    My wife and I had a great time at Topside, everyone was so friendly, and our waiter Devin was fantastic. The food and drinks were delicious. My wife already said they we would go back there again.

    Terrific view of the Mt Vernon neighborhood and beyond, and delicious food. Would really like to see them add some zero-proof drink options that don't include alcohol alternatives.

    Food and service were both very good. Two small issues, however. Why are they charging $14 for bread. That's outrageous! And their dessert menu stinks. Too few options, none of which were very appealing.

    Food is overpriced for quality and portions. the food was really salty. The bar tenders and host were really nice. The server was subpar. Restaurants should stop adding instant gratuity to checks, it feels like you are implying that the guests were not going to tip. The ambience was really nice, I wish there was more effort into the food.

    I was at firsf dissappointed with the smaller number of menu items. But the braised beef was one of the best meals I have ever experienced! Im afraid to revisit for fear that a meal could not be that perfect 2 times in a row!! Amazing service! Delicious and succulent food! Beautiful panoramic views

    The service was incredible! Our server, Jada, was incredibly attentive and very friendly. I'd request a table in her section. The food was amazing, although some of the portions are a little small for the money. Definitely try the cocktails.

    For the first time, ever, I mentioned to my companion that is was cold, and a man heard me, asked if we’d like the temperature adjusted and did it immediately and came back to check it was okay. The restaurant was lovely, the food was good, but that thermostat adjustment was peak dining experience

    Get the roasted carrots! Amazing. The grilled calamari not so much - the spices made it taste bitter. All the views are wonderful - but the noise level got pretty high as the place filled up.
