I went with a friend after work for dinner but they only offered happy hour drinks and apps. So we ordered a bunch of apps and a few drinks, the drinks were great for the price and the apps were O-K. You can do better in DC.

Found this restaurant on our first evening in DC and it was AWESOME! Bottomless soda and really friendly staff. I had the most amazing appetiser, I can't remember what it was called but fries, cheese, bacon and sour cream!!!!!!! Main course was also good, vegetables cooked perfectly and excellent sauces to add flavours 😊 Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Meet a group of friends for food and drinks in the front bar at some high tops. Murph the bartender was outstanding. He kept our drink and food orders straight and provided outstanding service. When most of the group left a couple of us went to the bar and hung out to last call. Again great service and conversation while... More

Ate brunch here recently with a group of friends. We had a reservation and were seated in about 10 min because it was busy. The restaurant is in a great spot in DuPont and we sat outside on the crowded patio. The brunch menu is rather limited, because the restaurant wants you to cash in on the $25/person unlimited buffet.... More

It wasn't bad and I wouldn't give this place a poor rating... But if to be honest, there's nothing special about this place and some of the food is a bit heavy... The salad dressing is right out of the 90's... They have room for large groups and such and I best happy hour can be nice there... food, was... More

I stopped by for breakfast and decided to go with the all you can eat buffet brunch. Partly because the morning menu is very limited in choices for breakfast. The brunch is not cheap, $25, but its all you can drink Mimosas and all you can eat. With fresh made omelets and Belgian waffles. Along with normal kind of brunch... More

I recently attended a graduation party which was catered by the front page. I must say the food was fabulous! The boneless chicken wings were a little dry but we're okay once we slathered them in dipping sauce. The orzo pasta salad was wonderful as well as the green beans and carrots. Would definitely eat here in the future.

The only bright spot was the manager, who recognized that our waiter was incompetent and tried to provide assistance while apologizing often for the waiter. However, the manager could not stay with the table so after a bit of time we were once again stuck with the waiter. We asked multiple times for water, plates, crushed peppers and the check.... More

I had read some of the reviews and we were iffy, but the proximately to our hotel won us over and we are decide to go. We were not disappointed one bit! The hostess welcomes you with open arms and a great smile. The feeling was like if we were regulars, the manager as well. Saving the best for last... More
