Since they announced their closing, it seems the kitchen doesn't care to get the food out quickly. Our waiter was not very attentive and completely forgot things.

Sad to see this restaurant close. Always enjoyed going here and never had a bad meal.

Hopefully, Overwood was just having an off night, but on our recent visit, we were incredibly disappointed with the food. Had to send back the Brussels sprouts (an old favorite of ours from Overwood) TWICE; despite having ordered the tuna rare, it came out medium; fries were tepid and rubbery, as if they'd been sitting under a heat lamp for an extended period of time. Our server commented that the restaurant recently removed its oven, but it tasted as if everything had been microwaved. We've been going to Overwood for years, but not sure we'll ever be back. Would NOT recommend Overwood for diners looking for a good meal in Old Town Alexandria.

Can I give ten stars for service? What a nice experience. Terrific, really terrific, brunch menu. Just a neighborhood gem. I will definitely be back!

Our Waiter made the brunch so enjoyable! He was friendly, knowledgable of the menu and very attentive. We will be going back to Overwood.

Absolutely delicious. Everyone enjoyed their food and the bloody marys were amazing!

We learned that Overwood is going to become a barbecue restaurant. When we asked our server when this would happen, the server answered that staff has heard this information but only indirectly. Management needs to provide more information to staff to be able to answer customers' questions.

Low quality ingredients in salmon salad. Seated at table next to stairwell in shops outside restaurant.

The resteraunt was very full but we were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation. Service was good and friendly but waitress was stretched with a large number of tables. Food was enjoyable but average. Portions were resonable as was the value per serving and slightly less than two blocks away in King Street resteraunts. All in all a pleasant casual dining experience.

The drinks were bad, the food was sub par. The place looked nice, staff was friendly and attentive, but the food quality was poor. My wife ordered the Peachy Queen cocktail, and it tasted horrible, then her steak came out rare when she ordered medium well. My chicken BLT was dry, the fries were good. We ordered the mussels as an appetizer, tasted bland, Luke warm. Went there for a casual meal, wouldn't go back.
