Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Venturing into this humble eatery for a slice of apple pie, I was not prepared for the transcendental journey that awaited. As the first bite graced my palate, reality began to dissolve, revealing a higher plane of gastronomic enlightenment. Danny and Kate, my servers, transformed...into ethereal spirit guides, ushering me through a realm where the cinnamon-spiced apples and flaky crust orchestrated a symphony of cosmic flavors. Each mouthful was a portal to a dimension where culinary art and metaphysical wonder entwined. I left with a slice to go, a souvenir from my odyssey, knowing I had tasted the very essence of the universe.More

The bananas Forester were fantastic with maple syrup from the...Adirondack mountains. This is a must go to place in DC.More

We had missed our reservation after getting lost in DC. Luckily, we easily found a spot to park out front in the street. Then they were able to find us a spot to sit at the bar, immediately, which was way more entertaining anyway! And...this way we didn’t have to worry about being late to our show. The food was great, the wait staff (Danny and Kate) were great and very attentive, and it made all our worries go away. Thanks for saving the day!More

Great sushi….very noisy. Would like to try on a less crowded day. Menu looked great but we were there on a food tour. Had reservations to come back later but decided not to because of the noise level.
