My husband and I ate dinner here during a trip to DC. The waiter was aloof. He forgot to bring my cocktail. Forgot the bread! Menu is on a large board taken from table to table. Food was good but not outstanding. Fish entree was...More

The venue is a slingshot property with a great bar area and banquette seating, so it's not your private, romantic setting (too close). BUT, the food is fabulous, authentic and delicious. Great seafood options, so there's something for everyone. Their specialty drinks were a bonus,...More
