We had an awesome date night. Our server, Alyssa, was very personable and attentive to our needs. The food was amazing and the drinks were made superbly. We are definitely returning with friends. Loved this place.

Had a great experience, but didn’t read some of the most important info on the site until, after we were bumped out of our seating by security telling us. They have people who reserved the seats for bottle service and would arrived in 10minites! At least that could have being clarified, when we first got there, by our waitress or waiter or any of their staff!That we are only limited to dinning for a certain number of hours. I think staff should give guest heads up that when you reserved for dinner, it’s later changed to bottle service, so we can be prepared to leave immediately after dinner! Especially being our first time, for a table of 4 with almost $400 in Bill! So I learned now! And the whole night we were there, the guests for bottle service never showed up until when we left a little after midnight!

We went to Sax to celebrate our wedding anniversary and boy we made such a perfect decision. The food was amazing our server Maria “Maite” was wonderful and super helpful (as this was our first time @Sax) and shows were outstanding. We loved every second of more than 2 hours that we spent there. It’s perfect for dates and off course is a little pricey but worth every penny. I would definitely go back soon for every thing. Food, service, ambiance, and the show.

SAX is a great place for a date or a couples night out. The establishment is very nice and elegant. The dancers add to the dining experience and the food is portioned perfectly. The staff is friendly and the experience is a once in a lifetime for visitors.

My husband and I dined at Sax for our Anniversary. It was our first time at Sax so we didnt really know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Our waitress was extremely helpful at making drink and food recommendations. The show was awesome. We never saw the same performance twice. The food was delicious, very flavorful. After our meal and 2 hours was over we spent time at the bar. Juan hooked up our drinks at the bar. We had a great time and an unforgettable experience. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I are fans of burlesque shows and decided to book one at Sax while we were in DC. Admittedly, we had some high hopes as all the restaurants that we’ve attended previously were highly interactive with a show that pulls you in and makes you feel a part of the show. Sax, was very disappointing.

First, the show. The show is designed to happen in spurts. Every 7-10min during the evening, the ladies come out in various costumes with a slight striptease. The dancers were beautiful, however the choreography seemed forced, unrehearsed, and it seemed as if they were not having fun at all. Every few shows a line would drop from the ceiling and a dancer would swing from a circular or rectangular object. Some spinning and twirls, but nothing noteworthy. Also, at one time there was a dancer with a hula hoop of fire behind the glass stage, dancers on the floor, and a dancer suspended in the air. In my opinion, it was too much at once and we couldn’t focus on one area at a time.

The food. My wife had the Oscar style NY strip and I had the lamb chops with a side of butternut squash purée. The crab topping on the steak was bland but the steak was decent. The lamb chops were bland and over cooked (ordered mid rare). The rack came cut in half, not individually, and was very boney. The vegetable side that came with it was actually better than the chops themselves. The butternut squash puree was the best out of it all.

The service. Other than feeling rushed to order, the service was decent.

We enjoyed ourselves, but there is certainly room for improvement.

The food was fair for the price, service was adequate but often left waiting for a drink, and while the venue was absolutely beautiful and impressive, the entertainment wasn’t quite as varied as we expected. Lovely evening overall but likely would ‘t return for a second time.

I attended Sax on a Saturday night to celebrate my husbands birthday with a group of 6 friends.
Despite a hiccup early in the night where they made us wait 30 minutes to be seated, we had an 8:30 reservation, my group had a great time at SAX. The service once, we were seated was good, ( they gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne for the inconvenience and free round of shots for my husbands birthday). The food was excellent and far exceeded my expectations (I had read not so great reviews of the food), and the ambiance at SAX is simply superb (the shows are hypnotizing and made for a very sexy vibe.

After 11 pm the restaurant turns into a club. We lingered and danced for about an hour. But since they only played house music, we left in search of a more diverse music selection. Overall, I would recommend SAX for a sexy night out or a special occasion.

I reserved this restaurant for a friends birthday. My party was 7 people in total. My reservation was for 9:00pm, I got there at 8:40pm. The hosted at the first was amazing and kind. She informed us that out table wasn't ready and try still had guest there but they where leaving now. We waited and waited and waited. Its now 9:35 and the guest of honor guest was still waiting. I felt like when you reserve a table time wise 20-30 before the next party everything should be clear. I had to clean around the section and fluffy up the pillows myself. I had to go to the bar for silverware myself. Its now around 9:45-9:50. The waitress comes and inform us that the kitchen will be closing at 10:00pm because it turns into a club. We never even got a chance to read over the menu! Or even enjoy the performance! When our food came out 20 mins later cold and not all fully cooked. There was no time or room for anything to be sent back to be heated back up. Its now around 10:40 the waitress comes and say you and your party didn't hit the $75 per person limit that's for Saturday only, plus we have to leave the space because at 11 its club night. So I felt like there should be some accommodates for the wait and service we where receiving. Finally she came back and said we will charge you as a regular night. Which was nice! And you could stay here at your table for additional 45 mins. I said ok thank you. She then came back and said you only can stay if you buy a $200 or higher bottle of your choice. At that point I said No Thank you and at that point she said well we need this section. We where rushed and disappointed with our service, food. I WILL NEVER GO BACK AND I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE UNLESS ITS JUST FOR HAPPY HOUR AT BAR!

Went for their first Fetish night, had a great time once we understood what was going on. Will definitely be returning. There were a few kinks in the food delivery but hopefully that will get worked out in the next few weeks.
