Shrimp and wood fire grill fish was very good. Wish they had more white fish options...like halibut, rockfish, or snapper.

Great Seafood, Reasonable Price
This is a neighborhood gem. Very convenient location (Tysons II) for a nice seafood meal at reasonable price.

We had reserved for 8, and we ended up with 4, The server was so flexible and met our every need. She was outstanding. Our only complaint was that we did not care for the mousse. Otherwise, we had a great retirement lunch for a team member. Thanks much.

Good for gluten free diners
Excellent gluten free menu and GF rolls. Attentive to gluten allergies.

Our server was Hamall (sp?). He was very professional and attentive, and we had great service.

Everything about the dining
Everything about the dining experience was excellent including our waitress whose name I do not recall. It was not as pricey as I thought it would be for dinner. That was a pleasant surprise. I will be sure to return. Thanks. cat

When You Want Great Seafood . . .
Great food as usual. Best cream of crab soup around and the Caesar salad with lobster is a fantastic summer dish (although it's always on the menu).

Our server and the General Manager made us feel welcome and appreciated. I watched the GM "work" the restaurant to ensure that everything was perfect for all her guests. She clearly loves her work and I believe this positive attitude is picked up by the rest of the staff and is reflected in their work. The food was tasty too!

Special guest was impressed
We had a friend in from New York, he was very impressed!

Best Service We Have Had In a Long
Service was absolutely amazing. Everybody on the staff was very attentive. My girlfriend wasn't a big fan of her dinner choice so the manager Lloyd was amazing and volunteered to get her a second portion of the appetizer she liked. In addition, he took the original dinner choice off the bill and ensured we liked our meal. Food was great as well but the service sold us by far. Recommend to everyone and we will be sure to be back.

Saturday Night Live
The experience was good from beginning to end. Our reservation was honored. We had a well-located round table for the six of us. The Staff were welcoming and attentive, helping to make this a special occasion. The food was good. and plentiful. I hope to go back soon.

The service was impeccable. Everyone from the hostess to the manager were extremely attentive and kind. The clam chowder was very tasty and not too salty as is usually the case at other places. The wait staff was knowledgable about the oysters and the rest of the menu. The ambience was not at all noisy but not so quiet that you are compelled to whisper. My dining experience here was excellent and I almost forgot that I was in a mall. I left dinner extremely impressed.

Highest quality seafood well prepared. Liked the chocolate chip cookie box for dessert too

Warm to hot
Food served luke warm. When mentioned to staff, food replaced with piping hot food and all was delicious.

Great Crabcakes & Chowder
One of my favorite Seafood Restaurants for food quality. This restaurant leaves a little to be desired for ambience

The service was outstanding
The service was outstanding and the food was very good. The cream of crab soup was delicious. I wasn't overly impressed with the wood grilled salmon, but my husband had the Fisherman's Platter and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Boston Cream dessert was amazing --save room!
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I truly enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was prepared to order and the suggestions from the waitress was appreciated.
I would recommend this Restaurant to anyone wanting a great atmosphere and good food.

Great food and service
My co-worker and I went for lunch during their Restaurant Week. I ordered Chilled Gazpacho, Wedge Salad with Grilled Shrimp, and Strawberry Shortcake from their $20.13 lunch prix fixe menu. All food were delicious and portions were good. Server was very courteous and efficient. Manager called me by my name (learned my name from OpenTable reservation), which I was impressed and felt a personal touch. There is a survey on the receipt which you can complete online and receive $10 off next visit. I definitely recommend dining in this restaurant.

Amazing Place for Restaurant Week
I went there for restaurant week with friends. We met up before our reservations to do happy hour. I had a strawberry margarita. It was refreshing. The bar atmosphere was pretty good although there was a lag before the bartender took my order. Once we sat down for dinner, our waiter came to us automatically. He took our drink orders and gave us a review of the menu. He knew a lot about the menu. I ordered a restaurant week meal: the salad, salmon with broccoli, and the strawberry shortcake.Before the meal came out, one of the managers brought out a sample appetizer that the chef was trying out. The cauliflower tempura was delicious!! I really enjoyed my dining experience and plan to go back.

