    Avoid this place with all cost!!! The customer service sucks!!!! It took for ever to get inside the bullshit as spot ... Then to top it off they didn't have enough food at all!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
