First, this is not a themed restaurant. Next the service was terrible even though it was not at peak time. We ordered drinks and food all at the same time since it took so long to even get a server to our table. The drinks...More

Visited here thinking it was a themed restaurant. Apart from a few pictures on the wall it was just like everywhere else. The food was good but a little over charged. Sorry but not a place I would go back to.

After taking 12hrs to get from California to Washington DC, all I wanted was an unfussy meal and a glass of wine and that exactly what The Madhatter provided. The bar staff were friendly and the menu exactly what you expect from a bar catering...More

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.
