    The service was exemplary and the waitstaff were very attentive. We were very impressed by the food, especially the sides like the grilled watermelon salad, and grilled squash. The fish sliders were great too. Jennifer and Naod were joy to be around - will go back again when we are back at DC.

    Absolutely amazing tasting set menu. Really recommend the Marlyland Blue Crab curry and the Beef Bulgogi, but you won’t go wrong with any choices you make. Only in DC for three nights, and dined here twice.

    First timers and we enjoyed everything . Better come with some coins but it was all worth it . Only negative would be the drinks . For $23 all ice no liquor so we didn’t even bother to order another . Great place and we will be coming back .

    I've been to this place 3x. The first time was a few years ago, the food was good, the ambiance was good, the price was reasonable. I came back 2x in 2023 and the ambiance and food was even better than the first time. My out of town guest were very impressed with the restaurant overall. However, it was just unreasonably pricey now. The DC service fee thingy has to go.

Discover Southwest Waterfront

The Southwest Waterfront of the Washington Channel from Fisherman's Wharf to Fort McNair is a prime location offering restaurants and nightly live entertainment. The waterfront is evolving into 3 million square feet of residences, offices, restaurants, and retail stores. The Fish Market Eatery, established in 1805, serves freshly caught blue crabs and other seafood, vegetables, and desserts with a "monumental view" of our nation's capitol. Restaurants and grills on the Channel evolved from family-owned multimillion dollar seafood packers. You're also surrounded by international cuisine. French, Indian, and Italian cafes and bistros bake bread and cut homemade pasta on their premises for authentic old world flavor. Wines of the world compliment your entrée and your choice of dessert.
