During our stay at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., my wife and I had a very enjoyable lunch at P.O.V. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We shared mushroom fritter balls which were excellent. They were fresh, hot and crispy on the outside,...More

This is one of those places where the restaurant feels its prices are justified by the fact that it provides you with a good view over Washington. The view was good, the service reasonable if a bit harried and the food was also good -...More

Although POV is one of the top-rated rooftop bars in DC, I was rather disappointed during my visit. The service was average and the waitresses were rather rude and took a long time to actually serve us. In addition, there is a minimum on your...More
