I go to Saphire frequently. Nice staff, clean, excellent food at very reasonable prices. In nice weather having the deck "Tiki bar" is a real added pleasure. Music, and sunshine are a nice break in the day.

Was there on a dead (Tuesday) nite, but the jukebox here is badass. Great if you find yourself in Bethesda on a random nite.
