Wild mushroom fritatta was made up with dried mushrooms. Awful! Filet mignon was some other cut of meat, not filet. Bernaise sauce needs vinegar, tarragon, and other spices. It was awful. No taste. Parmesan polenta had absolutely no flavor.
You're captive in this hotel and restaurant. Nothing in the vicinity to choose from. The servers are not customer oriented. The have a disinterested demeanor and far away look like, "this is just a job". Right. And we who patronize this place expect service, not duty.

Surprising that an excellent restaurant can be found in a hotel, but I have eaten at Finn and Porters for dinner and breakfast and had excellent meals. For dinner, they have an excellent salad and a sushi bar which is also great. For breakfast they have the "design your own omellett" which you can choose your ingredients. All in all, it is a fine dining experience and very convenient if you are staying in the Hilton Alexandria.

Steak, Seafood, and Sushi place at the Hilton. I had dinner here (a half-chicken) which was delicious! Ordered a hearts of romaine lettuce salad, and they literally served a head of romaine on its side with the dressing on top which was interesting. Dessert was also fantastic - I had a flourless chocolate cake with ice cream.

Only reason I'm not giving it an "Excellent" is because my server seemed to disappear for a while near the end of my meal. But overall, I would come back here again.

The food was great and the staff are excellent. On the down side portion sizes are ridiculous. Order breakfast off the menu rather than the buffet.

I ate here 3 times during my weeks stay, unless you have a very large appetite you can probably share the starters here, i ordered chicken wings and got 12 huge wings, the sea bass is very good and the scallops are excellent.

There is also a Sushi Bar the chef makes your order in front of you and is also very good
