I feel annoy when I wanted the real soul food but I end up getting the sweet collard green or cabbage. Not here at the Langston Bar and Grill, the food is quite good. My partner and I had jerk wings with dirty rice appetizer, grilled pork chop and crab cake for entrée…as we know, it is very easy to... More

I treated my niece to a weekend lunch and visited this restaurant with a GroupOn. Let's just say, I will never come here again.

I purchased a deal from groupon which included one appetizer, two entrees and either two glasses of wine or two beers. First of all, the neighborhood was sketchy. There was a guy out front sitting on the sidewalk nodding out. We took an uber so I have no insight on parking. Our waitress was very nice, but My husband ordered... More

Responded to a groupon offer. The restaurant is located on an upcoming neighborhood on Benning road. Currently, the neighborhood could be shady late in the evening. There is parking on the street. We ordered oxtail platter, ribs and sides of Fried Okra and fried cabbage. The fried okra was superb with fresh okra pieces fried with batter. It tasted great.... More

Great place to eat in DC. Don't let the neighborhood chase you away, the food is awesome. Parking was easy. Salad, then a grilled pork chop with garlic mashed and stewed cabbage along with homemade crab cakes, chips, cole slaw, homemade tartar and remoulade sauces. Homemade peach cobbler and cookies and cream ice cream. Yummy. Service was cheerful and attentive.... More

Langston Bar and Grille was a pleasant surprise. The establishment has a cozy and pleasant atmosphere and the hostess/bartender was very engaging and pleasant. We received recommendations about what to order from other patrons seated at the bar; we also ate at the bar and had so much food we barely had room to place all of the dishes. The... More

We had a groupon and were looking forward to using it. I had visited the restaurant's website beforehand to look at the menu and all of the options looked good, so I was even more excited about dining there. There were several people seated at the bar when I entered the restaurant, and a couple of people behind the bar.... More
