“Contemporary and chic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This place is not as conspicuous as other places on M Street, but I'd say it's one of the best food in town, especially for value! (I try to rate satisfaction taking value into consideration.) The server was very friendly and helpful in suggesting popular dishes. For main dishes, we had the lamb shank, pork loin, and the famous tagliatelle. I thought pork smelled funny, but the rest of us at the table seemed to find it savory.. All others including desserts -- orange cake and pumpkin panna cotta -- were fine. Another thing to note is: Interior is dimly lit but romantic. Bring a date to impress:)

“Outrageously delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

If I could give Unum 6 stars I would do so in a heartbeat. Ate here Friday night during restaurant week with my wife and son. Everything was delicious and the service exemplary. Fun atmosphere. High quality, locally sourced ingredients were evident in every dish. Can't wait to go back.

“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Great from beginning through end. Had meat appetizer and it came with very interesting toppings or additions. One of us had the sea bass (thats what they said it was, though description on menu had another odd name that i was not familiar with). It was really great and came with this tureen of pureed parmesan and artichoke which was amazing. My crab cake was great as was another person's burger. Service was outstanding. Would definitely go again anytime.

“Oasis on M street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Imitate, family owned, very high quality food that is well thought out, and reasonable. A good choice for both a visit to the bar with friends or a great menu to share with a date. The dining room holds about 45 people. there are no bad seats.
