    I was going to say the filet mignon special was amazing and a must have...and then I had the shrimp and polenta....soooo good, one of the best things I've eaten in awhile. Skip the mac and cheese

    The "Pearfect Martini" (Grey Goose Pear , Orchard Pear Cordial, St. Germaine, Champagne) was beautifully crafted. Very light + delicious. Highly recommend. Great DJs, too. Loved the old skool hip-hop.

    This place is incredible. Get the Thai shrimp, hangar steak, tuna tartare. Get the rum old fashioned to compliment it. Then head upstairs for some dancing. One of my favorite spots in DC.

    There is a great amazon local deal going on right now for this place. We loved every dish we tried. Especially like how vegan & gluten free friendly they are

    Pretty good brunch, but found the dark lounge decor & cramped booths not so appealing on a sunny Sunday morning. French toast benedict was delish, but may require an extra 2 hrs at gym afterwards!

    Yes, the DJs here change the music every thirty seconds, but it's a fun place to go dancing with a great, graffiti-y vibe.

    Amazing waitstaff - very knowledgeable about the menu. Get the sweet potato gnocchi, beets and chocolate waffle if any of these three dishes are on the menu when you dine there.

    Truffle fries at happy hour are pretty good. Sadly neither the lentils nor the green beans are vegetarian, and the black bean hummus is disappointing.

    Brussels sprouts! One of the few places on 14th you can usually sneak into on a weekend evening

    Perfect brunch portions. Get the short rib hash and truffle grits as a side.

    Try the Mission Fig Salad, the duck confit, and the sweet potato gnocchi....also the Moscow Mule and Hemingway Daquiri rocked! My wife loved the Cosmo-policy!

    Great DJ on Fri. & Sat. Nights upstairs but get in the door before 11pm to make it worth it. Otherwise wait gets loooong.

    Quaint lounge right off of U St. The happy hour specials are decent and the drinks pack a punch.

    Bottle service is worth it. No tanks, cut off tees, or sandals - damn shame. Fun playlist on weekends.

    This place is so much fun! The 90's and 2000's music wasn't really doing it for me though.

    Ryan is the best server ever. Seriously. Don't even let anyone else serve you, as you will not get the experience you deserve.

    $5 small plates happy hour lasts until 8 pm. Menu items vary by season. Truffle fries for the win.
