★★★★★ "We were greeted by the manager that treated us like we had dined there 500 times before. Just so warm and welcoming; a true gentleman. The restaurant is clean and comfortable and the menu had something for everyone. I’m not sure if the food or the service took top ranking or if both were just beyond excellent."

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.
