This is my favorite restaurant in DC! It never disappoints. The staff are amazing, taking the time to explain every dish and drink. The wine pairing is a must!

The food and service is incredible. I would highly recommend doing the wine paring with the meal. We went on a Thursday and did not have to stand in line that long. I cannot wait to go back.

My friend brought me here, and when we got to the front door, I thought it was closed. No sign, down a few stairs, worn door. That plain exterior belies the food experience hiding behind it. We did the drink pairing, and I highly recommend...More

One person can stand in line to wait, but when the door opens you will all need to be there. If I’m not mistaken doors open at 5:30 for an immediate seating. Whoever doesn’t make the first cut goes on the next seating (I... More

I don't think they do. It's quite small and very crowded. More importantly their best experience is the set menu.
