Historic Atmosphere with Good Food

What a lovely combination of ambiance, great service and wonderful fresh and creative food. They accommodate gluten free and are child friendly without losing the fine dining attention to the meal.

The happy hours in Clarendon are pretty competitive and this one swings to the top as being one of the best. Owned by the same people who own Northside Social right across the street, so if you like them you'll like Liberty too. I got a burg to die for, cooked perfectly and then the wine selection is great too.... More

I had dinner here with a date. As usual the food was weird, in a bad way. There were no entree salads for my date and my gnocchi dish was bland and forgettable. Liberty keeps trying to be "edgy" or trendy with their food, but misses the mark in providing consistency or something that is even desirable. Also, as usual,... More

We reserved a table upstairs - downstairs is a fun, exciting place for a drink with friends, but loud for dinner date. The service was excellent, friendly and quick. We ordered a pomegranate salad, pesto noodles and scallop dish - all to share. The flavors were just what we were looking for - tasty and not too salty. The drink... More

Made a trek out to this place from MD suburbs based on a friend's recommendation, but came away underwhelmed. The good...the service...very attentive and pleasant :-) The bad...the burger was dry :-| The ugly...the salad was just downright ugly...limp and smothered in salad dressing :-(

We made a last minute reservation on a Friday night and the earliest spot open was at 9pm. We ordered a the wedge salad to start (crisp pancetta, scallions, tomatoes and blue cheese - $11.50). For our entrees we ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and the NY strip (bone marrow butter, roasted mushrooms, white cheddar grits, mustard greens - $24.95).... More

My wife and I had lunch at Liberty on a Friday - got there at 11:45 before the Noon crowd arrived. Got crowded by 12:30. Waiter (Anthony) was outstanding - food was very good. Only caution is that the salmon is cooked a bit on the raw side (some like it this way, we prefer throughly cooked). Appetizer and dessert... More

Love this place. Have been here for lunch, dinner and drinks; service is always quick, food is always delicious, drinks are always well made and they have a great selection of beers on tap. Does tend to be on the loud side if you eat downstairs, but they also offer outside and upstairs seating. I go here all the time... More

Had dinner here last weekend. Overall, the experience was just okay and from our perspective, the quality of the food has slipped a bit over the past couple of years. The service was quick and attentive which was appreciated given how busy the place was. The food was okay, not great. I had the surf and turf with grits and... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Saturday night. We made reservations for 7:30 p.m. and we were seated immediately; although it looked like there was still a couple of tables for walk-ins. We started with the the two house cheese, which were very nice. I had the night's special of ravioli stuffed with braised pork shoulder. My... More
