Service was great, food was good but there was a long reddish brown hair in my Crab Cake Benedict and although I didn't ask for a discount I definitely expected some type of compensation...I worked in restaraunts for 7 years and that would be an automatic free meal but they took 3 dollars off my 40 dollar meal and when I asked why only 3 dollars they said they discounted the crab cake, I told them that was an insult, I blame management at that point, it was a birthday party so the bill was already $600.00 and they couldn't comp my meal? Again, service was great but I will not go back because of how the manager handled my bill...I guess since the hair was under the crab cake they felt that only the crab cake should be discounted...5 stars for service and ZERO for management.

The lobster bisque and lobster mac and cheese was amazing. It had actual chunks of lobster, not just threads of lobster or a flavor of it like most places. Best soup I've ever had! My husbands burger was cooked rare just like he asked, the fried pickles was a perfect addition to the burger. Overall, great food and service.

First off, I want to explain that I'm not writing this review under duress. I'm quite happy and enjoying one of the first nice spring days after a long brutal winter. I decided to treat myself to a nice lunch, since I usually eat at home. I was very disappointed with the meal I selected here. The service was great, my server Gary was a doll, so I hate to leave such a pitiful rating, but I would advise against ordering the spicy yogurt chicken dish. The chicken was dry, the spice level non existent, and the grilled veggie cool to the touch. I imagine they pre-grilled and warmed up the veggies before serving. The yougurt didn't blend well with the spicy siracha flavor at all, and it ended up looking bad too. Oh and again the chicken was dry! Maybe I will revisit to update this review one day, but that might be a while since there are so many other places to choose from in the area.

My work threw its annual holiday party for the first time at Scion this year - honestly, what a treat! Since we came at off hours (2-4PM) - we literally had the whole restaurant to ourselves. There were more than space to move around, mingle, and played games. The staffs were more than accommodating (my refills were never empty!) and the owner's daughter personally came to greet/checked on us. I must say their large group pre-fixe menu was a steal! For $20 per person, we shared 4 different appetizers, each given a choice of 1 main entree, and 1 dessert. For that bargain price, I couldn't believe how many options were given - the hardest part was picking among so many mouthwatering choices - yogurt chicken? goat cheese ravioli? steak and fries? their signature burger? crab cake sandwich? scallop risotto? - my belly would had been more than satisfied with any of the choices listed! They started us off with edamame hummus, pulled pork taco, rock shrimp, and simple salad. Although the hummus was a bit plain (couldn't taste much of the earthiness of edamame), the rock shrimp was soggy and had a strange aftertaste/odor, and the simple salad was nothing too memorable, the tacos took the appetizer round home! They were beyond delicious! The juicy pulled pork, + spicy aioli + the fresh guac + crunchy taco shell - can we just eat these for the rest of the holiday party? I could honestly just ate platters and platters of these and not cared for any other food or dish. My 2 co-residents and I decided to maximize our ability to sample as many items as possible by splitting the scallop risotto, yogurt chicken, and crab cake sandwich. My scallop risotto was one of the best risottos I've ever eaten. Decadently creamy, well seasoned, perfectly cooked rice folded with truffle mushroom and winter vegetables, topped with a glowing, sunny side egg, and 4 perfectly seared scallop. My mouth can't stop watering just by the thought of having it again... The crab cake sandwich - generous serving of crab meat and loved the aioli on my toasted bun! The herb fries was the perfect compliment! The yogurt chicken - roasted tomato, grilled pepper, and creamy, spicy tomato/yogurt sauce resting on top of a pillowy pita bread. The chicken was a little overcooked/on the dryer side. Nevertheless, we still really enjoyed this dish! We ended our holiday lunch with the choices of berries sabayon sauce, chocolate mousse, and candied walnut salted caramel ice cream. No one around me ordered the chocolate mousse so I didn't get a taste (boooo). But the berries in sabayon sauce (light vanilla custard) and salted caramel ice cream - who knew such simple desserts could be so amazing? Regrets - there were just too many dishes I wanted to try - the pumpkin goat cheese ravioli and the burger one my attendings raved - let's be honest - I regret not tasting whole menu! Hope we have more group gathering/celebrations at Scion - if not at least keep it a tradition to have it host our annual holiday party!

I've had hit or miss experiences here. Overall, I really like their brunch and have never had an issue with that. The service is generally great and they've always been very accommodating.

I've only been here for brunch, but I've been pleased every time. Very reasonably priced $13 bottomless brunch with good food. Of course it's incredibly busy on both Saturday and Sunday, but you'll have an easier time getting in on a Saturday. There's a fresh fruit bar for your pre-brunch snacking needs. I've gotten an egg white veggie omelet there, which was pretty underwhelming- needed a lot more seasoning. But the crab cake benedict is delicious. Real crab, clearly hand made, and crispy on the outside with a great balance of flavors on the inside. The service is usually a bit slow, especially if you've ordered bottomless- you probably won't see a server coming by to refill you very often. Given, it IS brunch, which is one of the busiest and most demanding times at most DC restaurants, so it wasn't really that unexpected. I've been several times and will likely come back!

This is one of my favorite under the radar spots in DC. They host a lot of beer events here, make sure to check their events page out every now and then. Their bartender also gets in some great beers that you won't find a lot of other places (and can give you samples). For brunch, they do unlimited mimosas and then some great breakfast options. Nothing is incredible, but it's all good. They also include a fruit bar which is a nice touch. For happy hour, go and get everything for beers. Please don't order a mixed drink unless it's a bourbon neat or something along those lines. Tag on the garlic fries, and you're set for a couple hours. For dinner, get the burger. A delicious burger with fries that is reasonably priced for the area. Overall, enjoy yourself at this tucked away spot.
