Nina's Dandy reviews from OpenTable diners
  • I had a first date on the
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/17/2012
    I had a first date on the Nina's Dandy back in January of this year, and returned this past weekend to propose to that same girl - I got a YES! The crew was all very helpful and kind, working with me to pull off the surprise. The atmosphere was perfectly romantic, with live music, and enough room between tables to be somewhat private - not to mention a great view of DC from their deck!!

  • We dined on Nina's Dandy for
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 12/25/2011
    We dined on Nina's Dandy for Christmas Dinner. It was a beautiful setting for a special meal. They accomadated our 4 year old with Chicken with Mac & Cheese (she did devour her own bowl of the seafood chowder as well proclaiming it YUMMY). While the tides and rain levels were against us getting to go up to see the monuments it was still very enjoyable. Our only complaint was the wine list and the lack of options.
