Went in for a quick dinner at the bar after a very long day, and enjoyed a very nice meal. Nice wine and cocktail selection, seasonal menu. I chose the Heirloom Tomato Salad with fresh Burrata, which was delicious, and very large. The Black Bass...More

Quite an elegant venue that has both high tables and low couches to enjoy some cocktails or wine. There's complimentary nuts and olives which add a perfect touch. The rest of the food are perhaps above average. We had bison sliders and salmon tartare for...More

With cocktails averaging about $20 it's a bit pricey. However, for entertaining a client or just meeting a friend for a couple drinks the ambiance makes up for it. The live piano sets a mood that makes you feel a thousand miles from DC.

Relaxed atmosphere. Excellent food. Good service. Live piano. What else do you expect for an averaged priced restaurant. The New York strip was particularly done to what I wanted.

There are elevators in the hotel to the 1st floor where the bar is located. If you enter the hotel through the main doors (16th Street), you will have to go up a few steps (maybe like 4-5) to get to the actual bar and... More
