Always exception service, food, ambiance and well priced. Wanted something local for my bday because I didn’t feel like going back into dc on a Friday night for dinner and it was great. It always is. The service is exceptional and the food is always on point. I love coming here. Can dress up or be casual. But the ambiance and vibe is very cool.

Lacked attention to detail. Oysters unshucked. Shells in oysters. Hair in the Sushi. Felt rushed out for 9:15 reservation. Staff was vacuuming around table at 10:15 (Wait until the restaurant closes). Men's restroom in bad shape. It had not adequately been cleaned during the evening. Worst experience at this restaurant thus far. May not go back.

Why do they put me at a bad table when the restaurant is almost empty? This is super irritating.

Second time here for dinner. Pleasant staff and service. The crabcakes are very good as is the sushi. Other seafood spots get more hype but this place is solid.

I went here with some family and friends for brunch and thought it was a great value. For $30 you get 2 courses and bottomless mimosas or bloody marys. I had the Eggs Chesapeake which was delicious and the crab cakes were mostly crab not filler. I also had the Fresh berries which were very good, but I wouldn't do those unless I was doing the combo. I also tried the shrimp and grits and they were some of the better shrimp and grits I have had at a restaurant. I wish we had a pitcher of mimosas to keep at our table so we could refill our own drinks, but overall very good!

the kitchen was a little slow, our waitress gave my wife a glass of wine to make up for it, the mgr. came over to apologize for the delay in getting our sushi. BTW, the wait was not that long. Excellent service and the waitress was fabulous.

We got there at 5:15 and they couldn't seat us until 5:30 - so we sat at the bar (happy hour was on), had lovely drinks. It was very noisy in the bar area so we asked to be seated in a quieter place for dinner. The room we moved to was very quiet and nice. We had the ceviche - absolutely divine! My friend had the Arctic Char and the brussel sprouts, I had the crab and corn soup and the beet salad. We shared a bucket of fries. Everything was delicious. They comped us a shared dessert of bread pudding with caramel sauce because it was my friend's birthday. My friend asked for them to prepare a take home container with her leftovers. Apparently they mistakenly threw out her leftovers - so they prepared the meal from scratch and gave it to her. That was truly amazing. It's on the expensive side but we both thought it was worth it.
