Dining here is always a lovely experience. Very civilized, inventive menu and delicious.
Absolutely fabulous - food, service, and ambiance.
My wife and I had a lunch date to enjoy the prize fix Provençal meal. Everything was wonderful.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Fabulous place
Very interesting menu
Excellent service, delicious food in a chic environment near the White House. The sommelier, Eamon, was very knowledgeable and suggested a wonderful wine.
Reasonable option downtown. Food was so-so and all dishes plated similar with two pieces of meat with sauce poured on top - vegetarian option was plated to feel hearty like meat but was tasteless. Staff handled very professionally when I changed my dish without question. Cocktails were outstanding. Room was elegant and comfortable. I will try again based on service.
Honestly, the Oval Room was probably the best meal that I ate in the entire city of Washington DC. I even ate at a one Michelin Star DC restaurant and the food there was good, but not as good as it was in the Oval Room! I also liked how quiet the Oval Room was, since so many hip/trendy restaurants tend to drum up noise levels, but that's usually not for me...especially when I just want to eat a nice formal dinner and relax. Furthermore, the overall ambiance and decor of the Oval Room was very nice and quite tasteful. Thank you for the fantastic meal! PS: If you work for the Michelin Guide, please give the Oval Room a Michelin Star, because they deserve it!
After graduation dinner.
very good food but we were alone for dinner at 20.30h.
refined ambiance and cuisine; food well presented; quantity of appetizers a bit scarce;
Excellent restaurant. The food is full of wonderful flavors and the presentation is truly lovely. The staff are all professional and exceptionally nice and seek to make the meal memorable.
Attentive server and beautiful food that tasted as good as it looked. There was a large party on the other side of the restaurant, yet our side was quiet and relaxing. We will definitely return.
Oval Room is the perfect place for a quiet business meal where you can have a private conversation at a civilized volume and will always be assured of "white glove" service and excellent food. Highly recommend.
Had a very nice Mother’s Day/Birthday celebration. The set meal was delicious! Beautiful presentation. The wine pairing was a little disappointing. The selections were perfect but the pour was quite stingy. Otherwise would highly recommend!
We had such a wonderful evening for Mother’s Day dinner. The staff and service was absolutely kind, patient, welcoming and lovely to us. The chef was willing to tweak the entree’s a bit to fit the kid’s taste but the kids had octopus, chicken liver and tried duck and loved everything. They added soda water to the juice to give it some fizz and went above and beyond in the accommodation for us. Our waiter, Kouhyar was very knowledgeable in his drink and wine pairings. Everything tasted good, the lighting was amazing, they even found huge trash bags to cover the kids since it was raining. Thank you all for a truly wonderf dining experience. My Mother had a wonderful dinner and I got everything that I wanted for her evening.
My compliments to the chef! The food was very delicious. It is amazing the unique dishes the chef prepares. Everything I ate was perfect. The waiter was wonderful, too. Very friendly, personable, and attentive. Wonderful, wonderful experience!
The food is delicious and the chef has a creative and intelligent approach to combining flavors. Service is excellent and attentive without being intrusive. The decor is attractive and soothing, while the noise level is very low and the tables are well spaced so that conversation is easy.
Thank you for your hospitable treatment of road weary travelers. Our 10 year old granddaughter felt like a real princess :)
Oval Room always delivers a first class experience in every way. We were please Adnan was our server - he handles everything just right and is always warm and friendly.
Excellent, as it is every time.
The Oval Room is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent and the service is of the highest quality. One is made to feel as if the restaurant appreciates your business. We highly recommend it.
The octopus was perfect. Very tender and flavorful

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.
