Being on a busy street with an entrance that is not grand, certainly creates an impression that does not measure up to the dining experience you will soon have. The service, food, and atmosphere was simply incredible. We lingered through 4 courses and a bottle of wine being doted on and courted through each course by the staff in such a welcoming and attentive manner. This is a must visit while in DC. The food was beautifully presented and equally delicious.
