We frequently go to this gem of a
neighborhood restaurant. We've tried each of the regular dinner menu entrees and have never been disappointed--flavorful, well-presented and good to the last bite. Special favorite is the Jack Daniels pork chops; this meal has always been perfectly cooked and well topped with a great sauce and is a portion size that leaves a chop to go for lunch the following day!. The julienne vegetable side is sautéed al dente and is nicely flavored. Take advantage of the $10 off coupons that mail via Valu Pack.."

Kind waiter, felt no rush, felt
wanted there, got treated the way everyone should be treated when going out. Delicious food."

Very good service and everyone was
really nice, but we did have a few issues with the food. Our salmon dish was under-cooked. And the jambalaya that came with the prime rib with crab cake special had just one little shrimp in there. We pointed it out to our server who quickly apologized, brought it back to the kitchen, and a manager promptly brought it back out with a properly cooked salmon and one additional shrimp, which was ok with us. And just to note, the jambalaya was EXTREMELY spicy. I liked it that way, but I could imagine lots of folks would have issues with it. I guess all that combined could be a sign of quality control in the kitchen, but for us the service was very good and the food was tasty....which is what counts most."

Excellent dining experience,
except for the service. Service left a lot to be desired. How ever the excellent quality of the food made up for the service. I ordered the Kentucky Steak and Cheese, oh my god it was phanominal. Go to Ramparts they know what their doing!"

I tried something new and wished
I'd stayed with Gorgonzola mashed potatoes and filet. Prime rib was fatty and tasteles. But nice Malbec and we'll be back again."

A fine place for a quick meal with
family or friends. The menu is a bit boring with a range of pasta, burgers and seafood. Nothing is bad, but nothing to WOW anyone. Pricing is fair. Nice to stop by if you are in the area, but I would not make a special trip."

I have been to Ramparts countless
times. Never have I had a bad experience. The staff is always cheerful, the food is always good and cooked to order. Even on this busy night, there was no delay in anything here.....I highly recommend Ramparts !! There is a reason they've been in business so long. Stop by and see why !!"

Nothing real special about the
food or the atmosphere which was very disappointing. It is a neighborhood type place but of low quality overall. Very dark and out dated."

We had a group of 8 that grew to
10 and they were able to accommodate us. A number of people had the brunch specials and were all very pleased with the meals and left happy and thanking me for selecting a nice place. I had a steak sandwich which was very good with chunks of steak instead of the thin sliced typical chees steak. Portions were large enough nobody left hungry. We will be back again."

Went to brunch; was surprised by
the menu selection. They venture far beyond bacon and eggs. The place is inviting, the staff doting and courteous, and the food was great. Will definitely return."

We went on a Sat night for the
half-price bottle of wine. First indication of things being different was that the restaurant was far less busy than normal. We ordered wings (excellent) and then I ordered prime rib, wife ordered salmon, and son ordered a burger. While the burger and salmon were quite good, the prime rib first tendered (very fatty) and replaced (not rare, not great) were a disappointment. Service, though spirited and friendly, was uneven with large gaps of time with no visit. No apparent manager "prowling" the restaurant, something we've become used to in the past. The wheels did not come off the bus, but the engine was not certainly hitting on all cylinders--not the usual fun and tasty neighborhood dining experience."

We live nearby so stop here often
for a quick and easy dinner. The wait staff is always friendly and the tempo to the dining is fine. We just wish they'd improve the quality of the meat. I had salmon, which is my staple there. It was fine. My son ordered a steak but for the price the quality of the meat was disappointing. More fat than meat. This is not the first time that's happened. Our kids hate it when we go there and frankly if it weren't so convenient we wouldn't."

Food was tasty and generous . Our
waitress was attentive ,but not intrusive. She was busy ,yet efficient !"

The restaurant is smallish and has
a definite neighborhood feel about it. It's split with a bar at the back of it and so the noise level can be quite loud so difficult for close conversation. However, service is always very good, the menu is long and varied, complete with specials of the day. I've been for brunch, lunch, and dinner and always had a good meal."

We went to this restaurant for
Mother's Day brunch. The lunch/dinner entrees were good. The omlettes were well-prepared. However, the breakfast breads--bagels, coffe cake, biscuits--we're all store-bought, lacking any real flavor or character, and were served cold in unheated baskets. When we asked the manager to heat the biscuits and cold, hard bagels, she stated they would not do that on a buffet day. We then asked the matre'd and were told the same thing. Wow. The deserts were all tiny store-bought mini-cheesecakes and eclaires. Most were still frozen in the center. It's baffling how a restaurant can behave in this fashion and charge $25 per person. Unacceptable."

Ramparts is a neighborhood
favorite but Fridays dinner was nearly a disaster. Our waitress can to the table clearly flustered and it went from bad to worse. After waiting over 20 minutes for a bottle of wine our dinner arrived. Clearly the waitress was not ready to be on her own. Luckily the manager gave us a new server and comped the wine. Both The salmon and beef mafia lions dinner were delicious. The new waiter Nolan and the manager saved the night. Thank you both. We will be back."

While we enjoy eating on the
quieter, restaurant side of Ramparts, we prefer the casual style of the bar style. Sandwiches and appetizers are good, service has always been excellent, and the crowd is friendly. You don't go to Ramparts for a gourmet dining experience - you go for the neighborhood feel, the dependable and solid menu, and a fun experience - and Ramparts delivers on all three."

Went to Ramparts on a Sunday
afternoon around 3:30, and we were practically the only patrons in the place, so the service was quick and attentive! My wife had the Charleston Chicken salad, and it was absolutely huge. I finished the leftovers at dinner the following day. I had the Filet and Winter Root entree' cooked medium rare. The meat was prepared perfectly and the vegetables were delicious. Ramparts is located in a quiet spot in Fairlington. It is split between the Grill and the Tavern. I'll be going back to check out the night scene sometime."