A nice location for a family lunch
We had a couple of challenges in our group with some allergies and a food preference and both were handled well by the staff. The food was tasty and a very good value. There were ample choices on the menu to make it a pleasant dining experience for the varied tastes in our group as well. We were here for Restaurant Week. And we will definitely be back :)
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
My entree included an ingredient that was not mentioned on its description. I do not care for this ingredient and find the taste to be overpowering. The staff was especially gracious to me accomodating my request to remove the sauce. I am sure if I asked for another entree they would have agreed to that as well. Both our server and another staff person--perhaps one of the managers did all they could to make sure this issue was resolved and that we had a great dining experience.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as usual...
Had a wonderful meal with my family visiting from out of town. Everyone loved their meals and the service was excellent.

It seems as though the hosts
It seems as though the hosts at Open Table restaurants are not that interested in knowing that the reservation was made through Open Table especially when the restaurant is not busy or tables are obviously available upon your arrival. Considering my experience last time at Tower Oaks, I was persistent in letting the host know that my reservation was made through Open Table.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is very good (very fresh fish) and the service is outstanding.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't presently remember the name of our waitress, but she had an unusual name that began with a "B." In any event, she was very attentive and professional. Thanks for another great dining experience!

Great place for seafood lover
Great seafood dishes and a good setting for lunch/dinner. Loved the salads with grilled seafood.

Great for birthdays and other
Great for birthdays and other celebrations. Get a table far from the kitchen. The indoor patio is nice.

One of the best places in metro DC for New England style seafood.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Three of us dined. The scrod, the rainbow trout, and the wood grill assortment were all excellent. Service was excellent as well. May not choose the jasmine rice next time, though. Everything else was great!

Choosy about sea food
Growing up by the shore I like the taste of fish so I am always looking for the freshest fish simply prepared. If the fish is good it doesn't need a lot of cheese or creamy sauces to make it tasty. I chose the wood grilled rainbow trout . Excellent. I convinced my spouse to eat the skin which was crispy and set off the delicate flesh nicely. House sides; seaweed salad and faro with cherries were unusual and complemented the trout nicely. I also indulged in oysters on the half shell as a starter. Massachusetts oysters were as described succulent and slightly briny. Delicious! Wanting to indulge in dessert later we asked for apple pie to go. Delighted to find pie, a yummy apple cider sauce and ice cream packed in separate containers.

Wonderful Sunday lunch
Our service was great and our waitress was pleasant and professional. We didn't have to ask for anything. The manger Mark stopped by to hello and welcome us, a nice touch. All of us had a nice time and will return.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM

Went back again last night. Another outstanding meal

We dine here fairly often, as the food is consistently good, the servers are friendly and helpful and there is always something new to try. The wine list is updated frequently and is very good.

great for a business lunch.
great for a business lunch. service was AWESOME! Thanks Haleem W.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Right from the moment we walked in the atmosphere was welcoming. We ordered the crab dip and wanted different chips, they made the chips fresh and brought them out promptly. My lobster and filet came and were wonderful as were my boyfriends stuffed shrimp and filet. The waitress was friendly and the manager came over and dropped off two stuffed mushrooms for us to try, she was really lovely and even promptly removed my lobster friend and his staring eyes. All in all a great experience with great food and we walked away feeling the dinner was totally worth the money. Happy Friday Night indeed.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was fun and the food was delicious! We especially enjoyed the wood grilled shrimp and scallops!

We were all happy with our meals! I love the sides (farro salad, seafood salad)- unusual but tasty and healthy.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful oysters... fresh and a true variety... great dipping sauce for the oysters as well. Otherwise menu is limited and unimaginative (oh except two other items - the pumpkin cheesecake was oh so delicious and the tuna appetizer was incredible).
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The meals here are alway excellent and it's nice to have familiar waitstaff who do a great job. We had the baked scrod and the red snapper special -- both very, very good.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great dinner and service
We started the evening with a bottle of wine. The manager brought it over herself along with a small polenta and jalapeno taster to get us started. My Tuna steak and the dining partner's salmon were both well grilled to order (Med rare for me Med. well for my dining partner). The root vegetable premium side was well worth the extra $1.50.

We had reservations for 18 persons and when we arrived out table was ready.
The servers were very good and the food was excellent. However the kitchen was very slow and it took forever to get our food. It was well worth the wait.

Very nice staff and great food. Kale side dish was fantastic.
12/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great meal
Our server was Megan (sp?), and the main reason why she was so effective was that Mike ratted me out to her so she knew everything in advance!! Still, the food was very good (we knew it would be), and the service was EXCELLENT!!
