This restaurant was wonderful! We came here for the first time on NYE— it was easy to get a reservation and they seated us right away. The food was delicious— the pot of mussels was simple, tasty, and melt in your mouth (neither me nor my date had ever had them before). I had the fillet and scallops, both of which were cooked to perfection. Our server was very amicable— she gave us very good food and wine recommendations and also gave us the right amount of time and space to enjoy our evening. This was a great first experience with Washington Platform!

Overall good experience. Food was well cooked and tasty, and the service was good. Maybe a little pricey but worth it. Will be returning.

I enjoy my time at Washington Platform. Friendly people, zero pretense. The value is pretty great. A side dish here and there can get away from the kitchen's attention, but that's to be expected on a busy night, which it was while we were there. Overall, one can expect a nicely prepared and plated meal. Seasonal options were appealing and turned out to be very tasty!

We were there on Dec 23 and did not not realize it was the feast of the seven fishes buffet. Food was good. Will go back when we can order off the menu.

Pleasant dining option - The Canal Room has great authentic ambiance, and there's an eclectic range of seafood and creole options. Plus live Jazz.

Really enjoyed the food! Service started off slow (took 10 minutes for anyone to even come to the table) but turned out fine.

The kitchen was very slow. We were there for an hour before we got our dinner. We were asked if we wanted to sit in the front room as it would not be as noisy as the back room. We said OK but the table we sat at was in the corner near the window. Cold evening and I froze. Had to put my coat on. Food was OK, nothing spectacular.
