“Not quite there yet to make it "restaurant possible".”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I wouldn't suggest anyone going out if their way to try this place. Kind of dead when I was there for lunch, & an unpleasant layout of a restaurant. Was seated along the wall adjacent to bar area, & felt like I was in a main hallway as wait persons in abundance rushed by every few minutes. Where they were rushing off to I have no idea. Service was good- we were his only table; as for the food, I felt that "someone" had grandiose plans for a menu that in final execution faltered.Seafood veloute (waiter said it was french), was as another described rich & salty,& lacked any indication of the seafood content; it was hard to finish it. Steak on a hot rock was not for one who likes med rare steak- it was far to flat & thin to achieve this;4 pieces of asparagus accompanied it. Doubt if I'd return or recommend.

“Always great food and service ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I had been going to this place a lot recently. I feel like family there since most people are regulars at the bar or the sit down area. Always great atmosphere. Great food selection for lunch or dinner or happy hour at the bar. I highly recommend this place for your lunch or dinner.

“Great surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We had been on the road for a few hours; stopped for lunch at this gem of a "Mediterranean" restaurant in the Manassas Virginia area. The Portuguese soup was the closest to food that we have eaten with our family in Europe. The espresso was directly from Italy and the service delightful.

“Great Codfish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

We are portuguese and of course we had to go and try portuguese food in the States. And it is the real thing. Very good codfish, great service and very nice people! Loved it. If you want to try some really good food, and are tired of burguers and tacos, this is the place!
