Rated 4 out of 5 by First time trying Ethiopian. Interesting cultural experience. The food was also interesting - definitely an acquired taste. Jan 22, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by We love Meskerem for their delicious food, which really should be the main reason to go to any restaurant, and have been there several times over the years (we're from out of town and it is a special trip for us). However we were a bit disappointed with this visit. The menu had changed and we ordered the platter to share but they no longer allow you to choose the options - they select the assortment for you which does not include much variety. Also, we had 3 people in our party and the quantity of each serving on our shared platter was barely enough to split between two people, yet alone 3 so we thought they were rather skimpy compared with the past and other Ethiopian places we frequent. The service was so-so. We may go again, but then again maybe not if this is the direction they are heading. Sad... Jan 5, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Food is excellent. Service is not very friendly but the food is amazing and service is fast. So, I would give them a 5 for great food and fast but not friendly service. I'm willing to lose friendliness for speed and quality. Oct 21, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by This is definitely an experience eating with your hands (no utensils) and having their traditional spongy bread and tasty food! It is located in the vibrant, eclectic area of Adams Morgan. Aug 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Meskerem has amazing food. The quality and taste are superb. Of the 4 of us, it was 2 of the peoples' first time and they absolutely loved it. We ordered the combo special for 4 people and a bottle of wine and it was just the right amount of food at the right price. Can't wait to come back! Jul 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The food is delicious, and the variety of spices in the dishes was a total delight! Service was cordial, attentive, and very informative when we had questions about Ethiopian cuisine and culture. Our 2 kids loved the experience of dining upstairs! Jul 7, 2014
