We love coming to Filomena every year around the holidays. The decor, ambiance, quality service, and delicious food always make it such a lovely experience! The gnocchi is my favorite dish with the hearty meat sauce - - delicious!

The service and food were very good. I was disappointed in our seating. The restaurant is almost empty for lunch at 3:00, yet we were seated next to the salad bar with a view of all the waiter activity. The salad bar was even dissembled while we had our lunch. I wish that I rejected the seating. Next week, I will be coming again. This time I hope the seating is much better.

I went to celebrate my wife's birthday. Even after being told of the occasion twice, they were callous and did not come out to sing birthday song. They did remember to sing for quite a few other guests though. Small gesture comes a long way. I am never going back again.

Although the tables are set up pretty close to one another, you don't get that overcrowded feeling when being in this restaurant. It is perfect for a party of two, or a party of 10. The servers are experienced, courteous, and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious.
Tip: Be sure to understand the portions of the dessert before ordering. The eclair can easily feed two people, maybe more.

The service was terrible. The staff was very cold, acted like we were a bother and it became a joke because there were a lot of staff but the were distant and rude.
Both my friend and my Food came to table cold and when asked to heat it up the waiter got mad at us. Then the neighbors on the next table asked the same thing and the staff looked at them and walked away. The people next to us got up and left in the middle of their meal.
In the next table they said. "Sir my food is cold" and the waiter said. If we hear it. It will get mushy. It's best to eat as is.

visit to Washington DC for Thanksgiving Weekend. Tough to get reservation but well worth it . Choices were abundant, service excellent , portions were huge and very caloric . Not a place to go if you are watching your weight. Fun evening , all meals were served hot and tasty.

First time! Waiter was pushy, very dark everyone around us needed to use their cell phone to read menu. Food was outstanding , best manicotti I have ever had. Prices online were much more affordable than when we received menu at restaurant. Almost left but very glad we stayed!

Great food, excellent service, but extremely crowded and uncomfortable room. Although the entire experience was very good, I have to say the room is uncomfortable, crowded and noisy. Definitely not the place for an intimate meal with conversation, but all in all a good time.

Have a gluten allergy. I requested the gluten free penne pasta and received regular, wheat pasta. It's my fault that I didn't realize my pasta wasn't penne and therefore wasn't gluten free until after I had already eaten but if a restaurant is going to offer gluten free options, they should do a better job of making sure the correct item is served.

My wife and I stumbled across Filomena while we were visiting Georgetown on vacation to DC. We were unable to get in as walk-ins on Friday night without reservations...so we made sure we made reservations for Sunday night. So glad we did, the food was phenomenal and the atmosphere was terrific. Will definitely go again...next time we are in town.

Our second visit. Fun decor, like an Italian grandmother's dining room. Attentive but not hovering service. Plenty of choices. The light level is low so take a small flashlight to read the extensive menu. A happy place. Everyone is smiling.

Food had excellent presentation and great flavor.
Unfortunately, our server was almost non-existent and by the time we did receive our food, it was lukewarm.
Everyone around us that ordered after us got our food, but we waited over 30 minutes to receive ours.
Will definitely go back, just hope we get a different server.

What A Hot Spot!!! This Authentic Restaurant is a must dine!!! The very best Italian Food I have ever had!!! They started off with the BREAD!!!! Totally awesome!!! My Family was in town and this was recommended to us. We all ordered something different so we could taste a variety of dishes. Glad we did!!! Everything was great. Found out this Restaurant has a history of a long list of Celebrities who have dine here. This will be a must stop every time we are in town!!!!!

We flew to WDC from Milwaukee in order to take a retired Colonel (friend) to Filamena's for Veteran's Day. I made the reservations well in advance. My friend lives in VA, but has never been to your restaurant, and since I've had numerous meals at Filamena's in previous years, I could not wait to share a wonderful dinner with him and his wife. Unfortunately, this was not the case. We had an early reservation (5:30 p.m.), and we were seated immediately. Our waiter appeared to be rushed, and became a bit testy when we were not ready to order immediately since we were still sharing a wonderful conversation. I've not met his wife, and we were engaged in a conversation. After dinner the bus boys reached over us a number of times clearing our napkins and glasses which became a bit embarrassing since I spoke so highly of your restaurant. The table where we were seated was next to another table the staff was preparing for a large dinner party. I can only believe they needed out table of 4 to add to the long table they were preparing for the next dinner party, which took away from our once-a-year Filamena's experience on this occasion. Since we only get to WDC once per year - I am hesitant to bring future guests and fight traffic across town from Andrews AFB in the future in order to receive such poor service. I know we will return since my husband loves your Osco Buco, but I don't believe we will be bringing any guests. This dinner meant a lot to us, and I gave your restaurant high praise when telling my friends about your restaurant - unfortunately, on this particular evening your staff did not deliver. Sorry for the poor review - but for such an expensive dinner I expected more.

I am from the Boston area and always make it a point to get to Filomena's when in the DC area. Outstanding food, ambiance and wine list. A bit crowded and noisy but that does not take away from the fantastic food. I have had many dishes and none disappoint. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I was very interested in this location. I had hear so much about it and had visited once before. It was a pleasure to share this establishment with my friends. We all enjoyed the cuisine and the atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!

Such a special place! Very busy for a Wednesday night and our table was a bit close to our neighbors but it really was no problem. Filomena's still serves some of the best food in town! It's been years since my husband and I had been but our 20th anniversary was a worthy occasion for the splurge! They have the best tomato sauce and the "Pasta Mama's" make the most delicious hand-prepared pasta's. The fish and veal dishes we had were amazing - cooked to perfection- and the cheese cake - heaven! The wait staff is top notch! Our server gave wonderful recommendations and was attentive without hovering. All-in-all, a fantastic evening that we are definitely looking forward to repeating for our next big event - our son's 18th birthday!
