Food was great from Sub Rosa bread to dessert. Oysters were tasty. Charred octopus was great also...service was a little lacking which is why I gave it a 4 stars. We had to bring the check to another waitress. Ours never came back.

Enjoyed our 2nd stop on the Grace St Crawl at Rappahannock. Had drinks and oysters. They have a good beer selection and some good bourbons, but if you want Jack Daniels, he's not here ! All good otherwise.
