I've been a loyal fan for a couple years but lately the dining room is filled with smoke. On Friday, we left before we had even ordered because it was so bad. We mentioned it to staff and received a pretty irritating reply -- "What smoke?" The customers in front of us left too! Come on Cafesano's!!

I've been going here for the past 10 years or so since it opened. The quality of the food has remained consistently great throughout that time. There's now one in Sterling closer to where I live and we love to eat in and carry out all the same. Their signature salad and the shwarmas are my usual desires though I have been know to attack any and all leftovers from my family!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Reston. The food is great and the lake views are even better. They kebabs, pizza, pasta, and sandviches. I have tried all of them and they were all great. I usually go there during the middle of the day to avoid lunch and dinner crowds.

I’ve ordered from Cafesano twice now using door dash. I love their healthy chicken and steak kabaabs, they use quality meat, have generous portions and the price is right!
