Called this place ahead for a reservation and literally waited 2 hours before needing to leave because they couldn’t get it together enough to seat us. No one even cared and their food didn’t even look that good.

Hello Jillian, apologies for the wait. We tend to get very busy during brunch on the weekend and Capitol Hill is our smallest location. Please contact us at jomidian@salisholdings.com, hopefully we can set you up at our much larger location on 14th Street.

Went to Ted's for a birthday brunch. We drove in from Baltimore and it was well worth it! All of the food was amazing and the cocktails were fun and delicious. Ted's makes their own pop tarts which are definitely worth trying!

From pure memory there were no specific gluten free options, but the menu is varied so gluten free I am sure would not be hard to order there.
