When we arrived it was explained that we would have to sit in seats that did not have a view of the game. We were told those seats had to be reserved in advance which was not explained on the opentable site. I do not believe that was the staffs fault however bad communication on behalf of opentable. It should be more clear which it was not. The food was good and service was prompt.

Excellent service, food and drinks. Especially during COVID, the social distancing guidelines were perfect (no more than 25 people on the rooftop with a 75 min limit max seating time). Did not worry about being overcrowded and ultimately we had a great time. The view was gorgeous and the weather was perfect! Great experience!

Went there to watch the Nats game, and put a request in the reservation almost a month ago. When we got there, we had a table with no game view...pretty disappointed. Food was something you could find at 7-11. My beer was a can that they popped before bringing it to me...for $10. Save your money and watch the game from home. That said, the waitress was very friendly and was patient with my disappointment...such are times during COVID.

Despite us successfully making a reservation, we drove an hour to get here only to find out it was closed. No posts on their website or any social media. No sign on the door. Just a locked rooftop. So disappointing. Why weren’t we notified?!

The food wasn’t great, the drinks were good, and the waitress was unfriendly and rude. The ambience is great though and was the only reason we didn’t immediately leave.

Overall a good experience. It stinks that open table assigns you to a table so don't expect to automatically get a view of the stadium. saw many people leave after learning that. the food was okay, the buffalo chicken was more like soup and you got a very small amount of it.

Great place to catch the game from afar. Waitress let us stay a little longer than timeframe until the next guests came! Not too expensive either.

We were staying at the Hampton Inn and are Nats fans. Made a reservation and went up during the COVID season of 2020. We could see Pitcher, Plate and First base line. Solar panels on the Nats garage block the full view. It was the closest thing to being able to go to Nats park. The game was also on TV and visible at the bar which was nice. I tried to make a reservation for 3 but it wouldn't let me. It only allowed a reservation for 2. I showed up with 3 (myself and 2 sons) and the waitress was very understanding and went out of the way to make sure we had the extra chair for our table. We got one of the best tables on the edge for Nats park view. You scan the menu and it shows up in your phone. You order on your phone and pay on your phone so it is all no contact. We had Chicken sliders and Burger sliders and Nachos. The food was good. Only criticism I can make is my son wanted his Chicken slider plain and there is no option in phone ordering to make special requests for food. He just handled it and removed lettuce and most sauce himself. Overall it is just basic decent food with a good view and a nice way to spend an evening in DC

A great was to take a peak into a Nationals game safely from a distance. Reserve a high top for a better view. A good selection of beers. There should be more food on the menu. Perhaps a grill one day.

Loved it. Can still see home plate, the mound, and first base - probably the only views we'll be getting of Nats Park this year. Can't wait to go back.

Good as long as the $50 in drinks and food per person is not enforced. Food was okay. The nacho's were the best value. Staff treated us well, and even let us sit at another table once our reservation was over.

Great people up there. But the food is less than desired as in previous years. The sliders are like going to 7-11 and the chips and buffalo dip are like right out of the freezer quality. Good thing for their drinks..

We made a reservation here for happy hour and I didn’t realize the high top tables had a hour and a half limit with a $35 minimum per person. This was noted in the fine print on open table but I didn’t see it. When we got there and they told us this, I asked if we could move tables and the manager wouldn’t let us even though the place was completely empty with only one other group there while we were there. I could see this requirement for game days, but not on a normal five o’clock happy hour.
