    We went to Redstone American Grill to celebrate a graduation. We started by ordering a round of drinks and the cornbread for an appetizer. After about 15 minutes we still had no drinks. After speaking to our waitress she said the order was in and they were coming. Fifteen more minutes passed when the waitress came out and said the reason our drinks had not arrived was because they were out of the drinks ordered. Instead of giving us the remaining drink orders and telling us the situation, they just avoided our table. Th cornbread showed up and it did not disappoint. However, we still did not have our drinks at this point. At this point we ordered dinner. I would love to give a positive review of our dinner, but we never received our food. Our waitress came out twice to tell us our food was coming right out and each time we did not see her again for about 20 minutes. After an hour and a half of waiting we still had no food. We made the decision to pay for the drinks and app and cut our losses and eat somewhere else. After the decision was made to leave we asked to speak to a manager. She was not apologetic, nor was our waitress at any point in the night. The food situation was not as big of a deal to us as the lack of anyone being honest with us about the backup. Common courtesy goes a long way and this restaurant just did not come through for us.

    Friends wanted to get together and this restaurant was the easiest option. I knew going in that there wouldn't be much for me to eat, and I was right. The only thing for a vegan to eat was a house salad and a side or two. This restaurant has a special gluten-free menu (at least 6 items) and since gluten-free and vegan diets are becoming more popular, I would have thought there would have bee more options. I asked our server if they could make a margherita flatbread pizza without cheese, but with added mushrooms, and they were able to do it and it tasted good. The hostess staff were very friendly and our server was friendly and helpful. He mentioned he's been a server for 17(?) years. You could tell. I would go again in the summertime for drinks only and the view.

    Very good dining experience once you get past the hostess station. This is the second time I've made reservations for a business lunch and after arriving on time, had to wait until the hostesses finished their protracted conversation before being acknowledged and seated. The management really needs to address this problem.

    Went here and ordered a house salad, seared ahi tuna, and the 16oz NY strip. Service was excellent, and the steak is up there for the best I've had in my life. The ahi tuna was great and seared just enough. The Asian slaw on which it was served had an excellent taste. Fairly large wine list and a full bar to boot. There's an outdoor seating area and a gas fire pit. It is pricey, but as a time to celebrate or just a night out every once in a while, the prices are justifiable.

    My experience at Redstone was very poor and the manager Christina was rude and unapologetic when I complained that the cook sent a message through my waitress that reheating the food I sent back because it was cold was "the best that they could do for me." The manager took her time enjoying her meal at a table across from me and my friend before she decided to come to our table only to reinforce the rudeness of the kitchen. I did not have dinner at the restaurant because the manager was the rudest I have ever experienced.

    National harbour touts itself as a destination resort, but not everyone who goes there is NOT a tourist. Please encourage the hostesses to be more attentive when greeting and serving guests. My reservation for six included mostly older adults; we were promptly seated in a very dark area of the restaurant, you had to put on your glasses just to read the menu (at mid day) . The hostess refused to move us to another (brighter area) even though there was seating available near the windows. The manager finally moved us, but it seemed as though it was a hassle. Our waitress, on the other hand, was excellent. The hostesses.....not so good

    My star rating pretty much tells the story. Server was between very good and excellent. Noise level is high but I wouldn't call it "energetic" otherwise ambiance would be excellent. The 4" tall chocolate layer cake was amazing! Yes, I'd go back but too pricey for a week night dinner. Keep this on tap for special occasions.

    A few friends and I met for dinner at Redstone Grill at the National Harbor. The waiter was very pleasant and well versed on the dinner specials, as well as, the restaurant’s full menu. The wait time was less than expected; and the food delicious. I ordered a burger and requested the meat cooked well done (no pink); and the burger was cooked to perfection!

    Maybe just not a breakfast/brunch winner. Our server, Leigh, was lovely and competent, yet my simple request for an English Muffin was delivered incorrectly from the kitchen. I ordered scrambled eggs and felt they may have been scooped off the buffet vs. made to order. My husband said the hash browns were sticky - just too much added to them. We would not return.

    I've been to Redstone a couple times now and they seem to be inconsistent. They couldn't get the temperature right on my steak after 3 times the first time I visited for dinner, but they got my wife's ribs just right. But the two times I've gone for lunch (specifically burgers), I've been blown away. I'd say Redstone is my favorite burger in the DC area, and their fries are among the best I've had too. Start off with the cornbread, it'll change your world. I can't recommend any of the desserts as ground breaking, but they're not bad either. Service was great on this last visit, very attentive and accommodating. I will be coming back again.

    We were celebrating my Honey's birthday, and really enjoyed the experience. Redstone's staff was great--from the reception desk to the bar to the server and manager. We sat at the outside bar for cocktails before dinner. The bartender checked in with us to make sure we enjoyed our cocktails and talked to us about his technique to make it just right. For dinner, our server was very sweet, attentive and engaging. We both enjoyed the walleye prepared in different ways. The manager came over to check on us, and she was delightful. For dessert, my Honey's asked for bread pudding (a restaurant fav) and it was brought over with ice cream and fireworks! Really festive. We will definitely go back!

    This is a nice new spot in the National Harbor. The ambiance was great for a Monday night. We were seated quickly. We were told we would have one waiter and he never showed up and we wound up being waited on by someone else. Our alternate server was sweet, but it was just weird. Anyhow... on to the food, it was great. Sirloin was juicy and cooked to order. Garlic Mashed Potatoes were great! Crab Cakes were good, not great. For this area they need to be great to get a rave review, but they were worth ordering because they weren't overdone with filler. We'd definitely go back and try other things on the menu.

    While the food was great the service left something to be desired. It took 20 minutes to get our first drink. The server did not know stop talking once we were ready to order he just get going. When we were ready to go he didn't listen when we all asked for the check. Despite the service the food was excellent and worth the visit.

    We went to Redstone for a birthday lunch and the experience was excellent. The ambiance is upscale and comfortable. I love the smell of the wood stove that permeates the restaurant. The water views are spectacular, the food is excellent and the service is excellent as well. The restaurant is fairly expensive so this is a great place to go for special occasions and group events. I highly recommend it.
