Yum, yum! Ruben egg rolls, pickles, crispy falafel. Delicious sandwiches including pastrami, rubens & corned beef. My preference is to sit at the back bar and choose a few things to share while enjoying a good bottle of Gruner Veltliner form their cracking short wine...More

Lunch service was reasonably quick, and the menu has a good variety of choices. The Reuben was good, though a bit bland. The sandwich’s bread was nicely grilled. The side of French fries was nicely seasoned.

Got off the Metro in Dupont Circle looking for lunch. I am a frequent visitor to D.C. and this was a stop on my metro trip to a destination without a restaurant area. A great stop. Not a large place, large enough. Menu has enough...More

... but it's not bad. The DGS deli at Dupont Circle is not a real big city deli. But they do have some decent food. I got the small pastrami sandwich (along with a side of slaw) for lunch, which as plenty. The pastrami is...More

We wanted a Jewish deli for lunch and tried DGS. It was average at best. The pastrami was thick sliced and too fatty. Definitely not what we are used to. We will try someplace different next time.

Calling this restaurant a delicatessen is like calling McDonald's a steakhouse. Imagine $18 for a corn beef sandwich. Limited menu supposedly using high-end ingredients, very misleading . Should've realized it when they served a nine dollar glass of wine in a beautiful wine glass. What...More

We had dinner here yesterday and were not disappointed. From the very tasty Schmoozer drink - lots of fresh mint- to the Reuben egg rolls - to the hot pastrami sandwich - it was all wonderful! Flavorful, served in a timely fashion by super friendly...More
