The food was very good.
The reason for two stars: if this is the only meal you intend to eat that day - you are okay. The portions are enormous, you can easily share one plate between three people.
The other reason - the place is so dark everyone is using smartphones to read the menu. I'm not sure why it has to be that dark... Just doesn't make sense.
But again - the food was great. I would come back for the food.

Old Fashion restaurant not in a cute way. The food was heavy. Not truly Italian, to much spice, heavy cream, over cooked pasta, thick pizza. I had read the reviews and was interested, but we were a party of 5 and all the food was so-so. Definitely not a place I would recommend to anyone. Don't spend your money there.

I came here with my boyfriend on my birthday and had an amazing time and fantastic meal. I have Celiac Disease and need to eat gluten free, and the waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I was able to substitute gluten free pasta in one of the dishes and it was delicious!

Less than 1 mile from the Kennedy Center, so makes for a solid preshow dining location. Parking has become challenging due to work being done at the parking garage entrance. Great atmosphere. Best pasta in DC! Another great dining experience to compliment a perfect evening!

Food was excellent BUT the size of the size of the servings were WAY TOO BIG!!!! In fact, each serving could easily feed 4 or more people comfortably. I should have suspected this by the prices, but I strongly feel that the server should have warned us so that we could adjust our order according. I guess the best way to look at this experience is that we had 5 good sized "doggie bags" and enough food to meet our needs for the next week.
Bottom line: "Would I go back?" The answer is "yes", but with knowledge of how to order.

we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Filomena's. The food and service were superb! My only complaint is the noise level. We had to almost shout to near one another across the table. On the other hand, it was a very lively atmosphere.

It was oppressively hot and since I make my home in the deep Southern U.S. I'm very heat tolerant... This however, was just unbearable. The noise level was the loudest I've ever experienced in any city any where in my 20 years of business travel. It would be interesting to measure the decibel level. I only lasted through the appetizer. The heat and noise prompted a request to prepare my entree to go. Not a place to go for a relaxing dining experience. The food, while good was not worth the heat and noise .
I was very unhappy with the service and ...
I was very unhappy with the service and the food. The waiter was unfriendly. While I was ordering dinner, he left our table and took someone else's order. I found that very rude. He also spoke to me in a condescending manner. The food was mediocre. I love Italian food but this wasn't a good place. I ordered the ravioli with meatballs. I didn't like that they put mozzarella in the ravioli. It made it very messy. Most places only use ricotta in their ravioli. My partner ordered a grey goose martini and she said that it didn't taste like grey goose.

I have become a regular at Filomena's, which is very nice. The staff always acknowledge me, and it feels good when I bring guests. The food is always excellent. The wine list is extensive, but be careful if you are on a budget because they have some very good wines which can run high on price. This restaurant will always be a go-to place for important business dinners, or special family occasions.

Love this place. I took my nephew and his new girlfriend so that I could have the opportunity to judge her! We had fun. The food is great traditional Italian. The waiter was a hoot! Really made us feel welcome. He asked if I wanted a box for my leftovers. "when I said no, that's ok." He asked, "what's wrong with you? you don't like my food?" He was hilarious. I took it home and devoured the remainder before bed! Good advice. Great evening.

The food was phenomenal!!! So delicious!!!
Shared the burrata mozzarella (possibly the best I ever had)!
The manicotti was incredible, like cheesy heaven on a plate.
I was so stuffed I took the cannoli to go. And it was so different in shape than I'd ever had - like a cookie stuffed with canolli cream.

A wonderful dining experience with terrific food, fabulous service, and a feel of early Italian-American culture. The swordfish won't be seasoned with shreds of fennel or a sauce of otherworldly flavors, but it's fresh, simply and well-prepared. The desserts are wonderful. Great for a special occasion or just a romantic dinner. It's fun to eat where so many other famous people have eaten - be part of history!

I brought a friend to celebrate his birthday and what a great atmosphere it was to do this. The staff was so professional and the food was great. I definitely will return and I've already recommended Filomena to various friends.

It was very loud and you could hear your neighbors conversation more than your own. Food was good and presentation was very nice. Service was excellent from initial drink at the bar to receiving the check. Bartender was very attentive and went out of his way to insure we were happy with our drinks.

Filomena never disappoints. Great food. Great service. We always make it a point to go there when in the DC area. Our waiter was wonderful. The chef was accommodating to my husband who is vegan and prepared him an outstanding meal.

The service was great, and the staff so very personable! From the bread to the Italian hospitality this is a meal wwe will not soon forget!
