"Somewhat slow on the service. Had to wait 10 min to get out water and drink orders in the beginning and waited or had to ask to get wine poured. Fish was very good, veggies on the side were bland, old and soft. Reine de Saba cake was outstanding but not enough to raise the overall rating. Also, does not have a full bar."

"Very upscale place and top 100 in DC. I was a bit disappointed that the fluke and crab main I ordered was a little on the salty side. However, when I did mention it to the waitress, they did offer a dessert on the house. Just don't expect too much salt in a great restaurant so i would rate them very good but not great."

The Foster Harris House is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, minutes from Shenandoah National Park and a short hours drive from Washington, DC. We invite you to enjoy the seasonal culinary delights of our country inn here in beautiful Rappahannock County Virginia and experience a five-course meal in our intimate, 10 seat dining room. Our prix fixe menu changes weekly and highlights local, seasonal ingredients. Chef owned and operated, the Foster Harris House serves dinner to the public on Fridays and Saturday nights by reservation. <br />Note: Because of our extremely small size and prix fixe menu, we're unable to accommodate dietary restrictions. If you have a food allergy, we're happy to let you know whether or not that ingredient is included. If you're not able to dine with us because our current menu doesn't fit your needs or preferences, please keep an eye out for future menus, since we'll be changing it up often!

“One of the best Italian restaurants in America” / "The wine list at Aldo's is exemplary, easily one of the best on the east coast” / “This is clearly a labor of familial love, and it shows in every dish" -- John Mariani (of Esquire Magazine), 2012<br /><br />Aldo’s is Baltimore’s most celebrated Italian restaurant.

"Had the Dover Sole and paid quite a bit. They would only do it grilled and it was overdone and probably a couple of days old. Had a bad experience at Fiola and now Fiola Mare. Too many great places in DC, I won't be going back. Nice view of the Potomac though."

Total Enjoyment<br>In the gourmet world of Le Continental, traditional cuisine is classical. Enjoy the perfect service, the great flambéed dishes that pay tribute to the delicious French cuisine. The Continental's wine cellar is most impressive with its board of famous selection of French, Italian and American wines. It offers a choice of more than five thousand bottles, four hundred different varieties from Grands Crus classés to affordable prices.
