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

The outside porch is deserted like in an old house. No one cares about how the customer feels before stepping into the place. Chairs and tables are rusting in the rain outside, and some are reluctantly thrown upside down. Then you step inside the restaurant to a smelly stuffy atmosphere. My friend her child and I were escorted by a... More

We had planned a birthday dinner for eight. When we arrived, they had yet to set our table. They must have been seriously under-staffed, as service throughout dinner was simply awful. Our waiter was a nice-looking and earnest young man, who seemed to know nothing. He brought one small bread basket fir a table of eight, literally not enough to... More

Went here for breakfast and Daughters baby shower. The side room was large enough to fit 15 people and children comfortably. This is a first visit for my Wife and me and the breakfast was substantial and quite delicious. When it came to desert however, the pickings were rather sparse as they had run out of most of their menu.... More
