Bread was great, rest of food, so-so, Over priced (like most hotel restaurants). If I had the energy I would have left hotel to eat, but like most travelers, first night in town I was too tired to do so.

Finn and Porter is THE restaurant in the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center. There are not many restaurants nearby, and the traffic is awful -- so we were glad to discover the Finn and Porter was actually a very nice restaurant.

Service was slow each time we dined, but quality was very good, as was the price. Extended hours was very nice as well.

The food was very good, but the service was slow - and this was later at night, there were only about 10 people in the restaurant. The manager came over to help me select a gluten free meal - he seemed very knowledgeable about it, so I felt safe. However, I did still get sick, so there must have been... More

I am sure this place gets lost off people's radar- because it's attached in the hilton Alexandria. Have always had great food and beverages there. Wine list is great. Kim at the bar was great. If you like sushi- the sushi chef has been there for ten years. There are tv's there for big sporting events like the triple crown.... More

Had the breakfast buffet two days in a row. There were the normal buffett items and you could order omlets. My omlet was good. The service was good with no unexpected delays.

The manager and staff created a dinning experience that was very pleasing. The food is good and the beer selection is better than most hotel bars.
