Reviews and Recommendations


“Thanks so much for ALL of your help with this event (and for being super patient because this was so last minute). I reached out for a debriefing this morning and I got fabulous feedback from the hosts. They said everyone had a wonderful evening in such a beautiful space. The food, the service and the atmosphere were all terrific. Thank you so much for taking such good care of our lawyers. I look forward to sending more groups your way now that I am planning for the DC office. Have an amazing weekend and thanks so much again!”

“Just a quick note to thank you and the wonderful Dirty Habit staff for making our event so special and a huge success! Even my boss, who doesn’t give compliments easily, remarked several times about how wonderful everything was. Your staff did such a fantastic job setting up the space and tending to our every need – the balloons I ordered were perfectly placed and there were just enough tables and seating for everyone to mingle comfortably. A special acknowledgment to [the team] who went above and beyond to ensure that everything was taken care of both before guests arrived and during the event. The guest of honor and his attending family were impressed by the beautiful space and the delicious food. We all really enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the opportunity to come together as friends in such a fabulous setting to celebrate the holiday season and to wish a beloved colleague a fond farewell. Thank you so much for helping us to arrange our event and I’m sure we’ll be back again!!”

“My friends and I had a WONDERFUL time Saturday. Everything was perfect from the food, to the hospitality, the drinks were a hit and my friends were very impressed. I couldn't have asked for a better experience than the one I received on Saturday, especially since this was my first time ever renting a venue for my birthday; and that was all because of you and your wonderful staff. Thank you and please send a huge thank you to your colleagues for ensuring that I had the best birthday dinner a girl could ask for. I look forward to hosting future events at Dirty Habit and will NOT hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know who wants to host an event in the future. Thank you again!”

“Thank you for your help yesterday and every step along the way! I know my team had a blast and the indoor space worked out really well! As I mentioned to one of the managers, I was really impressed with how the server team and everyone on staff had a “can do / how can I help” approach to requests. I felt like the staff was invested in creating a good experience for us! And everyone raved about the food too! Having not tried any options before ordering the selectin (again, thanks for your help with this), I was so happy / relieved to like everything I ate!”

“I would be remiss if I did not extend my sincere appreciation to you and the staff for all of your assistance with [the Company] Holiday Party. It was a busy day, but everyone made the experience a memorable one. Please extend my sincere appreciation to the following individuals for their hard work: • The banquet manager who managed the reception with ease. It's clear that he knows the importance of customer service and worked tirelessly to make sure everyone had a great experience. At one point, he looked at the monitors and asked me to send any logo possible so he can personalize the event. That was invaluable. There was never a "no" it was, "how can I help you". • The bartender who delivered quality customer service. He made sure guests were happy with their cocktails and he was impressive with the cocktails that he curated. • The servers who served with grace, style and a smile on their faces. Once they knew what you liked, they wanted to make sure you were fed well! They also offered to assist with anything and made sure they did so professionally. • The manager - She was just pure joy. She was extremely helpful, diligent and professional. It's clear that she takes pride in what she does. All the staff was personable and professional. I appreciated all their help and it made for a seamless experience. Lastly, you were invaluable. You were organized, detailed and handled all of our needs with ease and professionalism. You stepped in when needed and made sure that everything ran smoothly. Thank you for being by our side throughout the entire process! Dirty Habit is lucky to have you! It was a pleasure to host there and I hope that I can bring more clients back to your venue. Please extend my sincere appreciation to the team for a great job! Continued success!”

“I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for the wonderful experience we had at your establishment for my bridal shower brunch. The event was an incredible success, and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Your staff provided exceptional service, going above and beyond to ensure our needs were met. Their professionalism and attentiveness made the event truly enjoyable for all in attendance. Additionally, the food was absolutely delicious – my guests and I were thoroughly impressed with each dish. Furthermore, the event space itself was simply perfect. From start to finish, the event went seamlessly. I am grateful for all your assistance throughout the process, which allowed me to relax and fully appreciate the celebration with my loved ones. I will enthusiastically recommend your restaurant to others seeking a venue for their special events. Big thank you again to you and your team for exceptional service and for making this occasion truly memorable.”
