Paper Moon definitely did not disappointed me. Prices were reasonable, wine was very good, server was knowledgeable, discreet, helpful and polite, and the food was absolutely wonderful. Having been to Italy twice and looking forward to a third time we're always skeptical when a restaurant advertises as authentic Italian but it was apparent from the beginning the Chef takes his Italian food very seriously. I had the $8 calamari for an appetizer which was heaped up on a plate and mixed in with fresh peeled tomatoes, olives, and I believe red pepper, a presentation I had not had before (it usually comes with some sort of icky sticky sauce) and it was wonderful, perfectly tender yet light and fresh tasting. wife had the salmon carpaccio which was recommended by the manager which too was excellent. For dinner I had the lobster ravioli which was al dente as pasta should be, rich yet not heavy. But the wife hit the jackpot with the Osso bucco . It was just flat out delicious.

My spouse and I took the kids for dinner to Paper Moon. We were very pleased. The host checked our reservation and took us straight to a nice quite table fit for our young kids. The dishes suggested by the waiter (Ben) such as, my Lobster Fra Diavlo was delicious, I had no problem with my kids as they were able to order from a variety of pasta they have on their menu. Even my husband, who is difficult to satisfy, enjoyed the fish entree suggested by our waiter, as a seafood choice. Overall, the greeting, atmosphere and treatment, and the price considering it was dinner time, exceeded our expectation. If you are to go out for an Italian romantic or family dinner, do not miss some of the best of Washington DC restaurant such as Paper Moon.
I ordered the arugula salad which was supposed to come with dried cranberries which didn't, but the waitress was quick to apologize and informed me that they were out. I' m a bit picky, i chose the arugula salad because of the cranberries so the waitress changed the appetizer for me with no problems what so ever. I ended up getting their salmon Carpacio which I really enjoyed and thought it's a better choice to have some protein added up!! My friend started with the mushroom caps, unbelievably delicious!, it's basically jumbo Portobello mushrooms stuffed with perfectly seasoned crab meat, so good! While we were done with the appetizers, our entrees arrived right away.
In my opinion, Papermoon has the best Italian food in all of DC! The food is real, authentic, and delicious Italian cuisine. The service is always great and welcoming. I always start off the Insalata Di Endivia, a Belgian endive salad with toasted walnuts and gorgonzola chesse in a raspberry dressing. If I'm extra hungry, I'll order the mushroom caps or fried calamari as an appetizer. For the main course, I usually always order one of their exquisite veal dishes. The veal sorrento, veal with mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes in a brandy cream sauce, is absolutely to die for
I was really surprised to discover that the food was awesome and the service welcoming and attentive! A nice and polite Maitre Dee offered a small table by the window. Next to it I recognized "the middle-age Italian sweet" waiter described in the negative review that motivated my choice. I declined the offer and pointed to another table in the back hoping for a different server. Despite a hesitating look and his Hispanic accent, my waiter was perfectly able to sell me a $45 prix fixed menu that includes a free glass of wine implementing the 4th course.
We have eaten at Paper Moon many times over the past two years when we have been visiting our sons at GWU and each time it has been terrific. As they have gotten to know our name (we always make a reservation) their attentiveness improved, however, service was good prior to that. They aim to please and I'm sure that as long as you are polite they will promptly handle any issue to your satisfaction.
I bought a groupon months ago, and finally went to brunch this afternoon. Everything was lovely! The drinks were great, the food was tasty, the staff was very nice, and that area of Georgetown is so fun to explore! I definitely recommend going for brunch. The restaurant is gorgeous inside and I have absolutely nothing negative to report about my experience. It's even good for people watching!
I went to this restaurant for a wedding rehearsal party. I thought the food was delicious and the service was excellent. I got the lamb chops and they were some of the best I had. My wife got the spaghetti and meatballs and they tasted fabulous. We had 20 people in our group and they all left very satisfied. The price for the food is very reasonable too. I will be going back very soon
So much room to spread out and have a good time, djs play more than just the latest hip hop and techno, but also international and latin. Very fun crowd, you could be in a dress or in jeans, everyone is just there to have a good time. Plenty of places to sit and talk if you get tired of the dance floor, and the bar is always stocked well, manger is very friendly and accomodating.
I really didn't know what to expect on my first visit. I was not from the area and I honestly was disappointed from the outside when I got there because I didn't realize the restaurant was in the basement but as soon as I opened the door I was never disappointed. They decorated the whole place for Halloween and I found out they do that for other major holidays as well.
