Featuring “exceptional, not overly expensive” small plates, José Andrés’ “one-of-a-kind” Penn Quarter Med hot spot is a “go-to” choice for everything from dining with out-of-towners to “impressing” a first date; its light, “airy” space and “sunny service” supply the “warm” backdrop for its “magic” mix of traditional and “inventive” meze, and the “bar scene is a hoot” , though it can be a “little too loud.”

I am vegan and our waitress Maria was so accommodating and understanding. She had them make me vegan bread and the food was delicious. The lunch deal is great, can’t beat 25 bucks for 4 items! Will definitely be back. The kitchen gets back up around 12:30

This was my first time at a Mediterranean restaurant, and I will be coming back. We gave the Chef's Experience a try and our only complaint is that it was too much food and we didn't properly pace ourselves early on. ;) Despite that, we powered through, I'm glad we did. The Apple galatopita was one of the best deserts we have had in years. Regardless of what you get for your apps and main course, do yourself a favor and save some room!

This place was incredible. Far beyond my "I will spend my own money here" threshold, but wonderful. Try the lamb shoulder. It's $85 but well worth it. And their bar is absolutely incredible. I've come back here just to have drinks before.
