3 reviews of Rep theatre cafe bar in English
So, there it is. Small menu, some shabbiness around the edges, and an occasionally chippy, unwelcoming staff. Maybe they're just having an "off" period, I dunno. What I will say is that when I've seen this sort of behaviour in other restaurants in the area, a change of owners (or closure) was almost always imminent. And that would be a shame, because I've had some nice times at the Rep Cafe. But until they start punching their weight again, I'll be taking my business to the buzzier, slicker DCA.
Have mixed feelings about this place.
While all the food Ive had from here is tasty, the staff can be a bit off putting.
For example, depending on where you are sat, they kind of tend to stare at you from the bar area, whispering at each other while looking at you, which yeah sounds mega paranoid but it really really puts me off!
They also tend to contradict themselves. We were given a restricted menu instead of the usual menu over the Christmas period. Fair enough. However, upon trying to order something off said restricted menu, we were told we couldnt have it, restricted menu contents only, we dont have that....Eeeerrrrr thats where we're reading it from dude.
Was very bizarre.
If you can put up with abruptness and starey staff, go for it. The food is pretty nice.
Although this is the Local Repratory Theatre, It has a fantastic Restaurant and gallery bar. Although the food is not nouvelle cuisine it is all freshly cooked and very reasonabley priced. The food is actually pretty good and the menu is varied. Drink prices, including the bottles of wine are also reasonable. The upstairs bar overlooks the main restaurant and is not as busy (apart from show nights) as it should be. Well worth a visit for couples, friends, family or a simple night out. Love it.
