701 Restaurant

701 is a modern American restaurant with exquisite food framed by an elegant decor. Join us in our bar & lounge for our signature cocktails and small plates or dine with us in our sumptuous dining room. During the spring & summer, our patio is tucked onto the Navy Memorial plaza, with splashing fountains providing a very Parisian feel.

We offer pre-theater menus if you are going to a show, light fare in the lounge, and lunch at the bar specials for those tight on time. Our lunch menu is a favorite among business clientele; dinner is perfect for a special occasion or simply a special night out.

*Please note, our pre-theater menu is not offered on Holidays*

"701 is an excellent spot. We loved our waitress, food was superb. I had Pear salad and scallops. Both were as good as I have had anywhere else.
And the creamcicle dessert was fabulous

"We've visited 701 over the years and each visit is delightful and delectable.
The cuisine is distinctly delicious and the atmosphere sophisticated yet mellow and kool thanks to the smooth piano talent that creates a extraordinary totally sensory experience.

"This was always one of our favorite restaurants and it had slipped off of our list. Well it is back and better than we remember! From the time you are greeted at the door to the time you leave, you feel like you are a guest in someone's home. The servers are attentive without being intrusive, the sommelier was extremely approachable and knowledgeable and listened to our groups preferences. The chef's cuisine is inventive and delicious, the raviolio with chicken livers and beets, the tuna tartar the lobster with butternut squash all wonderful! Our group of 4 enjoyed our dining experience tremendously and will return again. The added bonus is the live jazz very enjoyable and a nice background to the entire dining experience. This is a gem not to be missed!"

"Restaurant 701 used to be a reliable place for a good meal, with good service and interesting dishes. On my last trip, the service was very disappointing and the menu was pared down to a small number of choices and rather confusing. Not a place I would return to."

"We've been here before and loved it, but no more. Tortured food lacking in taste, terrible waitress. We went expecting Jazz at the piano but at 5:30, cocktail time, no jazz. The waitress was new and clueless. We waited 15 minutes with menus but she never inquired we wanted a drink. The wine we ordered with our main arrived when we were almost finished with the plate. My spring lamb was so tough I couldn't cut with a steak knife. Expensive and not worth it."

"A couple of out-of-towners, we first experienced the high quality of the restaurant via a fixed price Thanksgiving dinner; and that very positive experience prompted this recent return. Everything about 701 was exceptional. I had the duck breast, which was tender, moist and very flavorful; my girlfriend had the hake, which was perfect in every way, as well--both were well presented with delicious accompaniments. In addition to furnishing an array of creative flavors, our dishes provided a diversity of textures. Not just enjoyable dining, but interesting dining. The salad before and the dessert after were super, as were the dinner cocktails. Our waiter was attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable; and the manager, Kevin, stopped by for a visit and engaged us in a very enjoyable chat--even recalled us from our visit many months before. Really, a terrific experience in all regards. We will make a point of returning to this restaurant whenever our travels bring us through Washington again."

"An amazing experience! The dishes were creative and incredibly well executed. The tuna tartare with sushi-rice ice cream was brilliant - the ice cream really gave the dish a cool feel that resembled fresh sashimi at a high-end sushi restaurant. The steak with potato foam was awesome - I generally find foam overrated and underwhelming, but Chef Lambert really pulled it off in this dish. And the duck dish was really unique - great Peruvian/Brazilian flavors, rather than your overplayed duck confit or duck with orange dishes. Many thanks to Chef Lambert for the memorable meal, and to the 701 team for their excellent service (including our server, Petra, who took great care of us and had us laughing all night with her wonderful sense of humor). We can't wait to come back."

"An entree dish of cauliflower at about $20 is overpriced. The portion wasn't large enough to fill me up. While delish, not worth the price. Needed an accompaniment I think."

"I took several friends, including a Nobel Laureate from the West Coast to 701. I have been dining there intermittently for 25 years and had a little trepidation about whether the relatively recent change of chefs would prove to be a disappointment. I need not have worried. Everything we tried was beautifully served and marvelously prepared. My friend from the West Coast, who is definitely a gourmand, repeatedly stated that it was the best restaurant meal he had had in many years - better than anything he'd had in LA, SF or Seattle.
The ambience was just right - a pianist in the background, noise level very modest so that conversation was easy. And the service was attentive without being intrusive.
701, I am happy to say, will remain at the top of my list of places to dine in downtown DC.

"In evening clothes after the ballet you don't want fast food but you have limited options. A last minute very late reservation meant we were the last ones in701 but they treated us like family never rushed and actually pampered. The fine piano player played just for us, the food and wine were lovely and service staff charming and attentive. We preferred the old menu but there were still nice choices. Desserts were the best it remains one of the few fully adult restaurants in Penn quarter. A lovely experience."
