“Reston's salvation”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Until Mobil Land built this site, Reston was losing its appeal, particularly to the younger generation. Today, it's a vibrant 'restaurant mecca' and neat place to stroll around. Several good options for sipping a glass of wine, etc., and just watching the locals. Good programs too, throughout the year for both young and old.

“Reston Town Center”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

A wonderful place to shop, eat and wander around. The stores are upscale; restaurants are in all categories. There are sometimes fairs and festivals here on the weekend. Lots of free and convenient parking available. In good weather, it's fun to sit outside with a glass of wine and watch the people and swanky cars go by.

“Reston Towne Ctr Eats”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Lots of variety. Jacksons is part of the Great American Restaurant and has been a superb value til recently. Still seems to be the #1 place to go and hang. American Tap Room has upped its game and is closing fast. Its where I go as one can always get a table. Il Fornaio is great for Italian. Its Pricey. I dont like Mom Ami Gabi at all. Passion Fish is excellent, if you want fish. I detest the Clyde's here. Noisy and not as good as their Tyson's place. I had 3 awful experiences at McCormick & Shmick's but last outing was very good. I'd still pick their Tyson's location first. And, you've got Mexican, Pizza, Burgers, movie theater, etc. For us suburbanites, RTC is a good spot in a great location.

“Magical during winter w/holiday decorations”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

The Reston Town Center never disappoints. It's always beautifully decorated with great shops and restaurants. The newly renovated BowTie Cinema offers movies now with stadium seating. The Hyatt Regency Reston will display the annual Gingerbread Village with a train running through it. No need to deal with the traffic of Tysons mall during the holidays.

“Nicely Designed”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Love the design of the Town Center, it is a lot of fun to walk around. Definitely go for a meal if you are in the area, but not worth a special trip.
