"I chose this restaurant for a lunch where we were taking clients out, and it was beyond perfect. Everyone loved their food and our server was great. Everyone gave great feedback, and I get to choose the restaurants from now on. The lobster risotto was perfect, and it was a good amount of lobster. The butternut squash soup is very trendy right now, but also deliciously smooth and well seasoned. Portion sizes were enough to be full but didn't seem outrageous. It's definitely a finish your plate and still have just enough room for a bite of an appetizer or dessert. I will definitely be coming back, both with clients and by myself."

Our newest location! Reservations are not required. Contact us for large parties or special events. Feel free to contact us regarding our seating policy. Yes, we do serve brunch/lunch on Sunday with a great prix fixe including "The Best French Toast in DC", Steak and Eggs, Eggs Benedict and bottomless bloody Marys, mimosas and screwdrivers. During the evenings, Medium Rare offers a unique, prix fixe dinning experience of artisan bread; a mixed green salad; prime, dry-aged steak; and hand-cut fries in a relaxed, fun, neighborhood environment. As we do only one thing, we do our best to make the food and experience exceptional and also a good value. There are only a carefully selected wines, spirits, and draft beer choices. We offer an off-menu vegetarian option.

"I took my sister for her birthday brunch and we had an ok time. It wasn't anything to write home about, but it also wasn't a bad time & I have no complaints. I love the price for the amount of food and bottomless drinks, bottomless usually = pricey. That aside, I wish that they had more options. Not on the menu as a whole, but on things like eggs or the steak/mushrooms on the eggs benedict (premade so can't separate steak and mushrooms). They can make eggs two ways, scrambled hard, or poached extra runny (they use a machine & can only cook to one temp). I like my eggs poached to just pass runny, so I was a little disappointed, but the steak frites entree was good. For price, it's a good bet, but there are other places equal if not better"

"First, I have to start by applauding our server. Sam C., wherever you are, you are the best. My friend and I decided to come in for a quick brunch, I wasn't in a dainty type of food mood, & he wouldn't have gone for it either. When we came in, Sam introduced himself, gave us all the details about the menu, and chatted us up. Not with one of those awkward "I'm your server so I have to talk to you." convos, but a genuine talk just to feel us out and make even more stellar recommendations. He was quick with our bottomless beverages (beermosas changed my life) and our food was even quicker (and painfully good). Sam was busy, but he never let on to us that we weren't his most important guests. Sam, we will be back, and we're asking for you!"

Finn & Porter, located in Alexandria, Virginia's Mark Center <br />delights guests palates with fresh seafood flown in daily (the FINNs) and dry aged Prime Grade beef (think PORTER house) prepared by talented Chef Thomas Dillon. In addition to the fresh seafood and beef, this exciting destination features a five-foot-long iced crustacean bar with a wide selection of shellfish. If you prefer sushi, the award winning sushi chef showcases his techniques by rolling out sashimi and exotic sushi creations. The handsome interior, replete with luxurious burnt orange sueded-leather Pullman booths and high-top tables, is perfect for friendly groupings, singles and visitors. Come enjoy the Gleaming glass and soaring spaces. A nonstop bar with innovative cocktails and select wines.

"We went because the restaurant is exactly two minutes from my apartment and didn't have time to make the trek to any of our fave brunch spots in DC. We found that the service was a little slow, but, we ordered from the menu and didn't get buffet. I think that threw them off a bit as they expect people to get the buffet and don't have enough servers. Our server did however stand out because when one of our orders was incorrect (one guest ordered her eggs poached hard and another asked for regular, both were brought hard) he removed it from the bill. All in all, good food as far as hotel restaurant brunches go in a nice setting."

Eatonville is the premier southern food restaurant in the city offering both traditional and non-traditional southern dishes. Sited in the historic U Street Corridor, the restaurant highlights Zora Neale Hurston's strong connection to Washington DC.

"A group of us brought our friend here for his birthday. We started with great cocktails (between the 5 of us we tried each one of the one's on their menu, all delicious) and then dove straight into the meal, no appetizers. The friend chicken was fantastic, the mac and cheese tasty, my burger was delicious (they even managed to make it medium rare how I requested, even with the thin patties!), and the salmon was moist and savory. I always enjoy Eatonville, even when they took my favorite item off the menu, and will continue to come back, particularly due to the service. Our waitress had two large top tables and yet still managed to get everything correct, even our bill when we had to divide it up, all with a smile. Everyone was pleased."

Jaleo brings alive the spirit and flavors of Spain with a menu reflecting the rich regional diversity of classical and contemporary Spanish cuisine, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés. Jaleo offers an impressive assortment of tapas, the traditional small dishes of Spain, as well as savory paellas, superb sangrias and a fine selection of Spanish wines and Sherries in a festive, casual atmosphere.
