Food was very bland. We tried a couple different items. Staff was very courteous, but not particularly attentive.

Not bad. Good setting, mood. Good drinks, tasty food*. I say tasty because it was a rather small portion, atleast for the crab cakes, could come with a side. A little confusing and wait staff/service a bit slow.

Overall 3.5/5

First time here. We both ordered grilled salmon on greens, and it was a really nice portion and delicious. I came in all set for the spaghetti squash with tomato sauce, but they said they didn't have it. Not sure if that's temporary or permanent. The only thing I would change (besides having spaghetti squash) is that, while the tables and chair look cool, it's not really all that comfortable. The view makes up for everything, and our server Everett was great. We'll definitely be back.

Worst service we have ever had. Waited over 30 minutes to even meet a server, after having a reservation.

Lousy in every possible way. A waste of valuable space. Slow, boring, bad. L

The space has plenty of promise, but all together the price point just didn't quite live up to the promise. Maybe it was just an off night, but there are plenty of other great options nearby.

Wonderful location in the revitalized Southwest Wharf. The view was spectacular, the décor playing to the view. Our server was attentive without "hovering" over us. The food was of the quality one would expect from a restaurant in this location.

NYE dinner before a concert at The Anthem. Our server was AMAZING!! I’m regretful that I don’t recall his name. They were super accommodating to allow us to order off the regular dinner menu (versus NYE) and greeted us with proseco. Loved the space and look forward to going back when we can enjoy the view! Sadly, they were out of mussels but what we did order was delicious.

Wait staff was lovely. Took a while for food but we had a big party and all orders were correct. Food was very, very good. Pretty nice wines also. Overall a delightful experience. Pretty views and great patio if weather allows.

I came here with my 12 year old daughter for a mommy daughter date night. We both loved it. The atmosphere was great and so was the food and cocktails.

THE REStaurant was difficult to find. The address is deceiving and the signage is not existent. Even once in the building, there is no clear instructions how to link the elevator numbers to getting to the restaurant. Once in the restaurant the atmosphere is great and the service is friendly. However, for the lunch the menu is very very limited: 4 sandwiches and two salads, 4 appetizers. the bar was well stocked.

Had a hard time finding the restaurant. Got lost in the parking lot for about 10 minutes. The background music in the restaurant is loud! I could not hear what any of my fellow tablemates was saying. Food was well styled, but the Branzino was salty.

The food wasn’t very good. The waiter tried but was just ok. With all the choices at the wharf, I’ll steer clear of Canopy.

Appetizers were good, mains we bad.

Burger ordered medium rare got it well done. They took it off bill so I appreciate that. The flatbread was burnt pretty bad and not good at all.

Appetizers were really good. Cocktails were good.

Not recommended for dinner but happy hour.

Great views and atmosphere.

Great staff.

Prices are really good for the Restaurant being in DC. Food was delicious. It’s a very low key place on the waterfront with a warm ambiance. It has out door dining as well.

They had live music for brunch, pretty good views. It was cool to be up off the Main Street, like a birds eye view! Good casual option on the wharf.
