We celebrated our last night in Washington at the Sea Catch Restaurant. We had reserved ahead, and it was a good thing, as even on a Wednesday night the place was packed. There were several conference groups that descended on the place all together, making service slow until the groups were settled in and had their first drinks.
The food was very good. Fresh fish, prepared and served well. However, the service was a bit "hit and miss", with some requested items arriving quickly and with a smile, and others (like a request for appropriate cutlery) having to be repeated. In fact, our mussel cutlery did not arrive until we had finished the course. Had we waited, the mussels would have been cold.
The restaurant is in a renovated historic building in the basement level, and is rather dark, but very interesting. There was an outdoor eating area overlooking the old canal, but it was too cold, rainy and dark to eat there while we were there. It looked as though it would have been a nice area in good weather.
Despite the glitches in service, we did have an enjoyable evening meal.
