The Palm - Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Janice L: Things started put rocky initially because we weren't greeted by anyone on the front, we went around looking for an employee. But after that, our waitress was amazing! I forgot her name, but she was a very tall female with blondish brown hair, loved her! It was our first time there and she was amazingly helpful with the menu. The oysters, steak and salad tasted amazing. It was the first steak I've ever had at a high end restaurant that WASN'T chewy!! We ordered the NY style cheesecake and chocolate cake for dessert. The cheese cake was a bit too sweet for me, but my fiance loved the chocolate cake. Really glad we decided to stop by here during our weekend stay in DC.

Cindee Sheeler: First time visiting for a friends birthday..Was absolutely amazing. Reggie and the staff were attentive, knowledgeable and very personable. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Upscale dining with an old world vibe, but not stuffy and pretentious. Reggie and a staff member sang to my friend for her birthday and they were wonderful..

Ryan Arnt: Great food, eclectic atmosphere a Steakhouse that sets the bar high. If you get a chance make sure you eat here.
Response: Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. It means so much when our customers share their experiences. We are glad we were able to meet your expectations! We hope to see you again soon!

rob santiago: It’s a great experience. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing wines, food and service. Kylie was extremely knowledgeable and made great recommendations. She understood exactly how I wanted a monkey shoulder rusty nail and that nailed the night for me. I will be back.

Marie A Smith Robinson: The atmosphere of the restaurant is pleasant. The walls are filled with cartoon sketches of notable people. I would not recommend the seafood dishes, we had the calamari and lobster bisque, they were subpar. We sent back the calamari and the lobster bisque was barely warm. Raisin bread was phonmenal. The steak was excellent mashed potato and asparagus accompanied it well.

Jessica Kelley: Requested a high top, and mentioned a true dairy allergy.. aka anaphylactic shocked and they didn’t Acknowledge either.. even though I made a reservation & made sure to mention this. Also was told to bad we are busy for my high top. My drinks took 20 minutes to get as well! Not a good place for date night unless you want disappointment

Nicole Deloney: The chicken parmeson is probably the best I've ever had. My friend had the steak medallions and they were a little spicey but good to me because I love spicey food. Service was good and prompt.

André Hentz: The service, food, and ambiance is fantastic. We recently celebrated our anniversary at The Palm, and will dine there again for sure.

Andre Monette: Zero stars, very disappointed with my experience here. Called at 8:30 to get a reservation and arrived at 8:45 to be told they close at 9:00 and they could not seat 4 people because they are closing. Really not what I would expect out of a place that bills itself as a go to steak house. Food is mediocre at best, will not return. Bummer because I used to enjoy it pre-Covid. This is the worst review I have ever given.

Gentle John: Good food as you would expect. Our waiter seemed a bit distracted
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Carmine's Italian Restaurant - Washington D.C.: what do users think?


feranda smith: The portion size of this place is HUGE! Good thing is they serve lunch sizes all day for certain items. Lasagna wasn’t one of those so this was definitely dinner and lunch for the next day. Food wasn’t bad, however, you could taste that everything basically comes from a can. Taste a lot like chef boyardee. Drinks were a bit too sweet but not terrible. The highlight was their garlic bread! Now that was amazing!!!! I could just sit, eat that, and be extremely satisfied

Albert Jonathan: Looking for an Italian food in the downtown area, and found this decent Italian restaurant. Overall, we had a great dining experience. The server was very friendly and professional, she started by explaining a few things about the restaurant and told us that the food is supposed to be shared by 2-3 people per portion. Foods taste great and the price is reasonable.

Mark Michael Blue: Great food, however for less than 3 or 4 people not well suited. The only regular tables are available for a menu that only serves family-sizes. So if you go there alone as I did, you either have tons of leftovers or ruin every diet you’re on - also, whatever you order apart from drinks comes multiplied by 4 basically and costs accordingly. So ordering a simple garlic bread sets you back 15 USD and you get like 9 pieces. No issue if you sit at the bar to get human-sized portions, however it tainted the experience a little. Nonetheless, the food was gorgeous and the staff great!

Shad Kearns: Excellent Italian restaurant! We had a great dining experience. The server was very friendly and professional, she started by explaining a few things about the restaurant and told us that the food is supposed to be shared by 2-3 people per portion. Foods taste great and the price is reasonable.

Luke Meyers: Restaurant had a good feel to it. Located in heart of DC. Food was very good and the size of portions family style. Family of 4 and we just did sides, glad we did, plenty for the empty stomachs after walking the Mall and plenty to bring back to the hotel. Place was packed and full of people. Meatballs and eggplant made the family happy. For post dining though not on the menu, a few glasses of limoncello, only the Italian might ask. Food was priced for area.

Mike Olson: First time dining and didn’t realize it’s family style but luckily I’m old enough to sit at the bar where smaller portions are offered. Ordered the Rigatoni with Broccoli and Sausage with a Red Sauce. It was a busy Saturday night and the food took longer to arrive than I’d have liked but once it did I was instantly impressed and very satisfied with the meal. Also worth mentioning that the service at the bar was exceptional and truly professional.

Kim Nguyen: Carmine’s offers family style dishes. By family style, I mean big portions. We ordered a shrimp scampi with linguine for 2 of us. We couldn’t finish half of the portion. It was huge as you can see in the photo (the knife for size preference). Carmine’s is perfect for a family of 4 or more because you can get the most for the value. Reservation is recommended.

Karoline Melo: The place is nice for a family gathering. The dishes are HUGE, really HUGE, it easily serves 5 people. Just a tip: they serve half portion of the cannoli, but you have to ask because it’s not written in the menu. The food is tasty, the chicken parmigiana is one of the best I had. The cannoli was good too!

Kali “KK” Harris: Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! We went for a bday dinner and there was not one dissatisfied person at the table. Before I rave on the food, I must pause and give a huge shot out to our waiter, Morgan. This was customer service at its finest beginning with the hostess staff upon entrance. His service deserves a 22 percent tip so if you get him don't take him for granted, especially now and days were excellent service is hit or miss. Now as far as the food goes, you can look at the pics all day long, yet your eyes will still light up the moment they place those huge portions on your table. (Shot out to those guys as well carrying two arm length plates at a time 😉.) Drinks were delicious and not skimpy at all. No watered down drinks here. Aside from the big portions, everything tasted to perfection! I really could go on and on but I will end by suggesting you try it on your own. Special occasions should definitely be celebrated here 💯.

Joyce Griffin: So much food. Serve many portions. The courses were a great variety, salads, muscles, shrimp, fish, pasta, lasagne, fresh fruit, dessert, beverage. All you could eat. Went as a group to celebrate graduation. Servers were awesome, attentive and made sure we had extra portions if we wanted. Would highly recommend even though price per person was $70. It was worth it.

Old Ebbitt Grill: what do users think?


Natalia Mednikov: There are straightforward American-style food. This restaurant is best known for its huge old-school oyster bar—think lots of dark wood, brass fixtures, and big mirrors. That oysters was fantastic and fresh. We’ve enjoyed also cheese sampler, fried calamari and baked oysters. Everything they do is absolutely delicious. The service was very fast and friendly. We were happy to choose this great restaurant to end our busy day in Washington, D.C.

Tiberiu Hrihorciuc: Loved the experience! Tasted a dozen oysters and each one was more delicious than the other. Wine is very fairly priced. Saw it more expensive in some New York wine discount stores. The fish was such a huge portion when they split it in two plates we told them that we did not order 2 plates but to our surprise that was a full plate. If you get a chance to go to happy hours for oysters don't hesitate!
Response: Thank you, Tiberiu!

Aditya Karandikar: Had an awesome time here as a late night/ early next day stop. The food was quite nice and fairly refined, especially at such a late hour! The atmosphere was popping as well which made it more enjoyable. Service was very friendly and they had great oysters. Fresh complimentary bread never hurts either…

Sam M: This place is one of the more famous restaurants in DC. I visited this spot during brunch and it was packed. I would definitely recommend making a reservation for both weekend dinner and brunch services. I started with New England clam chowder and some salad dish. For entrees, I got eggs benedict and catfish. All the dishes I ordered were pretty good. But, I definitely enjoyed their desserts more even though I was pretty full before it. Their key lime pie and salted caramel bread pudding were both amazing! Staffs were very accommodating and attentive during the whole service. I’m planning to visit this restaurant and will get some oysters and burgers next time. I heard they are pretty good. I definitely recommend this place to celebrate any special occasions.

Suzi Figueroa: Wow, wow and wow! A friend recommended this establishment to me when I asked for dining recommendations for my upcoming DC trip. I am so glad I listened. The warm and inviting ambiance matched the service. And the food? Oh my goodness. Delicious. My SO ordered meatloaf. Who knew meatloaf could take on a such an extraordinary presentation.
Response: Suzi, Thank you for visiting Old Ebbitt Grill and leaving a great review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience and we hope to have you back again the next time you're in town.

Mary H: What a DC institution. I've been here numerous times taking "out of town" guests but always failed to write a review... This place is busy and crowded... so make a reservation. Service is attentive and friendly. Try to get a seat in the atrium, much nicer and brighter. *turkey club-generous portions of turkey. It was good and the fries were nice and hot. *salad greens- tasty, I wanted something light. *calamari-nice and crispy. They have a good selection on their menu, we just weren't that hungry. It's kinda the place to go when you visit DC.
Response: Thank you, Mary!

