I went yesterday with a girlfriend for our annual birthday dinner. We decided to try a new place because we kept going to the same restaurant (because it was awesome) and found a Groupon. The atmosphere is nice. Lots of different types of seating. Indoor/outdoor/bar/boot/high table, etc. They can accommodate parties of all sizes. The menu has a decent selection.... More

We booked this restaurant on a bad tip for somewhere that was "family friendly" and good for a reunion with friends we hadn't seen in 10 years. Totally off base. Barcode has a fabulous and vibrant bar scene and the drinks were well mixed. That is the only reason people should come here. Having a kid's menu does not a... More

I had an amazing experience at BarCode. I highly recommend this restaurant. The spicy thai mussels are amazing. Our server was so nice and took really great care of us. It is a clean restaurant and would be a great place for a date night. Both my husband and I enjoyed our food. I had the lobster roll which had... More

Barcode is located in the business district in downtown DC at the corner of 17th Street, NW and L Street, NW. It is a great location to go to after work for cocktails and appetizers. It also has a very good wine list and dinner menu. There is a large outdoor dining area in good weather. The restaurant is very... More

This place was unbelievably good!! I would eat there every day they had so many things on the menu I wanted to try. Wish the service was better because I needed a drink a bunch of times so not sure if we had a bad waitress or if they r understaffed. There was a buffet for a party close to... More

Good selection on the menu. Modern minimalistic feel to the place. Kind of the drop-in-for-quick-lunch place. Food is good. Serving friendly. I came here twice for lunch in my five day dc stay.

Not our normal "restaurant" experience - guess I didn't really understand what Barcode is . . . I'm guessing it's a very different vibe, literally, on the weekend from a Monday night when we went. There's some booth seating and lots of high tables. There was a DJ setup, though when there only taped music and a handful of patrons... More

The concierge from our hotel recommended this place. He called ahead and spoke with the manager and the cook due to one of our party has a severe food allergy. Most of us ordered appetizers which were fabulous and then dinner. I ordered the lobster roll which was good. The manager kept coming over and checking with us which was... More

I visited this place to connect with friends for a bite to eat and down time period was pleasantly surprised that the food was outstanding and well prepared. Music could have been a bit different butt a place to catch up with friends and have a few cocktails a plus. Servers were attentive some not as friendly but overall a... More
