    Made a reservation for a Saturday night dinner. When we arrived, the place was packed and there was not a hostess around. Instead, they were having a match.com event that completely took over the entire restaurant. I had to flag down a staff member who had no clue we had reservations. He said we could "grab a table" in the back. We sat down in a booth and looked at the menu. During this time, a man and lady (from match.com) event stood in front of our table and got to know each other. In their defense, there weren't many places to stand. I was extremely disappointed that we were not notified of this event in the first place. Finding a Saturday night dinner reservation is not easy and the "heads' up" would have been nice. We left.

    Even with the back patio closing for the impending winter, I look forward to regular weekday lunches here, especially on Thursdays when select appetizers are half off, as are bottles of wine. The food is consistently good, and the service is cheerful, friendly and prompt.

    Excellent and varied menu, and very reasonably priced. Service was terrific. I had the ribs and my wife had the salmon. We shared a grilled artichoke appetizer.

    In town for business and looking for someplace with an outdoor seating area to take advantage of some nice weather. We found a very pleasant and welcoming atmosphere with a small fountain adding a nice, relaxing white noise to the outdoor dining area. Very interesting beer and wine lists, along with some unique menu options including salads, ribs, etc. Also some very tempting house-made desserts. We enjoyed it so much that we came back for a second night!

    Unique menu items. High quality food in a relaxed atmosphere. Great happy hour deals, and cool outdoor seating in the patio out back. Kitchen stays open late which is a nice bonus.

    We waited an hour and ten imputed got mediocre food. Most restaurants would try to make it up In some way but we were told some excuse which wasn't true re: the owner. We were all from out of town and with the many wonderful restaurants in the Bethesda area, we were ALL very disappointed.
