“Absolutely wonderful place to live”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We found ourselves heading out of our somewhat sterile McLean neighborhood and heading west on the Dulles Toll Road to Reston more often than not for entertainment, so we finally got smart and moved into Town Center. It's one of the original "Town Center" type of developments---thanks to the creator of Reston for the concept and execution! and has a high density of great restaurants and interesting shops within a small area, making it pedestrian friendly. The concept is fabulous---high density in the town center but we are also right on the 44 mile W&OD rails-to-trails bike/hike/bridle path, so lots of nature surrounding this pseudo-urban suburban outpost. We generally park our cars after coming home from work and walk wherever we want to go in evening. (We can safely and easily walk to a Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Harris Teeter, and, yes, a Target) We've also found that our friends are usually more than happy to come visit us, which is convenient. Once the Metro finally opens, we'll probably find we put very few miles a year on the cars.

“We Love Reston Town Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Reston Town Center is a great place for date night, girl's night, meet up with friends for lunch, dinner, happy hour, shopping, movies, and entertainment. My favorites are Clyde's, Rio Grande, Red Velvet Cupcakery, and movies but there is a great variety for everyone. Since it opened we no longer need to trek to Fairfax, Arlington or DC for a change in scenery.

“Recreating old time village center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The Reston Town Center effectively recreates an earlier age town center with shops and restaurants. it is attractive for walking but with lots of free parking.

“St paddys day 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

started at Jacksons. three different areas to mingle. bartenders very friendly. live music in the street and plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. Very casual, leave your high heels at home. A must to go to if you are staying nearby.

“Classy, compact and clean.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

I arrived here on a Sunday afternoon to catch the end of what looked to be a decent St. Patty's Day celebration. Be warned that most of the shops clOse around 5 or 6pm on Sundays. The restaurants are all open though and there are a plethora of good eating options in all price ranges. It's a nice outdoor mall that is well-maintained and perfect for a jaunt if the weather is decent. The selection of stores is very commercial; Victoria's Secret, Ann Taylor, White House... Don't expect budget shopping. Do visit Ben and Jerry's if you've got a sweet tooth :)
