    We didn’t order the unlimited tapas/drinks and certainly regretted it! Ordering off the regular menu got us $15-20 entres that were SO small. We left hungry!

    Great for table sharing and lots of options. The beef charcuterie items were a hit for our friends who don't eat pork. The hangar steak was a fave along with the waffles!

    We’ve been there several times. Food as always is delicious and plentiful. Service overall was good. Come hungry and leave extremely satisfied. There are a wide variety of choices and tastes that can satisfy just about any pallet and diet. Parking is difficult, but if you’re willing to spend $14 for two hours, you’ll be OK. Looking forward to the next visit.

    When we first sat our table was incredibly sticky and then were moved to a different table, after moving to the new table we waited about 15 or more minutes for our server to come back around for orders, also sat without water for a good 10 mins or more at another point. Definitely not as good as the service I’ve gotten at other locations or even at this same one a little over a year ago. Don’t think I’d come back to this one but will still hold out hope for the locations in DC.

    Disappointing. Service was poor - perhaps bc we were seated outside. Food was meh. Did not enjoy. There were .99 alcoholic drinks but nonalcoholic drinks were an additional $9. Perhaps Clearly geared towards ppl who want a lot of cheap drinks rather than food. For those not wanting a drunken brunch was far overpriced, esp given poor service. Will not be going again

    Great food and service. Very loud and dark downstairs. I will plan to request an upstairs table if and when I go again.
