Awesome service and great food made for an awesome Sunday brunch. I was greeted by a friendly staff member upon entering who let me know I could feel free to be seated as I was waiting for a friend before I wanted to be seated. Our waiter was very friendly and gave us a lot of recommendations on the menu. I personally really appreciate when waiters provide recommendations. I loved the omelette and waffles. I also thoroughly enjoyed the fish taco and Mac and cheese. My friend and I almost closed the restaurant down but the staff was super friendly about it. I will definitely return for another great experience.

We really enjoyed the patio for our dinner. The menu has some really creative food and beverages. The Old Fashion menu is quite nice. The host and waiter also went out of their way to work with the bartender to mix up a few non-alcoholic drinks as well that were experimental but still pretty good. Our dinners (the short ribs and the braised duck bolognese) were excellent, thanks to some suggestions from the waiter.

Family dinner while visiting our (carnivore) daughter at college. (Lots of chicken at school!) Great steaks & short ribs. Cool Teddy/Eleanor Roosevelt decor. Super attentive staff. Definitely recommend.

George Forman took extreme measures to make sure we were satisfied after a small drink ingredient issue. Thank you to all the staff who were so excited and helpful. The night was warm and a Lot of people came out to eat. The crew never missed a beat.

I use to love Teddy for lunch and dinner, but it has lost a step.

Drinks at the bar was great and the service there was excellent! I wish we had stuck with the bar instead of being seated.

The dinner service was mediocre-for example the server stood directly behind me at one point to ask how things were going (we were spaced out sitting at a two top). I had no idea he was talking to me let alone what he said. The food timing was all wrong. We ordered four dishes and three of them came out at the same time. The lighting was turned all the way up making it feel like a cafeteria. It was disappointing to see the least.

Food was good but thought it odd there was no bread offered with my breakfast. Service was fine but only saw the server 2 times. Took order and brought me the bill. I was going to ask for additional food items but settled to Just get coffee refill and move on.. Over all not a big deal but a little disappointing given all I had heard about Teddy’s being the spot and I had to go. Sunday brunch was very good food and the environment was fine so still give it a good rating.

Really good food. Only thing I’d say is servers should be trained to know where and who ordered the menu item not just placing it in the middle of table. Especially during these times. Love the food and everything else. You guys are great

Wanted to try a great restaurant in DC and this was our choice. Food was awesome!!! Server was great. Loved the atmosphere and the art and sculptures all over. Salmon was the best I ever had. My wife had the trout and loved it. The bread and butter beet salad and the poached salmon were great.

Server was terrible didn’t come check on us often. Went without water very long. Sat outside in the pitch dark. No lighting or anything. Food was delicious but portion was very small in comparison to price. Probably wouldn’t go again.

Birthday and restaurant week! Food was pretty good. They ran out of vanilla custard and used lime instead in the peach cobbler without informing us. Wasn’t the best combination. Otherwise, everything was great!

Four of us went for a business lunch. Because one of us is immune compromised we asked to sit outside and had the entire patio to ourselves (it was hot and sunny). A crazy surprise storm happened between our appetizers and entrees and the staff rushed out to move all of our stuff under a rented area since we wished to stay outside, and wiped down every table and chair). They were SO NICE and attentive, it was really a great experience and we’ll be coming back often!

This was our second time there and sad to say the food was not as good. My wife had the Salmon and I had the Fried Chicken. Both lacked seasoning and flavor. For appetizers, we had the Brussels and fries. The fries came out Luke warm and the Brussels had a sauce on them that was so bad we returned it and requested it without it.
Sorry to say, for the cost of the meal, we were very disappointed. Won’t be returning.
