The restaurant of choice of many distinguished diners and restaurant critics, Ristorante La Perla of Washington, located near Georgetown at the tail-end of the historic Pennsylvania Avenue, takes its diners on a culinary journey through Italy with elegant decor surpassed only by authentic mouth-watering Italian masterpieces. During Lunch and Dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while prime meats, poultry, seafood and vegetables roast to treat diners to a little bit of heaven, with a long lasting memory for your taste buds, thanks to the vision of famous chef Vittorio Testa, who has kept alive the Italian culinary tradition for over three decades.<br /><br />Chef-Owner Vittorio Testa will make you feel like you're dining in his house. The waiters exceed expectations, and the space is garnished with painted tiles and Venetian glass to make every dining occasion a memorable one. There's also Private dining and Outdoor seating when the weather permits.<br />

"This restaurant has undergone a lot of turnover with the wait staff - bit not the kitchen. The food is great and the atmosphere is comfortable and somewhat cozy too. We dined the other night and could not be happier. The waiter was terrific. I don't see how you can wrong."

"While Hunting a Creek Steak is new its owner is seasoned and really knows what he is doing. We love this place and since it's opening have dined here three times. The wait staff are excellent I their own right but when it gets crowded on weekends there double teaming method can lead to gaps in otherwise great service. Each thinks the other has one covered in drinks, seeing the desert endear more. Last Friday te gaps were annoying. However, taking the big picture into consideration, this is already one of our favorite places to dine in Old Town Alexandria."

History has been written inside the walls of the Wharf, with its 1790's style architecture featuring original wood columns and beams that are charred black from a Civil War fire. Since 1971, satisfied diners have been heading to The Wharf in Old Town for whole Maine lobster, local soft shell crabs and prime steaks. The restaurant has recently been renovated and remodeled and the menu updated to include many contemporary seafood items along with their traditional Chesapeake Bay creations.

"A welcome addition to Old Town, finally a great steak and seafood restaurant. We have dinned twice since it opend just a few weeks ago and we love it. The food is fantastic and the staff are excellent and know what they are doing. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable - and be sure to check out the upstairs too. We can't wait for Spring when we can sit outside and dine in the patio. Hunrers Creek is a real winner."

Indique is coined by combining India and the unique. The two-story courtyard is bordered by carved white marble railings. Bold colors and rich fabric lend a refined yet casual ambience to the inviting space. Stark white stylish tableware works as the canvas for the artful creations of the kitchen. Appearances and flavors are given equal attention and both excel. Appetizers, named First Tastes draw on traditional Indian favorites and contemporary innovations like tapas or meze and served on small plates. Tandoor specialties shine here with rare coastal seafood and regional dishes from the south of India. Attentive service complements the sophisticated kitchen. **For parties larger than 4 people, please book through the restaurant website; www.indique.com **

"Great atmosphere, great food and selection, friendly and smart staff. As a group of 4 e had a great time. Some of the dishes are a little on the spicy side - which we love. But our otherwise helpful waiter got caught up in a conversation at the bar and didn't check on our food when it arrived (nor did anyone else) see that all our water glasses empty!!? Fifteen minutes later the waiter did come back - but we were not happy. This is unfortunate and probably a rare instance since this restaurant has had consistently positive reviews."
