★★★★★ "The service is excellent as well as the food. And you can test your political IQ by identifying the politicians in the photos that line all of the walls!"

★★★★★ "The bread is truly amazing. I'm not a huge fan of bread and usually try to avoid (carbs you know). But this stuff is phenomenal. The service was delightful. A very nice old Washington style dining experience."

★★★★"A classic Capitol Hill Eatery lined with autographed photos of all the Senators who eat there (and some of whom you may see in their upstairs private dining rooms!) Excellent steak and other American cuisine well-prepared and served!"

★★★★★ "A Capitol Hill institution with pictures of Congressmen and women who have dined there adorning the walls. Finer steakhouse dining without a lot of pretenses. Good food and cocktails. Attentive but non-obtrusive service."

About the “M”

Authentic firsts are hard to find, but The Monocle is one of them. Founded in 1960, it has earned the enviable reputation as the Capitol Hill neighborhood’s “first table cloth restaurant.” In fact, it brought “dining out,” instead of just eating out, to the Hill.

A favorite for Members of Congress, staff and visitors to our nation’s capital, The Monocle is the closest restaurant to the U.S. Capitol building and Union Station and provides a delightful dining experience.

Using only the highest quality ingredients, premium Angus beef and fresh seafood, The Monocle presents an authentic American Steak and Seafood menu with innovative palate-pleasing specials.

The Monocle is open for lunch and dinner and has a full-service bar. There are also reception facilities for private events and a special wine room for intimate private gatherings for 6-10 people.
