    Very Dog Friendly!

    We were in town on business and I wanted to go out for dinner with my canine kiddo. Found the Radiator through BringFido.com and thought we would give it a try. I am so very glad we did! They were very friendly and happy about my canine being my dinner date. She actually got her water before I did after we sat down!
    All the staff was very friendly with her, either commenting on how cute she is or how well behaved she is. This made my night (who doesn't love it when others love their puppers)? But more importantly, it made Goldie's night even better than just a walk. She loved the attention.
    On top of all this, their steak was AMAZING! It was also cooked to perfection! As someone who likes a true medium rare steak, I don't usually end up getting that. Usually when I go out they over cook it to at least medium, but most commonly it ends up being well done. It was wonderful. Their brussels sprouts were also fantastic! Highly recommended for the food, the environment, and the customer experience (canine and human)!

    The most dog friendly restaurant I have found in DC! (and DC is pretty dog friendly)

    The staff at Radiator are great with dogs and they have a wonderful patio with fans for those hot days (and heaters for the winter). Since they are part of a dog friendly hotel (formerly a Kimpton) they are great with dogs, typically bringing out water bowls and even sometimes treats for the dogs from the front desk. It's a great laid back place for drinks or light food with your dog! The only warning is that happy hour ~5-7pm on Weekdays can get crowded on the patio - other times it tends to be a very laid back place with lots of open space to enjoy a meal or drink with your dog. Note: the photo from BringFido is actually incorrect, it's of the hotel roof bar which is not dog friendly, instead to see the actual patio click on the button for the Radiator website which has a nice photo of the big off-street dog friendly patio.
