Food was fantastic! We were encouraged to try some of everything offered and we did - even dessert. It was an exceptional meal for a pittance - a meal one usually only gets in a high class restaurant. The service was very good and it was enlightening to be able to talk with some of the students as well as the teachers. I can't wait to go again!
The food is delicious; service excellent. Dining at Open Table is a unique experience. I have been there twice. First time we ordered from the menu and the second time it was buffet. Loved everything no matter how it's served. I will return and will spread the word. See you all when you open for business again.
My friends and I were very impressed with the service and the food!!
My only compliant is that they need to keep track of reservations and
changes in reservation requests in a better manner!!
Truly enjoyed dining at 200 Monroe, where the FCC culinary students prepared and served a delicious and diverse menu. Our server Jared was very pleasant and efficient and gladly answered our numerous questions. The meal was better than some meals I have had at better restaurants. We look forward to going back next spring!! Kudos to the students, teachers and staff.
Great experience. The students take great pride in their work.
First time at restaurant but read all the reviews and was really excited for a great meal! Was not disappointed! Server, Jared, was friendly yet professional. Food was delicious! Dessert decadent! Wish it was open for dinner too! Looking forward to visiting Jared's Food Truck in Loudoun once he graduates in a few weeks!
Enjoyed wonderful meals at 200 Monroe twice. We look forward to next season. The food was first class and the service was professional and friendly.
Absolutely wonderful from beginning to end!! Our service was excellent and the food was fabulous!! We had the Alsatian Tart, Salad, Chicken Scallopini, Manicotti, and Beef Loin and they were all delicious! And then......came dessert! The flourless chocolate cake was to die for but the blackberry apple crisp with the homemade caramel ice cream was just incredible!! So very proud of our FCC students and staff and of course Elizabeth!! Hats off to all of you for a job well done!!!
Training operation for local community college. Food was good; dessert was a highlight. Staff friendly and mostly efficient ( clearing empty plates was a little slow)
This restaurant is a training experience for the local community college culinary school. We were very impressed with the taste and presentation of the food. The service was excellent. We will definitely go back again.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my 2 visits to this dining room and look forward to my next one! I love the fact that it's a teaching/learning environment for students, while the quality of the food is excellent. I will continue to "show it off" and "talk it up" to friends!
The food was excellent and attractively presented. Being seated where we could watch the final steps of preparation and plating, as well as interaction between the students and instructor was a plus. Reservations essential since the period it is open is brief.
Great food and good service. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I just wish it were open longer because it was booked and we had trouble getting a return reservation. I look forward to returning next year.
Had lunch at 200 Monroe for the first time the other day with some co-workers and it was outstanding!! We were greeted with friendly faces and shown to our table. Our waiter was awesome - very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. The food was delicious!! Some of the best asparagus I have ever had - cooked perfectly! And the best part was we were supporting a great program - the FCC Hospitality, Culinary, and Tourism Institute. I would definitely recommend this for everyone!
My husband and I enjoyed our lunch at 200 Monroe which was run by the Senior Culinary Students from FCC. We enjoyed meeting our waiter, Jared. He was very enthusiastic and personable. We loved the first course soup and the onion tart. The main course of crusted tuna and manicotti were both original and delicious. For my part, would have liked more herbs/ seasoning in fresh tomato sauce. My husband thought the crusting over-powered the tuna flavor just a little. My lemon tart for dessert was" to die for" as was the chocolate cake. Happy to see gluten-free and vegetarian options. Great Job students!!
