I had dinner here. Nice menu with lots of options. The food was good, and the prices were reasonable. The waitress was really helpful. The restaurant had a small bar that seemed to be a draw for young people, as it was hopping. The restaurant is decorated in a newspaper theme, which was fun. The restaurant was on the noisy... More

Fabulous service and the food was some of the best we have had on this trip. French dip was loaded with tender flavorful beef. Stew was excellent, seasoned perfectly! We highly recommend!

Boy was this place busy! Noisy but great energy. Crab cakes were excellent , good wine and craft beer choices . Music was load but if you were just in the bar section it had a great energy and vibe to it.

Stopped by for lunch when a snooty greeter put me in the worst table in the place despite being mostly empty. Guess he didn't like seating one person. The crab cake sandwich was small but decent quality. Still, it was overwhelmed by a larger bun. Service was good, but the atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon just seemed lifeless even with... More

Dark and gloomy inside, should have been a sign of what to come. We had to request for the floor and table to be cleaned after being seated. I order the crab sandwich, my wife ordered the chicken flat bread and the kid had buffalo wings. The only that was good were the wings. The sandwich and flat bread were... More

This was poor. The mixed grill had a rack that was 'tough as old boots' when it should have been falling off the bone. All the food came much too quickly, so couldn't have been cooked to order and there was no time for reflection, relaxation, digestion or conversation between courses. Get 'em in, get 'em fed and get 'em... More

Walked in and literally walked right back out. Bouncer checked our ID'S then went after a businessman that snuck past him. Walked into the bar area that was extremely loud with a radio station and shot girls already going around before 6pm! Wandered back around to another side that was completely empty and pretty sure the manager saw us, didn't... More

Stumbled upon Front Page strolling through DC on a late Saturday afternoon. Patio wasn't very busy so we sat out there. Staff was very unprofessional constantly bickering at one another and complaining about management. That is a major pet peeve of mine, keep your "in house issues" behind th curtains. Also, one of the employees was off shift and drinking... More

I work in the area and come here quite often. The restaurant is a little dark inside and there are usually plenty of tables, but check before going because they often get large groups. The food is good, particularly the salads. I have also had the burger in the past and that was quite good as well.
