I made a reservation for September 16 for a pre-theater dinner (7:30). This was confirmed by e-mail. When we got there the reservation was closed for a private party. We had to scramble to find a restaurant and were lucky enough to get the last table at Ulah. The last thing you need is to scramble around to find a restaurant in an area you don't know. Be warned! No one was at the door to tell us it was closed. A guest took pity on us.

I recently hosted an event there, and the service and staff are absolutely terrible. I put down a deposit for the event and not only did our event start 30 minutes late, but the event planner who was our contact double-booked us and another group into the same space (the upstairs lounge)! Needless to say that there was not enough space for both groups. The air conditioning wasn't working properly, the dj, which they were supposed to provide as stated in our contract, showed up 45 minutes late for the event, there weren't enough bartenders on staff to serve our group properly, and only then did they offer to extend our event for an extra 30 minutes. So, that should be the end of it... it wasn't! Somewhere over the course of the evening, they decided to close down our event an hour before it was supposed to end after we had been gracious enough to accept and look past their scheduling error, as well as all of the other problems! So, not only did we not get our extra half-hour, we didn't even get one of the three hours that we had PAID for!!! To top it off some of the bartenders were extremely rude to some of my guests, almost to the point of verbal abuse. I have never in my life seen bartenders behave in such an inappropriate manner. The event planner was totally incompetent and did absolutely nothing to resolve the situation. We were also supposed to have a champagne toast at midnight... it never happened! I would be shocked if this restaurant/bar lasts much longer under its current ownership.

I visited this restaurant with my parents the Friday they opened. Everything was top notch. The food was excellent, the staff was attentive, and the ambience was great. I can see this being a place where I can have a business dinner, cocktails with girlfriends, or on date night with my husband. There is a lounge upstairs that is open on the weekends that I plan to visit soon. But I will definitely be back for the Sea Bass. It was probably the most flavorful fish I have ever had. We started with the salmon cakes and grilled calamari, both excellent. My father had the Steak and it was prepared to perfection. This restaurant is a great addition to U Street!
