  • Valentin G.Start with the chicken sandwich for $5 is amazing! From the small plates you want to try the roasted carrots, the scallops, and the beef cheeks! The drinks are amazing as well.

  • EaterThe Dabney, Jeremiah Langhorne's Washington debut, shows some of the most aggressive commitment to local sourcing and Mid-Atlantic cuisine in the region. As a result, the dishes change frequently.

  • Johnmael MHonestly, I could not agree on a favorite plate. Everything is extremely good. Service is great!

  • Bon Appetit MagazineWith no gas lines in the kitchen, Langhorne relies almost solely upon live fire. Snapper, rockfish, pork belly, quail, Camembert: You name it, and Langhorne can cook it over fiery embers.

  • Ben R.The kitchen is firing on all cylinders now: the Dabney is fantastic. Small plates are on the small side but each dish was exceptional. Standouts: pork belly, black bass, hearth roasted vegetables.

  • Yoomi BThe menu changes, but get anything hearth-roasted. We had the hearth roasted vegetables and they were amazing! Service was great, dining room is cozy and it was a perfect special occasion dinner.

  • Matt B.Very warm and cozy ambience and is great for a date. Every dish we had was interesting and delicious. Try to sit near the open kitchen.

  • Rick LEnter this place from the back in Blagden Alley. Has a small but quality local beer selection. I wouldn't recommend it for vegetarians.

  • Randy L.The nicest staff. Everyone is so friendly, everyone is always smiling. I felt very welcomed.

  • Trevor K.Wonderful addition to Historic Shaw and unique dining experience. All tables overlook the kitchen and chefs.The biscuit was unreal and we loved our porkey fish and rib eye. Menu changes daily.

  • Bryan S.The food is amazing and the space is really cool. While the staff was polite, the service was slow. We were seated about 20 min after our reservation time and received our food 45 min after ordering.
