-Notified after buying VIP seats that there was a limited menu, closest thing to an entree was a pizza. That pizza was much like something that would be baked by a light bulb starter oven. -Had to get my own drinks after waiting for the waitress 20 mins for the first round and another 20 for the second. Never got requested ice. -Manager offered a burger or dessert after we ordered pizza and fish tacos instead of what we wanted. Bill shows up with burger charged. I explained to the manager that I thought he had offered the burger or dessert as a makeup for the limited menu. He said the makeup was offering the burger even though it wasn't on the menu. I told him we wouldn't have ordered the other things first if we had the opportunity to get the burger the first time. -Additionally, they spent a lot of time explaining why everything was so out of order ... management transition, new chef, different menu ... customers don't need to hear why you can't deliver competent service. -If your favorite act is at the Howard and you have free tickets, go. Otherwise, don't suffer through the treatment.

Chairs and tables too cramped. Meat tasteless and half done. Powered runny eggs. Donuts wet. The most disappointing brunch I ever had! How can you mess up donuts?

If you're in DC, catching a show at the Howard Theatre is a must! I was totally blown away by the renovations! The service was exceptional, our server was knowledgable and friendly. The food is the best in town, little pricey, but the intention for a show is to splurge a bit. I ordered the shrimp n grits entree, soooooo good. Fabolous time, great venue, food remarkable. I strongly recommend this delightful place!
