The Hollow Ratings and Reviews
Georgetown is extremely fortunate to have this dining experience in town. The ambiance, service and food is incredible. The chef is a genius as the unique food pairings delight and never disappoint. Very affordable for the experience and the food quality. Love the frequently changing menu to try new dishes and the use of locally sourced ingredients. If you haven't dined here yet, this place should be your next place to go!
Food was very good,but service was excellent,Very friendly atmosphere. Michael and Juan Carlos doing an outstanding job --enjoyed in-house bread,--- add just a pinch of salt to bread dough.Duck breast and ox tail slightly over cooked--flavor good---bacon good--over all experience very good --will return.
We wanted vegetarian options. The menu is lacking in veg options however Chef created a nice beet, strawberry salad that was delish and very pretty. Food service was very slow. We had two salads and an appetizer and we were there over 2.5 hrs. That's crazy!!! The Hollow is all about their creations. I wasn't nearly as impressed w the Hollow as the Hollow is impressed w the Hollow... But overall, was good and I'd return.
The food and service are outstanding. We had the chef's tasting menu. It is a six course menu that includes a dessert. The ingredients are local and seasonal. So, it's very fresh. One of the courses was a boar chop. I've never had boar, and I expected it to be tough and gamy. Instead it was sweet and succulent. Another dish was a waygu beef carppacio with a variety of sauce. I loved it. The star of the mean was an "apple" of marzipan and foie gras. It was luscious - soft, sweet and salty.
I am so proud to have a restaurant like this in Georgetown. I will go there whenever I have a chance.
Had a great time, staff was very attentive and cocktails were amazing! Went for our anniversary and they provided us a signed menu with signatures from the staff wishing up a Happy Anniversary! They also sat us in a unique location at the front of the restaurant! Great place for special occasions!
This is a wonderful restaurant. The chef is so creative with the locally sourced food. Everything was delicious and they accommodated my need for gluten free food in an imaginative and delicious way. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. I will be back for my anniversary:). I highly recommend.
Clever and creative menu - the chef was kind enough to swap out the truffle risotto for polenta (which was amazing!!) I actually felt like he created a custom meal just for me! It's so unique how the menu changes everyday. It's a true farm-to-table experience. Ambiance was romantic and it wasn't too loud to have a good conversation with my husband. Someone had given us a generous gift card so we enjoyed indulging in this special treat.
Food was fantastic, 5 star. For the price point, the service was great but not perfect. We were well attended to, but some tiny details were overlooked such as offering dark napkins. Both my date and I were in black and left with white lint all over us which we had to remove before moving on to our next destination. The music did not all match with the cuisine, decor, and overall feel of the restaurant. It was more like rock for a night club. Also, our reservation was at 7:15 on a Saturday and they had already ran out of 1/3 of the menu. Mixed drinks from the bar were inconsistent. All that having been said, we had an excellent experience and will try the Hollow again.
This was our second visit. The first in December 2016 was amazing. This experience fell way below expectation. Appetizer flavors did not meld. The salmon was greasy and carrots had no flavor. The beef entree was subpar and lacking flavor. Very disappointed, something has changed since December.
The service was pretty good. The food was well executed too but overpriced. If you're not interested in eating rabbit, that's a big chunk of the menu off the table. No soups or leaf salads at, and generally speaking, pretty short of vegetables or grains all around so don't expect any kind of a balanced meal. The bread? Come on! I understand restaurants want to drop bread service because it saves them a small amount, but I consider decent bread service a basic sign of quality. Not only does the Hollow toss bread service away, they replace it with a $5 appetizer bread that so small, we thought it was a joke. Then they upsell a tiny piece of Brie with it for an additional $10. Would it be too much to ask to expect a high price restaurant to bother to actually make a real desert? Kind of getting sick of desserts assembled with Basil ice cream and granola crumbles.
The service was excellent. Food was well presented, but my rabbit appetizer (or firstlings as they call it) was quite tough. My husband's rabbit (dinner) was very good. I arrived first and nobody offered to help with my coat. When my husband arrived later, they asked it they could help. I told them it was my birthday, but nobody congratulated me and certainly did not offer any birthday specials. The portions were small, which was fine, but rather expensive for the amount of food.
This was our 4th visit to The Hollow and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The menu is always changing and offers something new each time we are there. The wine list was wonderful and had excellent options available. Of course, the chef and his creativity with the food is simply awe-inspiring. On top of that, the service is also always a joy, with individuals who truly delight and revel in the wonderful items on the menu, and see to it that they are attentive and make sure your every need is taken care of, to include offering suggestions or bringing something as small as a couple of pieces of home-made bread for you to use to soak up those last drops of heavenly broth. Just a treat and always a win! Thank you!!
Beautiful ambiance and good food. For my main, I ordered the fish. It was served in a unique tandoori vessel and was tasty but I had to navigate bones, so would have preferred a 2nd fish option. I also ordered the beet appetizer which was good but would have preferred a larger portion. Obviously, a talented chef and our server did a nice job as well. I would certainly recommend The Hollow.
We go out most every Friday with friends and we like to try different restaurants and new cuisine. The old fashioned cocktail, the guys both ordered was creative, well presented and tasted great. The bread service was good and the beet salad was excellent. Our entrees were pork shank for 2 of us, one fillet, and sea bass. All of the dishes, except for the fish were terrific. The taste was fine but, it had too many fine bones. It made the fish to diificult to eat. The choice was to eat the fish or have a conversation. The diner gave up on the fish to have a conversation. Maybe we should have been informed about the fish bones when ordered. We shared 2 desserts and they were unusual and good. All in all, it was an okay evening. We had heard service is a mixed bag here, but our waiter was helpful and attentive.
We went for our anniversary and they had a private table with rose petals (fake, but still pretty) and candles lit. I appreciated that they saw my note about us celebrating and actually acted upon it (most often I find that restaurants tend to ignore the notes section of OT reservations). However the food wasn't quite what I'd hoped for. It was good, but not amazing. I would probably go down the street to Wildfire before returning to the Hollow.
Wait staff friendly but at times too many involved with one table. Staff did not understand rules regarding corking bottles of wine. We were also double billed for a bottle of wine, which was corrected once pointed out. Despite mediocre service, our entrees were very good.
We have eaten at The Hollow about seven or eight times, and always thought the food was tasty and just a little different from most places.However we were really disappointed with our meal last Saturday. There were six or seven entree choices and they had run out of both my first choice and my husband's .This wasn't the first time this has happened.We just felt that if you don't have a large selection of entrees , you should make sure you have prepared enough of everything. We chose other entrees and my husband enjoyed his but the cod that I chose wasn't very tasty. It is a shame because we really loved the food here in the past.
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.
