Enjoy an Upscale Happy Hour and Dinner at Fyve Restaurant Lounge

Because of its affiliation with the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Pentagon City, it’s no surprise that Fyve Restaurant Lounge offers top-class service in a tasteful and refined atmosphere. Indeed, if the Yelp reviews are any indication, Fyve has those qualities in spades, with a beautifully appointed dining room, lively bar area, and well-regarded staff.

The restaurant is the brainchild of executive chef Sriram Hariharan and chef Jordan Whitney, who have filled the menu with innovative, seasonal dishes that draw on American culinary traditions. Reviewers heap praise on dishes like the New York strip steak served with crispy fried okra and peppery black-eyed peas on the side, or lobster ravioli with peas, micro-greens, and cherry tomatoes. Fyve is generally a special-occasion restaurant, but you should also know that this place hosts a very affordable happy hour every weekday, where you’ll be able to enjoy $5 specials on food and drinks from 4-6 p.m.
