    An elegant DC classic. "Start with the foie gras or beef crudo two ways and move on to a main course of Alaskan halibut or rack of lamb." -Michelin Guide on TripExpert Read more

    Came for restaurant week, so I haven’t tried the normal menu, but everything was incredible. Dress up and get ready for a very, very nice dining experience

    Make sure to let them know if you are celebrating a special occasion. They will take wonderful care of you regardless, but there are some extra touches that make the evening even more special.

    Asparagus soup with goat cheese toasts and the foie gras on carrot cake are both a must! Also, the carrot cake dessert comes with a side of cream cheese frosting ice cream. Yum!

    Incredible sit down restaurant. While it is very expensive, it is one of the best dinners in DC.

    Delicious and interesting food combinations. Service rather brusque and lacking in attention to details.

    A meal without wine is surprisingly reasonable given the ambiance and level of service.

    Food was not to the same par as service and price. I've had way better for less, and enjoyed it without the suggestion of a jacket and stuffy service.
