We were coming through town on our way to Bermuda, and found this GEM near the Marriott at Falls Church. In a strip mall near the old Merrifield Garden center, it is American fusion cuisine. I had the scallops, but the salads were great and my husband had steak. Fabulous food, great drinks..wonderful ambience, not outrageously priced. Don’t miss this neighborhood treasure!!!

I have been to this restaurant several times. I really like the atmosphere and the wine collection. I recommend the Joel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon if you like red wine. However, I am disappointed to say that my last visit was far from impressive. One of the things I enjoy most about the restaurant is the selection of delicious specials.

On this Saturday in honor of Mother’s Day, there were no specials which was extremely disappointing since this is one of the reasons my mom wanted to come to this restaurant. Furthermore, the recipe for my favorite dish, the Housemade Burrata was drastically changed. Now it comes drenched in pesto sauce which becomes the only thing you taste in the dish period. It is extremely salty and not enjoyable at all. I hope they go back to the previous recipe. The Tuna Tartare Nachos were different as well. Previously they were served as a few pieces of chips with the delicious incredients, now it’s a pile of chips with all the ingredients on top at random. This makes quite a difference on the taste as you have to work hard to balance all the ingredients on the chips yourself. The nachos were delicious but only if all of the ingredients are on there. We also got the Pan Roasted Rockfish which was ok and a bit boring and Bison Strip Steak as the entrees. The bison was pretty good actually. I would say the highlight of the meal was the bison and the overall quality of service, however I hope the quality of the menu goes back up.

Started with a drink at the bar...the best Manhattan ever! We also tried the meatball appetizer which was very tasty. Moved to our reserved table for dinner. My spouse had the short ribs which were fork tender and very good. I had the scallops. I must say they were not the best scallops I have ever had. There were three scallops and they were pretty sandy. I didn't want to complain at dinner because my husband had planned this special dinner and I didn't want to hurt his feelings. I just would not get scallops here again.

Went on a Saturday evening for dinner with another couple. Couldn't even turn into the parking lot because of the gridlock, part of which is caused by the awkward configuration of the inadequate parking lot. Valet service was not helping since it was unreachable. I always mark down restaurants when the noise level is so bad that conversation is virtually impossible. On the positive side, the signature cocktails were outstanding as were the bread and the eggplant and tuna entrees. On the pricey side but not outrageous.
