The food and atmosphere was AMAZING; Full of flavor. Only thing was the pasta that was a little dry, although the flavor was there.
Took my family to BDT for a birthday brunch. Glad we had a reservation as they were turning people away. Service and food were well above average. It lacks the energy and international flavor of their normal business but I hope the old staff is able to return as business picks up. This is my favorite restaurant in all of DC.
Excellent food! Vegetables were cooked to perfection....in-season veggies. Duck was even better than in Canada and shirt rib was delicious. Wait staff woregloves, masks and some even with shields. We ate outside, well-distanced from other diners.
Delightful evening, highly recommend Blue Duck Tavern!
Great food but pricy. However you get what you pay for great service and an upscale dining experience
We went there during this social distancing time, there were very few people. Food & service were excellent. It is a nice place to go with friends. They seating outside also. Highly recommend to go with friends.
Blue duck never disappoints! Great staff and wonderful food!
Always a first class experience for casual dining. Service is impeccable; menu is limited but always seasonally appropriate and flawlessly executed. A reliable gem ...
Was just happy to be apart of history. They accommodated my Mom and I at the last minute and we experienced service above self.
Cold corn soup was fabulous. Duck and braised ribs were excellent. We ate inside as no outside tables were available but plexiglass barriers above the booths have been added for pandemic privacy.
Food was mediocre and not worth the money paid. Service was subpar.
The staff from the moment we walked in treated us as family and went above and beyond to ensure we were properly taken care of. Look forward to returning soon to eat at another time of day.
Wonderful food, fantastic service and respectful initiatives considering Covid and social distancing (masks, table spacing, hand sanitizer)
I was surprised at the food. There wasn't one item that jumped out as excellent. That's odd considering the prices and the michelin rating.
All around amazing! This is an expensive restaurant but it is worth it for a nice dinner. The wait staff was super friendly and we even got a free glass of champagne!
Despite the heat, it was a marvelous meal. The food and service were fantastic and the pandemic accommodations were effective without being the least bit intrusive. I highly recommend Blue Duck Ravern.
Wonderful service and wonderful food. This is one of the best places in DC and although it’s not cheap, it’s most certainly worth it. The only negative in my experience was that the restroom could have been kept in slightly better shape.
Food was very poor and overpriced
It was perfect on the outdoor terrace in every way
Wonderful dinner for my daughter's birthday. Food was amazing as usual and the service was excellent. They followed the recommended social distancing guidelines and everyone had on their masks. We used our smart phones to access the menu. Can't wait to return!
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Blue Duck Tavern.
Food was great (as usual)! Service was excellent.
This is the reason we keep coming back here.
Exceptional food. Excellent service. The apple pie can actually be shared by four, even though is says for two.
Luis was the best waiter I’ve ever had a Blue Duck Tavern.
Our 2nd time back to DC and dining here again was such a great experience. Especially with how the pandemic has affected the restaurant industry it was good to see all the safety precautions and cleaning measures taken by the staff. Food was exceptional as always. The roasted duck and the vegetarian pasta were the highlights for me and my wife. The bartender was one of the servers that kept us coming back as well as the awesome drinks and recommendations he had with such a lively and genuinely fun personality. We dined here twice since we were already staying at the Park Hyatt and each time was just plain wonderful. We will forever be loyal customers and dining patrons to this establishment whenever we come back again to the DC area. NY foodies would definitely love this place. Highly recommended.
Amazing food and service. We need the craft cocktail menu back. Glad to come to lunch, I missed the BDT!
Had one of the best meals I have ever had in DC at Blue Duck. Granted, you are paying for it, but each dish was exceptional. I am still dreaming of the steak I had while my girlfriend swore it was the best leg of duck she had ever had. My only regret is that we only ordered one order of the scallops instead of getting two dishes. Service was exceptional and friendly. Answered all our questions and helped us pick a great bottle of wine in our budget (we're not the $200 a bottle crowd). Can't wait to return.
Amazing staff, great food, and ambiance!
We’ve been to Blue Duck several times and it still is my favorite restaurant in DC and one of my favorites of all the cities and restaurants I’ve experienced. The food is always excellent, the ambiance is sophisticated but approachable and comfortable and the service is always top notch.
We had reservations at 8pm but didn’t get seated until 845pm. Waited another 45 mins and had to go request to get waited on so we can order dinner. Understand we are in a new normal but to not get waited on for roughly 45mins deserves for a poor rating. I expected better from this establishment
The Blue Duck Tavern has returned from their pandemic closure and has not lost a step. The food is amazing and the service remains unparalleled.
Food was amazing, service was a bit too attentive. The host was judgmental about the fact I was dining alone and about my shoes. Since I was dining alone they placed me in the back corner next to a very loud waterfall
Lovely, as always! Made the birthday celebration special.
This place is a good place for a dinner date where you can share entree together.
We had a wonderful dinner at Blue Duck Tavern! Can’t wait to go back
The food was very good as always. The waitstaff was obnoxious I believe because they discovered that we ordered a bottle of wine at the bar while waiting for our reservation and didn't order another at our table. Really? we were purchasing from the same institution. Bad behavior for such an expensive place.
Fabulous as always!
It was a great experience. I would definitely go again.
Back again to enjoy time in D.C. and staying at the Park Hyatt. Nice to get a great meal when getting later from out of town!
Terrific service, delicious food, grateful.
Food and service fantastic, would recommend 100 times over just a wonderful experience from start to finish.
Waiter steered me toward the chicken, which was pretty dry. A big letdown.
