Lobster Meat in our exclusive Creamy Cardinale Lobster Sauce over Linguini Pasta ~ Magnificent and ours Exclusively Since 1983! Favorite of 2 Past US Presidents!
Made reservations. We were greeted and seated immediately. Decor was full-on Holloween themed - kind of odd for mid-September. Table was somewhat in a heavily travelled aisle. We asked for assistance in selecting an Italian wine. We are knowledgeable about California wines, and tried to express our tastes accordingly. Wine recommendation was not at all “big and bold” as described. But we drank it. Salad was excellent. We shared - plenty. Entrees were also excellent and more than we could eat. Aperitif was perfect. All in all a good experience.
An excellent and fun restaurant to celebrate a birthday. Our daughter loved the Halloween decorations, and we had excellent service.
Outstanding all around
As always, the food and drinks were impeccable. The pasta is just amazing. There were three of us, and all three meals were exceptional! I will always make sure any DC trip includes a meal at Filomena Ristorante.
Our first visit to Filomena & we loved it all. Everything we had was devious & the service was outstanding. Highly recommend. The tres leches was the best I’ve ever had!
We had an excellent dinner for my husband’s birthday! The food was delicious and service was excellent.
Service was Outstanding!
Food was incredible!!!!!!
Loved the Halloween decorations
Best dinner I’ve ever had!
Food & service were exceptional!! Seasonal decor was amazing!!
christiana(i’m not sure if i spelled that right) was our server and she was amazing !! she answered all our questions and was even able to accommodate our special request! at the end of dinner she was telling us about how is italian tradition to have the sambuca at the end! the whole place was amazing and if i’m in the area i will DEFINITELY be eating here again!!
Fun place, great ambiance. Crazy portions of food, but that does explain the prices. 35/40 dollars for a pasta dish, definitely to share with at least two people.
Such a great experience! The food was superb and the service excellent. We will definitely go back next time we are in DC. The portion sizes are gigantic so be prepared to get a take out box.
I was amazed at the quality of the food. Best gnocchi i have ever tasted including in Italy. The atmosphere was hysterical with early Halloween decorations. But again - just go for the food. Prepare yourself for large properties.
Excellent experience (per usual) with the best food and service! Shout out to Nicola for being awesome as always!!!
The food was really good and portion sizes are large. The service was excellent. The restaurant was seasonally decorated which was kind of cool, though unexpected. Tables are close in traditional Italian fashion. Noise level is kind of high and, due to the close tables, having a private conversation can be difficult. Overall a very enjoyable experience and I will return.
Excellent food with excellent service. The wait staff went that extra step in every respect.
Real deal Italian food! Portions are huge, always enough to take home for another meal. Everything from the fresh bread to dessert is delicious. Service is always good, waitstaff very knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. Interior always decorated for holidays. On our visit was heavily decorated for Halloween, very nice job. We plan on going back for Christmas decorations
All good as always
Service was wonderful and the food is amazing. The Halloween decorations were a little much for my taste but other than that it was a fabulous experience. We would definitely make this a first stop on our next DC visit.
Excellent service. The food was very good. The
Great food and outstanding decorations
A wonderful meal and great service. Everything was great.
My husbands last day as an active duty marine was today.
We loved Filomena! The food and service were outstanding. The stuffed mushrooms, lasagna, and strawberry cheesecake were delicious. They had just decorated for Halloween so the atmosphere was very festive. We will definitely return on our next visit to DC!
food and service were outstanding great for that special dinner.
It was wonderful as it always is
Overrated and overpriced. Very very crowdy and noisy. Probably get COVID. The decoration is tedious. Halloween theme in early September, seriously? 40 dollars for a plate of not-italian-at-all pasta. Not recommended at all.
Classic old school upscale Italian restaurant with exceedingly large portions. The focaccia bread was the best I’ve ever eaten, the Caesar salad was very good, as was the Veal Saltimbocca with rigatoni with vodka sauce. My wife loved here Misto de Mare with gluten-free pasta. No room for dessert.
Sea Bass and lobster risotto were fantastic. First time dining at Filomena’s, and we will be back! Service was excellent, very accommodating. Thank you!
Our server romano was beyond helpful
Authentic and totally amazing!
Filomena's is a landmark, located in a very historic building and everyone says you must go.. it was charming, though Halloween decorations up in early September seemed too much) The service was excellent, the drinks and appetizers were very delicious. The entrees were so overpriced. A bowl of linguine with a few clams was $35! Desserts also very expensive.. Also the food came out soooo quick which makes me think it was all prepared ahead of time.. for the $$ it just didn't seem fresh. We enjoyed our food, it was good, but this is, in my opinion a 1 time visit.
Awesome food. Fast serving. Falvors on point. Good amount of food.
We had a wonderful dining experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and the meal was delicious! One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time.
Fun and bustling authentic Italian. Excellent service and food. It’s been years since visiting but we won’t wait so long anymore……it’s really a unique experience.
What a great place to come for a special occasion or upon visiting DC. HUGE portions and delicious homemade food. At the end of the meal, they give you a little taste of sambucca or amoretto just as a special treat. It was a little noisy but the food is worth it!
Filomena is a charming restaurant with fun decorations, excellent service and delicious food.
Over all the years eating at your establishment li general everything but the food was off . Instead of everything being 100% you were at 90%. Thanks Michael
Still the best Italian food in DC and the service matches. Always a delight to enjoy.
Loved everything about it! Great service, cool ambiance and delicious food! The serving sizes are generous…even my husband was stuffed and had leftovers. We liked everything we ordered and can’t wait to go back soon! Definitely recommend. If you’re sensitive to social distancing, go early before it gets crowded (after 6:30). Filomena’s is a MUST!
