Fodor's Review

This multichambered seafood restaurant has a raw bar downstairs, with a more casual array of dishes to bridge from lunch into dinner, and more formal dining rooms upstairs, but the mood of quiet elegance remains. The open kitchen upstairs allows you to watch chef Bob Kinkead and company turn out an eclectic menu inspired by Kinkead's New England roots and by the cuisines of Asia and Latin America. Don't miss the signature dish—salmon encrusted with pumpkin seeds and served with a ragout of crab, shrimp, and corn. Save room for dessert, because the lemon sampler, which includes a meringue tart and pudding cake, is a knockout.

real fried clams! real seafood!

This is one of the few really good seafood restaurants in town...and the only place to order New England-style fried clams! Outstanding choice of oysters, as well as cherrystones. Earlier writer is correct: Eating (and drinking) at the bar is a pleasure. Great location: on the GW 'campus' (such as it is), a block from Pa. Ave., IMF, World bank, and not far from White House. Only drawbacks: cost ($$$-$$$$), parking (except for after rush-hour),

and average-to-slow service.

No major kinks

Their salmon special was not bad, though some may find it overwhelming with so many things going on with the salmon. The atmostphere and service were good, though they were pretty busy
