This was my first time at the Warner Theatre, which doesn't look like that much from the street, but the interior is really quite striking. You can get food, popcorn and even alcohol to take into the theatre, which is unusual, and added to the relaxed, fun atmosphere.

Had tickets for the LAST row in balcony and still had a great view. There are concessions on all levels, including a lounge in basement. You can bring drinks inside the theater. Mediocre wine was very pricey. Would return for another show.

Warner theater is my favorite theater in D.C., but it's starting to show its age. Three levels of seating- a large main bar on main level and one smaller one above. You can bring your drinks and snacks inside the theater with you.

Went to a concert recently and deliberately bought aisle seats to optimize the view of the stage. It didn't help - the ushers were unable/unwilling to have people stay in their seats, and those standing in the aisle blocked my view most of the concert. Drinks are ridiculously expensive and the seating is starting to show signs of wear. The... More

A cozy but beautiful theater. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house, view-wise. We sat in row K and had a great view of the stage. Be aware that the seats are somewhat tight. The theater could use some updating but overall, a great venue.

Went to the Nutcracker Ballet on Christmas Eve evening. The show itself was really good, enjoyed the artistic talent the children portrayed. The theater was classic, a bit on the old side, a small lobby area, but unique and beautiful all the same. Did not buy anything from concession.

My wife and I visited the Warner for the first time last night. It's a beautiful classic theater, but the legroom in the balcony is in my mind unacceptable. I'm 6'1" so not a giant by any means but my knees were rubbing up against the jagged plastic of the seat in front of me and my legs were cramping... More

We watched the afternoon show. It was a good show. I loved the children's participation. They all were so graceful and cute. The overall experience in ballet terms was average. The props and costumes were very good. I really expected that the music would be live but wasn't and this was a disappointment, especially if you think the ticket price... More

I took my mother, 79 to see the Nutcracker. I splurged for the Grand Suites. We both had a wonderful time and she felt very special. The theater, staff and the National Ballet were wonderful!

I went with a group of travel agents as part of our FAM Trip. The show was great. Concession pricey.
