The restaurant is connected to the Hilton Hotel. So the atmosphere is that of a hotel bar and dining spot. The food was very good. I had a Bistro steak and my wife had the crap pot pie. Both of the foods as well as the salad were tasty. It is not a restaurant I would go out of my way for but if you are near by and need a place to sit, relax and eat. This will work.

The service was awful. I had to remind the waiter we were waiting on every little thing. I don’t understand why when there was only one other party in the whole restaurant.

Absolutely miserable experience. I get it that it is a hotel bar/resturaunte and everything, but even with a reservation our table wasn't ready despite not having any costumers, brunch menu ends way to early, the service was extremely slow, and the food was not good.

Went for brunch and wasn't disappointed. It was not overly packed and the service was good. There was food options there for the kids as well and the price point was really good based on what they had. I will definitely be back.

The actual place didn’t look like the pictures that were shown on open table. Food was good, service was good in some cases and lacking in other areas. What they did wrong, they made up for it in other areas. For causal dinning, it would be ok, for any special dinning, not the place. Kind of a bar and a place to eat all mixed up together.

Service and food was great, but it was frustrating that I didn't receive my points from Open Table. I chose the restaurant and time slot because of the 1,000 point bonus. Somehow I didn't get checked in properly, and my points never did show up. After I called the restaurant, the manager came up with a solution; however, I got 100 points in my account instead of the 1,000. Emailed Open Table and they suggested I wait a week to see if it gets credited. I'm thinking that's unlikely.

Just chose this at random while in town. The restaurant is in THe Hilton and off the hallway in the hotel where there is also common area and a Starbucks. That being said the food and service was good. Ambience lacked.

Everything we ordered at our table was great. My wife had some kind of seafood pot pie which she said was delicious. I don't eat seafood, but she loves it. I had the fish and chips. Fish is different than seafood, I know what you're thinking. It was great, I had to ask for the malt vinegar, but when I did the waitress brought it quickly. Our friends had the Rueben sandwich a flatbread pizza and a cobb salad. The only complaint was that the menu listed romaine lettuce in the Cobb salad and it was a mix of greens without any romaine.

My wife and I came here for the first time on a Thursday night for her birthday. We had our choice of seating which was a quiet table in the corner. There were maybe two other couples and some friends in the restaurant. Our server was Melissa and she was very attentive in a good way. Not over bearing and very friendly.

The food was amazing! We started with the beer cheese fondue. It was awesome. For dinner my wife had the fish and chips which she raved about. Very fresh and filling. I had the bruh mac and cheese. It was very filling and the portion was great. I don't do the extra fancy.

We also had a drink each and all together with our appetizer and dinner it came to like 60 bucks which we thought was extremely reasonable considering the location and portions.

I could see how parking could be weird since its in the bottom of a hotel, but at the same time since its at the top of king street it wasn't a big deal trying to find something.

We will def be back!

The service wasn't very good... Ordered a bottle of wine and it came out with a glass that was fresh out of the dishwasher and was still soaking wet and still had lipstick marks all over the rim. I mentioned this to the service and she continued corking the wine and left the open bottle on the table. She brought back a new glass and sat it there.... No tasting, and walked away.
So, it's safe to say that the server needs to learn how to properly serve a bottle of wine!
She walked away and we still wanted to order appetizers, but we had to wait for her to come back. All the while she was just standing at the bar, looking around, doing nothing.

At least the food was good... We really liked everything we ordered.

But we definitely didn't appreciate the bad service.

This restaurant is awful! First, the front desk stated the parking is validated since the restaurant is inside the hotel. Then, the manager said it was not. The calamari were sagging in the batter and the wings were just heated up with some buffalo sauce on top of them. Overall, DON'T GO TO THIS RESTAURANT!!!!!!

Four of us went here for what we thought would be brunch at 1pm on a Sunday. The restaurant is in a hotel, and we were the only people there. We were handed lunch menus, but we asked if they could do eggs benedict. The chef agreed, but everything was lackluster. Also, seeing that we were the only ones there you would think we would have amazing service, but the waiter was no where to be found and split the check wrong once we did find him. The one person who had the fried chicken and mashed potatoes was happy. Too many good restaurants in Old Town to bother with this.

This place is located outside of the lobby of the Hilton Hotel. Very open environment, kind of place where you are not sure where the lobby ends and the tavern begins. Tavern is kind of not an accurate name for this setting. Food was good tavern food. I had a burger with added beef brisket on top. Very tasty. My brother had fish and chips. Service was good and attentive. large selection of beers, but only a few on tap.

King Street Tavern was the perfect place to have an adult family dinner for an early Christmas dinner get together . The waitress was outstanding, the food was REALLY good. A little pricey for the amount of food, but certainly a place to go back to.

A rainy night encouraged me to stay in the hotel for dinner and this restaurant receives some rather good reviews. I explained to my server that I was trying to choose between the macaroni and cheese with crab add on, or the Maryland crab pot pie. He encouraged me to go with the pot pie since it came with a salad. Unfortunately, the salad was the best part of the meal (and, it was actually quite good). The pot pie tasted mostly of crust and even with the crust removed the filling was quite bland. I suspect my experience was more a faulty food choice than restaurant choice, and I will be more careful on future rainy nights when other Alexandria restaurants are not easily accessible.

I think this restaurant has a great bar going for it and that's exactly what the food is - bar food. We ordered the wings which were fatty and smothered in bbq sauce. Not good. We shared a cobb salad. It was not the freshest of ingredients. Wish I good say we enjoyed, but we did not. Will not return.
