Incredible Restaurant!!! This place is not to be missed. Chef Rodney Scruggs provides exquisite cuisine at very reasonable prices. Go, you won't be disappointed.

Beautiful decor, Perfectly situated to our hotel (JWM), Traditional dishes with a unique spin. It was tasty and we would go back again. The complimentary fresh baked corn bread and hot shot of soup were a delicious bonus.

Had a terrific dinner at the Grill on Friday with my family. The soft shell crab appetizers were excellent (although a little on the small side), and the rest of the entree's were excellent also (Haddock, Salmon and the steak speacial). Excellent service and overall an excellent experience. Well done.

Ate at this restaurant twice while in DC. Once outside and once inside with a group of 7.
The service was not good and since we were over 6 people a 20% gratuity was added to the bill. The prices were very high for the service received. Lovely atmosphere, location and size, but not sure where the management is.
Wine list was quite nice. Good selection on the menu, but my fish dish, while very tasty, was room temperature. The bus boy stacked the dishes so high while removing them that he splashed food in about 6 areas on the back of my white jacket.
I still gave the restaurant a rating of 4 because the food is good. Being in the same building as the Willard Hotel, one would assume the standard of service would be higher.

As we were staying in the Willard Intercontinental, two dinners in this restaurant. At the first we ate a table. Nothing really good or really terrible happened. However, the service was decidedly lackadaisical. Our waiter took the order and brought the food. We poured our own wine.

At the second, we ate at the bar. Far better service. However, the food was not exceptional for its cost.

There are better alternatives in the area (see my review of Lafayette at the Hays/Adams Hotel)
