We very much enjoyed the food here -- really a nice addition to the neighborhood in that respect. Beerwise, itís nothing special, but it is nice to have a good restaurant offer good beer.

Posh, open, wood interior. Wine bar feel downstairs. Friendly staff. Tap list was about 12 craft beers: FirestOne Walker, Stone, Lost Rhino, DC Brau, Ommegang, Fkying Dog. Decent selections from all. Typical offerings. My Great Lakess Elliot Ness tasted like mildew and old ice water. No head on the serving. Bottle list is mediocre grocery store stuff like Chimay, Unibroue, Delerium Tremens. Downstairs was chill. Upstairs is more hopping. Nice place. I donít know if Iíd come for the beef but if youíre already on H St...okay.

Thereís an almost-naked girl sitting next to me. Automatic 5 for ambiance. Beer list is solid, staff are great, food is really good. Watching Andy mix drinks was the most entertainment Iíve had in 6 months. A must-stop if bar-hopping on H Street.

A large 3 story bar on the burgeoning H St. strip. Very spacious, clean interior. Bartenders are quick and waitstaff is good. Selection is decent - most of the draft list is fixed but they occasionally get some interesting stuff on their rotating drafts (JP Luciernaga the other day). Good bottle selection, but nothing rare. The food is the main draw, which ranges from pub fare to full entrees. Prices are reasonable but on the higher side for H St. (though, the beer selection is the best on H st.). Worth a stop if youíre in the neighborhood.

I made it to Smith Commons in a bar crawl night on H Street. The place has multiple floors and I think we went up to the top or the floor just below that. Sat outside on a relatively warm mid-Fall day. Bottle and draft selection is pretty good (especially for the area) and the appetizers we munched on were great. Only downside was there was something like one unisex stall bathroom on the floor we were on, so the wait can be *long.*
