    Ahi Tuna Tartare, Wagyu Carpaccio, Berkshire Pork Chop and the Gnocchi are all outstanding.

    Great food, cocktails, wine--but watch out: $10 for sparkling water instead of still. That's ridiculous for a place this expensive! Otherwise fantastic!

    They really make an effort to make wine an important part of the dining experience. There seem to be quite a few experts on staff.

    Go to the bar round 10p to grab a glass of wine and have a chill conversation with your date or pal. Ask 4 a sip before you order as 6oz glasses run anywhere from $12 to $20+.

    I love this place. Just had the Quinoa and wheat berry salad and butternut squash soup. Both awesome. Lamb burger and chickpea fries is still king though.

    Great room lined with wine racks. Charming service. Food is fabulous with a wide range of small plates cheeses and charcuterie. We loved the quinoa salad, tuna carpaccio octopus and desserts! Go there

    Big fan of this establishment. Like how they let you sample wines from the 'by the glass' list and don't push the upsell when recommending bottles. Tasty entrees, and busy but chill scene.

    One of my husband's and my favorite restaurants in DC. Fabulous food never disappoints. Sommeliers are great. Tell them your price point and what you like and you'll get something amazing.

    The foie gras is amazing! Perfectly crisp on the outside when you first bite into it. It then just melts in your mouth afterwards.

    Worst customer service experience I've ever had. Hostess was rude and barely made eye contact. Rushed is to table and didn't hand us menus. Sommelier and GM refused to serve me even with proper ID.

    You can never go wrong with the cheese board here. Or the tuna tartare. In fact, it is wrong not to order both. And the sticky toffee pudding cake.

    Foie gras is stellar. Duck breast comes with pasta and is spicy. Don't miss it if you like heat. Gnocchi and butter lettuce salad is great to share. Had all "family style" for 2 with Pinot noir
