“Decent food - very overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I'm having a hard time understanding some of the other reviews. While we enjoyed the food, we felt like the restaurant was charging a very high premium to people who didn't want to travel into DC (or even Bethesda) where they could get far better food for the same price (or the same quality food for much cheaper). If price is no object, but you are very averse to traveling and live nearby, then this is a great place. The food is quite good and there are some interesting options. But if you are willing to drive 5 miles or so, you can find 20 restaurants that are of similar quality and pay somewhere around 30% less - or you can go to some of the best restaurants in the region for the same price.

“Remember it is a small place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

I like this place really well but the staff needs to remember it is a small place and their voices travel. There is a very nice hostess there named Milly and the staff overall is nice. Great location and the food is consistent.

“Tasty lunch treat - the place for seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We had fish tacos and the daily special of grilled salmon "BLT". Got our dose of mercury with the swordfish in the tacos but it seemed worth it! Satisfying and tasty. I will be back to sample mor of this menu.
