We had dinner a the Tysons Corner, VA location on 5/24/2022. The food, ambiance, and service were all great. However, this is my fourth time celebrating a special occasion at this location, and noticed the attire of the customers was inappropriate for the establishment. While we were dressed in business attire, we noticed the customers were wearing cut-up faded denim, t-shirts, sneakers, etc. I felt like we were the ones out of place We love eating at this establishment but we may not return again. We hope to get a response to our comment.

All staff was friendly, helpful, cheerful. We stayed a long time for lunch, dining outside. I think I left appropriate gratuity for tying up table so long. I mentioned we were celebrating my friend's retirement, so they comped a small serving bubbly. I hate to give average marks for food. Everything says to give restaurants a break due to covid-19, economy, etc, so you decide. My meal was nice. Fried green tomatoes, mushroom strudel, salad. My friends lobster roll ($19) was embarrassingly small. Small roll, not even 1/2 cup lobster salad. She didn't say if it were good. So ambience on canal was wonderful, staff energetic and welcoming but sad to see the food not as I remember. I will go back, if only to support them. They've been one of the gems in Frederick.

Lovely four-course seasonal tasting meal was a happy find during a business trip to Middleburg. The place retains a colonial character inside which is not inspiring but that wasn't why we were there. The serving staff was extremely professional and helpful. The food was not delicious and delightfully prepared. Nice selection of wine to complement. Highly recommend.
