Fountain Review

Dining here is a cosmopolitan experience, blending unparalleled service with gorgeous surroundings—gold-rimmed Bernaudad china, sumptuous linens, elegant flower arrangements, handsome wood-paneled walls, and a view of Logan Circle's graceful fountain. The peak of the experience, however, is unquestionably the food. Miami-bred Rafael Gonzalez said he'd bring the wow factor when he took over the kitchen in early 2009, and he does. French techniques and high-quality ingredients combine to create modern, light masterpieces like an amuse bouche of hamachi ceviche on a light cracker and an entrée of perfectly prepared Atlantic wild king salmon perched in a pool of vibrant spinach nage. Of course, it all pales in comparison to the magnificently decadent chocolate soufflé. The restaurant is off the lavish but understated lobby of the Four Seasons—a culinary oasis for travelers and a favorite dining location for well-heeled locals. Especially popular is the Sunday brunch, a knockout in bounty, elegance—and, at $68 per person, price.

    A place to wow your date

    Very beautiful place to eat and drink -the waiters work overtime for you, but the menu was less than impressive. For the amount you will spend they do not give you many choices. If you are looking for a place to impress a date try the Grille in the Ritz Carlton.
