The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.<br /><br />For all those who love seafood in Crystal City, the world really can be your oyster. Choose from among the 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish we serve simply prepared, 365 days a year.<br /><br />In season, our patio seating is a lure for those who choose the fresh seafood and fresh air combo.<br /><br />Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. We’ve received a boatload of accolades including being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Our inspiration for this restaurant was the Unites States of America past and present.<br /><br />What is American food? We believe it has become a blend of traditional American dishes and those from around the world. Today, cities nationwide are immersed with regional and ethic foods... Our menu brings together traditional American and global cuisine with our own interpretation and personal touch.<br /><br />Our decor is a reflection of American industry with iron, concrete, wood, and steal. Pops of leather, bronze and copper colors warm it up along with our modern 60" fireplace.

"Great Italian food which can be made better. My dish (lasagna) was great, while my wife's veal piccata was not up to snuff with the Tyson's Maggianos. Also, the waiter served an ice tea which was clearly over-concentrated (quickly remedied), Perhaps some more mentoring from the successful Tyson's location will help move to 5 stars."

Domenico Cornacchia, chef/proprietor of Assaggi Osteria, taps into ages of ancestral Italian cooking each time he steps into his kitchen and brings a rich love of the cuisine that he so skillfully nurtured through the years. “Assaggi means tastings in Italian,” explains Domenico, “The concept of my menu is based on a variety of items that may be ordered in smaller portions.” Before deciding to pursue his dream of operating his own restaurant, Domenico was corporate executive chef and partner at Café Milano, for more than 15 years. His culinary umbrella also covered Café Milano’s two sister restaurants, Sette Bello in Clarendon, VA., and Sette Osteria in Dupont Circle.  For those who love Italian cuisine, Assaggi Osteria features homemade pasta’s, fresh seafood, veal and scrumptious beef. Assaggi Osteria sources whole fresh fish from worldwide sustainable sources,offering the finest bounty the sea has to offer. Produce is purchased from Amish farms and all desserts are homemade.

"It is nice to see decent mid-market restaurants coming to Springfield TC/Mall. Maggiano's Springfield offers a decent Italian meal at a decent price."

"We have been trying out the National Harbor restaurants, and decided to check out Bond 45 on Sunday afternoon. The waiter was not familiar with the menu, and not helpful in making selections. When the food arrived, the seafood dish was cold and the steak was delivered without sides. Definitely not worth the $100+ bill. We will stick to Old Town Alexandria; everything about National Harbor has been disappointing in general and Bond 45 was the most disappointing."
