Summary: Located on Scott Circle in the Marriott Courtyard Embassy Row, Nage claims to offer “Food Excellence in a Casual Eatery Environment”. Closest Metro is Dupont Circle.

At first impression, the atmosphere was a little cold and small, despite the warm red colors of d├ęcor. Maybe it was due to the fact that the place was in a hotel and pretty empty due to the holidays, but our booth seat was alright. The wait staff were friendly and seemed to not mind our lingering since it was a cold and slow night ofr them. The menu was a mix of French and Eurasian flair, with specials written on a chalk board by the door. The appetizers were a little disappointing, but the entrees were a great satisfying portion and very flavorful. I really enjoyed my swordfish – one of best I’ve ever had. We were too full to enjoy dessert, but the choices looked intriguing Undecided if I would hike back to dine here again, but I would recommend it for those in the area.
