Beautiful 20 seat marble top bar with two fire places located behind you that make you feel as cozy as being in your own home. Trying our fresh daily oyster selection is a must even for beginners! With a great selection of entrees, no matter what you choose, you won't regret it. End your meal with a night cap from our large selection of scotch and bourbon or even just an espresso. We promise you will be walking out happily satiated!!

My wife & I met friends prior to a ceremony at the Marine Barracks. That scenario always entails a timeliness issue.... Bottom line: the food was great, service prompt and courteous. Good beer and wine list. An overall A+; recommend without reservation.

Great neighborhood restaurant and bar. We had delicious cocktails and a wonderful meal before heading to see Billy Joel. We will be back for more oysters!

The food was quite good. The service was terrible. We ordered appetizers, then dinner and wine. The appetizers took forever to come out, and then were rushed by the main course, with the wine following by a significant delay. The waiter did not fill everyone's glass for the first pour and then didn't bother to refill glasses when he returned to check on how we were doing. I would not recommend Senart's to a friend when there are so many excellent competitors within blocks.

Family and I were there for a Sunday dinner, and we had a wonderful meal together. Always a great place to go eat whenever in town, and they never disappoint! Had the Chesapeake oysters--nice and clean. Great Sunday for beef, so we had the ribeye, burger, short ribs, and petite filet. All delicious! Great service, too. Can't go wrong when you eat there.

Was in town with our son. This had good reviews. Highly disappointed. Caesar was dry. Steak was chewy. Hamburger was some Sysco product.

Service was great! Food was good at the time. Both my date and I were sick the next day :/ Not sure what it was.

This place could be good but the food is just ok for the price and the service was terrible. I had high hopes and saw decent reviews but the food was under seasoned. The server was not at all attentive which was ridiculous considering there was only 3 tables there and plenty of servers. I can't say that I'll be returning anytime soon.

Writing this review after our second time dining at Senart's. The place was empty at 12:30 pm on a Saturday, while all the other restaurants on 8th st. were packed. Service was attentive since we were the only group there. My husband and I both ordered the eggs benedict with crab and prosciutto and it was so/so. The entirety of it was sort of soggy and lukewarm, and the crab and prosciutto (which sounded great) seemed like afterthoughts. Perhaps it is an evening/happy hour kind of place, but the atmosphere and mediocre food have been the same both times we've been.
