My husband & I stayed at the Hilton recently for 3 days and on this date we had been out sightseeing all the monuments in DC and had "literally walked our legs off!" We just went into the Finn and Porter to enjoy a comfortable seat and have a drink. Well, we were having such a wonderful time that one... More

For dinner the servers recommendations were spot on. She went and got us a pamphlet for downtown she thought it would be nice for us to visit. At Breakfast, the server actually gave us coffee to go.

Had dinner at Finn and Porter during my stay at the Hilton. Decided to try the Sushi as the reviews were very positive and it lived up to the reviews. The sushi was excellent fresh and yummy. I didn't have anything else on the menu, but would def recommend the sushi.

We enjoyed eating at this restaurant several times during our trip. While it is a little pricey it was always hot and tasted excellent. We were not disappointed in anyway with their quality.

We ate there two nights in a row. The food was delicious. It was not overpriced the way hotel restaurants can often be and there were all different price points depending on your mood and pocket. Service was a little slow but we often have to remember to slow down when we are outside of NY!

My company sends me here when we take candidates to lunch. They pay. I get my money's worth. I don't recall food I'd rate better than 3. Today's Virginia Ham panini was just horseradish. The meat in the burgers is second-rate. The salads are unexciting. The fries are ordinary. On the plus side, the atmosphere is fine for conversation. The... More

My wife and I attended a weekend dance event at the Hilton Mark Center where this restaurant is located. At first, we considered going out to a local restaurant but after dancing all day the first day we decided to stay in the hotel and eat at Finn And Porter and we are really glad we did. Although everything on... More

I've stayed at Hilton Mark Center quite a few times, so have had mostly everything on the menu. The breakfast is typical buffet with some fruit, scrambled eggs, good bacon, and sometimes biscuits & gravy. Lunch is a buffet. I don't particularly like their cheeseburger, but others I've talked to have enjoyed it. The sushi at dinner is good.

An excellent breakfast and amazing dinning options. The continental breakfast is has several fresh fruits, in addition to the 3 hot food options, and large variety of breads. Dinning is also good! Their pasta is quite good indeed and if you are a beer lover you should try their gingered beer.

Great Place - Friendly ambiance. Like the happy hour - bartenders are great - and friendly. I would go there more often if I had the time.
