Oval Restaurant: "Great food" Washington D.C. Restaurant Tip by u4ria

Washington D.C. Restaurants: 647 reviews and 834 photos

This is a great place to sit on the patio on a nice day just by the White House.

Favorite Dish: I had the Grilled shrimp with feta which was absolutely wonderful. There was a blend of subtle flavours and the shrimp was very fresh.
The NY steak was very tender, but that is to be expected and after the shrimp, it really wasn't that exciting.
I had a creme brulee which was also phenomenal. The crust was just barely seared so it was not rock hard as most others make it. The custard is not as creamy as most, but had a very good smokey hint to it.
