The food was not very good and the service was awful. The host was unprofessional and it was more on the loud side. If you are looking for a cheap meal, this would be the place to go.

Greatest short ribs I have ever had. Definitely head to the Heights on happy hour (before 7pm) and get great apps like the Chili Tots and the Moscow Mule! Delicious!

Excellent good & service. Eggs Benedict with salmon & chicken and waffles were crowd pleaser. Didn't do bottomless, but will be back to try it.

Ps. HAS CINCINNATI SKYLINE CHILI!!!!

Good food. Good service. Probably paying $25 for one plate. However, the sharables are truly shareable portions.

We had a very nice out door lunch. I did order a margarita that seemed unusually strong. The food, however, was very good and enjoyed by all in the party.

The bourbon bloody mary was amazing. I went here because of a google search for "best bloody mary in DC" and was not disappointed. The food and service was great!

I quite liked The Heights. Their A/C was broken, so we sat outside, but you couldn't really tell you were right off of 14th street. My food was decent, my friend loved hers. The only downside was when I asked for a to-go box, the one they gave me was dirty. Like, dirty water on the inside, dirt in the creases, etc. I have no clue why, and they gave me another one when I asked, but that was a little concerning.

Other than that it was pretty good all things considered.

Very disappointed. Multiple plates and glasses were dirty. Service and food was mediocre. Do not plan to return or recommend.
