I would not say that the food is better or worse than other area restaurants. American fare. What many people, however, go is for is to gawk at Congressmen who come in to eat, not to mention lobbyists. I never, though, personally saw a really...More

Our second trip was even better than our first. The wait staff remembered us from last year, and treated us as welcome guests. The food, cocktails, wine selections, service, and overall experience was top rated.
