Ok....so this isn't a five star venue so don't critique it like it should be? Went with some friends for a night out, it was pretty busy. Table service was decent and fast considering the crowd. The food isn't anything to rave about but the...More

Usually go to honest lawyer at least once every two months. Their drinks are fairly priced and the bartenders are great at recommending drinks, their food is kind of bland but it's definitely more of a bar. At night the dance floor gets really packed...More

Went here with a group of 8. Although the waitress was friendly, the service stunk as did the food. The wings weren't tossed in sauce because "they didn't have enough bowls" but yet when a person in our party had been there on a busier...More

I have been to this place numerous time and can say that I will never go back. The service was awful. The waiter was new and had no support. Two other staff were there and they decided to play pool rather then help him. It...More

If you're looking for something different to do in the byward market, I highly suggest visiting the Honest Lawyer. Service was great, bartenders recommended a few cocktails that I loved (and I'm fairly difficult when it comes to drinks)! My buddies ordered 'Beerzookas', and the...More
