The Majestic has been our “go to” place in D.C. for many years. I have neglected to write a review, but have referred to it in other reviews as a measuring stick against other restaurants. I have used it for special occasions, for a meeting place after court in Alexandria and for having a convivial meal at the bar after... More

Always delicious, modern, American food. The chef uses ingredients that are indicative of the season so the menu changes seasonally. Ambience is good, simple, and elegant. I seriously have not had a bad dish here!

I had an amazing dinner with friends on Friday. We shared several appetizers, and filled up quickly. Everything I ordered was fabulous. As I said above, the brussels sprouts were amazing, and I really dislike them. I highly recommend the mussels and the scallops as well. Make sure you dine here if you don't get to Old Town Alexandria often.

The wife and I visited this restaurant after walking around Alexandria on a Saturday morning. We ordered and shared a fresh an appetizer of chargrilled octopus that included yukon potatoes, lemon emulsion, and garlic. It was very good and we almost ordered another plate. I had the lobster roll that was over flowing with lobster meat. It was dressed with... More

Finally paid a visit to this posh restaurant for lunch in Old Town Alexandria right after Christmas. The restaurant is upscale, swank atmosphere and busy. Menu of American style food has a good amount of choices. We had the steak and cheese, mushroom soup, and BLT. Each was superb. Service was also very good for the most part. They have... More

This unassuming place has been around for quite some time and I had never been there until a shopping trip gave me the occasion. I came by for lunch and enjoyed a great meal! A wonderful selection of beers and cocktails to accompany delicious food. Real comfort food that is amazing!

Our initial waiter was excellent, he took time to explain the menu, never rushed us with drink orders, and even made a suggestion for a drink to my liking. But then he disappeared??? In the middle of the evening??? Beyond that quirk, our meal was delicious, I had the meatloaf, companion had butternut squash ravioli. We didn't have room for... More

Right in the middle of the long stretch of King Street, this purposefully retro cafe offers an open and friendly atmosphere that is great for business, a casual meal between friends or a birthday. It is quiet enough to hear your conversation, which is always a plus in my book. I was looking for an opinion on a wine on... More

At times, the Majestic Cafe's throwback neon sign has some elements burned out. What a dive, you may think. But it has an excellent menu; the specials are worth ordering; and the non-alcoholic drinks some of the best in Old Town. It was one of my very favorites when we lived in Old Town.

The older art deco-like sign led me to think that this was going to feel drab. (I guess it had been a long day.) After stepping inside the outer door, we then passed through a curtain covering the entry into the bar area where it suddenly felt as if this was the right place. The other two members of our...
