Capitol Bistro: what do users think?


Denise Walker: Very disappointing. The service was good, however it was extremely expensive. For one slice of toast and half an avocado it was 15.00. I was outraged. It was 21.00 for a Caesar salad with one thin slice of grilled chicken. I don’t mind paying for good food, but I couldn’t get passed the 15 dollar avocado toast and the puny Caesar salad. If you are going to serve food, go all the way and do it right.

Kelly Behlen: The fancy placard out front says 10pm. "Are you closed?" "Yeah, we closed." "Your sign right here says you're open until 10, and it's 8pm." "Don't pay any attention to the times on there. Order online." "If I wanted to pay $10 more just for not having to literally take an elevator down from my room, sure." Their hours are a lie, so don't plan this unless you call.

Stergios Manakos: We waited at list 30min. for a table. We ordered 1 greek salad, 1 Caesar salad and 1 salmon dinner. . Greek salad was the worst ever. Cucumber cut into small cubes they include 1 grape tomato cut into four pieces and few crumbs of feta cheese (mostly was Cucumber salad). I didn't enjoyed at all. I only took one bite that's all. We asked for another Caesar salad instead but they refused us. Salmon dinner was thin slice of salmon with maybe two tablespoon of corn. Bill came to $85 They just didn't care. You be the judge

Paul Zhang: I have breakfast over here. It was very nice. I choice breakfast buffet. Breakfast buffet time 06:30-10:30. The food was delicious 😋! It’s very nice convenient restaurant! A lot of people come here ate breakfast!!! Good service!!! Flavorful salads. Home - made soups. Traditional bistro entree’s with imaginative twists. Desserts 🍨 and wines to savor.👍👍👍👍👍

Bob B: I repeated a meal I had a couple years back. French Onion soup and Crab Cakes. Good but not as good as last time. Broth was beefy but salty. Crab Cakes were a bit mealy with filler. I asked for extra Old Bay on the side to account for the lack of it in the cakes. That helped as I like my Old Bay after 30 years in Baltimore. Service was upscale and so was the price. I'll try it again next time perhaps.

Milana K: Good breakfast! Sweet employeesFood was fresh and was a good variety

P C: Good restuarant in the Holiday Inn - Capitol. Food is good. Try the salmon. There is also a bar area. Good prices and large menu

Dustan D: Breakfast Buffet was excellent, service was amazing, made to order omelets and otherwise great selection. Was a bit pricey at $17 per person

Vickie Credeur: Breakfast was extremely overpriced, we had pancakes and juice/coffee for 3 and was over $70

Clydine Stanley: This place is so disorganized. 😡😡😡😡 All we got sorry this sorry that. Not enough workers or we were just plain being ignored.

MS Tabu Winslow Morris, MBA: I attended the COE Leadership Summit and Policy Conference at the Hyatt. I commuted from Towson, Maryland to Washington, D.C. every day. I would rush in to the breakfast buffet before our sessions started. Your staff was friendly and seated me right away. Even helped me have seat close to the entrance so that I could exit quickly to get to my session after eating. Your restaurant is clean and you have a good selection of food on the menu. Thank you for the good food and friendly service.

Rafael Alencar: TERRIBLE SERVICE I was writing a bad review about the service. And I realize there are so many complains about the bad service. I wonder why they keep the staff (?) If they want names, here is one: Marino (he's the worst) Stay away from this restaurant.

Igor Ostrovsky: Breakfast buffet is excellent - lots of variety, moderate price (don't miss that $25 off $50 dining coupon they offer with hotel reservation!), comfortable location right in the main lobby of the hotel. Pre-cooked scrambled eggs/bacon are hit or miss - were great one morning, but barely warm on another. Still, there is an omelet station - get it cooked to your specs right in front of you. Coffee is consistently good. Plenty of cold cuts, pastries and fresh fruit. Haven't tried sausages or pancakes - but they looked/smelled good. Bagels, oatmeal, yogurt, cereals - all typical breakfast staples. You won't leave hungry.

William Schlimm: RUDE STAFF They can serve gold in the menu, if the employers are impolite, there's no reason to eat there ever again. Specially in a place where there's a restaurant each corner. Worker called Marino is rude and aggressive from head to toe. I understand some restaurants keeps low budget for hiring unexperienced or bad trained waiters. But this one should work no where but on his manners. Stay away from this restaurant and try the one across the street.

