Dined here on a Wednesday night. Service was fantastic. Squash bisque was excellent. Halibut is very likely the best I have ever had. Possibly the Parmesan truffle fries as well. Filet was amazing. Highly recommend. Will definitely be on my list the next time I visit D.C. Thanks for an impeccable meal!

Stopped by without a reservation. They were able to seat us but you really do need a reservation! Oh my the filet was sooo tasty! We had the brussel sprouts; again beyond our expectations. The wait staff were so nice. I highly recommend this top shelf restaurant.

We ate here on our first night in Washington DC, looking for something hearty following a long journey. The restaurant is situated on Pennsylvania Avenue with Capitol Hill not far.

We had the calimari and garlic shrimp to start. The seafood was fresh although the shrimp was slightly overcooked. The shrimps also came with cheese in the sauce, which my partner specifically asked about as not a fan of any cheese. It was only a mild flavour, however.

The tenderloin with lobster tails and NY Strip mains were beautifully cooked, and the accompaniments of mashed potatoes and truffle fries excellent.

Desserts of coconut cream pie and brulee cheesecake were a tasty end to the meal.

We had a lovely Californian merlot to accompany the mains. Serving staff were friendly and very pleasant.

Our minor complaints would not deter us from returning. The atmosphere was very convivial.
