We had dinner for a large group on a recent visit to the area. the staff made us feel welcome and the food was very good. The setting outdoors was especially nice with a view over the small lake.

I reserved a table for 15 for a family brunch. We were all coming in from out-of-town for a family gathering and I found this place on the internet. The staff was very friendly and helpful, added more place settings quickly and with no fuss when we had a few extras join us, and the food was fresh and well... More

Sitting at the bar looking out at the water as the sun set over the small lake at the Washingtonian, drinking a nice pale ale and having a terrific Cobb Salad with warm chicken and freshly cut avocado--what's wrong with that? Actually, not much. So you might want to try it. Nice atmosphere, and lots of folks walking by, enjoying... More

Great place close to the movie theater. Bar area is a bit lacking fun and beer selection. Try the outdoor patio for brunch. Can even bring your dog!

In its category I rate this lovely little place 5 stars. If you are staying at the Marriott and would like some breakfast or brunch, go here first. The location is perfect with a view of the lake. The prices are reasonable and our waitress was courteous and the service was prompt. The food was fine as well. We even... More

We went there today. The service was excellent. The food was good, albeit on the pricey side. It's a white tablecloth restaurant, but they cover the tablecloth with paper. That seems tacky to me. For their food prices, they ought to be able to afford to launder the tablecloths. I've never seen this before.

I ordered pasta with gruyere cheese and was pretty good. Unexpected surprise. Happy. Friendly staff, easy seating. Option for outdoor for nice weather and indoor seating. Manager came over, very friendly staff. My husband ordered a burger with sweet potato fries and yes they brought him regular fries, when we pointed it out to the waiter, he was nice enough... More

Second trip, still fair to poor quality, unprofessional service, and overpriced. There are much better restaurants in the general area !

Two of us stopped at Cafe Deluxe about 4:30 for supper before an early movie and were disappointed from the get go, thanks to a just satisfactory meal/service and very loud group of happy hour celebrants. Unfortunately, there was no place in the restaurant to escape the noise since it was too cold to sit outside. (Lesson: don't eat anywhere... More

Café Deluxe is located in the Rio Mall close to movie theaters. You do not have to go outside to get to it. The service is good but the food is just average. They don't appear to using top quality steaks, etc. I have also had brunch there, and it is fairly good.