Chanda Rice: The service here is excellent. I had multiple servers checking on me to ensure I had everything I needed. The bread with dinner is soft, warm and delicious. The weekend all you can eat breakfast has a nice assortment of options and juices.

Abq Tours: Limited menu. Ok staff. Good drinks! Avg food. $30 out the door for chicken Caesar salad & iced tea.

Kim Nguyen: Great hotel restaurant! Usually hotel restaurants are just eh. Appreciate the interesting menu with some organic and local ingredients... and even a sustainable catch of the day dish. Enjoyed the fluffy omelet, crispy hash browns and cheese plate for room service.

casmithwv: I was out walking around the museums all day and figured I'd give my feet a rest and give the hotel bar a chance despite the bad reviews. The hotel lobby is pretty and it's a nice space. Right off the bat, something felt off because someone was coming up to the bar because her waiter didn't bother to give her any utensils and the bartender wasn't giving her the time of day. The bartender took a while to acknowledge my presence and didn't seem to speak English very well. I ordered a couple of appetizers and I didn't finish either of them. They both tasted cheap and weren't particularly interesting. I had a couple of beers as well ($8/each). I thought they might do mixed drinks better, so I ordered an old fashioned. It was okay. Not great. They charged me $19 for it though, and that's where they lost me. My total (with tip) was $83. That was not an $83 meal. If I was paying $35 for that meal in Morgantown, WV I'd have no complaints, but for $83 in DC I could've walked across the street and had a better meal.

Aaron WF: Service is friendly. The place is clean and the hamburger I has was very good.

Sam Dey: Not so great. 👎 Average hotel lounge food, OK for people 'stuck' at the hotel.

Leslie Backus: This is a hotel. I am here fir a national choir meeting, and we only used the place for the room. We met at a nearby church , and we had a caterer for our food. That said all the Plaza people have been consistently cheerful and helpful from housekeeping to the concierge to the bartender who broke my twenty.

Danielle Charene Myers (D or Dani): A beautiful hotel right in the heart Of Washington D.C. with tons of amenities and gracious, friendly staff & management.

Sandra Musitano: Rooms were clean. Bathroom and closet space good size. Desk services decent. Breakfast buffet service was NOT friendly and food was warm, not hot. Appreciated the bottle of water left in our room every day

Paul Schulte: Ben and his staff made our brunch extra special!! As we waited, Ben brought us coffee and then started chatting with us. We were both teachers and Ben shared that his parents both worked in education as well. The wait staff was very attentive to our drinks and making sure we had everything we needed. When we asked for the bill, we were told that Ben had taken care of it. We appreciated the wonderful meal and great staff. We will be back!!

Tere Minondo: This place is amazing!!! The food is outstanding, we had fish tacos, mozzarella sticks, steak and artichoke dip... every single thing was good and they had fair prices. The only bad thing is that they close too early! LOL

Mikayla Jeffrey: Ribeye was overcooked and ended up being well done and bland instead of medium. My fiances cod from the fish and chips was overcooked as well. Honestly the best thing about this place was the bread and butter and the fries. Not really worth the price.

Jamahl Milton: Excellent host and wait staff. Attended their brunch...it was so so. It was very Italian, not what I was expecting. Some of the "typical" brunch items are brought to the table on small plates. I thoroghly enjoyed that more than the buffet.

Finnegan Knox: I eat in this spot a lot since I work nearby. I like how their service is always great and they keep the spot well kept constantly. Rates are affordable and they serve large portions.

Vincent Gagnon: While staying at the hotel, we decided to try the restaurant for dinner and were disappointed. Since there was only one waiter working, there was nobody at the front entrance to greet customers so we had to wait over 5-10min before he acknowledged us. The service was also extremely slow and the food was tasteless. I would not recommend going there for dinner.

Elizabeth Mwangi: The hotel restaurant is very beautiful with relaxing colors, very spacious and the meal are great. I enjoyed the American breakfast.The staff are very courteous and friendly however they are slow and maybe need to improve on that.....despite the slow services I reccomend the hotel restaurant if you are not in a hurry.

