Roof Terrace Restaurant Restaurant Review

: As a destination restaurant for culture buffs, the Roof Terrace has no equal in DC. Within moments, patrons can descend to a concert, a theater or an event in the Kennedy Center after dining. The dinner menu may feature such entrées as crab cakes, grilled tuna, pan-seared duck breast, braised lamb shanks and an onion-crusted salmon. Dessert choices include a caramel toffee cheesecake.

Roof Terrace Restaurant, Kennedy Center
by Karen2 on Tue Aug 05, 2008 3:04 am
With no "captive audience," it would be closed; it has become a disaster. The prix fixe menu is a pedestrian soup or salad, a choice of 3 uninspired main courses, and a beautiful but overly chocolatey dessert; the few a la carte choices were characterless. Nearly 2 hours prior to the show, the salad was served before the wine. Our orders were offered to the wrong people, difficult with 3 choices and a table for 2. The wait staff looks downtrodden and never bothered to ask if we wanted more wine or how the meal was (obviously bad). The dissapointment on diners' faces, especially prior to anticipating the festive Lion King, said it all. :cry: :cry: :cry:
