This is Wolfgang Puck's restaurant for Asian fusion and it lives up to the Wolfgang Puck name. Unlike a lot of weirder, out-there Asian fusion, this one delivers satisfying, delicious food with good flavors every time I've been there. What do I mean by flavors? Some Asian fusion restaurants pair really different flavors together in the name of experimentation, but... More

The plates are made to be shared. Delicious Bloody Marys with bountiful garnishes. Dinner The Hot Pot table is also fun and beyond delicious ..you can only... More

Has wine, dumplings and 'lions head " dish at the bar downstairs. Wine was fine, dumplings were minimal and overpriced, lions head was disgusting. Not like real Chinese lions head (which is a huge tasty meatball), this was some crazy white chef invention. But it was gross, super hot sauce with massive garlic taste. I got sick that night, and...

For a family birthday, we visited a first-rate DC spot. Although it's part of chef/entrepreneur Wolfgang Puck's empire, the Source has its own respected chef, Scott Drewno. The restaurant premises and the food are Asian-inspired, but no one particular cuisine dominates. My spouses and I skipped starters because our entree sounded as if it might be quite filling, and we... More

We arrived at 10pm and had the chefs choice tasting menu. It included 4 apps and 4 small portion mains. It was twice as much food as we needed. Every bite was delicious. The service was excellent, casual yet attentive. The evening ended with a fun layered carrot cake surprise desert.

The Source has always been all time favorite when going to the bar. However this particular time stood out the most! This evening I went with my date and the level of service was just superb. From the greeting at the door from the detail of the waiter, I was just blown away. Usually their attention to detail is good... More

Another company Christmas party and another new adventurous restaurant to try. The evening started with a private room in the lower level of the restaurant. Our party consisted of 13 people which fit comfortably in the space with room to walk and mingle. The evening started with drinks in which there was a varying selection at the make shift bar....

I read about the Hot Pot for four at The Source and know Exec Chef, Scott Drewno likes Asian food...dumplings, in particular. The hot pot was a large Le Creuset pot set into a table (it was sitting on an induction "burner" to keep the pot hot; no open flame) filled with a (meat-based) broth. Each place setting had chopsticks,... More
