A very trendy and upbeat 1940's style dinner house with two bars. Jackson's has a wonderful nostalgic decor. There is an outdoor bar, which was very crowded. The inside was just as crowded and once again the noise level in here was terrible. So I was glad we decided not to eat in here. Yet, the aroma was pleasing.
We stopped here to enjoy a dessert since the experience at the Big Bowl was terrible. This place cheered me right up. Great ice cream, but the only complaint is it is too expensive. Not something I would splurged on often. Still it was yummy!
We met some of my sisters friends here for a farwell meal. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. "But" the noise level in this restaurant was terrible, plus it was in the middle of summer and it was so hot and not one fan to be had within the main restaurant. So I didn't really enjoy the meal because it was too loud and to hot inside.
This cozy restaurant seemed to cater to the Washington DC crowd, off duty. It was very busy but the wait wasn't long, and the food was well worth it!
The name has changed since I was there, but the location is the same. The most important change is the style. Now, it offers an American cuisine in keeping with the idea of "local pub," scene than a seafood restaurant. It changed hands a few years after my visit and I've heard mixed opinions about it. I wonder if the more negative comments have more to do with the change in style than anything else. So, though I haven't been here since the change of command, I'd still suggest that it would be worth a visit to the bar section and meet a few locals. Come in during Happy Hour, have a light meal and test the flavor of the food offered before deciding to stay for dinner.
They now have live music on the weekends and children are not allowed there after 7 pm.
Favorite Dish: Shrimp, tender and very delicious.
The menu has changed but they still offersome seafood. They just don't focus on it so much now.
Like every Starbucks nationwide, one expects the basics; coffee, tea, pastries, amenities like sugar, spices, creamer. Most Starbucks have coffee on sale, cups, coffee and tea mugs as well as sandwiches and soft drinks.
What was rather odd in Reston was that I saw an inside seating area that barely fit 4 people. The outdoor seating was really nice, but also limited to less than 8 people. It was rather humid and hot, bust the brisk air blowing made it bearable.
Mark ordered a black coffee, while Desire took a frappuccino. So if you have a craving to coffee or tea, you have a place to fill that craving.
The Cincinnati Café presents the finest in hearty, tasty American cuisine. The elegant atmosphere and friendly mid-western congeniality make a perfect setting for the enjoyment of a genuinely delicious meal. With a heated outside patio dining, the Cincinnati Café is unquestionably the best kept secret in Reston.
Favorite Dish: Good friendly crowd at the bar, and Guiness is served! Want something thicker- have a Bushmill!
I believe this is the only Primo Italiano location. Support the local (non-chain) merchants!! In addition to the restaurant, they sell relatively hard to find Italian food specialty items. They have their own delivery service, usually very reliable and quick. They have nightly and monthly specials.
Favorite Dish: Chicken Napolitana - great deal for about $10. Penne with a spicy sauce and a generous amount of grilled chicken. Topped with grated parmesan. A couple of pieces of garlic toast on the side.
