About 10 Thomas at the Washington Plaza Hotel
This energetic Thomas Circle restaurant serves innovative American cuisine, with Italian influences from our Chef Luca De Marchis. Because we use locally grown ingredients, our menu changes frequently, keeping the choices fresh and seasonal. The ambience is inviting at any time of day; watch the "early birds" at Thomas Circle in the morning, sunbathers taking a dip in our pool after lunch, or a beautiful sunset at the end of the day. Sip a glass of champagne or a cocktail by candlelight on our Poolside Terrace and make a wish while watching the stars over Washington, D.C.

10 Thomas at the Washington Plaza Hotel Ratings and Reviews
We love this hotel for special Sunday Buffet Brunches--there are so few buffet brunches around, and there selections are great, and the atmosphere is chic, upscale but also comfortable and cozy, and the service is impeccable. We requested a window seat and they accommodated very nicely.
We have done the Easter Sunday Buffet Brunch, several Thanksgiving buffet dinners, and a New year's Eve party there.
We were there for Easter brunch. First and foremost, our waitress was no were to be found! We had to ask for her every time we needed something.
The selection of food was pretty basic and not impressive for $43 a person. I had 2 children and they said they looked bigger than a child and I paid the full price while they only ate eggs and waffles.
Not impressed at all..
Everything was okay, but nothing special. I ate here for Easter brunch. The service was very good, but the food itself was mediocre. The prime rib was overcooked, the sausage gravy was strange - I've never seen it done as a brown gravy before, but maybe some people would like it. The biscuits were tough, the bagels were doughy. The fried chicken was luke warm and not particularly tasty.
It's just a breakfast buffet with nothing special going on.
We attended the Easter Brunch Service and it was absolutely amazing! The reservation was easy to make, we arrived early and the staff was nothing but accommodating! There was tables and tables of beautiful food displays that tasted amazing! I didn't want the day to end. Breakfast cocktails were flowing and our server was so nice and pleasant! best part-ZERO Clean up for us. Worth the price for an easy holiday brunch for sure-it's an amazing value!!
I would not recommend eating here. The food was fine for a hotel restaurant, but the buffet looked like only half was put out. The atmosphere was bad. Very dated my chair was a wicker seat that had a big hole in the back and the walls were nicked and looked dingy. Waitress was nice and polite.
Went to 10 Thomas at the Washington Plaza for brunch on New Years Day. Brunch was included in the cost of the room (I hope, we will see when I get my credit card bill). Overall it was a decent meal with some good options. The food was good and the service was adequate. We were one of the first to be seated for brunch and got to the omelette station quickly before the line grew relatively long. I am not sure I would have waited too long for the omelette; nothing fancy. The deserts were really good.
We spent Thanksgiving at the "restaurant". The food was good and service very good. I did not realize it was going to be held in a banquet hall setting. I thought it would be a bit cozier, in an actual restaurant. We were all quite full with the meal. Dishes were simple and traditional. No dishes to clean up, yeah!
It has a convenient location downtown with street parking if you're patient. Otherwise, they validate for hotel parking. We stayed a while and paid $8. There is a wide variety of food, including an omelet station, and limitless drinks, which is rare for a Sunday brunch. For $32.50, we had all that we could eat and drink. For the value and location, we were stunned that it wasn't busier. Everything was neat and everyone was professional. The salads and fruit were fresh and the wait staff was attentive, but not overbearing, and they didn't rush us out either. I highly recommend it for entertaining out of town guests or for an outing with friends and family. The prices are lower for children, and there was plenty of food for them as well, meaning that everything wasn't so fancy that a child wouldn't want to eat it. We will definitely go there again.
Excellent Brunch! Come in at 11am and sit by the pool for 4 hours! Enjoy the food, the drink, and the surroundings!
The Lunch/Dinner menu is limited, but each item is done very well! The Breakfast is excellent whether you al'a carte it or go for the buffet! Never had a bad meal here....
I previously visited and enjoyed the brunch .This time the food selection was not as plentiful and half of the food I did try was cold or old. I had to ask for several dishes to be warmed up. The food was obviously not being cooked, replinished, or replaced on a consistent basis . I was very disappointed.
Excellent food from a limited menu, but what they serve, they do well. The bartenders are great, the servers are friendly and dont mind a quick conversation, and the Brunch is fantastic!
Get there at 11am, sit and have the breakfast side, sit outside by the pool, continue to feast on the lunch side while sipping unlimited Bloody's or Mamossa's. Cant beat that....!
During a girlfriends getaway weekend we dined at No. 10 Thomas for Sunday brunch. This isn't the trendiest place in town and the dining area is more nursing home than hot spot, but we were able to sit outside by the pool area. This was a great value: endless buffet options and bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary's. The buffet featured salmon, shrimp and grits, ribs, waffles, roast beef, salads, fruit, creme brûlée and tiramisu. Because the restaurant wasn't crowded, we felt free to relax and take our time. The service was wonderful.
Where I live in the 14th Street NW area, good restaurants abound. Trouble is, they are terribly noisy. This restaurant in the Washington Plaza Hotel provides the perfect answer to: "Where can I go when I want to talk with my meal partners?" This is a lovely dining room that looks over the hotel's swimming pools and lots of trees and other flora - and it's peacefully quiet!! The menu is limited but quite good, the drinks are fine and the staff is accommodating.
This is the 2nd year in a row we've chosen to go to 10 Thomas for Easter Brunch. As a native Washingtonian I can attest to having gone to many hotel brunches but I believe 10 Thomas is not only is a superior value but also has a superior food selection along with wonderful service.
