We had a group of 5 celebrating a birthday. While we were there to celebrate and enjoy a great meal, a table in the bar was obnoxiously loud the entire time we were there, nearly 3 hours. We were seated for almost an hour before we were provided bread and it took almost 45 minutes to get the first drinks ordered and it wasn't extremely crowded. The appetizers were fairly quick once our order was taken, but the food then took nearly another 45 minutes afterwards. The service seemed very slow to us. The drinks, bread, appetizers, main course, and dinner were all extremely delicious and well presented. For the price, the service could be improved.
Rowdy and loud. Not a good place for dinner for two. We were seated next to a large group and asked to move. Manager did not move us even though there were several open tables in the back of the restaurant. Hugely disappointing experience.
Did not know what to expect, and was delighted by the experience. The food was excellent. I took some food home, opened the box, and found an extra small loaf of bread included. The server was terrific. And of course I did not know how good he was until I opened the take home box in the privacy of my home. Brabo is the kind of experience you want to have over and over again.
Compliments to the Chef! Radish board is excellent and the poached halibut is the best halibut I have ever had. Definitely recommend dining here.
The food was amazing, which helped but could not entirely make up for the bad service. It took over an hour for us to get our food after we ordered. We asked a couple of times for an update and kept being told “it is right behind me” but then waited another 10+ minutes until we asked again. It took over 20 minutes to get our drinks and when we asked questions about the menu, the waitress told us she didn’t know what was on the menu and would need to ask someone. We never got the answers to our questions. As much as I enjoyed the brunch food itself, I don’t think we’ll go back. There’s plenty of other restaurants with great food and much better service in the area.
The food was exceptional, the service was very attentive and courteous, and the atmosphere was quite pleasant. My wife and I were very happy with our decision to spend a belated Valentine's dinner there.
Great spot. Amazing food.
Had not been here for a bit. It did not disappoint. The food was incredible. For appetizers we had crudités and tomatoe soup. For entres we had scallops and haddock. All were excellent. The flavors were a delight. Our waiter Nigel was attentive and entertaining. Let us taste 2 wines before deciding on a bottle. The experience was perfect. We will definitely be back soon!
HASAN was professional and courteous. Great personality. GREAT SERVICE!!!!
A group of dined on Valentine's Day together and had the special. The food was decent although the portion was small. The service, however, was downright awful. Our waiter, a middle-aged individual, was rude, curt and inconsiderate. He rushed through our orders and was brusque each time he interacted with us. At one point he carried a glass of wine to one in our party with his thumb stuck inside the wine glass. This is a sure way to ruin the reputation of an otherwise decent restaurant.
Food was innovative and special, and very tasty - but the real standout was the cocktail program. The menu was extensive, both unique and classic drinks, including a whole page of egg-white drinks, which are my favorite. The bartender was very talented; the Vieux Carre was better than in New Orleans! I will be back on my next trip to the DC area.
Worth the extra expense if you wish to receive an outstanding dining experience
Overall, the food was delicious, but the bok choy was very salty so couldn't finish. Also, the quince dessert was not impressive. The quality of the meat was excellent and loved the cocktail menu, very classy and comprehensive.
Service can improve.
Very well done! The modern decor is tasteful, yet cozy. The food & drinks met our expectations.
Always excellent food, wonderful wine list. One of our favorites. Cosmo the server lives up to his name and Jose has enlarged the wine list in an amazing way.
The ambience is great for a date, a special occasion or a business meal. The prices are not cheap for the meals offered., especially considering many do not come with a side. The steak frites was wonderful and the fries equally as good. The baby chicken was a bit bland. I felt the menu could have benefited from some salad options for starters and perhaps another fish like salmon. Our waiter was not very attentive and we felt was rude at times and bordered on condescending. All in all I would give it another visit, especially considering there isn’t an abundance of solid restaurants in the Old Town neighborhood/ on King St.
The waiter was very slow and acted very odd. Food was okay not excellent.
We got there and our table was ready and waiting which is always great.
Great Food and Service, definite find.
Loud, service started out slow.
Restaurant week menu was okay compared to other restaurants
Excellent meal. One of the best places to dine in Northern Virginia/DC area. Highly recommend this restaurant, particularly for a special occasion.
I decided to bring my date here to celebrate her birthday. I was a bit apprehensive at first after reading a few yelp reviews however, this place really exceeded my expectations. The food was AMAZING! The staff was exceptional and attenteded to our every need. Everyone really made this night special. I will definitely be making another visit in the near future.
Good food. Not great value. Beef bourgongon was unexpectedly smoky although nicely cooked and a little fatty. Service was excellent. When I learned there was a shrimp mousse with the dish I initially ordered, the server promptly substituted the order before we received our entrees. (I am allergic to shrimp.) Overall, pleasant, but overpriced. Better value at other restaurants in Old Town.
Great service and wonderful restaurant week menu. Wonderful wine list with a knowledgeable and helpful staff. We will definitely be back for the Chef’s tasting menu. Atmosphere was a bit Louder than expected but as we were seated towards the back it wasn’t so loud that we couldn’t hear each other.
Party of four dined to take advantage of the Alexandria Week menu. Service and service was outstanding. Only issues was that the room was very noisy due to no sound attenuation--carpets, drapes, etc., so conversation was difficult.
Came for a girls night during restaurant week and had an amazing experience! The service was wonderful and the meal was just as good! Would highly recommend!
The food was excellent. Our waiter, Cosmo, was excellent too! We never felt rushed...it ended up being a 3 hr. meal/birthday celebration. I had not dined there for a few years...I think the new chef is wonderful. The charcuterie/cheese plate was delicious and the cassoulet was a nice combination of duck, sausage and beans.
We went with the Restaurant Week menu tonight, which was excellent: tomato soup w/smoked paprika (appetizer), beet salad (appetizer), beef bourguignon, and cheesecake. We also got the wine pairings, which were excellent. The only downside of the evening was the waiter, Gregory. He was a bit of a jerk and totally disinterested in explaining the dishes and the wines. It felt like we were putting him out to have him wait on us. Such a shame, because we’ve always liked this restaurant. Robert Wiedmaier is no longer affiliated with the restaurant. Even so, the food was still delicious. The service was off.
Service was extremely slow. Soup was cold. Mother's meal was bland and tasteless. Mine was good. Both of our desserts were inedible so we left them after one bit. Regular Price would have been very high for what we got had it not been for Restaurant Week special. Would not return.
Restaurant week! Great!!
We went to celebrate my friend’s 65th birthday and retirement. It happens daily to be restaurant week. The service was excellent and the pre-fix dinner was wonderful. Everyone in the party enjoyed every course and the wine pairings. It was perfect.
