I love coming here for date night or a night out with friends. The cocktails are delicious and they are very conscientious about celiacs. They cook in separate pans and are very knowledgeable about what is in their dishes. More

This was a return visit to a very nice Hotel Restaurant. The food was good, though the "fried chicken" was very dry.....even when on of our party asked that it be replaced, and it was, it was replaced with "fried chicken" that was also very dry..... We asked if it was truly fried, and found out it is Baked and Fried .....thus part of the problem. The other food items were quite good. Best of all was the service. Our server was very attentive, and so good, we will return! More

Steakhouse | Tysons Corner / McLean, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Food as always was great. Was surprised--because it's never happened before--that the waiter was very inattentive, almost borderline--but not quite--rude. We had to ask for bread and he seemed a beat put out by it. What we got clearly wasn't fresh. I asked for a tomato juice and was given half a glass. The coffee was cold. Food itself was terrific. When we paid, the waiter disappeared. When we flagged him down--finally--he said the computer had gone down. If it had, why hadn't he let us know? Miraculously, it came up a minute later. I love Ruth's Chris. I was surprised by all of this. More

Had a date with my wife and asked for a romantic table. My first table was facing a building which was not romantic at all. After we moved everything was fine. Teddy took great care of us and would recommend you ask for him if you plan on dining there. Will be back! More

Asked them to turn down the music and they did to better enable conversation. Food is very good. Be sure to ask for tap water if you care since they tend to push bottled. More

Freddie's is my neighborhood bar. They have an incredible "Crazy Hour" from 4-8pm with great discounts on beverages and bar food. Their papusas are awesome when paired with a drink or two. They have an incredible Sunday brunch that's great to bring your friends with champagne and mimosas. They have great deals of Taco Tuesday and 1/2 price burgers on Wednesday. On Wednesdays, drag bingo also makes it a lot of fun. I can't say enough great things about this place. Freddie is a great guy that does a lot for the Arlington community and the staff really make you feel great. More

French | Woodbridge, Virginia - DC Suburbs

The service at this lunch was very good. The food was as usual very good too. Just a little more supervision over food quality would have made it perfect. There were no lobster pieces in the lobster bisque. On this occasion there was a large holiday party; think next time I will inquire before booking as the parking lot was very full and hard to park in and the noise level high. More
