Restaurant's heart is in the right place but sophomoric service doesn't do kitchen any favors, especially for a $300 meal for two.
Cozy setting in a townhouse in Dupont Circle. Menu has several choices for each course. Everything sounded great. It was hard to choose! Everything was very good. Wine pairings are the way to go with so many different courses.
As a foodie from Atlanta, I am very particular about my dining experiences. We have great restaurants and they are hard to beat. Eola was a very nice surprise. The price fixed menu was helpful since we had a group of 8 diners. There were options for a vegetarian choice, an offal menu or the regular tasting. First I must... More

Small seating with fixed price menu but ample per appetizer delights, ample portions and dishes you won't cook at home. Wine list pricey but good selection.
After hearing a lot of buzz about this restaurant, on a date night in DC my partner and I decided to try Eola. At first, I was very impressed -- the menu changes every day, so I was excited for fresh, highly seasonal flavors when I saw the rotating menus on the website. The day of the reservation, we got...
