What better place to be, than three blocks from the White House, walking distance from the Mall, across the street from the Warner Theatre, and right in the heart of Downtown? For over 8 years, Chef Geoff's Downtown has happily served Capitol Hill, theatergoers, business brokers, neighborhood friends and D.C. visitors alike with our New American Cuisine. Our expansive menu is designed to please. Enjoy 1/2 Price CG Burgers and $8.95 Pizza Pies during our phenomenal happy hour. Join us every Sunday for Brunch and every Monday for Half Price Wines. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to seeing you soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"Lots going on in this two story converted townhouse/resto. Normally we've had great food but the linguine with mussels and clams had no flavor whatsoever. Stick to their risotto or entrees, not the pastas!"

Sushi Rock is a combination of love, passion and perspective. It is the love to eat good food and drink well while doing so with great people. In providing the place for people to do this, Sushi Rock represents the perspective that both can be done in a fun and entertaining environment full of energy. Sushi Rock embodies the opportunity to be the local watering hole, the destination, the cozy meet-up place, the big group place or the special event place. Whatever the patrons needs, we believe Sushi Rock is the one place where everyone can feel comfortable in any size group sharing themselves, sharing a drink, and/or sharing good food.

"Empty early on Sunday night but the food still took quite some time to be prepared. However, it was still yummy. Have to try the braised beef buns and the tuna tower!"

"Super tiny but quaint wine bar nestled in Glover Park. Probably about 15 tables total with a small lofted upstairs. Food was great, service was fantastic and the private selection had something for everyone."

Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. Step into Wildfire, a steak and chophouse with the aura of a 1940's dinner club. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for an evening with friends or just the two of you. So order a martini, listen to the music and prepare your appetite for some of the most delicious American cuisine you'll find anywhere.

"The first time I went to Wildfire I was not overly impressed but this last meal has really changed my opinion. We luckily had thought about making a reservation ahead of time which was a must for Saturday night as they were booked solid with a lengthy wait. We were quickly escorted to our table and had outstanding service. Our server was funny and on the ball despite the number of large parties and being double and triple sat. Only complaint was that the kitchen was backed up and our food took quite a while but it was worth the wait."

"We went for an early breakfast during the work week. It was very understaffed and took forever to get everything we ordered but the food itself was very tasty. I would try going back on a weekend to give it another shot."
