Great for date night or to grab a cocktail and appetizers! This is one of the best quality wine/cocktail menus and food in town. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive. I highly recommend the smoked salmon flatbread, the tuna tartar and the gnocchi.

Very attractive restaurant near the Verizon Center. Dining with friend. She had Banana Leaf Wrapped Halibut and I had the Veal Cheeks & Papardelle Pasta. Both were very good; but, not exceptional. House wines were very good. Centrally located near Metro stop.

As usual great customer service and very accommodating to my dietary restrictions. The duck liver mousse, the gnocchi and buttemilk ice-cream were excellent.
