On Thanksgiving not much open it town so we went to the Max Hatter. I fully understand a reduced menu but we ordered fish and chips and the fish was Tilapia. It wasn't pleasant to eat. The service is OK. Will I come back here? Yes if it is the only restaurant open in town.

It is VERY rare that I ever undertip, but this place was deserving. Stopped in here on a Sunday night and the place wasn't busy other than patrons sitting at bar. My date and I found two seats and sat there for about 10 minutes. We were finally acknowledged by someone who said "Are you doing okay?" Well...we have no... More

Stopped in here during a short visit to DC because I was intrigued by the Alice in Wonderland reference. Loved the art - it was the best part of my experience. Service, even at the bar, was painfully slow. My steak & egg brunch burrito was remarkably average, although I did like the ranchero sauce and the home fries were... More

Went here because it looked better than Luna, but in the end not sure it was. From the street the Luna looked too much like a diner; but then the Mad Hatter looked like just a bar. In the end the Mad Hatter is a large bar with a separate dining room. We ate in the dining room, but certainly... More

Went in without reservations and were able to eat at the bar. Had brunch and bottomless champagne (bottomless mimosas are available) and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The restaurant is decorated with original Alice in Wonderland art - from the book - and is a very cool place to check out.

We were in town for my bachelorette weekend and my MOH brought us here because of my obsession with Alice in Wonderland. We were greeted and seated immediately when we enter. Our waiter as great, he came over talked through the brunch menu with us and got our mimosas started right away...$14 bottomless mimosas for 2 hours (definitely can't beat... More

Held the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding here in a private room (complete with a restroom). The fit was tight (30 people) but the choice and food were excellent; everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was quick and thorough. Thanks to Roberto & Freddie for a pleasant evening!

Dropped in for a mid Sunday afternoon lunch. The venue was as noisy as a rock concert due to a private party inside. The host seated us on the patio. The menu was primarily brunch items so we ordered the chicken and waffles. The quality was only fair. Maybe we were just unlucky but the several other diners near us... More

Reasonably friendly and upbeat place, but the food was average at best. I ordered the steak frite, which was fully1/3 fat, and the other 2/3 remarkably tough.

Stopped in here unexpectedly with a friend after a place we were planning to visit was closed. The entry was a little hard to find despite signage as it directed me toward a door that was actually the main dining room and not the door to the bar and where you asked to be seated. Lovely ambience. Wood paneled walls... More
