Franklin's Restaurant

Reviewed By momof4inmd - Salisbury, Maryland

I had mixed feelings on my review for this local restaurant. On one hand I can see where it is popular but on the other our visit was less than amazing. We visited on a Sunday right at lunchtime. We only had to wait about 5-10 minutes for a table of 4. The paid parking lot is free on Sundays so that was nice. My hubby was impressed with their beer selection. The onion rings are huge and sprinkled with ole bay seasoning. I would probably recommend staying away from anything breaded and fried on the menu. The onion rings and the fish and chips just have way too much breading. I ordered a bun less burger with a side of kale and chard. It was tasty and I liked the spicy mayo on top. My daughter ordered the jambalaya. The portion size was extremely small. My husband ordered the bean burger which he said was good but did appear to be dry. Lastly, don’t order the homemade root beer. Really not good at all. For 4 of us our bill was $80 which is a little high in my opinion for what we received. Maybe we just ordered the wrong items or hit them on an off day. Check out the cute attached country store. Tons of unique items and gifts. Wine, beer and snacks are sold there too.

Sardis Chicken

Reviewed By toohalfpints - Capitol Heights, Maryland

Seriously one of the best restaurants Capitol Heights has to offer. The charbroiled chicken, is of course, always fantastic, but Sardi's does have a few other quality items worth checking out. My off-the-beaten path recommendations: the salmon skewers and churrasco de pollo.

Barmini

Reviewed By presscaught - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

I found Barmini here on TripAdvisor and all the reviews are right, this is a five star plus unique experience. Very cool/trendy/quirky atmosphere in the bar. Cozy, I think there are only 20 seats at most we saw multiple people rejected who didn't have reservations so I would recommend. I looked at the drink menu and the selection is awesome but high end I think $22 was the low, but these drinks are an experience.

The testing flight sitting at the bar is the way to go. $190 for two isn't cheap but worth it. My wife and I had the time of our lives. The skill and care the bartenders /mixologists take to produce each drink is unmatched. The techniques on display are incredible from liquid nitrogen to hibiscus clouds to smoked glasses and ice...it is an incredible journey.

Following the tasting they will taylor make a drink to your liking (if there isn't a seating after yours).

We could see into the micro restaurant minibar next door and that experience looks nothing short of amazing.

Highly highly recommend Barmini

Ambar Capitol Hill

Reviewed By marc c - Charleston SC

Only meal we booked that required transportation in DC but the reviews made it seem worth it. #1 after all! The location is really neat. Nice upscale part of town. Residential area we hadn't been to before. Very cute. Atmosphere at restaurant were good. But hot. Cold night. Too hot inside. Waitress was hurried but nice enough. All tapas. All average.

We ordered about 12-14 different tapas and sadly not a one stood out. Odds alone have ONE of them being a hit. Or not. Brussel sprouts were bitter. Mussels were boring and mostly just onion flavored. The recommended sampler plate was bizzarre. It was supposed to be a uniquely Balkan spread assortment. A smoked trout, a mushroom and a something. It was basically one part creamed cheese, one part fish or mushroom essence and 98 parts air. An ice cold whipped air spread that smelled vaguely of what it was supposed to be. The lamb kabobs were two Bob Evans sausage links on a plate. But presumably lamb. The "steak and frites" was dried out shredded beef on potatoes. Meat pies were OK but mostly pastry. Lamb salami was closest to a "good". And another eight that aren't worth me finding them on the menu to reference. We are foodies that plan our trip meals in advance and live by the Tripadvisor reviews. We like unique experiences and foods. This was none of that. Just a disappointment. Average at best.

I spent a week visiting most Michelin one star restaurants of DC and this is definitely the best I've been to. Ordered the Canary Island Branzino as entrée. Right away, the waitress spoiled me with an appetizer consisting of a delicious salad of greens, white fresh aspargus, burratta, flowers and other delicious ingredients. As soon as I finished my courtesy appetizer, she brought me a delicious mocktail, again as a courtesy. Then the entrée, which stands as one of the best plates I've had in my life. The combination of branzino, calamari, leeks, prosecco zabaglione and caviar is a heavenly dish. As I thought I'd eaten enough and couldn't have dessert, the waitress pampered me again with a wonderful and delicate combination of sorbet, meringue and cream. Absolutely unforgettable experience. Wish I could try the whole menu. Can't wait to go back to DC to go there again. And, of course, couldn't help noticing other patrons astonished at what they were having...

Rose's Luxury

Reviewed By rockwell121 - WDC

Not sure what the hype is about, as waiting in line for average service and food is not my idea of a good time. Four of us dined on a freezing weeknight, so the line was not long. Got in at the opening gun of 5pm and were ushered upstairs to - a high top table. Music was a bit loud and waitress had a beyond-rapid-fire-delivery, so that was not a helpful start. Food portions were not generous but the preparation was good and the meals were edible. Really annoying that servers repeatedly insisted on reaching across patrons to refill water glasses and serve/remove plates - go to Marcel's to learn how to keep your elbow out of my face: just step around the table! Drink specials @ $15 were not very special and, notably, an "on the rocks" order appeared sans ice. With so many quality choices on this strip and all over town, Most definitely will not be back.

I tend not to like chain establishments, and the daytime bartender who was ten minutes from getting off his shift solidified why. The allure of this dark and handsome venue so close to the NW side of Smithsonian row beckons like sirens to seasick sailors. "Come crash into me," its brand says, and so we did. Dark paneling and taxidermy deer stared us down. I happened to notice because the bartender only wanted to stare out the window. I'm not sure which ship in the night passed him by, but I recommend you keep walking until you hit The Hamilton which is worth the extra walk. Bad beer selection only saved by good location for tired feet in need of a break.
