My wife and I went here the Tuesday before Thanksgiving for her birthday dinner. Originally, we had made a reservation at our old favorite, Virtue Feed and Grain, but ultimately changed it to The Majestic after finding Virtue's new menu a bit of a let down. Ironically, both restaurants are now part of the same ownership group after it appears... More

The ambiance is good. I ate lunch there today 11/19. I had a Cubano Sandwich. My server made the day with the outstanding service she provided.

Very nice dining experience in a group of approximately 18-20. We were seated at 2 side-by-side tables, toward the back, lots of traffic between the kitchen and front of the house that had to squeeze around our tables, but staff were all very professional and it wasn't a problem for our group. Food was all very good, everything from several... More

What a unique eatery-almost retro diner-like, but also with a formal twist. Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the cinnamon bun (excellent!) and two brunch items. We enjoyed the avocado toast, but especially the polenta with egg dish, which was awesome.

With so many food options in Old Town Alexandria, it had been several years since I'd dined at The Majestic. On my return visit in October 2016, I was excited to check out the new décor and menu. I was glad to see that the ambience remains warm, inviting and classic. My guest and I tried dishes on opposite ends of the... More

We wandered in without a reservation and were warmly welcomed. Endless iced tea accompanied our devilled eggs, pulled pork, and grilled vegetables. All of our dishes were tasty. We would have had dessert but were too full. The service (provided by Phyllis) was highly efficient as well as agreeable. We would definitely go back when we are in the area.

We are always searching out good brunch spots, and were pleased with our experience at the Majestic. Dinner there has never disappointed us. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food was quite good. Prices are a bit high for a basic breakfast plate, but that is to be expected in Old Town. We will go back!

I live in the neighborhood and have been pleased to see the number of upper-middle-tier restaurants that have opened in the last 20 years or so, of which The Majestic is very prominent due to its location on King Street. While the interior looks very nice after the recent renovation and the staff was also genial and professional, I can't... More

My husband and I visited The Majestic for the first time in quaint, old town Alexandria. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The meal, from starter to salad to main course, then dessert, was sensational. The pot roast and halibut were both amazing. The baked feta was a yummy starter and the mini deep fried apple tarts were... More

Our daughter found this restaurant for us and made the reservation. What an incredible experience. The service was attentive and well informed from the greeters to the waiter (thank you Kevin). We enjoyed everything that we ate and we will be going back again when we are in the DC area.
