A good place to have group business meetings. Food is not the center of the experience. It could have been, but the quality of the food is slightly better than average.

Fantastic place - even for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner with the family. Great atmosphere, classy. Waiters very quick and pleasant. Food is very good, a favorite place to eat in Reston, especially for special occasions.

Happy hour Wednesday is a good deal. You get oysters for a buck a piece and reduced price drinks. Service was nice but our orders came out slow. The oysters were "tiny" and one shell didn't have meat at all. Flavors were good and still with the trip. Recommend filling up on shrimp to round out the meal.

So many healthy choices here but if you are a steak fan this is the place to go! They make your steak to order

The food was decent but definitely missed a wow factor. It missed the presentation but most of all that flavor after which you go; wow! Especially when I look at the what the food ended up costing the price/performance level is certainly off, sorry to say.

Came in during the slow period after lunch before dinner. It's a pricey restaurant. We had a great server. Loved our shrimp and steak.

Waited 50 minutes to be seated from the time of my initial reservation time. The staff were overwhelmed by all the people on Valentine's Day. It was very mismanaged. It was like the staff was randomly selecting to seat guests regardless of how long folks were waiting. We were all waiting in the large lounge. No drinks were passed out... More

After our third visit experiencing cold food, we decided to stop going. Management did follow up. The service is very good, as is the quality of the food. However, they appear to have a problem ensuring the food is hot when it reaches the table.

Wish we'd gotten one of the tables with curtains that let you and your dinner companions have complete privacy a la Godfather films. The seafood is fine. Service was lovely.
