Fun, I guess

I'm sure that younger folks find this resto's shtick more inviting than I do, having one's meal made to order. The food was good, although I found the menu somewhat limited and the food more or less unremarkable. It's just not my kind of joint.

Do you hate the check splitting at the end of a gathering? The individual card system solves that problem. The food is okay and the drinks expensive for happy hour; however, I'd come here just for the atmosphere and individual card payment system.

I ordered takeout from Vapiano Reston today for lunch. First off, the phone number online is incorrect so it just rings. Upon additional research i found another number to call. This time it was answered by someone who was clearly either new or was completely inept. It was a simple order - 2 pastas, a salad and a dessert. He... More

The salads and pastas can be fresh and creative, but the seats are mostly backless and too high for my petite elderly friend. Almost impossible to carry on a conversation. We had to give up going.

Came here with the family for dinner. The first problem was that stuck in the middle of the table is a solid granite condiment holder, making sharing a dish with others at your table difficult. The pizza was wonderful, one of the best I've had in ages. The pasta, which my kids had, wasn't so great. My daughter had chilies... More

Vapiano looks nice, with an open layout, heavy woods, and welcoming hostess. But the positive surprises end there. The first problem is that it has "stadium seating". It is nice to go wherever one wants, but then the customer is trapped by needed to leave coat or bag at the table to reserve it versus standing in line for 10... More

In the summer, this location is packed and it can be challenging to find a seat. This is a routine destination for us and we've never had anything we haven't liked, from their pizzas to their custom made to order pastas. On our last visit they had a chestnut soup that was delicious. For good, filling, reasonable, freshly prepared Italian... More

When we first got here we were very confused by how the restaurant worked. The staff however was very friendly and willing to help. A couple of us ordered pasta. They allowed me to make a substitution and gave suggestions. All of the dishes were delicious. The pizza however was not very flavorful. We went for an early dinner so... More

These restaurants are pretty consistent; order pasta and sauce in the line. You get hot food cooked to order, but you wait on yourself (cafeteria style restaurant). Prices are average.
