This spot never disappoints. Classic DC dining with a menu that has something for everyone! We started with oysters and enjoyed the filet and trout for dinner. You can’t lose!

It was a tragic experience. I'm not sure if it was because I had a wheelchair or because we had a child, but even with reservations made months in advance we were relegated to the "atrium" which resembled a mall food court. Waiter disappeared after taking original order. I'm so disappointed because this has always been one of my favorite spots with gorgeous art and lively ambiance. Apparently not everyone gets to have that experience.

Very nice birthday lunch celebration. We all loved ours meals; jalapeño burger, cheeseburger and turkey sandwich. Blood Mary and wine selection was great. Cool old building with lots of history. Recommend.

We ordered each course from drinks, starter thru dessert and were rushed the entire time. Also made a reservation and were set by the kitchen which was not a calm area to enjoy our food.

The Paramasen Trout was outstanding, however the spinach was extremely salty. The staff had no problem with switching it out. Overall the experience was great.

Service was excellent, wine selection was great, but food was mediocre. The filet was gristly and drenched in sauce that masked the lack of seasoning and char.

I was disappointed that the waiter didn't get the message or didn't care that this was a special occasion, celebrating my Dad's 60th birthday belated on my late grandpa's actual birthday this past Sunday.

We were in from CA to do a bucket list trip for my Dad's 60th and this was supposed to be a really special way to round out the trip. OpenTable failed to pass the message along or perhaps our waiter just didn't care because he was very bland overall. My Dad's a pretty jolly person and this individual had no interest or time in our table. The ambiance was nice, but very disappointing experience for sure.

Cramped small table for two against a wooden post. Musty odor could be smelt as soon as you went through the front door. I didn’t like the English muffin that went along with my eggs Benedict. The rest of the food was perfect. Valet use to be available during brunch, now it starts after 6pm.

A classic DC spot that combines wood paneling, polished brass and caviar with casual diners and great service. Best of both worlds - and you best grab at least 12 oysters. Love it here!

Every time I got to dc it’s my go to stop. Usually I come for crab cakes but they didn’t have it. But I didn’t even miss them with all the other yumminess. As usually great service, and it’s got that classic dc feel. Can’t be beat!