Amy Workman: If you're worried that this a nice place turned tourist trap that cuts corners, worry not. We had a fantastic experience and the food was superb. Our server was in his 9th year here and I wished he could've just sat and talked with us all night. They were wonderfully accommodating and welcoming of our kids, which you definitely can't say about a lot of places. Some places know that if the kids are happy the parents are more than happy to get another round and more dishes. And then when we're sans-kids someday, we'll definitely be back to sit at one of the beautiful bars. We had the walrus raw bar which was perfect for us never having had raw oysters. They did a little of each kind they had that night and I had no idea oysters could taste so different. We had the mussels, kids mac and cheese, and sausage pasta dish. The pasta was house made and the sauce creamy and spicy. So good. After dinner we walked it off around the White House. I've spent much more at restaurants and not gotten half as much food or nearly as good as service, so even though it was our most expensive meal in DC it was also our best value. Definitely a must-go in DC.

Elaine Viegas: AMAZING! There is no other word to describe it. Since we arrived until we paid the service was perfect. I couldn’t be more happy for their food, service and kindness on my birthdays lunch. We didn’t mention that it was my birthday but they saw on my profile and as soon as I arrived they asked to confirm and no only brought my desert with a candle and a cute chocolate happy birthday place on the top. Our server was amazing, she arrived singing happy birthday, was very classy and really surprised me. Thank you for the excellence in your service. BTW the food it’s top quality, my oysters and shrimps were fresh abs really tasteful.

Jelena M: Great food, great price, great service! The waiter we had was so nice, knowledgeable, and friendly! The calamari was very good, but watch out for the spicy peppers in it . My salad was yummy! I usually never order salads, but I am glad I did as the dressing was citrusy and refreshing! They also give warm bread and butter while you wait 😍
Response: Jelena, Thank you for stopping by Old Ebbitt Grill and leaving a great review! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your experience and look forward to having you back again soon!

Matthew Hanna: This was a pretty cool place to eat. It is so old but very nice inside. Lots of preserved animals I didn't expect to see like sea turtles, walrus and more. The food was great and I really liked the drinks. You can still visit and get a really good burger and fries for like $18 or you can go all out and pay $100+ for a super delicious entree. Either way the alcohol is good.

Alero Restaurant: what do users think?


A L: Came for a late night drink and wasn't denied. Not only that, felt at home and the service was fair. Great, but when I say fair, I was treated like a patron and not a dollar. Thanks to Pablo for serving a great drink and I told him to give me what he thought was the best margarita in the house... had the nerve to serve me freaking Topaz!!! But it was AWESOME! THANKS FOR A GREAT EXPERIENCE 🙂

Dena Jackson: The food came out very quickly, but once the restaurant got busier we saw our server less and less. It took about 30mins to get someone to bring our check to the table. The food was decent at best and the drinks we okay. Overall It's a good inexpensive place for a quick happy hour.

Joshua Dyer: Dope spot to have some frozen margaritas and tasty Mexican food. Right on the popular U street in DC, where you can find the next spot after eating. The prices are pretty good, you won’t feel like you broke the bank. The staff and bartenders were friendly and attentive.

Destinee Douglas: The place is really welcoming and festive ! We liked the lay out and the restaurant is extremely big! Our food came out in an ok time but it wasn’t that hot or sizzling how a skillet is supposed to . & I feel they’re a bit over priced for the amount of food they give . Our waiter wasn’t the best. He often forget to bring back a few things we wanted . But the food was ok. I would still recommend. I just think we need to go back and try again.

Destiny Bell: This is the most driest, nastiest food I’ve ever had. No type of seasoning the potatoes were obviously old. They reheated it and it’s 🤮. Only good thing is the alcoholic drinks. Never again

Christian Strickland: came from NY on a weekend lil vacation. been here twice already. AWESOME!!! Great drinks taste great reasonable priced and do the job. Every staff member is so attentive provides A1 service. This is deff my go to spot while im in DC.

Jennifer Lara: Came to Alero on U St. to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. It was all around a great evening. First, the atmosphere and vibe is vibrant and fun. Also, the service was fantastic. Our server, Alvero, was friendly and attentive. Our food came quickly. Finally, the food was good and margaritas were tasty as well. Definitely will go back.

Pursuit Color: Ambience was great, and I loved the Frieda Kahlo art on the wall. The drinks were amazing, but when it came down to the food, a rating of 6/10 will do. The ceviche was was too tart that it was rendered inedible. I love ceviche and was so disappointed that this fell short of expectation. I am willing to go back and give it one more try.

Roger Brittingham: So this was a plan B for us. We were supposed to eat at Tico D.C. Mexican Restaurant. Ambience was festive, food was fresh and very hot. Our waiter was attentive. Other patrons around us were very loud and obnoxious. Maybe not for kids, there's a chance that you might sit at our table top which had a painting of a topless maiden bearing her nipples. Over all, price was $$.

Romeo Williams: Nice spot, nice vibes.. gave it two stars because the service was not great and it was complaints about our food.. btw, I went on taco Tuesday but it wasn’t very busy.. my food was good!! My homegirl didn’t like her tacos (chicken tacos, soft shell), she said they were disgusting.. my other homegirl got tacos (shrimp tacos, hard shell) and she said they were great.. my homeboy said his salmon was fire but it was 4 mins over cooked (he’s a chef).

Sandeep Wilkhu: Excellent experienceWe sat in the bar because we did not have reservations. But our waitress Addison was so very excellent she made it an excellent experience. I would go back to the bar seating.

Charli Knows How To Eat: A very good friend of mine treated me to this very fancy dining experience. It was so amazing. I would recommend this restaurant for special events or celebrations. It is quite expensive however the service is great and the food is even better. I convinced my date that I’d like my own steak however I did not know they give you such large portions which is a first to see in a upscale restaurant like this. Nonetheless it was so tender and evenly cooked I ate every single piece !

raymond burgos: The service and hospitality are on par with the best in the world with amiable and capable staff. The presentation and food are excellent. The decor is well-suited to a high-end establishment and will make you break into a smile as soon as you walk in. The portions are good, not more significant portions - this is a tasting restaurant. Quality over quantity!

Kyana Shelton: Ambiance was stunning. Very classy and modern I love the simplicity of the place. Valet is cash only! Bread for the table was delicious. I ordered the shrimp scampi and my boyfriend ordered the chicken parmesan both a 10/10. My shrimp scampi was a small portion but besides that I had no complaints and actually left feeling pretty full. Can't remember the name of the wine I had but I believe our waiter said it had a hint of oyster. Overall, amazing experience with a sophisticated look I will be back!

Des KF: My boyfriend and I had reservations for this restaurant for my birthday. When we arrived we walked in and was greeted by the hostess and she sat us. The tables were super close to one another which was the only downfall. Tim was our waiter and he was so nice and attentive. We started with drinks and I got the Spritz and Giggles, it was weak but it was tasty. For my entrée I got the king crab with squid ink pasta and that was good. My boyfriend got the shrimp scampi pasta and he really enjoyed it. Tim gave us a cheesecake because we waited for a while to get drinks and that was so nice and it was so tasty. I also slid in that it was my birthday and he gave me a small, cute dessert to sing happy birthday. I really enjoyed my time, the ambiance was great and so was the food and service.

Lin Dinh: dim, upbeat ambiance with upscale cocktails— perfect spot for a bourgeois night out. plates were tapas size but the perfect portions. the mushroom pizza was by far the best pizza I’ve ever had. the short ribs were also superb. love it here!

MADDART: It was my first time dining here. I ordered a New York strip which was about 16 ounces.(a lot bigger than I expected from an upscale restaurant. It was cooked perfectly and had lots of flavor. The server was a bit forgetful about a couple requests I had made for pepper and silverware. I had to ask several times. Other than that the setting was great and I enjoyed my time there.

H. Ibdah: Amazing service. Amazing food. Amazing atmosphere. We went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The waiter was theatrically impressive. The food was outstanding. We tried many dishes, I only took a photo of the main courses. I highly recommend the octopus for a starter. For the main we had the lobster pasta, meatballs, steak and side dishes. Great for romantic dinners and for outing with friends.

john Dickerson: Reservation required, proof of covid vaccination with ID valet available $20. Service was outstanding John was our waiter, and he did a great job everything was swift and on time. The food was delicious, for appetizers we Truffled Garlic Bread Parmigiano-reggiano, 1/2 dozen half Shell oyster, truffle and parmesan cheese pizza, Big Eye Tuna Bruschetta Basil Aioli garlic toast, the main was Lobster Fra DiavolobCalabrian chili & tomato and Short Rib Bolognese Pappardelle, Rosemary. For dessert we had Tiramisu Whipped mascarpone & coffee.

Imani: The decor was nice. We liked our dishes but were not a fan of how soft the meatballs were. The plates were also small. We started off with a spritz for our drinks but sent it back because it was very sweet. We ordered a Paloma instead which was very delicious. The reasons for the star decrease was the hostess. We asked if we could move our table and she tried to explain the seating arrangements but made a condescending remark by saying “does that make sense” with a slight attitude which was very noticeable by the both of us.

Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse: what do users think?


