Oya Restaurant & Lounge
thanks, oya!our server was just right. i think her name was Yuko. She made good menu suggestions. The food came to the table just at the right time. She was there enough, not too much. It is nice to see a server who treats her support staff kindly and we could see that they like working with her.
We had a very nice table by the fireplace, not as crowded and noisy as most of the restaurant. Sea bass and pork chops were both good. And Oya gave us a little cake with a candle for our anniversary.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for my birthday. GetGood for my birthday. Get the shrimp tempura and spicy crunchy tuna roll. And asparagus.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOya is a Jem!We enjoyed dining at Oya from the moment we entered the restaurant. The decor is striking with marble as the predominant theme. The service was attentive without making us feel rushed. Both our appetizers and entries were beautifully presented and were delicious. The noise level was a little high but not enough to make conversation difficult. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would happily return and recommend Oya!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOya serves a birthday dream dinner!I had dinner at Oya for my birthday. As part of my celebration, I had a different wine with each course. The wines were all amazing and paired perfectly each dish. My absolute favorite wine was the one I had for dessert. It tasted just like chocolate. I was very pleased to see that the restaurant included local wines in their vast selection. If Oya's sommelier decides to offer classes, I would be the first one to sign up. It is very rare for me to dine at a restaurant and truly love every glass of wine. This was a first. The meal itself was excellent and the service was simply delightful. I'll be back again soon!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best scences in DC!I have nothing but great things to say and share about this place. I have been to OYA many times before and I must say, every time the food and service has very good and consistent. They offer up a full and prix fixe menu. The prix fixe menu is a great deal for three course at roughly $36 for dinner. You can't be that!! It was late and I was starving....so I kept it simple and order from the prix fixe menu : Crunchy Spicy Shrimp Roll, Kobe Beef Burger and the Chocolate Molten cake for the dessert. My friend ordered the: Calamari Salad, Atlantic Salmon with Chinese garlic green beans, and carrot cake! "ERRRY THANG".... WAS GOOD!! Get out and enjoy this place...it's all inclusive to make a good night or day happen!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 3rd trip to OyaThis was our 3rd trip to Oya and as before, was not disappointed. We always enjoy the restaurant, great food, service and ambiance.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistently good serviceOya is a neighborhood lunch spot that works well. it is reasonably priced, the wait staff is always exceptional, and the food choices are varied and always consistently appreciated. I have been for dinner once, and enjoyed it greatly, but it is a great business spot for lunch.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVeggie friendly Dress-up GorgeousThis is the fifth time I have been to Oya. The space is breathtaking and is the perfect way to wow friends. The food and the cocktails are creative and delicious. As a vegetarian who loves dressing up and drinking martinis, this place is a wonderful treat. The staff is very friendly.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSay OYA before Verizon Center EventOYA is a great night starter before attending an event at the Verizon Center. Service is energetic, efficient and attentive. Food is fun and each diner can adjust their portion size by ordering more or less. It is nice for couples or a larger group of family or friends. A convenient walk to Verizon Center afterwards.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for a business dinner!Food, Wine, and Decor were AMAZING! FANTASTIC JOB! We will be entertaining clients at your location often.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful. Went there forWonderful. Went there for a birthday dinner with friends and had a wonderful time will be going again.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTrendy spot with great food.Trendy spot with great food. Smaller portions focused on lots of great flavor and variety. If you are looking for golden corral this is not it. Think Vegas vibe lots of white leather and sparkle with an Asian flair. Great for couples date night or break from the norm for lunch. Lots of value on the pre fix menu. Dinner for two less than 100 and lunch for under 50. Hip spot pretty people awesome food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food. Great space.Good food. Great space. My friends and I love this spot for lunch! The atmosphere makes us forget our offices.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded expectationsOur party of 3 thoroughly enjoyed our meals and cocktails. The cocktails represented mixology at its best. We all ordered the prix fixe menu. Two of us had the salmon entree which was perfectly cooked. My husband had the tenderloin where nary a morsel was left. We would definitely consider returning here again. The service was also exceptional for this type of restaurant.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was wonderful and theFood was wonderful and the decor is really smashing! All in all loved it except that it is too loud.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!!I tried this restaurant for the first time and will definite be back. The staff was extremely professional and friendly; excellent service. The food was prepare in a timely manner and everything was prepared to my liking. The restaurant is in a wonderful location near Verizon Center making it easy to grab some tasty food and be within walking distance to catch a concert or show.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fabulous. ExcellentAbsolutely fabulous. Excellent food and the staff was more than happy to accommodate my dietary restrictions while still serving me with an amazing meal. Not once did they make me feel uncomfortable for asking. Really appreciate that.