Both my fiancee and I became ill after eating at this restaurant. The entrees of salmon and lamb we ordered were both accompanied by dishes on the plate that we couldn't even tell what was contained in them and they tasted terrible. I attempted to...More

Ambiance - 5 out 10 large dining room, rustic, needs updating. Food was expensive but good. Drinks where pricey. When I return to the Kennedy Center, I will choose a different restaurant.

The food is okay but you don't have a lot of options while at the KC. The place has lots of potential. Go for a drink and enjoy the view of the city and the river.

No. We were there for dinner and jackets were generally not worn by the younger men in attendance, while older ones did. No requirement!
