"Wonderful neighborhood feel. Keeps the ambiance of a very old space (which it is). French prevails among all menu choices and our meals were outstanding. My husband loved his slightly spicy lamb sausage and my duck confit was the best I've had anywhere. The large leg was flattened and cooked perfectly with a nice crispy skin. If you go in peach season, do not skip the peach tartine for dessert, fabulous."

For sweeping ocean views and Spanish small (and large plates), it doesn’t get any better than Amada, the Atlantic City outpost of Chef Jose<br />Garces’ famous Philadelphia tapas restaurant. Amada transports you to straight to Spain, where sangria flows from terra cotta pitchersand the smell of sizzling chorizo entices you to order just one more plate for the table.<br /><br />House Specialties<br />Spanish Octopus, Garlic Shrimp, Tortilla Española, Lobster Paella, Whole Roasted Suckling Pig (must be ordered 48 hours in advance),<br />House Made Fresh Fruit Sangrías.<br /><br />Private Parties: Amada welcomes groups of all sizes. Events can be booked throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms seven days a week. For parties of 12 or more, please call our private events team to schedule your reservation at (609) 225-4939 or email Jenna.Moore@garcesgroup.com

"Get there between now an September 1. We understand it will be closing but no fault of Amada. It is the problem with the hotel/casino.
We think Amada is be best place in Atlantic city and now will not have a "go to" restaurant. We love it..the food...the service..and the view. No better!

Located on bustling M Street in the heart of Georgetown, Clyde's is open daily for lunch and dinner, and late-night fare, and serves weekend brunch. This popular saloon has been a gathering place for Washingtonians and out-of-town visitors since 1963. A moderately priced seasonal American menu and friendly and efficient service in a comfortable atmosphere make it a great place to catch up with friends at the bar over a beer and a Bacon Cheeseburger, or sit down for a Jumbo Lump Crab Cake or Filet Mignon dinner. Stop by on Sundays and enjoy our 1/2 wine list all day. Or visit our two bars during happy hour Monday-Friday for our Afternoon Delight menu of discounted appetizers, sandwiches and salads. Serving a late-night menu every evening.

"Go with a group, go as a couple, go with your teenagers--especially go with your teenagers. It is the perfect place for young adults. The scene is vibrant. The service is great-friendly staff--and one can find just about anything on the menu that appeals to young and old. Highlights: prosciutto and melon salad, big burger, great omelette and delicious crab cakes. Everyone loves Clydes of Georgetown"

The jewel of the Washington Harbour, Sequoia remains a landmark of fine dining by the Potomac. Our culinary team creates innovative, modern American fare. Coupled with panoramic views of the Kennedy Center, the Watergate, Memorial and Key Bridges and the flotilla of boats passing by, Sequoia creates an unforgettable dining experience. Please note all reservations are for inside only. Dining on the patio is seated on a first come first serve basis.

Serving up irresistible Dim Sum, innovative cocktails, and luxurious Chinese teas, Ping Pong Chinatown is a vibrant location to enjoy Dim Sum with a twist. The cosmopolitan restaurant boasts a dim sum bar, sunken dining room great for large groups, and a buzzing cocktail bar with award-winning libations. <br /><br />Offering a wide range of Asian treats, the sleek Ping Pong restaurants pay homage to the ancient traditions of Chinese tea houses. With a big choice of dumplings and steamed buns, the Ping Pong menu also offers an array of "big-small plates", all Chinese tapas style. <br /><br />As well, there are plenty of familiar Chinese delicacies, with spring rolls, soup dumplings, and hearty dishes like our hoi sin duck bao sliders. For dessert, try Ping Pong’s roasted banana and chocolate spring roll or the ice cream filled rice pastry, mochi, and finish with a lively Ping Pong cocktail or soothing Oriental tea.

"The abbreviated Sunday lunch menu doesn't represent what Yolo is capable of. And, the two sandwiches my friend and I selected were definitely the wrong choice. The fish was a little mushy and the sandwich overall had little that made it anything special. The chicken sandwich was way overloaded with melted cheese."

Located in the hub of Fort Lauderdale Beach,Tsukuro features seasonal ocean treasures from the raw bar and a variety of fresh sushi, sashimi and rolls, complemented by small and large plates for sharing, ranging from traditional favorites like Korean-Style Ribs ) to Chinese-style Roasted Duck to playful takes on classics with Slow-Braised Oxtail Spring Rolls and Thai-style Whole Fish. A thoughtful selection of wine, sake, tea, beer and signature cocktails brings harmonious balance to the umami (savory) culinary offerings.

"We live nearby and normally wouldn't set foot in one of the Las Olas Beach restaurants. Tsukuro wins!! A great table just inside from the street, wonderful small plates, a more than acceptable wine list and we were set. The fried oysters in lettuce wrap are outstanding. The satay combination is also really good. We'll probably become regulars."

"Can't beat the setting. The renovation is beautiful, making Shooters a totally different place. And, that's a good thing. Great fresh briny oysters, wonderfully grilled salmon (too much quinoa on the plate however). Great menu selection."

"The Woodley Park area is starved for good food. Caffe Paradiso comes to the rescue. Try the grilled fish or the linguine with clams or the thinly sliced veal in white wine and capers. The staff is fabulous. Inside seating or outside seating, this place works!"