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely delicious. NiceAbsolutely delicious. Nice portions (not like those other fancy places), but not so big that you feel like you're at Cheesecake Factory. Great sushi, and terrific service. Will definitely be going back.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood sushi, not so good appetizersSome of the sushi we ordered were outstanding and others were good, but nothing special. The appetizers (duck rolls and miso steak skewers) were not good. The steak was very overcooked and chewy. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Would come back only for the sushi.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant in a greatGreat restaurant in a great location. Food was delicious and we didn't have to wait long to get it. Recommend the mucho Bonita tuna roll!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, good foodThe food was very good. I ordered the pork chops (big plate) which had lot of meat and not much of the sides. Maybe for a man this is great. My husband ordered a sushi plate, that for the same price as my dish was not too much, so ended up helping me finishing my dish. I think they have a great wine selection. The place looks really nice but it was full and very noise (for all the people talking) and I think the tables are too close to each other. I could hear my neighbor better than my husband. Maybe if I was seated in other table I would have feel more comfortable. I cannot complain about the service, it was very efficient and attentive.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Oya for our anniversary.Went to Oya for our anniversary. Did the price fixe. Great price for delicious food. I got the tenderloin and my wife got sushi. Both were perfect and the portion sizes for a 3 course meal left you satisfied in many ways. We told Oya it was our anniversary and they brought us a mini chocolate cake to celebrate. Very nice touch.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMenjoyable but loudGood cocktails, tasty sushi, interesting wine list, surprisingly chic for DC but really loud.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen you have dietary restrictionsWhen you have dietary restrictions and you're in an unfamiliar city, it's difficult to find a place to have a special dinner with a special someone. Oya met our needs, and went above and beyond when our meal accidentally contained allergens. My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary here, and we couldn't have been happier with our dining choice. We arrived slightly before our reservation and were seated immediately. The meal was excellent, the staff courteous and gracious, and our server was fantastic. The restaurant was a little too dark for my taste...I like see my "cuter half" sitting across from me. The volume and proximity of other diners made it tough to have a conversation. Even with these minor issues, we would return.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely place -- the food isLovely place -- the food is wonderful, decor elegant, ambience great, and noise level low.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI always love a night outI always love a night out at Oya! Not my first time and certainly won't be my last. Charles is a great waiter... ask for him!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe 3-course fixe prix lunchThe 3-course fixe prix lunch is a great value. All three courses that I had were excellent (Asparagus salad, short rib bowl, strawberry-white chocolate ice cream). They do not skimp on the portions for the entree, though, so pace yourself and plan on having leftovers! That asparagus salad is the best thing I've had recently. The homemade ice cream I had was fantastic. I hope to get back soon for happy hour because the cocktail menu was full of things I enjoy. My noise rating is meaningless because we got there before the rush.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOya was amazing! I will definitelyOya was amazing! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to others. The waiters were great at catering to our needs. It was fun, considering the occasion was a Bachelorette Party dinner but also really nice.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExtremely attentive serviceExtremely attentive service on this visit.

Ali at the bar knows how to make customers feel important and outs together outstanding cocktails.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ask for Charles toAlways ask for Charles to be your waiter. Our waitress was a little weird, but Charles checked on us from time-to-time and saved my friend's birthday dinner. I usually request his service, but forgot to and regretted it horribly. The restaurant should give all their waitstaff tips on ensuring their patrons have a great experience EVERY TIME! Food is amazing and the place is beautiful.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAside from a grumpy frontAside from a grumpy front desk guy who was rude when I called to confirm my reservation, the experience was fantastic. I have been several times and will definitely go back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWow, what a find. I had passedWow, what a find. I had passed this place a number of times and was always intrigued by its interior decor. I can tell you that I wasn't disappointed. The decor and atmosphere were better than expected, service was exceptional (we had 2 managers ask us how our experience was), and the food was fantastic. This is a great find for me, and I'll definitely recommend Oya to my friends.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOya was our choice for dinnerOya was our choice for dinner for our first weekend getaway and the ambiance was perfect. We were greeted and promptly seated at our reservation time. The service was attentive and the wine list provided a list of wines that we were unfamiliar with but that did not disappoint. The appetizers were large enough to share and we each ordered our own main course. It was a Saturday night reservation and the noise level was high but not to the extend that we could not enjoy our own conversation. Excellent food and service for a busy saturday night.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything was perfect - theeverything was perfect - the food , ambience and very romantic !3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed my experienceI really enjoyed my experience at OYA.
