It was pricey but it was worth every dime (or dollars)! Drunken noodles as a side - Wok fried Branzino fish - wow - Tuna Tartar appetizer - Everyone had a great meal.

Really liked what we had, crystal chive dumplings/pork belly/spring roll/duck bao/donut, but nothing made me want to go back. We had a great waiter but he was so pressed even he wasn't on top of everything. Just my opinion.

Not quite sure can't get better service here, maybe not enough staff, but that could be fixed. Food good...enjoyed meal ... salmon tasty and well prepared, apps very very nice assortment, all good. Pleasant enough, but way too slow. Seriously, what gives?

Came here for dinner with a few friends on a business trip to DC. I didn't know what to expect from a "Chinese" restaurant run by Wolfgang Puck. Surprisingly, the food was pretty decent, not all authentic but good. We got a few appetizers, some good some mediocre. For the main course, we ordered the Peking duck (2 ways) and... More

This was our second time here with two couples, and so we thought we knew what to expect. Each of us had a cocktail and starters, and then a main course. The food is extremely tasty but also extremely rich. I had the calamari, but also tasted the dumplings and the kale salad as a starter. I had the chicken,... More

Two of us came for Saturday brunch and selected 8 tasting dishes which were perfectly portioned to share. My favorites were the "dan dan" dumplings and duck bun. Enjoy!

This is Wolfgang Puck's restaurant for Asian fusion and it lives up to the Wolfgang Puck name. Unlike a lot of weirder, out-there Asian fusion, this one delivers satisfying, delicious food with good flavors every time I've been there. What do I mean by flavors? Some Asian fusion restaurants pair really different flavors together in the name of experimentation, but... More
