★★★★★ "The Monocle is Washington's top power lunch restaurant. If you don't know people who dine at The Monocle, you are keeping the wrong company. "
- Carter L. Clews, OpenTable, 2/26/2018

★★★★★ "Food and drink was excellent as was atmosphere and service. Little noisy but only because of a function in an adjacent room. We will absolutely be back."
- OpenTable Diner (Cincinnati), 2/7/2018

★★★★★ "Lovely dinner for business discussion; Nick and staff all were accommodating, gave us time to talk in between check ins with us. Food was perfect."
- OpenTable VIP, Teacher (Kansas City), 2/6/2018

★★★★★ "This was recommended by a patron at another establishment. We loved the food and the surroundings. Very interesting to see some of the inner workings of DC done over the dinner table. I would definitely go back. The lamb was amazing!"
- StephanieM (New York Area), OpenTable, 2/5/2018

★★★★★ "The Monocle is always a high quality choice. The owners have been on the Hill for many years and even though it's an institution, they make sure quality and service are top notch. Great place."
- OpenTable Diner (Washington DC), 1/11/2018

★★★★★ "I had not dined here in decades. It turned out to be a delightful lunch from the bread, wine list to the gracious maitre'd to our server."
- OpenTable VIP, Nancy (Washington DC), 1/3/2018

★★★★★ "While the Monocle is a classic D.C. politico spot on the Senate side of the Capitol building, it is perfect for a family dinner before a concert at the Folger. The staff welcomed and took great care of our teens. The dinner did not disappoint."
- RobG (Seattle), OpenTable (Seattle), 12/19/2017

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.
