We were seated promptly through online reservation for dinner. The restaurant was moderately busy, with predominantly groups of 6+ persons. The service was great; food was good, but not stellar for the prices charged here versus comparable restaurants off this location. Would we go again? Probably not.

My husband and I stopped here for dinner and a view of the Potomac river. The waiter was fabulous. He gave us other places to see in DC and also nightlife recommendations

We waited over 2 hours for our dinner. The food was okay and overpriced. Try a non-chain restaurant in the harbor.

This is a lovely place right on the harbour, lots of seating inside and lots of seating outside. Looks right across the harbour. Food, service and general feel in this place is very good. Staff were excellent and looked after us throughout the meal.

Sitting on the patio was a perfect spot to enjoy a lunch with business associates. The service was excellent and the food was up to McCormick and Schmick standards. If you like salads, this is the place to have one.

I have eaten at a lot of restaurants. Five star experiences are usually reserved for an excellent meal and experience. This was not one of those BUT it was a sold lunch in a lovely setting on the patio overlooking the harbor. I ordered the local rockfish which was quite good. The other dishes in the group were reported as... More

Consistent quality in seafood, salads, drinks and service. On a hot July night, the cool, quiet, attractive restaurant was just what we needed. Drinks were generous. We enjoyed every dish. For our table that included fish tacos, seafood stuffed mushrooms, crab legs and a flatbread. We keep coming back because they always deliver good value.

Had a reservation and was seated 15 minutes early. Our server's name was David. Excellent job by him. Drinks, appetizers, & main courses were brought to us in a very timely fashion. We were there least than an hour and was not rushed. We celebrated our 40th anniversary there and was a great choice!!

We celebrated my husband's birthday here this year and the staff was very nice and accommodating. We arrived earlier than our reservation and it was no problem. They greeted us with a "happy birthday" menu and made sure that our every need was met. We had a great view of the Potomac and after dinner, he received a complimentary birthday... More
