Sax Ratings and Reviews
We went here to celebrate my birthday. Great food, our waitress was fantastic and the service is excellent. We truly enjoyed the cocktails, I personally loved the Melange :-) The place is expensive but believe me it is WELL WORTH IT. You get to have great food and drinks and enjoy the burlesque shows every 20 minutes. I had the best time of my life along with my friends.
This place is awesome! A truly one of a kind experience. Came here for a friend's birthday party and had a blast. The food was delicious and the service was some of the best I've ever had, it felt like we were royalty. The manager even brought out a round of complimentary birthday shots! Very nice touch. As far as decor, ambiance, and concept goes, this is the best in DC. Nothing else compares. I will definitely be back.
WOW!! What a great venue, restaurant, entertainment, and experience. Me and my friend had such an awesome time there and definitely plan on returning SOON!! Everything from the food to the ambiance to the burlesque dancers, it was all a fulfilling experience. What a great time!!
Sax's decor can't be touched, absolutely gorgeous. The wait service was wonderfull. The drinks both specialty cocktails and wine were great. The performances were extremely entertaining. The food from appetizer to entree to dessert were subpar. The experience would have received 5 stars if the food was half way decent but ufortunately it was not. We were immensely disappointed by the food at Sax.
We started a friends bachelorette evening out at SAX this past weekend. We were welcomed into the foyer by the doorman and immediately saw a fabulous regal purple chair under a chandelier that was a perfect photo op. Entrance into the hostess area was dark, but intimately lit. The entire atmosphere was amazing, gold chandeliers, velvet booths and every seat had a view of the stage. Our evening started with a champagne toast, a few specialty cocktails and amazing food. The only downside was that the shows were all above and behind glass, even so, we had a great view and enjoyed them. Would definitely come back again.
Over, Sax is just a great place to relax and enjoy a night out with good food, great atmosphere and fabulous service. Here are two tips to make your night more successful. Make a reservation for after 8:30 and stay a little late. The shows get better as the night goes on. Also, bring your two bottles of wine, preferably magnums. It will save you a lot of money and allow you to enjoy the wines you like!
We had the best seat in the house with a close direct view of the stage. The shows were very entertaining ranging from burlesque-ish to circus-ish. The food was perfectly prepared and the chef accommodated all the allergies we had. My only negative is that is was too dark to really see how wonderful the courses looked before consuming them.
The food was good, better than the reviews would suggest. It was a great girls night out location and the shows were fantastic. We were, however, very disappointed with their $75 per person minimum...mostly because they did not tell us as much until after we had finished our meal and were $120 short! Our waitress should have told us in advance of our meal. Other than that, it was a good experience.
I love the atmosphere and the ambience of this place it was phenomenal! my only complaint is that the waitress forgot one out two gift cards I was supposed to receive. I called the restaurant and they gladly obliged to help me, now I just have to fight DC traffic to the restaurant?!
Took my husband here for his birthday. We had a great time. Filet was one of the best we've had hands down. Not much of a dessert selection but not expecting it from a place like this. You're here for the entertainment and over all experience . Great place for a bachelorette party or girls night out!
Yes it's pricey , but you are paying for dinner & show , so it's still a good deal for a special occasion !
Though we try to patonize a range of restaurants, Sax is one to which we always return. The food is excellent, though the culinary staff needs to learn that aspargus should have bite and not be mush; the staff are attentive but not over-bearing, the restaurant is beautiful; and let's not forget the dancers, amazing. The only negative is the mark-up on the wine, particularly champagne. Kind'a high but let's not forget what the extra mark-up supports .... The dancers ...so it tolerable. Looking forward to next time a Sax.
Wednesday's Bubbles & Burlesque was a great way to celebrate my friend's birthday. Not only did they provide complimentary bubbles, but they also provided complimentary "shots" to start the night off; the $35 Wednesday menu was limited but the choices were still delicious. The complimentary birthday cake with candle was a very nice touch as well. We brought half of it home because after the food and the beverages, we were full. Our "person" even provided lighting to help us see the menu selections since the lighting is not conducive to actually reading but more to setting a seductive mood. I can't wait to come on Thursday nights!! All-in-all, we had a great time.
My husband and I were celebrating our 24 wedding anniversary and I wanted us to experience something different and we found that with Sax. The food, service, and the entertainment was outstanding and we loved the decor. We definitely will be patronizing this restaurant again.
Initially, I was skeptical about dining here because I expected either the food or the show to be bad. I'm pleased to report that I was wrong on both counts. The food, service, and the show were all first class. The resturant provides popcorn instead of a bread basket, but the popcorn was really tasty. While the signature cocktails looked interesting, we ordered wine. The filet mignon with crab meat and the beef short ribs were delicious.
The show was great fun. The dancers are behind glass above the bar and the music is loud, but each dance segment is no more than 5 minutes long and occurs at about 30 minute intervals. The costumes can be a bit skimpy, so if you're bothered by nudity or near nudity, this probably isn't for you.
On a random Wednesday, a colleague suggested that my beau and I go to Sax for dinner. The doorman opened the door to reveal a dimly lit, ornately styled space; dripping with romance. The burlesque dancers shimmied and shook as the perfect backdrop to the delicious food and potent drinks. We will definitely revisit!
SAX was definitely an adventure - think dinner and a show. While food and drinks are a bit pricey, the live performances every 15 miniutes are very entertaining and make it worth the price. Our group ordered a number of items from the menu, but by far we'd recommend the Lobster Burger which was a huge patty. If you're looking for something a bit different and swanky consider giving SAX a shot.
I have been to Sax before, and enjoyed both the food and entertainment. This time, I came on my birthday, and they kicked it up a notch and made the whole experience extra special! Everyone from the table bussers, to the servers, to the managers was impressively observant and attentive. We will definitely be back!
I had an awesome time. I think this one of the best restaurant's in DC. It has so much going on, there is something for everyone. I really enjoyed my time here. The bartender Cesar was amazing. I am going back a week after I went for the first time. The Brunch was amazing, shrimp and grits highly recommended....... Please take advantage of the bottomless grapefruit mimosas.
We truly enjoyed our dinning experience at Sax. The service ,food & dancers were top notch. We were celebrating my birthday & Sax provided us with two drinks & Birthday cake courtesy of house. It was the best Birthday Celebration I ever had. To all you complainers about the food lacking flavor. Go back to Taco Bell & get your Burrito with Hot Sauce !!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SAX !!
