The service here is awful. Stopped in for a weekend lunch and waited ten minutes for the server to initially approach our table after we were seated. The server had an attitude and clearly didn't seem to care about her job or the customers. The beer list is very good, but could use more selections from the midwest and Oregon.... More

Everyone in our party of 6 had been there but me. Duck fat fries were ordered immediately as well as another time during the meal. Amazing creative choices. Burgers, pork belly, duck confit, lobster grilled cheese. Great beers and martinis.

Great ambiance and good food options. They had many restaurant staples with their own twist. Had duck fat fries, mussels and the Denver Steak... all excellent.

Last year I ate lunch here and had a good but not extraordinary salad so I did not understand the hype surrounding this restaurant. Recently I had another lunch here and ordered the Rosti which consisted of perfectly prepared scrambled eggs topped with smoked salmon on a beautiful potato latke accompanied with Gruyere and a perfect crème fraîche. Now I... More

Had the occasion to have lunch at the Victoria Gastro Pub in Columbia, MD. My waiter Livingston was friendly, prompt to meet my needs, and ensured my order arrived in record time. My Wagyu burger with Gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and mushrooms, house pickles, and Aioli was perfectly cooked, very tasty, and worth every cent. The side I chose (one... More

The burger with mushrooms and truffle cheese for sure is one of the best burgers I've had in a pub! The buns, the patty, the sauce, everything was how it's supposed to be. Great place!

We have visited this restaurant during past trips to Columbia but we're shocked when we arrived for lunch a bit after opening and was told the only tables available were in the bar. Since we had an infant with us we weren't thrilled but they said they had a bar top high chair. It was awkward at best. I walked... More

I was taken to this establishment with a business group of 10. Suffice it to say, if I were to wander out of the rain forests of Borneo after being lost there for weeks with no food or drink, rather than eat here, I would most anxiously re-enter the forest and resign myself to eating bark, leaves and the occasional...

Ask for a table with Octavius. Fries are the best. Especially with their special ketchup!! Beer selection is also great.

We showed up a little later in the evening and they were packed. We waited about 30 minutes and it was well worth the wait. The menu is unique,the food very good and the service was great.
