    My hausband and were just looking for a place to enjoy some time together. This place seemed great since it appealed to both of palates;meat and seafood. We both went with the surf and turf and it was fabulous! We will definitely be back! We were tucked at a little table near some stairs that had a lot of traffic, but it didn't seem to bother us and were just happy to be out together. It was perfect for an intimate dinner and wouldn't be good with a larger party.

    On a weekend visit to Alexandria, we enjoyed our dinner at Warehouse Bar & Grill so much on Friday night 3/21/14 that we went back Saturday night. The staff was accommodating and very hospitable. The food was excellent and the wine list was good. We especially enjoyed the Seafood Gumbo and Trout Orleans. We will definitely go back if we get the chance!

    I've taken many visitors to The Warehouse Bar & Grill because I know they will never fail to deliver an extremely satisfying dining experience. My guest had the lobster special and I had the staple surf and turf. The wait staff kept the water glasses filled the cocktails flowing and the Oysters "Uggie" were the perfect starter. We left with full tummies and will definitely be back again when the urge for perfectly prepared steak and seafood are our desire!

    We had to wait at the bar for about 20 minutes until our table was ready. Ordered the shrimp and crab beignets, which were dry; I wouldn't order again. The entree's were delicious, however. I had the Trout Orleans and he had the Creole Veal.

    The last time I was here was 15 years ago. I craved the she-crab soup and I still found it delicious. The ambience was great. It's in a townhouse space, so it's close with the level of noise that you'd expect. Service was great. The food was delicious and worth its value, even if it's pretty straightforward. A fine place to dine near the waterfront.

    A little piece of New Orleans magic happens daily in the lovely dining rooms of the Warehouse Br and Grill in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia, on scenic King Street. The she crab soup is worth the calroies for a taste treat that never disapoints, with a creamy texture and peppery aftertaste. The jumbo lumps within are sweet and fresh. It is the best I have ever tasted. Do yourself a favor and also indulge in the popcorn shrimp salad with a bright lemony finish.

    Dined on 2/21/2014
    Overall, our evening was great. This restaurant features mostly seafood, so for a "bar and grill", a diner must be prepared for non-standard bar and grill food. There are a few steak, chop, and pasta options, but it is obvious that this place is geared toward the seafood lover. The salads and the filet were quite good. The ambience and service were both very good too. We will likely return especially if we have guests who are looking forward to seafood.

    Not our first visit to this great restaurant. Previous visits for excellent dinners, this time for an excellent brunch. Very good food prepared in a reasonable amount of time with very good service. The only drawback to this location is the number of people crammed into a relatively small space, which adds to the noise level - but not intolerable.

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    I cannot believe this place was rated so highly. It failed at coming close to the flavors of New Orleans food. The food: crawfish & shrimp beignets - horrible consistency sticky/doughy (though fully cooked) and a bland taste, cajun fritto misto - nothing spectacular about this...at all. Again, the flavor was bland and I ended up eating just the zucchini because everything else was either overdone or just not to my liking. The accompanying sauces to both dishes were bad pairings. Lastly, we tried the alligator stew - the flavor wasn't bad, but my friend kept asking where the gator was because the pieces were so small & so few. Service was good, but we left after appetizers and ate our main dishes at another restaurant.

    My wife and I had dinner at Warehouse Bar and Grill the day after Valentine's Day. Warehouse is a small restaurant with tight seating, but the noise level was not an issue while we were there. The bartender did not know how to make the first two drinks we requested (google it...). I ordered a beer off the menu instead and was told that they were out. Rocky start so far...this all changed when the food started showing up. I started with the she-crab soup which was rich, slightly spicy and all around delicious. My wife had a salad which she claimed was quite good. We both ordered the surf and turf and ate every bite. The crab cakes had generous portions of lump crab and the filet mignon was cooked perfectly. Delicious cheesecake for dessert.

The fillet was tender and not over seasoned. Prices were about right. Service was adequate--sat immediately and got everything we wanted in an appropriate time. Overall, a nice night out that did not disappoint. We already want to return for the crab cakes.

    It was a nice evening, but know it has a more mature crowd. If that doesn't bother you and you don't mind spending $100+ for a dinner for 2; it's worth a visit. The steak was excellent, but the special occasion menu item (Valentine's Day) short ribs were decent. Once we were seated, the service was very good.

    Rude, and a lack of quality service. That was the immediate experience. I selected The Warehouse for what I expected to be a comfortable Valantines with my wife. Parking and driving in Old Town was tough that night due to the street conditions from the snow storm on the previous day. I called ahead to inform the host that we were on our way for our 7 pm reservation, but the traffic was at a crawl and we were looking for parking. The host stated "no problem" and we continued towards our date. Once there, we were met at the host table with nothing but "attitude" for being late for the reservation. BTW, there were many empty table throughout the night. The waiter forgot or drink order. we had them for "dessert." The food was average at best.

    Our party had the seafood sampler plate , mahi mahi and I had the horseradish encrusted salmon with lobster and sauce. It was to die for! The spinach salad was very good and the she-crab soup was delicious. I have recommended this restaurant to many people and it is our go to place in Old Town Alexandria. When many other restaurants here have come and gone the Warehouse Grill has stayed and gotten better. Not really a good place to bring kids - it is expensive but so worth it.
