Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed the food and experience very much. Wine and beer, appetizers especially fish/raw bar really good. Menu has something for everyone. I see why foodies like. The scallop and mussel dishes very popular. But the burger and pizza were great too. Long wait in between courses snd pricey when drinks added. But the chocolate bread pudding w cognac syrup was incredible! Will be back!

“Lovely lunchtime experience.”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

It was a last minute choice but a good one. The three of us all enjoyed our choices, the presentation was fab and the food very well prepared. The portions however were on the small side for the prices charged. I am not a big eater but found the portion of diver scallops to be almost appetizer size - even a bit more salad would have made the dish more complete. It was absolutely delicious & the flavors melded perfectly. Next time I must remember to order an appetizer before the main.

“Save room for dessert”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Forget the negative reviews! If you like fabulous food, drink and a nice atmosphere, this is the place for you! I will admit that I only had 2 appetizers (edamame- best ever! And fried artichoke hearts with some fabulous sauce) but that gave me room for dessert...the dark chocolate brioche bread pudding with cognac sauce!!!!!! Heavenly! Thanks to a lovely bartender that gave me excellent beer recommendations, I had a wonderful dining experience! Yes, it is pricier than the basic, boring chain restaurant butthere is a reason for that. The chef is creating culinary works of art! And, as a beer snob, I would highly recommend their beer list...don't be thrown off by the name. It is not excessively loud, or pretentious...it is divine!

“Though noisy atmosphere, an enjoyable evening.”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Seating was quick though service was a bit slow on this busy evening. Heirloom pizza good, calamari appetizer was made excellent with sauce. Wide variety of beers made selection of beverage difficult; bartender came to rescue. Unusually busy evening caused significant amount of noise in the room.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Just had lunch at this place (new to me in Bethesda; I don't know how long it's been there. I ordered a diver scallop salad. The scallops were about the size of four quarters, stacked -- no exaggeration. That they were so thin must be the explanation for why they were so overcooked. There were five. There was no point in even cutting them in half. Then pretty basic salad greens and some nuts. $19. The waiter was not attentive and didn't get our order right. I couldn't get his attention to get another drink. But the busboys, who are not making much, WERE paying attention. I wanted my tip to go to them. I'll know better next time. ANd I'll go elsewhere. Won't be trying here again.
