Made a reservation for 4 people for brunch and tried to add another person prior to arriving at the restaurant, then showed up with 5 and the hostess was unwilling to seat us. The staff withheld information about how long the wait would be for 5 people and claimed they couldn't simply add another chair to a 4-top. After waiting... More

We went here for brunch on Sunday. The food was really good and had a lot of powerful flavors. The service was a little slow but all and all a great place to eat.

Visited with Friends while in DC. Everything I tried was very good. I was partial to the cornbread and gnocchi. Vast selection of beverages. Would visit again!

Located in the Alexandrian Hotel, this dining spot provides adequate meals. Nothing special, but acceptable food and service.

We live in Old Town, so I am reluctant to disparage a local establishment. But the service at Easter brunch was perhaps the worst I have experienced. Two of us arrived on time for our 10:30am reservation and we were seated outside in the courtyard. We sat for 15 minutes without menus until a manager noticed that we were unattended... More

I stayed at the adjacent hotel and decided to give this place a try the first night I was in town. Very nice ambiance. The Waldorf salad was very tasty, but when the entree was served I couldn't control the disappointment. Fake mashed potatoes! Instant flavorless potatoes is not something I was expecting and ruined the whole meal.

Beautiful Restaurant. Great host and waiter. My problem was with the kitchen staff. If you don't want me to watch them don't seat me in front of the open area kitchen. The apitizer prep/ souse chef, kept running his hand through his hair and then going back to fixing food. The waitress kept fixing her pony tail then serving food.... More

I stayed at the Hotel Monaco in November 2016 and shared a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family. I was a little concerned when the Monaco was sold to Marriott in late 2016, but no worries, Jackson 20 is still fabulous. I had drinks one night and breakfast the following day, the place is busy and still provides a... More
