Tahoga vs. Sea Catch

  • e

Could someone compare the food quality in these two Gtown establishments. I've walked by both, dined at neither, and have the inkling that Tahoga may be more interesting. Any words of advice? Thanks.

  1. If you care to scroll down, I wrote a long "review" of Sea Catch on 12/03/01. I consider it to be one of the most overlooked restaurants in Washington and certainly the most overlooked seafood restaurant. If you are interested in the highest quality seafood, expertly and relatively simply prepared, and served in a sophisticated setting (back dining room) by a professional staff, the Sea Catch is it.

    I've only been to Tahoga three times, and have never been that impressed. I find the setting to be a little cold, the bar business to be a little too good for a serious restaurant, the waitstaff to be a little green, and the menu a little too ambitious.

    Interestingly, I find these to be two very different experiences.

      I agree with Bill about Tahoga....I was not impressed with the menu or the service when I went there. The food was good, but I found it (including the wine list) tremendously overpriced.

      I can't help you with Sea Catch.....I haven't been there since its early days--which must be twenty years ago. It may be time to revisit.
