"Lulu Brazil just opened and appears to be going strong. The Brazilian cuisine and drinks are nice and service is attentive. We sampled the Brazilian cheese bread which was a good way to start the meal. I had the rib eye special and it was grilled to perfection with a wonderful demi-glace. My husband had the fish specialty rolled in crab with coconut sauce. While it was immensely enjoyable, the portion was small and he wanted more. The guava cheesecake dessert we shared was light and full of flavor with the blueberry coulis. Portions could be larger for the prices attached, but we will return as the evening was delightful. So glad there is a new Brazilian restaurant in town which offers many unique flavors and items to choose."

"McLoone's Pier House has great views of the Potomac and attentive service. Food was above par, but not the worth the price. However, this seems to be the norm with National Harbor. Every restaurant is pricey because of the views. We dined for brunch and the burrito and crab omelette were both enjoyed by my friends. My chicken and waffles was mediocre. Waffle was excellent, but fried chicken reminded me of frozen chicken tenders you serve your kids for a quick dinner. Definitely did not warrant the $16 fee. Bloody Mary's were good, but not worth the $13 tag attached. Service was attentive and the view was great, but don't expect the best meal at National Harbor."

Charlie Chiang’s has been a member of the Greater Washington DC area for over 30 years. Charlie Chiang’s has always served the best food in a generous and hospitable atmosphere. We've had the honor of serving our dishes to President George H. Bush at his inauguration, President Clinton at his reception at the Capitol, visiting international bankers at the annual China Trust Bank dinner, and dignitaries at the Smithsonian’s Diversity of Food program.

"We are regular diners at Nage. Nage never disappoints and now it has changed it's decor, menu and chef and all the changes are positive.
The new menu is very created and has something for everyone. I do miss my old standby "Steak Frites Nage Style", but they offer a similar option with a filet mignon. The poached buttery halibut was one of the best seafood dishes I have had in Rehoboth. All of the changes have given the restaurant a new life and the locals should make sure they add Nage to their favorites list. You won't be disappointed with the food, service or the new menu.

It is a common criticism that Washington, D.C., where chains, steakhouses, and take-out joints abound, lacks restaurants that combine great food, friendly prices, and a hip atmosphere. Logan Tavern puts this tragic shortcoming to rest. Located in the dynamic Logan Circle neighborhood, Logan Tavern is a neighborhood restaurant and bar that"s as perfect for a quick weekday bite as it is for a Friday night out with friends. Come by for dinner, lunch, happy hour, or our great weekend brunch for some comfort food with a twist.

"Nage remains consistent with their food and service. It never disappoints us when we dine. The Steak Frites on the menu is always a great choice when in doubt on what to have for dinner. The daily specials are usually farm to table so they are very fresh. You won't go wrong with a meal at Nage."

Chef Jay Caputo cooks up Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, using fresh produce from local farmers in menu offerings like Chesapeake crab-stuffed scallion crêpe served with ruby red grapefruit, cucumber, and avocado; seared breast of Giannone Farms air-chilled chicken served with roasted cauliflower, red onions, cauliflower puree, spinach, and Madeira; seared line-caught Casco Bay merlu served with oven-roasted tomatoes, Lyonnaise potatoes, and lobster-saffron essence; and blood orange mojitos. If you're not satisfied with only taking home leftovers, sign up to have Chef Jay Caputo teach a private cooking class in your own home.

"Decided to check Espuma out after a long absence during restaurant week in Rehoboth. What a wonderful dining experience. Each course on the restaurant meal menu was beautifully prepared and wonderful to taste. We really enjoyed our evening at Espuma and highly recommend all the locals and tourists to check this hidden gem out. It has been a staple in Rehoboth in years and now we see why. The menu is varied enough that there is something for everyone. The chef has combined so many unique flavors in his dishes that you just came wait to try the next course to see what new and exciting flavor will hit your palate. We definitely will return in the future when dining out in Rehoboth!"

"Have been to JD's for breakfast and have not been disappointed. This was our first time for dinner. First courses were fine; however, two of us that had red meat very disappointed. Cuts were very thin and contained fat and grisle. Other guests were satisfied with their dishes - a crab/lobster saute and gumbo. We thought the wines by the glass were pricey based on the menu choices. We would try it again, but avoid the red meat selections."
