If you like seafood!

Too much seafood on the menu for me. I am a non seafood eater and there were not many choices for me. Great scenery and waitstaff. Looked cleaned, friendly staff and great atmosphere.

This restaurant is absolutely a must if visiting National Harbor. Each time we went we were treated with the greatest service and delicious food. There are incredible deals during their happy hour, so if price is an issue, we would recommend that time. One eats in the very large bar area to enjoy happy hour deals. I got a hamburger... More

We always like to go there to have dinner or lunch. The food quality is good and fresh. I love their Mahi dish. It was hot that day, so we ate inside instead of the terrace. You can have the view of the river from inside too

Good quality fresh fish, well prepared and tasty. The parmesan-crusted flounder was delicious, but a little oily. Enjoyed the orzo and string beans that came along with the meal. We got the wrong drink order, but that was easily fixed. Service was spotty, but ok. Have been to a location in DC, where service was much more on point. Food... More

We were at the Harbor for a conference and wandered in for Dinner. We love the M&S in both Philly and Baltimore so we knew it was a safe choice. Upon walking in we were faced with the bar area and it was loud and rowdy (this was at 5:00 on a Friday). It wasn't a classy, just got done... More

There were plenty of empty tables when we arrived, and the place became busier. Perhaps the management wasn't prepared for the crowds. It took 20 minutes for our drinks tto arrive. Nothing complicated, beer and wine. Then the true wait began. We watched other people's food arrive. We asked the waiter, he said our food would arrive soon. 40 minutes... More

We were ready for an early dinner and went in without a reservation at 6:30pm. We were disappointed when the hostess told us that would be a 40 minute wait to get a table in the dining room. The entire left main dining area of the restaurant was completely vacant. It was a clear case of under staffing. We were... More

With our group we filled the back room. The service was really good even with our large group. Try the Chilean Sea Bass if you enjoy seafood.

My wife and I had a lovely lunch outside overlooking the National Harbor. The food was wonderful and Monet provided excellent service. The manager Barbara came by just to make sure we were being taken care of. Inside is exquisitely decorated.

We had an early dinner here, and loved it! The service was mostly good, although we didn't get bread ( :( ). We shared the "shrimp kisses" appy which were really unique and tasty. I ordered the salmon rigatoni - and HIGHLY recommend it! Another in our party greatly enjoyed the coconut shrimp appy as her dinner. Quiet dining room,... More
