    The location and speed of service is the best part of this restaurant. Get the feeling they are cutting corners to make it work, for example the Shrimp and Corn Chowder had one piece of medium shrimp cut in half and the rest is all corn and broth. The entree portions are fairly sized and priced. Drinks are 3/4ths ice. Valet parking is offered for $20-$50 depending on what time and day you arrive. Returning is somewhat unlikely unless there is a change. Hope to see them grow.

    Found multiple hairs baked into the crab cakes. Told manager. He comped 2 drinks off bill after extensive explanation of what “could have happened “. I ran restaurant for over 15 years and we would have comped the bill. But I’m from another era.

    Food is delicious and service is good. Be careful when making a reservation for a group of more than 6. The current policy is that they do not seat large parties outside, even though Open Table will allow the reservation request to be made.

    Kudos first to Anna: 1. very welcoming, 2. able to have the booming "background music" lowered to a more tolerable level, 3. attentive and professional. The seafood risotto plate was prepared well. The rockfish and grits were excellent, however, the crab did not taste fresh. The sauteed cabbage was mushy and bland. The Point is probably short-staffed. Why else did we have to wait 10 minutes past our reserved time. Previous visits were more enjoyable.

    Food was superb! Drinks on point and not stingy on alcohol. My party had a mix of pasta, salmon, shrimp fried rice and brussel sprouts. We also had those tasty crab donuts and I’m almost died they were so freaking good! The only downfall was parking was $50! This is my second time, next time I will just Uber.

    Food and service were great. We ordered sushi, calamari, shrimp parpadelle, corn chowder, seafood risotto and the Chilean salmon. Everything was delicious. Favorites were the sushi and shrimp pasta. The calamari order could’ve came with more calamari and the seafood risotto could have done without the Parmesan cheese to taste more of the risotto. Seafood was fresh all around! Would definitely come back. Good wine selection too, we had the Albariño white which was good and smooth.

    We came in with a group of 8, booked very far in advance, excited for a celebratory birthday dinner at a new spot. Start to finish, our experience was pretty bad. We were seated right inside the front door with no other tables around, and it was so cold that most of our party had to wear our coats the whole time. I'm not sure if it was because we were seated out of the way, but our server seemed to forget about us on multiple occasions. The drinks were bad, the appetizers were cold, my friend was served cold soup, our fries were limp and cold... I could go on. We planned to do a few rounds of appetizers and smaller plates, but after the first items, neglected to continue ordering. We were still planning to do some birthday desserts but our server was MIA for 30+ minutes and came back smelling strongly of weed. After our bad drinks were empty for so long, we decided to head elsewhere. We spent over $600 and didn't enjoy a single part of the experience. Save your time and your money, don't come here.

    My party really enjoyed our dinning experience on Valentines Day. We made our reservations early to be ahead of the game. Our only concern was the "Operating Fee" that was charged for our group. We were not aware of this fee in the District of Columbia. We just found the fee to be a bit much. Not to mention you also have to pay for parking. I called ahead to find out the parking fee, but was unaware of the operating fee. This lesson was a learning experience and I will make others aware as I recommend friends and family. On a positive note, our server Mr. Greg was great and so helpful & accommodating.
