Very decent spot for a casual lunch or dinner. Flavors were quite authentic and my salmon was prepared very well. They have a fried Hummus appetizer there with sausage and mozzarella that’s really delish and FILLING. The service was quite good! Very attentive and friendly staff. More

Afternoon Tea | Downtown, District of Columbia

We have been to Benjamin Bar several times for afternoon tea and have been more than pleased with our visit. This time everything was up to par and expectation except the service. Our waiter was pleasant enough and initially attentive, pouring our tea, keeping the tea cups and water refilled but after the food was served he seemed to have forgotten us. We always enjoy two glasses of Trumps Sparkling wine and when the first glass was nearing empty he was no where to be found to offer a second for quite a bit of time. Then again we waited nearly an hour to get our check and then more time for him to complete the transaction. We will return with the hopes of improved service as we do thoroughly enjoy the afternoon tea. There was an event in the ballroom however that should not have taken away from regular service in the other areas. More
