My wife and I were visiting DC and came upon this restaurant at the Federal Triangle Metro location. Were enticed by the hostess to stop and sample the Wine Connection event on Wednesday afternoon with a discount for food and drink. Having spent hours sightseeing, it seemed great. Turned out it was vodka night, so the drink offering for the event had no relation to "wine" although they did allow us to trade the tokens in for the house Merlot or house "white". They had offered all you could care to sample of food, with oysters, bbq, chicken and veggies on the grill, all for part of the fixed price. The food was there, as were lines. Only three people behind the serving area cooking on the grill and serving the food, so it took little time for the line to get long. My wife opted for water, passing on the vodka offerings, and eventually they put out a water station. But not at the beginning, even with high temperature. After about an hour, management finally stepped in to help serve (strange since they were present from the beginning). Food was great, which made up for the some of the wait. But as we left, we wished we had just ordered a bite and left rather than allowing ourselves to be talked into something involving lines for food and limited beverages. I would pass on the event in the future.
