    Disappointing meal. Mussels themselves were fine but broth bland. Honey smoked salmon on salad was overly salty and not good. Service slow even though restaurant not busy. View was great.

    I was SO disappointed with this restaurant which is a staple for Washington, DC (it's been in Georgetown for decades!). The service was slow; the dinner rolls (which you have to ask for) were rock hard they were so stale; the mixed green salad with apple came with TWO small pieces of apple; none of the vegetable sides were seasoned; and if I hadn't had a groupon for the prix fixe menu, we would have spent more than $150 on this mediocre experience. I will NEVER eat here again, and I would never recommend it to anyone, either. Honestly, if you want to eat by the waterfront and want seafood, just go right across the way to Nick's (which also has groupons!).

    Very average for the price. Probably much nicer doing sunnier times with no flood walls blocking their view and ambience. But the food just wasn’t hot and was very bland at a $$$ price.

    The food was good but pricey for portions. Our waiter was not very attentive and only checked on us twice. Runners brought food out, appetizers were very prompt, entree was delivered after a lengthy wait and the fish tacos were semi warm, like they had sat awhile. Overall the food was good and the atmosphere was nice.

    I have had many fun dinners at Tony and Joe's. I was shocked to arrive and see a barrier up basically locking down the view of the water front as they renovate the boardwalk. I didn't get a heads up from the restaurant and I was bringing an out of town guest to enjoy some crab cakes with a margarita and a view. She was a good sport about it....I was not. I don't care if a restaurant wants the business during a slow period - if you are known for the view as well as the food and the view has changed - it would have been nice to have been given a choice to go or not before arriving and finding a desolate restaurant. Having a choice is always good business and a thoughtful jester guarantees you'll come back once the work is completed because of the consideration. If we are paying an extra service charge on top of tip - I think you can step up here! Incredibly disappointing.

    The mixed green salad was great but it needed more tomatoes. The Caesar salad was fine but nothing special. The bottle of prosecco was good and well priced. My biggest issue was with the entrees. The salmon was mostly flavorless and the Mahi was dry. My friend said that seafood steam pot was good, but he added that it is hard to mess up a seafood boil. The desserts were good options.

    Our dinner was very delayed even though we told them we had a show at the Kennedy Center. My chicken dinner did was served 30 minutes after the other 5 dinners had been served. Our server did take the chicken off of the bill. We had to find the server each time we wanted to know what was going on. He did not tell us what was happening and why my dinner was delayed. We were very disappointed.

    My first visit in Valentine's Day was not good at all since I was expecting to use my Groupon and the owner/manager argued with me even when it did not state that the Groupon could not be used on holidays and Valentine's Day. His spouse was great and after some time, she agreed that it did not say that and was going to allow me to use it. This time, March 15, 2024, it was so much better. He was still a little angry but the service was great.

    We were one of three tables in the whole restaurant on a Friday evening. Reservation system wouldn't allow me to change my reservation from 5:30 pm to 6 pm despite the restaurant being almost completely empty. I order two things - a lemonade and shrimp tacos. I received an iced tea and fish tacos. They also told me they didn't have any sparkling water despite a bar making cocktails containing sparkling water. I was here with friends from out of town and was so embarrassed to have brought them here.

    A friend and I went for Sunday night dinner on Super Bowl Sunday, so the restaurant was not crowded and we were able to hear one another very clearly. The food was delicious; each of us had seafood. Our server Alex was excellent in the room is beautifully situated looking over the Potomac river, and the illuminated Kennedy Center. This is a favorite destination of mine and highly recommended.
