    Kendra was an awesome bartender tonight. Even though the place was packed, my date and I were seen in a prompt fashion and were excellently taken care of. The ambiance was awesome, the band was great

    If you get the tuna steak, ask that it's prepared medium. Mine was dry but tasty.

    This place gets packed quickly, but its worth it if you like establishments with a grown, mature crowd. The clientele is somewhat saddity but the food is great!

    Great spot to listen to all the R&B cover bands in DC ! With a go-go twist of course ;-). Favorite speciality drink: Peach Sangria !

    $10 cover after 8 is ridiculous. Service is slow. But clearly due to training not any fault of the staff.

    On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays are pretty good nights at Half Note, but on Wednesday nights they have an older crowd around 50 and older for hand dancing and ball room-like dancing...

    Jambalaya penne pasta was great. And you can order without the andouille sausage which makes it even more awesome.

    Food is good bit the servers could use some white glove service training. Just a bit like clearing appetizer plates before serving the entree so we don't have to hold dirty plates ourselves.

    The jambalaya penne pasta was off the chain. Nice size shrimps. Great jazz. Drinks were high, but its worth at least stoppin through for a minute to check it out. Read more

    I had the seared scallop appetizer. Yummy! It includes a similarly seasoned shrimp on top of a fried grit cake. That was tasty! I don't like grits but that thing was a cheese-filled (2 kinds) treat!
