We enjoyed a lovely meal starting with the lobster appetizer, delicate and delicious. We also shared a pistachio, a shaved Parmesan salad and a dozen oysters. Next our family had the buffalo tenderloin, which was very tender. The others enjoyed the soft shelled crab and...More

I never walk out of a restaurant, until this night. And it's not a tragedy in the big scope of life, but it was not cool. We ordered Grey Goose vodka martinis, specifying Grey Goose. So they don't sell that, they have one off brand...More

We had a large group and used one of their private meeting rooms in the back. Great atmosphere and excellent food and desserts. This is almost a must if in the area.

Dinned here with friends in mid April. While the food was good and solid, the restaurant was loud and the service annoying. In particular, while the restaurant was not full (there were empty tables on the second floor), it took them more than two hours...More

Great, tasty meal! My friend had the beef cheeks and loved them. I had the steak and it was tasty. Wine pours were generous. I found the martinis to be stingy in terms of the amount of alcohol. The service was very attentive.

Lovely elegant restaurant. Very comfortable seating, well spaced tables, soft lighting, sophisticated muted toned decor. Moderate noise level. We did the tasting menu with wine matching. Our server was a character and took great care of us. The food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented....More

The food was excellent - especially the tuna - with very nice accompanying wine. Ambiance relaxed and a semi-formal decor. Really good for a group dinner - staff helpful and informative without being too keen or over bearing. Would happily go back when in DC!

Hi, I had my 12 year old daughter, absolutely no issue. If the children are younger, the place is not deathly quiet so I think as long as the kids are well behaved, it will be fun. And I am a big believer in exposing... More
