Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very pleased with the food. Most of the time we were there, we went early for dinner 4:30pm, after a big day visiting museums and sight seeing. First night we sat outside when the restaurant was full inside, not too cold but we have jackets...and they had their outdoor heaters on. Other times we managed to get a table inside. Best to book but we were able to get a table without booking. The food was very nice. I had the shrimp pasta with sun dried tomatoes and another occasion, the shrimp and crab meat risotto. When we went there tonight, I asked for my fettuccini to be cooked Al Dante and I was glad it was cooked to how I enjoy my pasta (first time it was too soft). My husband had the bbq pork ribs and pork cutlet, on a separate occasion, he enjoyed them both. We also shared a farmer’s garden salad which we requested to have the dressing on the side, they did just that. Definitely worth going as they have an extensive menu, cocktails as well. Staff are friendly too.More

Whenever we have family visiting us in the DMV, this is the go-to spot. Such a great range of dishes and food appealing to folks with all sorts of diets, from fresh veggies to flame broiled steaks, you can really find a little bit of...everything. The service is usually very good, but there is generally a long wait so I would recommend to make a reservation if possible. Can’t go wrong with the black pepper wings and cheddar biscuits to start. For entrees, the burgers are absolutely delicious, can’t go wrong with any. But I usually go with the St. Louis ribs or BBQ glazed pork chops. If you still have room for dessert, get the death by chocolate to get yourself in a true food coma. Overall been coming here for years, always hits the spot and great way to impress any visitorsMore
