Trademark is the neighborhood bar for a remarkable neighborhood. With a nod to our close friends at the U.S. Patent and Trade Office, we take our inspiration from the innovators whose once daring ideas set the standard.

Then knowing exactly what the standard is, Trademark enjoys nothing better than tweaking it. Someone else had the brilliant idea to combine pork with beans, macaroni with cheese and gin with vermouth. We simply came up with a way to make you think you’re tasting them for the first time.

The mixologists behind our bar program understand that some drinks are made to forget a hard day, others to foster inspiration, and still others to toast old friends and instant acquaintances. We also noticed that good things happen when the atmosphere is properly stimulating. You’ll find the mood at Trademark as comfortable as it is inventive.

The room was too loud with only 3 tables seated. Food was delicious and portion sizes were good. A couple dollars overpriced on their mains.

Catherine was witty and read the table so well. She was incredibly personable and made us laugh, hard. I felt so special and watched in admiration as it was clear that’s how all her tables feel. She really is something special.

Great food, nice location, but service could be better. I arrived at 5:40pm, but didn’t get my drink for another half hour. I didn’t get to put in an order for happy hour apps and missed getting a second happy hour drink due to slow service (she got 14% instead of 20-25%). We’ll be back, but hopefully get a more motivated sever!

We were looking for new local dining. Did not realize this was in a hotel. But no problem with that. The restaurant was very loud. Distractingly so. Beer selection was decent. Food was OK. But bottom line was nothing makes us want to go back or take guests there.

Surprised to find service this spotty during a half-empty service on Mother's Day. No Host/Hostess visible to seat guests. Long wait to order. Multiple validation/re-validation of whether we "have a reservation" (again, in a half-empty establishment).

Food was good, drinks were not. White Sangria is cough-syrupy-sweet. Very bad experience.

The service is good, and we enjoyed the buffalo chicken pot stickers. The crab cake salad was good too.

The acoustics in the place, even though relatively empty, were live and echoed, and the overhead music was hit or miss.

So happy Trademark Drink & Eat has re-opened in the West End of Old Town Alexandria in The Westin Hotel! The premise of the Westin brand is all about “well being”...eat well is reflected with locally sourced food and healthy ingredients. It’s worth a visit for the cocktail menu of hand-crafted drinks alone!!!

Food was good, but the establishment needs more than one server working the floor. After the server asked us if we’d like dessert, and we declined, we waited 15 mins for our check. We just about walked out without paying.

I hope you will give us another chance to show you that this type of service is not our standard for our guests.

Overall the experience was just so-so. This place is probably great for an after hour drink or to simply service the near by hotel's traveler for a bite without the drive. I do not believe I will be coming back for dinner.

The hostess and waiter were very nice upon arrival. We ordered the chicken nachos as an appetizer. By the time the waiter brought us the app the chips were soggy and the cheese had started to get that film you see once the cheese starts to cool. We asked for more chips and the waiter was nice enough to bring fresh chips. Oddly, upon the waiter's return he asked if we wanted our 2nd course... we thought this was strange since we had order the main course with the nachos and typically restaurants will bring the hot food out once it is ready. The main course was good, but a bit salty. I order the short rib & cheddar sandwich and my husband ordered the salmon.

Not really sure where others that have rated this highly have dined as it did disappoint me today. The burger my girlfriend ordered was basic at best and underwhelming. My crab cake sandwich was decent but not the best I have ever had. Try The Warehouse for the best Old Town or all of VA has to offer.

Service was fine, and the overall appearance of the restaurant it also very nice.

Would I go back? No, there are far many better choices nearby.

As always, the food and service were excellent. The Beltway Burger was cooked as expected and never having the candied bacon before, I was surprised how delicious it was. The Huevo Rancheros was more than expected and quite good. We would order both again. The Bloody Mary's were excellent.

We went to brunch at Trademark because it has the best Bloody Mary's. The homemade mix is the best. Upon our arrival Jessica told us the bar was closed. She saw the look of disappointment on our faces, Jessica said wait one moment. She came back and told us she found the key and she would make the Bloody Mary's. That is customer service. She was terrific and we will definitely ask for her in the future. The food was excellent and the ambiance quieter than most places.

Two Thanksgivings in a row, Trademark was quite cold inside. This negatively impacted our enjoyment, as well as our food temp. The atmosphere is lovely, however, and the food was very good. The staff should pull back from hovering over patrons. The staff were at our table almost as much as we were. Then, somehow, they ignored me when i needed the check. It took me 15+ minutes to flag someone down to ask for the check.

The Trademark used to be the place to go for Sunday brunch in Alexandria. Very good food, plus $1 Mimosas refills and your first one. However, they have redone their Brunch menu and eliminated the Mimosa special. We were not told that until we started to order. So, no more Sunday brunching with the crew at the Trademark, going somewhere else.

Proximity to a conference was the reason for selecting the restaurant. Staff was most accommodating. Drinks were great; food was only so-so. Being from the "left coast," we are accustomed to fresher produce and more lively flavors. I'm sure there is a palate for whom this would be agreeable.

We find ourselves eating at the Trademark at least three or four times per year - usually when they have some special event - Brewery Night - Tequila Night etc. This time it was for Alexandria Restaurant week 2019. Everything was perfect, the specific table we requested was waiting for us. The service was friendly and very competent. We both had the lamb chops which were delicious. No problems or complaints.
