Fire & Sage
Easy option for dinner but did not realize that it's a hotel restaurant.
Great service as we were 1 of 2 couples and 2 of 8 guests.
Also little to no noise which made for good conversation.
Disappointed that for a Marriot hotel felt like I was in the dining area of a comfort inn.
The service was excellent, only surpassed by the food!
Food and service were excellent but the space just felt like part of the hotel lobby so lacking in atmosphere. This would be fine for a business function or a casual dinner if a guest at the hotel.
Our server, William was great.
The food...smh, not so much.
Very nice experience.
This is a hotel restaurant, adjacent to and open to the lobby of the Marriott Hotel. The food was surprisingly good, and the service was attentive and very pleasant, but with all the wonderful places in Washington DC, I wouldn't choose a hotel lobby restaurant unless I were staying in the hotel.
For a hotel restaurant, this is pretty good. But... It's a hotel restaurant. Food is fine, better in concept than on the palate, but way overpriced. Had the rockfish, which was overdone, and beans and rice which weren't as flavorful as we had hoped. Friendly service. Ambience is... A Marriott.
Great breakfast options in the buffet. It held us well into the afternoon.
The service was excellent and the food was good. I had a Ceasar Salad with chicken so it was as good as I've had. The person I was with however, had a grilled chicken sandwich with fries and I've got to say, those were some of the best fries I've ever had. I'd go back for the fries alone!
Horrible service. No one at hostess stand to check in for 45 mins!! Thank goodness I was early and had to sit and wait for friend before checking in for reservations - others came and went because no one was at stand. You lost a lot of business because if it! Finally my friend came and we had to go into restaurant to look for someone to seat us for our reservations- crazy! Got one drink because waiter was so slow and we only gotto order once. I’ll never go back.
First time and super convenient to meet friends via Metro Center. Meaningful to have local and organic food. Burgers were great. Attentive service and best of all no rushing or pressure to eat and run by the wait staff. I will go back for lunch more often.
The food is amazing. Black beans and rice and rock fish a must-try!
Can be a nice quite place to relax after work
Always an excellent choice. The team of servers and managers are personable and attentive.
Food was mediocre and service OK. I was not checked in when I arrived and because of that OpenTable sent me email about not showing up for my reservation. I felt rushed by the waitress to get the order and ended up unhappy with our selection.
Nothing special about the food, and did not realize that this was a hotel restaurant open to the lobby. If you’re here, in a hurry, and ready for a mediocre meal, it’s for you.
food was very fresh

Good food and attentive service. Lively atmosphere. Convenient location neat Metro Center station.
Understaffed. Had to wait 5 min for host to show up then 15 min for our server to show up. Beside that staff was nice and food was decent.
Convenient and affordable place to grab a casual dinner near Metro Center. The cauliflower appetizer with grilled onions and golden raisins was delicious, as were our chicken sandwich and quinoa vegetarian burger--both served with large-cut seasoned fries. The wine list is much longer than the beer list, but they have a few local beers on tap. Our server was friendly and attentive.
Enjoyed the Seafood Paella, loaded with shrimp, mussels, clams, white fish, calamari. The roasted Brussel sprouts were fantastic as was the Butternut Risotto. Very nice dining experience, great beers and cocktails. Enjoyed our dinners.
The service was a bit slow - but overall, it was really good! I would definitely go again.
The food was sub par. The service was worse. The server didn’t refill our water glasses at all. It’s your stereotypical restaurant in a hotel.
I was a little disappointed but I did just go to the bar instead of sitting at a table.i got there early before 4:30pm and there was not a visible host to check in with.I will visit this restaurant again next time I will sit at a table. I did find the host while walking to the bar.
I'm so disappointed that the restaurant has discontinued their Happy Hour
It is located off the lobby in the Marriott Hotel. The food was good and the service was very attentive. The only issue was their computer system was not operating and the manager said once it's up he will log our reservation in. Not sure if it was done and if not how do I get the 1000 points.
Great service and great food. Tried the restaurant week menu - really enjoyed it. Our server was outstanding.
The staff must have been short handed. We felt bad for our server, but it led to a pretty underwhelming experience. Our wine didn't come to the table until our appetizers and dinners were served. The food was decent and what you would expect of a hotel restaurant. We went about an hour without being checked on and had to repeatedly get up from the table to get anyone's attention.
We were at E Street cinema for a Tuesday matinee then headed to a book event at Sixth & I -and this was a good interlude on a surprisingly pleasant early evening late July. We were welcomed and seated warmly in a place where we had a nice view of the downtown hustle bustle on 12th St- made for interesting people watching! We ordered the Southern burger -came with good traditional chips- and mushroom flatbread-which was actually a thin crust pizza- the best we have tasted outside of Italy. The wafer like crust was topped with a generous helping of mushroom and cheese- very delicious. The crowd seemed a bit casual for this downtown location- but this is a small place and probably a good choice for occasions such as ours.
I had a fantastic meal of crab cake, with fried cucumber as an appetizer. The crab cake was wonderful, surrounded by black eye peas and a yummy sauce. Plenty of food for the price. I had a wonderful, attentive waiter. If I lived in the D.C. area I would frequent here often.
Horrible...the food is bad the service is bad the location is bad not worth it at all...the servers wore Marriott shirts...stacked dirty plates in front of me on the table it was a nightmare
I chose this restaurant based on checking the menu online through OpenTable and two items stood out to me but when I got to the restaurant both those items were not on the menu anymore, that was quite disappointing. I wouldn't have gone otherwise.
Consistently good food and service at this understated hotel restaurant
Vacation day out with family. Menu had a good variety of options to choose from.
Great spot for business breakfast. Good meeting spot. Great staff and breakfast was perfect
Did not realize this was in the Marriott Lobby. Food was mediocre at best and staff the same if not worse. Completely regretted coming here.
This was good for respite from rain, but my guest and I were disappointed by the lack of fire, and sage in the restaurant. The door signs were also confusing; none directed guests to enter through the adjoining hotel. The menu is basic, but reliable. Fish and chips lacked flavor and were delivered without malt vinegar, but the hostess reacted quickly to save our tastebuds.
What could have been a nice Sunday brunch just went downhill because of our table server. The kitchen staff was on point, the waffles are GREAT, and the food was otherwise suitable if not outright good. But the table service was just lacking, unprofessional, slow and not at all attentive. I downgraded the experience accordingly. I doubt I will return without a reason like a business meeting or out of convenience for the location.
I would not recommend this restaurant. When we arrived, we asked the waiter to check us in on Open Table and they did not. We started with pretzels and cheese dip. Pretzels and cheese did not seem fresh. My husband and I ordered the chicken sandwich and it came with French fries. The chicken didn't taste good, the cheese wasn't good, and the BBQ sauce was watery. I was very disappointed in the restaurant.
I ordered a waffle for breakfast and it turned out to just be a waffle you could make from any run down roadside motel with a continental breakfast and a waffle machine. My mom got the buffet and she enjoyed it.
