The food was ok. A bit expensive. I really liked the potatoes. I ordered Chesapeake Benedict and my eggs were way undercooked. The waitress asked me how well I wanted them done but the chef still did not cook them well. We also didn't get our drinks until after the food came. The manager that night was very accommodating and... More

My husband and I visited the Silver Spring restaurant to get a quick bite to eat. We got there about 40 minutes before close. Perhaps that had something to do with the quality of the food. I ordered the veggie burger and fries and my husband a BLT and fries. This should have been a simple, quick meal with little... More

Food great, but spendier than it should be. Service abysmal. Not that they're not trying but they're way understaffed. Don't expect anyone to check on you, or refill your coffee. And you'll sit forever waiting for a check... to the point that you even contemplate leaving without paying. (And in case you're wondering... yes we paid.) Their signature smoothies all... More

The service was very good. Our waitress should have been working at a swankier restaurant! We had mimosa's and grapefruit juice with salad and muffins. It was tasty, perhaps on another visit we will wade deeper into the menu, especially the 'happy hour menu'. This was my second visit, her 7th. It has a nice downtown location with plenty of... More

Ordered the short stack with fruit, amazing amount of banana, blueberries, and strawberries, amazing for the price. Easy thing to say, GO and enjoy!

I have been frequenting Eggspectation since the Silver Spring location opened. It is great place for good food when you are not sure if want a meal, burger or breakfast. A lot of interesting menu choices with a play on their name. I have never had a bad meal there and there service is very good. The atmosphere is friendly,... More

After trying the location in Chantilly, I just had to take my parents to this location. Food was good, but this location does have an outside seating area. Plus we ate here during Blues Festival. So it had a view with live music.

I was introduced to this restaurant by a friend years ago and recently rediscovered it. The food is great! Everything is well cooked, well seasoned… down to the fruit drinks. They have a wonderful variety of food items (breakfast, not just eggs). I have found the service to be wonderful and wait staff attentive to your needs. I especially love... More

They have a wonderful menu, lovely ambiance, but their service is poor and mistakes are frequent. The wine order was wrong and had to be corrected. They brought the wrong dinner and had to bring the right one...arriving quite a bit later than my companions' meals. The manager came over to apologize. Since he acknowledged the problems we thought he... More

Excellent service, and delicious food. Count on their team for corporate delivery needs: off site food and beverages
