Sixth Engine Restaurant
Interesting restaurantThis is an interesting restaurant with its location in a historic DC firehouse. The menu is not extensive but the food is delicious. My family and I had a fun time here, and the service was excellent.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday celebrationparty of 8 for birthday great variety of drinks food very enjoyable. went to the bar after dinner, very good vibe also. thanks we'll be back5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day brunchMy family came in to visit this weekend from out of town for Mother's Day and I took them to sixth engine for brunch on Sunday. None of us had ever been there but I will certainly be going back. The food was delicious and drinks strong. My mother is an eggs Benedict connoisseur who orders them whenever and wherever we go to breakfast, and said these were probably the best she has ever had. No complaints. Great food, cool decor, friendly staff.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat menu, good drinksmy shandy was the perfect late morning drink...lots of good choices on the brunch menu, expected more flavor from the virginia ham used in my egg dish, though. overall the food could have been better seasoned, something is needed to punch up the flavor.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeware of slim lunch selectionLet me start by saying that I love Sixth Engine -- for dinner. However, if you visit them at say 2 p.m. on a Saturday and don't want to re-eat breakfast, the options are really limited.
Sixth Engine -- I want to eat lunch at your restaurant! Please move some of the dinner items to the earlier menu!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for a pre-Caps gameWe went for a pre-Caps game dinner and drinks and it turned out to be a good choice. The service was truly excellent. We were inside on the second floor which is very cavernous but not echo-y so you don't have to hear the neighboring conversations. The music level was appropriate and not too loud. The pre-meal, chips are like kettle cooked Munchos and we all thought they were great. Had burgers and pork tenderloin which were both very good. They tend to cook the burgers a little lighter than usual so medium well is closer to medium but it was fine. Probably one of the better burgers I've had in DC (best in the area is Alewife in Balto). Had little sugar cookies with the cheque which I thought was a nice touch.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of fun cocktails andLots of fun cocktails and a great time for a group! I had hush puppies (YUM!) and a steak and house salad. All delicious!!! The Mass Ave 75 is my favorite cocktail!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst decent day of springFirst decent day of spring in DC and we had reservations for dinner.
