Everything was good and some of the courses were frankly fantastic. 5 courses (3 as part of restaurant week and two as a bonus). Started with the pork belly terrine. Rich, fat melting perfectly over a crispy bread. Didn't feel greasy. Second, a smoked duck...More

The gazpacho was about the best I have tried. The scallops and ahi were excellent, too. And the service was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend The Grille for a excellent meal.

We visited this hidden restaurant, ensconced in a small hotel in Old Town Alexandria. There were four of us, on a family reunion. The place is next to a Greek restaurant, so it is easy to walk into the wrong place. Inside, the hotel is...More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. My wife had the pork belly and I had the bison steak. Everything was so thoughtfully prepared, and the flavors hit really unique tones. The piano player provides just the right ambiance, and the small scale of the dining room...More

We've lived in Alexandria for years and have never dined at the Morrison House. Always heard rave reviews. When we saw a TravelZoo promotion, we pounced. I honestly cannot say that we were "Wowed!" but it was pleasant, the food absolutely delicious, despite being modest...More

The Eggs Benedict were prepared just right. The bacon was crisp. The service was exceptional. The price was a bit high.
