Fourth Estate Restaurant at the National Press Club

Dine at the Fourth Estate restaurant at the National Press Club and you'll enjoy great food in a setting rich with history. It is the perfect place for a business lunch, interview or dinner with friends and colleagues.

While the venue is historic, the food is rooted in the here and now. Chef Delbert works with organic and small farmers in the Mid-Atlantic region, giving her access to the freshest, most flavorful meats and produce.

"The National Press Club restaurant was excellent in all respects: food, service, atmosphere, friendly staff, and historic nature of the facility. The staff even gave us a history of its existence and the frequency of notable events. It is a must see/be place in D.C."

"This was our third time at the Fourth Estate and we will be back. We have gone twice on a travelzoo voucher which is an exemplary savings and value. The ambiance, food, service and serene atmosphere are all incredible. The pictures in the hall way bring back many memories. We recommend this restaurant very highly."

"We'd always heard of the National Press Club but had no idea that they had a restaurant opened to the public. Went on a Travelzoo gift. Close to the Metro. Near the Mall and sights there. So much fun to look at all the photographs of well known journalists. A nice history lesson. Dining room is quiet, not large. Staff were all very welcoming and willing to talk about the setting. Food was good fare. Drinks quite satisfactory. All in all, it was a delightful dining experience. Hope to go back."

"The location of the Fourth Estate Restaurant is historical, and its past events are displayed for all to enjoy. Following our meal, we had the special privilege of being shown throughout the National Press Club which is a fascinating venue for weddings and other special occasions as well as for those who enjoy membership or just go to enjoy dinner. The service was great, welcoming and attentive, the food was very, very good. The only problem we had was actually finding interior directions from the lower building lobby to the restaurant. We were surprised to learn that the restaurant serves brunch on Saturdays."

"Wonderful food and service. A very warm, professional staff. The overall ambiance is a bit dated, like an old fashioned hotel, but it's nice to be able to hear your companions without shouting. High energy it's not, but the food and service is stellar."

"Delivers solid, quality and plentiful food. Located in the National Press Club, so linger on your way out. The walls are covered in history."

"Very nice change from the DC busy scene. Very small restaurant. Excellent service. Outstanding food. We had the crab cakes.... Surprised that there were two large tables with families with small children, and this was a Saturday evening."

"Very well hidden restaurant. Atmosphere is nice, quite historic. The food is nothing great given the prices, but desserts (poached pear in sangria and pineapple upside down brownie) were very, very good. Servers are very attentive. It is a rather sophisticated place and atmosphere, very good for business meetings or mature dating."

"Whenever I've had the opportunity to eat here I am never disappointed. The service, food and atmosphere is just wonderful. Kudos to staff and the chef who came out on a prior visit to see how our dining experience and food were. I will definitely eat here often."

"My wife and I went for a quiet dinner and really enjoyed our experience. There were only a few other tables there by the time we arrived at 8:15 so we were able to converse easily. The service was very good. And the food was fantastic. Crab cakes for my wife and the filet for me. We also enjoyed our appetizer, desert and their house Cabernet paired well with my filet. We will definitely return here again."
