    The food was bland. The customer service left a lot to be desired, with the exception of the manager, and the water server. Our server Said was horrible he was flat out rude. We don’t pay to be disrespected. Put it this way, we have always tip our server generously. This is the first time that a tip was not given. We wanted to tip the manager for doing her best to make it right, but that’s not authorized.

    Overall we enjoyed our visit to The Warehouse. The service was great. We sat in a dining area upstairs. The food was good. I had the New Orleans Smothered Catfish. I felt the fish was a little soft and lacked flavor while the étouffée was enjoyable. My husband enjoyed his steak. The wine was exceptional, I had a glass of moscato and we finished dinner with a slice of pecan pie which was delicious. While the menu is a bit pricey, the restaurant is in a great location to take in local scenery and enjoy a walk by the water. All-in-all a decent visit.

    Not our first time going to The Warehouse. We had a 6PM reservation on a Saturday. We were seated on the main floor in the very back of the restaurant. Service was slow. Meal tasted good, but we were served much smaller portions than past experiences and like everything else, prices have gone up. Wondering if we'll give The Warehouse another chance...

    I asked for my salmon to be cooked hard so as not to be mushy in the middle, it was soft in the middle. The vegetables were not cooked enough for me. The service from the waiter was excellent. Very friendly, polite and personable.

    The quality of the food was good and the experience lovely and I look forward to dining there again. The only downside was the dessert. I ordered the hazelnut chocolate crème brûlée but in actuality it was a chocolate fudge with the a crème brûlée crust. The bread pudding was more like a spice cake, but my husband enjoyed it and they brought it out with a candle as a surprise for our anniversary. Others may like it but if you’ve had bread pudding in New Orleans, temper your expectations before ordering. The food was really good and perfect for the night. I look forward to dining there again.

    I ordered steak and eggs. The steak was smelling bad and nasty tasting. It look like it was microwaved and the grill marks were superficial. I complained to my server and he offered to bring out another steak. I told him not to bother because it just ruined my meal. My server did take it off my check. My complaint is the cook/kitchen for preparing a terrible steak!

    I initially had a table reserved for inside but when we walked in it smelled damp and looked super dated . I saw the fans outside and asked to be seated outside so that’s where we sat . Everything was mediocre-the blackened scallops were mushy ( not outside crispy and soft inside ) like they were kept warm for hours … the gator bites were chewy and my flounder was under seasoned . The peach sangria was ok . Overall we were disappointed for the fact that this was our 15 year anniversary. All and i mean ALL waiters wore their masks on their chins - why wear a mask then ??? We won’t be back

    The food was amazing. I mean everyone loves to go out, enjoy their friends and the neighborhood. But it does all come down to the food. The seafood platter was over the top tasty. Crab cakes meaty. Cocktails were spot on and the wine selection was very good. For any occasion, I’d recommend this place. Take your big bills as this place can be a bit pricey but it was well worth it.

    The service was slow. We could here the wait staff laughing and conversing amongst themselves. A man who might have been the manager yelled at our waiter for “not doing something for the second time” that day. We waited over 20 minutes for our entree to come out. The food was hot,gladly. The flavor was good enough, but overall I had better. I had the jambalaya pasta. The chicken was over cooked, the shrimp was good. I did not enjoy the sausage. The jambalaya would have been better over rice. The highlight was the bread pudding. We won’t be coming back.

    Food was good, a bit over rated in my opinion, however the service we received was sub par. Expected much more from “one of Old Town’s finest”- it was not even very busy yet- only 5:00pm- we sat with empty beverage glasses for 20 min and finally asked another server, not ours, for refills. Our server was absent much of the dinner.

    My wife and I enjoyed our recent dining experience at The Warehouse. We were seated promptly but had to wait for ten minutes before anyone waited on us. Our martinis were perfectly prepared and our waiter was very personable and attentive to our needs. Our steaks were cooked as ordered and we enjoyed the au gratin potatoes and a wedge salad. Prices were reasonable and we will probably return for dinner whenever we are in the DC area .

    We chose this place for dinner to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. When I made the reservation on OpenTable, there is a question that asks what the occasion is! It was not acknowledged at all. We were not made to feel special about celebrating our anniversary with them. We had made a 3:30pm reservation on May 28th. We arrived at 3:15pm. When seated, we were given the dinner menu. The menu pricing is higher then what is shown for this restaurant online. Our server was pleasant but a bit too attentive. He wanted to know what we would like to drink before we had a chance to review the drink menu. I do not like to be rushed. Once we ordered our drinks, he explained the dinner specials. I picked the Fruits de Mer Half lobster, shrimp and jumbo crabmeat with linguine pasta and tomato shallot cream sauce. It was ok. Overwhelming amount of cream sauce, but tasty. Half lobster was a bit dry. It came with a lobster claw that was tough to cracked. Plus it was a saucy mess to crack and pick through it. Shrimp were small. I enjoyed it but it was not worth the price paid for it. My husband enjoyed his Grilled Filet Mignon 8 oz. top choice filet on a bed of smashed potatoes with bordelaise sauce and without the fresh asparagus. The server was accommodating in substituting the asparagus (hubby does not like asparagus) with rice. We ended the dinner with ice cream and sorbet. It was a bit noisy due to a large dinner party on the second floor. My suggestion for the place would be to put fresh flowers on the table instead of the fake plastic ones. Brings the ambience down a level.
