When I visited: Late September 2014.
What I had: Draft pint of Schlafly KŲlsch, orange juice, coffee, and the Healthy Start breakfast for me; Mimosa, grapefruit juice, and the Scion Sunrise breakfast for my fiancť.
What I liked: No trouble getting seats despite an insanely busy brunch service, very good food at fair prices, efficient service (though not exactly welcoming), was happy to find one of the best North American-brewed Kolschs on tap, above average bottle list.
What I disliked: Extremely underwhelming atmosphere as the place was full of snooty and narcissistic Kardashian types at brunch, servers had an equally inflated sense of self importance, lack of space between tables made things feel a bit cramped, draft selection was decent but not even close to what I expected, unless they had something really special on tap I couldnít see myself returning.
Would I go back? Probably not.
Overall Rating: 62
Iíve been here for a beer event as well as brunch on a weekend (not beer related, gasp). Nice small restaurant, with a nice little patio area that was pleasant in the late spring and summer. Food was tasty, beer selection is small, but usually has a few good taps. They do beer events, sometimes in conjunction with their sister restaurant Crios next door, from time to time that are worth checking out.
Pleasant few hours on the patio here recently, in the company of some old friends. Not the biggest selection in the world, but whatís here is fairly varied and one can also avail oneself of D.C.ís quirky distro loopholes (hello, Coffee Bender!).
Been here a few times and have enjoyed the bar area. Small bar area with some small tables in the bar area, can get a bit crowded during happy hour events but not as bad as more popular bars. Quality selection of drafts with some great gems frequently. Bartenders are attentive and quick. Food is pretty tasty from what Iíve tried.
I canít believe this place has been here 3 years and itís my first visit - for a Sierra Nevada event that was well organized and fun. Before the event, the bar and restaurant itself had free apps, which were very tasty. Tim the beer manager is passionate about beer and has assembled a great list. This is definitely one of my go-to places.
Stopped in for a beer yesterday just to check the place out. Apparently a bit of a dead hole location for restaurants; down P street a ways, past Pizzeria Paradiso. Thoughtful tap list (see GT2s initial rating) with 11 beers on tap and 70 good beers in bottles too. Bartender also poured me the standard shot of Jameson for being in the industry, which was nice! Didnít try the food, but looked solid, if a bit pricey. Beers were well priced for DC, and the ambiance at the bar was quite nice. A nice, hidden spot!
