What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We're creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe. At Not Your Average Joe's, we build like we cook: creatively, from scratch, with guests in mind.

"It's easy to fill up on their addictive foccacia bread and olive oil/garlic dip. But don't! Our meals were good, service was prompt and our server was very pleasant. They are very flexible on food substitutions and had a lot of variation in their menu. We were visiting from out of town (staying at the NYLO across the street), so it was very convenient and it was nice to have dining options other than fast food. My only criticism is that the lettuce in my entree salad, which did not have any 'warm' components, was somewhat wilted and room temp. I would have preferred it crisp and cool. But other than that we enjoyed it."

"My husband and I were visiting from out of town so we based our decision to eat here based on the OpenTable reviews. Pane e Vino did not disappoint. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing. I had the evening's special app - fried zucchini flowers stuffed with locally-made ricotta cheese - my entree, the Tagliatelle w/ Porcini Mushrooms. My husband enjoyed the Bruschetta app and Mushroom Chicken. The pasta was fresh and cooked perfectly. Overall, a very nice meal. I would recommend it."

"We have dined at the DC McCormick & Schmick's many times and loved it. Unfortunately, the Nat'l Harbor location does not live up to its city counterpart. Our meals were just mediocre and average. The fried calamari tasted fine, but the crust fell off and disintegrated. The Chesapeake Rockfish was overcooked and tough (but served with delicious potato mash and veg). The NY Strip was cooked to medium instead of med-rare as ordered, and the fries were dull/limp instead of hot/crisp. It made me wonder if our food had "died" in the window and was not expedited properly. Again, the food was NOT terrible, inedible or return-to-the-kitchen-worthy, just very disappointing, especially at the price per plate."

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's features the signature 16 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon and 22 oz. New York Strip Steak. Matched with Joe's signature side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of the famous key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the grand bar or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room.

"This was my second visit in the past few weeks - this time for lunch. The service is great, the food is excellent. Our meal was prompt, which is great for a lunch meeting. We all ended up falling in love with the day's specials. For our app we got the watermelon and feta salad - refreshing, simple and delicious. For our entrees, we all got the wild caught Alaskan King Salmon (it's in season right now). It was cooked perfectly and was simply presented on a bed of diced carrots and tender peas.
I highly recommend this place.

"We've been here several times, and this was the first time we were disappointed with our tapas. Of the 8 dishes we ordered, we each only genuinely enjoyed 3 of them. The others were just flat or not satisfying. It won't stop us from returning, we just know which dishes to avoid."

"This is a very small restaurant, so make reservations if you don't want to wait. The food is delicious and the service is very good. I would have rated the food higher were it not for a few minor issues with our meal (french toast was drowned in the overwhelming berry compote) and the croissants were not as good as I remembered from our first time there a few years ago. They also offer an express line for to-go orders - which is a nice option if you don't want a full breakfast."

"My husband and I were celebrating a milestone anniversary. We made our reservations long in advance and noted our special occasion. We had an amazing table with an unobstructed view of the Bellagio Lake and The Strip below. Our meal was amazing and the service was spectacular. The wine menu features several half bottles, which was perfect for just the two of us. Our only regret is that we couldn't linger because we had a show to go to - but it was worth every penny!"

"Highly recommend! Great place for a group. Good wine selection. For starters we had oysters -- fresh and delicious! Truffle burger, steak salad, mussels, roasted chicken, Atlantic Char -- all great -- everyone enjoyed their meals. Server was attentive and food arrived quickly. Bar stools are very comfortable and bartenders are friendly. Located in the heart of Bethesda, it was very convenient for everyone in our group."

A cabin-style watering hole with amazing food and drink, Copperwood Tavern is your oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. Specializing in seasonal American small plates, we feature prime cuts of local game, farm-raised poultry, beef and fresh fish accompanied with hearty, family-style sides.

"Our 2nd visit - this time we were joined by another couple. Overall, we rated the food 'good' this time because we noticed some consistency issues compared to our 1st. Pecan trout was good, but definitely not as amazing as the first time (less sauce and barely any pecans). Brussels sprouts were over-roasted and burnt w/ too much vinegar; don't recommend. However, the rest of our table's entrees were done well (swordfish, risotto, filet mignon). Some "must trys" are: the Commonwealth Mule cocktail, Tavern Salad, mushroom 'Bruschetta' and Stout Brownies w/ Nutella Ice Cream. Service was very good; helped us subtly wish our friend a happy birthday with a candle in her dessert. We'll be back for a 3rd try soon."