Vy H.: LOVE THIS PLACE!! My work company had our holiday lunch gathering here recently! The restaurant has a nice and fancy vibe, and surprisingly was packed for a weekday lunch. Their salad bar is awesome—with a huge selection of choices. Their meats (that come around your table) is so delicious and well flavored. In addition, staff is very friendly and attentive. I was a little disappointed that they didn’t have the chocolate cake as a dessert option for our meal, but the cheesecake with strawberry sauce was really good!

Kevin Amaya: Went here for a company brunch and was blown away! If excellent service, high quality food and drinks in a comfortable and relaxing setting then this place should be in your top places to visit. You won't be disappointed with the selection of different foods to choose from.

Joseph Middleton: Went for my first time ever at Fogo with my siblings to celebrate the end of a trip together. This dinner was one of the highlights of our vacation. Our waiter as well as the entire waitstaff and all of the gaucho chefs were wonderful, knowledgeable, and professional and made the experience all that much more enjoyable. The selection of meats rotated through regularly and the market table had a great selection of fruit, salads, and other delicious food. The side dishes we were brought were delicious. We were celebrating my sister's graduation and the staff went above and beyond to make it special. I cannot speak highly enough of this dinner. It's truly an excellent experience and was a memorable one for my siblings and I.

JennyLovesGogi 제럽고 (제니럽스고기): Especially, the lamb was fantastic.They provide fresh salad, salmon, soup, and fruits at the self corner.And they gave us a fantastic cheesecake for our birthday! 💯💯Thank you for nice food and service!

Morgan: Fantastic service. The employees here really work well as a team. The food is always great. I took my boyfriend here when we first started dating and he loved it. Took him again along with my grandparents, who were in town visiting… I didn’t tell our server, but we were also celebrating my grandma being cancer-free. Our server went out of his way to give my grandma a free dessert that said “Welcome to DC” (see picture)… That was really nice. Thanks for many great experiences.

Steffon Greatness: Danie Magalhes & Staff are super accommodating. They understand customer service. Daniel kept a smile on his face as if he wanted to be at work. The Service, QUICK, Efficient, & Friendly. It’s as if they want you to ask question. 🤣 The Food, Fresh, Hot, Tasty❗️I’ve been to hole in the wall Brazilian spots and I’ve been to Texas de Brazil… the food tastes better thank all of those I’ve experienced. Pro Tip, They get busy quick, they have a full dining area. Tables fit 2, 4 & round tables that must fit about 8. They fill up pretty quick. (And this was a Thursday) Try the bottom steak & lamb. It’s the best. I wasn’t a fan of the beer marinated chicken however it wasn’t bad. Last thing get the soda in the picture it’s AMAZING. I want a case of them lol. *** Please mark this helpful if it helped you***

Naturally E: The food and service was top notch! I really enjoyed all of the selections & the quality of the meat. The market table was my favorite! Soooo many options to choose from. The drinks were fantastic! Surprisingly, they have Happy Hour all day! Our server, Ryan, was ahhhmazing! He was super cool! Really enjoyed our meal.

John Kurton: Great place for meat lovers. Great quality meats and good size cuts just kept on coming. The salad bar was great too. Some how even managed to find room for dessert.
Response: So happy to hear this, John! Thank you very much for the support - we can't wait to serve you again.

Jesse Campo: I don't know why I'd never been here before, but I'll certainly be back. Got super lucky with a reservation being available last minute. I'd recommend getting a reservation if you're coming for dinner, especially on a weekend. We still ended up waiting about 15 mins for our table, but it was well worth it. The food is amazing, and it's pretty much all you can eat high quality meats and salad bar (with delicious sides)! I didn't expect there to be so many different meats. I was seriously impressed with it all. It came to about $80 per person after tip - not cheap, but definitely worth it. If you haven't been here and you're looking for an awesome meal, get a reservation and go! Make sure you're hungry and don't waste *too* much time at the salad bar - ha.

Autumn Bishop: We went for the first time for my birthday, everything was amazing. Our server Denzel was overall a 10/10 super attentive even though it was crazy busy he made sure our needs were met and even offered to have specific meats brought to us if we hadn’t tried them yet. He also had great recommendations and accommodations. The food was all fantastic. We will be definitely coming back the next time we are in DC !!

Ben's Next Door: what do users think?


E Gilbert: My best friend came into town and we want to do something fun so we went to Ben Next Door we had a ball. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious 😋. The music selection was on point to match the unlimited mimosas that came in 3 types cranberry, pineapple, or orange juice. I will definitely be visiting again soon. The only thing I did not like were the bathrooms they were not being kept up at all I went to the two located towards the back and the back of the toilet was missing from one hopefully this will be fixed. But there was toilet paper, running water, and soap so I was good. I definitely recommend checking out the brunch here.

Philip Wilson: This spot has been a neighborhood staple for more than a decade.. and the only thing consistent - is their inconsistency. I came back today after taking a 5/6 month break and I'm underwhelmed. The new decor is blue and black, which almost never does well in a space that's designed to be a restaurant. Blue is an appetite killer. And with the new pallette, they've done away with the amazing local art that used to adorn the walls. The new calamari blend came out burnt and chewy.. I couldn't eat it. The new chicken tender coating is great. I wasn't excited about paying 20 for a cocktail, but that seems to be the price point for their top shelf spirit. Looks like I'll be on another 6 month hiatus.

Aaron Wilson, Jr.: Brought the family here during our trip to D.C. and glad we came! I was wary when the Uber pulled up and I felt the club vibes pulsating out of the front door...we had the progeny with us. (Side note...I would have hated to try to find parking. Uber or walk if you can.) Hostess took us through the front, by the bar, past the open area of seats and up the stairs to a loft area that was away from the bar and had another family sitting there as well. Our waitress came and apologized for the wait in getting to us (it wasn't THAT long but the gesture was appreciated). She was friendly and very responsive, even jovial with the kids. Our food came correctly and without delay...and maaaaan was it good! Collectively, we had the chicken and waffles, grits, quesadilla and cheese fries. There's always a concern when having chicken and waffles because chicken breast can be dry depending on who cooks them...Ben hooked it up. Benny was moist. Benny was juicy. Benny was what we call...delectable. Topped it all off with the cheesecake and the bread pudding....zero complaints all around. Definitely returning when we come back to DC.

Makeda Fox: The food was sooo good !! I got the shrimp and grits, along with the bread pudding for dessert. Very flavorful, the vibe was amazing. Our waiter Kash was very entertaining, attentive and funny. BEST waiter EVER. 10/10 I recommend!!

JENNii: Good spot for a casual Sunday brunch with friends. It’s right next to the famous ben’s chili bowl on U street. They food and service was good as well. I would definitely come back to this restaurant.

Toshia Brown: Very nice vibe, excellent food, no mambo sauce or cornbread muffins but the kale was so scrumptious and tender; seasoned to perfection

Bryanna Edwards: Ronnie is my boy! I met him my first time and fell in love. But then came when he was off and I regret it. But anyway the food is amazing and I love Ronnie's service! He is the best! This is my go to for my "mom date" every Friday early happy hour. Will keep coming back!!!

Gaelle Claude: The service may be a bit slow but their food is pretty good. I tried their burger and it was amazing! The picture may seem basic but it was bomb! I’ve been there on occasions where I ordered the chicken and waffle, which I would rate 7/10 because the chicken is a bit salty. I loved the cocktail I ordered I believe it’s called a chi-chi colada.. amazing! 10/10. The fish and grits is pretty good, I would rate it 8/10. My friend says the salmon meal was decent but she didn’t enjoy the sugar on her sweet potato fries. Due to slow service over all experience is 7/10

Josephs Boy: I really enjoyed this place & the owner was really nice. I enjoyed the history of the restaurant that was shared. I sat outside it was live but I enjoyed it. The Jerk Pasta was delicious and the mambo wings were the perfect appetizer (u can always tell when people take pride in what they serve). I will definitely be back my next trip to DC.

ajia brown: Ate brunch here and the food and atmosphere was perfect. Black owned restaurant filled with lots of people the line is always LONG

Rodney Ibrahim: We were from out of town and decided to catch a hockey game. Unfortunately it didn't occur to us that finding a place to eat before the game would be so hard. We walked into Clydes and it was mobbed. At least an hour wait and we had 2 young children. However the manager on duty saw our struggle and managed to seat us right away. Amazing customer service and I'd give 5 stars just for that! Food was delicious and service was top notch. Go here.

L. H.: great!!! loved it here, our server was so sweet!! great menu for selection and everything was so fresh, highly recommend the oysters rockefeller!! the patty melt is just amazing, it’s like fancy comfort food - perfect for a cold day. fish tacos are also great, portion sizing is on the smaller side, but still fantastic.
Response: Thank you so much!

Ebone Cruz (The Entrepreneur Plug): Where do I start. I swear this place reminded me of Cheers! Literally down to earth bar tender, wish I could remember her name. I ordered the fish tacos and they were seasoned to perfection. The beans and rice weren't the best so I'd suggest fries as your side but you be the judge. Inexpensive stop for a quick lunch the bar and conveniently located from several hotels in the area. Stop by check it out and if you're not a fish person try the chicken combo 1 I think it is.
Response: Thank you so much, Ebone!

