Menu way too small still; it should be expanded now that we are coming out of COVID. The online menu advertised was WAY better than what was actually offered. Also, there were tiny gnats in my Sangiovese.

The patio seating outside is fantastic! Especially around sunset. The wines are okay and the plates are better for sharing, it can get pricey quickly but definitely a great spot on the river.

I booked a table on resy specifically to ensure we had a firm reservation given the rainy memorial weekend prediction. When we showed up they denied that we had a reservation and insisted that we had made it at a different location. They persisted with this attitude and told us they would do us a favor in giving us a table. They placed us in a table directly next to the entry counter and when we asked if we could have something else they told us to take it or leave it. When we again reiterated that we had a reservation they accused us of being disrespectful. It was an unpleasant experience and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone nor will we return. We have other options in Washington DC and found an amazing spot in Navy Yard at The District Winery where, even without a reservation, we were given a table. The service was amazing, the food and wine were great. No need to endure bad service!

The wine selection for a winery was lacking especially the flight selection (only 1 flight of 3 wines to choose from). To add only 1 of those was palatable or remotely matched the charcuterie board. Beautiful scenery, with great service, just lacks on the actual "winery" experience. I'd suggest bringing in a culinary team that can match the menu to the selection of wine and broaden the selection of wines.
