Seafood
The Point brings the thrill and robust flavors of open flame cooking with the freshest seafood in the city. Perfectly situated at the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, our contemporary design, tranquil open-air patio and premium fire pits, compliment the picturesque and panoramic views. Although we cannot guarantee outdoor patio dining for all of our guests. We will try to accommodate as many requests as we can on a first come first serve basis.

    Service was slow. Food wasn’t hot when it was brought to the table nor did it have any taste. Staff said they were short staffed. Overall, not impressed and not what I expected.

    Sitting outside with a view of the Anacostia River is great! The venue does smell a little of bad fish. However, the service is excellent. Portion size is moderate.

    I enjoyed my brunch at The Pointe; This is my second visit and I was dissapointed for the second time with my drinks. My brunchBellini was not good and the Prosecco could have been better. I had a cocktail my first visit and didn't like it. I was not alone, my friends didn't like their cocktails either. For such a nice venue, the bar is NOT getting it right. The drink menu is boring.

    I loved my experience at this restaurant, but the only issues I had was if I reserved outdoor seating at a certain time then it should’ve been available for me at that reserved time.

    The lobby area was a bit congested due to the lack of seating options. I had a 7 pm reservation, but due to a road closure arrived at 7:15 pm. I called and informed the hostess of my updated arrival time. When we, my party and I, arrived we waited 15 minutes to be seated. Our seating was at an awkwardly positioned small table inside. The food was amazing! The service was lacking! The wait time for our drinks, food and overall service check ins were subpar. I want to return, however, I prefer outdoor seating. The guest experience seemed to be better for patrons out there.

    I made the reservation for outdoor dining. When I arrived I was told there were no outdoor tables and I would have to wait 40 minutes. We were seated indoors instead, at the window and I could see 3 free tables outside. When I questioned this I was told they were for later reservations. Really, did my reservation not count? If we were not with guests I would walked out of the restaurant. Oh, and it was 45 minutes later before one of those free tables was used.

    Our group enjoyed the atmosphere at the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and responsive. It appears they were short staffed so it took longer for our request to be addressed. The food was good for most part. French fries weee cooked too hard for each person in our group’s taste. Otherwise it was a enjoyable experience and we plan to return.

    The service from the beginning was very subpar. We had made a reservation the day before. Upon arrival, the hostess station was very disorganized, we weren’t provided a waiting time nor any further instructions. There was also a private event going on - but no proper signage. We tried finding a seat at the bar but we’re not successful in doing so. When we went back inside, a couple which came AFTER us - was seated BEFORE us. They were also offered seating at the bar to wait, which we weren’t. The food was overly salty; our waitress came one time to check in. We were also told that our drinks would be comp’d - this wasn’t the case as only our appetizers were adjusted. I understand that at some point a venue can be understaffed - that’s not an excuse for poor service and communication. Although this restaurant was on my list - it is now off. I would have expected better service - and to think, you never know if you’re dealing with a critic, blogger, etc. All patrons should be serviced in equitable fashion - unfortunately, this was not our experience.

    I rarely write reviews but this was necessary! Took my husband out for Father’s Day with our children. The wait was long even with my reservation however it was worth the wait. Our waitress Jennifer was THE BEST! she was friendly, accommodating, and attentive. We started from brunch to dinner and the manager with the red hair and hostess with the cute loc buns were SO helpful! I was really pleased with their services and food. We even ordered 3 mussels 😩. A definite YES! Especially if you can get outside! 5 stars!

    I booked a late lunch (2:15) and although we sat inside it was quiet. Things started picking up at the dinner hour- that’s how long we lingered! I had no idea what to expect and didn’t even recognize the location before I got there ( behind Audi Field on the water). Parking lot next door, beautiful views and internal layout. Service was excellent- a U of Md student who could not have been more patient and attentive without being intrusive. We tried the Brussels sprouts with ginger, crab doughnuts ( sounds weird but not; they are savory vs sweet) , cod sandwich with fries, and mixed salad with grilled salmon. Plus a chocolate mousse type of dessert. Each dish got a thumbs up. I would have preferred the sprouts less crispy but the fresh ginger carried it through. Big portions- I took some of each home. Great cocktails as well. We had the blackberry muddle and the one with tequila. I never give reviews with this much detail but I want to support this place! A very good casual dining experience and I will return.

    Less fancy food decorations and more food. I have never had shrimp and grits with tiny and only 3 shrimp. For the price I paid, it was definitely a turnoff. I was disappointed, because the my first visit was satisfied.

    We got there around 10:30pm, but the food was great. We had the Brussels sprouts which were drenched is a sweet sauce (it was too sweet at the bottom), the smoked fish board which was delicious, calamari was yummy, and the oysters were so fresh. We will definitely come back and enjoy more things off the menu.

    This is sad to see. A beautiful spot in the water with some of the worst service I’ve ever had. Went twice to make sure it wasn’t a one of thing. Everyone was pretty nice. But slow. Scary slow. Forgot our drink orders. 30 mins to receive drinks. 25 mins to receive our second drinks. 30 mins to receive bill are asking for it. Was told there can’t delividev bill by 5 people credit cards. Had to divide by all 6. So we couldn’t treat one of our friends to drinks🤷🏽‍♂️. Amateur service at best. Don’t come here unless you sit at the bar.

    You can't beat the location, especially on a beautiful day where sitting outside on their picture-perfect patio makes for a lovely Sunday afternoon. BUT BEWARE: reserving an outdoor table means bupkis. They actually give them to patrons on a first-come/first-served basis.... kind of. When we arrived we were told that they could not honor our reservation for outdoor seating, even though there were multiple table open, because those tables were reserved. Errr, what? Yeah, they couldn't explain it either. And frankly, the front of house staff is equal parts oblivious, incompetent, and rude so your best bet is to just get yourself to the bar asap and move past them. If you can do that, you'll enjoy The Point. But, man, the initial experience is not welcoming and we were not the only ones having trouble with that trio of imbeciles at the front desk. Food service was slow (the kitchen forgot our order) but the bartender was a champion and made sure to speed it through once we reminded her. When it did come it was delish.

    Our Party of four requested And was assigned to outdoor seating. Towards the end of our dinner flying insects we're flying in our drinks and food. The server was not very attentive. Order a second round of drinks,and a beverage refill. Never received the beverage refill,The drinks were delayed.Ordered desert,Order was never placed. The manager gave us a discount and 2 free apple pie alamode. Over all experience. Satisfied.
