    Had dinner with two couples. Waitress didn’t write anything down. I don’t know why no one uses a pen and paper anymore. It’s not impressive to me if you don’t use a pen and paper and then proceed to mess up the entire order. A short pencil is better than an long memory. Food was not cooked correctly. Some food didn’t get delivered to the table (forgotten). Dessert was comped and then part of it was forgotten to be delivered. Dessert was delivered and then coffee ten min later! How do you not serve them together or at least coffee first! Friends showed up and we moved to the bar, we got no service. Manager had to wait on us then no one returned to our table ! We wanted to order food but no one came back so we couldn’t! Then someone randomly came by and said then needed to take our candle (the only thing that was nice by this point of the evening). Do not recommend! Staff has no clue how to run a restaurant.

    From the sense of arrival to the architecture and design to the warmth of the staff to the delicious food and creative cocktails to the managing partners, we were blown away. It’s terrific to find a new concept that hits in all cylinders. We will be back and tell all our friends.

    I had a great time here. I do think that it was a little expensive and very loud (but I am pretty sure it’s because of the event) but very good in terms of the food. Our waiter was amazing and very attentive and the ambiance was beautiful.

    We sat outside and the service was awful. We got very little attention from anyone. Also, the busser kept throwing out water from glasses after tables left - right onto the outside walkway, causing disruption. The food wasn’t bad but the tuna was mislabeled on the menu. I’d come back but for drinks but probably at the bar.

    Limited menu. Mediocre food. When we sat down, I asked for separate checks which was ignored and had to ask again when presented with one check for the two of us. This was my second visit. No plans to return. Go to Clyde's next door.

    Large, airy pub which probably shows glowing ambiance in the evening. Welcome addition to Friendship heights neighborhood. Lots of windows and ample outdoor seating. Tables have a good degree of separation. Noise levels at lunchtime with relatively few diners were manageable but i am guessing it may be rather high at full capacity. Small, eclectic lunch menu. A bit across the board. Yellowtail sashimi crudo was excellent; burger plate, ample and good. Soda bread, wonderful. Service needs some refinement. It was an excellent place to have a leisurely unbothered lunch, but for those on a tight schedule it could be problematic our initial waitress disappeared never to be seen again. After 30 min without ordering, we hailed a passing waiter who kindly accommodated. For all further service and the bill we had to actively find someone , including getting up from the table seeking out wait staff ( restaurant was not busy). Nice to have more choices in the neighborhood . The outside dining should be a hit in warmer weather. With some minor tweaks, it should be a lively popular neighborhood pub/convening space. Wishing the team well.

    This is my third visit to The Hunter’s Hound. On each visit I have been very impressed by both the host staff and the table servers. I have tried or shared the Hound’s Burger (with blue cheese and bacon), the Fish & Chips, the Mussels Magnier, The Mushroom & Black Bean Burger, and the Baratta = all were very good and definitely will be recommended to friends and likely be ordered again. The fries are very impressive. On my first visit we were offered complimentary soda bread with what I suspect/hope was Kerry Gold butter. The bread was delicious. However, it is no longer provided on a complimentary basis but is available to order as a side or as a loaf to take home. The restaurant describes itself Modern Irish America. Being Irish-American I was intrigued by this description. Physically the restaurant has a a nice Irish pub feel and lots of interesting artifacts. Menu wise = not as Irish as I would have expected/liked, especially the dessert menu = I would have like to see some more of the traditional Irish desserts, e.g., trifle, bread pudding, moss pudding, something like my grandmother’s Irish whiskey cake, something with Bailey’s (maybe ice cream) or Guinness (chocolate mousse). The bar is great and offers an excellent selection of Irish Whiskeys and some fun cocktails. There is one big negative = the sound level. If the weather is nice, request an outdoor table. Even is you are seated on the Wisconsin Avenue side of the deck, the road noise is much less loud than inside. For a finale = both the Irish and Bailey’s Irish Coffees were lovely.

    The Henry cocktail and soda bread were outstanding! Had an amazing server!! Food came out quickly too. The other dishes we tried I wouldn't recommend as I've had better burrata and veggie burgers/fries in other places. The ahi tuna soda noodles were nice, could have done with a bit more dressing. The tuna tartare appetizer was nothing special, bit bland and the toast it came with was very hard. Sticky toffee pudding was ok, but also have had better. The portion of the sticky toffee was huge and ice cream scoop tiny, prefer more equality in cake to ice cream ratio.

    First time at The Hunter’s Hound lunch time meeting with a friends . Very open and comfort design and they have an outdoor area that would be great on a sunny day . We sat at bar and our bartender/server Thyda was absolutely terrific ! Was very attentive made great recommendations on the menu and her drinks were on point . Everything we orders was fresh well prepared . Bar food bites are fun and I can’t wait to return to explore the rest of the menu

    Staff was friendly, but the food felt overpriced. $4.50 for 2 slices of 1/4” toast with butter (even if it was Kerrygold) just didn’t seem worth it. Possibly better for brunch!

    The restaurant at the time did not have many tables. Unfortunately, our waiter kept on “hiding” near the service station. This resulted in me having to get up to get her attention. Basic salad was great , but at $12 it should be.Tuna tarte was small but had lovely presentation. The mussels were bland and underwhelming. The fries are crunchy fries, but process not handmade amd for $8 you should get some love. The first round of spicy margaritas were great amd tHe second round was a completely different drink. Tons of mix - we ad to send them back. For 2 appetizers, mussels. 2 4 drinks it was $136.

    A friend and I had lunch at noon mid-week. I ordered their garden salad which was fresh and delicious and quite a big portion which I appreciated. I could have used more dressing though, which I'm sure they would have brought out but I decided not to order more. The service was excellent - professional, pleasant and prompt - albeit it wasn't crowded. I recommend a look as another option for a local restaurant.

    It was our first time eating here. I didn’t love the choices of food on the menu but our grandchildren loved their meal and my husband loved that he could wash The Masters golf and have a beer. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The ambiance was great and everyone around us seemed to be having a great time

    Fun place for bar food and drinks, not so much for a good dinner experience. The food was average, for anyone drinking wine, not a great wine list. However, if you want to hang out with friends, don't mind the noise level, it's a fun place to do so. Nice bar area.

    Food is very good. Wait staff very nice but still need more training and time. We have been a few times and have had delicious food every time. Beer is cold and cocktails are tasty. Plenty of tv’a so you don’t miss a game, but not overbearing. It will be on our regular rotation. They could probably squeeze a couple more tables in the space. Roomy.

    Third visit, this time for dinner. The food was solid, the prices quite decent and the drinks spot on. The room at happy hour was loud, so be prepared. High decibel levels seem to be the "thing" these days, so this is not a quiet Irish pub into which one can tuck for a pint and a quiet chat. Ah, well.

    Perfectly adequate but nothing exceptional at this Irish-pub-style place (the Irishness is a bit mixed up with Englishness and Scotchy shtick). Nothing to complain about the food, but nothing to rave about, either. Prices are several dollars higher per dish compared to similar places in this MoCo-DC border area.
