During the Holidays we went here with friends from out of town visiting DC. They wanted the fancy DC dining experience and that is what we got. Our group of eight went early and always remember to make your reservations here at 701! We were seated at a nice rectangular table even though I prefer round for conversations. The place... More

We have been to 701 many times and it has never disappointed. It has an excellent location right outside the Archives-Navy Memorial metro stop. I love the modern yet classy decor, sophisticated without being stuffy. The menu is diverse and the food, drinks and service are consistently excellent. There is live jazz Thursday through Sunday which adds to the nice... More

We had lunch at 701 on Dec 30th. There was a very small crowd due to the holidays when everyone seems to leave DC. The service was very attentive and cordial. The lunch menu was inviting. We had salads, grilled salmon, and gnocchi which were all very good. The dessert parfaits were outstanding! The 701 has a very classy look... More

Top tier restaurant with valet parking ($8) and excellent serving staff and nice surroundings. The menu is short but complete and offers a few "half serving" entrees. We dined with friends and the waiter gave us ample time for our discussions and patiently waited as we enjoyed a three hour dinner. Food was very good and surroundings pleasantly contemporary. Highly... More

Mid-November - after a full day of museums and walking around The Mall, this was steps away and filled with wonderful things. Two of us dropped in and hoped for an open table. Every aspect was just what we wanted for a lovely dinner in D.C.

Had a wonderful business dinner at 701. The menu is varied and the choices are healthy. The service was outstanding and the ambiance cannot be beat. It was relaxing and well appointed. The salmon was delicious and the martinis were well poured.

We had a party of 12, and the service was excellent for the entire time we were there. Multiple servers took care to make sure our drinks were refreshed. We had a limited menu based on negotiated party rate, but the Pacific halibut was excellent in an artichoke broth with hazelnut miso and fava beans. Absolutely melted in my mouth!

Thank tmoore48
