  • Kasia Kthe foursquare tips and reviews are outdated since the menu changes often. All the food was great though!

  • Maddy JSit at the chef bar - cool experience.

  • Sandra RubinchikThe conchiglie bolognese is more than worth all the embarrassment of trying to pronounce it.

  • Ellie LAmazing beer list!!!

  • Martina E.The pre appetizer bread sampler is so good, and the french fries are perfect!

    55555 by Martina E.

  • Rachel K.Vegetarians: limited options. They say farm to table but that's mostly meat (they butcher meat on premise). You can eat: mushroom risotto with capers, spring pea flatbread and all the great desserts.

  • John DThe duck is amazing

  • Liz Caselli-MechaelGreat croissant

  • Ruth CNot sure what the big deal is. Like the concept but the static menu bores me. Unsure of the freshness of the produce or food handling. I have always felt ill after eating there.

  • Mark J.Delicious food with an unparalleled beer selection. Seriously, like 500 varieties of bottled beer or something ridiculous.

    55555 by Mark J.

  • Brian JengUpscale bar food decent great atmosphere

    55555 by Brian Jeng

  • Allison K.All locally sourced plates!! Bread was amazing & made fresh! Fig and prosciutto pizza was tasty. Wish we did the tasting menu! Loved the beer selection. You should definitely sampled a few!

    55555 by Allison K.

  • Robb F.Washingtonian says don't miss: Arctic-char tartare; charcuterie board; fig-and-prosciutto flatbread; bratwurst burger; honey-roasted duck breast; peanut-butter cheesecake; fried chicken and waffles.

  • Washington PostFollowing an overnight cooling, the mac and cheese sticks are cut info 3-1/4-inch-by-1-inch bricks, coated with garlic-infused panko bread crumbs, fired and served with a sweet tomato relish.

  • Erik BrokIf you are a beer enthusiast you should select your own beers rather than go with the beer menu that is offered to go with the food.

    55555 by Erik Brok

  • Cheeky jThis is the most pretentious and over-priced place I've ever been to. The food was tasteless. The have an "ethos" that takes 15 mins to explain. Go upstairs to Churchkey instead.

  • Arnaud RéautéVery good menu (flatbreads are amazing). Didn't try the beers but it seems to be a must do! Service was awesome and the food amazing.

  • Javier A.Service was pretty deficient. Slow. Unhelpful. And they bring the wrong things.

  • Eric Franciscothe chicken and waffles are really good, but not really worth the $$. French toast was dry and flavorless.

    33333 by Eric Francisco

    55555 by Chuck L

  • Chuck LThe brat burger was amaze-balls!

    55555 by Chuck L

    55555 by Kiki K.

    33333 by Jasmine

  • Nathan H.Very happy with the Tasting Menu! Ask for the beer that tastes like an expresso shot to go with desert

    55555 by Nathan H.

    55555 by Anna E.

    55555 by Wally N.

  • BlackBook MagazineInauguration drinking games! Sure the truffle mac & cheese and honey-glazed duck breast are also worth Instagramming, but it's mostly the 555 beers that keeps Birch & Barley a DC best.

    55555 by BlackBook Magazine

    55555 by Andrew

  • Audrey A.AWESOME, knowledgable staff...thanks Zach! Flatbread is a safe bet, but venture out as it's all tasty. LOVED the skate wing. Everything is seasonal, so menu is constantly changing.

    55555 by Audrey A.

  • Bon Appetit MagazineAt this beer-themed restaurant, Tiffany MacIssac's menu of sweet treats reads like the 7-Eleven snack aisle of our dreams—"Hostess" cupcake, oatmeal cream pie. Must order: cashew "Snickers" bar.

    55555 by Bon Appetit Magazine

  • TBDBitches Who Brunch love B&B's brunch. Try the house-made donuts - which includes a toffee-bacon donut (!).

    55555 by TBD
