The cioppino was one of the best I've ever had. All the seafood was cooked perfectly. The only issue was it took 20 minutes for us to get our bill after we're finished eating.

The experience was great. Great food...the catfish was awesome. Colin was our service provider and he was fantastic, fun, and genuinely nice. This is a great place to eat or fellowship over drinks. We will return the next time we are in DC.
