The Hollow Ratings and Reviews

Food was great as always. I ordered the filet because I don't remember seeing a steak on the menu in my previous visits and I usually order the duck because it is so good. For $42 I definitely expected a larger cut of meat. It was very small. Too small for the price point in my opinion. However, it was cooked to perfection. The gnocchi was outstanding. My wife ordered the duck and loved it, I did as well since I snacked on it too. I can't remember the full contents of the dessert, but it was a chocolate semifesco, with a persimmon sorbet and a chocolate cinnamon sauce.

Overall The Hollow was an amazing dining experience. However, I was promised a specific table during the reservation. Upon arrival it was clear the table was no longer available. A minor issue quickly made up by the staff and amazing dishes. Highly recommend the chefs five course meal.

We chose The Hollow for our anniversary dinner because we wanted to try something different. We're not cooking experts so the menu was a bit foreign. Our waitress did an excellent job of explaining things in simpler terms to help us with selections. Everything was delicious, we will be back.

My husband and I dined at The Hollow on Saturday. We left town for a month with questions as to whether or not The Hollow would be re-opened. There was a change in business structure and interior modifications. We were so pleased to find that, indeed, The Hollow was back in business as usual. The only glitch was that the liquor license had to be changed and no alcohol could be sold. It was BYOB with the assurance their license would be back in the next week. This was not a problem for us but it might be a good idea to call ahead and check to see if you need to bring a bottle of wine. Jason's food, as usual, is inventive, fresh and locally sourced. It's also beautifully crafted. Please don't miss the opportunity to experience something as special in Georgetown.

It was our first time at The Hollow and we'll definitely be back. We shared several small plates and each dish was exquisitely presented. We particularly liked that the server described each dish as he brought it to the table. Everything we ate was delicious. The Hollow is a Georgetown gem.

The food was creative and had wonderful flavor combinations. The waitstaff and chef are very friendly and happy to take the time to explain each dish. No need to be intimidated even if you aren't a foody because they will explain it all. The service was the perfect blend of attentive but not hovering.

Excellent meal. Had to order the campfire carpaccio a second time with our main course because it was so good. Lots of creative energy and love going into this food. Amazing flavors and great (free while they get their liquor license!) punch from the bar.
Thanks for a delightful evening!

It's actually the wife writing the review. The night we went, there was a fixed price menu $45.
The appetizer was very good....scallops with pesto blintz. His entree was goat shank with dried cherries and cubed sweet potatoes..it was excellent. I had twice fried grouper with spiced greens...also excellent. Now, to the disappointing part...dessert. We ordered the chocolate one,
with a pecan ice cream. It was minuscule in a huge bowl, didn't have the consistency of ice cream, or didn't taste like pecans. We told the waiter we were disappointed, so he deducted $10. from the bill of $122. The husband have two glass of a very good wine, and I had ice tea. We will go back for another special occasion.

My friends and family have been going to the Hollow since it opened over 3 year ago. However, we had a very disappointing meal last year...both food and service, and had not been back. I missed it so much that I decided to try one more time, and was not disappointed in the least. The food was back to its very nice quality and our service was impeccable. So glad I gave it another chance. Will continue to enjoy this wonderful little Gerogtown spot.

Outstanding reataurant. Daily changing fixed priced menu has a something for eveyone, big portions, locally sourced. Duck is a signature dish and deserves it. Very nice reasonably priced wine list. A must for anyone who appreciate good food and meticulous preparation.

We enjoyed an outstanding meal. The chef surprised us with 7 different courses. Food was creative, beautifully plated, well seasoned, and well cooked. The hollow is such a unique find in an often predictable Georgetown restaurant scene. The cocktail menu is great, and the staff so kind and friendly.

Selected the chef's special five-course dinner with wine pairings. Each course was a delicious surprise. Sommelier was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and attentive. Service was impeccable. Definitely would return and recommend to others.

We have eaten here several times. The food has always been unique and very tasty. This was our first experience with their fixed menu. It makes sense for a small restaurant. You get fresh food and there is probably not a lot wasted. There was 5 or 6 choices in each category. My husband had steak, that he loved but kept coming over to my duck that was perfect. We will definitely keep coming back for special occasions.

This is definitely a foodie restaurant serving a prix fix kind or farm to table menu. We found the food to be quite good, if maybe just a tad on the bland side, still savory though. The service was excellent and very professional (not always a common occurrence). This is a great gem hidden in Georgetown.

Probably out of the average price range for fixed income . The food was interesting and tasty although you won't win any brisket awards. Unfortunately my wife and I both woke up with acute acid reflux at about two AM. The only thing we had in common was the cake with ice cream. Sorry, sorta takes the edge off the experience. I still don't know why restaurants charge so much for a small glass of wine when you can buy a good tasting bottle of wine for the same amount.

The restaurant is beautiful and contemporary, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. My husband had the duck strudel as appetizer and that was amazing. Explosion of flavours. Both of us had the "where is the meet" which is a very tasteful brisket tagine with potatoes. Truly great food. For dinner they work with a 3 course menu - appetizer, entree and desert. We will go back for sure!

The menu recently changed and is not reflective of the website. The service was amazing with knowledgeable insights to the menu. The wind pairing is also excellent. On the main dish - the brisket was very fatty and the lamb was not spicy. I would recommend this establishment to anyone who want to adventure with a different style of meal. However, it was not what we expected...

Truly one of a kind spot on the square in Georgetown. When these guys moved to town, we already had a few nice spots and this particular building had a revolving door of poorly performing restaurants.
This chef has a true gift. The food is beautiful and always fantastic. If you are not adventurous, like me, it is terrifying but always excellent. Go ahead and take the chance.

The presentation was stellar and the food was very delicious and interesting. We were a little disappointed that they require all the diners at the table to order at the same price point. There's a three course prix fixe menu that is lower priced or you can choose the more expensive tasting menu that lets you try five or six different dishes. We decided that one of us would spring for the higher priced tasting menu, but our budget constrained us to have the other order the prix fixe. However, we ended up both going with the prix fixe because they came back and reported that we both had to order the same. Other than that, it was a foodie paradise.