Paris H: My friends and I had an okay experience. Our waiter was cool. Our food was good. My only complaint would be the host. Apparently she gave my friends a hard time about the reservation and had a nasty attitude with them. As a waitress myself, hosts are the first people guests communicate with. If their first encounter is greeted with rudeness, that bitterness follows the remainder of their time spent at your establishment.
Response: Thank you for your feedback and review, Paris. We hope to see you again soon!

Sasha Lee: Not bad for a first time visit. I like the overall setup of the place. The food was alright. I had a jumbo shrimp cocktail which was really good for my appetizer then a Reuben sandwich with fries for the entrée. The sandwich was a little dry but it was decent.

Saad Noaman: Great food and amazing service. I had one of my best meals in Washington DC. Atmosphere was amazing. Highly recommend the Nachos, Burger, chicken wings and crab dip.
Response: Thank you so much, Saad!

Monica Fair: 2 stars. Staff seemed to be running away, from the young lady who tried to seat me in the dirtiest seats in the place. The server also ran off, when we asked him for ketchup. Actually Ran.. the food was not a full course meal. Sausage in the Rigatoni was salty. Meal came with no sides or bread. Double crab cake came with tatter tots no veggies. Chef should be ashamed of himself for letting this come out of his kitchen. For the price at this restaurant the seats should not look like this. I do recommend the nachos we're amazing the rest. S.M.H...

Mike Loewenthal: Always a wonderful meal and great service. Excellent late night menu with entrees available instead of typical deep fried bar food.

Emily Smith: Wonderful experience here! We had a large party and there were very accommodating. The no kick kentucky mule was delicious and the steak was phenomenal. Awesome server and great atmosphere. Check it out!

Safiya Parker: Had a reservation Thursday at 3p before an event at the arena. The service was quick since we got there before most of the crowd. The food was okay and got the job done.

Firefly: what do users think?


Sadhana G: Went to this beautiful place for brunch on a Sunday. The food was a whole new level of excitement! Presentation and quality of the food and the good ambience set the right tone for the weekend. But the only setback was the price. We had an Egg frittata, chicken and waffles and Egg Benedict-crab ( the chef special) and it cost us 70$. A great place to grab finger food in a cute setting !

Garner Marshall: Excellent breakfast spot. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Parking is pretty scarce around the area. Staff is excellent. Good is delicious. Music is diverse. Location is convenient. This is going to be one of my new favorite breakfast spots.

Steven Power: Wonderful location and the food is pretty good. The prices are very high. Brunch for two with no drinks besides one cup of black coffee was $50 for one order of French Toast, one Avocado Toast, and a side of fruit. The service was good overall, but one small thing annoyed me somewhat. We were there for Saturday brunch so I ordered a cup of black coffee right when the waitress first came over. The coffee, which they charged $5 for, finally came a minute before our food. I drank it quickly, thinking that for $5 for a tiny cup, a refill would be in order. No such luck. I don't know if asking for a refill would have taken another 20 minutes and cost another $5, but at that point in the meal, I didn't bother. Overall, a solid 5-stars. The location and ambiance outside are really great.

Mariia Sarlayan: Wonderful food, amazing service, beautiful interior, pleasant vibe. A bit pricey for brunch but worth it. I wish more tables outside had umbrellas for shades but even then the experience was memorable.
Response: Mariia, We are definitely wowwed by your amazing review and grateful for your comments. I hope we'll see you again soon, for another memorable experience! Please be safe and well until then. Sincerely, Anastasiia Firefly General Manager

Kim S: The food, service, and ambiance were excellent! My only disappointment was that they weren't open for dinner Sundays because we were looking forward to going back.

Linden Yee: Solid brunch, overall recommend. The eggs on the benedict were pretty undercooked but the flavors were good, and the chicken and waffles were really well seasoned. Service was pretty slow, and the staff seemed to be up against a lot. While the waiter was great, they appeared to be the only one working the entire restaurant.

Khadija Khan: The restaurant has changed a lot since the last time I was here! Really friendly staff and nice ambiance! My favorite was the peanut butter and jelly French toast with the jalapeño honey! It’s an Interesting combo but I really liked it. Our server recommended a really yummy mocktail! The food was a little pricey so I’m not sure if I’ll be visiting again any time soon, but the dishes were innovative and delicious.
Response: Khadija, Thank you for the great review and the photos you shared from your recent visit at Firefly. Love to hear the our food and service left a great impression. I do hope you'll come abck again soon. Warmest Regards, Anastasiia, General Manager, Firefly

idcwhatcoloritis: This had to be an off night cause the place was interesting. The old arcade games were cool and our waitress did her best with a terrible situation. Two of our three meals were barely warm at best and cold at worst. The other was basically frozen salmon from a grocery store on what looked like Couscous but was actually rice some how. They nuked our food in the microwave and brought it back out. The vegan burger both smelled and tasted like fish. Completely inedible. All in all, the food was terrible all around. The only plus to this experience was the owner who took both meals off our bill and bought us a round of shots to make up for it after there POS system went down. We saw at least 10 plates go back to the kitchen while we were there. I don’t think this is normal cause most of the people there seemed like regulars and were super confused by there food. I think it was an off night but I don’t think any of my group will be returning.
Response: Greetings, Thank you for your feedback I just would like to double check, is this review for Firefly Restaurant located at 1310 New Hampshire Ave NW Washington DC. We don’t have old arcade games at our restaurant. Thank you Anastasiia Hehelska Restaurant GM

Lisa Mayberry: Cute little place for brunch out of the way in a hotel down New Hampshire Street. Outside patio seating is nice for a cool day with the umbrella up.
Response: Lisa, Thank you for your recent visit to Firefly and the excellent review. We could not agree more, the Terrace is a great place to relax, people watch and enjoy one (or two) of our amazing cocktails. Please come back soon! Sincerely, Anastasiia Firefly General Manager

S P: Everything about this restaurant Amazing and I mean everything! I went once and I can't stop going back I tell everyone to go best chicken and waffles I have ever had! Drink and beautiful and delicious

Sequoia DC: what do users think?


Ashley Emtcheu: The food is delicious, the place is decorated beautiful with Christmas decorations besides its classy and upscale look. Wasn't able to try a drink I was recommended to try by the server but overall great experience. Place is located in a great location which is great if your wanting to get great photos with friends/family. Parking Garage is 2 minutes away in walking distance to this restaurant which is very convenient. 👍🏾

Zuleirys Santana Rodriguez: Amazing customer service! The outdoor dining is just soo extremely gorgeous, spacious and clean in every way. You have a lovely view of the water, the Sweden Embassy, and just the river! The food was just next level, specially the octopus that was cooked to perfection and I will certainly have it again when I come back to bring my boyfriend.

IamJoedie S: This was my first time and the experience was awesome. We came for a birthday dinner. A party of 12 arriving at 5 PM on a Sunday. We had two servers they were on top of everything. There was never a moment a glass was empty. Food service was quick hot and absolutely delicious. I had the steak was absolutely surprise when the potato came out with macaroni and cheese…must order if, no when you come. If you’re looking for a sexy restaurant to have a brunch, lunch and or dinner this is definitely the spot it overlooks the water great date spot. I will definitely come back again. Next time for the brunch. I hear that it is phenomenal. Come. Eat. Drink. Enjoy!

jen w: I gave this 3 stars because of a couple reasons first we had a reservation Saturday at 1:30 pm for their tapas brunch. They were super slow getting our food to us at the beginning. We ordered two rounds of food before the waitress came back and told us it was last call. We were barely there an hour. There is a 2 hour limit, I feel that if they have reservations till a certain hour they should allow the two hour minimum for people. It’s 64.95 per person they aren’t doing a favor for anyone. Next we chose to sit inside and it was obnoxiously loud. There was a group of people that were talking and screaming to each other, while I’m glad they were having a good time management should have asked them to simmer down because all the rest of us could to was watch them because u couldn’t talk for the noise. Having said all that, the food was very good. We opted for Bellinis and Mimosas. They were very good. The waiters walked around with carafes of Champagne and refilled you. My glass never got empty. I would go back here but make an earlier reservation and in cooler weather where I could it on the patio so I don’t have to deal with the noise.

Renee McCracken: Mother's Day Brunch at Sequoia has now become our new tradition. The food was excellently prepared and the service was outstanding. The entertainment was a great addition to our experience. I did have one hiccup during our time there but it was promptly handled and it was like it never happened. I love Sequoia and will definitely recommend and return.

Vy H.: Came here recently Saturday night for a private holiday event—had a great time! The restaurant is huge and beautifully decorated to fit the Christmas/Holiday theme. We had open bar—they have a huge selection of liquor! Food was decent—the hors d'oeuvres were delicious, the main dishes were just okay. Staff are all pretty friendly. There’s a coat check room downstairs when you enter, and an elevator if you don’t want to walk up all the stairs.

John Varkey: We came for an anniversary dinner. The hostesses were a bit surly and disinterested but our waiter was great. The views are fabulous. My wife had the crab cakes and I had the lobster scampi. They were both fabulous but according to my wife the lobster had the edge. We went for a nice stroll along the water and around Georgetown after dinner. A very nice evening was had.

Kat B: Loved this place so much. My partner and I came here for our anniversary, not only was the view beautiful but the energy/service of the staff was amazing . The food was spectacular, definitely get the burrata if they have it ! We were pretty full but still made room for dessert and an espresso which was also delicious . Definitely recommend for a date night/ celebration . Prices were in line with the portions/ambiance .

