Went to Chi Cha Lounge for Valentines dinner and hookah. It was a last minute decision, but turned out to very good. I'm no avid hookah smoker(2nd time), so this review is loosely based on the actual hookah smoking, and more so on the service and experience.

Shisha and Latin? The shisha was not very good, wrong coals?. The server did not ask what kind of tequila my friends wanted for their margaritas... so he went with premium tequila. Really? Below average service and completely overpriced for this establishment. There are so many places to go in DC... why come here?

Ok so lets start with the host. I didn't catch her name, but she was very unpleasant upon arrival. If you don't like greeting people then you probably shouldn't be in that kind of work.

Relaxing, and when I went it was not crowded but I've heard recent grumblings that it's turned very loud and obnoxious. But I like the food and the hookahs.

The food's surprisingly good, but not why you come to this lounge -- have a hookah and a mojito and chill...

Chill atmosphere, good tapas (especially that cheesy potato thing), good sangria (unusual taste with a kick of cinnamon)
