overall a very pleasant dinner, We were seated on time, and every course was timed good. Our server was always there at the right times. All the food was excellent, but I did order the steak medium and received a medium rare steak. Like most chefs they always assume I really did not want my steak medium and it would taste better medium rare. And like most chefs they are wrong, I really do like my steak medium. And I did not tell the server about this error, as that would have changed the atmosphere of our evening which was more important than this error.

We went to the Sanford house for their Valentines dinner. My husband and I had the same thing and we were so pleased with our choice. The spinach salad with a lovely light vinaigrette, delicious light a fluffy dinner rolls were a great start. The entree was a perfectly cooked tenderloin over mashed potatoes that had been crisped on a grill which held up the tenderloin, asparagus and carrots accompanied the meat and potatoes and a delicious sauce on the plate. The finale was a dark chocolate creme brûlée which was so decadent it will haunt my dreams of the perfect dessert! Well done Chef's well done!

My husband and I have brunch here every year as a Valentine's date for the last 4 years. It has always been nothing short of extraordinary, from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. When the weather is cooperative, after brunch we get a drink from the bar and sit out in their beautiful courtyard and enjoy the scenery. I highly recommend this place!

I am a regular at the restaurant. I was truly most disappointed at this visit. We often found ourselves looking for the waiter. Most upsetting was the overly used amount of salt in the food it was almost inedible. That says a lock sitting I love my salt..
I'm willing based on past experiences to still recommend this restaurant however with caution.
The butternut squash soup was thick and came across as old and reheated.
Let's hope this was just one unusual case in the next visit is better.

Ok, we usually come for special occasions and have loved it every time we've come. But the food this time was mediocore. We were both disappointed. The food was warm and lacked flavor. We are hoping the next time we go it will be what we fell in love with. The bread pudding was not good either and we've had dessert before and we were very surprised as to how lack luster the whole meal was.

Dinging experience overall was good but the ribeye was not! Two thin to be properly cooked. Not a good cut so I guess that's the reason for brown gravy on it. Brown gravy or sauce goes on pot roast. Key lime pie was very good.

Delicious! They were extremely accommodating. We asked for alterations to menu items and they came out great. Also had a 5 year old with us and they fixed her some Mac n cheese and chicken strips. The Mac n cheese was delicious. (I ate the leftovers 😉). Service was very good. Will be back in a few weeks.

Always the best fresh (never frozen) food and a very classy boutique . Short but great wine list. Cost is very reasonable for the quality of goodness. Would expect 5 star prices but prices are more akin to a chain. Excellent one of a kind experience.

A friend joined me for a lovely lunch. Food was delicious. They added an avocado cream sauce to dip our chips in when we asked. Service was excellent. Our tea glass was filled constantly. Only downside was the people at another table. STOOD to visit and talked so loud we couldn’t hear each other. Hope that multi-million dollar deal works out for them! Maybe some rugs would help with the noise level. Still one of my favorite places to go to treat myself.

I waited until the last minute to make reservations to meet out-of-town friends. I couldn't contact them to change the time. The woman at the desk was so kind and told me she could put us in the bar lounge. We practically had a private room for our luncheon. The food is so good and the noise level is low enough to enable conversations (you can't say that about many places nowadays). We stayed and talked for a long time and no one hovered saying we stayed too long. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. This is my go-to place for fine dining.

Restaurant 506 at The Sanford never disappoints. The service is always outstanding, ask for Chad if he’s available, he’s always fabulous. This has been our date night & anniversary place for the last few years, but I recently went vegan at my doctors recommendation for health reasons. The chef prepares a wonderful vegan couscous and they had to die for brown sugared brussel sprouts on the menu this visit! Always lovely being able to eat at our favorite places and still have vegan options that taste delicious. Thank you Chef!

To celebrate my daughter's return from a 4 months stay in Europe, she, her daughter and I had Sunday Brunch at our favorite Arlington dining spot, 506. It was a delightful and memorable experience. We have celebrated graduation, birthdays and other special events at 506 and this occasion was just as enjoyable as all the others.

What used to be one of Arlington's best kept dining secrets has become 'the' place for fine food, excellent service and pleasing ambiance.

Service was excellent as always. Food temperature was a bit colder than usual. Also my friend ordered the beef tips but was not much meat in the dish which the server quickly corrected. I ordered the breakfast tower and the sausage was a bit dry but still tasty. Still one of my most favorite places for brunch and will definitely be back.
