Enjoyed the food! Ate on a Monday night so it wasn't that busy. Had great service and I also liked that they had outdoor seating.

The Majestic is one of our favorite restaurants in Old Town. The menu is not overwhelmingly large, but you can be certain that anything on there is going to be delicious. (My personal struggle is that they serve one of the BEST burgers in Northern Virginia. I'm always hard pressed to order anything else!)

Its a snug, cozy little restaurant in a great spot on King Street, a great place for a cocktail, and the service is always top notch.

I wanted to give this recent visit a special review as my wife and I celebrated our anniversary there this past weekend. We were really blown away how much the restaurant staff went out of their way to help us celebrate and made us feel special. Everyone from the door staff to the servers to the manager joined in. We truly appreciated the extra attention and had a wonderful dinner. I even tried something other than the burger!

our shared appetizer consisted of mussels which were delicious.. our entrees were the hanger steak and striped bass. Both were wonderful and we left feeling that our dinner was extraordinary in that everything was just flavorful and well prepared.

I had the leg of lamb special. The dish was decent, but not spectacular, though the food here is usually great. Service was sublime (thanks, TJ) and great ambiance (outside dining). Will definitely be back.

We really enjoyed our Restaurant Week dinner yesterday. The food was excellent, the service was terrific (thank you Joshua!0)and we liked eating outside. The cost wasn't excessive, but it is definitely on the expensive side.

We had a three course meal and it took almost 3 hours to get through it as the service was very slow between the dishes. We had to ask for the bill and dessert. The food was very good for the price.

Truly a great establishment. Wonderful staff all around. I was there with my girlfriend for our anniversary and they left us a special note to say "happy anniversary" signed by the staff. Everyone was extremely welcoming and the food was terrific. I could not recommend this place more.

The drinks are always amazing at the Majestic -- and the service is fantastic. We particularly enjoyed the manager's visits. With seasonal menus, it's always changing. Just because I didn't love it this time doesn't mean it wasn't executed well; I've enjoyed the food more other times.

Took in brunch at the Majestic. Great menu! All of the food was excellent. Atmosphere was colorful, creative and chic. Waiters were all very polite and helpful. Service was unfortunately a little slow. No doubt they're suffering from not having enough employees but they did their best and apologized for waits. I would definitely go back. GREAT place for Sunday brunch!

My girlfriend and I had our first date here. Have been back Over a dozen times. Top 3 burgers we’ve ever had. Always get that when we come in. Staff is awesome and very attentive. Eddie is the the manager there and he has remembered us from one of the first couple times we dined, remembered our names, and makes us feel so welcome and taken care of. Recommend very highly!

We were at Majestic for restaurant week. So, the food reflected that - my chicken was wildly overdone. In our prior trips the food was much better - the difference between 3 and 4 stars.

This is a great space -- very relaxing and interesting decor. Everything was good, but the scallop dish that we shared was incredible -- easily the best preparation of scallops we have had in our lives.

First time being back to this restaurant since Covid started. The ambiance is cozy and intimate. The food choices are more narrow than before but always good. The wine list is well put together. A great neighborhood place that’s always a good meal.
