Finally Tried this place

We have walked by this restaurant countless times to eat at another restaurant in the Lake Anne Shopping Center. Alas, that restaurant closed (R.I.P.) and we decided to try Kalypso's . We started off with the crab dip appetizer - just okay and we were charged an extra $1.50 for more toasted bread... read more

Our small Red Hats group went last night for dinner. I never think of Lake Ann as a place to go for dinner. This restaurant is hidden if you don't know the area. They have a lovely outdoor area with a view of the lake and fountain. Very pleasant evening to sit outside. The thing that bothered me was that... More

We ordered a veggie pizza and chicken souvlaki. The chicken was moist and flavorful, but the French fries had too much salt. The pizza was even more salty with way too many black olives, too much cheese, and hardly any sauce. Our waiter was nice and apologized profusely for the slow service. We've dined here before and hope the next... More

Everyone in our party of four enjoyed the food, from mussels with linguini, to several Greek dishes like gyro. We visited Kalypso's on a Thursday night during a summer concert. Two members of our party said they have never seen it busier. This may explain the service. First, we had to ask our server for a 2nd beer. Then, they... More

I live near Kalypso's and have eaten there at least 40 times. Every meal has been excellent. Even their game day bar food is very good. Service can be a little spotty sometimes but you don't care when you're on the outside deck having a bottle of wine and enjoying the lake or maybe live music. Especially on a nice... More

We were with a group of 16 which was nice that they were willing to accommodate us. We got our salads and there were two live bugs in my husbands salad. Half us us couldn't bear our salads and sent them back. They just swiped the bugs off the table since they crawled off the plate and onto the table.... More

My wife and I shared an excellent Souvlaki sandwich with French fries. Both were superb. We especially like this restaurant with it's lake view and great outside summer seating. Give it try.

I took my twentysomething sons to Kalypso's on the Saturday night after Thanksgiving to watch some football, drink some beer, and eat. Kalypso's has 2 seating areas, and has a polished feel throughout. We bellied up to the bar which has many, large-screen TVs, and enjoyed eating, drinking, and watching football. We had no trouble finding seats at the bar,... More

I was the only one sitting outside, in the patio. The waitress was attentive. This time I ordered the crabcakes platter, $22. It came with 2 crab cakes, 4 asparagus, and shoestring french fries. The fries were excellent! The crab cakes were edible but OK. I wouldn't order them again. The location is great. I had a nice view of... More

Kalypso's has to be one of the unique restaurant/bar's in Reston. Plenty of TV's to watch sports, super bar tenders (friendly), servers that care, well prepared dishes and a variety of entertainment. I have patronize Kalypso's as a consumer and an entertainer, finding a clientele that is loyal to their hometown bar. Inside and outside seating by Lake Anne. They... More
