Excellent service, our waitress knew the menu very well and was able to eloquently explain each dish and provide recommendations. The food was actually great too! Their thin crust pizza is to die for and honestly every other dish we ordered was fantastic! The patio is pretty but it was too cold!

Nice ambience. If they enclose it a little bit it would be better! It was windy when I was there so enclosing the sides would help.

We were able to make a reservation at the last minute and we’re excited to try the place out, but we’re disappointed. We placed three orders at the same time, two pasta specials and one pizza, the pasta came out, barely warm, and no pizza. They compensated with a Caesar salad, and said the pizza was just then going in - by the time we finished our pastas the pizza still wasn’t out yet. They did comp the pizza and boxed it to go, but clearly never put the order in both times they realized it was missing. Sadly disappointed in the place but would maybe try it again.

This place is a hidden gem! The food was amazing and our server was quite knowledgeable. Of note, there is a family type atmosphere (kids and babies). We would FOR SURE eat here again!

To start with they do have an extremely limited selection of cocktails (4) but they were solid. Please add a French 75 and a FANCY Gin and Tonic that isn’t sweet but aromatic, something like a pear liqueur, housemade pear ginger syrup, bottle of Fever-Tree on the side and a fresh rosemary sprig in the glass.

The beer and wine choices are excellent! Especially the fact that they have many wine selections by the glass!!!

The crab cake is delicious!!! It comes with a guacamole schmear on the base of the plate along with a wonderful mint and cilantro citrus garnish on the top. DELIGHTFUL!!!

I wasn’t too impressed with the pizza crust but the cheese and toppings were absolutely perfect in every way! A Roman crust is tricky because if you don’t have the correct flour and water it can render the pizza crust a little off, don’t get me wrong it’s good but not great.

Their lobster roll was completely overpriced at close to $38 a roll??? I refused to order it...
I do want them to succeed but come on! Really?
Garbo’s is $18 a roll and $14 to add another? Even if you charge me $28 and $20 to add a second roll. THAT WOULD BE FAIR. I hate it when restaurants put MK/market price on the menu for no reason whatsoever except to hit you hard!!!
I can understand a rotating fish special but a roll? Mussels? A fritto misto with just one seafood item (calamari) and veg? Please put 2 seafood items in the fritto misto and stick a price on them.

The scallop roll at $25 was fairly priced and it was probably the most delicious scallop roll I’ve had in a longtime!!!

The tiramisu is missing just a little coffee liqueur in the soak to bring it up to a 10 but still receives an 8 because it is a great example of a true tiramisu recipe without alcohol!!!

Overall I think this restaurant has a lot of potential and if they can take these kind suggestions to heart they can have many happy customers and a thriving business!!!
Good luck & congratulations on your new upcoming opening in Georgetown
