Victoria was incredible. The entire experience.
We visited on the fourth of July for dinner. Our reservation was at 7:30p. The place was pretty empty. However, we had to give a 100.00 guarantee that we would show up. We got a lovely table outside. The service was good but on the slow side. The menu is limited; most have a very French influence. We order cucumber caviar dip. It was perfect. We also had steak friet The flavor was great, but the meat was tough. The wine list was extensive. Anyone could find a delicious choice. Dessert Saint Honore was unbelievably good. At 8:30p, they started packing up around us to close. I understood the kitchen closed at 9 p.m., and they were ready to leave, but it made me uncomfortable so much, so I didn't even finish my last glass of wine. The prices were ok, but $33 for a tough cut of meat was annoying. We will try again but for brunch, not dinner.
Great food, drinks and ambiance! Also the decor is fabulous!
Excellent as always. Terrific service, food was great.
Great hostess, Victor was very good.
Oysters are always excellent and had the omelette for the first time. Omelette was very good, the accompanying salad was less so. The hot peppers were too much for me.
All in all however, extremely pleasant evening at Cafe Riggs.
What a nice surprise to find Cafe Riggs! We sat outside in a semi-private booth that allowed for privacy; it was quiet enough we could hear each other. The food was delicious and serving sizes were ample. A brief mention of my friend's birthday that we were celebrating led to an amazing dessert-- a banana bread pudding that was swimming in a healthy amount of warm bourbon (I think). I'll be back!
They’ve created a beautiful outdoor setup and were incredibly welcoming and attentive. The roast chicken was a treat.
Excellent as always! The new crab appetizer is outstanding!
Najid is phenomenal!
Everything was great!!!
Food wasn’t all that great but the service was good!
The service and food were just delightful. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable about pairings. I cannot wait to return!
What a find. Gorgeous interior. Can’t wait for rooftop to open
Beautiful dining room with excellent service
Service was outstanding, by far the best service I’ve had anywhere during Covid. The food was great, especially loved their hash browns. Can’t wait to go back!
Celebrating our daughters engagement for brunch. Staff was great and food was delicious
Eric is an amazing server. Food was delicious.
Beautiful spot, great food, great service. Total find
Let’s very restaurant with wonderful service. Their pricing is a bit too high.
Michael and Ben are an outstanding team. The chef does phenomenal work as well as all of the staff.
Tremendous evening as always.
Café Riggs Upstairs allows diners the luxury of a private, safe dining experience in the privacy of a reconfigured guest room (with the bed removed). The wait staff was knowledgeable and personable, with just the right amount of attention to keep the dining experience flowing at a leisurely pace. We especially liked the convenience of texting to summon the wait staff for whatever we needed. The room was immaculate, with plenty of disposable hand towels, and a private restroom to boot. What a novel concept!
Food is good and service is great. I liked that they inquired about allergies.
From the hostess to Jhavany to Ben to the food server and chef’s team to the guys at the front door—outstanding work by all of you.
What a great team of professionals you all are.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
Second experience here and always happy with food
Service is still a challenge and needs improvement.
My thanks to Michael, Tina, the amazing Chef and food runner for an excellent dining experience.
The oysters are always amazing and the duck confit transports you to a different level no matter what your day had been up until then.
Had an amazing time! Ashley was fantastic! food and service was great.
We had the most unusual experience. Apparently the dining room was closed on Christmas Eve, yet somehow we were able to make a reservation through Open Table. They honored the reservation but setting up a table in a room where the bed had been removed. It was a private dining experience that was truly extraordinary. The table was beautiful and the ambiance was spectacular. There was some confusion, however. Prior to arriving we were told that the full menu was available but when we arrived we were told that only the prix fixe was available that evening. I would highly recommend this place just to see the incredible renovation that was done on this historic Riggs Bank building. I do plan to return when the dining room opens.
The entire experience — staff, food, beverages, atmosphere — is excellent and relaxing. We always look forward to dining at Cafe Riggs!
The service is impeccable! Oysters are always fantastic and one of the best burgers in town.
Great ambiance and decor -
Roasted chicken was awesome
Some of the sides came out cold
But overall great experience at new resto in DC
Waitress was best in DC. Food really needs work.
One particular table is placed right next to a noisy HVAC. Other than that, the ambience is outstanding, and the decor, appropriate for a fine dining experience.
Tasty but expensive
Cafe Riggs is a wonderful place. The Cafe Riggs team from arrival through departure are so welcoming and gracious. Overall service is excellent and the food always perfectly prepared. We are fortunate to live in the neighborhood near Cafe Riggs, so we can dine often. If visiting DC, don’t miss it. If a DC resident, also don’t miss this wonderful restaurant.
Great ambiance for a birthday brunch with family! Service was phenomenal and the food was delicious. Will be going back- I Highly recommend!

Can be perfect for dinner with friends, a date, or a business meal. Pretty restaurant worthy of stylish attire and a champagne toast! The roast chicken is so yummy!

Thank You JamesW, We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your anniversary dinner with us, look forward to having you come back & visit us again!
Mom’s birthday!! It was perfect and social distance!!
We ate outside, and it was pretty loud because it is right next to the street. The food was okay, but you can get better from other restaurants in the city. I really wanted it to be great, but it just fell short.
