Poor service and pedestrian food. Our waiter was barely present, failing to take our order, failing to get our order right, failing to check on us, and being generally absent. We couldn’t even get him to bring our bill. The tilapia (wrong dish brought first) was burnt and the steak tasted odd, like it had been in the refrigerator for one too many days. Side dishes were tiny, as was the paltry dinner salad (for $10). Will not return, but I think most patrons don’t know the difference and just show up out of habit. Fail.

First time there and it was in error but we loved it. The Tempura vegetable straws, the lemongrass sauces, the dry rose wine that was suggested by our waitperson were all excellent.
We will definitely return. Quiet ambiance, intimate and elegant.

My friend and I have eaten here before, and we enjoyed it as much this time as well. The service, from the friendly greeting by Ida to the thoughtful service by our waiter, was top notch. I had the tenderloin and she had a beautiful and tasty salad. I highly recommend Oakville Grille for occasions important - and not!

Maybe it was an off night. It seemed a bit tired and understaffed, with indifferent crab cakes and a pretty good seafood risotto. A fair number of jolly diners, though, so it could be better on another night.

The dinner was terrific, my rockfish was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was on hand but not obtrusive. We will return and I would recommend it to anyone. There were many menu choices, including vegetarian meals. All in all an excellent dinner with our 2 best friends.

We were celebrating a slightly delayed Valentine's date on a Saturday night, and wanted to be in the Bethesda/Potomac/Rockville area. We decided to take a chance on Oakville Grill based on its location and reviews: we were VERY happy with our choice. We had the arugula and pear salad and the spicy tomato soup followed by the halibut special and the steak with blue cheese accompanied by delectable wines. For dessert, we happily indulged in key lime pie and chocolate mousse. All the dishes were absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked. The service was superb--quiet, discreet, and knowledgeable--exactly what we wanted! We were seated in the front near the large window looking out on a snowy evening and it was really lovely and romantic. Thank you OG for a restaurant that is not only has delicious offerings but also is inviting to quiet adult conversation--we will definitely be back!

Always a pleasure. Welcoming, excellent food and a menu with good variety and balance among fish, pastas and meat. The pizza appetizer is terrific as well as the crusted fish preparations. The hanger steak is also a fine addition to the menu.

We waited for 2 hours to get our entree. Ordered surf an turf which was suppose to be a filet and 6 oz lobster tail. Several couples came in after us and finished eating there meals before we got ours. In fact several of the meals served were the filet and lobster. After asking where our food was several times they brought us a substitute of a vey small filet and shrimp instead of lobster although others after us got exactly what we ordered. Also we were never told they ran out of lobster but instead just showed up with the shrimp like that was what we ordered. I gave the food a 3 only because it would have been unfair to rate it because we never got to eat it. They also ran out of the dessert we ordered but with the same circumstances with people arriving after us getting exactly what we ordered. And when I say people after us I am talking 20 - 30 minutes later. This was suppose to be a romantic Valentine’s meal but turned out to be a disaster in so many ways. When I asked for a manager it took at least 20 minutes for anyone to speak with me. I can understand there may have been issues and it was a very busy night but the way things were handled throughout the night were completely unacceptable. I had chosen this restaurant because of the positive reviews and believe the food was probably very good from what I heard; it is unfortunate that our experience was so poor because at this point I could not recommend this place. Because of how late it was and the fact they did not provide us what we even ordered we ended up taking the meal to go. I have never expected anything special when not completely happy with service or meal but in this case they did comp the meals we took home.

Have been here many times and it's consistently good, but our last visit everything was a notch up, just impeccable. In particular, highly recommend the crab cakes - it was our first time ordering them, and they were first rate (and we're fussy about crab cakes). We can count on the service being attentive and the bread, salad, and main courses being well prepared , beautifully presented, and utterly delicious.

This was a birthday dinner for my husband. He loves Oakville Grill’s black and blue steak, which he has had many times. This time he was disappointed because they have changed the French fries they serve with this dish. They are battered fries, and they should be more frites like ( IMO). The Lemongrass shrimp was very good. The tempura veggies were very well done.

Oakville Grille and Wine Bar provides a consistently excellent eating experience. The food not only tastes amazing, but it is presented in an enticing manner. The White Pizza w/ Mushrooms appetizer is superb, as were the vegetable dumplings. The scallops, crab cakes and pistachio encrusted rockfish were amazing. We can't wait to go back.
