“A don't miss find in Bethesda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

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 service was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special family dinner or a nice place to take your first date..!

“Lovely Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

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.

“Nice atmosphere, good continental cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

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

“Costco Beef is Better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

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 entree was flavorless and just not good quality. I had the special of the week (stuffed peppers) which were uniquely prepared and quite good.

Overall - a mediocre evening.

“Was skeptical.... but extremely happy with the evening.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

I hosted a group of co-workers this week at the Oakville Grille and Wine Bar. It was very close to the hotel in which we were staying and had good ratings and an interesting selection of wines so we ventured out. All 6 of us ordered something different and the meals were all very good. It was a nice atmosphere inside and the staff was very attentive. Will definitely be back when in Bethesda.
