Great food, great service, like eating a home cooked meal. Atmosphere is somewhat lively depending upon the crowd. Great drinks. This is a somewhat pricey establishment, but on par with other restaurants in Old Town. I found the cocktails to be reasonable.

Nice restaurant in Old Town Alexandria. Portion sizes are small but food was of good quality. Eating in the main dining room was nice especially with the all glass ceiling. I think this would be a nice place to go for drinks or meeting up...More

I really like this place. It has great history, cool decor, and it's one of the best restaurants in town. We went for happy hour food a few weeks ago, and I was blown away at the options at such reasonable prices. I recommend it!
