We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel van driver. What a find!! We went during Happy Hour (5-7pm) and were treated to wonderful food, great drinks and a very cordial welcome from Chloe & Casey at the bar. Both bartenders were friendly, patient & helpful with our food selections. Everything was at a reduced price but not reduced... More

Met friends there for dinner. Service was very good. Great wine list! I ordered the fish special which was ok, not fantastic. Friends ordered fresh scallops and the shrimp salad,which both were fantastic. Would I go again? Probably, but I would order something other than what I had.

This place is an absolute must. The food was incredible. I went here with my office for or Christmas dinner. Everything we ordered was amazing. For an appetizer we started with the fried oysters which came with an amazing dipping sauce. I also ordered a creamy potato soup, which was just as amazing. For my entrée I ordered rock fish....

For years, I have enjoyed and recommended the Black's group of restaurants, especially Black Salt in DC. In both of my visits to Black's Bar in Bethesda, however, expensive wines have been ruined by inadequately cleaned wine glasses--something I have never experienced in any other restaurant. In the first incident, the wine glasses had a strong soap smell and imparted... More

I dined there with a group of friends. Seems that it's rather the lunch place not dinner restaurant. They have a big variety of seafood, however most of us choose other meals, everybody was delighted but not astonished. Very good service - quick, nice and very attentive.

I have had a group dinner here twice. Both times, I was left feeling rather flat about the service and the food. The food is prepared well but is pricey, IMHO, given the many choices in Bethesda. The service misfires a bit. I had pre-ordered the wine and identified myself to the server and asked to taste the wine before... More

Normally this restaurant is one of my go-to places in Bethesda, but service was terrible last night. Our server, Carlos, seemed to have a very bad day. We had to pour our own wine, refill water glasses with sparkling water, which they ran out of at 8 p.m. Oysters were not explained, menus were not taken form table, table was... More

My daughter chose this to celebrate her 27th birthday and we had a delightful time and delicious food. They made the dinner special by printing 'Happy 27th birthday' at the top of our menus... We had a leisurely meal. I had the Carolina trout and others chose steak, oysters, scallops, pork chop. All were delicious!
