"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."

The Oval Room, an elegant & sophisticated restaurant, near Farragut Square across from the White House, which accounts for its popularity among politicians, journalists, lobbyists, lawyers, & former Presidents. The setting is contemporary & chic. It offers private dining. Its seasonal contemporary American cuisine has charmed critics & connoisseurs alike. USA Today said The Oval Room's flower-bedecked patio is one of the best outdoor dining experiences in the United States. The Oval Room has been awarded the "Distinguished Restaurant of North America Award".The Oval Room is honored to be Modern Luxury Washington D.C.’s “Restaurant of the Year”!

"Really great experience, Oval Room offered a Thanksgiving prix fixe menu with five entree. My wife went with the traditional fare (white/dark meat, chestnut dressing, cranberry sauce) which was exceptional. I went with the butternut risotto, again a really good meal. The beet salad & pear/parsnip soup were both nice openers as were the apple tart & bread pudding for desert. Not bad at $50 a head."

Rustico is the quintessential neighborhood pub on the edge of Old Town Alexandria. 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 inverted T bar with 30 brilliant taps book-ended by two massive coolers holding more than 400 different types of ales, lagers, ciders and stouts.

"Ordered the pork chop & went with chef's medium-rare recommendation. It actually was closer to rare so sent it back to finish cooking. The beer selection is impressive though."
