We stopped here for lunch. Great menu - plenty of variety on the menu. Helpful and friendly staff. Great location close to the White House. Plenty of seating inside & out. I will return next time I’m in DC. Close to the National Monument.

Just here with me son for snacks and cocktails. I tried the Senator cocktail; a delicious, tight drink that is not overly sweet.
We had a lovely street side table with an awesome view of the park and people walking by.

By far the best part of my experience at the Occidental Grill was our sweet server Iman. Service can make or break a meal, and Iman took such good care of my son and I. She was so warm and kind; she accommodated our needs as vegetarians.
Super place, super service! Thanks Iman!

This restaurant is part of the Willard Hotel area. We ate outside. The location of the tour buses near our table was a distraction. The food was mostly bland, the service was sub-par and the price was high. The only good thing was the rain had stopped and we were able to sit outside finally.

Found this place last minute and very happy we did. My wife had the Mixed Salad topped with tuna and the tuna was cooked to perfection with amazing flavor. I had the Steak & Eggs - outstanding filet and the duck eggs were perfectly poached. The Blue Corn Grits are a must, best grits I've ever tasted!
Ambiance is nice with photos and portraits of DC's "important folks" and others adorning the walls. Service was spectacular without being obtrusive. Mo, our server, had great tips and suggestions for the newcomer.
Will definitely visit again soon.
