    Nice ambiance but overpriced and average food

    This place is cool as it is both a book store and restaurant, however, the food really isn't that great given the prices they charge. I would recommend sticking to having a coffee or a beer at Kramer and save the eating for somewhere else.

    A Sure bet

    Not my favorite place, but everyone in your party will find something to eat here. It's a little pricey for what you get. However, they have the best sea bass dish, yum!

    Good Food but Way Too Pricey

    The food is pretty good, but for what you pay, it's overpriced. The service was good--a little slow considering there were very few people there--but I can't get over the portion sizes and the prices for what you get. I had the sea bass, which tasted wonderful. My dining partner had the crab cake, which was just ok. The desserts and people watching are very good at Kramer's, though.

    The bottom line on Sunday brunch.

    If you make it there around noon-ish on Sunday, expect about a 25 minute wait -- but no worries, you can browse the bookstore and the time will fly by. Excellent food with good-sized portions make pretty much every thing on the brunch menu a good choice. The muenu is varied and each choice is unique and worthwhile. Two or three brunch specials are offered, as well. You get a free sm OJ and mini-muffins when you are seated, and all brunches come with a free drink (bloody mary, mimosa, or other alcoholic beverage). The bloody marys are pretty good. The service was friendly and fairly prompt. Expect to pay about $20 a person overall. If that price is right for you, you'll be hard pressed to find any finer brunch in DC than Kramerbooks.

    Books and great food

    The best part, for me, to going to Kramerbooks is getting to browse all the different books while waiting for my table. I've eaten there three times and every time the food was wonderful. They seem to be pretty busy in the evenings, though and can get pretty loud so if you're looking for a place to have a quiet dinner, this isn't it.
