This was recommended to me by an insider who has been living in Washington since 3 years. If you want a good fillet steak-this is the place to be; but side dishes are extra-and you pay good dollars! Add wine and desserts, and a starter to share and you are in the 100 dollar per person each with tips. But worth for special occasions.

The food was great and we were served by Gracious Grace! However, the hostess who received us was very aloof. I think she thought we couldn't afford eating there, so she took us straight to the bar (she thought we were there only to drink??). We noticed the restaurant was empty so we asked why we couldn't get a table, only then did she give us a table!
The snobbish attitude of the hostess almost made us leave. But Grace thankfully was such a great waitron and the food was good and made it worth our stay.
Management should have a word with the hostess at the reception. She has the potential of single handedly destroying the reputation of the restaurant.

4 of us arrived on a Tues night for a 6:30 reservation. We were greeted and seated promptly. At that hour the place was less than half full, but filled up fairly quickly. Drink orders were taken and delivered after a somewhat longer wait than I expected given the empty seats. As 2 of the 4 drinks looked similar, and the server did not seem certain which was which, a round of tasting revealed that the drinks were not identified correctly by the server. The menu and wine list was standard steak house fare. Wine and appetizers were ordered and appetizers delivered on time. As we neared finishing our appetizers, I asked about the wine which had not yet been served. The server apologized for not telling us that what we ordered was not in stock! The wine list was returned and an alternative chosen. As our steaks were brought out, a bottle of what we originally ordered was delivered with the remark that they found it even though it was not listed as "in stock". The food was excellent and the steaks cooked perfectly.

It seemed as though the server was relatively inexperienced. Once the food was delivered the server was not seen again until dessert time. The manager came by shortly after we sat down to make sure we were doing fine, which we were at the time, but did not return
