"Everything about my experience was wonderful! The food was incredibly tasty and the service was very good as well. The ingredients were fresh and I liked the twist on some of the classics (heirloom tomatoes and mozzarella). Great experience! The carbonara is amazing and the bucchatini puttanesca to die for!"

Located in the Shaw area of D.C., Marvin combines Belgian cuisine and American comfort food with soul-inspired dishes like shrimp and grits, and is named in homage to Marvin Gaye; a huge mural of Marvin is painted on a main dining room wall. The restaurant decor gives some of the feel of a traditional local place, with a cool vibe as you enter the upstairs lounge.

"Marvin continues to be a good restaurant - good quality and great service. It is very loud and the dining room was quite full of the kitchen scent this go around. Not awful, but not great. The appetizer menu has grown and is amazing. The rooftop lounge is a hit as well! Sabena was our waitress and she was awesome!"

Proof is a wine-centric restaurant serving Modern American cuisine.<br /><br />The casual, elegant feel to this Penn Quarter destination is reflected throughout Executive Chef Haidar Karoum’s menu. Proof showcases the best local, organic and sustainable ingredients in clean, beautiful preparations, an extensive international selection of cheese and charcuterie, as well as a wine list containing over 40 by-the-glass selections and 1,000 different bottles. <br />

"Lunch was fine. I found the menu a little limited though we started with the pate and it was outstanding. Our waitress was not very attentive at all and at one point clearly forgot us. I definitely prefer this place in the evening as opposed to lunch."

The lifestyle and food culture celebrated on an estancia, a large South American vineyard estate, is the inspiration for Victor Albisu’s flagship restaurant in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The airy, 174-seat agrarian space is home to a meat-driven, wine-centric menu that is a product of Albisu’s Latin American roots and travels throughout Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Uruguay.

"I've been here for lunch, happy hour and dinner and the food and drink are spectacular!! The service can definitely use some work. While the waitstaff is kind, I have had an issue with my ire reach and every time I've been here. They could use some additional training to match the high-end quality of the cuisine and restaurant overall."

"I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The building was charming, the staff incredibly attentive, the wine was wonderful and the food exquisite. Our waiter gave us an amazing overview on the wines as we described what we were looking for and he did not disappoint. Wow. What a gem! Sorry it took me so long to find it! I will be back and I will bring friends -- again and again!"