Crystal Sings: Beautiful simply Beautiful 💜My daughter and I brought my mom to last Saturday’s brunch for her 80th birthday and we really enjoyed the service, food, and ambiance of the restaurant. George, our waiter was awesome and made our experience so memorable! Thank you George!

elizabeth rose: Visiting from florida and this restaurant was highly recommended by locals and im delighted i took their advice! The atmosphere was great, very inviting and scenic, indoor and outdoor seating offered with a nice view of the river. food was really good and exceeded expectations and the server Dominique went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our experience :)

Dirty Habit: what do users think?


Olivia M. Wilson: Went to Dirty Habit for brunch and it was good! The fruit was really fresh and the potatoes were crisp. However, the service was decent and they only have bar seats available. Maybe that’s because we arrived an hour before they closed for the afternoon. Either way, the food made up for it. I would definitely like to try their dinner menu.
Response: Hi Olivia — Thank you so much for the kind words and for the feedback! We take all feedback seriously, so we’ll be sure to discuss ways to make our service more efficient. We're always trying to improve, so if there's anything else you think of, please let us know. Thanks, and we hope to welcome you back soon!

Austin Graff: Located in Penn Quarter close to the Chinatown Metro Station, Dirty Habit makes for a great date night or group dinner. It's a spacious restaurant with several beautifully-decorated dining rooms, bars and a heated outdoor patio. Here's my wife and my experience going on a February Saturday evening: 1) Food: The food menu is organized first courses, mains and sides. My wife and I love little courses so we each ordered our own French onion soup and then split the beets four ways, watermelon tartare, burrata, crudo and whipped butter potatoes. For dessert, they brought over the churros and an innovative banana split. All the food was excellent and well presented, but th watermelon tartate takes the cake. It's entirely vegan and the flavor combination is out of this world. 2) Drink: They have a full cocktails, beer and wine menu. If you don't have the wine, you can bring your own if you call ahead. (They'll charge a corkage fee.) Off the menu, they make mocktails if you tell them what flavors you like. My wife's citrus mocktail was well made. I ordered the Amazonian and it was excellent with the coconut whip. 3) Service: Our service was on point. We were seated the moment we arrived for our 8:30 p.m. reservation and our server was efficient, pleasant and knowledgeable on the menu. 4) Experience: From the service to the atmosphere to the food, it was a great dining experience. They follow all pandemic protocols. Despite being full of all kinds of people, we felt far enough away and covid-safe. 5) Parking: This can be a challenge being in downtown, but we found street parking for $3 by the Rice Bar along 9th Street NW near Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

Blvknative: Going to dirty habit for Valentines Day was top tier! The ambience was everything I was expecting! The deal as far as food and drinks were top of the line! Truly a captivating experience for my company and I.

Shannon A. McGhee: Top tier restaurant/ bar atmosphere. Food was very delicious. We had a private party in one there spaces. Food and alcohol was served. The staff were more than exceptional. Everything was jaw dropping that night. The bars was fully stocked, the outdoor seating Area was a magical scene setting the tone for the evening. I'll be back as this has become my favorite spot now. See ya soon.

Heather Walker: Amazing beautiful place, food was great. Our server unfortunately wasn't the friendliest or most attentive. Prices are pretty high for what you get. 20% Gratuity was taken out automatically.
Response: Hi Heather — Thanks for stopping by, and we appreciate the kind words! But we’re sorry to hear there were certain aspects that we didn’t deliver on. We’ve noted your comments for the next team meeting, but if there’s anything more you’d like to mention or talk to someone about, please email stephanie.carre@dirtyhabitdc.com and she’ll be happy to help!

Katlin B.: Best French onion soup I ever had! The vibe is trendy and the crowd is very eclectic. The food and drinks were amazing! Will return for soup. Thanks to the awesome host and staff! There is also a nice outdoor area as well.

Christina Hollimon: My husband took me here for their valentine's day special. It was a 4 course menu. 95$ a person and the food was subpar. I ordered filet mignon medium and it came out rare twice. We frequent placed of this caliber and don't expect to pay this amount for a under cooked steak three times, including the one they sent me home with. The soup and tuna tar tar dish were subpar as well. Honestly while I appreciate my hubby's efforts we were both disappointed with the food for the 360 dollars spent after tax and tip. The 2 stars is for the service

Aisha C: I will never spend money at this restaurant again. Absolutely ruined my NYE experience with sub par service and below average food. My group of 4 opted to do the NYE 3 course meal with a wine/cocktail pairing and it was a complete mess. Service was 1/10 as the waiter had to come back to "double check" our order minutes after writing it down. Every single order came out incorrect and we found ourselves super disappointed and unamused by the 2nd course. I had to call the manager who listened to our complaints and rewrote our order for a third time and even still the orders came out wrong!! At this point our night was ruined and already downhill but we were given purfuse apologies and a measly comp of our 2 of 4 cocktails and a water ($100 value) The bill was still around $600 including a 20% automatic gratuity forthe 4 of us and it was absolutely not worth it for the horrible service, mispaired food, incorrect drinks, and condescending waiter (who later apologized) we had to endure. Though managers really did try their best to restart our experience it was extremely disappointing for the seeming high end meal experience they advertised. Definitely not how I intended to spend my last meal of the year and definitely won't be back.

c clark: Good food, classy spot that I felt not dressed to par. I had just got in town and had on nike shorts and t shirt. But it was cool. Service was great. I'd definitely go back again
Response: Hi C Clark — Thanks so much for the kind words, and we're glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Lamina Richardson: I was a little disappointed when i visited dirty habit. It’s aesthetically pleasing but i wasn’t impressed with the food. I got the district chicken and the black rice that’s paired with it was very gritty. The dish was also paired with okra and string beans. The veggies weren’t sautéed at all and had no flavor. They literally tasted like microwaved veggies that were previously frozen. The chicken was actually good but the parings sucked so it wasn’t filling. Nice atmosphere though. Really good espresso martini! If i go again it would only be for drinks.
Response: Hi Lamina — Thank you for the kind words as well as the feedback. We hope you had a fun time overall, and we'll be taking your comments about the district chicken into our next meeting with the kitchen team. We take all feedback very seriously and we're always trying to improve, so if there's anything else you think of, please contact stephanie.carre@dirtyhabitdc.c o m and we'll be happy to continue the conversation. Thanks, and we hope to welcome you back soon!

The Hamilton: what do users think?


Anny Khaysavang: We made reservations at 6pm and were sat down right away upon arrival. Food was delicious and all came out quick! The Mac and cheese was a little cold but other than that, all of the dishes were 5/5. On top of the fast service, our server Courtney was super nice and knowledgeable of everything on the menu. Loved our server and the food! Highly recommend as a dinner spot for friends and family!

DJ G: I have nothing but positive things to say about my most recent dining experience at The Hamilton. Every member of the staff was as courteous and classy as the next. The food was prepared exactly as my dinner partner and I requested. The service was prompt and each course evenly spaced. As an added bonus, when I requested coffee with dessert, not only did we receive a French press with three cups' worth of the stuff, but it was gratis! It was truly the perfect way to start our night. This was not my first time at The Hamilton, but it was my first time since the madness of the pandemic. It will not be my last.
Response: Thank you so much!

Tina M: A little delayed getting seated as someone came in the middle of our vaccine cards getting checked, and they helped them first. Once seated was helped fairly quickly. The food - impeccable. The Best beef stroganoff I've ever had! My partner had sushi; he couldn't stop talking about. Decor was geared towards a manly hunting vibe. The lamps on the table gave a nice intimate touch. I will DEFINITELY return.

Joyful Biodun: Beautiful building! The atmosphere is so soothing and welcoming! You want to sit there forever. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional, the hostess and host were incredible and amazing. I had a great time dining here for lunch with work colleagues.
Response: Thank you so much!

Natalie Caldwell: Massive restaurant. Very attentive and kind management and wait staff. We had the single banana bread loaf with the whipped honey butter - don’t skip this. It’s awesome. The fried chicken sandwich was fantastic especially with the extra mumbo sauce (the two pieces of chicken weren’t overly crispy but I imagine because of the extra sauce). The truffle rosemary fries were great, but nothing there wasn’t enough “stick” for the rosemary and pecorino cheese to stick to them which was frustrating. Otherwise, great meal. Excited to go back.
Response: Thank you, Natalie!

Madeline Maldonado: The Hamilton is located by the White House. It serves American food. The food was really delicious and the dessert did not disappoint. We didn't have reservations but were seated very quickly. It has a huge seating. Server was very kind and polite and made tasty recommendations when I asked. Highly recommended!!!
Response: Thank you, Madeline!

Julian Fishov: Customer service here is excellent. The decor does feel like you're in some 1800s hunting lodge with all the pictures of the ducks and heavy wood. But the food here is delicious. Calamari was crispy and well flavored, the sweet and spicy dip paired well. Highly recommend the smokehouse brisket sandwich with cabbage. Very juicy brisket, excellent flavor. Fries are ok, could have been better.

P. B.: Great atmosphere. Friendly attentive staff. Prompt service and tasty food.When you see a restaurant attract children dining out with their parents, business dinner groups, single diners and couples you know its good quality. all overseen by the pleasant Irishman John Grace. Pictured is the tasty Hamilton Burger.
Response: Thank you!

