    We went to Busboys and Poets prior to a show at the Lincoln Theater. It was easy to find and conveniently located. We were able to be seated immediately. Our service was great! I was concerned we would not have enough time to eat and get to the show, but the waiter took our order quickly, the food came out and we got our check with plenty of time. I love how you can pay at the table without having to wait! Try the vegan nachos, they were awesome!

    Banana bread bread pudding is to die for! Great atmosphere and location. The catfish is also really great. A month ago I needed a soft for my niece (sometimes you just can't wait to have something ordered)- love that I could pick up a really adorable children's book late at night! The bookstore side is so useful!

    Great place to just hang solo and read a book, sip some tea, just Enjoy the vines and music... it's also a great place to meet with friends to eat and have a few drinks. It's nice to find a place where you can comfortably do both! The food is really good... Try the vegan nachos even if you're not vegan!! Drinks are really good as well. Service was quick and friendly. All around 5 stars!!

    Busboys and Poets is one of the best restaurants in the District...and there are several locations. A wonderful diverse menu to go with the wonderful and diverse staff. Great fun environment. Reasonable prices. Delicious food. All of this of course means there can be quite a crowd, especially at Happy Hour. I usually am not there at that time but have spent many happy hours there. Highly recommended!

    This is a fantastic spot with a wide array of dishes, including many excellent gluten-free selections that are clearly marked on the menu (something that I appreciate). The fried chicken is delicious comfort food. Wait staff are really friendly and helpful. They don't do reservations online, which typically means a bit of a wait on weekend evenings, but they have a bookstore with a fun selection that you can peruse while you wait, and although they're busy (near capacity) on weekday evenings, I haven't yet needed to wait for a table on a weekday.
