Convivial never disappoints you. Great service and dinner! The gnocchi were very light and tasty, the meringue on the creme brûlée was special and not too sweet at all (which was great!).

Had a very nice visit here. All dishes were delicious. Drinks were great. Atmosphere very fun and light. Excellent service, particularly around helping us choose among the various food options. Would definitely return.

I arrived early, clearly cold and windblown from the 60 mph winter gale. Greeted cheerfully at the door, exchanged a few humorous quips about airborne pedestrians and was escorted to a corner window-side table. ‘Twas a memorable birthday feast. The service was quick and attentive. The meal was first-rate. We devoured:
Burrata
Pickled Rockfish
Spicy lamb sausage
Moulard duck breast
Vanilla creme brulee
Floating Island.
If you are looking for a DC culinary adventure near Chinatown, put Convivial at the top of the list.

We started with southern fried chicken bites which were very tasty. Quiche Lorraine was outstanding but the burrata could have been warmer. The bouillabaisse was good and the rainbow trout superb. The creme brûlée was creamy and good but sugar should have been flamed a little longer. The service was very good and not hurried.

Overworked and inattentive staff. Cocktail was weak (and this was a vacation weekend with lots of good cocktails). The chicken coq au vin appetizer that is so lauded here looked like fast food and was only better due to quality of chicken. Gnocchi had no flavor unless you hit the small amount of apple on the plate. The only high points were the steak tartare which was amazing and the burger which was really wonderful (except impossible to eat without a fork and knife). Had to call the waiter over for anything we wanted but in all fairness, I did not see any other wait staff in the area and it was crowded. Would never go out of my way to come here again.
