    Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. Honest about anything we asked, brought us french fries when our food was taking longer than he was comfortable with (we didn't even think about if it was taking too long). We all got different meals and everyone enjoyed what they had.

    Great location in the middle of Adams Morgan. The second floor minimalist, industrial style room overlooks the buzz below. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was good, but and competent prepared, but nothing special. Standouts included the chicken wings that had a spicy sriracha coating of the juicy and flavorful meat inside. The hamburger eaters were impressed. The mussel were the weak pint. They were small, not juicy, and the broth had little flavor. In sum, a great place to hang, with a pleasant, if not stellar culinary experience.

    Awesome meal. Great window view and super service. The softshell crab special was especially good. Fried just right -- light and crispy with nice greens on the side. We asked for a beer pairing with each CV ourselves and everything was spot on. Big Tuesday bonus -- everything on the super bottle list was half off!!! A great opportunity to try out some really special offerings without totally breaking the bank.

    Great atmosphere. We arrived early and were seated immediately however on website I asked for the same time and was told “sold out” by website. When we arrived it was one other couple at a table and a few patrons at the bar. Overall great food and beer selection. Had a pleasant dinner and didn’t feel rushed at all.

    I thought the food was very average, but the beer and the view were amazing so it sort of made up for it. I got the dry rub wings and the spinach pretzel dip. The chips for the spinach dip were too thick (in my opinion) and the wings a little too dry. At first, they waitress said they did not serve ranch with my wings but then decided to accommodate me. I would come back and try something else next time.

    The bartender should try his drinks to see if they can be consumed. For the gimlet, here was so much lime concentrate that I had to ask for simple syrup and add as much water as was originally in the coupe. The salad was drowned in a very strong dressing and the waiter was so busy I couldn’t get his attention to ask for a remedy. The steak and pasta with mushroom Ravi were excellent. The fries with the steak were so oily they were mushy not crunchy.

    We went for brunch for a birthday. Big windows provide alot of light which makes for a nice atmosphere. Somewhat loud but not a big deal to me. Service was very good. They were slammed but you could ask any of the staff for assistance and they were helpful. Food was good, plentiful and very reasonably priced. Waiter comped a birthday dessert. Definitely recommend this place.

    Service was Ok. They were able to accommodate my party of 11, however, they weren’t too friendly. Waitress wasnt friendly but did her job. We got our drinks and meals but she didn’t check in on us. The food is above average pretty tasty however portion sizes are on the smaller side. Overall Ok experience. Would probably come back for happy hour or trivia, but not dinner.

    Went with my daughter. Wait staff was great. Food was also good high end pub grub. Had Brussels sprouts and Mac an cheese appetizers and a burger and some sausages for main course . We enjoyed it all. Warning it is more of a bar scene than food scene and it was pretty loud. But s good vibe and a lot of Fun. Place was crowded but we were not rushed at all. Would recommend for young people

    The service wasn’t super hot considering it was busy but not crazy. They refilled some drinks but not what I’d expect for an average place in DC. They also never even asked to refill a friends coffee at the table. Menu was limited and mimosas has pulp.
