Nicest place to eat on the waterfront....

A bit pricey but you're paying for the waterside dining. The food the four of us had was all better than average.

I was one of a group of 12 that went to the restaurant. I had been there before but it had been 7 years ago. I knew to expect great food but it has gotten better. Everything on the menu you might want and what a great salad bar. Wide selection of wine and other beverages. The view of the... More

This place is a bit over-rated for the price . To sit outside you have to go inside first to see the hostess which is a bit tedious. One glass of wine wasn't chilled enough and spinach salad had too much dressing on it. However, on a sunny day, it is very pleasant to sit outside. Service was fine.

This is a mid-priced restaurant located right on the Potomac in 'Alexandria. There is garage about a block away, so easy parking. The food is very good, but not haut cuisine. I had a really delicious clam chowder and Caesar salad. The service is friendly and good. /We have been there previously with a large family and enjoyed it then,... More

First, you can't beat the location. Right on the Potomoc R. Great decor. The food was very good but it was also extremely pricey. One could eat as well at other nearby locations for half the cost, but you are paying for the ambiance and truly excellent service. I had salmon with a couple of sides and hot tea and... More

We had a wonderful table with a view of the docks and Potomac while enjoying a fantastic meal during our visit in Old Town Alexandria. We had prime rib and while a bit over done for ordering med. rare to our personal tastes, it was very good and well presented. The meals are priced accordingly as one may expect for... More

My husband made a reservation in January for our anniversary dinner in the end of March requesting a window table. Well, we came and we got a table in the middle of the room (it's not even close to be a window table). We were a bit upset (reservation was made 2 months ahead!!!!!) but we saw "Happy Anniversary" on... More

We had a semiprivate space with dedicated wait staff. We preordered appetizers and drinks to be ready when we arrived. Dinner was very good and service was excellent Wait time for main courses to be served was minimal and the party had a very good time. The view is excellent as is the general location. It is worth it!
