Breakfast at Tabard Inn was in our list of must do's in Washington D. C. Fortunately, it was literally a few steps from the Kimpton Hotel we stayed in and we were able to go first hour in the morning without a reservation. It did not disappoint. We started with freshly baked donuts which set the bar high for the... More

We ate breakfast here while staying at the Inn. The food was freshly prepared and well-presented. The breakfast sandwich was delish!

Of course if you are local, you know that. To an out of towner, construction on the block, row of buildings emerging from neglect (finally) might suggest caution, but it's a friendly little restaurant/inn that's been doing the dance long enough to know all the steps. Easter dinner for 3 - wonderful little meal. App choice for me was blood... More

Have visited D.C. many times but have never been to the Tabard Inn. It won't be our last time. The Sunday brunch was delicious. They make all their own bakery products, all fantastic. Look forward to returning for dinner on another visit.

Perhaps the best restaurant in DC. Wonderful tables with a cozy yet very classy atmosphere. The food is outstanding, whether seafood or meat. Authentic cooking with best produce, elegantly prepared and finished. Varied and superbly chosen selection of wines. Very friendly and competent staff. We can only recommend this wonderful institution.

One of the classic DC places. Located within an in-city inn. The place serves great souther comfort food in an old comfortable southern dc setting. Not flashy or hip but comfortable for sure.

Interesting place to eat with several rooms each of which had a great feel. Service was quick and friendly. Food was good but wouldn't call it over the top good

The food was delicious and good to look at but the best thing was the friendly,accommodating staff. We stayed at the hotel and I must say that the rooms reminded me of visiting my grandparents, but again the staff was outstanding. Yes we would go back.

This restaurant is located in the Tabard Inn, the longest continuing running hotel in Washington, D.C. (since 1922, which by European standards is quite young!). Anyway, this is a very nice restaurant, very busy and the food served is of excellent quality. I had the filet mignon and it was made to perfection. I can strongly recommend this restaurant to...
