Loved the low lighting and vibe of Sunday brunch. Wasn't too crazy where I could bring my parents who were visiting DC for the day
Had a good time before the game. We were well taken care of from when we arrive to when we finally left.
Food was good and the portions were just about right. No one had any issues with what they ordered. I will return.
The cauliflower appetizer is a MUST. Absolutely delicious!! I love the warm and cozy atmosphere, everything is very inviting! Perfect spot for a happy hour!
I've come here twice with my friend for brunch-- both times were wonderful! Excellent prices and ambiance, and friendly wait staff. After the meal we both wondered why we don't go to Sixth Engine more often.
Overall the food was average. The brisket was tough and very fatty. Unfortunately, one of the worst brisket sandwiches I’ve ever had. The fries were great. The restaurant atmosphere was neat because it’s an old firehouse. There are too many other great restaurants around this same area to dine at vs. returning here.
This was the first time eating here for all 4 of us and we'll definitely be back! We enjoyed brunch tremendously. Everything we ate was delicious (highly recommend the Benedict). The bottomless mimosas were a good price ($15) and I loved the history behind the building. Service was great as well, from the front of house to our server. This place is a must for brunch.
I ordered the brisket and it was amazing! Brisket on brioche with a side of fries. Great comfort food, the waiter was attentive, the soccer match and other sports were on TV, it was not overly crowded and the it was not too noisy. It's a great neighborhood bar. I will say to check with the staff on the menu, they change it often and if you have dietary restrictions it may be difficult to find many items to eat. Their brunch-lunch menu is not as expansive as the dinner menu and in general the menu for winter is heavy on pork.
Nice place in DC for a quick and reasonably priced meal. Cauliflower app was very good, as was the brisket sandwich. Good beer selection.
We found on Open Table at the last moment. We were surprised, and a little worried, to find the restaurant mostly empty on a popular night for dining out (it was literally the only restaurant in the area that could accommodate 5 at that specific time). The server was great and provided good cutomer service.
The ambiance was nice and versatile...Good for a family or a date! The food was very good. We all enjoyed our meal. The wine selection was a bit limited, but the glass I ordered was fine.
We will go back!
Our server was extremely helpful with suggestions on our dinner choices. She made the whole dinner process quite enjoyable
