Visited here during happy hour. Had cocktails which were very reasonably priced but took 15 minutes to arrive. Calamari was heavily battered and not very tasty. A burger on the other hand was really nice and at 5 dollars was a complete bargain. Bruchetta was tasty as were stuffed mushrooms. Overall a mixed bag which was saved by the excellent... More

Good for group meals. Nothing special. Service is a little slow. Standard atmosphere. Nothing special again.

We were a group of 8 people and were seated in one of the private enclosures so we did not get the full impact of the ambience of the restaurant. We had seafood platters with oysters from different regions, shrimps, tuna, crab meat served on ice. I had wild salmon from Scotland.my friends had Chilean sea bass, bouillabaisse, steaks. The...

We spent a week in DC for a work seminar. Just around the corner we found this gem when returning from afternoon at zoo. We stopped for a quick drink and the bartender smiled saying we had arrived at the best happy hour downtown. Drink specials and substantial happy hour appetizers proved the truth in that statement. Enjoyed ourselves tremendously,... More

Yesterday I had the honor of accompanying a veteran to M&S's event that hosted veterans for FREE. That alone is worth 5 stars in my book. However, even if they hadn't been so supportive of the U.S. Military, I would still be giving them five stars. Our server was Marshall and he couldn't have been friendlier (Can't say the same...

Had not been here in quite some time. Had a $25 Birthday credit from their club. Took a friend with me. Very, very good service - attentive but at a distance. He even asked from the get go if we wanted slower or quicker service. Very good fish and chips for my guest, and two crab cake entrée for me... More

Spend your money somewhere else. I had a group of 12 business associates out for dinner and spent over $1K on the evening. The service was horrible. You would have thought for a group this size and the money spent that we would have been attended to with more diligence and nearly constantly. Not the case. We waited for what... More
