The rating should be higher than average, however due to the subpar service I was forced to lower from "Excellent" to "Average." The ambiance and location is outstanding. It is located in the historic Union Station in Washington, D.C. It is nicely appointed and has...More

I came here looking for southern food and I found it. Great atmosphere and food. Union Station which houses this restaurant is an impressive building. Service was fantastic and we ate more than we should have.

I attended the champagne brunch which was wonderful. There was huge selection of food and the food tasted great. The wait staff was attentive. I loved the ambiance of this location. It is located in the Union Station and has very tall ceilings.
