Overall our experience was good. There were three of us and we ordered a light fare and shared. The prosciutto/honey/fig pizza was tasty and the marinated steak tacos were excellent! The guacamole was fresh but very bland and the watermelon caprese was essentially a plate of sliced tomatoes...big disappointment. The dessert beignets were amazing!
Since this was a birthday celebration, I had requested a special dessert/celebration when I made the reservation and reminded the server when we were seated. She assured me that something was in the works. I was even willing to pay for something special! Instead she delivered a tiny bowl of whipped cream with a candle in the middle with absolutely zero fanfare. This was after our dessert was already served. What a huge let down!
There were more interesting items on the menu I'd like to come back and try and give this place another chance. Hopefully they won't disappoint!

While the restaurant came recommended, we did not have a great experience. While it’s right on the water, fun and hip and full of students and young professionals, it is loud. Really loud. I made a reservation through Open Table and we were seated right by the hostess station (Open Table, that one is on you. If that happens again, I’m deleting you.) and in a very high traffic area. We had a constant flow of runners and wait staff going past our table. Appetizers were good and came promptly, but my daughter’s entree was wrong and when my husband sent it back, the waiter got irritated. Then my daughter got irritated and as a result my husband got irritated. Although the hostess promptly removed my daughter’s entree, we waited a good ten minutes for a new entree to come out and in the meantime our entrees grew cold. Then dessert took a really long time. A manager apologized, comped the dessert and brought a second one, also comped. When the check came, I was more than ready to leave. BUT...I think I would try it again. Why? Because the menu is interesting and varied and there were so many things I wanted to order. Plus, the honey fried chicken was delish and the beignets were dreamy puffs with even dreamier sauces. I might try it for an early lunch, sans child, and maybe sans husband!

The only thing better than my perfectly cooked and tasty ribeye, was the quality of the stories my date told. Plus, she wasn’t too bad on the eyes either. Oh, and the Sazerac cocktail was quite tasty as well.

Great, but our reservations was for 7:30pm and we weren't seated until 8:10pm...fine because they gave us free appetizers which were ready immediately when we sat down. BUT the point of making a reservation is not having to wait and this is not the first time I made a reservation and had to wait forever. Then again the food is so phenomenal its hard to complain.

We had a reservation at 7:15 pm, were on time but got seated at 7:45 pm after being told that the wait will be around 10 minutes.
I ordered the mussels with garlic and wine, the amount of black pepper on it was ridiculous! Way to much!
My kids got the chicken tenders and did not want them. I found out why when I got home... they were spicy!
However, my mom got the eye of ribeye which was very good.

Our waitress was nice but not present. Not there to take our deserts order, not there to give us the check.

Overall, not a bad place but I don’t feel like going back.

Good location and a lot of variety in the menu. Good affordable prices but it’s really crowded and noisey. The servers are overwhelmed and take a lot of time to get back or simply jusy forget what you asked them. I had their impossible burger, I wouldn’t try it again even though it looked like a beef patty but it surely didn’t taste like one.

We went for Sunday brunch on 03/17/19 and when we got there we went to the bar to wait. The bartender was preparing drinks right in front of us and saw us come up however never once acknowledged our presence. We waited 30 minutes trying to see if she would at least say "Hi" or "Be right with you" or at the very least a welcoming smile but nothing. Her face seemed she was upset obviously anyone starts feeling that their burdening her with their presence. Finally I said hello and that we were thirsty and she responded she knew, and that once she is done with preparing her drinks she would be with us. The food and drinks were great, the service from that bartender-awful. I did not tip her. A simple smile or welcome gesture could have gone a long way for her that day.

The location, food and atmosphere of this place is great. We had a reservation at 1:30 for brunch but wasn't seated until nearly 2pm. The last seating for brunch his at 2pm and they start taking the food away (or not replacing with fresh dishes) by 3-3:15pm so know that if you get the late seating.

I made a reservation on OpenTable for 1:30 p.m. the brunch buffet (and confirmed the day before through OpenTable as well); I showed up on time and checked in with the host. They kept promising we'd be next, but we got fed up. It is apparent they double- or triple-book their restaurant; the waiting areas were so packed that you felt like you were on the subway. There was no apology for the wait and the overall attitude was one of "you should consider yourself lucky to even be here." After waiting over 30 minutes to be seated, seeing that the brunch buffet would be over at 2 p.m., and that there was barely any food left (on the buffet), my party and I left.

Was there January 2018. It was superb. Returned Sunday 3.17.19 with my son for his 52d birhtday and was very dissapointed. Food either undercooked, ie eggs and thick bacon, or overcooked like shrimp that was passed instead of delivered to your table and very hard to come by. My son had wanted chocolate cake for dessert and you ran out at 12:15 pm. In all very disappointed.

When I read the reviews, many people commented that they were seated late. We had a 7:00 pm reservation and when we arrived, they told us that they had just started seating the 6:30 pm reservations. Needless to say, we didn't get a table until 7:45. There was nowhere to sit and we had been out all day, so that wasn't the best. Once we sat down, the service was excellent and the food was good. I had a fabulous Tuna Poke salad. Delicious! If you're in a hurry, don't go! If you don't mind waiting 45 minutes for a table, you won't be disappointed with your meal.

It was a good experience overall. Had to wait a few extra minutes for a reserved table. The reception seemed a bit chaotic with groups of people loitering around the entrance. It was a bit less chaotic in the dining area, but very tight. I honestly can’t believe fire codes allow it. Consequently, it is very loud. Don’t expect to have any level of privacy or deep conversations here.

I had BBQ ribs which were quite good. The peanut side slaw was tasteless, but thought the fries were good. My wife’s fish tacos were strangely crispy and stale. Almost seemed like someone tried to heat them up to give them a second life. Overall the food was less than expected for the price. The last time we came here was loud and crowded, but at least the food was worth it. Not this time, I don’t see us going back anytime soon.

This place has a good schtick (try not to create a lot of trash, recycle stuff, buy locally etc.) but has the feel of a tourist place. The waterfront location feels kind of depressing, especially compared to the waterfront in SW DC, a much, much nicer spot. What we did love was our first try of the IMPOSSIBLE BURGER. Just delicious and perfectly prepared. That was the only thing we might go back for. The accompanying cabbage looked old and a strange color. Oh, and the freshly brewed tea was also very good. Still, it is a very popular place and was packed, so they must be doing something right.

I usually love this place. Idk where they went wrong. I had a late weeknight reservation and was seated late despite showing up early. There were two window tables and we were crammed to the side. The server ignore my table for the first 12 minutes. Forgot my steak knife. Never checked to see if everything was fine. That was all within their control.
Not in their control: the rowdiest group of older men next to me. Ear piercing cackles. I’m glad they were having a good time, at least someone was.
I’d expect this failure of service during brunch or on a weekend evening. Not on a Thursday.
