The views make this a special place! Service was a little slow on a Friday (around 6pm-8pm), but the wait staff was friendly and the food/drink was very good! Overall, a good special occasion experience for the money.

Food was very good but were still eating salad when main courses came out. Had to hurry so food wouldn’t get cold. But overall it was an enjoyable evening.

This was a wonderful experience and definitely a check on the bucket list. I wasn’t too impressed with the sauce that went with the chicken, it didn’t really go together. And I was there for my birthday and most restaurant acknowledge that with either dessert or something but nothing. The waiter was nice but we did wait 45 min for our food.

Once again, we had to send food back to get warmed up. I thought we would try this restaurant again after a few month's in between, but the results were the same.
Great location for us, view was awesome, service was ok, nothing to write home about but once again our food was not warm.
Whatever system they are using doesn't work well.
I doubt if I would go here again.

The price was crazy for the very blah food - we didn't even eat 1/2 of it because it just was not tasty. Bill for 3 people (2 drinks, no apps or dessert) was $150. That's a bit crazy. The view was great, but that was the only great thing about it.

I had a great time and felt it was totally worth it.

There are two circles of seating with a dance floor space in the middle. We were seated at the outer circle, which gives you the best view while the restaurant is rotating. The food was wonderful but slightly expensive ($24 burger, not including appetizers and drinks).

My only issue with the whole evening was navigating the hotel's location and parking. Since this can't be changed then it's not that big of a deal I would still give 5/5 stars.

I gave 4/5 stars only because my server didn't validate my parking like he said he would. So instead of going all the way back to the top of the building to get my parking validated I just paid the $24.

Try it! You'll like it if it doesn't make you dizzy. You can feel the rotation for people who get motion sickness easily. But really, try it!

The atmosphere was lovely. It was a little chilly so my party had to keep their coats on. The food was standard, nothing super amazing. You pay more for the atmosphere and the feature of the restaurant. Perfect for date night, I would recommend to a friend

Visited for my birthday and while the appetizer and entrees were delicious, SKIP dessert. They had a old taste to it, like it had been pre-sliced and sitting out for a while (the cheesecake and the "something chocolate", not worth the money.

The view was nice. However our server waa horrible.He gave us our drinks and took order around 540pm and never came back to check on us until we called him over around 645 for our check. He did however service all of his tables around us. When we addressed him about it..no apology or acknowledgment given..he took the plates and brought back the check with his 20% gratuity built-in. We spoke with manager to have the gratuity removed

Our first time to going there for VD. We were very excited to enjoy the view.
I gave them 4stars because when We arrived ., We waited about 15 mins and we got accommodated
We saw a empty table right next to the windows are I asked to switched to that table. But unfortunately they didn’t let us change seats.
Even though no one was seated there until we left.
Other than that we had a great time and yes we will love to come back.

Go for the view and experience of a rotating restaurant overlooking the scenic DC area. However, the food and beverage quality and selection are below average. On Valentines Day, the menu was extremely limited, over priced and not all that interesting.
