We have been here a few times because it is located in the same complex as the Rio Cinema. We started coming just after they opened and the service was great.

My wife and I came here to get a bite to eat just after getting into the DC metro. While the view is nice looking out onto the "lake", we found the service and food lacking. When we walked in, we immediately noticed no one seating inside but a few people were outside. Once we got seated, we waited a... More

We were so disappointed with this place. We went in at 10pm to have dessert and enjoy the outdoors seating overlooking the lake. Well, to begin the place was dirty, inside and outside, the table was wet and it had not rained. The waiter took quite long to notice our presence and when he finally came to our table he... More

We had stopped at Cafe Deluxe for dinner while on vacation. The place looked a bit fancy in that the tables had linens, but when we noticed a casual crowd inside, we decided to stop in. Service was decent and friendly. The beverage menu was small, but appropriate. My wife had the chicken penne, I had the chicken pot pie... More

Good service, apetizer and main course was on time and the waiter did a great job. The crème brulé should had been a liitle bit more cook.

I've been here twice in the past 4 weeks and won't be returning. The quality of the food is in serious decline. I ordered a greek salad with shrimp and the shrimp were so overcooked they were mushy and gross. I told the server (which I don't normally do) and she brought back new shrimp 25 minutes later. REally? I... More

We came for brunch hoping to be served as we are at the one in Bethesda. What a disappointment. Our server was pleasant enough but kept forgetting to bring simple items (skim milk, cream, straws). The kitchen was clearly overwhelmed with brunch crowd and it took over 30 minutes to be served. We saw another family of 4 give up... More

Seated promptly but it took another 15+ minutes for anyone to come by - and that happened only when we asked a server to do so. Order taken and drinks provided - but no refills of iced tea. No visits to the table. No bread service. No food delivered for about 45 minutes. Eventually we asked for help and the... More

We went for lunch on Saturday. Our food took forever to be delivered and one of the four plates was totally wrong. Richard, our server, was completely unaware of the error until it was pointed out to him. It then took a long time to get the correct salad (!) made. All we got was a weak apology upon delivery....

Decent house wine for $4. Nice selection of appetizers. In fact, the prosciutto mac'n'cheese is better than most entree selections other places. The hummus and accompanying veggies and pita wedges was a bit bland. The flatbread pizza appetizer was plenty to share for two. The available appetizers during happy hour are about half their normal price. Our server was very... More