Denise Primus: Service was amazing. Servers were very attentive even thpugh the place was packed. Food was delicious. Must try the boozy milkshakes. Carrot cake was really good..it was a busy night but they accommodated our party of 25.

Jessa 4Peace: This was my first time at The Hamilton Live. Went to see a Led Zeppelin cover band. The venue is easy to find and clean. Quite a pleasant small venue for a more intimate show. There were 2 bars and my cocktails were good...a bit pricey but good. The restrooms were clean and the COVID vaccine screening process was quick and thorough. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely see a show there again!

The Prime Rib: what do users think?


Arlan Bryant: This place is amazing! This was the first time my wife and I have went here. It was truly a memorable fine dining experience, for our anniversary. The ambiance of the restaurant was classy and comfortable. Plus the touch of having a piano and piano player, playing music throughout the evening was nice. Our server, Roberto, was excellent! Then there is the food; amazing! Literally, every item we ordered was prepared perfectly, and they had a nice wine menu. To top things off they have us an delicious creme brulee to share for our anniversary. We both agree that it was a great experience and we will definitely return.
Response: Thanks, Arlan! What wonderful feedback. We hope to see you again soon.

Ra'Chelle Dennis: Celebrated my Dads birthday and mine with my parents. The food was GREAT!!!! I loved my lamb chops, my dad enjoyed his steak so much! The escargot was good, tasted very fresh... as did the oysters!!! I can't wait to go back!!
Response: Thanks!

NatFan: Pretty good steak. Not the best but solid. Had the 21 ounce rib eye with imperial crab and broccoli with a bottle of Justin. Justin is highly recommended. They were all pretty good. Moved to the bar to be closer to the pianist. Late Bday outing with friend.

Isa Alvarez: Lobster Santiago was tasty. Wonderful atmosphere with live music, a piano and bass. Men are required to wear a suit jacket throughout dinner.

John Barnhart: Birthday dinner for my brother. Excellent service, excellent food. Guys must wear a jacket but they have some if you forget yours so no worries! I had the rack of lamb which was awesome

Mia Dillard: The food was okay, but bland and did nothing to entertain my tastebuds. The cocktails were of less than average taste for the area, but the wine list seemed nice. The music was joyful, but it’s hard to hear over the conversations of people seated so close to you. The ambiance is nice, but a little too traditional and stuffy for my youthful taste. The service was simply excellent. I even enjoyed the cheesy dad jokes. I would not recommend to a friend.

Hélène delaForêt: It's the ultimate elegant (bit not stuffy) dining experience in DC. Fantastic service, beautiful surroundings, great music... Love it

Nathaniel Lack: Exceptionally priced food cooked unexceptionally. This place is merely going through the motions hoping no one realizes that their best days were decades ago. Instead of focusing on whether men are wearing jackets, perhaps they could get a good chef instead of what seemed like fry cook to make our meals. Very disappointing.

James Boyd: Excellent service, superb food. Nice atmosphere. There really is nothing bad to say about this place. It's a bit on the expensive side but with the food and service that you are getting, that's to be expected. Excellent place to eat and I will definitely be coming back!

MO. B: I recently ate here and the food and service was amazing. It was the first day it was open for dining in. I ordered the rack of lamb and my friend ordered the sea bass. I would definitely recommend the creamy spinach it was amazing. They also have this berry drink where they service it with dry ice it was super cute. I would say the prices of the food was affordable but on the mid pricey side. We didn't have a reservation we just walked in. I would probably recommend booking a table first since it was day they were open.

LiLLiES Restaurant & Bar: what do users think?


Anna S: Lillies was not only yummy, but the service was fantastic, even with it being NYE and only having 2 wait staff(that I saw). Everyone really enjoyed their meals: lobster raviolis, chicken Marsala, Tour of Italy, and the lamb! The lamb was some of the best that I have had in a really long time. If my review was helpful, follow me and you’ll get updates on what I think about the places I visit!

Thelma S: Such a huge fan of Italian food and this did not dissapoint! Love the fact that you could taste how fresh the food was. Also love that it’s a small family owned restaurant but also very intimate setting. Only gave a 4 because when we arrived service was a slow but then we were rushed when the restaurant was closing. Overall great food and good pricing. The tiramisu was also made fresh so I loved it!

Jorge A. Bustamante: Great place, the food was fresh, hot and delicious. It was a great atmosphere. I'll have to try the panda Pancakes next time. The service was really friendly and the drinks were really good.

Hilda Kroll: A wonderful neighborhood restaurant for Italian food and so much more. My friend and I really enjoyed our Manchester Turkey Sandwich and Chicken Parmesan Plate. Dennys was the only server and was very efficient and welcoming.

Bob Gottschling: We stopped off at the restaurant for an early dinner after the Zoo closed on a Saturday. We sat outside in the area facing the street. They have another outside area around the side. The service and food were terrific! I had the mushroom ravioli, others had eggplant, chicken and crab dishes. All was good! Just a nice spot to go for an enjoyable meal and experience. There is, of course, an indoor area you can eat. Very nice inside for those who don’t want to be outside. Certainly recommend this spot!

Dottie Mallon: I visited here a few months ago and gave it 5 stars but went back last night and changed my rating. They post things on social media and website and outdoor board promoting specials but when you get there, the rude male server flat out tells you-No we don’t do that anymore. (This is the same server that wouldn’t honor my email coupon the first time I was there!) When you point out that it’s advertised then the manager says ok we can do it for you and secretly hands you the special menu. The quality of the food wasn’t what it was 6 months ago either. My review from September 2021: This will be one of my favorite stops when visiting DC! Lovely Italian restaurant and the staff were the friendliest anywhere. I had the very reasonably priced happy hour wine and the waitress helped me select my dinner and customized it for me. Linguini and clams in a pink sauce. The bread is served with an amazing pomegranate vinegar. There is also outdoor seating but the ambiance inside is very nice!

Patrick Campbell: What a wonderful family owned restaurant. They are located away from most of the NW restaurants but I believe it was worth the trip. The service was really friendly and the drinks were really good. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. The atmosphere was also great.

Ahmadski HaHa: Beautifully decorated indoor dinning area. Given the circumstances, service was fast n professional. The waitress opened up once we started talking to her. London fish n chips were tasty, the date salad was on point (hint: the dressing is very tangy) and the kids chicken tender was yummy. The fried calamari was a bit tender and chewy for my tasting. Overall the restaurant was clean, including the bathrooms. Well run restaurant!

Ranna Gay: My husband and I had a date night here and really enjoyed it. Started with the lemoncello and Manhattan, great drinks. Loved the perfect antipasto since it gave us a selection of Mussels, Calamari, Bruschetta, Shrimp, Mozzarella And Capris Salad. The carbonara with shrimp was also amazing. Loved the garlic bread too. Enjoyed their Eggplant Milanese with all the cheese on top. Cozy ambiance and very nice owners!

Liz Pedrick: Nice restaurant,The service was fantastic, but the food was just ok/ average. My husband had the lobster Ravioli. It was just Ravioli in a red sauce. I was disappointed with my meal . I had the crusted Tilapia it was a Gortons fisherman fillet .

Mazi DC - New American Cuisine: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: A really nice place for lunch. The service was great and my friend and I really enjoyed our food. My lamb burger was large, juicy, and delicious and my friend enjoyed her Mediterranean salad. Nice and clean, tables not too close together, so we felt very comfortable dining in. And beautiful fresh flowers at every table.
Response: Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photos and your review, Hilda! We're delighted to see that you liked the food and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. Providing quality food and services in a safe environment to our customers is what we aim for! Thanks again for your kind words!

Chioma O: Went to Mazi with some friends for a birthday dinner. Ambience and service was quite good. I ordered a Bourbon Mule which I have had before ...the taste was a bit off so I wasn't a huge fan. However the lamb burger I had was delicious and my friends also enjoyed their meals particularly the lamb chops. Price is a bit high for meal sizes but if you want to splurge a bit...its a good night out
Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review with us, Chioma!

K Scott: Cute place and I enjoyed the food, went here last night for New Year’s Eve with my daughter and her dad. We enjoyed our selves staff were really nice. Lamb chops were really really great. My little sister told me come here after going for her birthday a few months ago.
Response: Thank you so much for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience!

Emily C.: This restaurant just cross street from the hotel where we stay, so convenient. The waitress and waiter were friendly, Loved the food, cooked just right, perfect taste.
Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review with us, Emily!

Keshia Wideman: First time experiencing the Mazzi. I must say the food chicken kabob, and honey feta cheese was superb, but yes but, the waiter was not welcoming, or really pleasant at all. The owner/ manager I believe was very pleasant, and explanatory of our concerns. We celebrated my daughter’s 18th birthday here tonight. Definitely a nice ambience, just in my opinion the waiters could be more pleasant to casual guest of mixed aged people.
Response: Thank you so much for giving us a shot, and even more for leaving us your review, Keshia! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your meal while dinign with us and we appreciate your feedback regarding the service, as it is comments like this we learn from and use to improve. We really hope to see you again soon!

Anna: Ok but a bit underwhelming. We started with brussels, good but heavy, and mushrooms, which would be better with something. Bowl of mashrooms was a bit weird. Then we moved to cesar salad with chicken and a NY strip. Nothing to complain about, but just very regular food.
Response: Thank you for your review, Anna!

