The decor is a cozy mix of old and new, keeping the feeling of a well-lived-in space. The service was friendly, helpful, and casual. The food was excellent. Lot's of comfort food, some Southern influence, good local selection, all delicious!

the roof holds about 20, but its right in the sky, with great views of sunset. Service was a little inconsistent, but the food was excellent and healthy, a little on the expensive side for us.

Our son just moved to DC, and we were looking for a place to eat close to where he lives. Stumbled onto "1905" on the internet and the reviews were good enough to tempt us to try it. Don't be put off by the entrance...More
