vipOpenTable Diner (Washington DC)

Dined 2 days ago

I have visited Tower Oaks on multiple occasions over the years and have never had a problem. Last evening, we were there to celebrate a birthday and it was the worst experience thus far. First off, the hostesses did an amazing job as always. Once seated, that’s where things went downhill. We ordered the Calamari and it came out very rubbery. Next once our food came out, all of our orders had an issue. The crab cakes and Salmon were undercooked and un seasoned. They brought out buttered noodles for our son when we clearly asked for Mac and cheese, finally my open faced Turkey sandwich was probably the worst I’ve ever eaten. Even with the gravy, it was dry and lacked flavor. While I love the Ambiance that Tower Oaks once had, we felt rushed and as indicated, the food was just not up to par. Should we have asked for a manager? Yes, but it really wouldn’t have changed anything because the evening was ruined. Would I go there again? Probably. It could have been an off night for the kitchen, but I can’t make any excuses.

Great ambiance and food. Service is excellent. We went for dinner and asked to be seated in a quiet cosy spot. We got exactly what we asked for. Very happy.

Disappointed in the waiter service and the food was mediocre at best.

Several dining rooms, each with a similar busy, rustic theme. Good seasonal menu and variety at a very reasonable price.
