We had a variety of appetizers here instead of getting entrees. The best dishes were the Shrimp in tomato-based sauce, and the Turkish Lamb sausage. The hummus was OK.

Not my cup of tea, not the food nor the service! Went there for lunch and the servers were running around, had to wait endlessly to order! Funny how all the previous reviews mention exactly what's on the menu great promo!

Went on the way back from the zoo - had chicken and chips - latter were done in the oven and poor the chicken was plentiful. Sat inside as there was a lack of tables outside which looked better. The waitresses are really polite and a credit to the place.Perhaps we should have gone for something more exciting from the menu.

Went for Happy Hour - $3 Beer, $3 Frozen Margaritas: lime, strawberry or raspberry, $5 Sangria. $3 Spicy Wings with fries (4 drumettes & fries). Our bill for 2 people came to only $16.50 for dinner. Outdoor seating allows people watching, indoor seating is dark. Nice staff, very attentive.

We grabbed a quick lunch there because it was a short walk from the Woodley Park/ Wardmen Marriott where we had a conference.

The "all day" happy hour was a pleasant surprise. Margaritas for $3. Where else does that happen in DC? And they were cold and served quickly. Nice drink while on the side under the umbrellas waiting for lunch.

for lunch we ordered hummus, grape leaves, a falafel sandwich and I forget what my colleague had. The meals arrived quick enough served "basket style" with what looked like homemade french fries. Decent - not mind-blowingly fabulous, but solid enough for a nice lunch. I was slightly irritated that the menu prices and selection online didn't seem to match the restaurant, but it turns out there is a separate button to click for the lunch menu online, which we'd missed. No big deal.

Overall, it was about what we expected, with the pleasant surprise of a chilled margarita as well. Compared to neighborhood prices in Woodley Park ($19.50 for a standard lunch buffet at the hotel), this was just fine. If we have another conference at the Wardmen, we'd eat there again.
