For pizza lovers, Comet Ping Pong has been a fixture of upper Northwest DC for more than a decade. On a recent visit to Comet, we could see why. My wife's custom pizza (mushroom, olives, and sundried tomato) and my Districto Federal pizza (ground beef,...More

This restaurant is off the main drag so you can definitely get a feel for the local culture here. Their pizzas are super unique and have fun crazy names. I recommend the smoky, with mushrooms and bacon. I had never had anything like it. Service...More

We live in the neighborhood and regularly visit Comet. We absolutely love it and is one of our favorite places to eat. I love their salads (arugula salad and their chick pea salads are my favorites!!) and we've had many of their speciality and make...More

If you like personal-sized gourmet pizzas with interesting ingredients, then this is a great choice. The thin crust pizzas are cooked quickly in a wood-fired oven. My only complaint is the overabundance of garlic, which is rough for me personally.

I had to check this out after all the notoriety died down and I'm glad I did. They have a wide variety of excellent pizzas and salads with a great beer selection to wash it down. Very reasonably priced as well!

Awesome pizza. Super quirky – you eat on top of ping pong tables. You enjoy yourself while fighting fake news!

Food is good, fun atmosphere, but way overpriced for what it is. If you are okay with a big bill for pizza and wings, go for it. Taking advantage of their location in the posh NW suburbs.

I am looking to book a stay at this hotel in December. I have seen lots of reviews talk about construction happening at the hotel. Will this be over by December? If no, what construction is taking place?
