"Kind of off the beaten tracks, but a great conversion underway from mainly a wine bar to a pretty decent restaurant. Not much ambiance, but food presented beautifully and very tasty. Cold soup was superb, as were the Eggs Benedict. Salad sides were a bit overgenerous with the salt, but edible and fresh."

A most charming dining spot, the Old Angler's Inn has been immortalized in countless Washington D.C. novels as a romantic winter getaway, sitting before the fireplace and perusing the menu. It is equally glorious in the summer when the main action moves to the incomparable terrace.

"We just wanted to go out on a beautiful Friday evening for outdoor dining. No special occasion, but the place surprised me. I'd dined there 30 years ago, and I didn't remember much about the food as I was searching then, as now, for ambience, of which this place has in abundance. But our two main dishes, the pork shoulder and the ribeye/short rib combo, were excellent. Both were tender and flavorful, well-presented, and the veggies were perfectly seasoned. Wines are a little pricey, and they don't allow you to bring your own, but overall the place was a great re-discovery, sort of shockingly so. Romantic and pretty into the evening. Patio dining. Service was attentive without being overbearing. We skipped dessert. Worth the trip."
