I went there for a biz dinner
I went there for a biz dinner on a night when a band began to play, which was a mistake on my part. We had a good time, though.
All the food was prepared impeccably.

Will be back for more!
We had dinner here on a Friday evening, and were very pleased. I started with the tuna tartar, which was good, but the sauce was very limey. It overpowered the tuna, but still ok. Then I had the DM Salad which was yummy. My husband had the black and blue burger, which was awesome! I am not a burger person, and I even thought it was great. He thought it was one of the best burgers he has ever had!! The crowd was young, and most people were there for hh! Overall we were pleased, and will go back~

Excellent light meal
Food was excellent. Service was impeccable. I had tuna ceviche appetizer and salmon on wilted spinach that was cooked perfectly. My husband had the rack of lamb.
Be advised the pricing is rather high for the quantity served. We eat out frequently & I don't like heavy or wasteful plates. This was the opposite. Plates were around $28 and meals were very small - looked more like tapas. My piece of salmon looked like a small half piece. Lamb pieces are normally not large; however these were small and thinly cut. Not a problem Bc we left feeling satisfied, not stuffed. The burger ordered by someone else also looked small for a gourmet burger, though he said it was delicious. The lamb shank was a full size meal.

The food here was great, although
The food here was great, although not perfect. Ok, the oxtail spring rolls were perfect. I just had food envy when my buddy ordered lamb and I went wrong with mushroom ravioli. I went with a group of friends and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Wine by the glass was a decent selection and at a good price. Also, there were quite a few options for scotch drinkers. The nightclub up on the roof was fun. Not the hottest scene in town, but a really great DJ, cheap drinks, and admission is free if you have dinner in the restaurant. I would recommend this place for a casual night out with a date or for dinner with friends because of the option to go up to the club after your meal.

So the name of this restaurant
So the name of this restaurant made us think it would be a dark “pubby” type establishment. We could not have been more wrong. The restaurant is modern, the food and service were great. The liqueur (esp. the Scotch selection) is extensive. The guys in our party ordered full meals and thought hey were great. The girls ordered a large selection of small plates that we shared. It was all wonderful. We highly recommend the Tuna Tartar tostados and the ceviche was fabulous. The boys gave rave reviews for the lamb and the saffron stew.
The location is in the heart of DuPont. The management made a personalized and very friendly stop by every table to check on the food, We’ll be back!

First time there. I will definitely go again! A bit pricey, but still good.

The manager greeted us and the staff were polite and friendly. The food was great and I plan to visit again.

i loved this place
I was expecting it to be noisier based on the reviews so I was hesitant. It seems the bar scene is upstairs there. we had an incredible meal in a tasteful environment that didn't feel like a "bar". really nice booths, intimate, incredible food. The server was weak, but the food was amazing and more than made up for it.

Group had a great time
Food was very good. Think short staffed because the waiter was lagging behind. Took a long time between courses but we were there to dine so was not too big of a deal. Was worth the wait because everyone was happy with their meals, drinks and desserts

Chic, aims to please
First time here. Excellent tuna ceviche, wonderfully flavorful, as was the bruschetta. Salads were decent but the arugula was not exceptional. The menu looks very interesting. What impressed was the decor (chic and trendy) and the service. We ordered a bottle of Reisling (German) but it was not in stock. So we were given tastes of another. Then offered no less than three other bottles of comparable price. The manager's suggestion was excellent. They were really accomodating. Our server was very helpful, friendly but not intrusive. We will return to try the main selections. There is a covered patio out front. Unfortunately not many people in the restaurant this night. In spite of its unattractive name, it's an attractive find!

a lively place with good food
Very good food (not generally expected for a bar), excellent service on par with very good restaurants (again not generally expected for a bar). Energetic ambiance (expected for a popular bar).

we were celebrating a friends
we were celebrating a friends birthday, and she loved it. Food was great, service was prompt, and efficient. Drinks were different, their take on the classics, but tasty. Ambiance was beautiful, but noisy. Overall we enjoyed it very much. We would go back next time we're in town.

If you have a celebration for younger people this is a place to go. Food consistently good, drinks excellent and service friendly. A little noisy but it is what you would expect in this envoronment.

Used a living social deal
Used a living social deal that included two martinis, appetizer, entree and dessert for $60. It was a fabulous meal. I had the mac & cheese appetizer, which was just the right size, and a very good steak. The Napoleon for dessert was good, though not as outstanding as the rest of the food. I think I would have thought I had overpaid a little if we hadn't had the living social deal, but not more than most similar restaurants in this area.

From top to bottom my wife and I had a great experience at this establishment. Very chic/modern design/decor, great service, fantastic food, very tasty drinks and if you are looking for some fun after the meal this place is right in the middle of some nice club locations including their own upstairs lounge/club area.
Highly, highly recommend. Ravi, our server was warm and professional and they take the time to make you feel welcome!

Love this little spot. Have been here a few times and every time has been phenomenal. We will definitely be back. Awesome date spot. Inventive martinis (yummmm) Delicious food. We will be back.

What a place!
Excellent food. Went during restaurant week (08/23/2013) for dinner. The restaurant has wonderful lounge and seating areas. I came dressed in linen shorts and a polo, but the atmosphere of DM - I would say, warrants something more dressy. I highly recommend this restaurant for couples and groups!!!

Short on Martinis
I had expected a lengthier list of options for this restaurant's namesake. Nonetheless, we weren't disappointed by the steaks and wine. An excellent place to visit in the Dupont neighborhood, especially later in the evening. We had a pre-show dinner just around 6pm on a Saturday and the place was mostly emptied, with only a few scattered tables occupied. We returned to the area after 10pm and the bar scene was much more vibrant. I would recommend late dinner and/or drinks at this restaurant for its loft-like atmosphere.

Staff was great!!
Staff were superb maybe it's because we knew the manager but overall they were great. Make sure to try the salmon dish.

Fun atmosphere and very good food!
I booked a reservation here because it was 1,000 points and I had never tried it before. The drinks were great and there were plenty of food options for a gluten-free diner. I will definitely go back!

With some private event on the second floor, the sound level was pretty high. Add to that, smoke wafted in from the smokers at the outdoor section.
The food however, was excellent. As was the service.
We'll certainly go again.
