St. Anselm - DC
Overall, the food was good. Unfortunately, I think service was lacking here. Our waitress was covering numerous tables and could not dedicate any time to us. I had written a note on my reservation that we were celebrating my husbands birthday and there was no mention of it by our waitress. Further, our food order came out wrong but we did not make a big deal of it given how busy the place was. Regardless, busy or not, I would like my order to come out right. Lastly, we asked our waitress if we could substitute an ingredient for one of the salads due to a dietary restriction and she did not want to even bother and ask the chef. I chose not to push and did not order the salad but I was not sure what the big deal was.
Great food, awesome experience and servers - very pleased
The food and service was as wonderful as we expected.
Love this spot. Consistently delicious and fun night out! Take out works great too!
Excellent and modern steakhouse without being overtly steakhouse-like.
Appetizers, salads and steaks were excellent. Cocktails, dessert, and service were mixed.
We've been to St Anselm's several times pre- and during COVID. Perhaps it was the time of day (4:30 on a Sunday) and they are down servers like many restaurants, but we were seated in a corner with several other tables when there were open tables throughout the rest of the restaurant. The service was not good and we were waiting on drinks and the meals were delivered before we were done with the appetizers. The food was good as always. However, given the cost of the meals/drinks and our previous experiences we expected a lot more. It will be a while before we return if at all - hoping they get their mojo back.
Great brunch. Every dish done just so. Expensive but worth it.
Wonderful experience I will be returning soon for the lamb steak
Overall great experience, the food and drinks were phenomenal!
Great restaurant. Food was amazing. The hardwood bench seating was quite uncomfortable with no padding which is the only reason I have rated it 4 stars instead of 5.
Food was delicious! Axe Handle Ribeye was flavorful and cooked to perfection. Will return.
Don’t miss the biscuits (ask for strawberry jam instead of the pimento cheese) and thick cut bacon…
Great place for brunch.
It's great to see an unpretentious steak house that delivers. The food is amazing. Would highly recommend this place.
All in all, a very nice night out. We sat outside in our own cubicle that had a fan. The restaurant’s interior looked great. I wish COVID concerns hadn’t made us opt for sitting outdoors. As for the food, the endive salad and the sides (spinach and mashed potatoes) were excellent. But we were both disappointed with our steaks. They weren’t bad but when you go to a steakhouse you expect superb beef. The NY strip was the better of the two though nothing special. The most that can be said of the ribeye is that it was big- not flavorful or tender and came out more rare than the ordered medium rare. Dessert (a cookie) was good but,again, nothing special and not worth the price.
Service was friendly and attentive.
Food was tasty! The bacon and deviled egg w/ blue crab were our favorites!
St Anselm — from cocktails to biscuits to that b’day carrot cake w/just enough candles — truthfully & delightedly, E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G was flawless, captivating, & yummy for our Fri evening b’day celebration!! Just like the candles, the b’day girl was lit w/excitement! Paul & staff, thx for every special touch! We 💕 St A!!!
I had the best server ever in Kamiece (sp?). Everything she recommended was delicious and I tried things I normally wouldn’t like. A great spot
Inside ambiance is wonderful. Outside is in a parking lot in 95 degree heat. Despite the cute little individual pods, indoor dining would have been preferable.
Very helpful waiter! After we decided we would prefer to eat inside, he figured out a way to get us an excellent table inside.
The service was very good and my fish was good. But the strip steak we had was overcooked and very tough. Had a hard time cutting it with the knife. Why don't you buy the prime strips from Costco. So much better and they are as tender as butter.
Would have loved to eat inside, but totally get it
So good! Biscuit to die for. Loved the whole branzino, NY strip and mashed potatoes. Great atmosphere and service
I love st anselm! Great food. Especially the biscuits.
This place is truly wonderful! The quality of the food is over-the-top for the price. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. We love the contrast between the interior decorating theme and the surrounding area. Any time we're near D.C., we make a reservation!
A solid choice. The staff is friendly and the drinks hit the spot. Great monkey bread but the biscuits and pimento cheese is the best. Don’t miss that app—it’s my favorite. So good! I’ve tried the brunch chicken sandwich twice but left most of it on my plate both times. I thought the first time was a fluke but ended up disappointed by it on the second try as well. Skip it for something else. Will be back—just with a new main next time. But still recommend St. Anselm overall!
Wonderful brunch outing! The menu is amazing and won’t disappoint!
Excellent always. I miss the giant prawn. Much more fun than the treditional steakhouses in this city.
Enjoyed every moment, would recommend and return next time I’m in DC.
Somm Megan picked us out an amazing barbaresco. The steak au poive is phenomenal.
Fun spot, great options for lunch. Great playlist.
Great to every thing- cocktails, seasonal appetizers (tomato salad), biscuits with pimiento, rockfish…I could go on.
Had a lovely dinner. Great service and food was delicious.
Food was excellent! Salmon collar was a standout dish. Good wines by the glass too. Our waiter was able to point us to a Hungarian white and a Israeli rose that were both outstanding! And very interesting!
I made reservations for a celebratory date while on a short trip to D.C. We sat in one of the cool outdoor structures outside. The food is INCREDIBLE and the service was fantastic. My only advice is not to fill up on the appetizers before the entre arrives. I absolutely want to return my next time in town!
Food excellent at good prices. Casual atmosphere. Service unpretentious.
The time limits at the tables given the price of dining is ridiculous. Having our entrees rushed out in 10 minutes and being asked to leave the table at the two hour mark despite having spent hundreds of dollars will prevent me from dining at St A again.
This place NEVER disappoints. Everyone is so friendly and the food is PHENOMENAL!!
