Sitting by the window of this restaurant gives you a great view of the Potomac. The ambiance is appealing and the food is also good. It is a great place for a drink and an appetizer or dinner with a date.

The pasta, lobster, shrimp and white sauce could not make a better combo. Very much recommended. The ambiance was really vibrant and fun with everyone talking loud and enjoying their drinks while...

We were off to a good start when our server "Ozzie" (possibly, Azzi - no name tags) took our drink order promptly. Upon his return with the alcohol he asked if we had questions regarding the menu. My girlfriend explained her garlic allergy particularly regarding... More

Business dinner - why do we always order a seafood tower? Impressive to look at - hard to eat. Food was great, service pleasant in a beautiful space.
