It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end! Our server knew just when and when not to come to the table. It was a perfect day! Thanks to everyone who made it so special.

The restaurant was beautiful with a Rose on each table. I am talking about very nice roses with lots of petals, that was the first thing I noticed. We also saw may celebrations going on - a large party seated behind us celebrating a birthday and the staff came and sang in a different language, that was pretty neat. The table next to us was a mother and 3 adult girls and one was very pregnant, so for dessert they brought out a plate which was celebrating her pregnancy, I was trying to see what is was - looking like little feet and said Congratulations. Everything was great!

What a welcome! As a vegetarian, I am always wary of going to places who have very limited options on their menu. But when I made my reservations, I said vegetarian. We were greeted by the owner Sayeed and just made comfortable throughout the dinner. The complimentary dessert was very much appreciated. Everything that came to the table was delicious!

I was happy to be dining at Eddie V's again, so happy they're back open. We enjoyed our dining experience per usual. The noise level was moderate, the band played good music and it was a comfortable noise level. Our drinks and food were amazing, I had the chilean sea bass and my husband had the t-bone steak. The dessert (bananas foster cake) was lovely and hit the sweet spot.

On a par with any kitchen in Washington. Chef Anthony offers an ever-changing, always-delicious menu; Crystal, Victoria, and the rest of the waitstaff could not be more welcoming; and the bar always has new and excellent craft cocktails. My favorite DC place for dinner.

Delray Cafe Always has terrific French food. I’ve eaten there numerous times and have never been disappointed. I’m particularly fond of the bouillabaisse. They have decent wines by the glass and a truly wonderful dessert menu. I am partial to the chocolate filled beignets with whip cream and/or homemade Grand Marnier sauce.
