Trademark is the neighborhood bar for a remarkable neighborhood. With a nod to our close friends at the U.S. Patent and Trade Office, we take our inspiration from the innovators whose once daring ideas set the standard.

Then knowing exactly what the standard is, Trademark enjoys nothing better than tweaking it. Someone else had the brilliant idea to combine pork with beans, macaroni with cheese and gin with vermouth. We simply came up with a way to make you think you’re tasting them for the first time.

The mixologists behind our bar program understand that some drinks are made to forget a hard day, others to foster inspiration, and still others to toast old friends and instant acquaintances. We also noticed that good things happen when the atmosphere is properly stimulating. You’ll find the mood at Trademark as comfortable as it is inventive.

Trademark is good at what it does, but not outstanding at anything. It has a pub style setting, drawing largely a young adult crowd plus hotel guests. (It’s in a Westin Hotel.) It boasts a long, large bar. The serving staff are efficient and welcoming. Entree offerings are limited to 5 or 6 and change infrequently. There is nothing imaginative about the menu. I question whether there is an actual, credentialed chef on board preparing food as it is ordered as opposed to being cooked earlier and zapped in a microwave just before serving. The draft beer choices are good. The noise level was moderate during our last visit, but the bar area can be very noisy. Bottom line: I see Trademark as a reasonable choice for guests of the hotel and others for whom it offers convenience. However, Alexandria has a lot of dining choices, some of which I would rate more highly in value and quality.

One of the servers, Senait, is the Cal Ripken of the establishment. She has been working there since the hotel opened in November 2007 and is the only person in the entire hotel who has worked there for so long.

Had the Restaurant Week menu. Everything was outstanding and I left stuffed like a Thanksgiving Turkey. Great deal with wine pairings an additional $10. Unlike hotel restaurants of the past, this one is better than normal -- not five-star, but very good.

The food was really good. The Mediterranean shrimp appetizer was good, the best part was the roasted tomatoes. For entrees, my fiance got the pork chop that was cooked to perfection. The sauce was so good, he used his bread to lap up the rest. I got the bass, which was a little dry, however, I did like the pairing with the jalapeno cream sauce. The risotto underneath was rich and satiating, everything you want a risotto to be. For dessert, the caramel macchiato tiramasu was a little rich for my blood and could have used a little less caramel to even out the sweetness against the coffee liquer infused lady finger. That being said, my fiance finished it with a smile.

I don’t usually choose to dine at restaurants attached to hotel chains. But we found ourselves here as part of the local area food week. I hadn’t expected to enjoy my app (they were mostly seafood), and there was a bisque- which I had never tried. But I ate the bisque and it was delicious. I am now converted. Despite being sufficiently full at this stage, I then couldn’t stop eating my beef pot pie. This was the best pot pie since I have lived in the States.
When they bought out my dessert - kit kat cheesecake, I thought there was no way I could eat this. But I did, all of it, and again it was so tasty.
I never order 3 courses, but it was part of a deal. I would have been satisfied with only one of these courses. My friend enjoyed her vegetarian options just as much.
Good ambience and easy parking after business hours

Upon arrival there were no staff for more than five minutes on the floor or behind the bar. No waiters, runners, bartender, busser, hostess. Once someone appeared, we received timely and courteous service. The food servings were sparse and the Crab Benedict eggs were overcooked. The side of fruit was clearly old. It felt like the food was an afterthought. Considering the brunch market in the DC area, the cost and value was poor for what we paid versus what we received.

The service was great. The salad I ordered was lackluster. It was a basic romaine topped with a seared tuna filet. The tuna was bland and had almost no browning at all. The sandwich the other person with me ordered looked better.

This is a great choice for pre or post movie dinner, as the AMC Hoffman is nearby. Yummy cocktails and delicious comfort food. A good hotel restaurant.

I was there for the event with the A. Smith Bowman Distillery, "A Spirited Evening". The handcrafted original cocktails were creative and delicious, the appetizers served during the event were wonderful, and the environment where we got to meet the Executive Chef and General Manager were very welcoming. My ladyfriend and I had a fantastic time, and plan to return with friends for an actual meal.

We picked this restaurant randomly as a midway point to meet some family members. My mom has some challenges with her mobility and they were wonderfully accommodating! The food was excellent, although they only offer brunch at 12:30 on a Saturday. But very good selection. We enjoyed our time and no one rushed us! Big thanks to the staff!

Food was an excellent value for the Restaurant Week. Tried to read the newspaper in the dining area and the lights were turned down so low that you needed a coal miner's light to see.

I believe I'll take my Petzl headband lamp on my next visit to make a point. Since this is primarily a business hotel during the week, whoever designed the lighting did not think that someone might need to read.

We had a business meeting in the area and spent the night at the Westin. The service was fast buy pieced together (food with no utensils and drinks without straws) small issues until I tasted the food. For the price, I expected more. The next day we used our breakfast voucher (gratuity was automatic and we only had two people) the order was wrong. I wouldn't go back becuase of the major discrepancy of quality verses price

Great local spot for conversation, good food and drinks. Very nice and friendly wait staff. You can just stop by for a drink or stay for dinner and won't be disappointed.

Went to Trademark for Sunday brunch. The menu lists fairly standard brunch fare, but everything was well prepared. The drink menu is the highlight of this Alexandria restaurant - really creative offerings and the bartender was on point. Every cocktail was perfectly mixed. The worst part of our visit was the service. Entrees came out at different times, and on person did not get his entree until almost 10 minutes after the rest of the table had gotten theirs. It was also difficult to get the attention of the server for drink refills, although the restaurant was half-empty. We will return and give this place another try however, as the Dino's were THAT good!
