St. Anselm - DC
Mother visiting from overseas.
Wonderful experience as always!
Terrific restaurant, can't wait to go back.
The staff here is friendly and helpful and really want you to have the best experience possible. All the items we ordered were terrific, just a great experience all the way around.
Good neighborhood spot for good food, steaks and hand crafted cocktails
I really like St Anselm. It's lively. The food trends towards comfort food. It's got a southern twist. Cocktail list is inventive. It's got a fantastic wine program, probably a much bigger list than it needs. Well worth it. While in enjoy dinner there, the brunch is fantastic.
Enjoyed dinner as always! It was our first time visiting since the pandemic started and the entire setup was safe outdoors. The waitstaff was very attentive and kept the drinks/food flowing. Will definitely be back!
Great food and service, can't wait to go back! The biscuits were amazing, and the whole fish my wife ordered was wonderful.
All the food was great: we ordered the biscuits, butcher's steak, grilled broccoli, crispy smashed potatoes, and chocolate cake. Everything was excellent, and we appreciate the sustainable sourcing. The prices are on the high side, but the portions were so generous that we ended up taking home a doggie bag of almost everything. We received excellent, energetic service from Chris, and he and the kitchen took care to ensure that a food allergy was thoroughly accommodated -- with information, recommendations on what could be ordered, and warnings of what should be avoided. Seating requests were also accommodated (a table not so close to another). My only criticism was the noise level (too high), but we did enjoy the music selection!
I guess because it was Father's Day, service was a little slow. Sat for awhile before our waitress appeared. A lot going on. Good thing OUR Father was patient.
Delicious per usual. The food is outstanding and the waiters/waitresses are so friendly and knowledgeable.
First time eating here and I was not disappointed! From the front door to the timely delivery of food, everything was great! Lovely decor, not too loud for brunch and no masks required! I would definitely recommend this place.
The service and food were awesome! Will definitely come back and recommend it to friends.
Great service and food. We went for brunch with out 4yo and 8-month-old and the server was very kind.
Great brunch! Lovely first time experience. Excellent food and service! We'll be back!
This was hands down the best dinner I’ve had in a very long time.
Celebrating end of school year
Great dinner! Food was superb! Highly recommend and would return when in DC
Wow! What a great experience! From the minute we walked in the door, Chris the host was helpful and so kind. Carlo our waiter was amazing — so professional, pleasant and efficient! The ambience and decor is amazing. I will return!
Nice place, loved the booth seating. Biscuits are amazing, definitely order for brunch. Overall a good time! Will love to check out the Brooklyn location.
butcher’s steak is hands down the best steak in town. don’t forget to order blue crab deviled eggs and buttermilk biscuits with pimento cheese. service, food and ambiance are fantastic 10 out of 10 recommend!
Fantastic dinner as always. The food is marvelous and our waiter, Carlos, was knowledgeable and kind and had great timing.
Great! One of my favourite restaurants in DC, appreciate the pandemic seating outside.
Fantastic birthday celebration outdoors at St. Anselm! Our server (former bartender) was always present when we needed him, and hugely knowledgeable and excited about drink and food options. We'll definitely be back!
Service is hit or miss which is a bummer because the food is pretty good.
I think the outdoor dining was great during Covid but now you sit in a wooden cubicle for an expensive dinner compared to the inside it is really not very nice. The ribeye was very disappointing compared to one I had at the Bethesda restaurant a few weeks before. The deviled eggs and oysters were delicious
Great food, great service. I’ve never had a bad item here.
Rockfish sauce needs a redux. Rockfish si, mussel sauce no.
Our server, Carlos was exceptional! Peter, Mgr. on Duty came over to welcome us and even chatted with us. A nice touch. The food was amazing. It was my birthday and we received a complimentary glass of wine. The rock fish and sword fish were superb. But those biscuits “sayyyy what?”’Amazing. A great time!!
We had a wonderful dinner. The experience was great but Bella made it even better! She was a wonderful server that checked on us enough, had great suggestions and witty banter but left us alone when the time was appropriate to continue our conversation. We would certainly come back for the food but the service was truly memorable!
The food was great and the service was amazing. Kind of sad they don’t have a happy hour. We got the monster prawn very good and the smashed potatoes as well as the beef tartare all very good!
excellent service and very accommodating. great food!!!
Went for the first time for our anniversary. Had a mediocre experience after high expectations and hearing great things.
Two different sets of biscuits came out cold in the center. Received the wrong side dish and had to ask to have it replaced. Lamb leg steak tasted gamey and not fully cooked in a few spots. Friends had called ahead to have drinks/carrot cake paid for and presented to us as a surprise, with a personalized card. The server didn’t communicate to us that the drinks/cake was from anyone nor did they present us with the card.
In DC visiting for biz trip & was near my hotel. Absolutely incredible place & the steak, wow! Service at all levels, excellent.
I love St. Anselm - it felt as if the restaurant is leaning back into post-pandemic service and staff seemed new and overwhelmed. So give them your patience and love (and tips$$$) as we all get back into the swing of things!
Looking for a steakhouse....that you won't feel guilty for ordering seafood, or even chicken? Then this place is well worth coming to.
The bartenders know how to make the classic cocktails, and have a bunch of more complex drinks worth trying too.
Great modern, younger take on the steakhouse, with something for everyone....except vegans, I guess.
I'll start by saying I never write reviews. But this place was SO GOOD I had to say something - it was one of the best meals I've ever had. I got the smashed potatoes, broccoli, swordfish steak and oysters. The potatoes were impossibly good - so fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside, and they came with ranch that tasted homemade. I don't normally like ranch but I loved it. The swordfish had such a soft, buttery texture, and the chimichurri sauce was perfect. The broccoli and oysters were delicious too. The ambience was also great - the booths have an intimate, cozy feel and the music is not too loud so you can hear each other talk. Great place for a date!
Birthday celebration with delicious foods and excellent service
One of my fave DC spots. Consistently delicious food, great service, and amazing cocktails. Highly recommend
