    I was pulled in by the name and the location on King St. I made Friday reservations at 7pm and was the only person in, which was nice but also an indicator. It is the Hotel restaurant, adjacent to the Seagars Bar in Hilton. Good for appetizers and glass of wine, but would not call it epicurean delight.

    A colleague and I were staying at the Hilton Old Town since the weather was bad, we decided to eat here. The restaurant is re-branding and the weather was so bad, so probably explains why the place didn't have a lot of customers. We ordered the Fillet and Frites and it was really good. The steak was cooked exactly as requested, very tended and great flavor. The fries had cilantro oil on them was very tasty and grilled watercress. It was a really nice meal and I'll go back just for that.

    Dined here with two girlfriends on a Sunday night. It's inside the Alexandria Hilton, right near the King Street Metro. It was like many hotel restaurants, above average food, okay service, and I probably won't go back. We tried several items and shared; they were all pretty good: seared scallops with sriracha, braised short rib ravioli, spinach salad with oranges and blackberries, potato and leek soup, tomato soup, open faced grilled cheese with mushrooms, and the chicken chopsticks. The service wasn't very attentive, especially considering there were two other tables with people in the entire restaurant. This used to be Seager's restaurant and bar, they are rebranding and as of our visit, hadn't updated the signage.

    I can't say I was over whelmed. The food was just ok for the most part. We both chose the French Chicken dinner. I think both of us felt the chicken was bland and required salt and pepper to pick it up a little. Also the mini zucchini didn't have much flavor. I did enjoy the roasted corn as well as the cucumber and tomato salad. The service was a little slow even though the restaurant was not full at the time.

    Our evening at Seagar's was pleasant enough, but the food was disappointing. Salt appears to have been the prime ingredient for our meals. So much so that we couldn't eat the entrees. Also, it may have just been an off night, but we were literally the only diners in the restaurant for much of the evening. That made us feel out of place and awkward, though I have to say the waiter was sensitive to our predicament and refrained from hovering over us all night.

    Old Town Alexandria weekend.....nice location, quiet setting. Found the menu to be very limited, and the restaurant nearly empty on a Saturday evening. Had been here in the past, and the menu was much more inviting. The Baby Back Ribs were not Baby Back Ribs and were overcooked, dry and chewy, but the presentation was nice. Everyone else were pleased with their dinners, one of which was a double order of the Scallops since a entrée was not offered. Service was fantastic, can't say enough good things about our server. Drinks from the bar were adequate, but over priced ($24 for a double shot of Grey Goose Vodka......and it was barely 2 shots!) Wine pricing was reasonable. Not sure if it is work a return visit.

    Stopped in for dinner on the last night of a week-long business trip. Red pepper-gouda soup was excellent as was the sea bass special. Fish was perfectly cooked as was the accompanying copious mélange of vegetables. No dessert was necessary as I sopped up the herb butter sauce with the bread provided. They could use a few more wines by the glass. Service was very good.

  • Breakfast and 9 Party Dinner

    Dined on 8/23/2013
    Seagars at the Old Town Alexandria performed superbly for our dinner meeting of nine (9) in the private dining room. They were even kind enough to open slightly early and have share plates/wine waiting on the group so we could keep to a tight schedule. While the cellar and beef quality at this location is less impressive than that found at Seagars Sandestin, those small "knocks" were more than overcome by the timely and courteous services. Food quality (ordered from menu) for everybody in the party of nine was reported as good to excellent. The service was impeccable. My wife and I enjoyed al la carte breakfast twice in Seagars during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed both. Again, the friendly, professional service was impressive.

    We had been here before for special occasion brunch(s). The items listed on the menu at open table such as the crab legs were not on the brunch this time. I questioned the manager about this and she just said that it was an outdated menu and she thought she had gone on-line to "hide" it. I told her that it was visible when I booked the reservation. She did not offer to do anything to make up for the confusion. I was very disappointed since we had gone there many times before. I do not know if I would go again.

    property has changed hands--is no longer Seagar's although signage the same. Service was bad when present, but basically we were ignored except when orders taken and served. Nothing that I would call "service." Food was mediocre with hotel prices ,prices would be okay if for example the seared chicken in the seared chicken salad was hot or even warm, tasted leftover. Would I ever return, much less bring a client for lunch? absolutely NOT.

    Dined on 2/14/2013
    My family went there for Valentine's Day dinner and was disappointed with the reception, service, and food. The food was too salty. The crabcakes had too much filler and too salty. I was thinking since the crabcakes were the most expensive item on the menu, that they would be good and all crabemeat, but I was wrong. The Pot Roast was salty and just stringy pieces of meat mix with mashed potatoes, gravy, and carrots, the filet mignon was burnt. The restaraunt itself was very nice and if the food was better , I would go back.

    Food was just okay. The crab cake had too much filler. The bacon brussel sprouts were loaded with garlic and uneatable. However, the asparagus was delicious and the ribeye was cooked medium-rare as ordered and very flavorful. Red wine - a Louis M. Martini Cab Sauv, was very good and reasonably priced. The wait service was helpful, friendly and responsive, despite appearing to be a bit inexperienced.

    We waited about 15 minutes for someone to come to the hostess stand to seat us and we almost left. It ended up being one of two wait staff that were working in the dining area and she didn't apologize or really say much of anything. The place was virtually empty at 6pm on a Friday night (should have been our second clue). The food was just o.k. and we had a really hard time ordering cocktails as the waitress did not know what a vodka tonic or cosmo was. I wouldn't go back.

    We showed up on time and the hostess was not the least interested in seeing us. We explained we had reservations and she seated us without even trying to build rapore with us. She was either bothered about her personal life or she did not want to deal with anyone. The waiter was pleasant enough and did a fine job. But we were notified a week after dining at Seagar's that Open Table did not show us as having kept the reservation. I explained we had dined there and I faxed the receipt to the customer dispute section and was awarded the dining points after all. If the hostess was not the slightest bit excited to see us AND we were not even shown as having dined there then I wonder how inattentive to detail the restaurant is on a whole.

    Mother's Day Brunch was our first dining experience at Seagar's. Our party of four, along with our 18-month-old granddaughter found the brunch selection to be fresh and bountiful, easily surpassing the published menu. The restaurant staff were attentive and understanding of the needs of a party that included a toddler Providing long-stemmed roses to the mothers was a nice touch. Free parking is such a rarity in this vicinity. We will certainly return to this restaurant for future special events.

    We visited Seagars for their Easter Brunch and for the most part we were pleased. The French Toast, Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon and the kids' items were great. The mimosas were OUTSTANDING. We were disappointed with the waffles, however. The waffles were hard and did not hold up well on the buffet. Waffles is one item that should always be made fresh. We understand that the restaurant was trying to accomodate a large Easter crowd but it may have been better not to offer waffles if they were not going to be fresh. Other than that, the restaurant was enjoyable.

    My wife and I have been at Seagar's several times and every time trying to give them the benefit of the doubt that our previous bad experiences were just flukes ~ but this time proved that it has a systemic problem! First of all, when we got there at 6:30 on a Saturday evening, there was hardly anyone there (which should say something in and of itself), and then my wife's filet mignon was so overcooked that she had to ask for another one to be cooked. My osso buco sauce was very salty and peppery but I endured it. The waiter was very friendly and apologetic but even after we told him it was our 25th wedding anniversary, he never once said anything about it ~ O well, that's the last time they'd see us!
