This is one of the top music venues in the DC area and much more intimate than most. Seating is at tables only, usually general admission. There is a decent menu with several vegetarian options, excellent selection of beer and wine. Prices are moderate. The only annoying thing is they charge for water. We've seen many extraordinary performances there. The place seems to inspire artists.

Very cozy place. There are no bad seats. Arrive early so you can eat and pay your check before the show begins as they turn off the lights when the show starts. Very good venue for concerts. Ticket purchase does not include food. Food is moderately priced. Very diverse food selection. Great customer service.

I’ve only been here once to see a band that I adore. The acoustics are some of the best in the area and it’s a really intimate sound space. Sound wise I would give them five stars, but most shows also include dinner. Dinner is a little pricey and lacks finesse. I asked to make some substitutions on my dish and I was told no. Overall it’s a great place to see a concert, but I would maybe eat before hand.

Always a great place to go for live music! Small, intimate setting with table seating- not a bad seat in the house. Full menu and bar. Lots of gluten free options if that's important to you. Great lineup of shows - check their schedule online.

My favorite place to see a show by far! The flat rate tickets and priority seating is ingenious. I have sat in several locations and there really hasn't been a bad seat. The food is good, but expensive. It's no different at any other venue though. That is just typical concert food prices. The variety is great, because you can order more than just a hot dog or hamburger. I have seen around 6 shows here and will definitely be returning.
