Do not be surprised if the chef comes out to ask if you are happy with the selection or can he suggest something not on the menu that he will make for you.

For continental food in Northern Virginia, this is definitely where you want to go. The atmosphere is warm, romantic even, the service is first rate and the food is most excellent. It is kind of hidden in the back of a strip mall, but lots of people have found it so you definitely need reservations. The four of us tried... More

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at Cafe Renaissance. Everything was absolutely superb. Service was spot on -- attentive but not overbearing. The food was delicious (far superior to several French restaurants in Old Town Alexandria). The owner also stopped by for a friendly chat, as it was not busy early on a Tuesday evening. Because it was... More

If you desire a personalized dining experience, Cafe Renaissance seeks your presence. Each visit is personally catered to your individualized dining experience. Absolutely no other restaurant offers these specialized options. Restaurant owner Saeed and Chef Ocean Joseph make each dining event something extremely special. Very romantic setting and also superb for upscale private business luncheons and dinners.

Went to Cafe Renaissance for Easter, but have been to the restaurant to for other occasions. This restaurant takes me back in time. It's small, quaint and the quality of service was outstanding especially on Easter Sunday. I've always had good dining experiences in this restaurant. I feel welcomed. The food consistently delicious.

From the proprietors warm greeting to an extensive menu easily personalized to unexpected amenities, over last decade this local gem has continued to improve. While the walls are lined with art & small plaques of frequent patrons, the staff is thoughtful. You can breeze in and out or linger at will. Good wine list and full bar. Highly recommended

Stopped in with the hubby for dinner. The atmosphere and decor is very charming, very European. The staff is very efficient, and pleasant. The food is good, but not great. Entrees range in price from high teens to $50 or so. They also have small plates which is nice if you aren't really ready for a full meal. Has a... More

My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary using a gift certificate and had no expectations.... We will be returning! The owner and staff are as friendly as can be- they made us feel so welcome and were very attentive to our needs throughout the evening.
