The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. <br />Virginia is for lovers (of seafood)! Our two-story restaurant is double the fun with entrances on both levels for easy entrée. Choose to make a splash in the downstairs dining room or in the bar upstairs. Our landscaped interior patio is also a popular lure.<br /><br />Our convenient restaurant location within Tysons Galleria II will get you hooked. Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker.<br /><br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

"We love dining here for lunch at the Tysons Corner location - it is located in the Galleria Mall - across Rt 123 from the Tysons Corner Center Mall - plenty of parking available and lots to see and do before and after dining. The food is wonderful and so is the service - I always enjoy the fried shrimp won tons and grilled shrimp Caesar salad. My guest enjoyed the grilled fish and a delicious bowl of fish chowder."

Under the guidance of the Livanos family and Co-Owner Paul McLaughlin, Oceana has provided New Yorkers with an exceptional seafood destination since 1992. <br /><br />Oceana's a la carte menu, coupled with its convenient Midtown location, make it a perfect spot for a quick business lunch or pre-theater dinner. From the spectacular marble bar to the fresh lobsters and whole fish cooked to order, as well as a significant selection of prime meats, Executive Chef Ben Pollinger delivers a fresh, innovative and approachable menu.<br />Oceana has a 70 seat Cafe with a 18 seat marble bar. Great for lunch, after work cocktails & snacks, pre-theater dinner and post-theater desserts. An award winning international wine list with some 1000 selections. Spring and Summer bring a 75 seat outdoor dining area, private dining options include our Chef's table for 4, Wine Room for 18, and our Grand Salon for 80. <br />Please indicate in the Special Requests box if you will be attending Theater.

"This is a lovely restaurant - menu is extensive with something for everyone! Their baked bread selection is unique and delicious - we split an order of delightful fried calamari - I had steak and my husband enjoyed the stripped bass. Their dessert selection is extensive - their ice cream and sorbet seemed home made!"

Set in the sleek W Hotel Times Square setting, Blue Fin oohs and aahs its audience with a prominent raw bar, extensive sushi menu and much more! Unwind at either of Blue Fin's two bars and sip a seasonal cocktail or glass of wine from the 400+ bottle wine list. Up early for a matinee or just on your way to the office? Blue Fin gets the early riser going with smoothies and fresh squeezed juices, in addition to power-packed breakfast offerings featuring farm-fresh ingredients. To create this two-story, 400-seat dining spectacle in the epicenter of the most exciting city in the world, design firm Yabu Pushelberg provided original features as an expansive sparkling wall of highly polished mirror, glowing resin tables, and a floating staircase that leads to live music upstairs.

"We enjoyed a delightful dinner here! It is right off of Times Square and has a lovely interior of crystal and ocean colors. Amazing full sushi and sashimi bar - so many choices that my husband and sister-in-law found it hard to make up their minds for their appetizers! I loved my Tempora Shrimp with Mango/Yuzu sauce and steak filet. My husband enjoyed the red snapper - Do come here you will love it!!!"

Le Rivage offers you a cozy, romantic French country atmosphere where traditional French cuisine is expertly prepared for your pleasure. Fresh flowers embellish each table. Prices are delightfully affordable with incredibly rewarding selections; a true bargain in the heart of the theatre district.

"During our trip to the Big Apple we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Le Rivage. It is close to the Times Square area where we were staying - so we could walk. It is on a quieter side street. The restaurant's lovely interior you felt we were back in Paris! Menu was extensive and I enjoyed a delightful onion soup - steak - my husband enjoyed their Monk Fish Medallions and the tart maison for a wonderful dessert finish."

With 4 decades of experience, Wolfgang Zwiener didn't duplicate an exceptional steakhouse, he improved on it to make Wolfgang's Steakhouse exceptional. The porterhouse steak for one, two, four or more, is an outstanding choice. The atmosphere, expanded menu & professional service will appeal to even the most exacting diners. Wolfgang's is pleased to add this location in the heart of Midtown East.

Tucked into a little off beat corner of Old Town Alexandria is Bastille, Chefs Christophe and Michelle Poteaux's award winning intimate bistro and wine bar. Bastille offers guests a contemporary take on classic French fare at approachable prices, set in a warm and upscale environment. <br /><br />The Poteaux's creations are sparked by traditional, yet modern interpretations of classic dishes that utilize seasonal, locally sourced and farm fresh ingredients. With an expansive wine list, unique beer selections and creative cocktails, Bastille has a little something for everyone.

"Found menu was limited unless you are really into advanced french food (like duck). The bread is served stone cold and so tough it almost pulls your teeth out. We were not pleased that the only salad dressing available was a vinaigrette and my friend had to settle for some mayonnaise as we can't eat acidic foods. They don't really allow any substitutions and the fingerling potatoes were tasteless and kind of greasy. Instead of allowing ratatouille to substitute for fingerling potatoes (which was not allowed on my friends diet) they charged him $9. Thought bar menu nice but very expensive as a glass of champagne was $12.50 and not that great. I think the restaurant needs to be more flexible in variety of food offered especially sides."

"This is a relatively new place to dine and we decided to try it. The restaurant is lovely and tables well spaced - service wonderful and food was great! I liked the menu choices very much - I enjoyed the fried calamari with artichoke hearts - great steak and delicious chocolate locally made ice cream! They also have a great choice of champagne by the glass which is important to me. I highly recommend this new restaurant to all - the menu choices are varied and there is something delicious to enjoy for everyone!!"

History has been written inside the walls of the Wharf, with its 1790's style architecture featuring original wood columns and beams that are charred black from a Civil War fire. Since 1971, satisfied diners have been heading to The Wharf in Old Town for whole Maine lobster, local soft shell crabs and prime steaks. The restaurant has recently been renovated and remodeled and the menu updated to include many contemporary seafood items along with their traditional Chesapeake Bay creations.

"We periodically come to the Wharf to dine and enjoy it each time. The interior is quaint and reservation staff easy to deal with. They also have tables on the sidewalk during the summer months for people who enjoy a true people watching experience! The menu choices are very extensive and they have lots of specials - whether you like fish or steak there is something for you to enjoy!! Their seafood soups are delicious and desserts delicious. When you are in Old Town be sure and make a reservation!"
