'To those of us who work a few blocks away, the opening of Barcode, in the former Fourth Estate Grille space near 17th and L streets NW, qualifies as big, huge, stop-the-presses news (at least as far as our happy hour options are concerned). Gone is the casual bar-and-grill vibe of the old place; in its place comes LED lighting, brushed steel surfaces, dark-wood paneling, lounge seating and communal banquettes. A set of turntables stand by the front door, as if waiting for a passing DJ to set them in motion. It makes sense to see them, because the bar is run by the DC Hospitality Group, which also oversees Lima and UltraBar.' - Washington Post. Come enjoy an after work drink, stay for dinner and enjoy the scene.<br /><br />

"Met a friend for lunch at Barcode. I had a delicious grilled mahi mahi sandwich, and she had a great-looking pizza. It took longer for our food to arrive than it should have...others who arrived awhile after we did received their food shortly after we did."

"The concept of the restaurant is a good one...portion control and calorie content included. And the dishes sound great (and some of them are). But the service was so sluggish that it affected our dining experience. There are other restaurants that are better so why go to one that is more mediocre?"

RANGE by Chef Bryan Voltaggio offers modern interpretations using seasonal ingredients from the Mid-Atlantic region prepared through classic and progressive techniques. From salumeria, bakery, and raw bar, to the rotisserie and wood fired hearth, each of the state-of-the-art open kitchens showcases the craftsmanship of the chefs.

"When we arrived for our reservation, they seated us near the entrance to the restaurant, in a very noisy area. We asked to be seated somewhere quieter, and we were shown to a room with three tables, where we were the only patrons. It allowed us to talk and hear each other perfectly. Our server, Michele, was engaging and efficient, as was the sommelier, Dave. The food was fantastic! Starter of salmon tartare, main courses of salmon with gnocchi, and hanger steak, chocolate dessert and cookies. All scrumptious! It was Restaurant Week, which made it somewhat easier to order off the the extensive menu. The sommelier, Dave, was very helpful in recommending two different red wines--of different price points. We had not been to Range for quite some time, but now we will plan to go back more often!"

Enjoy Chef Geoff's genuine hospitality and casual cuisine with an Italian flair. Lia’s is a neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Chevy Chase. Come for a glass of wine, hand tossed pizzas, fresh pasta, or charcuterie and cheese, and the result will be the same. You'll be back for more. Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all night on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"We enjoyed our dinner at Lia's, but the service was just not excellent. We will return, though. The carpaccio and the brie appetizers were delicious, as was the short rib, veal piccata and sausage pasta."

"The service nearly ruined the food experience. We waited more than 45 minutes after ordering to receive our food, despite the fact that others who had arrived after us were eating (or had already left)! After asked our server three times, she finally delivered the food and blamed the kitchen for the mixup. She ultimately offered a free dessert, but the poor service put a real damper on the lunch."
