“Excellent and Innovative Takes on Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

This was a great find -- consistent with the quality of the other establishments in this family of restaurants. We enjoyed the interesting Italian dishes - their "deconstructed" Lasagna, the absolutely exquisite flounder - both spurred a return visit!

I absolutely stuffed (an unfortunate 2 pound gain when I returned home)!

The service was very attentive - the staff friendly, and just right with suggestions and advice...

We would definitely return on our next trip to the area!

“always enjoy this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

I have been here once for brunch and most recently following our son's graduation. We expected long waits everywhere but our large party was seated immediately. Out waiter was attentive and the food delivered promptly. Everything was delicious and good memories made by all.

“Another truly great Great American Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Ozzie's is the 5th of the Great American Restaurants that I have tried (Coastal Flats is another). I have never had a bad experience in any of their restaurants and Ozzie's is no exception. Friendly and attentive staff, comfortable atmosphere and delicious food. They had an artichoke appetizer as their special and we cleaned up every drop. The rib eye was so tender it practically melted in your mouth. You can't forget the Ozzie rolls though! Yum!!!

“Excellent each time I come here! Great service and nice ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Ozzie's is in the Fairfax Corner shopping center in Fairfax County, VA. It is a restaurant that is a part of the Great American Restaurant chain. I have eaten here 4 or 5 times. Each time the food is delectible and the service is supurb. The ambience is tastefully done in an Italian motif. This time I had the crabcakes with a glass of Chalone wine. The crabcakes come with 2 sides and substitution to other sides is very easy! Try this place. If you don't want to eat dessert here you can go around the corner to Ben & Jerry's. Also, spread out your lunch by having coffee at Caribou which is less than a block from Ozzie's in the Fairfax Corner shopping center. Ozzie's has wonderful food. On two occasions I have had LaSagna that was excellent in taste and generous in portion.

“Good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

I have been here a couple times and found it to be very good. It is a part of the great American restaurants organization. Locally that is Jackson's, coastal flats, sweet water grill, etc. all have a similar style to the restaurants but with a different food origin. This is good Italian. The calamari, aracini, and meatball sliders are all very good appetizers. I have had the rigatonis as main dish and they are great. The salads look great. This a large place that can be loud. They have a large adjoining bar, and some outside seating. It is located in trendy Fairfax corner.
