I love Ana- wonderful staff, beautiful setting- but the brunch menu is lacking, especially for the cost.

My daughter and I enjoyed our first lunch at Ana last Friday around noon. The setting is hip, modern and casual, yet elegant and upscale. The bathrooms are very clean and well supplied (dirty bathrooms are a turn-off for me, therefore I always comment on the condition). Tables filled quickly but, thank goodness, the acoustics were such that the conversation was not a loud din of voices. We could hold a conversation without raising our voices. Service was fast and attentive, water refilled quickly when the glasses were even slightly emptied. I had the Golden Beet Muhammara and my daughter, the Peach Toast. Portions are huge for an app and are a meal themselves. The presentation is beautiful and the combination of flavors unique. Loved the candied lemon peel in my dish. For entrees, I ordered the salmon with green curry rice milk —so creamy! and daughter had the burger with onion jam and crispy skinny fries. Although we took home a major portion of our meals, we look forward to reliving the experience in another meal.

Ana at District Winery is a great lunch spot but it’s an even better choice for brunch. Creative food and beverage choices will appeal to foodies and the wine list is first rate.

We celebrated a birthday. Five people. The restaurant was close to empty. The food was just okay. My main complaint is the presence of House flies and mosquitoes. They were very distracting through the entire meal, and the server did not offer any relief or even state that they would try to resolve the problem in the future. We had to constantly ward them off.

As for the food, the flavors were enjoyably interesting. However, neither my dish nor my girlfriend’s dish was very warm when it arrived. I had the roasted monk fish, and while the seasoning was great, I thought it was a bit too dense. I would have also appreciated some accompanying vegetables (the menu notes fava bee a and other accompaniment, but it was too sparse to note), especially for the price. I would not go back.

It was a beautiful evening at Navy Yards, which added to our outdoor dining experience. Our waiter was quite good, as was the food. We tried the peach toast and spelt bread for appetizers. Beer selection was good; excellent cocktail (something about Bees with a honeycomb floating on top); and the wine was nice. Very noisy inside the restaurant but outside was more subdued. We enjoyed the free-range roast chicken, the summer vegetable pie and the capelletti dish with rabbit sausage. We would go back to this restaurant.

We've been to Ana several times. The ambiance is great, the staff is super friendly and accommodating, and the food is very good. Our prior visits, I would give the food 5 stars. This time, 3 of the 4 of us ordered the halibut (which we had ordered previously and it was excellent) and this time it was overcooked and dry. We probably should have said something, but we were tight for time as we were going to a Nationals game.

Having said the above, we will definitely be back.

We took the Water taxi from Old Town to the resaurant to celebrate my birthday, which also happened to fall during Restaurant Week. The 3-course wine pairing menu, service and ambiance (waterfront view) were exceptional. This will definitly be our go-to place when we are in the area.

Our service was excellent and the waterfront views were really lovely. The menu offered enough for a variety of dietary preferences, and the dishes were executed and presented well. It was also great to see so many local and artisanal producers highlighted in the menu.

The only setback was the noise level, which made it very difficult to have a conversation. However, overall the experience was worth the drive in to the city.

Food was absolutely delish. 10/10 for food. Loved every bite! Inventive, tasty and great portion sizes. Service was pretty terrible. It took a solid 30 mins just so we could put in our food order. Our waiter barely attended to us. My plate was taken away while I was still eating. (My food was in my hand about to go in my mouth when he took it.) We didn’t have silverware for our desserts. I had to go up and grab some myself. Our check was finally given to us by the manager probably because she could see we were waiting forever. It really hindered the overall experience!

A friend and I did lunch during restaurant week. We had eaten there once before and were eager to go back. It was a great deal...3 courses for $22! It was a hot day so the hibiscus cooler lived up to its name. I loved the peach toast with speck. So yummy! The roasted trout was fabulous...such a different preparation with shiitake mushrooms and a lovely turnip lemongrass purée. Dessert was fun...caramel apple with ice cream and cider donuts! I left happily stuffed!

I was blown away by my dinner here and will be thinking about the heirloom tomato tartare, vegetable shwarma and peach tart for weeks to come. Serious compliments to the Chef, who has a very sure hand with spices and a wonderful imagination for creative and utterly delicious dishes. The fact that it is a lovely, relaxing setting and the service is friendly but unobtrusive doesn't hurt either...All I can add is "Go, Go, Go!_

I returned here after a terrific experience the first week they opened last August to only be disappointed. Lackluster service, subpar food, minimal options, and wildly overpriced wine. I was quite surprised how empty it was during restaurant week, too.

We were excited to come to Ana for a surprise birthday dinner. However it fell short of expectations in the overall value we got. We got a few bottles of wine, which were not cheap, but did not taste great... we also had some issues with the reservation which were messed up but resolved. They did a great job to try to make experience a positive one for us, but I just found that it really fell short of what we thought it to be!

We enjoyed the experience very much. We were happy with everything we tried. I am personally finding the prices at both the Navy Yard and Wharf restaurants high and that's what missing in these two neighborhoods, including Waterfront, where we live, are the moderately priced places where one can go for an inexpensive weekday dining experience. This, like so many others of the new restaurants is just a little high priced for it to become a regular weekday destination for dinner.

Disappointed with the dinner. The view and atmosphere is the best part of this place but expect to pay for it with overpriced food and wine. They make no food substitutions so if you have dietary restrictions of preferences you will not be accommodated. The steak was good but overpriced and the sauces were heavy and sweet. The veg shawarma was also very good but our particular serving was half onions, one can only eat so many onions. Will opt to try other restaurants in the area in stead of returning here.
