The Vinifera was superb. From the appetizers to dessert, everything was perfect. I encourage you to eat here when in Reston.

My parents have lived about 5 minutes from the Westin hotel and this restaurant since long before it opened but I didn't know it existed until a client in the area recommended it. I was there for a quick lunch but I will definitely go back with my family. Service was very good and everyone's meals were delicious. They told... More

Our dining group chose this based on reviews. We noted some consistent comments and they were spot on. Three of our party had the sea bass and raved. Three of us had the duck and all agreed that it was beautiful, but tasteless. Same thing applied to a couple of shared appetizers -lovely to look at, very little for the... More

They have a nice wine selection but the food was disappointing. I ate here years ago when they first opened and it was outstanding. This time, it was not nearly as good in fact, not good at all. The floor was sticky to boot!

Great service, excellent food, good atmosphere. Used as a destination restaurant despite being in an 'out of town' hotel location.

Fun mini-tapas on sticks, great Virginia wine selection, and delicious Chilean seabass (when you don't feel too guilty ordering it.) Deep in a hotel complex so not fun to arrive to, but once you are seated you could easily be in downtown DC for quality of food and service.

Came in late from the Dulles airport and proceeded to Vinifera (which is inside the Westin) for a light dinner. I sat in the part of the restaurant that is very relaxing because it is very comfortable and more like a lounge than a restaurant (comfy chairs and plush seating). After a glass of wine I had a small salad... More

We just discovered Pintxos (or Pinchos), the ultimate in bar snacks, and have now put Vinifera at the Westin Hotel in Reston at the TOP of our local eateries list. My husband and I have very small appetites, yet love food and varied flavors. That's exactly what you get with the tantalizing (single) bite-size morsels of deliciousness on their bar... More

Food and service are exceptional. I had the opportunity to enjoy dining at Vinifera several times during my recent stay in Reston. I have never had anything at Vinifera which wasn't incredible to eat. They have a great drink and wine list. The atmosphere is wonderful--a very comfortable place to relax. I have never had poor service here...always exceptional.
