I have lived in Bethesda for several years right up the street from this place but this was my first time there. We went on a Thursday night around 7:00 for dinner. Unfortunately happy hour was still in full swing and there is no separation between the bar and the dining area. We had to yell at each other across the table and I ended up almost losing my voice it was so loud. It was also very warm almost as if the AC was not functioning. Eating steamy mussels in a hot loud bar is not very appealing. I am giving it an average rating not becasue of the atmosphere (which was terrible) but because the wait staff was good and the food was average. The best part of the meal was the crab dip and the warm bread. I had the white wine mussels and they were also average, the sauce could have been tastier. They serve french fries and they were so hard myself and a fellow diner thought we may break our teeth on them. My fellow diner informed the staff and they did bring us some new ones, which were much better, but they should not have been served in the first place in my opinion. We had two waiters and i was very pleased with their service, very attentive, knowledgable about the menu but very hard to hear what they were saying based on how loud it was.
