"Located in the lobby of the hotel I've become skeptical with the food in most of these places. However, the wings were very flavorful with a little heat. Prices are reasonable and service was exceptional. Our family enjoyed the stay at the hotel and the restaurant clearly was part of the reason."

"Very attentive service and good quality food in, essentially, a hotel lobby bar during a winter storm. Fried chicken entree as delicious -- with mashed po's and roasted veggies on the side. Side Caeasar was good. Fish and chips predictable but good."

"Since this is an Old Town resturant and named King Street "Tavern", we expected a pub environment. The decor does not fit it's name. It's very modern and brightly lit. The service was excellent, we were very well tended to. The food was just OK, not really pub food. It is not what what we expected."

"I received bad service and weak drinks..
1) Our waiter could not understand the English language and did little to try and accomodate his limitation.
2) The jack and ginger he brought me was 95% ginger ale, I asked for a second with some alcohol actually in the next one..and the bartender mixed coke in the ginger ale to make it look like he did something.
3) Waiter upcharged the liqour price from happy hour after I asked him twice if the drink I was ordering was on happy hour
I could do nothing but shake my head and leave after getting ripped off."

"Located in the Old Town Alexandria Hilton, Share was not immediately apparent to us upon entry. Finally walked up to what appeared to be a bar area with a different name on the wall. Yes, this was Share Wine Lounge & Small Plate Bistro. They had my reservation and greeted me by name. At 5:30 on a Saturday, we were the only dinner patrons, but the bar was full.
The menu was more like tavern food than small plate bistro. The wine by the glass was pricey as were the cocktails--mine was $12.75. The pretzel with mustard at $7 was a great appetizer. Consisted of two large, freshly made twisted pretzel sticks with large servings of hot and sweet mustards. Entrees: gigantic,cooked-to-order, tasty burger and generous crab meat pot pie with tasty side salad. Dessert was tasty chocolate lava cake.
Service was prompt and friendly. Because no one else was dining, though, we felt "over-served" with interruptions to our conversation to see if all was okay, and to whisk away plates before we were barely finished. This seems to be the new normal everywhere these days. Note to all restaurants: In the New York Times' list of no-nos for wait staff "Do not take empty plate from one guest while others are still eating the same course."
Would we return: no. Been there, done that. Would we recommend to others: Yes, if you like tavern-type food and would go at lunch."

"Our book group is always looking for a good place to meet. We tried the Share Lounge and we're not disappointed. Everyone found something on the menu to their liking, we could hear each other talk about the book, and the service was terrific. Without asking us, our server provided separate checks which was very much appreciated."

"This bistro is in the Hilton and in the place of the former restaurant. It's now smaller than the restaurant was. I live in the area have eaten at the former restaurant. The ambiance is lacking, but what saved it was the food and service. Both were excellent. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The price was a little high, too. I would recommend this bistro only after qualifying my recommendation that they won't be impressed with the physical appearance of the bistro and will pay a little above what they should, but they'll get good food and service."

"This hotel restaurant certainly held it's own. I truly enjoyed my experience. The hostess was very nice and energetic. The server was on top of his duties at all times. The chef created a very moist salmon, which was impressive considering the thickness. The one critique is that there is no separation between the bar and dining room, so the noise from the large party/celebration was evident.
Nonetheless, I plan to return.
