    Nice staff. Quite possibly the most superficial crowd in DC. If you cant cannot tolerate douche bags & bleach blonde bimbos- AVOID THIS PLACE!

    Overpriced drinks that are NOT made well. We got our own table so we could mix our own drinks. Did NOT want to go back 2 the bartenders.

    Cheesy bar. Wanna-be crowd. Less than mediocre food. Bartenders dressed like hookers.

    Crab Cake Sliders are not worth it. Stick with the Angus Sliders an potato fries.

    Easily skip this place. Mediocre food and service, and way over-priced. Used to be better when they did 3 cities on rotation, made it a bit more interesting at least.

    the bon bon au chocolate is good - place is pricey overall. the ambience and the wide open spaces are a good plus tho, along with separate spaces divided by the bar esp afterhours.
