They have a wonderful page of wines picked by the sommelier that are great but not well known in the US. I set a price point of $120. The sommelier recommended a great bottle for $ 62. That's important to keep that in mind during the rest of the review.
It was a 65th birthday for someone special. We told them that in advance. We had drinks at the bar ($65 including for 2 cocktails and 1 glass of wine...not included in the price of dinner).
We were taken to a perfect booth and the service was wonderful (close to the best in DC). I cannot say enough about the quality of the service....but on to the review.
We ordered 2 starters for three people (I had the classic wedge salad).
Two of us had the domestic wagu filet and the birthday boy had a rib eye.
We had an extra order of fries (wonderful) for the table and an order of the sautéd spinach for the table (also wonderful). (They brought an order of fries as the amuse brouche....I can't spell that name correctly so bear with me..anyway, it was a wonderful order of fires with 3 sauces).
We concluded the evening with 2 shared desserts. Given they knew it was a big birthday, they brought him a scoop of coffee ice on (I believe) a slice of olive oil based cake which was great.
The problem? Two straters, three main courses and two desserts.
The bill came to within a few dollars short ($4 to be exact), of $600 including tip……remember the wine was $62 for one bottle. No other beverages were ordered except "table water" meaning DC tap water....
That’s outrageous given we went to the Inn at Little Washington with four people (three were the same) and had a wonderful dinner for 4 with 2 bottles of a great zinfandel plus everyone had a starter, main and dessert and paid about $1000 for the whole dinner including tip…for the Inn at Little Washington.
