First time I have tried the prix fixe. Outstanding and unlike some chef's tables there are options for each course. Very creative dishes. We were blow away. I am returning soon. Service excellent.

The atmosphere was picturesque; soft music and lots of natural light. The food spectacular; crab quesadilla, chicken potstickers & Mac & cheese. The mimosa was refreshing! I will certainly be back.

Truly superb dining! The dishes were unique and the flavors were outstanding. The setting was the perfect ambiance! We really enjoyed the intimacy of the restaurant and the complimenting music. I was a little bummed that my special request wasn’t acknowledged for dessert to be brought out with a candle for my fiancée’s birthday but nevertheless we had a great experience and will return if we are back in town. And yes, the Dope Juice is just as good as they say it is.

Food was to die for. Had their hangover dish from the Sunday Brunch menu. Everything was hot, cooked to perfection. The jalapeno cornbread was perfectly baked and was moist rather than hard and crumbly. The goat mac and cheese! It was all amazing. The portion size was more than enough. Go!

My boyfriend and I had our anniversary there and we couldn’t have had a better experience. The food and service was amazing (I could literally eat the nitro shrimp and grits every day of my life) and we highly recommend getting the dope juice!

Close personal venue. When I say Close and personal, the waiter stopped chatted up and was engaged all night, the chef came out from cooking and conversed with all parties that were there that night. There was a great deal of care and love put into the menu. I will say the salmon was immaculate, the ny strip was amazing, the chicken dumplings rivaled some of my favorite asian spots, his chilli was as good as my uncles, and vegan ice cream :/ WHO KNEW????
The time, and venue were honestly the best spot weve stopped in dc, md, va; she rated it right above cafe44 and thats her favorite lol....And if you are of age get a carafe of the Dope Juice.....phenomonal.

Thank you Chef, and staff, we will be back.

Went there for anniversary. Food was delicious and so filling. Chicken dumplings were amazing as well as everything else. The chef came and talked to us after the meal and we told him how great the food was. You can see the chef cook from the table and meal feels very personal.

Came in for their Valentine’s Day experience. It was absolutely great. I gather this usually runs as a take out spot for the most part but they made it look cute for the occasion. Every portion of food that was provided tasted amazing. I can not believe I have not been here before. I will definitely be coming back to order from their regular menu.

I had a wonderful experience at Water for Chocolate from the time I arrived until the time I left the service was emaculent. Our server was Caleb and he was GREAT! He answered all of our questions and he made suggestions on dishes since this was our first time there. The food was so very delicious. We had the four course meal and they give you plenty of food. I enjoyed each food selection but the crab meat and shrimp chowder with the jalapeño cornbread was my favorite. I will definitely be returning. Signed a happy and satisfied customer!!!
