Convenient after a day on the hill. Good meeting place for a group. Appetizers were run of the mill. Drinks were average.

We are not even done with the meal and couldn't wait to post. Dined w/ family. Mom had restaurant, I had 3. Food was so spot on w/ flavor. Sous Bradley came out and chatted about their approach. So pleasantly surprised.

Dined outside and had the lemon pancakes. They were subtle and sweet. Hostess and server were not as personable as I imagined they could be.More

Very good, charming staff and good food sitting outside (air conditioning often too cold inside!). Recommend as a local alternative to Hyatt.

Description
Just steps away from the U.S. Capitol, Art and Soul boasts an atmosphere of relaxed elegance and true southern hospitality. The Capitol Hill restaurant offers guests a seasonal and regionally inspired menu highlighting simple, honest food from local farms. The result of this approach is food that is straightforward and pays tribute to chefs Art Smith and Wes Morton’s southern roots and decades of Southern cooking. Chef Wes grew up in the kitchen, and his love for cooking can be traced back to Abeville, La., where every Sunday the family would gather for a lunch of southern food. Art and Soul carries out that tradition of sharing meals and bringing people together around the table.
