  • Too salty!

    We wanted to like Tavern 64. We like Reston Town Center and like the farm to table concept. However, the execution wasn't up to the idea. We shared a smoked trout spread to start. Fairly tasty but way too salty. Then I had the short ribs. Tender, tasty BBQ sauce, but way too much salt. There were some good choices, though on the limited wine list.

    My wife and I went to Tavern 64 for our weekly date night. Despite being within the Hyatt, they are very much into local sourcing of ingredients and the menu was very nicely put together. I had the braised short ribs while my wife enjoyed the Seared scallops with bacon. Most excellent! Only shortcoming was a lack of more local wines. Also, the music in the restaurant was a little loud, but the staff was responsive in modifying the level. All in all, we enjoyed an excellent dinner!

    We had a party of 8 with only a 30 minute call ahead and were accommodated very nicely. The food came out quickly and was delicious! Of the 8 people, no one had a negative thing to say about their dish. The coffee was a little pricey, but other than that it was a great experience.

    A quiet corner in bustling Reston Town Center wher a good meal and quiet conversation coexist peacefully. Regionally-sourced and inspired fresh menu and attentive if somewhat unsophisticated service. Pretty room with reasonable prices and a surprisingly varied menu for a hotel dining room. Nice alternative to typical Town Center experience.

    We chose this restaurant over another because this one was much quieter. The breakfast foods were disappointing- overcooked and not very interesting. We had the egg white frittata, an omelet, and the scrambled eggs. Nothing seemed very fresh or inspired; perhaps it was the late hour (about 11:30). The coffee was way too strong. If we go back to Reston Town Center for brunch we will try a different restaurant.

    This was my first time dining at Tavern 64 and I was extremely impressed by the food. I loved that every menu item came from a locally sourced farm; it creates a very special dining experience. As outstanding as the food was, our server was extremely kind but could have been more attentive. Overall, I will definitely be returning and would recommend it to anyone looking for delicious food!

    the farm to table emphasis is in style and appealing and the ingredients seem to be superb but the food prep just doesn't quite make it. Other dining experiences are far superior. Too bad because Tavern 64 is pleasant, has a great location, and could be wonderful. The good news??? If you want to talk, it is about the only place in Reston where you can have a quiet meal.

    Met the friendly Chef Sean at an outdoor festival and after a brief discussion of his fare, how he buys locally and the excitement he exuded in talking about his menu we cancelled our other brunch plans and made them for Tavern 64. What a smart move we made - brunch was fantastic from the hard-to-find Corpse Reviver cocktail (made perfectly by the way), to the chicken and waffles and my wife's custom omelette, the meal was excellent, came out hot, on a warm plate and was the perfect size to fill us up but not make us pine for a 1pm nap. (that came later). Thank you the the staff and especially Chef Sean for loving your job and making us feel so welcome.

    I came here with my family to enjoy brunch and made reservations ahead of time since we were celebrating Father's Day. They nicely called the day prior to confirm our reservations and to let us know that our parking ticket at the Hyatt garage could be validated, if needed. There was no special Father's Day brunch menu, but it was great to see that the regular weekend brunch menu listed food source information from local vendors. I only wished there were more creative choices. The restaurant had decent ambiance. Spaces were wide enough for comfortable seating. Once the dishes arrived, the food itself felt underwhelming. Coffee refills were spotty. Our waiter was a bit unorganized and awkward.

    The luncheon menu is varied and focused on good sustainable food products from local vendors. It was good that our server pointed out the salad choices could be embellished with meats. Two of us chose the scallops on arugula salad. A very luscious taste treat and a plentiful serving that allowed satiety without being stuffed. Our third diner had the Caesar with chicken and was equally satisfied. The price for lunch was just right. We will return for lunch. Can't comment about other meals. We used a coupon acquired through the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival--nice to have the restaurant participate in the fundraiser for GRACE (Greater Reston Arts Center) with this thank you coupon.

    If this place wants to be more than your typical hotel restaurant doing room service for people that may not visit it ever again, they should try to be more creative. Visiting once is fine, food is good, but since the menu is quite limited, after 2nd or 3rd visit I have no reason to go back (it is not THAT good).

    I thought that tavern 64 would be a more exciting. Prices were high and food and drink were underwhelming. We got a few small plates. The meat and cheese plate needed more crustini. The Brunswick stew was very bland. I had a vegetarian roll for dinner and the portion size was good, but it could have had more flavor. Chocolate cheesecake was the best part. Very good cheese flavor, not as chocolaty as I thought it could have been.

    Would go back in a heartbeat. Was looking for a place to have a post-Law School grad dinner with my large family. Most of the typical DC places are such a pain to get to, and with my fiance being a Vegan, it's also kind of hard to find a nice place that suits us all. Tavern 64 offers variety, is hugely accommodating, and their staff was so friendly. They called to 1. make sure we would still be on time for our reservation (not in a rude way!) since it was a large party and 2. to see if it would be a special occasion or just a casual gathering. I mentioned that it was, indeed, a special day and they did their best to make it a celebration for us! And their vegan fare is creative, not just boring salads, soups, or pastas! Bonus? Vegan cake!

    Tavern 64 has a nice vibe, is quite pleasant, prices are very reasonable and they have a good assortment of wines and beers. The one thing it could improve upon is some lighter fare. We've been twice and both times thought that the menu would be enhanced with something lighter on the menu. There are interesting choices, but not much in the way of less heavy food. At our last visit, I ordered the scallops and you would think that with just 3 scallops on the plate that it wouldn't be very filling, but the scallops sit on top of thickly cut bacon and cheesy grits. I could only eat part of my meal. I'm not giving up on this place, but I'm hoping next time there will be something in addition to beef stew, bison burgers, etc.

    A diner feel to the place unlike the pics on their website which look trendy. Upon arrival for our reservation, no table was set up and a chair was pulled up to the end of a 4 top to accommodate our party of 5. - The salmon benedict was very dry. - I could not taste the maple in the maple sausage gravy on the chicken and waffles. The gravy was salty and left you craving something sweet. - The bison burger and side salad was delicious and fresh. - In the Tavern Mary, the taste of the worcestershire sauce took over and it was "beefy" tasting and hard to finish. The waiter checked in often but always rushed off before we could ask for anything. Sodas are not on the menu and are $4 which seemed steep for the venue.

    The restaurant was a nice place to hang out for a few hours and catch up with friends. The food was not bad. It was not stellar either. Same with the service. It was not bad, but it was not stellar. The food is interesting. There are some new twists on dishes and the food is supposed to be locally sourced. I would go again, but it is not a place I am dying to go back to. If you are at the Reston Town Center and your favorite spot is booked and the wait is too long, then Tavern 64 is a decent alternative.

    In all fairness, our party of 5 all ordered omelettes, all completely different. When they arrived to the table, they were all placed in front of us incorrectly (it would be hard for me to know which was which based on looks alone). It wasn't until we started eating that we realized we all go the wrong plate. Frankly, I could probably have made a better omelette in the comfort of my home. But, I'm sure omelettes aren't the place to showcase culinary talent. Our server was wonderful. He had stepped away to the restroom when our food arrived, so wasn't able to oversee delivery. But, he humbly attempted to make up for it as much as possible ---- checked in often, made recommendations, offered additional food. I would recommend with caution.

    Staff totally ignored or forgot previously made arrangements for birthday celebration. Despite calling in advance with a birthday notification and informing a staff member when we arrived no one seemed aware of the occasion. At the end of the meal I had to tell our server twice and it created an awkward situation. The server said he didn't know.
