Don’t go unless you like bad food costing you an arm and a leg.

Came here with wife to see what this ‘High Class’ restaurant was about. We waled in on a sunny weekday afternoon about 2 and was told that we have to wait 20 minutes for an outside table. The young girl asked for my phone number and said I’d get a message when my table was ready. No more bulky blinking buzzer which keeps guests close by because it has a limited range.

Well, as promised we got an outside tabke in about 20 minutes.

Service was good. Most items on the menu were fish and the prices were all in the $30 range. Appetizers were around $10 and wines by the glass were $10 and higher. Basically it cost about $20% more than other restaurants charged.

The $34 fish was mediocre with no taste. Vegetables obviously came from a frozen bag with bland taste. Presentation was below average. Spreads for pita bread were tasteless.

Don't be fooled by the color of the veggies. It came from the frezxer.

The new casino is under contruction to the east of the National Harbor in the back.

All in all it was a waste of money and totally not worth the price we’d paid for. It was kind like what you got at 2 am in the morning from a 24-hour diner.
