Although cooked okay, the steak meat appeared to be of sub par quality resulting in a flavorless (despite the over seasoning) and tough profile; not even the steak knife could cut it well. The Chilean sea bass was anything but fresh and the vegetable accompaniments were not cooked through nor were they well seasoned.

The meal was completely inedible and the performances (although good) were few and far between. Neither justified the high markup on the meal. After just two bites of the entree, we grabbed the check and headed elsewhere for our celebratory dinner. Great concept, poorly executed.

I had my 40th Birthday celebration at Sax. It was a good experience however 2 things I would note to anyone thinking about booking. Tiffany that helped me with my reservation was very rude via email and I did not appreciate that as a paying customer. Perhaps they should enroll her in proper etiquette training and how to speak to customers and hopefully that will alleviate further issues. Secondly, only 5 people attended my event however Sax still charged me for 7 people. Not a fan and not ok with that so I probably won’t go again nor tell other me about it due to that. So unfortunate!

Found this venue in Google. My wife and I attended for a date night. It happened to be the show for Adam & Eve. It was an absolute AMAZING evening! The decor and scenery inside was so ballroom/elegant/victorian. The show was very tasteful and indulging. The food was delicious. I actually had my steak overcooked and it was replaced immediately with another that was grilled to perfection. On top of that we were complimented free drinks with the meal. The staff was dressed to impress and so courteous. We can't tave enough about this place. We definitely recommend Sax to anyone looking to have a great entertaining evening.

The show is very sexy, the food was delicious, and our waitress was very nice. However, you need to get there early to get a good table to be able to see everything, and they won’t sit you until everyone is there. Our table was ok but one of us couldn’t see much and the ac was on top of us making it extra cold. Also, I found it misleading and very disappointing that even though they allow you to split the bill between a max of 4 cards, you have to do the math yourself. Normally restaurants when you tell them ahead of time they keep everyone’s food on a separate tap. Not here, which can be difficult to calculate after a night of drinking. We stayed for the night life and it was another disappointment. The site talks about dressing nice but there was a college crowd there wearing the same thing they would wear to go to class. I’m giving this place a good review but I’m also a bit disappointed with it. I expected the crowd to be grown and sexy after the show ended and it was not.

While the food and service were good and the performers were talented I felt like it was falsely advertised. This was NOT a burlesque show and it was only performed intermittently.

I am not sure I will return or recommend it.

Also the website didn’t say I would be charged a 20% service charge.

It was beautiful, the show was incredible when on the bottom stage, we hated the glass box that the show was performed most of the time in. It was awkward looking up, at a glass cage.

It was my birthday and my waitress was so horrible i wrote "horrible service" on my receipt. She often disappeared. We were told prior that the check could be split on 4 cards but when i asked for 3 separate checks i was denied my request. We were told that there was a 2 hour maximum on our dining experience, but the table of 10 next to my party of 6, were occupying there table before my reservation and continued to party after my check was given to my group. And to add insult to injury, when i received a complimentary birthday cake, it was given with no flatware and i was unable to eat it. It wasnt until 20 mins after i received it, one of my party guest went to the bar to get me a fork. I will never recommend this place to anyone for anything other than drinks. I felt ignored and rushed at the end

A unique experience. Great performances and very interesting ambiance. Two things they can easily work to improve though:
- rearrange table set up so that everyone has a reasonable view of the performances. No talking drastic changes, just alternating arrangement.
- serious work on the quality of food! It was definitely under par- steak and lamb over cooked and chewy. Nothing exciting to talk about the appetizers or sides either.

I took my husband there this past weekend to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. My coworker recommended this place as I was looking for something different to do for our anniversary. It was a complete surprise to my husband on where we were going or even that there was going to be a show. Needless to say, we went in with no expectations and walked out with having one of the greatest dinner experiences of our lives! The ambiance was perfect. The restaurant was impeccable. The food was FANTASTIC! server Alisa and all the performers AMAZING!

I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a different experience that was well worth the money!

Great night out at Sax. Service was a little slow this time around. We were seated on the second level so this might have been the cause of that. Performance was great and the food was good as well. Definitely recommend trying Sax while in DC!

We went hoping to see a burlesque show, since that is what they advertise, only to see a cheesy "grease" show. It would have been better if it wasn't just lip syncing. Very disappointed. $589.00 for 7 people and we each only had 1 drink. They add a lot of taxes and fees.

Hi Tracy, Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our playbill parody of GREASE. We have been advertising since July and its all over our website. Sorry you missed it. We charge the standard 10% DC Sales Tax and we do charge 22% Entertainment and Service charge to all checks. We do not charge an admission fee for our shows so the 22% includes entertainment and the service you receive from the server. We are a pooled house. Again we apologize for your experience.
