This is only the second restaurant I've come across with outstanding mussels. The other was in Napa. Three dozen mussels in a steaming hot iron pan in a wine sauce, for $20.00. The sauce was to die for. If you are a mussel lover, come on down!

Love this place so much! Try to stop in whenever in town. It's small so try to beat the dinner rush. Their mussels are amazing and so is the charcuterie!

Bold statement, right? The chef has some wonderful specials. I usually end up with three appetizers and an entree. Way too much food, but when else can I experience such great food.

Really cute little bistro-style restaurant with a modern twist. Staff were friendly and amenable and the food was sublime - I don't think I've ever had such beautifully cooked chicken before. Worth leaving the DC area to visit this place and Alexandria itself - such a cute town.

Had what the menu described as a butternut squash with pumpkin seeds tart. It was a flat-bread pizza. It tasted okay. Too doughy.

I had wonderful mussels and a small pizza (tart). Both were delicious. A very good wine list as well with some great choices by the glass.
