Where to begin? Poor service, over-salted bread loaf, cold (meant to be hot) appetizers, cold entrees, AWFUL water-downed drinks (martinis), clueless staff who kept getting orders wrong (even other tables), and patrons asking to speak to management - at least twice that we overheard! I wasn't expecting Michelin star quality food, but edible? Hot maybe? Remotely tasty? Edible, even? Instead,... More

Food is always good, not great, at this national francise outlet near the Reston Town Center. The RTC is a short walk where many options and a movie theater are available. Menu prices and Service are also good with a variety of drink options.

What happened to this restaurant? It used to be dependable...and a great place to go with kids. This time the flatbread was charred and the lasagne rubbery. There were only a few tables occupied but still the service was slow and "inattentive". Sorry to say--tonight was our last visit.

Romano's Grill is one of the restaurant that you can typically count on for a good/descent meal while you're traveling on the road. No different here....had a nice lunch, good service and a pretty deal for the bucks. Like any other restaurant....busy times you will have to wait. No complaints.

Service was excellent. We went on a Friday night around 5:00 PM. The food was good. We enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms. The Italian Bake is huge. We took half of it home. It was a fun night.

The worst food eaten in the USA. It has no taste at all. But what we expected after the nice atmosphere and the over average prices! Never again!

The food is first rate. However, service is slow. And, the later the evening, the slower the service. Also, the lighting is uneven making it hard to read the menu at some tables...

If you wish to eat at this location make sure you have a couple of hours for the meal. Because we had an event to go to, two of us had to use take out for our meals because, after an hour wait, our meals still had not arrived. Clearly a management/service problem. Once the food arrived it was just... More

This restaurant has improved so much in the last year that it our favorite place to go for a great family meal. The appetizer selection is unique and well prepared. Main courses and salads are creative and of fine quality. Service is attentive, prompt and professional. The honor wine program is unique. Diners mark on the paper tablecloth how many... More
