    Long standing Georgetown DC restaurant. Prix fixe 3 course menu so evaluation of food a bit limited. What I and my dining companion had for Thanksgiving was good, choices quite limited on a special menu. While waiting for our reservation and with the restaurant and bar being over crowded, we were shown to a comfortable open space and our pre-dinner drinks were brought to us. All in all a very pleasant experience throughout our evening there. Restrooms are down a narrow hallway and are quite small.

    The best parts of Thanksgiving dinner were our servers, the bartender, and the ambiance. The food left much to be desired. The food was fantastic last year.

    Thanksgiving meal was mediocre. Greens were burned and oversalted. Autumns salad had hardly any vegetables and was saturated with dressing. Lamo was pretty good but nothing exceptional.

    The first time I've eaten here. Wanted to take the daughter of an old friend who is at university in DC to a nice dinner and catch up with her. The food was great, and the service was excellent. Lovely restaurant.

    We had the scallops and escargot appetizer, they were good. We had the beef, short ribs, and the veal tagliatelle for dinner. The bread short rib was dry. The tagliatelle was good. The desserts were very bland, and not sweet at the service was great.
