    What a great view and beautiful patio, but it is right next to a major highway so the road noise was distracting. We had the Tuna Poke nachos and the Lamb Kebab, both were delicious! If I were to go again I might eat inside to avoid the road noise.

    It was a 50/50 Birthday celebration weekend with out of town guests and one event was happy hour at Smoke & Mirrors. We were able to get seating on the outdoor patio and the weather was nice, low humidity, low 70s and a mild wind. The views from the patio are amazing. The food selection was delicious and came out in a timely fashion. We ordered Truffle Fries*to die for*, Crispy Brussel Sprouts, Pot Stickers, and Filibuster Burgers*juicy & flavorful*. The craft cocktails were amazing and served in craftsman's cocktail glasses. Drinks ordered High Roller & Capital Smoke Show *Smoked versions of Old Fashions*, Punching the Lock, Lady's Choice, Rosas in Bloom and Tequila shots. They have a expansive collection of Vodka's, Gins, Tequila, Run, Scotch, Whiskey, and Bourbons. Definitely a place to come back to with friends or family from out of town or locally for a enjoyable Happy Hour or casual dinner.

    We were told they were short-staffedwhen we arrived so we expected to have a little bit of a delay and that is OK. After 30 minutes of waiting without being greeted by a server, we decided to order our drinks directly from the bartender. The drinks were fantastic, and the ambience is great. After an additional 30 minutes, we asked the hostess if we could just order food from the bar since a server had never come by. She said that was fine. A guy, named Joe, was up there and said that he would help us. He came over and took our order right away. An expediter brought our food to the table a little later. No one ever came to our table and refilled our drinks or checked on us. We had to go back and ask the hostess how to pay so that we could leave. It’s hard to rate it for service since we had none. The food and the ambience was amazing, but the service was the worst I’ve ever experienced. Save your money and visit somewhere else.

    Finally made it to Smoke and Mirrors. Had a really nice time. Views are great and the food was really good! (Highly recommend the braised beef short ribs!) The noise levels can be bit much depending on where & who you’re seated next to, but it wasn’t overwhelming. Justice was our server and she did a good job. This is a nice spot to visit! Hope to make it back soon.

    The staff was super accommodating for my birthday! My waiter was pretty cool and I went by myself, but as chill as the crowd was, I didn’t feel that way. Overall good views, good vibes and good music.

    Food was a complete dissapointment. This establishment was on my to do list for a long time and was an utter disappointment. The food and drink was the worst.

    We had two tables. We were waiting for the second table for an hour even though we were told it would be 20 minutes. We had people standing around the 1st table. We ended up just sitting far apart from each other. The staff wasn’t accommodating or apologetic at all. In the end, we finished our dinner and that table we were waiting for was still not available.
    Smoke and Mirrors - DCResponded on April 7, 2024

    My visit to Smoke & Mirrors was quite elegant! From the entry to the elevator to the Top floor to the View of the Capital and surrounding city! We sat outside towards the corner opening and near the fireplace it was a nice day no sunshine but fairly good The food for Brunch was delicious I ordered the blackened chicken salad with a side of cheese grits my friend had the shrimp and grits Both dishes didn't disappoint! The music background was not loud but audible and it was r and b and some old school upbeat songs the Waitress Makala was Absolutely amazing she saw to our every request and informed us of dishes and cocktail all and all it was Epic!

    Actually getting up to the restaurant proved to be a challenge. We were waived away at the entrance with marquee of the restaurants name, so we went into the hotel/apartments entrance, but there were no clear directions on where to go. Once we finally found the elevators, we could not go up because apparently a key was needed. Thank God when the doors opened, a resident got on and sent us to the correct floor.

    Smoke and Mirrors is a vibe. The view is great and outside area is nice for brunch. We had a great time celebrating my husband ‘s birthday. The drinks were good and our server Markeya was great. The noise from traffic before can be loud at times. The brunch menu is small so if you are a selective eater there may not be a lot of options for you.
