The small café restaurant at the front of the Lombardy Hotel is not well known, but it should be. It has a short menu with a nice mix of salads, sandwiches and main courses. The service is excellent and the room itself is light and airy, with large window that catch the sun on a bright day. It is rarely... More

The doorman greets you as a most welcome guest. When I asked about parking, he told me with a smile he can provide valet parking. When I asked the cost, he very kindly said it would be $20 which for DC is a decent value. More to the point, he made no face when I asked about price. The rest... More

We had dinner here during a stay a the Hotel Lombardy. As a hotel cafe, it has near-zero ambiance (and it didn't help that we were the only diners at 9:30 on a Friday night). Nor is the wine list going to burn most of you down. But the food was quite good. My crab cakes were large and fresh,... More

Nice food, environment, decoration, kind service and delicious bread. A little bit expensive, not sure if the food justifies the price, but nice and cozy. We spent a nice time

We stayed a couple of nights in late Octoberin the hotel Lombardy .Forgot to mention that the breakfast is as good as you are going to get anywhere around and it's served in a small room off the main reception area. Very friendly and attentive staff. Give it a try.
