În our first night in Washington we visit this restaurant. I suggest that try specifically American soup. Also grilled shrimp with pasta and garlic was ok. Good restaurant and reasonable price

My wife and I tried Grillfish our first night in DC and it was wonderful. We ate outside on the patio and enjoyed the nice weather. I had the swordfish and it was amazing. The wait staff was excellent! Very nice find!
