We did the dinner for 2 (2 appetizers, 2 meals and 1 dessert for $50) and added a bottle of wine for $20. The Brussels sprout appetizer... More

Joe was a great waiter he carefully walked us through the menu recommending his favorite dishes. Thank you for being a great waiter Joe! I had the skirt steak for dinner with the Kale salad but what stole my heart was dessert! The GF brownie banana split is the bomb. The Apple turnover is amazing. The ambiance of this place... More

We had a great experience at Commissary for breakfast. Kenny was our server, and he was very attentive to us and entertained some of our more ridiculous conversation topics which was very appreciated and amusing. The food and atmosphere was great and we would definitely return again! Thanks for a great experience!

I stumbled in here on a work trip and had a really pleasant lunch. We split a burger and some fish tacos. The value is extremely good and the servers were extremely friendly.

Stopped in here for the 2.50 Tuesday deals and was NOT disappointed! While the beers were smaller than pints (hey, it's 2.50) the food was incredible, the atmosphere was perfect, the bartender was charming, and the staff is extremely friendly. I had the Flash Fried Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts and a Cauliflower taco. They were both Outstanding! My mouth is... More

Thanks for the awesome review! On any normal day, the beers are 16 oz servings but it sounds like you joined us on $2.50 Tuesday, where the size of the glass is smaller. We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

Came here a few weeks ago while in DC for the weekend. Our hotel suggested we stop by Commissary for their amazing breakfast! Of all the restaurants in DC, this is one of the few who actually serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Delicious brunch on the weekends too! The vibe is super cozy and laid back, and the staff are...

Our server and service was Excellent!! The dessert & drinks were great!! but the food left much to be desired. The short ribs weren't very tender, the polenta was too mealy. Even our starter plates weren't that good. I had the lettuce wraps to start and it was just barely average. I read awesome reviews before going to Commissary, I... More

Service is friendly but sometimes slow so make sure they know you're in a hurry. It's large and can get crowded-locals kind of place.
