Ingredients are listed for their foods, however not all ingredients are listed. For example as an appetizer we ordered the Bourbon Street Flatbread which on the menu listed the following ingredients: Andouille Sausage, Peppers, Cajun Chicken, and Fontina Cheese. However there was no mention of onions or celery. We sent the flatbread back because of this and asked for a new flatbread without onions. 20 minutes later a second flatbread was brought out but it was a completely different flatbread. We then had to send that one back as well. Another 20 minutes later the correct flatbread without onions had been sent. Of course by this time everyone had finished their meals and were ready to pay. Although the manager was quite friendly and attentive, our waitress was not. In the end, we were still charged for the flatbread.
It was a Friday night and the place was pretty dead. The host didn't understand what OpenTable was and just tried to sit us. We skipped the empty dining area and sat at the bar instead. The bar was understaffed and had to wait with empty glasses each time. Our food was slow to come but tasted well.
Everything was great; our server was greater than great. Food was good; drinks were excellent.
The only down-side: the chef does not easily understand "rare" and "well done," so if you care, take a little extra time with your fine server and ask him/her to make clear to the kitchen what you want.
Service was terrible and food was mediocre
We have ATR another try, even after being totally ignored last time. But two picky kids and a desire to see sports on TV limits choices, even in Bethesda. Waiter was nice but quite interested in his personal phone which he checked constantly. We sat in booth near kitchen and watched as our food got cold. And man, was it cold. I think they simply can’t find good help, but they won’t be getting any more money out of us.
Nice atmosphere, but food came out wrong three different times! Made for a very disjointed meal. Manager comped my entree but ruined the experience of eating out.
My food was under cooked, not the best service. I would not recommend this place.
Food quality was extremely poor.
Aside from the overall food quality, one of our party asked for hot water and what was served was a brownish liquid that looked like it had been through a coffee filter.
Easy dinner spot with a nice opportunity to enjoy the evening at the sidewalk tables.
