My husband and I went for Valentine's Day Dinner because they were advertising a 4 course meal with wine pairings. We have been to this restaurant several times and like it. It is close to our house so we decided to go. We were on time for our 7:15 reservation. They took our order on time. There was a bit of a delay getting our drinks, then we got bread a few minutes after that. However, we did not get our first courses until 8:45. When we said something they gave us 2 drinks complementary. When we got our food it was very good (although the vichyssoise was warm). In the past the service was fine, so I'll chalk it up to Valentine's Day, but really, it wasn't crazy crowded and they had advertised this dinner, so you would think they would be ready.

Lovely dinner at New Heights. Really enjoyed every aspect of my meal. While the service was a little slow, the wait staff were attentive and pleasant.

AMAZINGLY CREATIVE CHEF!! Every time we eat here the food is creative and absolutely delicious. This visit we had sweet potato soup with a homey thanksgiving comfort flavor then with an amazing spicy kick at the end. I could have eaten a few bowls it was so wonderful. 2nd course was duck breast with cabbage and wonderful romenesco - Large portion that was absolutely delicious!! Couldn’t resist dessert - deconstructed apple pie - edgy and fun and melt in your mouth fabulous with bourbon ice cream!

Service was attentive and personable. Overall experience - top notch all the way!

A really great meal for a reasonable price. Don't overlook this longtime DC favorite.

1- we made reservation and there was clear place to receive us; we assumed a waiting area and waited for direction.
2- got seated and service was very slow and inattentive.
3- had to remind people of orders (Brussel sprout and dessert)- not a good showing for visiting (international) friends/colleague.
4- desert was delayed and horrible- no one cared to check on our satisfaction. We had to pay bill and leave because we were running late for a professional social nearby.

Gin drinks excellent! Food good. We arrived about 7 and did not get served dinner until almost 9 PM . We ordered fairly soon, but COOKING AND SERVICE MUCH TOO SLOW! The atmosphere is very pleasant and not too loud. Service was friendly but cooking/serving food and drinks way too slow.
