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.

"Morton's offers a great...but pricy...dining experience. The shrimp capalinni and Brussel sprouts were very flavorful. The atmosphere was relaxing and the wait staff was welcoming and very attentive. They played a good selection of music at a volume that allowed for easy conversation while offering a subtle background. Aside from the price...just my thinking, but no steak is worth $50...this was very enjoyable."

"This was a pretty good option. The menu had a good selection with a variety of meats and seafoods. The biscuits weren't that good, but that was the only issue I had with the food. The atmosphere was pretty good; maybe slightly stuffy, but not excessive. They had decent music playing lightly in the background, which permitted comfortable conversation. Oddly, the lighting dimmed significantly all of a sudden, but the reason wasn't obvious to me. The waiter was good; attentive without stalking. I didn't care for the first table they offered us; the restaurant wasn't busy, but they opted to sit us by the noisy kitchen. We were moved on request. Not too bad; I recommend you give them a try."

"I was very disappointed with this restaurant. We were denied the opportunity to sit outside because of a large party booking, but other small and large groups were offered the seating option. We arrived when the restaurant opened and yet our waiter was immediately called into a meeting, leaving us to wait. Also, there seemed to be too many waiters on hand and they were bored, so the loitered by our table and carried on. Perhaps they could have found something better to do. The restaurant was a little stuffy and they seemed to have forced maximum tables into the limited space, leaving guests sitting on top of one another. The food was good, but this restaurant has a lot to learn about customer service. Go elsewhere if you gave a choice."

"This is a great place for a quick bite before attending an event at the Verizon Center; short walk. The menu is a little different than the average pub; the French toast is very good, but has a heavy lemon zest and the candied pecans stick to your teeth. The waitress was pleasant, but socialized with her co-workers too much and I had to wave her over several times to get her attention. The manager came by a few times, which was a nice. As a new place, he was genuinely interested in ensuring you had a good experience. Give this place a try next time you're in the area."

"This was my second visit to Bobby V's and it was just as enjoyable as the first. The atmosphere is very pleasing; nicely lit with soft music playing in the background (interestingly they have energetic music playing in the bathroom). The wait staff is very attentive; all staff members contribute to the experience. The food selection is varied enough to offer something for everyone. The scallops are fantastic and the white chocolate bread pudding is a great way to cap the evening. Bobby V's is worth the trip!"

Rustico is the quintessential neighborhood pub in the heart of Ballston in Arlington, Virginia. The menu features seasonal, hearty American fare from a wood-fired oven and grill, including pizzas and rotisserie meats, along with other rustic cuisine using the freshest local ingredients available. There"s also no mistaking Rustico's love for barley & hops! The bar's focal point is a custom galvanized bar with 40 brilliant taps book-ended by two massive coolers holding more than 400 different types of ales, lagers, ciders and stouts.

"Dining at Rustico was a very enjoyable experience. The staff was very attentive without hovering and the selection and quality of food was exceptional. The atmosphere was very inviting; dim lit with soft music in the background. The menu had a good selection. I am very picky and eat a narrow range of foods, but I found numerous options to choose from. The ribs were fantastic and the carrot hummus was a unique twist on an old favorite. I highly recommend Rustico!"

Carmine’s is a family style, value-driven restaurant concept with locations in NYC, NJ, Nassau Bahamas, and Washington DC. Restaurateur Artie Cutler created Carmine’s with one goal in mind: to open a restaurant that would serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast, featuring extra large portions of home-style antipasto, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on extra large platters designed for sharing. Carmine’s is the perfect place to casually enjoy friends and family over great food and wine, with excellent service, the way it used to be at grandma’s house.

"We arrived a little early and the place was packed; no surprise! We had some drinks at the bar until our table was ready and the bartender did a great job explaining the Carmine's concept to our friends from out of town. At the table, the waiter was attentive without hovering and the food was exceptional. The bread is a great appetizer and the gnotsche and shrimp was surpurb. Hands down, one of the best restaurants in DC!"

"Old Ebbitt's was ok, but I was not overly impressed. The food was good; I had the pumpkin stuffed ravioli, which was good, but not quite filling. The complimentary bread is your run of the mill French bread stick served with whipped butter. I would prefer a flavorful olive oil dip and fresher bread to hold me while I wait. The least appealing part of the experience was the wait service. The waitress was difficult to locate and disappeared for long period of time. At one point she brought a dessert menu and then did not return for 20 minutes. Needless to say, I am less than impressed and recommend you seek other options if you are pressed for time."

History has been written inside the walls of the Wharf, with its 1790's style architecture featuring original wood columns and beams that are charred black from a Civil War fire. Since 1971, satisfied diners have been heading to The Wharf in Old Town for whole Maine lobster, local soft shell crabs and prime steaks. The restaurant has recently been renovated and remodeled and the menu updated to include many contemporary seafood items along with their traditional Chesapeake Bay creations.

"This was my second visit to The Wharf and it it was just as good the second time around as the first! I highly recommend the bacon wrapped scallop appetizer; perfect! The shrimp pasta was also exceptional and the crab cakes are a perfect mix of crab meat and bread crumb to form the patty without overwhelming the taste. The staff is friendly and does well to ensure your needs are met without hovering and annoying you. I highly recommend this restaurant!"
