We had the deviled eggs and fried calamari as starters, then salmon, crab cakes, steak as entrees. All food was expertly prepared and tasted great. Service was friendly and quick. All in all, a great dining experience at surprisingly moderate prices.

Elegant and cosy restaurant that offers a range of dishes, though only one I found vegan friendly but staff able and willing to accommodate. Friend had the tuna salad and she loved it. And ask to sit upstairs.

This is a fine restaurant so it is expensive. With that being said, it is worth the cost. I had the best steak of my life while dining there. The mashed potatoes were delicious as well. They also have a nice selection of alcoholic beverages....More

If you want great food at a fair price this is the place! Everything they serve is delicious, you can’t go wrong! Their pastry shop side also serves sandwiches and they are first class! This is the place! I love it!

Seated and served quickly, excellent food (new Orleans shrimp and grits, jambalaya), and not too loud so conversation is easy. Priced right. Nice spot in Shirlington.
