“Still A Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful restaurant continues to have great food in a friendly welcoming atmosphere although it is quite dark. High booths allow dining without hearing all of neighboring tables' conversations. Live jazz is such a treat and a draw. Expect to have interesting conversation if eating at bar. Ribs and special veggie burger are scrumptious. A favorite restaurant after many years

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Great place to eat in Bethesda! They have their own parking lot right next door-free parking! It is a little pricey ($20 for their famous French Dip sandwich), but everything we had was delicious. This restaurant is part of the Hillstone group. We ate at a sister restaurant in San Francisco. Both places had great food, service and ambience. This place was just right for our anniversary dinner. I would go back again any time!

“Dinner Meeting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I was invited with a couple of business associate to meet with our Chairman. We had a reservations at 5pm and almost everyone arrived on time. Since it was a new experience for most of us, our host ordered 5 appetizers The Thai Noodles, Fried Oysters, House Smoke Salmon, Spinach and Artichoke Dip and Fries. While enjoying the Appetizers we went on with business. The waiter was very attentive and made sure we have everything we needed. Our main course was the famous Hawaiian Rib-Eye. Of course, everyone ordered it to be prepared differently. I unfortunately had to say Medium which meant Medium well. Never order it Medium because although the meat was tender it tasted burnt. But overall i would say the experience was good and will go back and try other dishes.

“Nice light fare, Great price & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

We were visiting Washington and our friends took us to Woodmont Grill. We arrived at noon on Thursday but only had to wait 10 minutes for a booth.

The prices were pretty reasonable for the DC area considering the quality of the food. I ordered the Thai noodle salad salad with crispy chicken and a side order of tabbouleh. The others had a regular crispy chicken salad and sandwiches.

The service was friendly and quick and the place was very clean. I was impressed with the place and would recommend it without reservation.

“Tough to get seated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

They are quite inflexible with bar seating and it seems I always wait a LONG period of time to get seated. Food prices are high for what you get as they've recently changed up the menu to justify the price increase. It's close to the office so a go-to for business lunches as an option to Black's across the street.
