We were late for our reservation but received probably some of the best service I’ve ever experienced. Our server was right on top of making sure we got our dinner. She knew exactly what to offer because we were using a groupon and it went perfectly.

Food was great! Service was not that great. We went for my husband birthday. We even told the server that it was his birthday and nothing.

We enjoyed a view of the Potomac River and the Kennedy Center while dining here. The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. The server was attentive and friendly. We used a Groupon for two - 3 course meals (plus two glasses of house wine), which was an outstanding value!

I requested a table with a river view and that was exactly what we got. Our waiter was fantastic. None of us are big eaters, so it was a little pricey for what we ate. The noise level was high, but there is a lot of glass and Sunday brunch is popular, so that’s to be expected. Overall a very nice brunch.

With Groupon, it's an excellent deal and you don't have to wait for restaurant week. Service, food and ambiance are great with easy access from Georgtown or Kennedy Center. A+

Went with my husband and kids. Got to our table and I was seated in front of a plant that was hovering from behind. The table was round and had the small leaf that were not properly fitted. We asked to be moved. We were there a good 7 minutes before someone came to the table. Once seated at another table we waited about another 5-8 minutes before our waiter came. Took our drink order and appetizers. Nothing terrible there. Main course arrived and I had to send back the pork chop because it wasn’t thoroughly cooked. Kids enjoyed the broccoli and carrots while we waited for the chop to come back. Our meal was done and our waiter never asked us how the food was. We saw him a total of three times during our meal. We waited a long while to get our check. We paid our bill and before we even got our belongings the waiter was rushing to grab the check. He reached over my husband while he was trying to get his coat on. It was just rude behavior all the way around.

We dined on a Sunday evening at 7:30 so quiet in restaurant except for arguing couple at close by table. I had the mahi-mahi which was delicious but my two companions were not impressed with their crab cake sandwiches. One of them found pieces of shell in the crab. Both said it was rather tasteless. Wait staff seemed a little rushed and unfriendly thru the meal even though restaurant not busy. But didn’t rush us out at end of meal. Overall it was a pleasant atmosphere at our window table where we could see ice skaters and Christmas decorations outside. Will possibly return again.

It was to celebrate my sister in law’s birthday. The service was excellent and they (the staff) were very accommodating. I was amazed at the choices of food available and the quality of it

First time at the restaurant.. salmon and shrimp and crab dip are amazing..but the Chesapeake Boil was less than desirable.. it was mediocre at best.. no crabs or crab legs available.. my cocktail tasted different on the 2nd round.. the prices were a little high for the quality..

I read some of the reviews on Yelp and they concerned me. However, one reviewer said she was glad she went without reading them. I feel the same. This place was amazing! The food was great, the service was great and the view was great. I will definitely be going again.

Very cozy place with excellent view of the small ice skating rink in the winter and the Potomac in the warmer weather. Food was very good . All around a very nice place and will go back next time in DC.

Our server was overwhelmed and his customer service was suffering due to his inability to manage all his customer needs. I am looking forward to visiting the restaurant again and give a better review.

Thanksgiving dinner was delightful...and got to meet "Tony". Will definitely do this again. Oysters galore, smoked salmon, the whole nine yards. Concierge picked a nice table for us facing the water. Good time was had by many.

Always a fun atmosphere, the food was delicious and even provided something to be thankful for, for folks who don't eat meat or seafood. But the turkey and seafood where spectacular!

Went on a cold and rainy night. It was noisy. However we had never been to Washington Harbor and this is the restaurant we chose among the many featured by OpenTable. The food we had (fish) was excellent and well presented. The waiter we had was very attentive. I imagine that this place is even better in the Summer when the doors overlooking the Potomac are open and the noise somewhat spread to the outdoors. So, this was a great place for a casual date and not really for a secluded romantic dinner.

Birthday celebration with my fiancée. The manager and server were great but the food was really bad. We tried two appetizers, two entrees and two desserts. Just disappointing, especially for the price point. Would not recommend

I presented a Groupon at the beginning. I think the waiters service was dismissive and inattentive. If the goal is to get you to come in and check out the experience with a Groupon then act like you want me there.

We had the steam-pot and I was so disappointed with the lack of seasoning. Not a lot of attention to detail here. Also, their brownie wasn’t that good. An ok experience at best. But their mixed greens salad was delicious and Joey our service was nice.

The setting and service were marvelous--right next to the Potomac River with a beautiful view of the river, Theodore Roosevelt Island, and the Kennedy Center. The food, however, was not that marvelous. Our lunch was marred by the number of pieces of shells in our crab cake sandwiches. Our group was constantly picking out shell pieces from the crab cake. Not good.

Was not what we expected. The food was ok, not exceptional which we thought it would be! Maybe in the warmer months with the water view it adds something.
Not interested in going back
