Our son lives in DC and wanted to try dinner here as he had heard such wonderful things. We were happy to join him the day after Christmas. We joined the line forming outside the unmarked door about 4:45 and were about 10th in line....More

This was such a great experience and worth getting in line for! We got in line at around 4:30 on a Saturday and were the third group in line. The weather was nice so the hour wait wasn't bad - lots of people watching. I...More

This is my favorite restaurant in DC! It never disappoints. The staff are amazing, taking the time to explain every dish and drink. The wine pairing is a must!

The food and service is incredible. I would highly recommend doing the wine paring with the meal. We went on a Thursday and did not have to stand in line that long. I cannot wait to go back.

My friend brought me here, and when we got to the front door, I thought it was closed. No sign, down a few stairs, worn door. That plain exterior belies the food experience hiding behind it. We did the drink pairing, and I highly recommend...More

The only thing I have to complain about is that I accidentally lost the menu that I kept from the dinner. It was fantastic. I loved the food. I liked how it gradually got a bit hotter with every dish. The important thing is that...More

One person can stand in line to wait, but when the door opens you will all need to be there. If I’m not mistaken doors open at 5:30 for an immediate seating. Whoever doesn’t make the first cut goes on the next seating (I... More

I don't think they do. It's quite small and very crowded. More importantly their best experience is the set menu.
