"The flexibility of the menu is great -- for example, you can "built your own" salad or entrée with selections from various categories. The tables are well-spaced and it is quiet enough for easy conversation. It is very convenient to Metro (one block from the Rosslyn station). Both the food and the service are excellent. There is a wall of glass which makes the restaurant light and airy."

"Our family group of four met for lunch on a Friday. The service was attentive, our order was served promptly and all requests (no bun on burger, etc.) were correct. The food was very good, and the price was reasonable. The venue has a view from the second floor, so no traffic view or noise. The noise level was minimal, so we were able to visit. I would certainly dine here again!"

"I have been here several times for lunch and never a bad meal. Service is always good and the food selections are varied and well prepared.
I had the Cobb salad and it was sizable with plenty of chicken and veggies.
My friend ordered the beet salad with salmon which he enjoyed.
Prices are reasonable and it is a good place for a nice sit down lunch in Rossyln.
Recommended for lunch.

"Our server was very nice, but very inattentive, which was hard to understand given we were literally the only guests in the restaurant. It took 20 minutes for her to bring me an iced tea, and that was with a second request. One of our meals was under-prepared, and only lukewarm when it came out. Don't think we'll be going back there anytime soon."