Tim Shea: I had the grilled Salmon with rice and mixed veggies which was very good. They have a med style menu. The staff was friendly and the food arrived quickly. I'll check it out next time I'm in town.
Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed your dinner here, Tim! Thanks for checking us out and taking the time to share. Hope to see you again if you're ever back in town!

Marina Figueroa: Love the ambiance. Food was delicious as well as the wine. Service was also exceptional.
Response: Thank you so much for the beautiful photos and your kind words, Marina!

Andrea Smith: They accommodated our group of 45 well. We super appreciate the deliciousness of the food, attentiveness, and great service. A group that size is hard but they delivered consistent and delicious meals to all.
Response: We are grateful that you took the time out to leave us this review, Andrea. We put customer satisfaction as top priority and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your experience while dining with us!

David Manalan: We were staying nearby, and stopped in at lunchtime to get out of the heat and relax with food and beverage. The hamburgers we ordered were outstanding. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We were intrigued by the menu so we returned for dinner- outdoors. Chicken Kabobs and the Wine Roasted half chicken were absolutely wonderful. We returned for a number of additional meals, and the wait staff and owner not only recognized us, they welcomed us as though we were old friends. A definite 5 star place.
Response: Many thanks for choosing to dine with us again and again, David! We are delighted to learn that you were pleased with the dishes you tried! Hospitality is a source of great pride for us and we are glad that reflected to your visit! Thanks again for your kind words!

Mastro's Steakhouse: what do users think?


John Darden: The steaks were cooked just right. Our waiter was polite and make our evening more enjoyable. The lobster mash potatoes had plenty of lobster meat; however, it was oily. If you like lemon drops then you should definitely try theirs because of the taste and presentation. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were huge. We had added crab meat to one of the steaks; however, we felt as though the restaurant could have included more meat relative to the cost of the dish but it was good. You can pay your bill using your phone. That was a nice touch (no need to wait for someone to come back to you) We plan on coming back.
Response: Hello, we appreciate you sharing your experience with us, and we are always looking for ways to improve and would appreciate any additional feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. Thank you. http://ms.spr.ly/6263boU0Z

Ariel Aviles: Mastro's was a great surprise for our DC trip. Super fancy decor, low light and superb service. Appetizers where on point (shrimps, burrata), steak was perfect and the wine selection impressive! Highly recommended.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Mary McKay: We couldn’t have chosen a better establishment to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. From the food to the service, everything was exceptional. The service size of everything is huge! You could definitely share every course and spend half the money…or if your like us, we enjoy the left overs the best day 😍.
Response: Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. Your satisfaction is our priority, and as affirmed by your review, we pride ourselves on our exceptional service. We sure hope to see you again soon!

Jaela Ford: This review is strictly for the waitress named Nicole. We would have given 5 stars if she did not taint our experience in the beginning. We were told by the hostess that she would be our “wonderful” waitress. She also came over to bring us menus and ask our water preference as if she was our waitress. However, for some odd reason the waiter was switched. When she was acting as our waitress, she was extremely short when answering our questions & seemed as though she did not want to be bothered. She also never introduced herself. We had to ask our new waiter for her name. There was absolutely nothing positive about her. It was as if she had pre judged us just because we were a table of young black women. Thankfully, our new waiter Phillip came over and saved the night. He was super welcoming and helpful. He answered all of our questions with a smile. His customer service was top tier! The drinks and food were also amazing! Thank you Phillip!
Response: Hi Jaela. Thank you for choosing to dine with us, as we know you could have chosen anywhere to enjoy your meal. We are always looking for ways to improve, and would appreciate any feedback you would be willing to provide at the link below. http://ms.spr.ly/6260wuAhs

Junaid O: Definitely one of the best restaurants in DC. Went to Mastro's for my cousins birthday dinner, reserved the private room downstairs(check with the team for availability). We got there about an hour and a half before closing, yet they were very patient with us. The shrimp cocktail and Woodford Manhattan were excellent. Tried some of the other appetizers from the table and everything tested pretty well. For the main course I had the Rack of Lamb, didn't disappoint at all. Dessert was no different as well, the butter cake was the highlight for sure. Highly recommend!

Jennifer Driggers Driggers Group Real Estate: Our family ate here for New Year's Eve 2021 on our trip to D.C. We thoroughly enjoyed the food the atmosphere and the service. The Wagyu steak was definitely worth the money. The lobster mac n cheese and garlic mashed potatoes were great along with the Bacon and sau'teed shrimp appetizers. For desert definitely must try the warm butter cake. Wish we had a Mastro's closer to home. We will definitely go back!!
Response: Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. Your satisfaction is our priority, and as affirmed by your review, we pride ourselves on our exceptional service. We sure hope to see you again soon!

Sage Williams: First time experience and I loved it. Live music, calming atmosphere, amazing service and food.This is an upscale establishment where you are expected to wear slacks as a man. Please be aware all items are "a la carte"

Rosalind Manning: Wonderful evening celebrating a special mom and daughter event. Not one thing could have been improved upon. Thank you for a great experience.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Mark Blanchard: Food was great, but service was a little slow. It took more than 20 minutes for out server to acknowledge us and get us a beverage. The table next to us was annoying. It was 4 people Facetiming someone the entire time we were there, and on speaker. I'm all about sharing memories with loved ones, but use earphones please! It's rude to other customers otherwise. The restaurant also made a mistake on our bill but later corrected it. Overall a good experience, but could be better given the price.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

Steven Bazemore: Absolute perfection, outstanding service & sexy Ambience. Best steakhouse I’ve had so far pricey but great experience cost. It was worth every cent.
Response: Thank you for your review. We’re glad you had a good experience and hope to see you again soon!

matchbox: what do users think?


Promiti Ghose: Great food. But be prepared to wait a while for your meal to come. We waited 20 minutes to be seated and an hour for our food. They are extremely short-staffed and I waited almost an hour for my meal while everybody else almost finished theirs. If you are looking for a quick bite - not the place. But the food is great and the only reason I'm fair to give it 4 stars. Family-friendly with little activity sheets for kids to do. Serves alcohol.

Codi Tyree: The staff was exceptional upon entry. We were served quick as well. When our food hit the table I was floored! It was gorgeous! The presentation was beautiful. The food was hot. The taste was out of this world. I was so impressed. I took a chance on an unknown restaurant and sooooo glad I did. I will be back in the future ❤️😘

Grady Romblad: Awesome place, yes, we arrived early, about 4:45PM. Seated as soon as we walked in. Service was attentive. Food was excellent quality. Had the artichoke and spinach dip. Couldn't get a picture, we ate it too quickly. Next was the mini-burgers. Amazing again, great texture with the char! Amazing flavor also, plus plenty of onion straws! Finally the pepperoni pizza. This pizza is straight nostalgia! Reminds me of the pepperoni pizzas in Ocean City as a kid 40 years ago.

Kayra Wharton: Drinks were top of class so five ⭐️ the food flavors were a little bland for my taste, and the portions were a little disappointing. Salad was delicious and pretty hefty! I will definitely give it a second try.

Corey Flath: Stopped by with a co-worker for lunch on a weekday. Clearly a popular place as it was fairly busy. I had the fig and prosciutto pizza and it was decent. I thought there was a bit too much blue cheese, but that's obviously personal preference. Overall, I would stop again if it was convenient, but not somewhere I would seek out.

Mark Orebiyi: I took some of my mentees at work to matchbox. Their happy hour menu is solid and reasonably priced. You tried a whole bunch of different foods but I only took a couple pictures. They are top 10 Black owned restaurants located in the DMV area. The service was awesome and the energy was peaceful. Highly recommend.

JP: The place was very sleek, modern and inviting. The service was great and we even got some freebies (sunglasses, chapstick, key chain) when we left! The food was great too! The 3 mini burgers were “fire”. My recommendation would be try to avoid the bun on the grilled chicken to get soggy so quickly…maybe have the buns on the side?

Bobbi DeAnda: Super tasty! Dropped in for lunch and the fried chicken Cobb salad is so yummy!!! Service was good. A bit pricey, but yummy, so all good. Fun mocktails!!

Kid Jay: This place needs more servers. I spent more time waiting on food than anything else. I’m disappointed in the customer service and lack of engagement. The food was terrible this day and I have been to the other Matchbox at Eastern Market and the food was way better. My pancakes were completely thin and not the same size at all. I had to order the pancakes because my other dish(All-American or something) was not very good. I understand if you’re understaffed but when it’s like this, food is not going to be the best under a lot of stress. I wasn’t even trying to stress my server out with changing my order (although she was very polite) but I changed it anyways just to get my pancakes(only!)$16.00)after everyone else had already ate their food. The wait for the pancakes alone was like 20 minutes. I hope someone else has a better experience. Thank you Maya(my server!)

Sabrina Epou: I order this carrot cake which was supposed to be a 6 layer cake but this is what I got. It was very dry. Not what I was expecting/wanted definitely not worth $16

The Lafayette: what do users think?


