The noise level was exceedingly high and we could not have a decent conversation. Would not recommend this for a celebration meal.

The service was terrible. The staff was rude and inattentive. It was low end service at high end prices. I wouldn’t have minded the service if the bill reflected a less expensive establishment but I expected a better experience.

We sat outside and the service was slow throughout our entire meal. We had to flag down our sever to both order food and then another time to order a second round of drinks. There was a long blonde hair in our appetizer, which was then replaced and removed from the bill. A nice gesture but the servers couldn’t care less about it. We left disappointed. With so many so many other great options in the same area there is no reason for us to go back.

Very friendly staff but I would return to any place staffed by the excellent hostess who facilitated a time change and two table moves with utter grace. The food is great if overpriced and the punch of the day was fantastic; the mezcal quasimojito called “Mezcall Me Maybe” also delightful. But it’s the view that you’re there for.

Service was a little slow. Food all came out at once instead of appetizer first. Otherwise a nice experience. I said it was for a celebration but all I got was a congrats (been to restaurants where there’s a small gesture like a tiny desert or small free drink)

We were celebrating a baby shower and had a group of 6. The setting was a good fit for us, quiet enough that we could chat and hear each other, and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the Brussel Sprouts!

The food and wine was great, but the service was not that great. Took forever to get our food, which probably was the reason I rated them low. Otherwise, I will definitely be back. Hoping this was a one off.

The waiter was great. The food was over the top good. We both had the halibut and were so complimentary that the chef came out to say hi. The waiter gave both of us old guys a note for our wives that said “your husband Mede the healthy choice of fish at dinner tonight”. It was noisier than usual, but it was great! Highly recommended.

Truly the worst service I have experienced at a restaurant in DC. I first was seated right next to the kitchen door, without being asked for my seating preference on a nice day, when the patio was not even full. I was meeting a friend, so I thought I would just wait until she arrived to be relocated and move outside. As I sat there, two servers continued to walk past me without acknowledging my presence for 10 minutes. I was not offered water or a menu, let alone eye contact. This would still be unacceptable service on a busy day in a restaurant, yet the restaurant was barely half full. Finally, someone acknowledged me and gave me a menu, so I immediately put in an order for a wine flight. When my friend arrives, she can't find the hostess to ask to be relocated to the patio. Multiple people are standing around also waiting for the hostess, who seems to have disappeared. Suddenly, she reappears, and reseats us outside, where the service was sadly even worse. The server on the patio again, did not greet us for 10 minutes. My friend ends up putting her drink order and food order in together because we were afraid the waitress would continue to ignore us. We wait another 15 minutes to receive a flight of wine. Again, the restaurant is not busy, so it's unclear why it took 15 minutes to pour a flight at a winery. The food arrives and was fantastic, though our server once again disappeared and never even asked how the food came out. At this point it's 8:45pm (reservation was at 7pm), and we're late to an event. Yes, it took over an hour and half to receive a flight of wine (a follow up drink order was never taken), bread, and two small plates. Our waitress had disappeared once again, so we ended up flagging down a food runner, explaining that we had been waiting for 20 minutes for our waiter to reappear. The guy ended up removing one flight off of our check, but it really did not make up for the terrible service. Good food, great wine, horrible service.

Girls' brunch here and it didn't disappoint. Food was very good and in a great atmosphere! While the service was good, the pacing of the meal was a bit off...drinks took a long time and then appetizers quickly followed. We hadn't finished apps when main course arrived. We felt oddly rushed but the place wasn't crowded. It's a bit weird when staff keeps wanting to take your plates. All things that I think can be easily resolved or maybe we just hit at an off time. I'll give them another try. The golden beets, mushroom toast and chilaquiles were probably the favorites of our table.

The service was beyond slow (and we were one of the only tables in the place). The food and wine was very good. Coming from someone who studied wine for 2.5 years, I think the wine is very much so overpriced, but is worth a taste for those visiting the area. The view is incredible for the place though. I didn't sit on the patio, but it looked very nice.