Flaming Grill & Buffet: what do users think?


Sean Evans: The hibachi is really good, well prepared by their grill chef. Even if you're only eating vegetables, there's nothing like fresh cooked hot veggies over the buffet option. Starting with the hibachi is a game changer I've recently adopted. I really enjoyed the chicken kabob, it was wholesome and filling. Not the best for sushi options, but they definitely have a nice spread of sushi and the options overall are amazing. Price was just under $16 for dinner. Well worth it for what is offered. The men's bathroom didn't have any paper towel and the hand dryer didn't work, but there was plenty of soap! I look forward to revisiting when I'm in the area again. Thank you for an amazing meal.

Sheena “SA125” I: Food was good Did not like the fact that they don't have fountain drinks with free refills😏 Hibachi was delicious Chairs/booths are worn. Someone was always maintaining dropped food sweeping.

Gadiel Garcia: To expensive, no to many choices.... definitely not going back... very disappointed 😞😞honestly I do not recommend this place, there was not a good selection of food, the food was very cold, we told the waitress and her response was *if you want it hotter, I'm going to put it in the microwave*, but I said no thanks for the microwave I prefer to eat at home Something frozen... Another point that I did not like, is that we had not finished eating yet and they were already collecting the plates as if they were running us away... very bad service, very little education as waiters...very very disappointed...

Bruce Taylor: Food was hot and fresh. The seating was prompt and everything was very clean. I would eat here again.

Kim Carpenter: My family & I haven't been here in awhile. They still have limited selections available. The sushi is closed but the hibachi is still running. And, the selections for hibachi are great & it taste great. They started a new Seafood boil bags. That's my next try from them. Prices don't seem so bad. But for right now $49 feeds the whole family with unlimited food. They are giving plastic gloves, bottle drinks, plastic utensils & prepackaged condiments. Next review will be the seafood. Enjoy everyone.

Godden Garden: Food taste like it was our all day. Pineapple was fresh and tasty

Tiffany “NewlyNatural” J: This was our first time here since the pandemic has been reduced. We were excited to see it open. The food was hit or miss. Somethings were good and some things were not. Somethings were hot and some of the things that should have been hot was cold. I was taken back by finding a raw egg on bar...I made one of the male worker aware and he said that happens sometimes and just looked at me. What the hell do I do with a raw egg?🤷 The kids enjoyed themselves and tried some new things and some old faithful things.

Gaby Carr: Really good and variety of food for all likes. Hot and fresh!

Wilhelmina Adesoye: Well let me start by saying this place used to be a really good restaurant however now not so much. First of all they give you plastic folks and a paper cup to eat with. I could understand when COVID was high there's no other restaurants doing this. Pay $17 to eat with plastic folks (thin cheap folks) and paper cups? One question why is know other restaurants doing this. Come on bring back the real utensils andglassware.

Emily English: I know we are in a post-COVID world so I am happy to see the dining establishment that made it thru. However, the quality of the food here has gone considerably downhill. The offerings on the buffet are slim now. Moreover, the place is covered in several layers of grease and dust. Near the hibachi area mouse droppings can be seen while you're standing in line. Even the buffet area just looks grimy. The entire inside needs a GOOD SCRUBBING at minimum. As much as i enjoy the food, I wont be back unless and until they clean up in there.

Hinode Restaurant: what do users think?


Joseph Oh (Joe): I've been looking for an AYCE sushi place ever since I moved here and I still haven't found one that does it for me. (This review is only for the AYCE, no idea what their a la carte is like) I came by myself on a Thursday around 6pm, not too much people, but people started coming in as I was finishing up. For ~$30/person, not bad price-wise. If you bump it up to $35/person, you can order sashimi too, but I wasn't feeling that. In total, I got about 10 pieces of nigiri, 6 rolls, and 2 skewers of chicken. First off, I can understand AYCE establishments putting small amounts of fish with large amounts of rice, that's understandable, but at least make the rice taste good. It was colder than room temperature (you don't want sushi rice to be warm though) and kind of dry tasting. The fish itself was alright. The chicken skewers were honestly really bad. The chicken had very little flavor and it was really hard to chew, almost like it had been overcooked. For the money, you can definitely get a lot of food, but it's not that enjoyable.

