★★★★★ "Thanks to other reviews we booked Monocle for dinner for 4. All agreed that the cocktails, entrees (halibut & lamb chops), desserts were excellent as was the service. Lots of capitol hill history on the walls adds to the warmth of this neighborhood gem."

★★★★★ "With so many good new restaurants in DC it's sometimes too easy to overlook the great ones that withstood the test of time. The Monocle does not disappoint."

★★★★★ "I often have dinner here but first time I planned lunch with colleagues hoping for relaxing meal with limited time to spare. Wasn't disappointed. Service (including valet parking) was on top of everything, food was fresh and well-served."

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.
