My family went to Choices by Shawn last week for dinner. We were excited to try something new in Fairfax and had heard good things about this place. The location is good but there is very little signage to let you know this place is there! Inside is quaint, clean and has an airy feeling. Bathrooms were very clean. Our... More

Went with a regular customer of this eatery and she was disappointed. We were there for lunch with only two other tables occupied. The service was spotty. The vegetable medley was overly spiced and all of our party barely touched it. Reubens and chicken sandwich were nothing special- we were bummed.

Just got off the road from 4 1/2 hour trip. Enjoyed comfort and quiet of this quaint spot. The food was delightful and presented beautifully. Quite the happening place. Shower in the next room, but staff was most attentive to everyone in the room.

I love the food at Choices by Shawn, and as a Celiac they make me feel very safe with their own gluten free allergen cards. The food is delicious and very down-home style, a pleasure for both gluten and gluten-free eaters alike.

Those of us with gluten sensitivity know how challenging it is to find lunch options other than salads. At Choices by Shawn gluten free breads and rolls are available for each of the sandwiches and burgers on the menu. Several sides are also gluten free, including the garlic fries which are fragrantly delicious. There is an attractive bar with an... More

Our waitress seemed flustered and rushed. After being seated for about 15 minutes, she arrived to take our order. She did not seem to know the menu very well as she looked at my husband's menu to see what sides were offered with his meal. After taking our orders, she then realized that she never got us any drinks. The... More

It's not every day you get to eat in a historic home. It's neat to see the inside. The parking garage is right across the street, so that is convenient. The menu is interesting; this is not Panera. The prices are a bit high, but worth it. I've enjoyed the meals I've had there.

First impression, cute place, nice little wine bar but food service could use a face lift. Caesar salad was bagged romaine, bagged cheese, bagged croutons and a drizzle of, I'm guessing, bottled dressing, not even tossed. Decent selection of wine but cheap glasses, no riedel here. Finished my salad, server had me keep my fork. Fried chicken was decent but... More

I would definitely recommend this place for a large gathering. There were 12 in our group and we had a lovely little room to ourselves. The menu was quite varied so everyone in our group had something different. It all looked delicious. Butternut squash soup, gnocchi, mussels, salads, burgers, sandwiches, and crab cakes. It was simply delicious. We topped our... More

My fiance and I went to Fairfax recently to visit my college roommate and her Mom, who happened to be in town too. For dinner one evening, rather than cooking, my roommate took us all to this restaurant, saying it was a local favorite of hers. Her Mom is gluten intolerant, and my roommate has some particular food preferences too,... More
