Ordered the mad hatter rum punch bowl and an appetizer. Ordered nachos and a hamburger specifically said no cheese. I mentioned to the brand new waitress (first day) who is Italian and doesn't like cheese, donut was over emphasized with no cheese. Sooo.... she didn't come back for ten mins, we asked for a burger with no cheese, she apologized... More

When I went it was decorated for the holidays and it was magical. The menu didn't seem special originally, but the food was actually delicious. They also have expensive their own house cinnamon tea. Service was good

Housed in an old building the food is ok but the facilities are old and lacking. The bar was well stocked but several people complained that the waiter was mixing the drinks up when brought to the table. Probably won't visit again.

I haven't been here during the day, but during the night time this place it's great. For dancing and drinking this place it got what you need. Just a tiny bit overcrowded in the dance floor, but other than that great place and great atmosphere. One of the best bar in the DC area. No cover charge, so go and... More

Favorite place to just dance on Friday and Saturday nights !! You don't have to wait in line to get in and the music is modern pop club music. Super fun !

Nice outdoor area. Very appealing as you walk by. But, too many smokers made it hard for me to breath fresh air. I did not see ash trays on the tables, but I guess smoking is permitted. I could not deal with the smoke. So I left. Disappointing.

Not sure where to start with this one. The Madhatter is set up as a bar / restaurant with a sign outside saying enter on one side to the restaurant and one side to the bar. We tried this - pointed back to the bar (which is fine) and entered in. First thing we were met by was an aggressive... More

Had dinner with friends here close to Christmas. The decor is interesting with a crazy Alice in Wonderland feel, and even an upside down room. The menu had typical american fare, a few interesting choices. The wait staff was polite, but service was a bit slow, probably because of the holidays. The food was good, I was impressed by the...

We were looking for a bar they had TV so could watch games on Thanksgiving day and fortunately they were open. Most places we normally go to were not. Greeted at door and immediately the gentleman placed us near tv and proceeded to place nice linen tablecloth down but we suggested he save it as were were having drinks. Drinks... More

My coworkers and I happened to be in the area two of us from San Antonio and one from Chicago, we read the review and thought why not! I am not in the business of giving bad reviews to give bad reviews, unfortunately this one requires it. Sadly we did not get the opportunity to experience what so many others... More
