The Oval Room, an elegant & sophisticated restaurant, near Farragut Square across from the White House, which accounts for its popularity among politicians, journalists, lobbyists, lawyers, & former Presidents. The setting is contemporary & chic. It offers private dining. Its seasonal contemporary American cuisine has charmed critics & connoisseurs alike. USA Today said The Oval Room's flower-bedecked patio is one of the best outdoor dining experiences in the United States. The Oval Room has been awarded the "Distinguished Restaurant of North America Award".The Oval Room is honored to be Modern Luxury Washington D.C.’s “Restaurant of the Year”! Executive Chef Tony Conte and his team are serving some incredible, seasonal dishes and would love to see you at The Oval Room soon.

"On a Friday night, our two couples wanted great food and a setting sufficiently quiet that we could talk easily. We were amply rewarded at the Oval Room. Although the menu changes often, I'll mention my meal. The beet salad was nicely tangy, and the cod perfectly cooked and garnished. We shared two desserts -- passion fruit curd and black forest cake. Both were excellent. My nod might go to the passion fruit for a repeat. We talked about returning regularly to the Oval Room rather than going other places for our occasional dinner dates. The restaurant richly deserves its regular listings among DC's finest."
