Server wasn't very knowledgeable or attentive. Meals uneven - ordered Medium Well burger for kids-split in half so chef could easily see how it was tone served and it was bleeding in center. Salads were great. Bread tasty. Drink prices too high.

This is a great place for lunch as well as a nice casual place for supper. It has a small menu, but they change the preparation and ingredients regularly. The smoked deviled eggs are great and I really enjoyed the flavors of the spring vegetables that accompanied the crab cakes.

The service was very slow and the restaurant was not completely full. For a "wine" bar, it too forever to get our wine. Our appetizer came before our wine. The food selection wasn't great. I had a hard time finding something I wanted to order to eat. I ended up with the chicken because nothing else appealed to me. It was very boring and disappointing. We won't be going back. :(

We made a reservation at 9.30pm, but by 10.15 they were clearly in a rush to collect payment. If not good service can be assured the rest should not take late reservations. We wanted to stay and relax with a glass of wine but felt pressed all the time to do it fast. On the contrary, food was excellent!

Nice atmosphere, somewhat limited menu, ok service and ok food. Went for 6:30 weekend dinner. Server was polite, the hamburger was hugged! and good. The crab cake was ok but had nothing close to lumps (they weren't promised) and was stark: no sauce, little accompaniment.

I've been here before and the one thing that fell apart this time was the service. It took a while to get our drinks, and our main courses arrived after a long wait and before our appetizers. The restaurant was very nice and took the appetizers off the bill, but it had been a long day and this was not how we wanted to end it. I think - hope - it was a one-time glitch. The food is always terrific. I'll go back, and I recommend it.

deviled eggs, truffled fries are delicious. Meat cooked perfectly. Handmade pasta. Attention to detail. Sauces are excellent. Suggestions: Needs some more grilled or non-fried foods, more interesting veggies. Side dish of salad was sparse. Noise level could be reduced.

We have been to this restaurant many times and considered it to be a reliable family favorite. Our last experience on Mother's Day was very disappointing. The service was extremely erratic, and the food was well below average. Even the staff at the front desk seemed to be completely disinterested in providing a positive guest experience.

Make a booking if you want to be sure to be seated in the back-end room (midway between a cellar & a library). Atmosphere is really good and excellent service. Our waiter was great on suggestions for the wines as well as for the food.
I recommend the Steak (truffle sauce) and the Octopus !!!
Desert were great : K-lime creme brûlée and Rum Cake.

Wines : we tried the Chianti and the Tuscany (by the glass) Both were just excellent.

The food is consistently good here. This time we wanted a good burger and a place to watch the Caps game. Food Wine & Co filled the bill perfectly and we were able to get a last minute table on a Saturday night at 8:30. It's lively without being crazy loud and crowded.

Service was very friendly and food came quickly, but then the waiter kind of disappeared. We had to track him down to get the check.
