Went there for a quick meal but the server seemed to always be busy with other tables. So the food came to us late and not spaced very well. The food was passable, but the service could have been better.

We are visiting DC and after a long day of walking and site seeing we were looking for a fun, yummy dinner. M Street Bar and Grill was pretty empty. The service was great and friendly and all 3 of us loved our dishes. We would definitely eat here again.

Horrible experience

Dined on March 20, 2016

Poor customer service, and they don't honor what they have published on their very own website. They were going to add 20% automatic gratuity to my party, however their website says 18%. Their website says a la carte menu options are available during their Sunday brunch, however they tried to make my group automatically order the brunch option only. I will never go back their again.

A hidden gem in a small DC hotel

vip
Dined on March 17, 2016

We went here to a restaurant at the St. George hotel. We though it was a different restaurant with a similar name and were very pleasantly surprised. You won't find any big write ups for this place, but it is certainly worth a visit if you are near 20th and M Streets. Our waiter was from Bangledesh, and he could not have been more accommodating. We were very happy with the experience.

Excellent DC Brunch

Dined on March 12, 2016

I am very impressed with M Street Bar and Grill. We went for the bottomless mimosa brunch for $30/a head and were truly impressed with the innovative menu and strong drinks. Don't think that this place is just about the boozy drinks, the food really does take center stage! I was thoroughly impressed and will be back soon! Thank you for a great meal with exemplary service!

Great brunch experience

Dined on February 28, 2016

A group of my friends and I went to M Street Bar for brunch and it was a great experience! Our food was great, the mimosas were amazing and it wasn't too crowded! Our service could have been a little better, we would have to ask for a refill on the mimosa, but outside of that, it was really good. I would recommend this restaurant for brunch for sure.

Dined on January 17, 2016

I went here for my 27th birthday this past Sunday and had reservations for 8 people at 1pm. It was snowing, so many of my guests were running late and weren't going to make it. I was worried the restaurant wouldn't seat those of us that were there because more than half of my party wasn't there. Luckily, the restaurant was very accommodating and still seated us and as my friends showed up, they gave them menus. That was great! The food came out of the kitchen relatively quick. It was good and they give a lot of food! The bottomless mimosas were excellent! I was expecting to hear a jazz band/music as it is advertised, but instead there was an acoustic guitar player who only played a few songs and then left. That was a little disappointing because I was looking forward to hearing live jazz music. But nevertheless, I enjoyed my birthday brunch at this restaurant and the ambiance/decor. Will definitely go again! (Tip: If you have a large party, they will only split the check 3 ways, so be sure to notify your party in advance!)

Great spot! Loved the vibe - very chic and it was nice to sit upstairs by the window. The service was good. I enjoyed the bottomless mimosas. The price was great. The chicken and waffle was ok - I've had better but it wasn't bad at all. I'd definitely go back and try another dish. Nonetheless, everything overall was wonderful so the food wasn't a big deal. This will be one of my regular brunch spots going forward.

The crab cake was good not a true Maryland style crab cake I thought the bell peppers was a weird spin on the crab cake. If you're not use to traditional crab cakes than this crab cake is just right. (I did love the jumbo lump good amount of crab meat little filler)

My husband and I enjoyed our two entrées. I had a house special "shrimp in white wine over white rice and spinach". My husband had Chicken Marsala. Both meals were very flavorful and nicely presented. I do agree with previous reviewers who said that menu is extremely limited. Although we enjoyed our meals, we will not return on our next visit to DC.

It was a great place. I sat upstairs and noticed a lot of my peers having celebrations. Brunch list was awesome so much to choose from, the food was delicious and made in good time. Finally the mimosas kept coming for the 3 course brunch. I loved the dessert cupcakes as a desset like that is hard to come by. Great place and service.

We had a business lunch that took 2 hours. We ate very slow and chatted the whole time and our server, Rosa, was very attentive for our any need, and yet barely interrupting our conversations. She let us be unless we needed her. Wonderful spot to meet in the city for lunch.

Underthrilling but Served Its Purpose

Dined on April 12, 2015

I chose M Street Bar & Grill at the recommendation of multiple friends. Now, my mistake was not taking those recommendations for what they were. Many, as college kids often do, were regarding the bottomless mimosas - which were served continuously and generously. What the recommendations did not include was the service, or the food. The service was good - not terribly bad, yet not terribly good either. And the food lacked a wow factor that would tie the whole experience together. My group of six friends and myself went for brunch at my recommendation and ordered the three course special. The salads were fresh and crisp. The entrees were underwhelming - I ordered the Spanish Breakfast Platter and was really only surprised by their fried plantains. And dessert was neither rich nor decadent - as one would hope. I will say that the jazz pianist made the atmosphere was a beautiful addition to the ambiance.

Nice Restaurant

Dined on April 4, 2015

Ambiance was great, very nice restaurant for couple or even large parties. The presentation of the food was GREAT!! Everyone in our party enjoyed their food, it wasn't the "best I ever had" but it was pretty good and wasn't too expensive. In terms of the location there is little to no parking mostly all street parking but they are doing a lot of construction in the area which can make parking more difficult. If you attend this restaurant give yourself "parking time". We had a reservation for 5 and our group didn't completly arrive until 5:30 due to traffic and parking and the restaurant was very understanding and still accommodated my group with no problems.

As soon as I walked in, I was greeted with a smile. Our waiter was very attentive and kept our coffee refilled. I ordered the breakfast tacos which were a little bland and could have used more pico and guacamole. My husbands chicken an waffles was amazing, I wish I would have ordered that! Overall it was a great experience and I would not hesitate to visit 21m again for brunch!
