Based on both recommendations and convenience of location 10 of went to Cedar for brunch. Restaurant was far from crowded and yet the service was quite slow. As usual I opted for the vegan option and of the two dishes I ate, one overwhelmed and one underwhelmed me: excellent vegan Cesar salad and only average (flavorless) tofu scramble. Admittedly I did not take the advice of the sever who recommended one of the tempeh dishes. Coffee was strong and the other meals (eggs, sausages, toast) were all good but no one said great.

For a change, I liked 90% of the menu so it was hard to decide. We went for restaurant week- 3 courses $35- I got the beet salad, tuna steak, and chocolate mousse. It was good, service was good, and I cant wait to go back for brunch!

We were excited based on the reviews
The fish was poorly prepared
The meat entree tough
Service just ok

Must have been a bad night based on other reviews
Although there were virtually no other people in the restaurant than our group of 12

I have been to 5-star vegan restaurants many many times and this restaurant is not only on-par but BETTER! The food was unbelievably delicious. We had theatre tix so we opted for the early pre-fixe meal. For $35! +$20 wine pairing (very nicely priced) we had the vegan caesar salad (best caesar salad we have both ever had!) smoky tempeh with just the right amount of dressing fabulous paired with a nice rose, then we had the ravioli, homemade marinara with fresh veggies paired with a cote du rhone (amazing!) and we finished with a decadent peanut butter and chocolate mousse with vegan vanilla ice cream paired with a nice plum port. Whoa! The service was perfect, food absolutely delicious. We will most likely be back within the next week to try more dishes. Beautiful little underground restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

We were recommended Cedar by some friends who are local to DC, as it offered a vegan option for one of our party.

You are greeted by stairs which lead down to a beautifully lit, nicely decorated restaurant with bar area. We arrived early evening but there was already a good buzz about the place.

Our waitress was superb. Just the perfect tone with some good fun thrown in. We all ordered a different dish and we were all extremely happy. Wonderful flavour combos from perfectly cooked dishes. And then there were the desserts....oh wow.

We paid roughly $40 each for 2 courses including a couple of drinks. A perfectly fair price for the quality of the food, service and surroundings.
