vipOpenTable Diner (Washington DC)

Great food in a cozy setting with value wine list. We keep returning to Lock 72 because the food is always spot on and there is always a find on the wine list to pair with the incredible food. This visit was no exception. I opted for the bouillabase and my husband selected the duck breast. My stew demonstrated careful preparation with each type of fish - scallops, shrimp, cod, etc. -- cooked perfectly. My husband's duck was equally well prepared.

Given the difference in foods, we opted for a rose wine from Provence. It paired beautifully with each of our foods. We were equally happy with the $48 price for such a nice wine.

Service was good and Nick, the new manager, stopped by the table to chat. This little gem is worth the drive to Potomac.

Lovely atmosphere, great service and the food was exquisite. It wasn’t particularly cheap, but given the quality, it was by no means overpriced. We will definitely be back.

The Amish chicken entree was cooked perfectly and the wagyu burger was terrific.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening at this restaurant. Start to finish all was excellent. Hospitable staff, and very comfortable space.Initially I was going to have appetizers, but the menu featured duck and I was not disappointed. My husband enjoyed his soup and the branzino special as well.
I am certain we will return.

This was our second trip to Lock 72 Kitchen and Bar, and, though good, we did not enjoy it as much as the first. Prices were high, and the crabcake dinner we shared was not as tasty as last time's. Our waitress was loud and a bit confused, though she was trying to be accommodating. Still, we would return to try again!

Absolutely one on my favorite "neighborood" restaurants in the DC region. Welcoming host, great food, attentive staff, warm atmosphere and large bar. This place never lets me down. It is reliable and consistent. Will keep returning and recommending to others in Potomac and the surrounding area.

My friend and I were meeting for a holiday lunch at catch up. We had a lovely meal and both enjoyed the salmon burgers which were delicious. We appreciated being able to substitute a salad for the fries. The service was friendly at atmosphere lively.

Love Robert W restaurants but the menu options are limited and pricey for this location. Would come more often if more choices and lower prices.

Good food, ruined by very poor service. Ice cold bread. 30+ minute wait for any food. New, warmer bread removed from table (along with our other dishes) before we were finished eating. Restaurant was not busy. Not sure what the “rush” was all about. Very pricey entrees. We opted for two appetizers per person. Need to be sure service is better educated before we return.

We have been going for years.
The new menu was a nice upgrade.
For us it hit the spot.
The toffee desert was great.
Always good service.
We go for the booths every time.
