“Very good sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

My husband and I really liked the Sushi in this restaurant! The environment is lovely, prices are standard and the employees were efficient. It's a must go if you like Sushi. We hope you enjoy it! God bless.

“Slow Slow Slow”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We sat down for dinner at 8:30 and did not get out main course until 10:30.
The food was great once it arrived.

“Make Over needed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Wild mushroom fritatta was made up with dried mushrooms. Awful! Filet mignon was some other cut of meat, not filet. Bernaise sauce needs vinegar, tarragon, and other spices. It was awful. No taste. Parmesan polenta had absolutely no flavor.
You're captive in this hotel and restaurant. Nothing in the vicinity to choose from. The servers are not customer oriented. The have a disinterested demeanor and far away look like, "this is just a job". Right. And we who patronize this place expect service, not duty.

“Great food for dinner and breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Surprising that an excellent restaurant can be found in a hotel, but I have eaten at Finn and Porters for dinner and breakfast and had excellent meals. For dinner, they have an excellent salad and a sushi bar which is also great. For breakfast they have the "design your own omellett" which you can choose your ingredients. All in all, it is a fine dining experience and very convenient if you are staying in the Hilton Alexandria.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Steak, Seafood, and Sushi place at the Hilton. I had dinner here (a half-chicken) which was delicious! Ordered a hearts of romaine lettuce salad, and they literally served a head of romaine on its side with the dressing on top which was interesting. Dessert was also fantastic - I had a flourless chocolate cake with ice cream.

Only reason I'm not giving it an "Excellent" is because my server seemed to disappear for a while near the end of my meal. But overall, I would come back here again.
