    Great service - both at reception and the server. Very accommodating with menu and dietary needs. Food was very good, across the board. The view is really lovely, of the city and lights, especially now that the holiday lights are in the Washington monument. The only thing to know is that there is a bar in the middle of the restaurant and it’s on the loud side.

    Topside did not disappoint, as always. Great food and drinks, kind and attentive staff, and an amazing view. We have and will continue to go to Topside for important dates.

    The server took a while to come. The host was nice enough to pour whatever. The server was not knowledgeable about tequila options even after providing a choice that was on the menu. The food was sent back twice and after the third time with it still being incorrect we just left. The fries were burnt and tasteless. The steak was not seasoned and raw inside after I asked for well done due to pregnancy the steak was given medium- twice.

    Had always wanted to experience this restaurant, finally got my chance. The doormen were friendly and inviting, directed us to the elevator where we rode up to a breathtaking view of the Washington Monument and the city’s night sky. I literally gasped. We were seated at the perfect table for two at the window overlooking Mount Vernon and we ordered a couple of beers, a burger and fries. Burgers were decent and the huge mound of fries, crispy, tasty, delicious. Will definitely go back to enjoy that view again.

    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
