The snacks, lighter bites as served in the lounge were delicious. Lobster sandwich was a bit bland, but the fries were good. Husband's steak had good flavor. Also had dinner at a fundraiser earlier in the week and was quite good for a banquet-style meal.

Went here to meet a colleague for lunch. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We both had spicy tuna rolls...delicious. The only thing I didn't like was that out server seemed to forget about us after bringing our entrees. Waiting a while to get our check and had to flag down our server from across the room.

Very good food but menu is a bit eclectic. They have a burger on the menu along side sushi next to a Caesar salad. The restaurant is very quiet even when it is busy. The desserts look and are amazing.

Had meeting nearby and dropped by for lunch. Great service and very good food. A bit pricey, but hey you are in DC. Crab soup was good, as was the sushi.

Food very poor. The price does not fit to the poor quality of the food. I was staying in the hotel and got down for dinner. After being sited and to receive the wine drinks menu I was then asked to show an ID for a glass of wine otherwise they would not be able to serve me. For sure... More

Do not get me wrong, the food was great and we understand the need for a limited menu especially on a Thursday evening when there's not a big event in town, but the limited selections left us wanting more. Both of our dishes were great but it seemed there wasn't much Asian Fusion here. It was sushi as an appetizer... More

Nothing special besides the filet which was , by far, the best that I have ever had. Little imagination and over priced

Had the lobster sandwich and BBQ pulled pork sandwich. Both were lovely and filling. The highlight was the Kir Royale that reminded me of Paris where you have an aperitif before meals. Yummy!
