Not what I was lead to beleive 12/20/2011

A nicely selected wine list (the by the glass was especially appreciated for the style of restaurant), a creative cocktail list, and a slightly adventurist beer list. The service was excellent. 4 courses - First: The baby octopus was octopus but not baby and though prepared adequately was mismatched with the polenta gruel rather than a nice creamy polenta. The rapini saved this course. Second: On the brighter side the Majestic House Salad was very nice and quite flavorful. Actually quite a treat. Should there ever be a restaurant crawl of Old Town a stop here for the House Salad should be on the list. Third and Fourth: Sauteed Green Beans side and the NY Strip. The green beans were mush, significantly overcooked, over seasoned, over buttered, and over salted. The lardons though were nice. The NY Strip though prepared as perfectly as ordered, medium rare, was a Flat Iron and not worth the $27. This also was over salted though. I will say if it had been advertised as a flat iron, and offered at a lower price I would not have been as off-put. I would have already expected the vein of gristle and cut into the steak differently, but even so for the money would not have ordered it. The hand cut fries were not exactly what I anticipated. I will not return even though I thoroughly enjoyed the salad mostly due to the mis-advertised steak. I really find it hard to imagine that customers cannot tell the difference between the two cuts. I also need to find out if the Old Town area prefers overcooked vegetables and too much salt. But again, the service was excellent. more

Latin food in old towne 5/31/2010

The service here was well above average. Although we probably would have liked a slight bit more attention to our check, I think it adds to the character of this place. It's a leisurely atmosphere, and the waiters aren't ignoring you. They simply aren't expecting you to leave in 30 minutes. In Washington DC, these type of waiters would be a welcome refreshment. It should also be mentioned that they serve complimentary plantain chips which my friend thought were certainly comparable to the ones at Ceiba. I'm not sure exactly what that means, but I'm pretty sure it was meant to be a compliment. In any event, I tried the plantain chips and enjoyed them. If you ever find yourself on the waterfront in Old Town, it is worthwhile to cross onto the other side of Washington on King Street and stop by this cute Nuevo Latino restaurant for lunch. It is certainly not a tourist trap. Pros: great service Cons: sloooow service more

You can have a great lunch every day! 4/14/2010

What a great cafe to visit each day. I can stop in before work for coffee and a muffin. I return at lunch for a great selection of food on the hot bar or fantastic sandwiches and wraps. I love the cranberry/lemonade drink........and the cookies and cupcakes are the best around. \r I have ordered their special cakes for birthdays and they are always a hit!\r Love Bittersweet Cafe! Pros: Great variety of hot and cold food! more

Editorial review from washingtonpost.com 4/30/2005

Cafe Salsa is one of those rare places that can be recommended for both happy hour during the week and dancing on the weekends. I've been there more often than not with friends who live and work in Alexandria because it really is the best happy hour deal in Old Town: Every day from 4 to 7, all drinks and appetizers are half price at the restaurant's second-floor bar. That's less than $3 for a plate of ropa vieja empanadas (large, flaky pastries stuffed with shredded Cuban beef) and a spicy green dipping sauce, or 50 cents more for a huge chicken quesadilla that's lighter than it looks, though filled with chicken and peppers. Cafe Salsa offers a number of beers that match the nuevo Latino cuisine -- bottles of Negro Modelo (Mexico), Presidente (Dominican Republic) and Cristal (Peru); and Dos Equis (Mexico) on draft. But look around the room, you'll notice that everyone seems to be drinking from the same glass -- one filled with mint leaves and chunks of lime, and topped by a towering swizzle stick of sugar cane. That's Cafe Salsa's mojito, and it's one of the best around, though execution can be a little uneven when the bar is packed. (Purists may balk at the use of club soda and a splash of sour, but bartenders will hold off if you ask first.) I know the mojitos craze is a bit tired, so there are other drinks worth your attention -- just ask for the drink menu. I lean toward the Caribbean rum cooler, a heady blend of four rums, orange juice and pineapple. It's so good you may find yourself tempted to order a third before you realize what hit you. For something lighter, the Latinopolitan jazzes up the staid cosmo with citrus rum and fresh mint; elsewhere, the Brazilian caipirinha takes an interesting twist when fresh mango is added. While the cocktails can transport you to exotic climes, the bar is an austere, dimly lit room with some nice touches, including the art-deco-style lamps and the large mirrors hanging on dark wooden walls. Busier happy hours are especially cramped, as groups who order a couple of appetizers to share have a hard time finding places to rest the enormous plates. Problems are compounded by the layout -- the long, wide bar is positioned in the center of the narrow room, with a row of high tables and chairs on the opposite wall. As a result, crowds can stand a maximum of two deep at the bar, and customers are constantly squeezing up against one another to order drinks, filing toward the bathrooms or to get to the dining area at the front of the building, where, several times a week, tables are cleared for a makeshift dance floor. (If you're claustrophobic, it's best to head for one of the few tables in the far back of the room.) Come back after 10 on a Friday or Saturday and the place will be hopping with a mix of salsa fans, couples and girls'-night-out parties. Aside from the odd detour into 50 Cent or Terror Squad, the DJ spins Spanish-language hits that get folks at the bar singing along and fill the striped tile floor with slick, confident dancers -- as well as some who look to be practicing the moves taught during Tuesday night's salsa classes. Be warned: Though there's no cover charge to dance on weekends, weekly lessons with SalsaMagic cost $20 per couple or $13 per single, with instruction from 7:30 to 9:30, followed by a DJ all night. It's far easier (and cheaper) to visit on a Friday night. -- Fritz Hahn (May 2005) more
