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
The food was excellent but I was surprised when we were led into a conference room vice the restaurant. On my previous brunch visit we sat in the restaurant proper so the ambiance was much better. The noise level was a little loud because of all the people and the wait staff was eager to please although the coffee person wasn't as energetic as the water person. Overall it was a great experience and I would go back but probably not on Mother's day because I'd prefer to sit in the restaurant.
We came here for their Mother's Day brunch. I assumed it would be a buffet at a restaurant. Instead it was a buffet in one of the meeting spaces at the hotel. I felt like I was eating a meal at a conference I was attending, not having a Mother's Day brunch. It was at least ten minutes before we could flag down a waitress to take our drink order. The food was mediocre, the Bloody Mary was disappointing and the service was subpar. To top it off, 10 Thomas reported to OpenTable that we missed our reservation when we were in fact 15 minutes early. The actual restaurant may be good, but I'll never know because I won't go back.
My husband took me there for Mother's Day 2 years ago and it fantastic. There were so many tables outside, an enormous amount of food options, service was outstanding. He took us there with my mom last week and we were greatly disappointed. Obviously, not that many reservations so things were scaled down,, however, the food options were slim, the service was awful. We sat outside and had to go in to get someone to come out to assist us.
Will never go there again
I was disappointed by this place. It wasn't a restaurant so much as a caterer, and I was not happy that this ended up being my wife's mother's day brunch. We were seated at the table closest to the kitchen, in spite of numerous other tables being open. The food selection was good, but it was mass produced, event catering food. Not what I expected. Everything was room temperature. Dessert was good, good selection and taste.
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....
