The newly renovated 85-seat dining room features a comfortable and sophisticated setting of intimate booths, individual tables facing a high back banquette, and inviting contemporary club chairs in the single dining room. Extensive updates were made to the finishes, fixtures, and furnishings, and the newly hand-waxed walls are covered in salon-style collections of art, objects, and interesting images for a dynamic setting.
Tuna Poke was a generous portion for an app, and my husband really enjoyed the scallop dish. I thought the sea bass was definitely over-salted, and slightly over-cooked but the flavors were really nice together. It wasn’t a deal-breaker but for $34 you expect it to be great. Didn’t need so much salting... For so many great wines on the list I assumed they’d serve them at the right temperatures but the white wine I ordered was SO cold it needed 15 mins to taste right. Hubby enjoyed his whisky on a single rock. Appreciated them having the big block cube to serve it over. Glad he had a great experience bc it was his bday. Server was pleasant and showed up at the right times.
Almost thought we arrived at the wrong place from outside, but inside the ambiance was good and the restaurant was a buzz with activity. Mussels ordered as appetizers were delicious and waiter noticed we were enjoying the broth and brought more bread. Prime rib and short ribs were excellent, as well as the truffled potatoes and al dente broccolini. Featured lavender and Collins gin drinks were underwhelming and seemed premixed, poured from a bottle. Collins didn’t have the salted rim as described. Waiter was attentive and gave suggestions.
We had dinner there on Easter Sunday. The food was delicious, the wait staff was very attentive, and the restaurant was very accommodating. I plan to go there again soon.
I've been to the Majestic a few times and even had the same waitstaff repeated, however, this last time will likely be just that...the last. Our party was treated as an afterthought, had to ask for the Easter Brunch menu after our waiter mentioned there was one, he never brought it. The cocktails are a bit overpriced and a bit flat this go. Very few options for vegetarians and if you have a nut allergy, well no appetizer for you. An expensive brunch with little bang,
Small Restaurant, polite staff, extensive menu, delicious food!!!
The Majestic is never a disappointment. It was a lovely brunch location to celebrate friendship and enjoy good food. Will definitely continue to come back - especially for the coconut cake!!
Great food and service. The burger was super yummy amid the other meals were enjoyed as well. Great atmosphere but the bar area was extremely loud which made dinner conversation a challenge. A shame. The owners should consider a partition between the bar and restaurant. Always a great meal.
I went with my wife and some friends for brunch and the food was amazing. We had the monkey bread to start, and that was delicious and great for sharing. My friend and I had the prime rib omelette and it was really good and super filling. My wife had the croque de Monte Cristo which was also really good, but very heavy. The prices were very reasonable too. My only complaint was that the service was a little slow. It took 20+ minutes to get drink refills. Also, yelp says it's good for kids, but I'd disagree. It's small, noisy, and we weren't offered a kids menu.
Brunch. We made reservations because once before we couldn’t get in without them. Was well worth it.
Very good service and food. Short ribs were great. Scallops okay but too many ingredients. We would return and recommend it. Apps all good too. Coconut cake great!!
Good food, arrived for 6:15 res, felt rushed by hypervigilant waitstaff- food very good
Definitely want a booth for small party-
Food was amazing! My drink was terrible, and service could have been better. The waiter was a little slow.
I have always enjoyed the Majestic. Great food and service. Loud but not bad; we beat the rush so we could still have a good conversation.
I haven't been to the Majestic in years, and it exceeded expectation. Great service and the burger was outstanding! Loved it and will be back.
Always outstanding food and service!
You will not be disappointed the Majestic. Food is carefully crafted and really every single thing on the menu is delicious.
Great service and a great menu. Must try in Old Town, we will be back.
My husband and I brought our 3 year old for an early dinner. We were greeted warmly and seated in a booth (perfect). The food, cocktails and service were terrific and my son particularly loved the macaroni and cheese. We will return!
The Majestic was a great spot for lunch on our trip to Old Town Alexander on the way to Mount Vernon. Food was prepared well and Kitchen was accommodating to my special request. Even correcting a mistake I made. A fine experience.
The restaurant is "clubby" and charming although extremely loud. We had the Wednesday special, rotisserie lamb. It was tasty but a little tough. We liked the 1/2 price wine served on Wednesday. The servers and service was professional, polite and a plus.
The food was absolutely amazing. They have a good blend of local flavors and adventurous ones. My only problem was service - I tried calling because two of my party could no longer attend. The phone rang out five times over the course of an hour at the beginning of service. Then when we got there, the staff was a little huffy at the decreased size of the party and not as attentive. But when we did interact with our server, she gave good recommendations and was efficient.
Great place with delicious food and entertaining service.
Excellent. Manager even fixed us scallops though they weren’t on the menu.
Heavenly coconut cake
This was a great place to go for brunch. Although, it was noisy in the beginning, that went away when a large party left. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent.
Service and food were fantastic! Our server made wonderful suggestions.
Fantastic food, Jennifer our server was wonderful, we will be back.
We were treated really well and food was fabulous
Very nice ambiance
Service was excellent!
Great Food. We had the Mac and Cheese appetizer, seared scallops and pork loin. Dessert was the fantastic moist coconut cake. Service was spectacular. Definitely would come back to try more of the menu.
Food was wonderful. Service was excellent. Tables were so close together and it was so loud we gave up trying to talk to each other.
Really enjoyed the atmosphere especially as connecting with an old friend who looked as great as ever.
Good service and very accommodating to our needs. I will definitely go back in the future.
This place lives up to the hype! Great pick for foodie. The short ribs and chicken were both fantastic.
Great art-deco atmosphere. Very good service and food.
Consistently great food and environment. The service is amazing and it lends itself to a great family friendly environment.
We love Downtown Alexandria. This place was not bad but we won’t go again. The noise was so LOUD, not music, just people talking over everyone else. My boyfriend ordered the duck and I had the chicken. The duck was fine, the chicken was dry. Other than the noise, the ambiance was nice.
You'll love The Majestic. The food is great and the ambience is fun but not too loud. Definitely order the homemade chips with blue cheese and bacon app. Delicious!
Loved celebrating my birthday here. Delicious food. Attentive service. Two vegetarians and one non-veg and we all found great choices. A gem.
We had a wonderful family dinner midweek for a special occasion. The food was great and very reasonably priced as compared to other Old Town spots. Jen was a very attentive and professional server. It was our first time to the Majestic and we will definitely be back!
The waitress that night was excellent and the food was great, i will return soon and will pass the word around.
