Was in D.C. For the cherry blossom festival with some friends and we ventured into China town to find a place to eat and we were very happy with our find. Loved the atmosphere and the staff was super friendly. The place was pretty busy since there was a game that night and even with the place being busy we... More

The University of Minnesota had its Alumni Tailgate here for the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament. We had kielbasa and beer and our friends had burgers. They took good care of our group and the Alumni, in general. The waitress was very nice and helpful. I would return to RFD when I'm back in DC.

Well we took a small group here all on business in DC. Disappointed. Every meal was okay but not worth the price and the beer selection was great in the main bar/restaurant but lacking in the "back bar". Service was barely acceptable.

A group of us stopped in the RFD after the Caps game on Friday night and got an outside table to take advantage of the warm weather. Unfortunately, they allow smoking outside in bars in DC and we had cigar smokers sitting behind us....luckily, they left shortly after we were seated. Great and very extensive beer selection! Our server was... More

Was drawn into this restaurant because the patio was open. However as amazing as the Patio was the drinks and food were so so. They had a great happy hour, so I ordered a bloody and he hubby ordered a special beer. Upon getting our drinks the Bloody Mary was full of black pepper... like I spit into my napkin... More

Being allergic to wheat, barley, malt, and gluten I was very pleased my husband found R.F.D. because out of all the places we had drinks in DC they were the only ones with gluten free beer options! I had the 7th street nachos with chicken as my meal and was satisfied with the size and being full after I was... More

Great service and atmosphere. We really love NFL Red Zone. The lemon pepper wings were the best we've ever had! The election of beers was endless.

This place has a fantastic Beer list. The food is a little mediocre, and I found the atmosphere to be a bit sterile, but all in all, not a bad place.
