Classy restaurant

Great atmosphere with live jazz. Good fine dining experience with attentive staff. Went for a business dinner and had the Filet Mignon. Surprisingly, they did not have sauteed mushrooms. A steak should have good mushrooms, but they don't even offer it. The mashed potatoes were smooth and... read more

Excellent choice for lunch. And dinner. One of the top places to lunch in Bethesda. Need reservations or expect to wait during lunch. The sandwiches are outstanding as are the burgers. I heard they grind the meat each morning for the burgers. Crab cakes and salads. Fresh ingredients prepared expertly. You're sure to find something that interests you and it... More

If you crave a well prepared meal and excellent service this is the place to go. The rib eye is served sizzling from the grill with just the right amount of marinade, the atlantic char is fresh and well prepared.Salads crisp and imaginative.Great selection of wine. Service attentive. Jazz band in eve sets the tone for casual but chic atmosphere.... More

I had a very well prepared meal here with a friend. It was a bit expensive for lunch and service was slow (we were certainly not rushed out). It is a comfortable place to eat and the booths are done in a way where you can have a conversation.

I am a huge fan. The club feel and subtle live music set the tone. Consistently delicious food and friendly expedient service bring it home. So consistent in fact, I have eaten hear scores of time and never had a single bad experience. Upscale casual at it's best. Must try- Spinach & Artichoke dip. Prime rib sandwich, Hawaiian steak, any... More

We ate here twice on our trip. Service was terrific, especially in that we didn't have reservations and they keep quite a few tables open for transients. Food was terrific.

This is the best place we have dined in Bethesda. The food is superb, the service is excellent and the ambience is wonderful. From the friendly parking lot attendant to the great chefs the whole place is first class. It is not inexpensive. I would not take children. This is great adult dining.

One of my favorite restaurants period. The service is 5 star and the food is even better. Small menu because they do everything well. Their thai steak salad, grilled chicken salad, and cobb salad are unmatched... They are extremely busy for lunch and dinner, making reservations is a smart idea.
