Oyster Bar | Adams Morgan, District of Columbia

Came for dinner with out-of-town guests. Restaurant was nearly empty, but service was very slow. I had to look for our server for several minutes before being able to place an order. No idea where she went. The crowd at the bar was loud, and they seated us next to them and near the kitchen - not sure why since the restaurant was almost empty. That definitely detracted from the evening - food and drinks were very good, but all of the comments about slow or poor service seem warranted, unfortunately. More

Food was delicious and service was top notch. Had the scallops and braised short rib pasta. Tried 8 different bourbons and ryes - the selection is almost overwhelming. Perhaps most importantly, got the brown butter cake w/ salted caramel gelato - I could eat that every day for the rest of my life. More

The sushi and sashimi for two was -amazing-. My only complaint was that the nigiri had wasabi hidden underneath the fish and that was an unpleasant surprise for me, as someone who doesn’t like wasabi at all. Otherwise, A+ dish all around! More

The fried chicken dinner did not disappoint! I went for dinner with my mom around 6:30 on a Friday and we were one of maybe four other parties. Very good service, and quiet on the second floor. The first floor was more of a bar / appetizers area, while the second floor had a more intimate, quiet ambiance. Would love to try the brunch next time! More

excellent selection of Lebanese appetizers and entrees including the wonderful Lebanese stews one doesn't usually find at cafes. We really enjoyed the stuffed vegetables dishes -- try the mixed selection! More
