I had to send my food bad twice. The best part of my meal was dessert. My drink order was bad as well..

This is a lovely restaurant convenient to Kennedy Center. Food,however, is very mediocre. The menu is not large with most entrees in the $30 range. I had the cedar plank salmon. Serving size was large but flavorless. I'm not sure whether it is due to the
quality of the seafood or its preparation. Others in our party felt the same. Dessert was very good!

We booked an early reservation for dinner prior to a performance at the Kennedy Center. A 10 min. walk from the Foggy Bottom metro stop, we had a nice table near the windows facing the Potomac. We each had a salad and then the fresh Arctic Char for our main course. The food was well-prepared with generous portions, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. The salads were lightly dressed and very fresh. The Arctic Char was also fresh and perfectly grilled. We did not have wine, but the wine and beverage selections seemed certainly adequate, if not copious. Following dinner, it was another modest walk down the waterfront to Kennedy Center. We will definitely come here again.

Dined here with a friend. The clam appetizer was awesome. The crab cakes delicious and the steak was good, but a bit salty. Our server, Sandra, was excellent and really warm and friendly. It was a weekend night and the Harbor was busy, excellent for people watching. I'd definitely go back.

we come here every time we are in DC-- the starters are large and ordering 2 can be a meal -- the mussels are a very large serving -- drinks are generous and well done --have always been happy with the offerings and specials-- view is wonderful -- Georgetown is right up the block and it's always fun to walk around after dinner-- highly recommend and will return

it was a great experience as usual - the only bad marks would be that: it was a bit noisy, and there was something going on with the eggs at the omelet station... they did not taste like real/actual eggs

We discovered this place through groupon. I guess you pay half the price and you get half the service. Rushing us through our meal, not checking on us so I have to ask 3 times to order a cocktails.
Maybe the server was afraid we are going to tip on the groupon price, which we could not do. But for sure he deserved that.

Great spot. T the turkey, leg of lamb, roast beef, honey ham, side dishes, oysters, shrimp, salmon, salads, and deserts were all absolutely amazing. Not one dislike or issue with any food items. The price ($45) was reasonable when you figure in all the choices (all-u-can-eat) compared to many other restaurants that served just an entree for nearly the same price. We have had the Sunday Brunch during the summer which was equally amazing, but this was above our expectations. Would have given this ten stars if possible.

Over the years the quality of the annual Thanksgiving meal continues to change to less quality of food. The only portion of the meal the remains quality is the Salad and seafood table.
The dressings this year were awful. The meals were not tasty, the deserts were showed no creativity nor imagination. There is to be mint sauce first the lamb to compensate for the dryness of it. The master potatoes were processed and the green beans just needed to be tossed out.
What has happened to the classy, topnotch TG meal of yesteryear is really disappointing . Next year we are rethinking returnig yet another year.

Great food, awesome ambiance! Hubby and I reserved a late evening appointment due to hectic schedules. Upon arrival we were impressed with the lighting and
romantic setting. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere reminded us of our date nights (pre- children) 20 years ago! Highly recommend.

The restaurant’s Dave Parra was especially kind and helpful in restoring the voucher that Groupon’s decidedly unhelpful website would not allow me to download or print.

I had dinenr there Friday November 9,2018 and man !!! Their food was great !!! I ordered I believe a honey salmon salad which was huge ! Then the pork chops with potatoes and Brussels sprouts. I was so full off the salad I couldn’t finish my actual dinner. Both were great. My waiter was always spot on and I never had to wait or ask for anything. He would notice our glass was getting low and would come back to refill. I can’t wait to go back !!!

The food was very good! The server had no personality and only came to the table
To drop off food or drink. The fire alarm in the building went off while we were dining and stayed on for about 15-20minutes. The manager did come around to speak to each table and explain that there was no emergency, which I appreciated. Over all, I would suggest this place for good food and a great view of the waterfront.. but don’t expect much else outside of that

The service was excellent, the food well prepared and seating was comfortable -- not cramped. The view of the water at dusk into the night was lovely along with the general ambience of the restaurant was perfect for a romantic and cozy anniversary celebration. It's also great for just a fun night out.
