My husband and I had been wanting to try 1905 for some time, and finally did. The food was fine, but not fabulous. The best thing we ate was the deviled egg appetizer. 5 halves (nice size), and they were delicious. My husband isn't a huge fan of deviled eggs, but loved these. The tater tots were also very good,... More

We came here with a party of five ladies and ordered only appetizers because they all sounded so fantastic. They were very large portions and we ended up taking food home with us. the service was good without being interfering. the prices were not too steep and the quality of the food and wine was divine. It is not very... More

It was late on a Tuesday so we were there with a few other tables. Don't let the ATM right at the door stop you from trying this place! Dark, mysterious decor! Great service and the food is great. Small and large plates. We had a variety of small plates - beets, kale salad, pork belly, burratta, all good. Reasonably... More

the roof holds about 20, but its right in the sky, with great views of sunset. Service was a little inconsistent, but the food was excellent and healthy, a little on the expensive side for us.

Our son just moved to DC, and we were looking for a place to eat close to where he lives. Stumbled onto "1905" on the internet and the reviews were good enough to tempt us to try it. Don't be put off by the entrance to the restaurant. It's in an old building, and when you walk in, there is... More

We were looking to try a new place for dinner in the U street corridor. We searched online, and the reviews of 1905 were good. We decided to go by. We would have never known it was there, had we not specifically been searching for it. A door off the street, in a non-descript row house on 9th street off... More

Very uncomfortable seating and AC not working properly. Two people of a party of 5 did not have space to fit in their feet. The food was very good.

There is a great restaurant upstairs at 1905 9th Street NW. Walk up a dimly lit staircase leading to a dark wood room with soft lighting. I was feeling like I was in a Speakeasy with a good warm vibe. We made a reservation online easily and got a table for four on a Friday at 7:30pm with ease. The... More

Tony runs a well-oiled machine at 1905! I wanted to host 40 colleagues (that turned into 45 last minute) for a private dinner with a pre-selected menu and signature drink, served upon arrival. Tony and team were well-organized and accommodating when the group arrived and the food was AMAZING. Definitely order the crayfish hushpuppies.

I decided to try 1905 for the first time after an event at the nearby 9:30 Club. The upstairs restaurant is a rather unique, cozy space with dark decor and a very open dining area (the bar area is a bit more snug). Initially, I was a bit off-put by the slow service (after 15 minutes and the server still... More
