An assorted menu to choose from; very difficult to pick only one! Great staff, friendly, knowledge of the menu and never had to wait for a top-off of coffee. Very comfortable and inviting dinning room.

What a wonderful Old Town Alexandria venue. Intimate charm and excellent food. Great wine selection and knowledgeable bartender. We will return often. Several business types at the bar added to the ambiance.

The overall experience was of subdued elegance, serene ambience and delectable culinary enjoyment. The atmosphere was romantically 18th century; the window table view was pleasurable only enhanced by the subtlety of the originally appointed period décor. Although the service offered was pleasing, the prices do...More
