Stopped in here because they had the shortest wait time in the hotel - pretty expensive!! But the food was good and so was our service- out table was right by the window so we could watch the tree lighting show

Ate mostly in the banquets area, but had 1 free night and went to the steakhouse. A lovely setting, the meal didn't match the elegance. Service was rather slow and I wasn't overly impressed with the food. For the price, I would say average at...More

It is a large cavernous restaurant. Sure it has a nice view of the Potomac but the view disappears once it gets dark. The food was good, the service was ok, the bar has a breadth of choices. The large rooms make it hard to...More

First, top notch steak cooked to perfection with the most decadent Bernaise sauce ever. The sauce was actually worth the $6 upcharge. Interestingly, the salmon dish was just as good, somewhat surprising for a steakhouse. Very good cocktails, good wine list, nice setting, but as...More

The reservation I made went from 10-14 in a short period of time and once I was able to make contact with the restaurant desk, the arrangements were made with no issues. The staff was great. The waiter had an odd sense of humor that...More
