And very enjoyable dinner.
Food was interesting and gorgeous looking. Tastes great. it's a lunch treat.
This is a lovely restaurant for a quiet dinner. It is elegant, with a welcoming staff and a menu with good options for vegans and omnivores. We thoroughly enjoyed The Oval Room.
The food was good, but the service could be more friendly and sincere.
We had no complaints about food (excellent) or service (also excellent). But it was much noisier than we were led to believe it would be, even though we were seated at a corner table. By 7:30 on a weeknight, we literally had to "lean in" toward each other to hear, because the overall noise level was so high. At about 9pm, the loud folks began leaving, so by the time we ordered coffee and dessert, it was possible to comfortably continue our conversation.
Wonderful service and food presentation
Had another great dining experience at the Oval Room. Excellent food, wine and good service. Why aren't more people going here?
Great place for a business lunch or dinner. The food was delicious and the ambiance is perfect. Great service as well.
Great service, outstanding food, in a fine dining setting! I will go back!
Great food and beverages. Easy to have a conversation and excellent service.
I've taken two friends to the Oval Room for lunch recently, and they both loved it. So do I!
A delightful restaurant to dine with out-of-town friends. Pre-theatre diner menu is a price performer. Service top notch. Valet service top notch. Highly recommend the Oval Room for all occasions.
Won’t go back
Great meal and they had late reservations thank you.
The staff was friendly and tried their best. The food arrived more cold than warm. They were nicely presented. The portions were not too big, what I appreciated a lot, because I don't like to be too full. The meat was very soft. For me the combinations of the different tastes (sauce to meat/chicken/lobster) didn't fit my personal taste not that much. But I think that this is subjective. I liked the wines the best.
I am always hesitant to give a mediocre review but The Oval Room came so highly recommend that I have to review it. The price fixe menu was boring. The cold amuse trio was pedestrian veggies beet, romaine and carrot prepared ahead of time ... the cream under the beautiful oyster over powered the salty perfection of the oyster. The room temperature sable fish was only saved by the lentils it sat on. Last, the semi frozen cheese cake tasted like Sara Lee.!!! The waiter was fabulous, the whiskey pour generous and the crusty bread delicious but we were very disappointed with the quality of the food.
Loved the preset menu with great choices and wine pairings - beautiful presentation, great service -
Good for meetings cause it is quiet. Expensive but too pricey compared to alternatives and excellent food. Great food presentation.
Overall, a good value for the money.
Outstanding, creative menu; amazing service; one of the city’s true gems!
It was a horrible experience. Our waiter was intoxicated and we had to alert the manager because he was incoherent and couldn't take our order. They then had the bartender become our waiter and service was slow and the order was incorrect once we received it. One of our guests didn't get their dish until the rest of the table was done. We had clients dining with us from out of town and it was extremely embarrassing. They did nothing to compensate for this horrendous dining experience except to comp a dessert. We were forced to be there an additional hour because of their incompetency and inadequacy and there were only two other tables dining that night. I would never recommend dining at the Oval Room again.
This was perfect for a date night. The restaurant week options were great. Adnan our server was knowledgable and very attentive. The rest of the staff was great as well.
Would definitely go back.
It was a most pleasant atmosphere and delicious food.
A gem in Downtown. Wonderful for business lunch. Terrific for a special dinner. Terrific service and high quality food and presentation.
Couldn’t have asked for more
Excellent as always.
We went there for restaurant week and there were quite a few empty tables (due to the government shut down). Our appetizers were both delicious, especially the citrus cured trout. The chicken liver parfait with buttery toasted finger of toast was also excellent. My braised pork cheeks melted in my mouth. Fabulous. We waited quite a while between the first and scone courses and, although we did not complain, they bought us two complimentary glasses of wine. That is very unusual for restaurant week meals. The desserts, a blood orange tart and a chocolate cake were also beautiful and very tasty. Our waiter was ex Ellen's. I would definitely come again.
Restaurant Week. Love to go here for special ladies’s lunches.
Restaurant week lunch was an excellent value. Really enjoyed the skate wing.
Enjoyed Christmas Eve so much we've been back again already - this time we brought our friends. Fabulous service and great Restaurant Week menu. We all had the foie gras parfait - superb! Each of us also enjoyed our main dish just as much - venison, fluke, salmon, and beef as well as desserts - chocolate cake, orange cake and pannacotta. Wines were also delicious. Can't wait to go again!
My party and I had a fabulous pre-New Years meal. My only issue was the up until the evening of the event Lamb (my wife’s favorite), was on the menu. We were disappointed that there had been a change that took Lamb off the menu. In my opinion patrons should have been notified of the change in advance.
Wonderful. A perfect Christmas Eve dining experience!
Exceeded all expectations we could have had for our special Christmas Eve celebration. Impeccable service, delicious meal, comfortable and welcoming setting, low noise level. Highly recommend.
Oval Room is consistently great. Handsome setting, quiet enough so you can talk and hear the conversation, elegant food classically served. Nothing bad to say, and I always enjoy going there. In warm weather, the sidewalk tables are a perfect place for lunch or dinner.
Very good service. Excellent food. The space was open and the room was quiet.
Interesting lunch menu choices, good portion sizes. Salad was good but not to the same stellar standard as in the past. Service as usual was superb.
They do a very nice job. The staff is attentive and anxious to care of your needs. Parking has been found easily both times I've been there. The food is very good. Not too much, nor too little. It is always comfortable and not as crowded as some of the other places deeper in town. It's a go-to for me.
I went here for a working lunch. The food was amazing and the restaurant was quite which was perfect. My only complaint was our waiter. He just was not friendly. He did a fine job, but wasn’t engaging and didn’t even smile until he dropped off the check. Rude.
We went to The Oval Room for Thanksgiving dinner. We had to wait for a bit when we got there even though we had a reservation. The internet advertised the meal being between $31.00 - 50.00 per person however in reality it was $60.00 per person. With dinner and drinks our ticket was over $260.00! My daughter and husband were both happy with their meal while mine was mediocre at best. I wouldn’t go there again but it will be fun to talk about the experience for sure!
I gave the 5 stars because it is a very fine restaurant. The turkey was moist and tender. The gravy -savory. Cranberries - Devine. However 4.5 would be appropriate for the temperature of the food - Luke warm. For a classy restaurant the choice of dinner plate was odd. An oval. (nothing to do with its name) the platter would have been more appropriate for a diner. Granted there were lots of portions on the platter, but it was a turn off. In addition food is 90% visual. In my case the root vegetables were haphazardly strewn about the platter along with a cacophony of potatoes, stuffing, turkey, and cranberries. The wait staff was spread thin in my section which left unwanted dishes and giblets lingering long past their due. I ordered a cappuccino HOT. It came like warm and was send back. I know it was Thanksgiving with lots of diners. However this restaurant has been in business a long time and by now have holidays down to a precise science.
Went here for Thanksgiving $60 3-course meal.
Right away can tell they pay more attention to older richer people, because our service was slow and confusing. It wasn't even crowded. Messing up what we want and not caring. The food was so so, the price and size is just fancy wannabe. We left hungry and disappointed.
