Fodor's Review

Chef Jeff Tunks's menu at this sophisticated Downtown spot brings the foods of three coasts—Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific—to Washington. His smoked lobster with fried spinach was one of the first arrivals of delicate Pacific Rim cuisine to a staid local culinary scene nearly 20 years ago. If you're homesick for New Orleans, try the gumbo (served only at lunch). And for a quintessentially Washington experience, stop by as early as 3 pm on weekdays to watch the well-heeled lobbyist crowd roll in for a deal-making happy hour.

Great restaurant in the heart of downtown DC

My husband and I had dinner here on 8/24/08. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was top notch. We would definitely return.

DC Coasts

I'm not sure what it is about the service here and at their other properties but it's as if each time you visit, they are all on the first day, as nothing arrives on time, there's no checking, last time, my waitress was too busy playing with the breasts of the mermaid hostess to check on my order.
