Accidentally came to this place for dinner during my recent business trip to Northern Virginia and it was a pleasant surprise. The owner/manager was genuinely warm and courteous. The price is fair and the Rock Fish with Scallop was cooked to perfection and the potato...More

We did not experience the European/International theme of this restaurant in the decor and the food. It appears as if it caters to the 'older' local crowd who has been going there for years. The food is average, uninspiring and lacks creativity. The Caesar salad...More
