Trademark is the neighborhood bar for a remarkable neighborhood. With a nod to our close friends at the U.S. Patent and Trade Office, we take our inspiration from the innovators whose once daring ideas set the standard.

Then knowing exactly what the standard is, Trademark enjoys nothing better than tweaking it. Someone else had the brilliant idea to combine pork with beans, macaroni with cheese and gin with vermouth. We simply came up with a way to make you think you’re tasting them for the first time.

The mixologists behind our bar program understand that some drinks are made to forget a hard day, others to foster inspiration, and still others to toast old friends and instant acquaintances. We also noticed that good things happen when the atmosphere is properly stimulating. You’ll find the mood at Trademark as comfortable as it is inventive.

Was out walking with the wife and we decided to finally try this place for dinner. We were seated right away and had a very friendly waitress that care right over to take our drink orders. For dinner I ordered the TM hanburger and my wife had the chicken sandwich. The burger had really good bread, but was kind of dry, the french fries were very thick and crispy. My wife said her chicken sandwich was really dry and had very little sauce that was to be includes. Neither of us wants to revisit again

Due to its location, the restaurant is an often overlooked choice. However, it is a very good value and option.

This was our first time, but we found things to be very good overall. Great cocktails a tad bit overpriced but good. Our entrees were nicely presented and hot. The Eastern Shore Mac and Cheese had NO crab as promised but the fish and chips were amazing

It is a hotel restaurant. Which isn’t very clearly marked on this app, but we were very happy with the food.Appetizers are a bit over priced for the size but the meals were rather larger.

We wanted to like this place which is in walking distance from our house. Sadly, we will not be back. There is a difference between rice and risotto, but the chef is not aware of it. My dish was a pile of white rice that looked and tasted like a 12-year old's first attempt at cooking. It was made with the utter lack of care. Our waitress obviously knew it was bad when she put it in front of me -- I felt bad for her for working there.

I ordered a panzanella salad ( you know a bread salad) and it came without any bread. When I asked for bread they underbaked two rolls. The service was good but food was uninspired and at least for my dish the kitchen had not even read the menu.

Great food, nice location, but service could be better. I arrived at 5:40pm, but didn’t get my drink for another half hour. I didn’t get to put in an order for happy hour apps and missed getting a second happy hour drink due to slow service (she got 14% instead of 20-25%). We’ll be back, but hopefully get a more motivated sever!

We were looking for new local dining. Did not realize this was in a hotel. But no problem with that. The restaurant was very loud. Distractingly so. Beer selection was decent. Food was OK. But bottom line was nothing makes us want to go back or take guests there.

Surprised to find service this spotty during a half-empty service on Mother's Day. No Host/Hostess visible to seat guests. Long wait to order. Multiple validation/re-validation of whether we "have a reservation" (again, in a half-empty establishment).

Food was good, drinks were not. White Sangria is cough-syrupy-sweet. Very bad experience.

The service is good, and we enjoyed the buffalo chicken pot stickers. The crab cake salad was good too.

The acoustics in the place, even though relatively empty, were live and echoed, and the overhead music was hit or miss.

So happy Trademark Drink & Eat has re-opened in the West End of Old Town Alexandria in The Westin Hotel! The premise of the Westin brand is all about “well being”...eat well is reflected with locally sourced food and healthy ingredients. It’s worth a visit for the cocktail menu of hand-crafted drinks alone!!!

Food was good, but the establishment needs more than one server working the floor. After the server asked us if we’d like dessert, and we declined, we waited 15 mins for our check. We just about walked out without paying.

Thank you for your comments, KathrinL. We appreciate you joining us for our first day re-open to Alexandria on September 10th. As we work to reopen and get back on our feet, we will be bringing associates back as things pick up. I hope you will give us another chance to show you that this type of service is not our standard for our guests. Please reach out to me directly so I may personally ensure you have a better experience. Be Well, Corey Branham Restaurant General Manager

Overall the experience was just so-so. This place is probably great for an after hour drink or to simply service the near by hotel's traveler for a bite without the drive. I do not believe I will be coming back for dinner.

The hostess and waiter were very nice upon arrival. We ordered the chicken nachos as an appetizer. By the time the waiter brought us the app the chips were soggy and the cheese had started to get that film you see once the cheese starts to cool. We asked for more chips and the waiter was nice enough to bring fresh chips. Oddly, upon the waiter's return he asked if we wanted our 2nd course... we thought this was strange since we had order the main course with the nachos and typically restaurants will bring the hot food out once it is ready. The main course was good, but a bit salty. I order the short rib & cheddar sandwich and my husband ordered the salmon.

Thank you for your review, CarlyM. We appreciate you providing feedback regarding your recent visit with us and I am disappointed to hear that you were not able to enjoy our fan-favorite Chicken Nachos. I have passed along your comments to our culinary team so we may improve for our future guests. I would like to welcome you to give us another chance, as I am sure your experience is not our standards of service. Kind Regards, Corey Branham Restaurant General Manager

Not really sure where others that have rated this highly have dined as it did disappoint me today. The burger my girlfriend ordered was basic at best and underwhelming. My crab cake sandwich was decent but not the best I have ever had. Try The Warehouse for the best Old Town or all of VA has to offer.

Service was fine, and the overall appearance of the restaurant it also very nice.

Would I go back? No, there are far many better choices nearby.

As always, the food and service were excellent. The Beltway Burger was cooked as expected and never having the candied bacon before, I was surprised how delicious it was. The Huevo Rancheros was more than expected and quite good. We would order both again. The Bloody Mary's were excellent.

We went to brunch at Trademark because it has the best Bloody Mary's. The homemade mix is the best. Upon our arrival Jessica told us the bar was closed. She saw the look of disappointment on our faces, Jessica said wait one moment. She came back and told us she found the key and she would make the Bloody Mary's. That is customer service. She was terrific and we will definitely ask for her in the future. The food was excellent and the ambiance quieter than most places.
