I took a group of 12 here for dinner on a business trip. The service was good as was the food. Prices are reasonable and the ambiance is fine. I would recommend this for a reasonably priced chain experience.

Foods okay but overpriced, Ambiance is active and fun but way too loud to carry on a reasonable conversation. Rockville Pike area has too many other choices to hurry back.

The food is delicious. The atmosphere is great. If you're going with a family of 4 or 5, just be aware that this is a little more pricy than some other local area restaurants.

...literally. I met my husband here And we had our wedding reception here & multiple gatherings/parties/celebrations. The atmosphere is what reeled me in and the food kept me. The drinks are on point and I love the matchbox punch. Occasionally they have rice balls which always aren't listed on the menu but when I ask for them, they have them... More

This location has a full menu, unlike the one near Verizon Center which has a more limited Bistro menu. Two things to NOT miss, try the Kale Caesar, and the hot artichoke and spinach dip. OMG. The bread that comes with it.....to die for. I could have made a whole meal just on those two items. The pizza was yummy... More

There's nothing special about this at all. The Pizza combinations are outside the ordinary but are not that special. The Arancini is a bit strange and overpriced for what you get. It's not done traditional style (or size) and is just stuffed with Mozarella, and served on a bed of what appeared to be canned tomato puree. I would not... More

We went on a Friday with few colleagues before 7pm to enjoy the happy hour. Wille we were waiting for the table we started to order drinks at the bar, but when we got the table we moved to the table. After like 10 minutes of waiting to order, the waiter finally showed up but told us that the happy... More

Just tried the pizza with the kids. The selection was not your usual choice for toppings but it did phase my group. Sorry I can t give any other comments but we're ready to go back for more "research".

One of the few places that I have found that has really great gluten free pizza. It is pricey but if you want to go out and get some good pizza which is hard to find when you're allergic to gluten you can feel assured this is a good choice.
