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 11 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

"We love Signature Theater and always take advantage of the dining scene there - we spotted Blue Sea a couple of months ago and decided to try it on our next visit. It's very pretty inside - the bar was full and the tables started to get a bit busier; it was a lovely Fall evening and the tables outside were full. Food was very good - I had the catfish and really enjoyed it, my husband enjoyed his stuffed flounder - the more casual things like lobster mac and cheese and po boys sound intriguing so will have to come back shortly for a lunch! Altogether a very nice evening meal and the service was very good, friendly and attentitve"

"Marvelous specials abound every time we enjoy our meal at Bonaroti's. It is a really nice special occasion or casual evening place but you are made to feel special. The food is always delicious and service is attentive but more obsequious which is nice and non-intrusive. Lots of wonderful fish are always on the specials and they are consistently very good and very well executed. I always look forward to dining there."

"Carmine's didn't disappoint! Always delicious family-style - you don't need anything further than the entrees they are so generous. Server was very sweet and well versed on the specials. Heading to a show which began at 7 so good prompt service. Lasagna is a favorite and that platter went first! Totally enjoyed our experience in NY as we had only been to the one in DC (which is also awesome!) and were pleased to treat our Texas friends to a NY staple."

With their 1858 landscaping plan under construction, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux began adding architectural features to their Park design. Around 1874, Vaux designed a two-story boathouse at the eastern end of the Lake. Here visitors could purchase refreshments, take boat rides, and watch other boats. After this wooden Victorian structure with sloping mansard roof burned down, the current Loeb Boathouse took its place in the 1950s. Today at the New York Boathouse visitors can enjoy a meal in any season, with overhead heating helping to extend as long as possible the pleasure of dining on the deck overlooking the Lake. Come visit a New York legend!

"We met Texas friends in NY and were going to the Boathouse - so looking forward to it - unfortunately for us coming from DC, Amtrak had other ideas and all trains cancelled that day til who knows when - I called Boathouse and explained the situation, that our friends still really wanted to come - so they kindly switched to 2 person reservation and our friends enjoyed a wondeful dinner together - they reported they thoroughly enjoyed everything including the beautiful venue! Thanks too for changing the reservation so they could enjoy your restaurant!"

"We met friends from Texas in NY for a whirlwind play-going extravaganza - they had never been to Sardi's and it's truly a requirement for a Broadway experience. Our food was very good, and everyone enjoyed their entrees - ogling the caricatures is also a great entertainment. Have been several times and still enjoy going."

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar features Nuevo Cubano cuisine by two-time James Beard award-winning Chef Guillermo Pernot. Pernot's menus feature tantalizing tastes that are derived from the exotic island"s culinary traditions, which include Spanish, African, Creole and Asian influences. The restaurant's atmosphere transports guests to Old Havana circa the 1950s. One-of-a-kind millwork and architectural salvage including unique doors, gates, cabinetry, furniture and accessories help capture the essence of old Cuban architecture. Colorful exotic foliage and large potted palm trees add to Cuba Libre's open-air, tropical ambiance. Featuring a selection of over 70 rums, Cuba Libre's uniquely refreshing house specialty, the mojito, is made from the authentic Cuban recipe of combining rum, fresh lime juice, fresh mint leaves, a splash of soda and most distinctively, guarapo, sugar cane juice pressed daily on site.

"Four of us enjoyed drinks, fresh guacamole and Cuban sandwiches for a really different dining experience. Food was very good and it was nice to have lots of choices and a different taste than so many other restaurants. Really enjoyable evening with the beautiful atmosphere, too."

"We had a truly delicious meal at Seasons 52, and totally enjoyed being waited on by our young cousin Matt at the bar - our meal was really wonderful and it was so nice to see Matt as we had missed him at a couple of other family gatherings. He is moving to Denver to open a brand new Seasons 52 which should be a smashing success! The bbq chicken entre salad was perfectly dressed, the chicken very tender; my husband's trout was an impressive portion and perfectly cooked, with no bones."

"First time diner and it is a lovely restaurant with a "lively" area with more music and a quiet area - very considerate seating options. The decor was beautiful and tasteful. Restaurant week choices were good, and we all enjoyed our meal very much - will definitely bring others to give it a try - looked at the regular lunch and the brunch menus and am already planning a brunch in the next month or so - a nice find and a keeper!"
