I went here with my husband for a romantic meal, and as always, it was a wonderful experience. Food was excellent, love the decor, and I highly recommend it for a special occasion!

The Majestic is a must visit restaurant on King Street. The food never disappoints, menus are refreshed seasonally, service is friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is always lovely. Recommend you book ahead as it routinely fills up during dinner hours.

The Majestic has been penalized in my review due either to a lack of attention to detail or not valuing their customer. I cannot be sure which and they only received a three because they did make it right. In my opinion, making things right is insufficient for ensuring things are right in the first place. My disappointment began with... More

I had started back to lunch here after an absence of a few months, and wondered what seemed to be missing. Wines had changed, cocktail brands were off the shelves and the menu was slightly different. After a few questions, I learned that new management had recently taken hold. A veloute, a style which had been often on the old... More

First time back to our old favorite since the new management took over. We were underwhelmed. Everything seems sweetened. Risotto required a lot of salt and pepper on my part to rid it of its sweet taste. The scallops that were also in the dish were cooked well. The jury is still out but the uniqueness of the Majestic is... More

The Majestic has been our “go to” place in D.C. for many years. I have neglected to write a review, but have referred to it in other reviews as a measuring stick against other restaurants. I have used it for special occasions, for a meeting place after court in Alexandria and for having a convivial meal at the bar after... More

Always delicious, modern, American food. The chef uses ingredients that are indicative of the season so the menu changes seasonally. Ambience is good, simple, and elegant. I seriously have not had a bad dish here!

I had an amazing dinner with friends on Friday. We shared several appetizers, and filled up quickly. Everything I ordered was fabulous. As I said above, the brussels sprouts were amazing, and I really dislike them. I highly recommend the mussels and the scallops as well. Make sure you dine here if you don't get to Old Town Alexandria often.

The wife and I visited this restaurant after walking around Alexandria on a Saturday morning. We ordered and shared a fresh an appetizer of chargrilled octopus that included yukon potatoes, lemon emulsion, and garlic. It was very good and we almost ordered another plate. I had the lobster roll that was over flowing with lobster meat. It was dressed with... More

Finally paid a visit to this posh restaurant for lunch in Old Town Alexandria right after Christmas. The restaurant is upscale, swank atmosphere and busy. Menu of American style food has a good amount of choices. We had the steak and cheese, mushroom soup, and BLT. Each was superb. Service was also very good for the most part. They have... More