Jonathon Koerner: Man I really enjoy this restaurant! It is becoming one of my favorites to take friends to. To start off the waiter is always fast with everything and very friendly. They have all you can eat sushi(price goes up for lunch and dinner). There speciality sushi is always a nice surprise and quality fish. Aside from the sushi I really enjoyed the seafood lo Mein and teriyaki salmon. The Lo mein had a large variety of fresh seafood. I guess my only complaint is that the food is so good it’s hard not to continuously eat there!
Response: Thank you so much for this kind review, Jonathon! It really means a lot to us. We're so glad you've enjoyed your meals with us and sitting by our fish tank residents ;) We hope to see you again soon!

Leslie S: Excellent and affordable sushi! If you’re hungry, all you can eat menu is the way to go. Bento boxes or individual nigiri/maki orders are great for a little less appetite.
Response: Hi Leslie! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this sweet review for us. We're so glad you enjoyed your meal and we hope to see you again! :)

Abhinav Joshi: Hinode is an EXCELLENT RESTO for ALL YOU CAN EAT SUSHI. The only problem I have is that it makes it difficult to try things when you have to pay a surcharge for anything you can't finish. Also, they dont allow you to take home food that is left on the table. They will charge you extra on it
Response: Hi Abhinav! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this kind review for us. We really appreciate it and are so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us! We completely understand the frustration with our policy on leftovers and take home for the All You Can Eat. We do want to note that both policies are standard policies at other All You Can Eat sushi and bottomless brunch restaurants. However, neither policy applies to our a-la-carte menu. We hope to continue to improve your experience with us and hope to see you again soon. :)

HM: I’m sorry but wafer thin, 1.5 inch long,tiny nigiri with mostly rice is a complete ripoff for the all you can eat buffet. Would be ok if they didn’t charge for leftover rice. I want AYCE Fish not rice. I miss Matuba :(

Corwin Crombie: This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to! They have fast, friendly service, the music is pleasant, the food is delicious and priced well. I have been here multiple times and have no negative feed back. Also I love to look at the fish tank.

Somnuk X.: One of the best Sushi Restaurants in Montgomery County, MD. Great prices for all you can eat sushi and items from the kitchen. Food is very tasty and comes in good portions. It’s a great place to take your friends to enjoy a nice lunch or dinner and hangout. The staff are very friendly, attentive, and the food comes out quick. Ignore all those negative comments about this place. I recommend giving this place a try and I give them a five star ⭐️!
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words, Somnuk! We're so appreciative that you took the time to write this and are grateful for customers like you! We hope to keep serving you 5 star meals, whenever we can!

Brian Jerry: I only dined here because my regular AYCE place (Sushi Para) was shut down permanently. But boy was that a mistake. My experience was ruined by this extremely racist elderly Asian lady (whom I assume is either the manager or the owner) kept staring at me the entire time. I felt so uncomfortable. And when I tried to order sushi for my dad, she kept emphasizing that the deluxe dinner option was higher priced, as if I couldn’t afford it because I was black. Then she accused me of sharing. So rude to me yet she was extremely nice to the other white and non-black patrons. The servers were cool but that lady just ruined my entire experience. I can spend my money elsewhere at other establishments that I know will give me equal treatment. Only after I left a tip for the server upon leaving did she exchange phony pleasantries with me but by then, it was already too late. I wish I could give this restaurant zero stars if I could. People of color aren’t particularly welcomed here, especially if you’re of African-American descent. Spend your money elsewhere. This place should be shut down.

Cyriac Edappully: Came here for the lunch buffet. I was not impressed. The only thing I really enjoyed was the beef bulgogi. While the salmon appeared to be fresh at the tuna looked a little iffy. My biggest complaint is that, compared to the other sushi places that I usually go to, this place uses a lot of rice and very little meat. It wasn't very busy so the service was quick. So I will give them that.

Chance Fletcher: Recently moved up to this area and decided to try and find some good sushi. After some time, I found Hinode. The service was relaxed and the food was delicious. Decided to do the a la carte menu. On top of the sushi, there was also plenty of other options ranging from dumplings to noodles. All of it was fantastic. Will certainly be coming back.
Response: Thank you, Chance! We appreciate you writing this sweet review for us!

