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.

"The food was average. I would characterize it as a traditional seafood restaurant (code for old fashioned). The decor is very dark and dated. The clientele leaned towards the 55+ crowd, which just made it feel even more dated. My crab cakes were okay, but I've had better in this area. On the bright side, they did have a nice wine selection and our server was very pleasant. I'm not sure we'll return."

"It's been a while since I had last dined at the Hamilton and they've trimmed down their menu, and I think they may have trimmed it down a bit too much. I would have liked a couple more entree salad options. I ended up getting the Mediterranean sea bass - which was beautifully prepared. Unfortunately, the dish's sides (quinoa, glazed turnips, red cabbage) were disappointing and the imbalance of flavor, put off the dish. The cabbage was overwhelmed by vinegar and my two lumps of turnips were undercooked. The quinoa absorbed all of the (not-so-pleasant) flavor of the cabbage. My husband got the ribeye frites and enjoyed his dish. The dolce de leche milkshake I had for dessert was almost good enough to make me forget about that horrible vinegary cabbage, but not quite. Lastly, our server was pleasant and checked in when we first got our plates and then just as we were finishing. Shortly thereafter, one of the managers came by doing their rounds checking on guests (we did not ask for one), so I took the opportunity to mention to them that my dish's sides were not up to par. He apologized and offered to change out my sides, but at that point I was finished with my fish - so there was no need/point. I appreciated the offer nonetheless. A discount on our check would have been nice, but that didn't happen."

 Rosa Mexicano - Chevy Chase
Rosa Mexicano - Chevy Chase
In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened in New York City. Playing a leading role in defining what was then a "new" cuisine to American diners, Rosa Mexicano delivers authentic Mexican cooking in an accessible, stylishly festive atmosphere. Rosa Mexicano's menu features a range of award-winning signature dishes, including our Guacamole en Molcajete, in a traditional lava rock mortar. Described by Time Out New York as "green ecstasy in a stone bowl," it is prepared table side and served with house made chips, warm corn tortillas and condiment salsas. Rosa Mexicano is also known for the Frozen Pomegranate Margarita, as well as the modern and festive ambiance.

"We have been to the other locations in DC and at National Harbor - but was our first time at the Chevy Chase location. There were signs that we should not have stayed ...
Red flag #1- Dining room was practically empty.
Red flag #2- Server was inattentive.
Red flag #3- We had to send back two drinks -- way too heavy-handed on the tequilla.
We ordered what we thought was a "safe choice" and an easy, can't-mess-up dish -- we were wrong. The Chicken Suizas enchiladas were smothered in an off-putting sauce - bitter and overpowering. We were not crazy about sending another thing back, so we soldiered on and just ate the chicken inside the enchiladas - but even that lacked seasoning and was a bit dry.
The only positive thing I can say is the chips/salsa are good - and thank god for that because it was practically my dinner.
The drinks and food DO NOT live up to the cost per plate. Not happy. We do not plan to return to this location.

"The service was impeccable. We were only there for a quick bite before a theater show. Luckily it was not very busy this night, so they were able to get us served quickly, but it didn't feel rushed. We also were both eating vegetarian dishes, and they had some good choices. A 'must-have' dish is the cauliflower - it was perfectly cooked and had an amazing complex flavor, which is not what you'd expect. I would like to go back when I'm not on a tight schedule and can enjoy a full meal experience."

"It is Vegas, after all, but expect to shell out some of your winnings for dinner. It is a great place for groups - although very loud - so you will need to shout over the thumping bass and other diners. The high ceiling doesn't help with the noise factor - but, again, it's Vegas, so - par for the course. The food was good and our server was attentive without being overbearing."

"We had a seat "outside" looking over the Venetian waterway as gondolas drifted by. The guacamole and chips were fresh and delicious. Our main entrees were fine, but nothing memorable. Our server was kind and attentive. It is a nice location and a good value."

"Our meal was very good. We recommend it. Our only criticism was that our server was a bit preoccupied with a large party table and our 2-top was a side note for him. Thus, service from him was spotty."
