About Beacon Bar and Grill
Washington, DC 20036
Designer Walter Gagliano's second visioning of BBG introduced a fresh, romantic feel to BBG. Vermeer’s portrait of “Girl with a Pearl Earring” was the muse in creating a new look. “Our original goal was to bring the space to a cleaner more contemporary vibe. When we discovered the over scaled Vermeer print, originally created by Philipe Stark, our fondness for bold romanticism found expression and led our fabric and lighting choices in a different direction" stated Gagliano.
Chef Edgar Melendez introduces a menu that balances his own personal flair and beliefs with the wants and needs of our guests. Clean lines, bright flavors, and unique combinations best describe his culinary style. Menu items are influenced by the seasons in conjunction with local farmers and purveyors. Just like our clientele, our cuisine represents a fusion between regional and global influences. Chef Melendez's goal is to give a truly pleasant and graceful dining experience in a casual, elegant setting.

Our waiter, John, was amazing. He made sure our mimosas were truly bottomless and our water glasses were full. The Sunday brunch is buffet style and offers a variety of well prepared foods. We had a group of 8 and the table seated us all comfortably. The ambiance was great the music was lively. Overall we had a great time.

We took my mom for her bday and decided to do the brunch. Only thing I was a bit annoyed with was I understand they have to card everyone with for alcohol, but my grandmother did not have ID and she clearly looks over the age of 50 and they wouldn't serve her alcohol. I can understand me, but a senior citizen...really?! The food was good, and my family enjoyed it and said they would definitely come back.

Oh my goodeness! I love the Beacon! I was searching all around for unlimited Mimosa brunch places in DC and decided to try this one and I'm glad I gave it a chance. The waitresses were on point, esp when it came to refilling our glasses. The food was even better they had a wide variety of things. Def will be going back :)

Tom was a great server! We never had wait for a refill on our mimosas, coffee, etc. I happened to be with a particularly picky crowd and Tom handled us like a consummate profession. The food was great and service was excellent. Only one complaint is that the waiting area can be a bit hectic during the Sunday morning brunch rush. But overall that didn't make my experience any less enjoyable. I give it a 5 out of 5.

I've been to Beacon many times and have always enjoyed it so I'm going to give them a pass on the last visit. I felt the food was not up to par. I had the quinoa salad and the portion was very small. I had to order salmon at the last minute so I would have enough to eat. I've had this salad before and it's been terrific, so maybe just an off day. Service is always good here and its modern and clean. I'll definitely come here again.

Took my friends to the Beacon Bar and Grill for Sunday brunch. Despite the 45 minutes it took to find parking, the food/service was on par as usual. Our server was attentive, the host was accommodating and the buffet attendants friendly. The vibe was also comfortable due to the noise level being muted; a plus when some places have you yelling at your company. Great place for friends or a more intimate date.

I've been to Beacon Bar on a Sunday for brunch which was amazing but this time we went on a Saturday which was best for my sister (birthday) and cousin. I will never go again on a Saturday that's for sure...totally disappointed in the food and services.

We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner. The menu choices were excellent and well prepared. With endless mimosas and dessert included it was a terrific alternative to cooking. Our server was very friendly and professional and all aspects of the service were great 👍🏽

I went for Thanksgiving Day dinner. I had the pomegranate salad, which was ok. I then had the turkey entree, which came with stuffing and brussel sprouts. The turkey didn't seem fresh and it was salty. I then had the pumpkin pie for dessert and that was ok. I did like the unlimited champagne and mimosas. Our waiter Richard was friendly and helpful. ... From the staff who bus the tables, i wish more attention was made to detail such as making sure we had utensils for different dishes, and when we needed more water or champagne. I think it may be a nice place for a happy hour.

We had Thanksgiving dinner at the Beacon Grill. It looked beautiful on-line, but is even more fantastic being there. The service and food was absolutely fantastic. I did not want to leave, but we needed to because it was Thanksgiving, after all, and people needed to be seated!!
It was the best Thanksgiving. I cannot wait to come back!

This is a must for any DC brunchers! Beacon House Bar and Grill never disappoints for Sunday Brunch. The variety is vast, food is delicious, and servers are always attentive (keep the mimosas topped off!). Definitely need a reservation to enjoy your time here and your party needs to be on time!
Highly recommended and will be back again (and again!).

Highly disappointed. This was my first Saturday brunch at Beacon and I won't return. The server was rude and impatient. They shoved my party of into a booth with a stray chair despite the restaurant being empty. Food was mediocre at best. Avoid.

Hosted - 5 friends for dinner and the food, service and attention were excellent - I visit this restaurant often and always enjoy my visits. They told me it was a new menu and the items I tried were truly excellent. Thanks for making our visit such fun!!!

I have been here with groups several time. The food is good and a nice ambience. They have unlimited mimosas and bloody mary's at no additional charge. The food changes from time to time but they retain the basics. Great place to meet friends and catch up.

Took a friend visiting from out of town to the Beacon for brunch on Saturday. She enjoyed the food and since it was a rainy Saturday, the place was nice and quiet. Enjoyed the food as the usual and the unlimited mimosas. Would come again.

The reservation was made two weeks in advance for a Birthday celebration. When we arrived, no one seemed to know anything about our reservation. We were finally seated although servers passed us several times and ignored us. Then we had to wait another 15 minutes to receive menus. We ordered martinis that came in water glasses. We had to make several requests for bread before it arrived. The only positive experience was the food, which was quite good. The waiter never came back to check on us or to see if our food was okay. It was a disappointing experience and I expected much better.

I am always satisfied with the high level of exceptional service that the Beacon Bar & Grill offers. It is definitely my number place to go when i want to invite business acquaintance, family and friends for a great get together.

Made my reservation bringing my cousins from NC who heard all the great things about the brunch. Called ahead, my ENTIRE party was in the building and because two of them were in the bathroom. The manager felt it necessary to come tell ask me 2 didn't I say the party was here. It was not a good moment.
