I ordered take out for my family and waited 45 minutes for six hamburgers. I was willing to wait since I had heard so many good things. When I got home the complaints began pouring in. Every single hamburger was raw inside despite being ordered medium well. I had to finish cooking the burgers in the microwave and then reassemble... More

We enjoyed this small, intimate restaurant, friendly staff and unusual menu. The portions are small but adequate, and the menu items are truly creative. Scallops with basil ice cream? It works! Crispy fried okra with a Thai fish sauce? Ditto! Prices for lunch were very reasonable for such a well located and creative small bistro. We each had an appetizer/salad... More

The service was good and the food was creative and tasty. We ordered appetizers instead of an entree. The shrimp and grits had fresh okra and the sausage was venison with blueberries which was delicious. We will be back.

The chef uses fresh ingredients served in well-thought-out and unusual dishes.Prices are reasonable for something a little different. Scallops on risotto with a savoury icecream was a knockout. Parking is easy, though Route 123 is extremely busy.

After a little driving around, I found the cafe. It is a small place, 10 tables and I had called in advance to be sure to have a table. On Monday's, they have a special menu: a small plate, entree and dessert for $35.00 and bottles of wine are half price. I chose instead to try a few small plates.... More

Lunch special is a great value if you want it. Unfortunately they require everyone at the table to order it. I only wanted a salad but was forced to get something I really didn't want. I asked the server if it was spicy and she said no. I took it home and it's been in my refrigerator for two days.... More

I have been trying to get to this restaurant for over a year, ever since I stumbled across them on the way to Wolftrap on a Friday night (with no reservation) and they were booked. Every time I made plans, something would come up, but I finally made it! Yay! Had a lovely lunch. The service was perfect, wine selection... More

Our third visit last night. Each has been superb. The staff is exceptionally friendly. The food is creative and extremely well executed. Wine list is short, but presents several very interesting wines, all at reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit. Go for the food, and don't expect fancy decor or a great view--unless you enjoy watching cars on Rt. 123.

This is the best restaurants in Vienna. It a modern, inventive style as compared to Cafe Renaissance that is traditional European food. The food is excellent, with a new surprise--in a good way--every time we've gone there. The service is excellent. The setting is small and cozy. It is good for families or couples.

Vienna's Maple Ave.Restaurant (MAR) is on a busy street packed with strip malls and fast food restaurants (like much of Fairfax County). This building used to be Anita's (Tex-Mex) and the interior has had little upgrading other than paint. The menu is modern, short, very creative and you can hardly go wrong. There is a slight Asian slant to most... More
