It was great. Only issue was that the kitchen closed really early and we couldn’t order more food after 8 or so.

Lovely outdoor dining spot. Loved the tower--a small is perfect for for two to share. The watermelon salad was refreshing for a summer evening and the lobster roll was spot on.

We were excited to visit Rappahanock Oyster Bar, but it was a disappointment. Admittedly, we’re foodies with a high bar. Only having two types of oysters at an oyster bar was a surprise. We tried both and they were fine. The beet salad we tried had an off taste. The pomegranate seeds were bad. They remade the salad. Still a funny taste. The burratta was bad, too. The service throughout was good and they comped the salad but we won’t be going back.

Really nice place in the center of The Row in DTLA. Fantastic oysters and scallops. The food has a Latin fusion to it that works with some items and not so much with others but overall very good food and experience.

We had a great time since we are not in a hurry. They were clearly slammed with dining guests and a small crew. They did their very best and we completely enjoyed our food

Very sweet alcoholic drinks. Poorly made Bloody Mary. Had seafood tower. Shrimp terrible, Hamachi not good. Scallops were truly amazing and the oysters were really nice. The wait staff was very nice. I'd return but stick to the oysters, scallops, beers, and the hamburger looked amazing.

The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I went on a Sunday evening and it wasn't too busy. We ordered the ceviche, lobster/shrimp quesadilla, lobster mac and cheese. Every plate was good. The setting is casual.

I don’t know if they’re short staffed always or this was just a particular day, but the wait staff did not know the menu, they returned every 25 minutes or so. Never refilled or even offered to refill water. About 4 different people came to our table and all of them were pretty equally unhelpful. The food was good, but not worth it for that service.

We had worst restaurant experience ever!!

We ordered 6 dishes and 1 dish was still not came..
So I asked waitress then Asian guy and other waitress came to table ( no greetings or introduce himself and immediately he had really nasty look on us., like accusing look)
We told him we didn’t get oyster taco. Then waitress said I gave it to you, we were really shocked.. we said no.. then
My husband got upset because insults.
He call us lier and told us to leave.

Unbelievable.. still in shock how we were treated like this.
We go to top expensive restaurants all the time and these type of behavior at restaurants is not acceptable.

Waitress who lied and manager who has no manner or skills to talk to customers.

Greeted by very friendly staff and we were seated right away. Service, food and atmosphere are all outstanding. The food is presented beautifully and most importantly, everything was tasty and fresh. The drinks were also delicious…i had a Michi lada and was served the extra in a smaller glass with my choice of beer. Can’t wait to return to order more items that looked delicious!

Met up with a friend here for the first time since the pandemic. We were really looking forward to catching up over some oysters and wine, which we did. However, the service was so poor it was distracting from our catch up as we had to focus on getting the waiter's attention so we could finish ordering and also so we could get our food. I would say this was possibly because they were short-staffed and having a hard time hiring, which is such an issue right now BUT everyone around was being served in a much more normal timely manner so it felt like we'd been forgotten. All the food was delicious (oysters, ceviche, lobster roll, and watermelon and cucumber salad). Their homegrown east coast river oysters were super mild so I preferred their home grown east coast ocean oysters and their west coast offering. The ceviche is SPICY. All in all I would go back hoping for better service to have more of their oysters and try some other menu items.
