"I was more impressed with the food then my wife. She had a couple of tapas (garlic shrimp, cheese/meat plate) while I had the oxtail (fabulous!). We split the venison cappricio as an app, & it was prepared perfectly (seared on the outside, rare interior). Impressive wine selections. Although it was cold outside when we went, I can imagine the outdoor dining at this location would be excellent. Give it a try!"

"Surprisingly good food at a surprisingly out of the way spot in the Cameron Station area of Alexandria, just off Duke St. It sits just across the street from Ben Brenman Park & it is a lovely scene through the over large windows of the restaurant. I had the Goan Fish Curry & my wife had the Mayfair – London which was a Biryani Chicken encased in Naan. Both came with Basmati rice & each was delicious in its own way. Definitely worth a return visit."

"You know, it was just okay. The restaurant, which is attached to the Willard Hotel, has some amazing photographs (which cover every square inch of available wall space) of what I guess were/are famous people from their early days at the turn of the 20th century up to more modern times. Other than that, the meal & experience were completely forgettable. I only give a recommendation to go there because it wasn't completely terrible."
