A really good place with a beautiful view. We had the place to ourselves for it to be just after lunch, but it worked in our favor. We were seated right away. The bowl of greens were superb!

Great ambience, fantastic views of the Potomac River, good service. However, a little too pricey for the type of cuisine ( food was average, even casual, but prices were for gourmet )

The service was horrible. Our food took forever to come out. When it did come, the salads weren't delivered until about 10 minutes after the meal arrived. And, the steaks were rare-rare (like still cold) vs. medium rare. We couldn't send them back as we had a concert to get to and the waiter never came back by to check. In addition, drinks weren't refilled even though the water asked one of our friends 3 times if she wanted more tea - he just forgot to bring it each time after she replied "yes". To top it off, since it was a group of 9, they automatically added a 20% tip -- of which we would not have given if we had the choice. Finally, the waiter was exasperated to have to split the check and took a VERY long time to do so.

Food and service were excellent, but sitting next to a table with six screaming kids (and at least that many adults “supervising” them) running around the restaurant was not ideal. I felt like the staff should have taken more control in asking the numerous adults at the table to mind their children’s behavior in that setting, or maybe the restaurant should have sat that party (or all other parties) someplace where rambunctious kids wouldn’t ruin all other diners’ evenings.

A nice local lady recommended this restaurant, called it a "hidden gem" of National Harbor. It was lovely. The Loaded Tots were wonderful as was the Chicken Sandwich. Wonderful atmosphere. There were not many in there when we were but the service was great. We had not planned on this place for dinner but we are glad we stopped in!

The food and view were great. Unfortunately, the service was abominable! They allowed the breakfast diners to occupy choice tables near the windows well in the Brunch service. One diner occupied a table for four near the window and read the entire time and was not eating or drinking. We were lead to a table that would be in traffic when the restaurant was almost empty. When we asked to be seated in an area closer to the window we were lead to a table that had food on several chairs. When we asked that the chairs be cleaned the staff member was extremely rude and offended that he had to switch out dirty chairs for CLEAN CHAIRS! Our waiter seemed offended when I asked for straws for the water glasses because the staff member had his hands all over the rims of our glasses. The waiter bought uncovered straws (like I was going to use those straws). I asked for bottled water and hoped the heat killed whatever they might do to my food. I am not asking Merchants to genuflect for my dollar but I will not be treated as if I should be grateful the Merchant is allowing me to spend my money in their establishment while being disrespected!

The food was excellent. The service not so much. Although, the place was empty when we arrived Saturday morning, water was not brought to the table for 15 minutes after seating. The water had a few unknown things floating around, we had to ask the waitress to bring us new glasses. Also, we ordered several sides off the menu and the waitress failed to bring one of them, she said she forgot to put it in the order. Needless to say, the item arrived long after our meal. They did not offer to take it off the check or provide a discount. The only good thing was the food that actually came on time. The view of the marina was actually very nice. I'm not sure I would return here considering all the other options in this area.

Terrific spot for a quick birthday breakfast that my pal - he later told our team is was an "EPIC HANG!" Seriously - the restaurant staff was "right on" for this one - just 2 friends grabbing breakfast, I mentioned we were having a breakfast for his birthday because the place is convenient, GREAT view and super reasonable price for coffee and a couple of PERFECT omelets. We had work to do as well - and there was nothing rushed, food perfect, service perfect - and BAM! - the staff brought out a dessert with a candle on it for him. If you are looking for an escape - this is on the bottom floor of the Westin - 1 level down from the lobby. Easy, casual - and just the feeling that you are not cramping anyone's style. National Harbor is fun and there are a ton of places - but this one is perfect to duck in to and is EASILY on par with everything else - and it costs less. A GEM.

I only really enjoyed the wine choice. The appetizer and dessert we're good but the main dish (salmon) was only ok. I was disappointed the restaurant ran out of the ribeye as well. Probably won't return as the food did not have a lot of flavor.

The food is generally very good at Saucity and it’s usually a nice, quiet place to have a meal with conversation that you can hear as very few people dine here because it’s a hotel restaurant. This time, however, one of my guests had the trout and it was inedible because of the quantity of salt that was used. Had I know this prior to paying the bill, I would have let the waitress know. The waitress also was very attentive and pleasant.

I’m a Gold SPG member and I will return again.
