    Lately I go out and think "I could've made this better myself." Not so at The Majestic. My cooking is never this good! A small menu where everything is made perfectly!! Friendly, casual vibe didn't scare away my *well-mannered* teenagers. Portions were just right. Good cocktails. We all loved it!

    The squash blossoms as well as the stuffed mushroom hors d'oeuvre were fabulous. The 4 of us dining together enjoyed each of our entrees: salmon, lasagna, penne vodka with shrimp and one other dish, the name of which I do not remember but think our friend had risotto with it. Michael, our waiter, (no relationship to the owner) was great. He made excellent suggestions when we had a question and quite simply was professional and fun to have wait on us. This was our second time dining here and we brought this couple as they had not been here before. They will definitely return and probably we will be with them!!! This is one of our favorite restaurants now.

    Beautiful restaurant at a charming location in old town Alexandria. Friendly and attentive staff and very nice creole/cajun influenced menu (which somehow I didn't realize before coming). We'll definitely be back.

    We went for our anniversary and was very pleased with 1799. The staff was great and the food was very tasty. Both of us got the Bone-in Prime Rib. My husband added the burgundy mushrooms and I got the cream spinach. The burgundy mushrooms weren't cooked with much wine to give them the color burgundy mushrooms are known for but they were still very good. The cream spinach was yummy as well as the asparagus that comes with the meal. To top it all off, the Creme Brulee Cheesecake was amazing!

    Just a great place to do brunch! We did the family style brunch which was great even though there were only 2 of us, portions were designed for parties of all sizes. Great food, service, and environment!
