    My wife and I reserved dinner for Valentine’s Day recently at Ramparts and we had a great evening. This is the first time we ate at this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. It’s an older restaurant with a small front lobby that virtually spills into the dining area. We ended up sitting at the bar while we waited for our table since it was away from the main door to shelter us from the noise, foot traffic and the cool draft from the door continually being opened. We had such a great time talking to the bartender that we ended up staying at the bar for our dinner. The Valentine’s special meal selection was excellent (4 courses) and the spirits were equally enjoyable and reasonably priced. The wait staff was friendly, fast and courteous. The only potential dings were the small waiting area while you waited for your table and parking is a challenge. We found out that the Burke & Herbert Bank across the street allows restaurant patrons to park in their lot after regular work hours. I wished we knew that before we came. OpenTable should add this to the Ramparts’ narrative on their website.

    As usual, food, beverages, and service were excellent, in general, as well an overall excellent value. There was an additional “plus” this evening. One member of our party - there were two of us - is allergic to citrus fruit. In ordering a dish which included a citrus-based sauce, we asked the waiter to have the chef prepare the dish without the sauce. When the dish arrived, however, it looked like it was sitting the sauce. The waiter noted the error and asked if we would rather have the dish taken back. We indicated that it was not a matter of taste but an allergy - which we had forgotten to mention earlier. The waiter was very apologetic was sorry he hadn’t realized that an allergy was involved. After finding out that the dish routinely included a citrus component, we ordered a different dish which (1) was excellent, (2) served more quickly than would have been usual, and (3) delivered by the waiter with both his apologies and a free refill of the cocktail previously served to the guest with allergies.

    We first visited Ramparts in 1980 and had countless meals here for many years. We hadn't been for nearly two years, however, when we made this visit for dinner on a Friday night. Our server was very attentive, but the food was just okay. The brussel sprouts in the wrap sandwich were cold and hard: large sprouts that were cut in half, not chopped as the menu indicated. They were more than just crisp, they were very difficult to cut and to chew. The salmon salad was also satisfactory but not worthy of ordering again.

    Good food and reasonable prices - a little noisy but great local spot to just grab dinner out - try some of special nights for very reasonable dinner out.
