El Filomena es perfecto para un almuerzo de negocios, pero también para una elegante cena a la luz de las velas.
Ate there twice well I was in DC. Completely packed because it's so good. Even on a Monday night!
Great food with generous portions. The tables were packed in there so seat was on top of each other with made serving difficult. Waiters were attentive but hard to hear because of the noise level.
Filomena’s always awesome!
Always lives up to the hype, best Italian food in DC hands down!
Huge portions, helpful staff, incredible atmosphere. This place is a must visit!!
Going at lunch is a great deal because it’s a cheaper menu and you get a large portion of food and likely access to the salad bar! They’re also very great about customizing for vegetarians and even if something isn’t on the menu! Food taste wasn’t as amazing as I expected, but still good!
Best calamari ever. And I've had some amazing calamari. The pasta was perfection, the service kind, and I can't wait to go again!
The food at Filomena's is absolutely delicious and the portions humongous (probably enough for 3 meals). Service was completely attentive and fast! The only possible criticism is the noise level. It is very loud but even with that being said it won't keep me and my family from coming back.
Always great experience every time we go
The service, staff and food is excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for your dining pleasure. Best Italian food in the area...
Superb service for the right price. Our server Eduardo was the best. The ambiance is perfect and the food is delicious, totally recommended you won’t be disappointed by this Georgetown classic.
Food is not what it used to be. There are much better options for Italian food in DC now. This restaurant is past its heyday.
Great food, service and atmosphere
Whenever I am in DC, several times per year, I take my family and/or friends to Filomena. This trip we ate there twice. The first night we had Peter as a waiter. Peter is an outstanding waiter, attentive, and charming. Our second visit we had Tony. What a difference in service. Tony was preoccupied with friends at a neighboring table and he made it clear we were nothing but an annoyance to him. The food is always good at Filomena but next time I will ask if we can wait for one of Peter's tables.
The food was amazing. It was really tight in the restaurant but our daughter loved celebrating her birthday there.
Wonderful food and service. Great atmosphere and reasonable prices
Excellent food and service. The noise level is ear-shattering.
Amazing food and service!
It was amazing! We are definitely coming back!
Fantastic, as always!
It was a wonderful place to take my family, including my little ones, for a birthday lunch! Food was delicious!
So much food, but so good! kind of old school decor, but didn't mind it.
Honestly there is so much to say about Filomena that it is hard to know where to start. So I will just sum it up in one word. PHENOMENAL.
Impeccable service, food was good but not quite what I expected after everyone raved. I got lobster ravioli, absolutely swimming in sauce, far too much, ruined the dish. Others enjoyed their meals, but again, not overly impressed. The star of the show was the service for sure.
I finally made it to Filomena after hearing so much about it from friends for months! I was able to make a reservation and we were seated shortly after arriving. The waiting area was jam packed, so I was glad I was able to reserve a table in advance. It was pretty loud in the restaurant and the tables are pretty close together. Other than that, the ambiance was nice, Valentine's decorations GALORE. The food was really good, but I think the portions could have been a little bigger for the price. The strawberry cheesecake was probably the best I've had! Overall, I enjoyed it and would go again.
We have dined here many times before, this experience was quite disappointing. Mainly based on service. Please note we were dining on a weekday at a non-peak time so the restaurant was not even very busy. After taking order all the menus were just left at the table, I had to return them myself. Not the level of service I would expect at this particular restaurant. After taking our order our waiter basically seemed to forget about us entirely. My husband sat the entire meal without ever being offered a drink refill. No one came by to check on us and see how our food was. When we finished we had to wait forever to receive boxes for our leftovers and then waited forever once again to receive the check. We were dining with three children so this really put a damper on what should have been an enjoyable meal. I spoke to someone at the front desk towards the end but they seemed to busy to care. Quite disappointed with our experience and we will likely not be returning.
Everything was perfect as always.
The tables are REALLY close together - the waiters kept bumping into our chairs trying to pass through. I don't know if it is normally that way or if it was just for Valentine's Day weekend. BUT THE FOOD!!!! Outstanding! We must have been hungry because we wanted one of everything on the menu! Everything tasted so fresh! The portions are huge, so either be really hungry or be glad you won't have to cook for a few days! So good!
well worth the cost, the food is delicious and service is great!
We were seated almost 30 minutes after the reservation despite tables for 2 being empty. The food was good but service was not prompt nor timely. I was disappointed for sure. We almost walked out to opt for other restaurants in the area.
The food was amazing! The service was a little slow and my drink was never refilled. Our table was really close to the one next to us so it was hard to get up from the table or in to sit.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Ambiance was great. Highly recommended for a romantic date
Tony the manager was great!
We dined at Filomena Ristorante for our "Galentine's Day" Dinner this past Saturday. The Staff was very kind and accommodating. The dessert displays had our mouths watering and our meals were heaven on earth.
It has been 15 years since I have been to Filomena’s and it was as good and romantic as I remember. 1st Time was back in 1984 when I was a college puke and had no money, we would go there for their lasagna special $4 with all the bread you could eat. The best.
Today, it is fantastic, we ordered the fried lobster tail appetizer - so good and we both ordered an entree - delicious but we could have easily shared an entree. We had to get a dessert and the pistachio chocolate mousse cake was so good.
It’s busy, its friendly and it’s loud like a great Italian restaurant is supposed to be and we are going back.
Best Italian food I’ve had. Fresh! Fresh! A little on the pricey side...I’ve seen bigger portions at Carmine’s for roughly the same price but here, you’re paying for quality and authenticity. Will be back again!
The food was excellent as it has been every time we have been there.
It was my firs time at the restaurant. The food was amazing. Looking forward to going back soon.
