    This restaurant has the best view and didn't seem very crowded, we were there on a Monday night. My Mom said it was the best lobster mac-n-cheese dish she had ever had. We also had my 2 and 10 month old daughters with us and they were treated perfectly! Overall the menu was good, but the atmosphere and staff pushed me to give this restaurant a 5 star review. It would be a wonderful place to meet up for drinks during sunset or a great date night. Added bonus that they are kid friendly, no kids menu, but they were willing to give my daughter pasta and butter! I'm fortunate because my girls are good eaters!

    The menu is not expansive, but that can be a good thing since it's not overwhelming and that usually assures the freshness of the ingredients and that the plates that they do have are done well. The plates that we had were all good and the portions appropriate. The menu I found to be seafood oriented, with a couple of good steaks(maybe,we didn't have them)I did find it a bit overpriced,especially for the type of cuisine that it is.It is upscale American fare, but a $30 plate of pasta is kind of over what I would be looking to pay.I do think that this is mainly due to the location and view.It has an amazing view of the National Harbor's waterfront,with floor to the second floor ceiling windows.

    The menu looked interesting & the setting is attractive, but it was not a good experience. Our server took our orders pretty quickly, but we then waited a long time for the food. My (lukewarm) coffee came out a good 10 minutes after I ordered. When the food arrived, all 3 orders were wrong. A medium steak came out well done. A tuna burger described as served on mixed greens with grilled onion relish came out on a bun with lettuce, tomato and tartar sauce. A medium burger came out well done with a side of cold fries. The "replacement" burger was the same burger that had been sent back to the kitchen, apparently warmed up. A side dish of fruit cost $10. The manager removed the charge for the burger, but could have done more. Not worth it.

    this experience was above average. it is a beautiful restaurant and the view is fantastic. the food, for what we paid, was good but not exquisite. also, the service was slow and poor. we had to ask to have our dirty plates/glasses removed from the table several times even though it was not that busy. even though i love the location, would probably not dine here again.

    We came to Sauciety on a Saturday night - the restaurant was empty although National Harbor was very busy. We had to send our drinks back twice and appetizer (mussels in white wine sauce) were very poor. I would not recommend for any situation - very disappointing. Our server was nice, but that didn't make up for the lack of decent food & drink!

    We couldn't find a place in Old Town, VA, where our church is located, to eat brunch after early service. Sauciety was open and had reservations available. We were very pleased with the brunch options -- they had waffles, pancakes (a must for my 3 year old daughter), and eggs Chesapeake. They also served bellinis (although they were oddly not listed on the menu). The service wasn't stellar -- we had to wait for some time before our server acknowledged us -- but it wasn't bad. The woman at the service booth wasn't very friendly -- I didn't see her smile once. But those things aside, we will likely dine at this restaurant again for brunch and may even try it out for dinner one night.

    This is one of the best kept secrets at National Harbor. I do not usually book gatherings at a hotel restaurant, but I have had my mind changed. I need a reservation at a particular time on a Tuesday night , and both my first and second choice at NH were booked. I decided to take a chance with Sauciety and I was very impressed. I will honestly say that Sauciety has moved up my list. Great food and the best view for dinner in the Harbor. What a great experience

    There was only one other party in the dining room so the large room felt very empty. This allowed the two waiters to be very attentive and when our dinner was served, we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Warm rtoasted garlic bread with a pesto dipping sauce was brought to our table while we looked at the menu. My son had a thick cut pork chop and I had the swordfish both grilled perfectly and very moist. Generous portions of sides were served---garlic mashed potato with the chop and fried rice with the fish. We would recommend dining here!

    My husband and I dined here for NYE 2014. We received excellent customer service from our waitress, Mirna. At first I was upset because I wanted to order from the original menu that's posted on their website but they had a special menu for NYE. My husband and I were about to leave but Mirna went the extra mile to bring us a different menu from the bar. After talking more, we decided to stay and order from the NYE menu. The food was wonderfully, delicious and the customer service was outstanding! We will definitely be back!