Laura Xu Chen: Second time back in DC for a weekend and we are in Hay Adams again after 10 years. The food never disappoints and in fact everything was superb! Rack of lamb and Crab gnocchi were excellent. You have to order the soufflé! The ambiance was fine dining yet the wait staff are so warm and pleasant! We stayed for a 3 hour dinner and it was a beautiful and elegant experience

Adam Galazka: Amazing restaurant located in the Hay Adams hotel. Reservations were done via Google and confirmed by the restaurant a couple days in advance. Table was ready 45 minutes in advance. Their customer service from initial greeting through the whole dinner was amazing. Very good wine menu and you also have a cocktail menu as well. We tried a mushroom soup and octopus for appetizers. Ordered chicken breast and bronzini for main course. For our dessert we had creme Brule. Everything was amazing and tasty. We will definitely come back.

波。真秀ᶘ oᴥoᶅ: We went to the Lafayette for breakfast. Our waiter, Emmanuel, was extremely friendly, humorous and attentive. The French Toast came with hot maple syrup and the Lafayette Eggs Royale were accompanied by hollandaise sauce, which blended well with the rich salmon and eggs.

Shawni McGraw: We decided on this restaurant to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary because of the spectacular views and ambience. When we found out that the view we were seeking was not available, the manager went above and beyond to get a private tour of just that view. He wanted our day to be special and he did just that. The food was fabulous and everyone is so customer focused. The mood was romantic with the live piano player and decor. I highly recommend this restaurant for your special day.

CRPARK LLC: Fine dining at its best. After graduation dinner with great down town DC vibe. Service was superior and the environment, on point.

Jenovie Yoka: The food was really good and tasty. The prices are also fair but I did not like the service at all. Furthermore, it was simply awful! The servers that had us that night( a man and a lady) were just not professional and welcoming at all. The were working like they were forced to take care of us. We reserved the private room for a special occasion (my sister engagement) and those two servers made us have a very bad experience. Especially the lady when it can to the moment to pay the restaurant bill. In the other hand the meals and the drinks were simply amazing!

Michael O'Reilly: **FUTURE VISITORS: THEY NO LONGER DO ROOFTOP DINING** This is a fantastic restaurant in a fantastic hotel, but they no longer do anything on the roof. The roof is now reserved for events and such, which is truly disappointing. What’s the point in going anymore? The ambience of the restaurant is nice, but not nice enough to justify going. The food is great, but there are better, cheaper options throughout DC. It is all fairly expensive as well, and for what? One of the main reasons to go was for the wonderful view, but if I no longer have access to that, then the Lafayette is no longer a #1 choice.

Stacy: Good but too expensive. The servers were all so friendly and helpful. It was unbelievably fancy. You are clearly paying for the experience.

Eduardo Rukos: Beautiful & very well executed French inspired menu with a lot of highlights. The staff was amazing and the desserts are pieces of art.

Mark Blanchard: Hands down the most beautiful venue in DC (at least when it was up on the top floor through the pandemic). Great food, great view from the top floor, and friendly staff.

Madhatter: what do users think?


Tariro Chimhandamba: I really liked the Alice in wonderland vibe. We were seated immediately. They had a Wednesday drink special. The food was good definitely would recommend this place for people looking for great food stop in DC.

Jeffery Montgomery: Nice, popular brunch spot. Hangover Bowl was a very filling and hearty portion of food. The decor was "Alice in Wonderland" theme, the other guests all seemed friendly. Would recommend for a nice dive bar with friends for a hot meal with cold drinks.

Halimat Oduye: Madhatter was truly amazing! Top tier experience, our group hosted a Women's History Month Brunch. Missy (Manager) was amazing, she created a menu with our organizations name on it which made our experience wonderful. Hannah was our server and she was kind, responsive, funny, charming. I can't say enough, thank you for making our event so special.

Ryan: Wonderful service at the bar. Delicious good and good cocktails. Great location

Jas L.: I want to start by first saying I usually do not write reviews, especially the bad ones but after this experience, I felt it was necessary. First, the food, it was unseasoned and unappealing. I ordered the crab benedict, BIG MISTAKE. It was literally bland crabmeat on top of an english muffin with the poached egg, it wasn't even in a "crab cake" form. My boyfriend ordered the steak and eggs, another mistake. The steak was bland and tasteless, the "toast" was rock hard, and the brunch potatoes were unseasoned. The mimosas were fairly priced for bottomless, but they too, were disappointing. The juice was watered down and full of pulp with barely any champagne. Then to top it off, the bartender, Freddie got into a loud argument with my boyfriend when my boyfriend asked him for plastic cups for our table because ours were dirty or had gnats in them, yikes. Lastly, our server, we had many missing pieces to our orders and our checks were wrong and had to be corrected twice. Not sure if it was a comprehension issue or a staffing issue as our server was the only one working the dining room during our visit. I hope to visit again soon because I always heard good reviews but I will not return for brunch.

Un Utilisateur Google: Tried the Thursday 1$ beer offer. And even if it tasted like water, the atmosphere was incredible. Kind staff. HUGE shoutout to the DJ that despite playing only old and new HITS music, mixed them perfectly to never let the dance floor down. Total blast 💥

Alok Sinha: Stopped by here for a quick lunch. It was a middle of the weekday so there wasn't many people but I enjoyed my time here. I had the chicken parmesan lunch special and it was delicious. The price was fair, and the staff were fast and friendly. Would recommend stopping by here if you are in the area.

Usman Ahmed: I purchased 2 bottles of corona at the upstairs bar and the total came to $18. I wanted to socialize so I asked the bartender what his name was. He responded “I don’t give my name out to people who don’t tip”. The rest of the staff is usually friendly so I was surprised. Their boss is not paying them enough and it translates to poor customer service if you do not pay their wages yourself. This is not the great depression anymore. Pay your workers living wages

Hannah Collins: food was good! atmosphere and cocktails were lacking. my partner and I both had sandwiches and onion rings, pretty tasty. the vibe was very odd - the bar seemed ok but we went in the dining room where we were the only guests and it was oddly upscale compared to the bar area. the cocktails were lame, we didn’t have the mad hatter hat maybe that would have been better, i had a frozen margarita which was ok. my number one issue was that it was very dirty. my cup was dirty. the water glass was positively stuck to the table. the paintings have obviously never been wiped down.

Jéssica Bittencourt: The place is great, they play all kinds of music and me and my friends would love to go there. Their hat drink is delicious and pretty big and fair. It’s really worth it.

Sign of the Whale: what do users think?


Jeffrey Warner: A really awesome drag brunch hosted by Tiffany D. Carter.Really enjoyed the chicken and waffles and the staff were super friendly and fun.

Apollo Ryans: Great Time. Rich the bartender knows how to pour and entertain. And with Toby manning the helm it only gets better. Next to Camelot and Umpire dance clubs.

Dom Dimarco: Went for brunch. Chicken and waffles are fire. The BLT was also tasty, kinda tastes like maybe Caesar dressing is on it. The bloody Mary’s are good, spicy and on the thinner side. Service was very attentive, thanks Amanda!!

Jon Greenberg: First time here, an old friend brought me and it's a visit I'll repeat. Pictured here is Toby holding platter of some delicious salmon tacos. The price was totally right. We hung out talking about the key themes of today -- deception, down home elections workers and race.

A.C. Antonelli: There's much more to Sign of the Whale than the exterior eludes to: a fairly expansive bar space with secondary rear bar and more seating in the back, vaulted ceilings, a massive fireplace... or maybe when a fireplace is big and fancy enough you call it a hearth. I think this is a hearth then. It's dimly lit and cozy, surrounded by old books (they're real books not just decorative I won a bet), especially with that fire going. The staff is super friendly, the beer selection is good, and the food menu is great. I don't know what "Sign of the Whale" is a reference to, but I do know a good place to have a drink and wonder about it.
Response: Dear A.C., Thank you so much for your kind words about your experience! We love all the detail you placed in this review! We greatly appreciate you coming in for your dinner & we are thrilled you enjoyed everything from the interior, atmosphere, food, & service! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Tani B: I went for the bottomless brunch and had the chicken and waffles and added scrambled eggs. Sooooooooooo good. The whale pail drink (I think) was delicious and BOTTOMLESS🤪. Also, their mimosas were tasty as well. The DJ was great and the service was too. Enjoyed myself and look forward to going back soon.,😊

Dorothea Knigge: Sign of the Whale has burned. Awful fire at 5 pm Eastern time March 2, 2022. Please we hope all are safe and the staff are safe.

Hunter Hageman: They were EXTREMELY overpriced and deceitful with their receipts. They automatically included gratuity and expected you to tip as well. I spent $120 on 6 shots. Definitely not worth it.

Anna Figueroa: Came to DC from out of town and made a reservation in advance of our trip. Confirmed reservation through text the day before. Got there night of and told to “go upstairs and sit anywhere”- but all that is upstairs is the little crows nest bar, no tables. The bar tender was extremely nice and tried to go talk to someone downstairs again, but ultimately we were told that we could sit at that bar to eat, but they had a happy hour event that would be starting downstairs, so there was nowhere else we could sit. We didn’t see any tables downstairs either, just the bigger bar. The floor was sticky, and everything seemed much dirtier than what we were expecting. We did not stay to eat there, so can’t comment on the food or drinks.

Krystie Wilson: Worst experience today for my birthday brunch. The online representation is not what you get when you walk in. Dirty furniture. Dirty glasses- not once but twice - lip stick stains and filth! Slow service! We waited an hour for absolutely nothing. And NO COVID PRECAUTIONS. The server actually touched the top of the straw with his hands after wiping his forehead! Highly disappointed after hearing such great reviews! Hope things turn around.
