Mexican | Shaw, District of Columbia

We went to Espita Mezcaleria as a group of 6 for an early Sunday dinner. The food and drinks were all outstanding, from the salsas all the way to the entrees. Our table was definitely the rowdiest, but I think only because we dined on the earlier side. I would highly recommend and definitely plan to return. More

Steak | Downtown, District of Columbia

Of all of the times I’ve come to this establishment, it seems as though the waiter kept forgetting about us. Once we received our food, he didn’t check on us. We waited for awhile before he came back to order drinks with our food and it took long to bring it. In addition, when we were ready for desert, he took a 15 minutes to bring the desert menu. I hate to complain, but the service could have been better especially after I boast about this restaurant to my partner. More

Mediterranean | Van Ness, District of Columbia

My husband I I brought my mother, who is 84 and hard of hearing, to Acacia on Saturday night. Much as I enjoy live music, I was dismayed to see a jazz trio letting up, as we arrived, because I was afraid we wouldn’t be able to hear each other speak. The staff quickly sized up the situation and led us to the patio, where we sat in a gentle summer breeze, listening to muted but still enjoyable jazz in the background, and conversing over delicious bison kebabs, glazed salmon, vegetables, and salads. It was a delightful evening in an unexpected oasis in the city. More

It took almost an hour between the time we ordered our food and we received it at the table. I understand that there is a certain ambiance but I was just there for dinner with my daughter and not a romantic or celebratory occasion. The service could have been better. More

Seafood | Fairfax, Virginia - DC Suburbs

We opened as a Gourmet Seafood Market specializing in Mediterranean Seafood, hence the name MediterraFISH. Our goal was to introduce more SEAfood in addition to OCEANfood to east coasters and let more people know about the healthy eating style of the Mediterranean. Our Turkish heritage and our business ties in the region allowed us to bring species that no other supplier had before.
As we became known as the best fresh seafood market in the area providing sustainable and healthy seafood, we were bombarded by our customers requests to provide cooked seafood. This led to adding a restaurant to our existing concept. Our menu combines variety of sustainable and trustworthy seafood with halal meat, chicken & vegetarian dishes. We are also known for our hand crafted salads. Our restaurant also has a kids play room for families to enjoy their meals together.

Contemporary American | Mount Vernon, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Located in the Union Market neighborhood, the second outpost of Joe Carroll’s popular NYC restaurant aims to bring some of the laid back vibes of Brooklyn to Washington, DC. St. Anselm is an American tavern devoted to the pleasures of grilled meats and great ingredients simply cooked. While steak is a specialty, the creativity of Chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley doesn’t stop there. Delicious food, eclectic wines (some on tap), and classic cocktails set the tone for a great experience. Paired with friendly service in an unpretentious setting adorned with quirky décor, dining at St Anselm is the total package.More
