We have eaten at a couple restaurants owned by the group that owns the Oval Room, and they all have the same high level of quality, style/ambiance, and service, which is very high. The setting is near the White House and the DC downtown business...More
We went for my birthday dinner, and though I've read great reviews about the Oval Room, we'd never diner here before. Now I see what we've been missing. The food was simply perfect, from the tuna appetizer to my husband's shrimp and grits to my...More
