I visited this establishment on a couple of occasions in May and was completely underwhelmed by the level of service and the quality of the food and the price. Five dollars for a glass of orange juice breakfast seems to me to be a tad excessive. I ate one evening and the food was lukewarm. The 2nd course arrived 2... More

Awesome food. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in D.C. and near DuPont Circle. Parking can be challenging, but its worth driving into the area and taking a chance on finding a parking space.

The food was great, from the bread, to the soup, to the delicious rack of lamb. The staff very friendly and competent. In particular, Jackson, Katrine, Alexis, and Hammou were just great serving us as royalty!

Absolutely wonderful for breakfast! My GF and I stopped by here one morning for a very late meal and the food was very tasty. Additionally the waitress and other staff were very welcoming, seated us promptly and were attentive to our needs the whole time.

When we arrived we had a long walk exploring and then finally chose the restaurant to dine at - however when we arrived it had a 2hr wait so had to go back to the drawing board. We then found cafe DuPont and we were not disappointed! The restaurant was clean and welcoming and staff were friendly. The food was... More

The food was very good. The service was not up to par. It wasn't very busy the evening we were there and the server was running around like a chicken with his head cut off. Very nice location.

The restaurant is nicely appointed, but not elegant. Nevertheless I am giving an excellent rating because of the excellent tasting food and good value. We had an unusual and filling beet salad, along with excellent lamb chops and bass. We were served by a Filipino trainee (sorry I've forgotten her name) who took fantastic care of us. Will probably return.

For a name like Cafe DuPont, I expected something more inexpensive and casual. This is actually fine dining. I ordered a crab cake appetizer that was small, covered in sauce, and centered on a very big plate. I wanted something light, but this was a lot lighter than I expected. It was $14. Still hungry, I ordered a $9 bowl... More