    Nice view, but overall the service was not good. I arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation, and before the rest of my party. I mentioned that I had a reservation. The hostess looked annoyed from the moment I approached the stand. She also said she couldn't seat me until the entire party arrived, and that they were "changing over" so it would be a few minutes anyway. She pointed to the waiting area. There were plenty of empty tables, though. Our waiter was good (Taneisha), and truthfully she is the only reason we had an OK brunch. The hostess/manager didn't seem too happy the entire time we were there. Food was OK - but not great. Again, the view is nice.

    The 'Hostess' was rude and totally devoid of any semblance of graciousness. The waiter was excellent and provided exceptional service. Bloody Mary was good quality. Two of us had the trio of Eggs Benedict, which arrived cold with eggs hard boiled, rather than hot and runny. Curiously, what passed for Hollandaise sauce (poor quality) came on the side in a small container adequate for only half of the trio of muffins. The English muffins were not toasted or heated. One diner had the Steak Sandwich; another had the Crabcake sandwich; both were satisfactory. The French Fries looked good but did not arrive hot. Indeed, nothing was hot that should have been. Bottom line: Sunday Brunch at Sauciety is NOT recommended.

    Went for a late Sunday brunch around 1pm with my parents that stayed at Nat'l Harbor. Was expecting a lot more, given the high reviews. Service was slow, but I can forgive that given that there didn't seem to be many staff still working bit backwards from DC where that hour is busy eggs benedict with a side of breakfast potatoes, which had no hollandaise sauce; it was super bland, with the canadian bacon being nearly inedible. The potatoes were ok. Grits (which came out cold & to much garlic) and french toast which was fine. Omelet - nothing special, came out behind the other food, and cold despite the delay. A chicken parm sandwich was ok, so maybe it's just the brunch food that's not good. Overall, wouldn't recommend for brunch at all.

    The food was good, but would have been a lot more enjoyable had it not taken an hour to come out. Literally, it was an hour before our entrees arrived, and we ended up being 15 minutes late to our show (Cavalia) as a result. We couldn't enjoy our food because we needed to stuff ourselves as fast as possible. The wait staff was very nice and apologetic, but I will not return because of that experience.

    Food was excellent! We got the 3 course price fixe and the chef was even willing to substitute the main entree for the special catch. Our server was attentive, but would disappear for long periods of time. The restaurant was literally empty - We just couldn't understand why! Restaurant was right on the water with gorgeous views. While the restaurant is called Sauceiety, they don't focus on sauces anymore? Odd. We asked the server about the "Sauces" and if sauces came with our meal... He hesitated and seemed confused, but then brought out 3 dipping sauces, which were tasty. We would return, but suggest the restaurant figure out its identity -- are you serving sauces with meals or are you just called Sauciety for no good reason?

    Staying at hotel and local family joined us for brunch. Excellent food with great choices and great kid's menu. Service was professional, friendly and attentive. I had a delicious shrimp and crab omelet that was fantastic. Grandson enjoyed his french toast and remainder of family all had steak salad which was wonderful. Great coffee also. This is one of the better hotel restaurants I have eaten at and because I travel a lot I eat at a lot of hotels.

    I met a friend here for brunch. The hostess was less than enthusiastic when I arrived, but our server was very nice and attentive. The decor is very modern and has grand windows facing the Marina at the National Harbor. It was a lovely way to spend a Sunday brunch. My girl friend got a crab cake and I chose a burger and we had no complaints about our meal. Food was fine, just nothing to brag about.

    I had the restaurant to myself on a recent Wednesday evening, which was great for my party (the service was outstanding) but unfortunate for the staff. It was an ugly, rainy night during the shutdown and we were told that more meals was being ordered for room service than at the restaurant. Food was very good; especially the lobster and bacon sliders and Moroccan lamb chops. The wine list had a lot to be desired, however. A small selection of very pedestrian wines. The ambiance is a little cavernous, but probably made more so by the lack of other diners. Definitely recommended for an evening at National Harbor.

    When we arrived we were skeptical because there was only one other table of people dining in the restaurant. Fortunately that made the two servers on staff really attentitive. Menu was slightly limited, heavy with fish dishes. My girlfriend got the vegetable Napoleon and said it was amazing. Well seasoned and expertly grilled. I had the grilled samon and it was cooked perfectly , not dry, well seasoned. It was really enjoyable despite the emptyness of the restaurant, and it would have to say it is one of the only "fine dining" establishments outside of the Gaylord convention center in National Harbor.
