Perfect venue for our rehearsal dinner. Intimate space for ~25 people. Food was delicious - my vegetarian bridesmaid said it was the best vegetarian meal she had EVER had! Everything you would expect from a DC institution.

About

Let us make your wedding a weekend to remember. Be it an intimate rehearsal dinner or reception, bridal party or post-wedding brunch, or a grand, elegant reception; we realize that this special time happens only once and are committed to creating events that will bring many happy memories.

The Old Ebbitt Grill makes for an impressive and unique location for a Washington DC in-town or destination wedding. Steeped in political history, the property is located two blocks from the White House, has an incredible panoramic view from our Roof Terrace of Washington's most historic landmarks, and has been a natural gathering place for presidents and generals, lobbyists and theatregoers since 1856. Our Roof Terrace, our Atrium and our Cabinet Room are ideal for wedding celebrations, ranging from small and intimate to grand and stylish from 20 to 250 guests.

Our private party manager and our executive chef look forward to creating a menu with the freshest seasonal fare and providing personal attention to every detail of your wedding weekend events.

I absolutely loved working with Megan and Lucy for my wedding in the Old Ebbitt Grill Atrium! They were an absolute delight to work with from start to finish. They also were so attentive to guests the night of; they paid special attention to a guest who was taking cancer medication and might need extra assistance with not falling without being overbearing.

Although the roof wasn't open to guests, they allowed us to take bride and groom pics at sunset and again at night to take advantage of the Washington skyline, as we barely missed the deadline for when they closed the roof for the season.

It goes without saying that of course the food was amazing. We had several guests comment on how it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Out of towners loved getting to be in a historic DC venue and try the famous crab cakes.

I knew when I was getting married in DC that I only wanted my reception to be at Old Ebbitt as it has a special place in my family's heart. I am thrilled I got to have the DC wedding of my dreams, and they worked with me to carry out our vision. I was blown away when I first peeked into the room during the cocktail hour. We also had a farewell brunch at the Hamilton, and they brought the flowers over from the reception so we could use them at the brunch. What a great team! Thanks again to Old Ebbitt for such a beautiful, awesome, magical wedding reception!

We hosted our wedding Rehearsal dinner here in the Cabinet Room. It was lovely! The food was great (as it always is) and the bartenders and servers were superb! The cabinet room fit all 40 of us in the room comfortably. It was definitely a great place to host a dinner event!

Highly recommend for a rehearsal dinner. Service was amazing. Fast and friendly responses from the event team. Beautiful rooftop views. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. It was the perfect, intimate event with our wedding party. And then we had all of our close friends and out of town guests meet at the bar upstairs afterward.
