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

Nice location with a view of lake Anne. The Spaghetti with white clam sauce was excellent with clams in their shells. Greek salad was authentic and tasty. Greek hamburger was good. Prices were all reasonable and we sat there in the beautiful outdoors for 2 hours. Very enjoyable.

I have actually been in this restaurant couple of times. Most of their foods is adorable, however, their Gyro is something else. They just don't serve you a pre-made freezed gyro. They actually have a Gyro machine and their materials seems to be fresh. Also the view of the restaurant is nice which is in front of the Lake Anne... More

This place is right on lake anne with lots of tables for al fresco dining. I've gone several times and have enjoyed their lamb gyro. The meat comes out perfectly cooked and seasoned. Their fries are good as well. The service tends to be slow and the kitchen even slower. They have live indoor music on the weekends and outside... More
