Bartender made an excellent mock tail!
The food was delicious however there were two other parties in the room so we found ourselves screaming to talk. Our waitress although sassy and fun was very slow; she messed up checks even though she gave us all a number; she forgot to bring change.
Incredible food and even better service. New Years eve dinner was worth wonderful. Highly recommended.
The food was very good, starting from the Amuse all the way to the dessert!
Superb spot for Saturday/Sunday brunch. Menu has a heavy New Orleans Creole influence but has a few touches from the Chesapeake Bay mixed in. Menu choices were not extensive but balanced well so that there would be something that would appeal to anybody. Food was well prepared and not overly rich or spicy. Attentive and friendly service. Fireplaces in the dining room were crackling and were most welcome on a bitterly cold day.
Everything was very nice except my mother wanted the fried chicken & the waiter said you were out if it. She was NOT happy about that if you DON'T have an item then remove it from the menu !! Other than that everything was fine.
For Christmas dinner, 219 was chosen for its old-fashioned, quiet elegance. An added bonus was being seated in front of the roaring fire! The food was overall good, with attractive, delicious appetizers to start off the meal. All aspects of the pork dish were quite good. The tenderloin was a large, perfectly cooked portion, but it was served with unevenly cooked potatoes and carrots that hadn't picked up much of the sauce flavor. One of the plates arrived cold with the top piece of tenderloin slightly discolored. My guess was that it possibly sat under the heat lamp awaiting the other entrees. The desserts were only so-so. Fortunately the service and the atmosphere made up for any small shortcomings on the plate.
Wonderfully cozy setting. Very attentive wait staff. Delicious food and appropriate serving size.
This is definitely a restaurant deserving of recommendations and a return visit.
The food was quite good. My wife got the salmon which was excellent. I got the jambalaya which was good. Our service was a little below expectations, especially for such a quiet night (only 4 tables occupied). And the restaurant interior seems a little dated. The food was the highlight and I think the chef did a great job. It was the other stuff that made it just an average experience when it could have been excellent.
Visited for husband's 40th. Planned to do dinner before hearing the band upstairs. Definitely recommend the upstairs for music and bar. Dining room experience not as enjoyable. But, love the upstairs. Also like the basement, although we did not visit on this particualr occasion.
