                                          This restaurant met my expectations on my initial visit. During her vacation, my companion stayed in the Crowne Plaza Crystal City. We chose this restaurant without hesitation in search of dining options. The restaurant provides quick service, good meals, and friendly staff. The manager personally resolved a problem I had with the dessert menu. Due of its location, this is my personal bar. The staff delivers prompt response, and the food and beverages are great. Experiences vary based on staffing levels and the day, but I recommend the restaurant.

                                          Service was sub par, and food was lacking in flavor.

                                          Our server was slow after he got our dinner out. I had to get up to get more water, desert menu’s and the check. Amazing food, comfy settings and great drinks

                                          At first it was hard to locate the place because it was in a somewhat secluded area with only one sign by Crowne Plaza but we eventually found it. Our waiter was really nice. He came promptly and took our orders. We were a party of 7 with 3 kids and he handled it well for this birthday occasion. The prices weren’t bad either.

                                          Happy to find Potomac Social Tavern in the Crystal City food abyss, but I can’t say this was a particularly successful dining adventure. Despite not being at all crowded, it took at least 45 minutes for our meal to arrive. And when it did, it wasn’t pretty. There were 10 of us, so a large portion of the menu was represented and I don’t believe anyone was particularly thrilled. I can personally attest to the Asian Chicken Salad as being basically inedible. I tried someone’s fried calamari and it was super salty.

                                          I ordered sticky ribs. The ribs came out as if they poured BBQ sauce on them and brought the plate out. I was able to rub the sauce off with a fork. There were inconsistency with tenderness; maybe because the ribs were so thick. Were not sticky ribs at all. I actually threw them away :(. They could have been good if they had allowed them to cook longer with the BBQ sauce on them.

                                          Pros: Hostess is nice and smells good. The rigatoni is bomb!! Cons: Everything else. The shrimp tostada had not a single taste of shrimp. Our meatball came out room temperature or some bits were even cold-ish. The steak was rough. The service is slow despite many staff members and not many customers. Not worth a visit whatsoever.
