As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire. See you soon.

"I've been to Oceanaire for lunch several times, but it's been a while for dinner. Now I know why. Awful management. Upon arriving, there were three people in front of host screen (& a forth who couldn't hover because there was not enough room) without one raising their head to acknowledge my arrival. Restaurant was empty. Presumably, servers with restaurant mgr were more concerned about the table assignments for the pending arrivals than my arrival. After waiting, I discovered that two of my guests were already there around the corner. Should have just walked into the restaurant myself.
One of my guests asked what Chardonnay was popular & server said the popular Chardonnay was 'the cheapest, but my manager likes the next one up.' When we asked which one that was, she didn't know but offered to bring a sample. Nice gesture but lazy way out. My cocktail arrived in a shaker but no glass.
After enjoying the Mac & Lobster, I asked what type of pasta it was. She said the flavor comes from smoking the pasta. Still have no idea what type of pasta it was & she never offered to find out.
A full pot of scalding hot coffee was poured on me when the pot top was not secured ....on my shirt, suit pants & jacket. Server was very apologetic. It happens. But you expect an offer to pay dry cleaning, a dry napkin to cover white linen table spill & an attempt to remove filled saucer.
She comes back with napkins. Five minutes later, a mgr goes by my table, makes eye contact & then circles back to table & says "I heard we had an accident here. First thing I want to do is make sure you are ok. Are you ok?" Would have been sincere if he simply went straight to table & asked me. I had to ask to have coffee saucer filled with coffee removed after three opportunities. Mgt removed two desserts & coffee from bill. Would have paid for both with more attentive & knowledgable service even with coffee spill.
I blame bad management not server for entire wasted night."

Belga cafe is a great place to eat typical Belgian cuisine. Combining an intriguing atmosphere with excellent, light and healthy interesting food. Belga Cafe is a little bit of Brussels on the Hill, with an open kitchen and a sidewalk cafe.

Upon opening in September 2009, Bibiana instantly became one of Washington’s most popular hot spots.<p>Nick Stefanelli’s regional Italian fare features a variety of well executed small plates, antipasti and standouts including his whole roasted fish.<p>His cuisine helped earn Bibiana a glowing review and two-and-a-half stars from food critic Tom Sietsema of The Washington Post, and four stars from DC Modern Luxury critics. It also secured a place on Washingtonian’s list of the top one hundred restaurants in the nation’s capital. In June 2010 Bibiana was a finalist for “Best New Restaurant” and Nick Stefanelli won the “Rising Star Chef” from The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington. In October 2010, Stefanelli was also announced as the winner of StarChefs.com “Rising Star” award and Bibiana was named to Esquire’s exclusive list of 20 “Best New Restaurants 2010.”

"I like the place, although some of my friends are not fond. I don't get it. I've been several times and I think the food is great, even exceptional. Some desserts are truly spectacular. It's a little pricey but I enjoyed. If I'm writing about it several days later, then it's a memorable meal."
