“Great experience....again and again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We had dinner here a few months ago...loved the scallop dish. Great ambiance, great service. My husband had a steak dish and was quite pleased. Overall one of our favorite places to go in Reston Town Center for good reason :)

The only con...the noise level. Must have something to do with the tin ceiling

“You know it's over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

And it is. Just a big kitchen that churns out average fare at high prices. Walk across the street better. Walk any direction better. Is the burger good. Sure but over price. Ditto on steaks. Just falls short and service is a b plus at best. They have great bread.

“Noisy, but good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We like the food here and the service is good. The only downsides are the noise, the crowds, and the tacky paper on the tables. Love the chocolate mousse; the oysters on the half shell are always fresh; great French onion soup; and wonderful pate.

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We got dressed up (I in a skirt and heels, with pretty jewelry, he in a jacket and cuff links on his dress shirt) and hoped we wouldn't feel overdressed. We didn't; we thought we were dressed just right (even though some people were dressed more casually). We went on a Monday night so the place was not crowded. We sat away from the bar, where the lights were low and the atmosphere was pleasant. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. This is the kind of place where, if you order a glass of wine, they let you taste it first to see if it meets with your approval. And all the food we ordered was delicious, from the ricotta and tapenade appetizer to the salads to the steaks to the chocolate tart dessert! If I am again in the area, I will definitely go to this classy restaurant again. I highly recommend it!

“A pleasant experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Had lunch today with 5 other family members including 2 children. The food was delicious, the service was timely and friendly, and the price was most fair. Good food and good service at a good price - what more could one want?
