An untrained staff with collective ADD committed more errors in the course of a single meal than one normally experienced in a year of dining out. It is hard to enjoy the creative concepts of the chef when a meal is executed poorly and served haphazardly. I hope they get their act together as this place could be far far... More

We were in Alexandria for a day trip from Baltimore and wanted to try Brabo after reading the positive reviews. Service was efficient and the food was very good with just a few negatives. We were given corn bread and whipped honey butter that was great. I had the Five Onion Soup and thought it had excellent flavor, but it... More

If you are familiar with Alexandria, you know about Brabo's Restaurant. The food is out of this world. But then again, so are the prices. Now you can try the food, in an informal atmosphere, at prices we can all afford. The Tasting Room is next door and the menu is somewhat limited. But you will find plenty of wonderful... More

Great food and great wine list. If you'd like to go to Brabo, but don't want to take out a new mortgage, Tasting Room is just as good (and more accessible).

It was a quaint and quiet location when we visited... sitting at the bar, my wife ordered a Pinot Grigio that she liked. I tried their Brouwerij de Musketiers Antigoo, a Belgian Double Blonde Ale. It was very good.

My colleague brought me here two nights in a row. The first night we shared a prosciutto tart, bibb lettuce salad, and thai curry mussels. The second night we shared a pork belly tart, endive and apple salad, chorizo musels, and a charcuterie. All of it was s delicious. The salads were fresh, crisp, with a great combination of flavors.... More

had a nice dinner here on Sunday night. great wine selection. We chose to split 3 items, Salmon tartar with potato chips, classic mussels, and a bibb salad with beets. Each dish was wonderfully prepared and delicious! They split our salad for us so we didn't have to awkwardly do it ourselves and the pace and casual ambience made for... More

Easy to get to from the metro. Food is fresh and different. Staff are friendly. This is a newer restaurant in the area. Its a trendy place to take people.

I have stayed at the attached hotel a few times, and LOVE the mussels from the Tasting Room. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. The onion soup is a classic, and the other items i have tried have always been excellent. The room is small, but great service and great food!
