy, but we did not feel crowded by adjoining tables. The food was delicious, and reasonably priced for a large busy city.... More

Really nice food in a quieter part of town. The menu was full and meal choices varied with something for everyone. We all enjoyed our meals and made a return visit a few days later when we were welcomed back! The staff were extremely attentive and we felt well looked after. Thanks!

First of all the design of the restaurant is very simple. Our server was very polite and tried to impress with 75 different beer, but as we ordered some there all weren't available. The food we got: wasabi Cesar salad, arugula salad and champagne risotto were alright but nothing special. So all in all I wouldn't recommend going there for... More
