While searching for the perfect venue for my 35th birthday party, I stumbled across One Lounge in D.C. I had requested information from several different venues throughout D.C., and had spoken to several different event coordinators. After speaking with Dan, I knew that One Lounge...More

We spent the weekend in Dupont Circle and this restaurant had outdoor seating which sounded like fun given the great weather. After sitting outside for over 15 minutes, we finally got water. We ordered drinks (strawberry mojito and a beer), which showed up 10 minutes...More

Well shoot Sal, that certainly does not reflect the experience we want our customers to have at One Lounge. I'm genuinely sorry for that. I totally agree, if a place is really busy, I cut the server some slack too but when it's not bursting...More

Service was non-existent. For sitting at a lounge restaurant for two hours, think our server stopped at the table four times. We ordered the Hummingbird and Dark & Stormy drinks; our first drinks were superb; the second round lame. As for food, the crispy Fish...More

With an experience like that I wouldn't want to spend one more minute in the lounge either. Thats just terrible and it sounds like it was a breakdown on many levels, sort of a perfect storm of a cruddy time. I really apologize and would...More

Staying in Dupont Circle for a weeks vacation. Convenient location. I had fish tacos, not much flavor. Fish and chips weren't much better. A bit overpriced for what we received, Service was friendly. It was a bit noisy for us. But it appeared others liked...More

Not a tapas lover, but have to admit these were pretty darn good, and would return to have them again and again. Friendly staff, very good food, reasonably priced!

The food was average, the service was truly terrible. I got fed up with the server apologising, drink orders would be forgotten, the bill would be incorrect and the wait was extensive.
