Always a gracious and inviting destination with tablecloths and a more formal ambiance, we were delighted to see a menu with even more salad choices than on previous visits. Each of the three diners ordered a different salad and all were presented in aesthetic ways with fresh bread for the table. We loved the variety of unusual ingredients and my... More

WE have been monthly regulars to the Oakville Grille and Wine Bar for several years...and the food is always consistent and fresh and flavorful! The menu is overly extensive...but all of the dishes seem to come out well. The rock fish with parmesan and pistachios was cooked perfectly and was a very sizable portion. The scallops were large and cooked... More

The Oakville Grill has been there for many years, and it has a dependable, friendly but relatively formal, atmosphere. Our dinner: lamb and rockfish, followed by creme brulee, was also dependably good. The service was adequate, although a water spill was not cleaned up. The Grille suffers in comparison with nearby competitors.

We arrived late, when only a couple of tables were still occupied. The atmosphere is pleasant, rock music in the background, the place very clean and service fast and accurate. We started with a simple but delicious crab cake: nothing fancy, just fresh and tasty crab with coleslaw and sauces on the side. As an entree I had an artistically... More

We've been going here for a decade, mostly for lunch. The food has always been very good, with fresh ingredients. The preparation and presentation varies depending on who is in the kitchen at the time, but is consistently tasty. Waiters come and go, but the manager at the front is a longtime resident. Good for a tete-a-tete with your neighbor.... More

Once again we enjoyed a superb meal in sophisticated surroundings. There is nothing really so special about Oakville, but the neighborhood feel, and consistently great cuisine keep us coming back. Not inexpensive, but good value. Tonight's list of summer entree seafood salads was just the right thing for a hot August evening. Busy, but the noise level is reasonable. Off... More

A friend and I lunched together at this inviting restaurant. It is inviting because it has white tablecloths, an experienced hostess/owner at the entrance and a relaxing atmosphere. As a matter of fact, although service was timely, we never felt rushed and enjoyed sitting, eating and talking for two hours without ever feeling rushed or hurried out the door. The... More

I've had to eat a few times. A favorite of one of my family. It is alright, but I wouldn't go there is I had a choice. The food is just not inspiring.

This is a such a pleasant relaxed, friendly place that I returned time and time again and worked my way through the menu until I sampled the Pistachio and Parmesan Crusted Rockfish. Simply one of the best meals I've had at any restaurant. Farm raised rockfish oven roasted with roasted red pepper, spinach, orzo and vanilla-yellow corn sauce YUM! The... More

We had a fabulous family dinner. We were in Bethesda on vacation and stumbled upon the restaurant. What a gem. Great food, wine selection, and service.
