Waiting times for food for a bit shorter than before but the food was better and the attention we got, excellent. They do not carry the "surf and turf" we used to order anymore mainly because the steak was like 4 oz and lobster only medium size, However our waiter managed to get us a sirloin steak with a small...

Good reliable service and good food. Booths are ideal for a business lunch. Servers know when to approach or leave you alone.

Had dinner here last night. I had the flounder and my guest had the scallops. Both were delicious and cook perfectly. After dinner had the crème brulee served with fresh berries with excellent coffee. Excellent service by our waiter Hamed. Very near the metro and parking garage right next door.

No reason why the bartender can't listen to the waiters. Here at happy hour. Waited 15 minutes for my second drink and it was wrong. Place is not packed at all. Very bad service. Bar has 3 people and it's really early. I am writing this before I even ordered food because they are slow and have no sense of... More

Went here for a birthday dinner. Although it was quite expensive, $200 for four, the food was outstanding and the portions were reasonable and not "super sized".

Having dined at this restaurant two years ago and found it to be excellent we noted that it was definitely worth returning on our next visit to Washington DC / Arlington VA. Two years on we returned: what a disappointment. The meal started well with a friendly greeting by our 'Server' who recommended some Appetisers. We chose the Shrimp Kisses:... More

Visited here last night on business. We starter outside with happy hour margaritas. First round came out a little on the sweet side, the manager came over and apologized and got us new drinks which were perfect. We then moved inside for dinner. I had the carpaccio which was absolutely delicious. The wine selection by or server was great. For... More

We-R-Local. Over the last couple of years, we’ve had dinner here quite a number of times. I generally order steak, which are really good quality, very tasty and have always been cooked perfectly. (1st TIP – describe how you want it cooked to ensure their definition of rare, medium, medium well – aligns with what you want). My wife tends... More

This is a good place for a business meeting: the food is above average, there is a good selection so everyone is happy, and they have good drinks. The chowder was tasty, but largely devoid of clams; the mussels were pretty good, but a little dried out and rather small; the fish entrees were good; the service was good; and... More
