Our waiter was rushed with too many tables. The bar was full so it was hard to hear. For $26 I got a 4" x 4" piece of fish (baramundi) and some lightly dressed greens. That's it. Tables are very close together so we even...More

Was here for lunch. Great food and the service was wonderful. No one was hovering over our table but were attentive. Drinks were strong and nicely made. Will be going back next time I'm in DC.

Stopped for dinner before a show. We had a quiet spot, although quiet is a relative term in this restsurant. The food was good, though, and we enjoyed the meal. And the pretzel bread is a great starter. Would like to try another time when...More

We went for dinner, was represented as an "American fare" place but was really not what I would have expected. Service was off, seemed like maybe our waiter had too many tables or was otherwise distracted. Food was just okay, and seemed like it was...More
