"This is an iconic restaurant with great food and a professional staff that seems proud to be part of such an establishment. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, the portions just right. We were given a personal tour by the manager of the second floor of the restaurant after we expressed an interest in learning the history of the hundreds of portrait photos that cover the walls. Overall, a great experience that we will not soon forget. We were staying in the Willard Hotel for a group event and told many of our colleagues about our dining experience. We will definitely return for our next stay in DC."

"Great bargain for Restaurant week. The menu is simple but had all bases covered. Great staff that appears magically but doesn't hover. The downstairs dining area seem to be more lively but we dined upstairs. The room was tastefully decorated and quite. Overall, my family enjoyed the evening a lot."

"My husband and I went to Occidental Seafood & Grill for Restaurant Week. The food was really great. I had the braised short ribs and my husband had the salmon and crab cakes. Both were delicious! Everything we had was cooked perfectly, from appetizer to dessert. Our waiter was also absolutely fantastic. He made excellent recommendations and was a big part of our experience. I can say we will definitely be returning in the future."

"The portions had been dramatically reduced for restaurant week and in my opinion, were not spectacular. My potato leek soup was not hot rather it was warm and my salmon cakes were small. I visited several restaurants during restaurant week as the week gives many guests the opportunity to enjoy 3 courses at DC's finest restaurants and truly see what the restaurant has to offer. I was disappointed with what this fine restaurant had to offer."

"The overall experience was outstanding, and the food was absolutely delicious. This is one of several places that I had visited, and out of them all this one was perfect. The others were lunch, but I enjoyed the dinner ambiance."

"An appropriate high class Bistro for a high class hotel. Ambience is appropriate for an older, wealthier clientele. Contrary to listings this is an expensive restaurant with many entrees $35 to $55."

"We found the OG & S a bit expensive for what we received. The service, on the other hand, was very good. We went there for New Year's Eve, and most restaurants of any quality have somewhat higher prices than they normally do. We'll have to try OG and S on a "regular" evening."

"Attracted by the history behind the establishment but also attracted to the menu options. No lack of service here. Pleasant flow to the evening. Found a very nice bottle of Cab in short order. I can speak to the entrees of Ahi tuna and the Pumpernickel-crusted venison. Tuna was indeed sushi grade and delicious. The venison was a treat and readily comparable to Café Diva in Steamboat Springs . The bread pudding was perfect for dessert for two. Worth trying at least once."

"While the food was good and our waiter was fine, the overall service/kitchen was very slow. We made a point of mentioning that we were seeing a show at 8 PM, but the kitchen was extremely slow and took appx 45 minutes for our main course to be prepared, requiring us to ask for the check when our main course arrived and hurry through our food. For what I consider a higher-end restaurant, the service was lacking and not worthy of the higher prices."
