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.

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant. Decent options on the menu and the food was good. The staff was relatively friendly. The one real downside of this restaurant was the atmosphere. It was very loud, and hard to hear the person sitting across the table.

The food is amazing. Monday night is $5 margaritas & $3 tacos! Thursday is all day happy hour! The drinks are delicious, not weak either! The bartender, Walle, goes out of his way to accommodate the seating, drink and food requests. We loved this place...so much we went twice in 5 days. He even remembered us.More

We were in Washington and choose this restaurant after we viewed the White House. My wife enjoyed the Beef Bulgogi Bowl. Fortunately, she shared it with me also. Great textures and flavour! A most excellent level of heat! It was so good, we returned for...lunch on Sunday. Sadly this item was not on the Sunday brunch menu. Our server was excellent offering to see if the chef could make it. I opted instead for the Huevos Rancheros. OMG! So good. My wife enjoyed the chicken and waffles. Our waiter overheard it was my birthday. Surprised us with a complimentary Chocolate Chip Skillet. Also the GM dropped of a complimentary beer. Great service and attention to detail. Would highly recommend!More

...drinks only in the bar area, which was quite busy & noisy. The watermelon sangria sounds hip and trendy, but it was not good - quite improper I'd say. Our other traditional cocktails were fine, as was the service. I'm a little torn with the...5% fee and automatic 20% tip they add. I worked at bars and restaurants all during college, and never felt a tip should have been guaranteed. I wanted to earn it, not just collect it...More

The chicken sandwich is fantastic and the happy hour drink special is competitive. The restaurant is modern and very clean with friendly staff. The only questionable part is the menu states 5% fee as been added to support a city ordinance- this to me reads...5% has been added to the posted price as it reads Has Been not will be- the truth is it is will be added and the real cost of everything is 5% higher then what the menu says which goes straight to the owners pockets. I don't believe this wording is a mistake and it is sad to see the owner pulling a fast one on their guests. This would be a 5 star rating if it was not for his dishonesty.More

Definitely disappointed with my first meal in DC. We each had a different cocktail from the specialty menu and we all agreed they were terrible. The watermelon sangria had no watermelon flavor. The appetizers were very flavorful. Enjoyed the egg rolls and buffalo flatbread, but...my blackened salmon was served skin side up over watery mashed potatoes and had no flavor and a mushy texture. I tried to discuss it with the waitress but she just took my plate and walked away, and I ate leftovers from everyone else. The other’s meals were good, and they were not as disappointed.More

Overpriced and horrible service. Mac bites were cold, southwestern salad full of hard stems,. Burger was tasteless. The waitress never came by, other than to bring the check.

Loud! Did I say loud? What? Our server could barely hear us. Decibel level is at the "dangerous" level. We ordered vodka martinis with olives (specifically NOT a dirty martini when asked). Instead we got warm vodka in a whiskey glass with olives on the...top of the glass, unable to make contact with the drink. The server ran off so we tracked him down, and he replaced it, but with a cloudy whiskey glass of vodka and olive juice. No martini glasses - or knowledge of how to make a martini? - at a cocktail bar? The server must have known the drink orders were wrong before he set it on the table and dashed off to hide. The hamburger was good.More

We dropped in for a few drinks. Not a demanding couple and our order was the same each time. The place wasn’t busy but the chap on the maitre d counter sat on his phone constantly and the bar man wasn’t interested in serving us...for some reason. We had a couple and waited almost 10 minutes for a third round. The guy took so long we decided not to bother and to pay the bill. It’s a lovely bar but the service was so poor- for only 10-15 customers in the place this is unforgivable!More

Wife and I meet up here for dinner before attending a show at Warner. Yhe place was very crowded, but we had a reservation, so we were seated right away. We had a very nice waitress who took our drink orders right away and even...went the extra effort to make hot tea for my wife. Our food didn't take very long to arrive. We had the egg rolls and a bowl of chili for an appetizer. The egg rolls were really good with plenty of meat, and the chili was great with a nice little kick to it. For entrée I had the pork chops, it was a little dry, but the sauce really made up for it. The sauce was really good on the chop and went well with the mashed potatoes also. The bill wasn't bad at all, but there was a very long line to get in as we were leaving, so definitely make a reservationMore

Beyond subpar food. Crappy service. Was overcharged a drink which I didn’t realize and icing on the cake even though was charged 20% tip of almost $50 was never told gratuity was included. Even though service was crappy I still tipped 18% on top of...that. Called them the next day and was told my additional gratuity would be refunded, not done. Have contacted them through email with no response. Do not eat hereMore