GrandE Buffet & Grill: what do users think?


Little Mozart: Very good for the price. Many varieties of food including but not limited to seafood salad desserts soul food a taco station soup and an ice cream machine. Some food was room temperature but still good. They even had real wasabi! I highly recommend. I only took a photo of my first plate and forgot the others.

Carmen Milligan: I love this place! My husband isn’t the biggest fan of venturing out to a buffet but whenever I suggest Grand E Buffet, he grabs his car keys. Their food is so fresh & they have a huge variety to choose from. When a dish is close to empty, they keep a close watch and a new batch is placed within moments. The staff are quick to clear your used plates and pay attention when your drinks are low. You’ll never be thirsty. They offer a “take out” service when you fill a to go container and pay per weight. Honestly this is one of our favorite spots any day of the week. My husband is in love with their short ribs and once I tried them, it’s a staple on my plate. The lo mein is so good. Their crab Rangoon are the absolute best. They have the perfect texture and don’t have an overpowering flavor. They have the combination just right. I also like that they offer duck sauce in individual packets. And their fish is tender and tastes like homemade with excellent seasoning and flavor. I recommend basically every option they have. It’s a popular place so don’t be surprised if the tables are full. It’s affordable for the selection and the service. I can’t wait to go back again. Everything tastes amazing and there’s no doubt you’ll find something you like. My husband loves to finish his meal with their soft service ice cream which is always a treat. Definitely a great choice.

Lea A: I read the 4-5 star reviews before coming here and I feel lied to. I should’ve known by the dirty carpet and tables that this was not a good place to eat. Most of the plates and bowls were dirty, I found hair in my salmon, and all of the food was cold and stale as if it had been left out all day. None of the people handling the food wore hair nets or gloves even though many of them had long hair. I wish I had spent my $15 literally anywhere else. Never again!!

TY Slade: We love this place and eat here weekly. They are so friendly and the food is always top notch. Never have had an issue and always clean and safe. You won’t leave hungry!

Carolyn Lilly: Omg! I had not been since before the pandemic. Very clean restaurant, well staffed & so friendly & polite. Such a variety of foods for everyone's pallette. Seafood bar was amazing. Fried chicken was cooked perfectly. Everything was absolutely delicious. There was only one thing that I would change. The barbecue ribs should have been cut in portions. They had the full rack & it was very difficult to cut just enough for an individual portion. I felt like I was sawing a log. I actually gave up & move on to something else. I know that I wasn't the only one that had difficulty, bec I observe a man actually carving off the rib like I would be carving a ham. I was impressed with my Pepsi, because most places this beverage is watered down. Not here, I love a strong robust flavor of Pepsi to end my meal. I wish this restaurant much success, because good food is the way to bring people together. I was with a group of 40 people, we had our own section and we all enjoyed ourselves. Looking forward to visiting again when we're in the area.

Stephen Cella: Worst buffet ever. Manager only cares about money! Don't ask for anything because they won't help you! The food is done their way not the normal way. Take crawfish! They put this sauce on top that is not good and when it asked for some to be steamed the manager so no!! They boil the crabs instead of steaming them so when you break them open there is no meat! There was what was called steak but it was a huge mound of fat!! Horrible place and staff

Paul Valdez: I little more than I'm used to paying, but the food was fresh as it gets. I was there from 745p to 845p, and the food was great. Waitress was very attentive. Note: You must pay before you sit down.

BETTER life: Not clean and food is very bad quality. Not only was the food cold but if you cut open a piece of chicken ( orange chicken, for example), it will have a foul smell. I suppose it’s a decent price but I think it was a hefty price considering that all the food is refrigerated and reheated for a larger profit. All together, very disappointed.

Tom Tran: The cut off time for lunch is clearly stated at 3pm. However twice i have been pressured to pay for dinner while i came to lunch at 2:30pm due to heavy amount of work that i couldn't take lunch break earlier. I have only 30 minutes for lunch so i have to finish my lunch before 3pm anyway. This is practice from the restaurant management is very disturbing and clearly illegal.

Jerome Grossley: The restaurant was very clean, the food was excellent and most of all the employees were very busy putting out new food cleaning and they were very pleasant.
