    The service was not that great. Felt like the waitresses was nee and just was not aware of how to provide real customer service. When I walked in no one acknowledges you or makes you feel welcomed. No one acknowledges you when u leave. Left a 15^ gratuity which I felt was too much for the service received. I expected so much more and was very disappointed.

    7:45 reservation outside. Table wasn't ready. Squeezed five of us on to a four seat table. Outside had half the tables not being used?! No idea why they wouldn't seat us at a larger table, or even put a couple of smaller tables together?? Ordering took forever. Eventually had our main course delivered to our table at 9:20PM! Meanwhile, no one would come and ask if we needed anything else inbetween drinks/appetizers. Very disappointed with the whole experience. $400, and we left our table at 9:55PM... Only plus was that the food was excellent. Shouldn't leave customers waiting at a table for that long.

    I made a reservation for my husband and I for our anniversary and asked for the anniversary menus which the lady I spoke on the phone with said she’d provide and I also requested outdoor seating which she said wasn’t guaranteed which was fine. Once we got there they told us it was a 25 min wait to sit outside when there was about 10 empty tables outside but I said okay that’s fine we’ll wait. We sat down and 3 mins after we arrived another lady and her child walked in and asked to sit outside. the same waitress that told us it’s a 25 min wait grabbed a menu and was getting ready to seat the lady that came after us outside and luckily another lady working told her she has to seat us first cause we came first. Once we sat outside our waitress barely came to check on us. Food wasn’t all that great. Ambiance was probably the only good thing! Overpriced and not that great of a meal. In the end had to ask 2 other waitresses to get our waitress for us to get our check cause she never came back out to check on us.

    The food was good. Especially the salad and dessert. The tavble was generous and spacing was good. The server was pleasant but left the table several times without taking my order. I had to call him back to take my order for a drink and the entre. I expected a bit more upscale experience for this restaurant but it was on par with a family restaurant. Not bad but not as I would have expected for this type of restaurant

    Our server was good, but not transparent. I asked her if I could replace my two sides and she said that I could. However, when I received the check, she charged $10 for them. However, my Mother ordered the same dish that I did, but wasn't charged to replace the sides. My Father didn't care for the green beans, so he asked for a side of spinach instead, which she informed him would be an upcharge. He hadn't even touched the green beans. She ended up charging him $5 for the spinach. This was a post Mother's Day lunch and this put a damper on the experience. I don't know if the server was new, but she should've been consistent with either upcharging or not. I won't return to this location.

    I arrived early for reservations and was left waiting for 15-20 minutes while the table was "cleaned" in an empty restaurant. I requested a table for a quiet business meeting but was placed in a very busy corridor with a vertical beam separating the party. As the crowd increased, my chair was continually bumped by staff throughout the meal. The food was mediocre at best and the "table" side dishes were rationed poorly for a party of four.

    Dirty floors, dirty glasses, hosts eating pizza, our host literally could not talk to us b/c her mouth was full of food, pan seared chicken nor Parmesan crusted flounder were worth the amount we paid. Calamari was luke warm and no one wants fried carrots with their calamari. No one.

    The food did not taste good, lacked seasoning. I spoke in-depth with the server prior to putting in my order. I asked the server to verify if I could add something to my order. The server told me yes, the restaurant could honor my request. When my food arrived at the table, it was not what I ordered. When I asked the server about the order she said. “I didn’t see the option in the computer so I gave you the 5 oz. lobster tail”. The server did not bother to communicate that she changed my order. She assumed that I would not notice.

    Me and my family had a gender reveal at the national harbor which after we wanted to get a meal to end the celebration. The host of the restaurant was very respectful as I requested a chair for my grandmother to sit while we waited which she provided with zero hesitation and for that I thank her so much. However, during our dinner it was such a poor experience I genuinely considered not even paying for the meal. The food was good as it was prepared to my liking but for the price it was simply okay. The service is where I lost all of my respect for this restaurant. When our orders were taken I requested 3 cocktails but only received two. When we ordered oysters as an appetizer the plate was left on our table for so long, the ice began to melt and became pure water. When the plate was removed the server spilled a good portion of the water on the table. After spilling the water she made ZERO effort to come back and clean the water. I took my napkin and cleaned the best I could but there was still a noticeable amount of water left on the table. Once our food arrived and the server came back, she didn’t even clean the water but simply whipped it off the table into the floor with MY napkin and didn’t even bring me another to eat with. I had a guest arrive later and when she sat the server didn’t even ask her if she wanted water or anything, she simply ignored her presence essentially and I had to give up my water to her. When the meal was all said and done, the server came back to clean the table placing two large steak knives on top of the plate stack. When picking up this stack she dropped a knife (almost hitting/cutting my sisters leg) she did not apologize OR pick the knife up at any point. It wasn’t until another server passed and picked the knife up and apologized. The manager did not apologize for the behavior for the server but did comp 50 dollars of food on our bill. Overall would not recommend as this was supposed to be a celebration but turned into a disaster.

    Service was slow, got billed for 2 meals which we only had one, had to ask for water twice. Food was very good, presentation, served hot, and generous portions. Will return for lunch hopefully less crowded and more attentive staff. Some of the great dinner items should be available in smaller portions for lunch. Did not see a senior menu..

    From the moment we approached the hostess stand it was a very negative vibe. The hostess was rude and nasty for no reason. The restaurant was doing reservation only which wasn't a problem.hiwvwe she seemed annoyed that we didn't know that. We walked away and made reservation which BTW was less than a 20 minute wait. We approached the stand with two reservations and she look at us and said I told you it was reservations only. We both said we have a reservation and they she really got annoyed. A couple walked up and ask to dine and she was rude with them as well. I told them we had two reservations and they could take one of ours. She had a problem finding my reservation even after spelling my name. I ask to speak to a Manager once I was seated. I walked over to a gentlemen asked if he was a manager and her was equally rude. I explained what happen and he just politely said okay. Didn't apologize for her behavior or address it with her. He never went outside the entire time we were there. The entire experience was abit off. Not sure what was happening today. I will definitely think twice before dining and M&S again in the very near future. Maybe this was a one off but enough for me.
