"I have dined there many times and only once have I had a less than satisfactory dining experience. The seafood is fresh and prepared well. The choice of oysters alone is enough to make me return. The fried Ipswitch clams are also consistently good, as is the rockfish when available.
The service staff is young and seems well versed in the kitchen preparations. Service is not fussy nor is one ignored; they seem to have it just right. In summary, a insistently good restaurant and bar."

MIX Bar and Grille opened in September 2013 to huge crowds and rave reviews. Mix has quickly become the Potomac spot, a bar and American bistro offering unique drinks, unbelievable food, and an urban atmosphere in the heart of The Village.

"New menu befits a trendy bistro with a good assortment of both hot and cold appetizers/small plates and a variety of dinner selections. The wine list (by the bottle) is extensive and wine is also available by the glass from the house selections. Prices for both the food and liquor were reasonable. The service staff were young and energetic and there were no complaints about the presentation or timing of the various components to our meal.
The bar is very long and stylish, but avoid the Parisian-like tables and chairs in the very front of the restaurant. They may well be the most uncomfortable seating in all of Montgomery County."

Guardado's serves up authentic, flavorful dishes from Spain and Latin America, in a casual and inviting atmosphere, in the heart of Bethesda, Maryland. We now offer Brunch on Sundays <br /><br />Chef Nicolas Guardado and his wife Reyna opened Guardado's Restaurant in 2007. Guardado brought with him a wealth of experience, rising through the ranks at local-area tapas restaurant Jaleo to a seasoned head chef. <br /><br />Now, he is infusing that knowledge into his own restaurant, as well as adding some popular Latin American entrees and some traditional dishes from his native Salvadorean background to Guardado's extensive menu. <br /><br />

Open Wednesday thru Sunday at 5pm for dinner<br />We are a small, quaint steakhouse, so trying to accommodate tables over 6 guests on weekends becomes a challenge...however, it is a challenge that we are up to! Please make the reservation on line and leave a message in the reservation notes with the actual time and size of your group, as well as direct contact information, and we will contact you directly with our availability.

"The restaurant works well for both a quiet dinner for two or for a group out for an evening of celebration. We have dined there well over 20 times in the last two years and have always been pleased. The rooms have a warm ambience, the menu always has something new and the cocktails are inventive. Bill, Harley, Audrey and Laura make it the closest thing to CHEERS on the Eastern Shore. The steak selection is second to none and the oyster nights are the best part of winter. The appetizers are unique and served with a flair. Go with a smile and you won't be disappointed; It's the best addition to St Michaels in over 30 years."
