Garden Cafe

  • f

I went with a group of 6 to lunch at the "Garden Cafe" on F St. NW. The food was mediocre and the service was abominable. Couldn't get a drink refilled. Has anyone had any luck at this place? It's attractive and nearby -- I wish it had been better.

  1. I ate dinner at the Garden Cafe the first week in November, 2000, and thought it was wonderful. The atmosphere was cozy and warm, the service was exceptional and the Chilean Sea Bass was excellent. It was convenient because I was staying in the State Plaza Hotel, but I will return to eat there even if staying out of the immediate area.

      That's very encouraging. Perhaps dinner is a better bet than lunch. They really didn't seem to have it together when we were there. Maybe I'll give it one more chance on a Kennedy Center night.
