Great service and very good food

Nice quiet atmosphere, helpful staff, good food. Overall, a little pricey, but that is to be expected in a hotel restaurant for the convenience.

I enjoyed buffet breakfast and lunch in the hotel restaurant - VERY good and ample offerings. Dinner provides wonderful surf and turf entrees - a must visit if you're in the West Alexandria area.

The buffet breakfast is a great start to kick your day off. It has all the normal breakfast items you'd expect. I've eaten here over a five -day period and the breakfast has been good each of those days. I've also had drinks in the evening. All the wait staff are prompt and courteous. The drinks are a little pricey... More

Filet Mignon Cubes of Steak (four) was boiled rather than broiled - NO TASTE - what a waste of money for $ 20.00. Service was great - waiter very friendly

I've eaten here dozens of times. No need to leave the Hilton at Mark Center to look for another restaurant. Jay and Jason are two of the finest sushi chefs I've found anywhere. Always consistent and delicious. Try the Japanese Lasagna and the Tempura Shrimp with Spicy Tuna roll. Fabulous! Cordell, Basher and Dee are always great behind the bar.... More

Have the Japanese Lasagna!!! A great place to meet or sit alone and work. Although the staff is a joy to chat with so if you need some company you can find it here! Wonderful healthy dishes and lots to indulge in. Bar menu could use a few more options but only an issue if you are staying the whole... More

We had the executive lunch buffet and it offered such good value! There were good food choices but not overwhelming. Great service

I was wonderfully surprised at the quality and selection for being in a Hotel, but the service by Bashir (sp?) and Kim was outstanding! They helped make our first trip to DC wonderful! We take two trips a year for the last 30 years and I would return to this Restaurant even if I was not staying at the Hilton!

I had two meals here, dinner that I ordered to go (to enjoy in my room) and breakfast the morning of my departure. For dinner I ordered two sushi rolls, which thinking about them now is making me hungry. I enjoyed a spicy tuna roll and a California roll, both which were delicious and made right. For breakfast I had... More
