I go here often when I'm visiting my daughter at GWU. It's a big menu, and I've had crab cakes, fish entrees, appetizers, plus wine and beer. They do a great job, super friendly staff, good specials. This is a great restaurant, don't miss it.

I met some friends here for dinner. One of my friends had been here before and wanted to come back just for the gazpacho. The menu was a bit froufrou, but I'm always game for trying new places. Our waiter was great. He allowed me...More
