Knew this place by sight, from dining out in Bethesda for so many years, but never had made the trip, so we took a chance, as they were open late on Thanksgiving, and serving a special menu. We were not disappointed, every expectation based on other reviews was exceeded, the prix fixe was priced just right and the wine list nice too (we got a Bordeaux). This was not their normal menu, we had Turkey and gravy with trimmings, and the Duck. Really all fantastatic. There was a fabulous beet salad to start, and a squash soup. The desserts were superb (choc mousse cake and apple tart). They tried to force an after dinner schnaaps on us as part of the menu but we would have no more, as we had no room left! This was not the normal menu, it was a special Thanksgiving menu. I asked for more bread. It took ages to come. Because they were warming it up, serving the bread warm! IMO the standout of the evening was the duck on a stew of beans, sausage, and greens, with potato thrown in. We were not the only ones having a great time, the place was full of other diners. Music a little loud but hey, that's ok.

I have been going to this restaurant for almost 9 years now. many Birthday parties and brunches. Ther brunch is very different from others. My wife likes fish, I don't, which they also do very well. I love lamb, I have yet to experiance it , somewhere else like they do it. It's the meat quality, and the amazing fig demi-glaze. The server will mostly suggest Med.Rare. It's is a great "special event "place. It's not cheap, but it's the quality, I pay for and the ambiance. Sonny the owner/chef, will make you a chef's surprise menu, if given notice, just let him know what your budget is per-person. During dinner have reservations.
