This was my first visit to this restaurant and it was a bday celebration. We made a reservation and were seated promptly when we arrived. It took a few moments for the server to arrive but he was actually very helpful and attentive. We had a seafood appetizer that wasn't on the menu which had shrimp, lobster, scallops and crab cake - all delicious. I had the scallops as my main course and my husband had the salmon -again it was absolutely wonderful. More than enough food! The butter pecan old fashion is out of this world! We had the baked Alaska for dessert!
It was a great evening and I will ceratinly return here when I back in DC!

Three of us went for dinner because we wanted the baked Alaska for dessert.
The restaurant was not busy, maybe half full.
Initially, we had a long wait before a waiter showed up. Before ordering drinks or entrees, we told him that we came because of this dessert.

We ordered. The food was good.

They cleared the table. We waited 40 minutes and no one came to offer coffee, drinks or dessert.
We finally asked someone to get our check and we left.

I won’t go back.
Ambiance is good. Food is good. Service was poor and the staff was not busy.

Horrible food, poor service and to add insult you take the time to email the corporate office and they do not respond. Try another restaurant.

They do not follow-up with the table and you have to ask for drink refills.

The salmon had no taste.

Came into town for a family birthday celebration. Contacted restaurant requesting table for 4 - candle for dessert ... Arrived a bit early - went to bar & enjoyed $1 oyster special.
Seated for Dinner - Appetizers were excellent, dinner selection of different fish was very good - the sauces however were not done well. Some were too sweet, pasta overcooked. Proceeded to dessert - birthday candle forgotten.

Fabulous food but expensive. We splurged with two in our party of three ordering the whole Dover Sole with the deboning presentation at table. Very knowledgeable and well trained waiter. Great scallops and loved shoe string potatoes. Quality of food was outstanding.
