Traveled to DC for business last week. Discovered this place as I walked around the neighborhood where I was staying. Food is great and the service is remarkable. Server was from Croatia and she was super cool and helpful. Her boyfriend is the bartender and was a cool dude. Cool hip quaint bar. Ate here two nights in a row! Try the bartenders nightly drink special.

Nice patio but lot of mosquitos. Food is not but nothing special. Prices are correct.

One of the most impressive restaurants under DC. I'm amazed it's still flying under the radar. (I write that because it's nearly empty every time I pass it!) They have an impressive set of cocktails and immensely flavorful dishes. I will be back... sooner than later, I hope.

I have eaten here multiple times. The food is fantastic. It reminds me of when I lived in Afghanistan. The service is stellar too. The server Emily really stands out amongst the team, but they are all great at doing their jobs. 5 stars!

The food looks like Afghan food, but the quality and taste is very far from authentic afghan food! I had Lapis twice ( both times i was invited) and didn't like it at all, it was just waste of money!

The food was delicious! We had an entirely vegan meal, full of unique flavors. There were more than 10 vegetarian and vegan options, and each one that we tried was exquisite! We highly recommend Lapis! Don't forget to try dessert.
