Oceanaire Seafood Room is a high quality Seafood restaurant with the same high quality ambiance and service. Part of the Landry's Group, we always seek out Oceanaire restaurants when we are travelling as the quality and service are always consistent. The best Lump Crabs Cakes--better than any we have had on the Easter Shore of Maryland.

Had a late dinner, no reservation, we were accomodated immediately. Upscale ambiance. The Calamari is the best I have ever tasted. It's prepared like a Calamari & Veggie stir fry - delicious !!! Ordered the Lobster Pot Pie and Crab Cake entrees. Absolutley exquisite. This place has perfected fine dining and of course it is reflected in the prices. But... More

the boys at the bar took great care of me, drinks are cold, fish is outstanding, and the management hovers about making sure everyone is happy. If you need a good seafood meal in D.C. give these guys a try

Went there to celebrate a friend's birthday. The atmosphere was sophisticated and mature. The staff was respectful and professional. I had the 6 ounce filet mignon and the lobster mac n cheese. My fiancee had the shrimp and filet mignon dish with asparagus. Both these dishes were average. For the price, I expected that they would have overwhelming flavor. Doubt... More

White table cloth seafood in the heart of Washington DC. Excellent but pricey fare in a relatively formal atmosphere.

. . . with predictably great service and delicious fish options. This visit it was their "Black & Bleu" Carolina Swordfish that was a delightful blend of flavors and textures. The large business group dinner was a huge success because everyone was pleased with their meals and the dessert sampler was especially impressive.

Had a late dinner (9:00) with a group of 8. We had an assortment of oysters to start which were very good and fresh. The tuna poke was an excellent salad. The other salads looked good and everyone enjoyed. The crab cakes were outstanding. We all skipped dessert although they looked wonderful. The wine list was very good and for... More

The Oceanaire Seafood Room is one of the BEST restaurants I have ever visited. I took my fiance' there for her Birthday and she absolutely LOVED it. They closed at 9pm on Sunday but still took us for an 8:30 reservation. And we were not rushed one bit. Our meal: Outstanding!!! I had the Surf and Turf with Dynamite topping.... More

My daughter and I had a lovely meal here on a recent trip to Washington. The restaurant is pretty and open, although the tables are a little close together. The service was fantastic. Everyone we met was friendly, informative and very attentive to our comfort and enjoyment. We felt like royalty. The food was great. Beautifully cooked salmon for me... More

I had the pleasure of having a business dinner here while in DC. Top notch from beginning to end, highly recommended for this kind of meal. We had a party of three which turned out to be a great size to share wine/apps/sides. The wine list was extensive... we choose a Sauvignon Blanc with the help of the server (who,... More
