As always, the food and service was phenomenal! Thank you!
So great - Food was amazing and our server was top notch
Nice place. Over priced
An absolute treat. It was a wonderful place for dinner. There were 3 of us having dinner and 2 are real Southerners. They were thrilled with the fried chicken. I had the hangar steak which was delicious. The small watercress salad on each dinner plate was a nice surprise and very tasty. Can't wait to return.
The restaurant has a pleasant interior (clean lines, high ceiling). However the hostess did not seem to recognize our reservation and did not convey to our waitress that this was a special occasion. The waitress gave little guidance to help our choices ("everything is good"), and lacked gracefulness and attentiveness, despite the fact that the restaurant was almost empty. This might have been due to the fact that it was an icy Monday evening.
Although well plated (see the fun to eat "Lemon eggceptional" dessert photo), some food was fine (calamari) while some did not meet basic expectations: In particular the loup de mer was highly disappointing (the fish did not taste fresh).
Unfortunately the overall experience was one that we will not keep fond memories of.
Central was down a notch, food arrived barely room temp. But best French in Washington for my modest dollars, so will be back and hopefully this was an off night.
I returned for the French Onion Soup and stayed for the Fried Chicken and Waffles. The French Onion Soup is complex and the only one I've ever been satisfied eating, with rich complex flavors without burying you in salt. The Chicken and Waffles were perfectly portioned and balanced, and the maple syrup had a slight kick to it that added a spectacular acid to the dish. The service was polite and extremely helpful. Our seat had a wonderful view into the kitchen and we got to see the deep care that went into each dish.
Felt portions were slim for the price. Went for brunch - the cinnamon bun was small and they gave me two macaroons for dessert. Presentation was two macaroons. Not even an attempt to decorate. Butternut squash hash was a pleasant surprise. Otherwise a disappointment.
Had a wonderful experience- great food, great service relaxed atmosphere- the best of the best!
Must try the fried chicken, frise salad, duck confit, the burger was amazing- desserts delicious! Sea bass revelatory!
Very efficient pre theater service. Good value on price fixe menu.
