The cioppino was one of the best I've ever had. All the seafood was cooked perfectly. The only issue was it took 20 minutes for us to get our bill after we're finished eating.

We waited a bit longer than I think we should have had to wait for our reservation however it was very very busy. Once we were seated the service was excellent.

We were disappointed with the service and delay on drinks. For a Saturday night it seemed to have enough servers but not enough urgency.

The experience was great. Great food...the catfish was awesome. Colin was our service provider and he was fantastic, fun, and genuinely nice. This is a great place to eat or fellowship over drinks. We will return the next time we are in DC.
