It was a great first date place 20 years ago and it was a great place to celebrate those 20 years! Already looking forward to 40 years (but we’ll obviously be there in the meantime too!)
The Wharf is one of my favorite restaurants. I always attend for my birthday and i attended yesterday for Restaurant Week. The food is always good and the service is outstanding. The tables were pretty spaced out. I always enjoy myself.
The food was excellent and the bartender was awesome!!!
A nice choice for good seafood, good service, a pleasant atmosphere where you can talk.
Our server Nick was great! He was pleasant; shared his opinion when we asked on certain dishes and beverages. Wonderful experience!
Went to this restaurant 3 years ago, just as good now as it was then
Always a fine experience!!!! Our waiter Diego is always the best. Food was amazing as usual. Reasonably priced. I love the Wharf!!!!
A terrific meal and dining experience for four. Service, noise level, friendliness of staff, and especially the food were all *way* above average! The environment was cozy and very comfortable, especially on a frigid winter night. The seafood salad was especially good - best I've had among many in the DC area and at a very reasonable price. There was plenty of fresh lobster, crab, and shrimp with just the right amount of a delicious dressing that perfectly complimented the seafood and greens without overpowering. Will definitely be back and recommend to others!
Dinner was great! The service was also awesome. Thanks again! Find my rating below!
We enjoyed our New Year’s at The Wharf! I hadn’t dined there in a while (so many Old Town options), nor had eaten risotto in a while, so both were a refreshing change. The host and our server were very good and welcoming.
Sat us at the door and right under AC but moved us when a table opened. Run out of chocolate moose cake . Disappointed. The steak was overpriced. Overall, ok and left satisfied..
When I lived in Old Town, I went to the Wharf often. The New Year's weekend brought me back and now I'll miss leaving again as the Wharf 'nailed it' again. Great Restaurant, one of the best in Old Town.
They did not tell us that it was prix fixe only.
Good food, great ambiance. Nick was a fantastic server. Dishes overpriced but we enjoyed ourselves.
4 Month Anniversary 🎉
Incredibly overpriced for sub-average sea food.
We were very disappointed, considering the huge number of positive reviews for this location. The calamari was the most bland we’ve ever had, the “jumbo lump” crab was shredded into tiny bits and swimming in butter, and I’m pretty sure my bacon wrapped scallops weren’t fully cooked.
Overall, our price out the door was about $100 more than it should have been…especially considering we could have gotten far superior sea food from Red Lobster…
Nice ambience for a date night. The wait staff was overly attentive and we had 2 or 3 different servers that continually interrupted to ask how we were; it'd be nice to coordinate the service if there will be multiple people attending to a single table. We also saw a mouse on the floor 2 tables away; reported it to the manager who offere to move us but rather shrugged it off. Food was fine, but nothing special and a bit pricey.
Tasty seafood, and decent service though that could be better. Busy and perhaps understaffed impacted service. Seafood platter was very good and reasonable, but pricey drinks for the quantity provided.
Made reservations at the Wharf for Christmas Eve and it was absolutely wonderful! Our server was so kind and attentive and all three courses for their christmas menu were delicious. Highly recommend!
We’ve gone to The Wharf several times over the last couple years… and sadly it seems like the quality has steadily declined. First visit was fantastic… this last visit waiter hurried us so we ordered our drinks and meals… and we got appetizers, drinks, and entrees - in that order, all within 5 minutes. One of the drinks was so potent it was undrinkable. Completely unenjoyable experience and possibly our last visit to the Wharf.
Christmas Eve dinner was delicious as the food always is at one of our favorite restaurants
This is our yearly Christmas Eve date night spot. ( we go other times too).
The food is always delicious and the staff amazing,
See you soon.
Great way to spend Christmas Eve. Plan to visit again in 2022!
Best crab stuffed shrimp I've ever had. Lots of crabmeat for the price! It was a nice surprise.
What a great find! The food was fantastic. The service was great and quick. First time I've been there but would definitely go back.
The location was very nice the service was very timely and knowledgeable. Would come back again.
We had a lovely table outside for my son's graduation celebration lunch. We were a group of 7 and they were extremely accommodating. Food was very good.
Well prepared seafood dishes. The swordfish special was simply grilled with beurre blanc snd capers. And the food was served properly hot. The waitress was friendly and efficient but perhaps too busy, so there one or two lapses of attention. The wine list is short but well chosen.
Great overall experience
A great new restaurant! I love it! Food was great! Definitely coming back
Me and my husband and daughter went here, since couple years. Although the service was good I would not recommend the food. We all three had seafood platters, the shrimp
Was rubbery, not warm and scallops were not something to write home about. The lobster was ok 1/2 with crab stuffing. for price probably won’t come back, wish we could have went to another restaurant for seafood.
The appetizers were good, but my cocktail was wayyy too sweet after I already told them I didn't like sweet drinks. The lobster roll was practically inedible--way too salty. You pay for the location and sadly that's about it.
Great all around the board. Absolutely no complaints. Food was delicious, service was great and the welcome was pleasant. We will definitely be back sooner than later.
Went here for my Birthday….the entire experience was nothing short of Amazing!!! Diego was our waiter and he was Super Patient…..Awesome! I will definitely be going back
Best crab cakes in Virginia! Brunch is excellent too.
This restaurant tries to hard to accommodate everyone, packing tables too close together and in walkways there shouldn't be tables. It could be a nice experience if they didn't try to jam in more people then they can hand.
Our server was wonderful and we really felt sorry for her having to cover to many diners.
