15 Ria (Fifteen Ria)

I've eaten here a few times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Simply put, the food is good but the prices are a bit much....whether it's for the breakfast buffet ($20) or a dinner ($25 average). Service is good but they also miss some cues. Waiters should be dressed up more. Each time I visit, my reach is expanding to other eateries that satifies the palate the wallet at once. 15 Ria should take notice.

I went here with a large group of people for lunch. The food was ok--nothing special--but the service was quite off. They didn't time the meal well at all. I actually found the food to be quite boring, and something I could probably make at home if I had time. Inside the restaurant you feel like you're in a hotel restaurant. I heard breakfast is pretty good here, but have never experienced it.

I've eaten at several of D.C. restaurants over the years as well as worked in many under the expert teachings of their executive chefs. What I find lacking here at 15ria lacking were several things. For example mouthwatering is a word this restaurant throws around on it's website and well several guest and myself needed that mouthwatering to put moister in the dry food we were served. The Vanilla glazed pork porterhouse was over done and the whipped potatoes and brandy cream sauce were heat-lamped. Now I respect Chef Allen's cooking, I think his kitchen failed him in satisfying my guest of 15. The popcorn shrimp and calamari with cayenne remoulade delicious as it may seem tends to be overly salted and palate draining. The Chefs featured soup was a green salad blended and paprika added for flavor> kind of soup. I'll step away from food, because my guest and I were honored to try everything on the menu atleast twice. So on the fair note only a few things could miss the crit they justly deserve. Service: I've worked as a server, floor manager, and front of the house manager. I know service and I know the people you serve. The hosted took our reservation wrong and instead of apologizing argued with myself about the correct way of placing a reservation. The night we went to 15ria it was a party of 20 before my party of 15. Four servers neither payed attention to my party until an hour after we had been seated.

Don't let the hotel location of this restaurant deter you from this great little restauarant in the DoubleTree Logan Circle. Very good food and decent prices in a nice, low-lit, romantic atmosphere. The real gem here, though, is the drinks......creative martinis, all made with fresh ingredients and juices. The Spiced Pear was one of the best martinis I have ever had...so good I ordered a second.
