Great food and service
Fantastic food & service! Must try the crab cake & she crab soup. They are excellent!
It was Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy so they couldn’t honor the Open Table reservation. Didn’t seem to matter so we waited for a table along with those who just walked in.
Once seated, there was a very loud table beside us so we couldn’t carry out a conversation. Finally, my partner’s strip steak was too tough and inedible. They offered us a free dessert but they really should have removed the expensive steak item. Anyway I wouldn’t return on a Saturday night.
Haven't been in a few years (moved out of the country and now I am back). Still delicious meal and excellent service. I've never been disappointed. Amazing seafood :)
Service was poor, food was mediocre a and over-priced. I suggest passing if you have other options.
Food was only ok. Serving sizes were good. The server was great.
We had a lovely birthday dinner with some of the best service we’ve had in DC in years.
Outstanding service and food. Although Paella was no longer on the menu the chef accommodated our request for Paella. It was outstanding and exceeded our expectations. Fantastic staff
The service, food, and atmosphere were all spot on. Try the Norfolk Triple, you will not be disappointed. The strip steak was almost as tender as a fillet. The service was second to none, your water glass was kept full as was your soft drink, you never had to ask. The recommended wine pairing was excellent. Take your significant other here, you will not disappoint.
The Wharf is consistently outstanding!
This was the best meal we have had in a long time. My husband ordered the seafood sampler which was the special for the evening and it was excellent. The meal consisted of half a lobster tail with crabmeat along with shrimp and scallops wrapped in parchment served with rice and vegetables. I ordered the special beef tenderloin with shrimp and scallops with mushrooms in a sauce and roasted potatoes which I thoroughly enjoyed. We also ordered the bacon wrapped scallops for an appetizer and shared a key lime pie for desert. The service was excellent and prompt. We arrived a little early for our reservation and were seated immediately. We would definitely be returning the next time we are in town.
Food was amazing and the service was too! It was worth the Lyft drive from DC. Wish we could have gone back during out visit!
The value of the meal was not reflected in the quality of the food.
It was great.
This restaurant is great for tourists, who are not from the DMV. It is very disappointing to persons who are accustomed to fine seafood. Especially to those persons who are connoisseurs of this geographic regions wonderful seafood. My dining partner and I grew up eating very tasteful seafood. This food was mediocre at best.
Spent my farewell dinner here and it was amazing. Our server was fairly young but indeed efficient! The crab cakes were to die for! Would definitely be my go-to dinner place once Im back in Alexandria.
Always a pleasant dining experience at the Wharf. Have been a patron for many years.
Really nice location and great customer service from our server.
I was unimpressed with the Seafood selection.
This is a very pretty restaurant that serves good, but not great seafood. The crabcakes are very good compared to the rest of the cuisine
The restaurant was a little cold because we were seated close to the door. The food was delicious and we plan on visiting this restaurant again.
Great food, was celebrating my moms birthday. Waiter was very attentive and was polite.
Excellent service! Andrea was our server and she made our experience so fun!
The service was top notch. I enjoyed my experience quite well. The food was good, I should have gotten the she crab soup and not the clam chowder, but I won't make that mistake again. I will definitely go back in the future.
The restaurant is expectedly expensive. I would have rated them higher. But they took my favorite dish ofc the menu. We love this place. We have to make ourselves try other restaurants because we love their seafood. It's always fresh.
It was Valentine’s Day, so it was busy. We were seated in the back in a tight corner near the kitchen. It has a warm classy ambiance, but the carpet, tables, etc. are aging. The waitstaff was polite and attentive. The food was good especially the broiled crab cakes, shrimp, and coleslaw. The scallops were a little bland. My husband and I had a very nice time. But if I come back, I will try to get seated upstairs.
The food was great my waiter was awesome ambience was perfect!
Great experience on Valentine’s Day! One of our favorite restaurants.
Great food and nice atmosphere!
I love this place and would recommend to everyone to enjoy!
Poor service, rude waiter. Good food and ambience.
Really good food. Well worth the price. Service was excellent as the waitress was tireless, frequently checking on us. Nice and cozy ambiance. A bit pricey but damn the food was so good. Overall, a great experience.
Great place to eat and cozy
The shrimp and crab fritters are not as good as in the past. Seems like more filler than seafood which really takes away from the flavor. The she-crab soup tastes ok but it’s not as thick as we were accustomed to here or other restaurants. I still like this restaurant but a few of my favorite dishes have less seafood then what previously made those dishes standout.
The food wasn’t the best. The service was not good at all. We were the only couple in the restaurant at the time and it took forever for our food to come out. My husband had the fish and chips, the batter wasn’t even cooked on to the fish. It was so horrible the manager came over and offered us complimentary dessert on the house but we were so ready to go, we declined.
Food was great! Atmosphere was amazing! Definite must do experience!
Our server was very attentive and the food was delicious. Loved their Tuesday night specials
She crab soup and lump crab cakes are awesome!
We are regulars of the Wharf restaurant and although the food was very good, our server, I believe, may have been new. She promised us bread but then never brought it. I had to ask for it. She never came back after we were served our dinner to check on us. Also, I heard the server waiting on the table next to us explaining the specials for the evening. We were not told those either. We still enjoyed our evening but just not as much as usual.
Pretty good. They knew nothing about whiskey but the food was good.
