“Decent bar”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

This place looks like a sports bar, but it doesn't have an NFL pack on cable, so if your game is not on major network, you are Out of luck. Atmosphere is pretentious casual, food and service generic. I did like mushroom flatbread with pesto. It's an average place overall. Across from metro station, there are nice seats and tv outside if you want to enjoy beer outside.

“Breakfast, lunch, dinner or just drinks/appetizers...perfect!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We had more than a few meals here and enjoyed each and every one of them...no dislikes whatsoever! The cheese board with our dark ale and red wine outside were perfect after a long walking day. The crab cakes were super and so was the short ribs dinner. Wonderful Sunday morning breakfast with Mimosas before heading to the National Zoo was delightful. Atmosphere and decor impressive.

“Stopped in for drinks”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Looks great, super trendy, matches everything else on the block. We stopped here for drinks after some jazz and comedy at the Kennedy Center. It was just ok. They were out of a lot of the beers on the menu and the Dark and Stormy the bartender made me was really hard to drink...too much lime I think. I didn't do any of the drink ordering, but the bartender confused a couple of the tabs, had a hard time keeping everything straight, and there was always a line. It wasn't super busy, so I'm not sure what was going on. Hopefully just a bad night.

Had lunch at Circa in Foggy Bottom before a play at the Kennedy Center and was surprised as how delicious it was. We ate at the bar as there was a wait to be seated. There drink menu as well as food menu were both plentiful! Their new fall menu is delicious. We had the corn chowder, lobster ravioli, pulled chicken BBQ sandwhich with fries, wine and beer. It could not have been better and the service was outstanding. Highly recommend it!
