Seafood

Exposed wood and concrete interiors of ROW DTLA’s historic produce terminal is the ideal setting for Rappahannock Oyster Bar’s first West Coast location. Nestled in LA’s Warehouse District, just blocks from the Arts District and Little Tokyo, ROW DTLA offers a West Coast spin on our East Coast heritage. With an emphasis on sustainability, locally sourced, ethically fished, and responsibly farmed ingredients, the menu draws inspiration from the people of L.A. and the bounty of fresh produce, fish, and meat sourced in Southern California.

Server was attentive and pleasant but later he got busier and it was difficult to get his attention. Was not aware menu had changed. Online up to the day, menu was showing salmon and trout as an entree. They are no longer on the menu. I wish entrees included at least one side dish. I ordered the grilled chicken club sandwich and it does include a side. It should. I’ve been to restaurant a few times now, think it’s time to take a break. Restaurant needs to update better water glasses, nicer cutlery and clean metal tables better or cover them with tablecloths. They table diagonal to where I was sitting looked dirty and looked like it was stained with grime. It would be nice to add some new dishes. Given the food is pricey, the above mentions would better justify the prices. Thank you.

The ambiance is wonderful and if you like to people watch then this is definitely the place to go. The food was great and the drinks were tasty and very refreshing, I had a beverage that consisted of tequila with the orange slice covered in tahini and It was actually delicious. I highly recommend this establishment as it was my first time visiting and I'll definitely be returning.

They usually carry 1 pacific coast and one west coast. Their michelada is like no other. Something about the mix. I am not a beer person but trust when I say their Michel a mix is amazing. Overall, great oyster selection, great staff and knowledgeable too.

I personally had the lobster roll and it did not have much seasoning/taste as expected. As far as the service, my waiter was ver passive aggressive and acted very annoyed to any little request we had. This started from when we ordered, till we left. Not sure how the other waiters were, but all I can speak on is my own personal experience.

We enjoyed the shrimp, lobster quesadilla and the taste combination from these ingredients was exceptional . The salad was a nice complement. The cab wine was just ok. The cost for two people for these items was very reasonable We are going back and try the lobster rolls

My lobster roll for $28 was about 4 bites of food with no sides served with it. Interesting beer list but again pricey. Hard to find with google maps as the street is now closed off. I like to eat outside but probably won't come back to this place.
