Total experience was fantastic! Price Fixe menu included several choices for each level. Food and service were outstanding, definitely worth the price. We ended up with take home due to portion sizes.

Darn, I just wrote a long review but when I went to continue I hit the button that said that I WOULD recommend to a friend. I would definitely NOT recommend.
Food was fresh but just a mish-mash of tastes that left everything tasting the same - not great. Both mine and my sons were not good. Do not recommend the crab quesadillas or the shrimp with grits appetizer or something he had with eggs and piled high with boring suateed vegetables. Sorry guys!

Love this place - Will definitely be back! All 8 courses (2 people) were amazing! Although the rib-eye steak option was my least favorite. The quality of the steak didn’t match the level of all the other food. Have already recommended to family & friends.

First time trying this establishment and I love it!!! We reserved the dinner experience for a date and it was phenomenal. Sean, Executive Chef, and Caleb, our Waiter are a dynamic duo. I felt like I was right at home with 5 star cuisine. I’ve raved about this place to everyone I know and will be back very very soon! If you’ve never been, you’ve got to go!

Truly superb dining! The dishes were unique and the flavors were outstanding. The setting was the perfect ambiance! We really enjoyed the intimacy of the restaurant and the complimenting music. I was a little bummed that my special request wasn’t acknowledged for dessert to be brought out with a candle for my fiancée’s birthday but nevertheless we had a great experience and will return if we are back in town. And yes, the Dope Juice is just as good as they say it is.

Food was to die for. Had their hangover dish from the Sunday Brunch menu. Everything was hot, cooked to perfection. The jalapeno cornbread was perfectly baked and was moist rather than hard and crumbly. The goat mac and cheese! It was all amazing. The portion size was more than enough. Go!

Close personal venue. When I say Close and personal, the waiter stopped chatted up and was engaged all night, the chef came out from cooking and conversed with all parties that were there that night. There was a great deal of care and love put into the menu. I will say the salmon was immaculate, the ny strip was amazing, the chicken dumplings rivaled some of my favorite asian spots, his chilli was as good as my uncles, and vegan ice cream :/ WHO KNEW????
The time, and venue were honestly the best spot weve stopped in dc, md, va; she rated it right above cafe44 and thats her favorite lol....And if you are of age get a carafe of the Dope Juice.....phenomonal.

Thank you Chef, and staff, we will be back.

Went there for anniversary. Food was delicious and so filling. Chicken dumplings were amazing as well as everything else. The chef came and talked to us after the meal and we told him how great the food was. You can see the chef cook from the table and meal feels very personal.
