The location is perfect, by Potomac, near water, by AMC theater, great layout etc. But when it comes to service it's another story. I stopped by with a couple of friends to have some beer. They served us pretty lazily, at the end when I asked for a glass of water the server never showed up! I found what was... More

I've been to Maté a few times, either for Happy Hour drinks or for dinner. Each time I've had a pretty solid experience. Maté feels more like a lounge or club than anything, with a sleek bar, modern chandeliers and contemporary chairs. For dinner, it's a solid place for sushi. It's probably not the most traditional sushi, but it's good... More

This is a nice place to go to on your trip for a special night out. Georgetown is already a nice area and so this will provide a nice touch. Sushi is good here too. Def ask the server for the recommended dishes. If you're going to get an appetizer, get one that's legit and actually has effort made into... More

I went there for my birthday, with a group of friends. The staff were really helpful, and didn't seem to mind finding us a bigger table when more people turned up that we had made reservations for. The food was great, and the waitress was super-helpful explaining what some of the sushi was. It is a really cool restaurant, and... More
