The worst experience I have had eating ever.
Robert, our server, ignored us most of the night. Never brought the wine we ordered until the end of the meal. We had to cancel it. Watered down drinks. Food was cold. They said it was because they had a new computer system--that's why you couldn't serve our food or bring our wine. Never refilled sodas or beverages. Offered to pay for our deserts--we just wanted to leave, but stayed for them and they were horrible. Robert then stated we were in DC--we had to correct him that we were in VA and attempted to instruct us how to eat our desserts...that we did'nt want in the first place. I only wanted to give a 10% tip and it usually takes an entire staff to screw up this badly, but by far the worst restaurant staff and food I have ever experienced. Avoid this place like the plague! We will never be back which I told Robert--who continued to aplogize and then continued to make mistake after mistake. Horrible.
I immediately liked the ambiance of the place. It's in a pretty upscale area. Parking was not great, but when I ate the food, it more than made up for it. I had a house special with three different types of fish. Each piece was more succulent than the last. It is a little pricey, but well worth it.
My favorites are lump crab cakes and lobsters. Servers are friendly and attentive to service. Pricy but worth it, best choice, compared to several seafood places in same area. Really good quality, never turn me down.
I walked passed this location several times during my stay in Crystal City and saw that it was packed. Being from the coastal region of Virginia and a lover of seafood, I just assumed the food would be great. Bland, Bland, Bland! Someone needs to go in the back and tell the chef that a little salt and seasoning would go a long way. People in Northern Virginia must be used to bland seafood - they need to come down to the Virginia Beach area to get great seafood.
