The food was really good and the ambience is beautiful. The service was so slow and aloof- forgot an order didn’t seem to care or give us an update or anything. We would have stayed and had much more to drink and a dessert but it was so slow we opted for home.

I am someone who is big on customer service and theirs is top notch. After arriving embarrassingly late for our reservation we were still able to be seated right away and everyone from the host to the waiters were attentive. We started with drinks and my sister wanted something a little sweeter than what was on the menu. The bartender made a drink special for her. I had a Prosecco that was very good. The appetizers that we had were delicious and the plating was beautiful. I had the crab cake that was cooked perfectly and not mushy on the inside like some can be. My sister had the shrimp and she was happy with it. We both had the chicken Parmesan, I was hoping for a little more wow, but it was good. We’re not from D.C. but when we visit again I wouldn’t mind coming back here.

The food was good but the service was atrocious. We ordered drinks, and the first drink came promptly enough, but we had to wait 20-25 minutes for the others. It also took a while for the food to come. Then we ordered four desserts. Two came and then we had to wait another 20 minutes for the other two. I understand the shortage of staff at this time, but the restaurant was not THAT busy, and the delays in bringing the whole orders didn't seem like a staffing issue. Our server was largely indifferent. We had a 6:30 rez and didn't leave until 9:30 because of the delays. I hope you can do better because the space was nice and the food decent.

It was great to see Norm Tanney behind your bar making expertly crafted cocktails. He is a consummate professional barman. Alexander was our waiter and was very good. Our dinner was outstanding and we look forward to our next visit.

We ate outside - they told us that they are close to opening up a redecorated interior - dinning room and (I think) bar.

The three of us tried three different meals - hamburger, trout, and steak, All three were very good. We had the warm Chocolate Chip Cookies for desert - while we knew (from asking) that each person would get three cookies - we did not realize how large the cookies would be. We got two orders and each cookie was just shy of 5 inches in diameter and each one was made with brown sugar and butter that came through in the taste.

We live nearby and greed that we would be back!

Overrated by Sietsma in WAPO. Limited menu, terrible wine list. Overdone entree. Incredible noise level dining outside on Wisconsin Avenue. Totally over priced. No wonder that the restaurant was empty, and I could get a reservation almost immediately. You can do much better elsewhere. Caveat emptor.

Very poor service. Waitress told us we could not park in the (empty) garage but instead needed to find street parking in the rain. We had called before coming and they told us to park in the free garage.
Food was mediocre and service was slow and grumpy. Very nice setting but unfortunately, we will not return.

I had read negative reviews on its service but wanted to try it anyway. The service was terrible, plus by the time the hot food arrived from the kitchen (located inside the hotel), it was cold.

My /h and I had an early-ish dinner with our 3 y/o grand/d. Complete with Kids Menu,
her dinner and ours was delightful -- on the large outdoor patio with cover and side shields as needed (except we enjoyed them open for breeze). The Staff was most pleasant and attentive. Our first time, but a neighborhood gem, I can tell. Will go again when I'm back in town.

The food was fine, but way overpriced. I had the shrimp and grits which left me hungry because of the small portion. $32.00! A friend in our party had the cavatelli which she was not happy with.
Luckily we just wanted a chance to visit. The chocolate sundae was big and yummy.

Food was disappointing. Chicken parm was dried out and the shrimp and grits were just meh. Help was awful. Acted like he couldn’t care less whether we were there. Outdoor space was ruined by the wind tunnel winds. Weird pacing for the food. Appetizer came out quickly as did the cocktail. Wine and main courses not so quickly. Given the expense — over $200 for one app, two mains, one cocktail and a wine on the lower end of the list — there are many othervplaces to go in DC that provide better food, service, and value.

Wonderful neighborhood gem. Delightful spot and excellent service on all levels.
Not only table service but parking as well.
Tom, the Hotel manager sprung to our aid - as a result of Covid, there's no longer any valet parking. But the manager had us park the car right infront of the Hotel while we had dinner - problem solved.
So highly recommended.

many of the foods that were on the website were not on the menu. service seemed disorganized and tired. hamburger that we ordered rare was well done although on the return, it was medium rare. drinks were late and arrived with salads. we had read Tom Sietsma's Wash Post review and went because of that. Disappointing

Went to their new Sunday night live jazz and it was absolutely wonderful! Every dish we had was so delicious! We started with the shrimp cocktail, steak tartare and charcuterie. I had the shrimp & grits for my entree, which was by far the best shrimp & grits I've ever had and then finished it off with the tiramisu and cookies - both TO DIE FOR. The jazz artists were great and I definitely plan on returning!!

Came here when they first opened and was fabulous. Every time since the quality of the food has declined. What used to be a fabulous steak for the price is now an overpriced cheap piece of meet with no flavor or marbling. Ordered it medium rare and came well done. Sent it back and next steak was more like medium well with barely any pink. Chicken parmigiana was good and servers very friendly. Miss the excellent food from Casolare. Hope the chef and new kitchen gets it together as it’s a great neighborhood spot if food gets better

We ate Sunday brunch on the terrace -- it was perfect. The terrace is set back far enough from the street to be an enjoyable outdoor dining experience, the tables were well spaced, and the service was outstanding. The food was very good and a good value as well.

The food was very good but on the heavy side. The wait staff was harried and the service was EXTREMELY slow. It took more than an hour for our appetizers to arrive. We had been waiting quite a while after the appetizers for our entrees, so we ordered a salad because we were hungry. Maybe 15 minutes after that, the entrees arrived. We finished those and ordered dessert, and then someone brought us the salad.

There are two dining areas: one indoors and one in a covered pavilion. The pavilion is charming; the indoor dining area is not. It's poorly lit, drafty, and not at all cozy. The one good thing about it is it's quiet. This restaurant has promise if it can improve its service and if it can make its indoor dining space more inviting.

Kind of disappointing experience. They seated us in the bar area and the music was strange and very loud. I thought this was somewhat of an upscale place but it felt more like a cafe in terms of the menu, fairly basic stuff. Our waiter was good, nothing against him at all, but he was also the bartender and had a lot on his plate, so it didn't feel very attentive nor professional. Food is expensive for what you get -- we enjoyed our dishes, but felt more along the lines of a place like Logan Tavern, where a similar dinner would have cost us maybe $100 total. At Glover Park, our bill came to $200, which I thought was very high for the experience we had. Won't be going back.

The restaurant was not seemingly busy (only patio seating was open), but it took over an hour to receive our food. Other guests seated after us (and in larger parties) received their food before us, making us wonder if our order was lost. We asked for bread and didn’t realize we would be charged $6 for two pieces until the bill arrived. Same with charges for refills on soda. Disappointing service and timeliness — our server never mentioned there were delays. Business model doesn’t align with neighborhood restaurants we normally frequent, and unlikely to give this one a 3rd try.
