Visited during the festival weekend. Had already eaten but wanted to check out the libations. Sat at the bar with a friendly Washingtonian and accomplished bartender. Enjoyed the drink and will return for a meal next time.

The food here was amazing. We both had the filet mignon. It was cooked perfectly and the mushroom sauce it came with was very good. The carrots were my favorite side dish. Everyone was very friendly. Our bartender, Jordan, was great. Will definitely go back again!

We sat at the bar, where we had cocktails and appetizers. The fried green tomato bites were out of this world. The bartender, Paul, is very attentive and charming. We had a great time with friends and family and cannot wait to go back for dinner.

I had dinner there with two other ladies, and we absolutely loved it! First, we tried the Stuffed Mushrooms appetizer (fabulous)! One friend got the Purple Rain cocktail special, and the others had wine. Two of us got the salmon with crushed pecans, and the roasted carrots with asparagus. All delicious! I got the Shrimp Bangkok on a bed of... More

I love the cheese plate here. That goat cheese is awesome and the pepper jelly is ridiculous. Who gets a cheese plate you ask? This guy...

The Bank .... was there for appetizers which I thoroughly enjoyed. Will need to return for dinner. Bistro atmosphere in high ceiling historic building. You walk through the open eating area which leads directly to the bar which surrounds the bank vault.

My husband and I dined here for a Friday night supper after a hard workday. The meal is prefaced with soft, warm bread and yummy honey butter. Pork chop was extremely flavorful and cooked to perfection. So juicy and tender with an amazing sauce! Portion size great as I had leftovers when I typically do not. Entrees come with a... More
