Went here for thanksgiving, and wow! The food in the buffet was great and never ran out (or even low, thinking back in it). Despite the restaurant being packed, the staff were attentive to us and really went out of their way to make sure we had a great time! If you don't feel like defrosting a turkey for several days next year, consider treating yourself and your family here, I would definitely recommend it. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
District of Columbia's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
The crab cakes and scallops and chicken salad were exceptional. This is what I would consider a caring restaurant: they care for the quality of their product, how the diner feels and how all of that is delivered to the table -- a great experience all around. What could have been better is having your pianist play the silent Steinway as background music to add the treasure of his music along with such a delightful dining experience. Denis Casper is one of the top pianists in the District! Why not present him at such a beautiful lunch occasion. Bob Pajer MoreOpenTable Diner -
It was a pleasant experience. Food was very good. Wish the place was a little bit quieter and calmer, but I understand people went to enjoy their special occasions in a large group. MoreOpenTable Diner -

Discover District of Columbia
The District of Columbia is a place where eating out can be an adventure. Caribbean, Italian, and Pakistani cuisine can be found in the area. You can also dine on classic American fare, seafood, and barbecue. Try the Jamaican spice-rubbed pork tenderloin or the steak churrasco for a taste of the Caribbean. If you plan to eat Italian cuisine, sample the gamberi, cannelloni, or the pollo parmigiano. The District of Columbia’s Pakistani fare is traditional with dishes like Punjabi boti chicken tikka, goat dum biryani, or the butter chicken. For breakfast, you might like steel cut oats, organic cottage cheese and fresh fruit, or French toast and beef hash. This is a destination where the food is almost as good as the sights.
