Not the best I've ever had, but the best I've had in DC. The Jager schnitzel and spatzel are delicious and make you want to do a dance. I just wish the inside ambiance was better. More lively. And I wish there were more Germans working.
I kept looking for a reason to give them a rating less than 5 stars, but there really isn't one. The Scallops were the best Ive ever had. The red sauce is excellent, and the pesto is amazing. The service was great.
Most places that have been around this long become tourist traps. The food and service fall off and people go simply because of the historic reputation. I was happy to see that Filomena hasn't succumb to this and still offers great food.
Its pricey, but worth it for a nice date. And they give you large portions so we have plenty left to enjoy again tonight.
They don't actually give you the whole duck! Instead someone slices it up and puts it in a tray for you. I'd you're a fan of dark meat, you will miss out on all the good stuff that gets hauled away.
Maybe they do this as a sign of some kind of service, but I never saw anyone serve Peking Duck like this when I lived in China. It makes me think they are trying to cut cost by using the other parts of the duck to mix with different dishes.
The place is way too over priced too $16 for a plate of sautéed bokchoy. In China that plate runs you about one dollar. You can get the same quality duck at about a dozen other places in the area for half the price.
In general the place was nice, and the food was descent. It just seems like they are getting over on Americans who don't know any better about what a true Chinese Meal is like.
I won't go back.
Long review because of a really bad and drawn out experience. Bottom line, find somewhere else. I went to pick up my car three different times. Each time they had broken other parts that didn't have anything to do with the accident. They were going to try to get me to accept it. I finally did after the third time and 2 months of back and forth. The car is still broken in places that didn't have anything to do with the original accident. Unfortunately I cant include pictures.
Full Details if interested.
The accident happened on July 12th. The car was hit on the driver's side where the rear door and quarter panel meet. There was no damage to the front door or any other part of the car.
Sept 8th, The first time I went to get the car I found issues with the following:
Driver's Side Front Door: The window did not work and the cover over the rear view mirror adjustor was dangling off. The service lady drover the car around to the front with the window rolled down. Meaning that someone had put it down and left it there knowing that it didn't go up. Luckily I tried putting it up and found out that it didn't work. Otherwise no one would have said anything.
I asked to talk to a manager and XX came. He said it probably happened when they took off the driver's side door to blend the paint. The excuse he offered was that it is hard to get things back on correctly. I responded that I understood and that was exactly why I had taken the car to C&D, because I was told they know how to handle those situations.
Driver's Side Rear Door: The trim along the base wasn't done correctly, the rear wheel well cover was falling off, and there were scratches on the door. The mold on the trim was flimsy and dripping, as if someone threw too much mold on it and didn't smooth it out before it dried. The rear wheel well cover was loose and I popped it off with my hand. There were also scratches on the door as if they reused old parts.
XX did not have an explanation for that poor work, but he told me that he would take car of it. I don't have a picture from that time, but I included one here just to show you the pieces that I am referring to.
Sept. 18th, Second time I went to get the car I found issues with the following:
Driver's Side Front Door: The weather stripping along the top was torn
Driver's Side Rear Door: There was paint glue or some kind of residue left along the entire edge of the door. There was also a white gash. When I talked to Jose on the phone he implied that I had somehow been responsible for the residue, but he agreed to take care of it.
Driver's Side Rear Quarter Panel: There was a hole where a piece of trim was missing. Jose later called and said he found it in the car wash where it had be blown off because it wasn't properly installed.
Passenger Side Rear Quarter Panel: There was a white gash the size of a baseball where it appeared that someone side swiped a pole.
All of these issues happened after I had already gone to pick up the car once before. I could not believe how poorly they technicians are, and how there was no quality control from management before delivering the car to the customer. XX was not there but the manager and owner were. They marked everything and told me that it would be fixed.
Sept. 28th, Third and final time I went to get the car I found the following:
Drivers Side Rear View Mirror: Had a white gash similar to, and at the same height as the one left previously on the passenger side rear quarter panel.
Front Quarter Panel: The weather stripping wasn't on correctly and was collecting water
I pointed these out to XX who accused me of trying to have them fix everything that was wrong with the car. He got confrontational, asked why I was looking at other parts of the car, and told me he wasn't going to fix anything else. Take it or leave it. The manager was standing just inside the office door and saw and heard what was happening.
It was as if I was surrounded in an alley by a bunch of thugs and I was going to have trouble if I didn't walk away. So I did. I took the car as it was and decided to write this review.
The bottom line is that I do not think anyone should be doing business with C&D Auto Body. Both the owner and the manager knew about the issue and it still persisted.
In my opinion, there is no way that any credible shop would have delivered a car to a customer in that condition. Especially after the 2nd and 3rd times.
I've been to about 5 different physical therapists for back and hip issues and Dr. Jones and Dayna are the best I've found. The Airrosti process was exactly what needed to get rid of the deep muscular tension that I developed over the years. I highly recommend going.
Pretty much the only thing in town. There would literally be nothing in Jackson if this place wasn't here. Blackened catfish is effin amazing. Great beer selection too and love the local support.
