Been There Eaten That on Jun 12, 2013
I am totally pumped up for dinner at Komi. Washingtonian has just named it the number one restaurant in the area for the fourth year in a row...
What links the many courses at this modern Greek restaurant is a reverence for great ingredients and superb taste.

Kingpins of every industry, particularly politics (the President and Michelle have been spotted here on date night), frequent the restaurant, so keep an eye out.
The food was sophisticated and delicious. The services excellent. The wines, however, were not at the same level and generally entry level niche wines.

Amazing and completely 100% worth the money and worth the hype. Come HUNGRY. Like starving. It's an insane amount of food and wine.

Main course was provincial and I've had better meals at this price point....ran up the bill with H20 ($7) without asking if we wanted more. If you go, don't face the kitchen, it ruins the surprise.

Sit back, relax, let them take care of you. Worth every penny. Excellent or foodies.

The alcohol pairing is definitely worth the extra $70. There are so many flavors throughout the meal that it only makes sense to have unique drinks to supplement your food.

Excellent dining experience time and again!

A haute Dupont Circle spot that takes Greece as a starting point (slow-roasted baby goat with pita and tzatziki; foie gras and Wagyu-beef-tongue gyro).
by Travel + Leisure
Hands down best restaurant in DC. Do the wine pairing with the tasting menu and you will have a constant flow of food and drink until you can no linger move!
The goat with the feta guacamole is life changing. Still Thinking about it, two days later!!

First beef tongue! Tasty!

Inside this unassuming rowhouse next to a CVS, Johnny Monis is putting out the top culinary experience in Washington. The wine pairing ($70 per person) is generous and full of offbeat picks.

Make your reservations a month in advance. Johnny Monis' Komi is not only one of the best restaurants in DC, but the entire region, so book now!

Unpretentious, friendly, highly knowledgeable. The food is outta this world. From goat to uni, Creative surprises to counter your expectations. Minimal sauce, honest food. Wine pairing a must!

Order the goat. It's worth the upcharge -- but it's their signature dish that is worth every amazing, wonderful, savory bite.

get the wine pairing

Such a lavish restaurant. Meeting w/ the housewives of D.C. :)

Indulge in an endless amount of Mediterranean flavors at Komi. Multi-course dinners with creative and innovative dishes make dining here a one of a kind experience.

Chef Jonny is very innovative. Great place for a romantic dinner. Spit roast goat with three sides is delicious. -Tamesha Warren, Top Chef
Must-try pastas: pappardelle with a ragout of rabbit and olives, spaghetti with a creamy sea urchin, and agnolotti with Kabuki squash and served with pork sausage.

Don't take a picture of your food. They don't like that.

The wine pairing is a must. It's a splurge on top of a splurge, but why not? You're already splurging. And have you ever had sparkling sake?
by Lauren K.
The tasting menu at arguably the best restaurant in the District always includes a selection of beautiful pastas. Our top choice? Chef Johnny Monis's spaghetti with crab and sea urchin.
by Bon Appetit Magazine
Just a couple months after The President and 1st lady visit, not only did chef/owner Johnny Monis get the Obama "bump" in business, but was also serving an unlikely course: A mini half-smoke.
A romantic candlelit dinner will thrill your date at this Italian-American spot. The roast pigeon, served on a bed of feathery mushrooms, is a mouth-watering masterpiece.
Make your reservation early!
