The service was great, and the servers were very friendly! They were very helpful and happy to answer questions and serve you. The service was extra quick, and the food came fast. The food was delicious, one of the best restaurants I have been to so far in DC! Excellent place to eat! I recommend the potato gnocchi, delicious!

Ok-- we didn't even eat here. Didn't need to. A restaurant with service this rude must have food to match. We are 50 something urban professionals-- and maybe that marked us as undesireable customers. But clearly the twenty something attitudinal hostess who gave us the nasty apprising once over when we walked in didn't like what she saw. The bar was noisy-- so we asked if there was a quieter table-- yeah I know, we're old fasioned & actually like to share conversation with our meal. She made a show of struggling to find a table then took us upstairs where there was a waitstaff of four+ and 20 empty tables. She seated us below the speaker which was playing one of my favorite early Cure songs, albeit with the amp dialed up to 11. We asked for a window table and were told coldly that those were reserved for larger parties ( really?). She left and we looked at each other & said, damn she was rude. Then the menu. Pretentious rot from a chef who somewhere got the idea that if you put unlikely and contrary foods together then you get "hote cuisine". Just because the food sound unlikely doesn't make it good. Honestly we were going to stay despite the nasty service, but the menu was unappetizing. I like innovative tasting menus at modernist restaurants. This was something else. Van Gogh used a knife to slather on paint. So do the folks who make landscapes for Budget Inn to screw to their walls. I think this restaurant was the latter. Since this place is better left to transplants from Akron Ohio who think they're being trendy, we left it to them.

Our waiter jokingly started our meal by saying something like "The service here is so-so, but the food is fantastic." I'd say that's very accurate, minus the food being fantastic (it's nothing special). The pizza had an odd taste to it that I couldn't put my finger on; the potato gnocchi and dessert (chocolate budino) was fine, and I'd highly recommend splitting the gnocchi with someone if you plan on eating something else with your meal (it's a very dense dish, obviously). The waiter was very inattentive to the level of water in our glasses, and didn't seem busy to justify this. Oh, and he also spilled water on my friend's phone when he finally did fill our glasses. Not cool. Overall, I'd recommend going somewhere else, especially if you're looking for good pizza, because this place doesn't have it. Despite all of the hype I've heard about the restaurant would say, the pizza is mediocre at best. You're better off going to somewhere like Matchbox or We, The Pizza if you want delicious pizza inside the District.

It's been a while since I was last year, but I can still remember the meal! Took a client here and needed to impress - they loved it. Enjoyed the tasting menu and there is a spectacular champagne menu, not to mention red wine and prosecco on tap. I hope by now they have made their cocktail glasses larger; the little glasses they used were cute but a bit of an insult for the price we paid.

Do not go here. We went out to lunch there during the Cherry Blossom festival, since it got spectacular reviews from the Washingtonian. I ordered an "American Pie," which is a regular basil and tomato sauce pizza. The dough was rubbery; holding the slices was nearly impossible. The center had a pool of oil in it. It was the worst pizza that I have ever had, and I am not exaggerating. The service was terrible. Our dishes came out haphazardly. Between the time that I received my awful pizza and the time that the last person in our group received hers, at least 30 minutes passed by. And just to top this off, the meal was not cheap. As one of the members of our group said, we felt like we "had been had."

Came here at a friend's recommendation. It was more informal than I expected in terms of ambiance, but overall a fine experience. We shared two pizzas - Get Him to the Greek and Casper the Friendly Ghost. Both had really nice crusts and were done well, though neither was stunning. We also each got a [canned] cider that was okay. The meal was fine, it just ended up costing $60 (incl. tax and tip). It feels like for $30 per person, one should be wowed a little more.

I was incredibly underwhelmed by everything about Graffiato. I had heard so many great things about it, but it's really not that amazing, and I'm not even sure if I'll ever go back again. The food wasn't bad necessarily, but it just wasn't that great. Certainly not delicious enough that I would understand what all the fuss is about. The best thing I had was the Bucatini Cacio e Pepe. I also tried the Broccolini, the American Pie, and the Chocolate Budino. Again, it was all edible, but not that special. The service was mediocre -- our waiter was incredibly inattentive about bringing us water (I had to drink from my dining companion's water glass on two separate occasions), and when he did bring us water, he spilled it all over my cell phone, which was on the table. (At which point he grabbed it up and proceeded to dry it on his pants. Weird.) And last but not least, my OpenTable reservation was cancelled, even though I arrived on time and checked in with the hostess. So I didn't get my points. All in all, I was not impressed. Spend your money elsewhere.

Excellent! Great for lunch or dinner. My goto spot in DC and northern VA. The caramel gelato will not disappoint.
