Diner Reviews
  • "I am sure it was just Arlington on a Sunday evening, but it was eerily quiet. The food was great and service was very good although the waiter more or less just ran in response to our requests as opposed to engaging us and selling us the amazing menu and food. He was fine. There was a private dining room off to the side and that had a party in it so perhaps on a quiet Sunday evening, they could put a small party in front of the window in the main room to make the room feel fuller? Quality and presentation of the food, which is why any of are there to begin with, was terrific!"

  • "After leaving Arlington National Cemetery, my family and I wanted a quiet place for a nice lunch and cityhouse was it! It was a quick drive, away from mobs of tourists, and at lunch it was quiet. The free garage parking was a plus."

  • "Bistro sliced steak and veggie plus dessert. It's VERY delicious! You people come here while you enjoy here with your beverage and your dinner!"

  • "The food menu was very limited and needs to be expanded before I make a return trip. I had the blackened salmon and it was about a quarter of the size that I get at two other restaurants that I dine at, plus it was $5 more here. Also, the dishes (cups in particular) wasn't thoroughly cleaned because I was able to see the grease in the hot cup of water that. Improvements can be made. Still an okay place though."

  • "We chose Cityhouse because the larger farewell ceremony was going to be too noisy and less intimate. Cityhouse did the trick. Nice ambience, good food, pleasant conversation. It all worked."

    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Given the menu and other reviews I read, I was expecting a little more out of this place. The staff was very nice and the dinning area was nice and clean. The main issue I had was the food, if I'm going to pay $15 for eggs and sausage I expect a little more than what I can make for myself at home. Other than being a little underwhelmed with the food it's a decent place, just a little over priced for what you get."

  • "The food at Cityhouse was delicious. Starting with the Tuna Poke and the Crab and Spinach Dip, we were already impressed. My entree was the pan roasted trout and it was cooked beautifully. Served with a berry and lemon risotto, I was impressed with the complexity of the flavor. My stepmother's lobster mac and cheese was good, but felt it was missing something. And my father got their steak - cooked exactly as ordered. The service was attentive. But the entire restaurant was empty - leaving me with the feeling that something was amiss. I would have liked to see it during a lunch rush or at peak hours. Overall, a good pick. "

  • "City House is a safe bet for a professional dinner or lunch. This was my second visit and I would go again. Service is excellent and the ambiance is just right (between private and informal). Food was a disappointment this time. Anyone who wants to charge $19 per crab cake better make them good. In this case, they were flat, small, greasy, salty and burned on the bottom. The waiter's sincere apology and offer of free desserts for me and my colleague made up for that only partially. But, anyone can have a bad night. Overall, I like it."

  • "My family and I went for brunch after Easter Sunday service. The food was fresh and very well prepared. There was variety in delicious food choices. The service was excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful. We each received a Mimosa as part of the meal. Parking was convenient. My group was very pleased and we will definitely return and will recommend the restaurant to others."

  • "My friend and I were there at 8 PM our RSVP. We ordered for grilled salmon with veggies and glass of wine. We enjoy it. It's kind of quite just two people at the Cityhouse Restaurant. That's funny! I'm suggestion you to come here at the Cityhouse Restaurant."

  • "I brought a group of business colleagues here after a Sunday afternoon meeting. I don't know whether it was because it was Sunday, or whether it was due to the size of our group (8), but we waited a very, very long time for our food. When it did finally arrive it was spectacular, as always, so I'm not sure what took so long. The restaurant was not crowded, so I'm not sure what the hold up was. They were very apologetic and did make it up to us by providing a beautiful selection of mini desserts compliments of the house. Would definitely go back again because this was not my usual experience, but some members of my party were definitely unhappy."

  • "Superbly prepared food and choices. Service was gracious, attentive, but not intrusive. Quiet setting, perfect for interesting table conversation. Complimentary valet parking helpful for Rosslyn location. Altogether, a wonderful, relaxed evening, with great food. We will be back, for sure."

  • "For 10 months in 2011-12 I stayed at the Hyatt at least 2x week. Every week I looked forward to the Cityhouse Salad with Chicken and on special occasions, I ordered the seafood. I've been away for a while and the menu has changed, and I assume the management as well. The only fish is now salmon. The hostess is unfamiliar with the menu and has no clue what anything tastes like or what people order. The servers seem peeved to basked about the food. And the food isn't what it once was. The salad no longer contains nuts or fruit, as the menu suggests, and this week, my chicken was dry, flavorless and unappealing. I can no longer encourage friends to join me here, and should I return it is only because it is convenient."

  • "My date and I were treated as if we were in our own private dining room with attentive yet discrete service. While the dining room filled up while we were there (we ate early for travel reasons), we did not notice a rise in the decibel level or a drop in service. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Portions were not huge but we didn't leave hungry. Three hour free valet parking."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "The food, wine and service were unexpectedly good, since the restaurant was all but empty on a Saturday night. Located in the Rosslyn Hyatt, this is a gem in a forgotten area at night in Arlington. I would go again or try it for lunch when I bet its full"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "We went there and found them cause some of the restaurants are closed. So, we ordered for French onion soupm bistro steak with veggies, and vanilla brulee. Those are very delicious yummy!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "We picked this place because we know many of the fun, yummy restaurants in the Arlington area but we were looking for a new experience and the reviews looked pretty good. The fact is that there are many other places in Arlington that have better food, wonderful service and are less expensive. The meal was $144 dollars for two people. That included 1 drink per person. I don't mind spending that money on a spectacular dinner but the food was average. Not bad, by any means, but not worth $70 per person. Lyon Hall, Tallula, Assaggi, Willows even Tachibana -- to name 5 choices are all better in the category of delicious. I am not affiliated with the food industry, in any way, except for the fact that I eat."

Food was fabulous and service was excellent. We were able to have an enjoyable and relaxing meal in plenty of time to catch the performance!"

  • "I ordered for glass of wine (PG), grilled salmon (medium), and Cityhouse salad. They're still delicious. I don't know how to cook for salmon. That is why I came here. Doctor told me to eat salmon two time every weekly cause it's very healthy. Service is very busy like a bee back & forth and tried to keep customers up, interesting. Lot of people here, whoa but I love it where I can watch those people!"

  • "Went for breakfast--the buffet was quite nice. Omelette preparation station with usual breakfast selections (eggs, meat, fruit, cereal, breads, etc.). Nicely laid out with attentive servers. A place for a business breakfast or for the casual diner. Stay in the hotel regularly and enjoy meals in this setting."

  • "We were 30 min early for our reservation and still waiting for 1 more person. We were seated, and the waiter brought our drinks, but then we never saw anyone again until the other guest arrived. It would have been great to have been offered a refill and/or bread while we were waiting. The view and ambience of the restaurant however made up for it, and the food was perfectly portioned for lunch."
