This place is an institution in Foggy Bottom so I'm surprised to be the first one reviewing it. We go to the Magic Gourd fairly regularly and the food is consistently good. Portion sizes are generous and the drinks are too. Part of the appeal is the cheers bar like atmosphere where the wait staff are friendly and remember what you like to eat and drink. The pan fried dumplings are a favorite as an appetizer and you can't go wrong with any of the entrees. Wasn't a huge fan of the dan dan noodles - way too much skippy p-nut butter taste but everything else has been very good. Prices reasonable too. Lots of State Dept and WHO workers hang in the bar area but no problem with that - adds to the fun of the place. Other times it can be very quiet.

She is a friend that you can confide in with all of your problems, she always gives good advice. also the prices are always very reasonable every time i go there. i have the read other reviews and i disagree with guest g. eliana is wonderful and trustworthy. i have been there so many times and i never had any problems with her or anyone else in the salon. go and see her you will not regret it!!

Having lived in Naples, Italy for 3 years I can honestly tell you that the pizza here is as close to Neapolitan style pizza as I have found. The appetizers they have out are all safe to be out... Bean salads, specialty cheese, sardines, cured meats... The list goes on and on. They have many apps in the cold fridge behind the bar that they pull out when ordered. In fact there have been a many a time that the wife and i have gone and had 3-4 apps and not even had pizza! We count ourselves lucky to live only a few blocks away because the beer and wine selection is staggerrific
