Morton's The Steakhouse, the nation's premier steakhouse group, specializes in classic, hearty fare, serving generous portions of USDA prime aged beef, as well as fresh fish, lobster and chicken entrees. The menu features a variety of favorite cuts, including a 24 ounce porterhouse, which is the house specialty; a 16 ounce New York Strip and a 12 ounce double cut filet. <br />

"Morton's has been our go-to place for group luncheons and dinners for many years. Food and ambiance always good. We appreciated the 'special' touches they did for our retiring colleague (special 'good luck' menu, carrot cake, group photo for everyone). Our meals were delicious. Service was a little slow towards the end (we arrived at noon, and left about 2:20 pm), but the waitress was very friendly and knowledgable, and of course we don't know what other factors caused the delay in getting the check. We will continue to celebrate at Morton's Connecticut Avenue whenever we get the chance. Thank you all."

"Circle Bistro is near work, and the menu and pricing appealed to me. We found a lovely little restaurant with a friendly staff and creative food selections, yet it was virtually empty! Just 1 table was occupied when we arrived, a few filled in later. The waitress's suggestions let me to an app and salad vs entree: delicious corn chowder and amazing tomato and watermelon salad (yellow watermelon - who knew? Same taste, less 'watery'). My guest's burger was prepared to her liking, and we had desserts, too YUM!. I recommend Circle Bistro to Washington Circle/Foggy Bottom diners who seek a quieter yet classy option to the hyper-busy and noisier restaurants south of the Circle. Enjoy (we did!)"

Where the Left and the Right agree to meat. <br /><br />Locals know the “real” business of Washington often gets done over the dinner table. And on any given day, our steakhouse is a prime place to spot the wheels of democracy in action. From quiet formal dining rooms to a bustling Wollensky’s Grill to an outside patio perfect for enjoying spring cherry blossoms, you’ll find a variety of venues to suit any occasion. Private rooms available for up to 450. <br /><br />

"My lunch guest and I enjoyed sitting on the terrace on a pleasant day. The waitress told us about the 'special' soup Gazpacho, which sounded good to both of us. However, When it arrived there were two pieces of shrimp garnishing the dish, and my guest is allergic to shellfish. No mention of the shrimp was made be the waitress beforehand. When we asked them to bring a bowl without the shrimp for her, the said it was the last bowl (at 12:15). Also, Open Table emailed me that I had not honored the reservation, even though I checked on on time and gave my name saying I had a reservation."

Vermilion features Chef William Morris' menu of Contemporary American cuisine. Complimenting Chef Morris' menu is Vermilion's wine list, named one of the top wine lists in the country by Restaurant Hospitality Magazine. Combining a charming location in Old town Alexandria with stylized design and atmosphere, Vermilion represents a bit of downtown sophistication: from the exposed brick in the upstairs dining room to the overstuffed pillows in the lounge downstairs, Vermilion holds something for all tastes.

"We chose Barolo because of its close proximity to our hotel, but would select it again for the excellent food and outstanding service. Our waiter was delightful; very helpful with menu suggestions for our vegan guest."
