The Oakville Grille doesn't demand a particular dress code of its customers: come for lunch and you will find a full range of dress on display. Still, the tables are beautifully set with heavy linens and the overall feel of the place is a comfortable, low-key formality that somehow makes a meal here a nicer dining experience than many places...

The Oakville Grille really wants to be a fine dining establishment. Unfortunately, there are several problems getting in the way of it achieving that. - Price. Much too expensive for the quality, which wasn't bad but certainly wasn't good enough to justify the prices. - Food: It's good, but not (yet) very good. Two different meals (salmon and tilapia) both... More

This is a lovely restaurant. Everything we had - white pizza, duck confit, fish, was really good. And, things we saw but did not have tempt us to return soon. Deserts were equally good and a very nice and reasonably priced wine list. Excellent service by attentive and responsive staff. Even the bread was good. And the restaurant is relatively... More

Particularly appreciated was the willingness to accomodate my low sodium dietary requirement. With several tasty options to choose and a pleasant staff, I like this place to meet friends and work colleagues in an elegant environment.

Made a reservation for New Year's Eve.....were told it was impossible, but we could sit at the bar. When we arrived, the bar was crowded so we were offered a table in Geppetto's. We accepted, but were very disappointed! First of all, the service was just okay. Had to request the wine list and then the server stood over me... More

I've lived in Bethesda most of my life and always enjoy taking out of towners and friends to this nice restaurant for lunch- they have great options and the open faced grilled chicken sandwich is my absolute favorite! It can be a bit pricey, so i'd recommend trying lunch!

Other said it too, don't be fooled by the strip mall location. The menu has something for everyone, from appetizers to dessert. Excellent selection of wines also. The restaurant was fairly crowded, yet the noise level was low. One of our pickier family members said it was one of the best meals that she's had in a long time. The... More

Menu had many appealing possibilities. Our salads were fresh and delicious. Though there were other guests around us, it was quiet and a perfect place for conversation. I will return.

Fresh food. Maybe a little too much salt, but otherwise not overly seasoned. Staff is nice.

The ambiance at the Oakville Grille is quite nice and the decibel level is better than most in DC. In our recent experience, however, the menu and the quality of the food was inconsistent. The two main seafood entrees had the same sauce - a menu faux pas. If you are not into lemongrass-coconut sauce - oh well. The beef... More
