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
Great food and service, every time!
The food is very correctly plated with the right temperature.Any dish is worth trying atleast once.
Nice restaurant, untypical more European Style. Nice service, interesting and unusual wines. Food was good, enjoyed tasting menu. The fist course was a little disappointing but the rest was good

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.
A nice location only a few blocks from the White House. Nice cocktails and some inventive dishes. Good if you want to be pleasantly surprised by the food but only a little bit. Every dish is prepared to perfection
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.
