    Food was really good but I am not clear if I had one waiter or multiple. As a result, we didn’t get much help when needed and finally had to hunt down someone for our check. But the food was really good and the cocktail was great!

    My group enjoyed brunch here on New Years Day. The omelettes were excellent however some of the other other food items on the bottomless brunch menu lacked flavor (ex the waffles). Additionally, our server took an extremely long time to tend to our table and at one point he forgot to put in our order that we had already been waiting for 20 minutes for!!! Needless to say, we will likely not be returning.

    Food was way overpriced and portions were small. Home fries came out cold. Waiter did not ask my wife if she wanted a drink, so she didn't bother ordering one, even though she intended to. Everyone was very nice and the ambiance was good, but the food was subpar.

    Went to New Year’s brunch. Fantastic! The sweet potato hash was one of the best things I’ve eaten! My only critique is that my husband didn’t care for the Bloody Mary mix. But, he just switched to the mimosas!

    The food was inexcusable. The prix fix menu for NYE briefed fine but executed terribly. Even our waiter said that they wouldn’t order most of the menu items and that the chef was incompetent and difficult to work with. 1/7 of our dishes was even decent. The dominant flavor of the evening was salt. Everything was over cooked. The fried swordfish wasn’t as good as a fish stick from Costco…. We honestly laughed at how bad the food was on our way out. The music was super loud. Bottom line is we’re not coming back. The only redeeming factor was that our waiter was incredibly friendly and very helpful.

    The food was creative and delicious. Carrot pasta and cauliflower risotto were a nice change of pace. The oysters are perfection. The surf and turf are both worth mentioning. A nice cut of meat cooked well and a delicious counterpart. The portions were just right. Blood orange upside down cake was delightful.

    Bad service! Christmas dinner was very good. $72 per person which includes unlimited buffet and carving station with an appetizer and dessert. So much food and impossible to eat it all. Since it was more of a buffet, the table service was not great. The server was not attentive, absent a lot. Getting water refilled was difficult. Getting another drink was difficult. Once we finished the appetizer we left the table to partake in the carving station and the buffet and came back to our appetizer plates still on the table. This left us with no place to sit down with our food. We watched him serve drinks and the table next to us and not remove our empty appetizer plates as we were headed to sit down. At $72 a head you never leave your station without clearing plates as you go. At $5 per head that is the norm. We were probably up from the table for 5 minutes. Plenty of time for the server to clear and especially as he saw us coming back to the table. When one of us went back to the buffet, the server delivered a drink but did not remove any empty plates from the table. So once again there was not place for the new plate of food. This was the not the place to “reuse” your plate and not the place to stack plates on top of each other. This was not Denny’s but was starting ti get the feel that it was. It was reservations and not all the tables were full and it was not a demanding evening for the server who appeared to lack an experience by not waiting stations and only waiting tables, barely. Not sure if we will return for a holiday meal. On Christmas you want an overall good experience and the service left a bad taste. And we couldn’t tell you the severs name because we never got a name.

    We combined a drive to DC holiday lights after two years of abstention with Christmas dinner at Teddy’s. One gets closer to the action with Teddy. Our 5pm reservation was promptly acknowledged, our coats were whisked away, and we had pre-dinner drinks in hand quickly. Our waiter took our appetizer and dessert orders, and pointed at the carving station and sides buffet that would provide our entrees. Appreciated among the appetizers (we were a party of four)were the beet salad and Oysters Rockefeller. Attentive meat carvers provided ribs of lamb,slices of ham, and cuts of salmon. We ignored the beautiful brown turkey. Favorite sides included the goat cheese cauliflower, creamed spinach, and mushrooms, with a special nod to the creamy, herbed mashed potatoes. Desserts included berry crisps and a design-your-own sundae. The restaurant was festively lit and filled with festive people, including a well behaved smattering of children. It was a warm port on a cold day, and we thank Teddy for its welcome, good food, fine service, and holiday atmosphere.

    We enjoyed our Christmas afternoon dinner. Carving station was perfect and we enjoyed all the endless sides. Dessert was a little lacking however. Wait staff were friendly and very accommodating but the table was wobbly and annoying. No salt and pepper at the table.

    Brunch was awesome. Good combination of menu options plus waffles and omelettes made to order. All of the food was fantastic and the service was exceptional. It’s a great option for a group that wants to catch up without the craziness of the full brunch buffet where someone is always getting up and standing in a line. Can’t wait to come back.

    We visited Teddys for Thanksgiving. We all agreed the food was the best. They overcharged us $50, which I did not realize until later that night. I recommend checking your bill thoroughly if you’re dining with a child to make sure you dont get charged the adult price.
