Carolynn's Reviews
 
Located in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, between Old Town and Crystal City, the Evening Star Cafe is known for exceptional food, friendly but professional service and an inviting 'retro chic and funky' atmosphere. Both a classic neighborhood restaurant and a destination for diners throughout the Washington Metropolitan area, the Evening Star features sophisticated and eclectic American food, one of the region's most appealing and best-priced wine lists, and two separate lounges.

"The food is good. Perhaps because of the proximity to the Arena Stage, the atmosphere is crazy; not a good dining experience because of the noise level and the level of stress the wait staff appear to be under. It is one of the "few games in town" if you want a meal before an Arena performance but it is not a relaxing experience."

"This is a good place to go before Arena Stage ... certainly far superior to what Arena is offering. But, given all the great restaurants in DC, it needs to step its food up a notch to really get a great review. Also, is a bit pricey for the quality of food."
