I would prefer that there is a split check option. We had a table of 6 and were only allowed to split 4 way.

everything we ordered was great. i didn’t love the long cafeteria-style table they seated our party of 3, but it was pretty quiet so i wasn’t going to make a big deal out of it. just something to note for next time. other than that, the service and the food was all great. will definitely be back.

The experience was solid as normal with good service and good food. The chef checked in with the one minor issue. We'll definitely be back. You should try it if you've never been.

Wes, as always, was outstanding. In addition, Lance (Chef) always greets us and takes very good care of us. Lastly the Manager is always consistent in ensuring our needs are met. Overall, dinner was outstanding based upon the service and taste of the food.

Food and service were good. Enjoyed the Smoked Cheese Crab soup and Grilled Cheese Benedict. Mentioned on the reservation that it was our friend's birthday who was visiting from out of town, would have been nice if they acknowledged it with a candle or something. Good drink selection and Bourbon list, have had very good bar service in the past.

It was a perfect evening for al fresco dining. While there were no tables available outside (and you basically have to go up to the bar to order, which would not have worked for us for dinner), we were given a table that was next to the open bar, so it worked for us. We started with drinks (I had the Lavender and Rosemary (I think?) cocktail, which I enjoyed, but reminded my husband of household cleaners.). We ordered the hearth pretzel and trio of dips, which we all enjoyed. I had the salmon with the Brussels sprouts and it was cooked very well (I took home half of the Brussels sprouts as it was such a big portion.), my husband ordered the eggplant meatballs and enjoyed that. Our friends ordered the Delmonico steak (delicious, but on the fattier side) with the tater tots and the baby back ribs (meat falling off the bone, just as she wanted) and mac and cheese (very yummy). the other couple shared the key lime pie, which definitely satisfied a craving. Service was friendly and efficient and the decor is industrial, but with the open doors toward the plaza, the noise level was very comfortable. We would definitely go there again.

We were unfortunate to experience our server’s unfortunate day. Food orders were wrong, lack of utensils, she disappeared - we simply went w the flow due to time.

Food was good, service was very average and the restaurant wasn't overly busy at the time we were there. It was very loud so hard to hear conversations with your guests.

The value of this place shines through for Happy Hour. We went on a Friday night during a Holiday weekend, so it's fair to say the place was busy and service may have been slower because of this. Our server, Eric was very nice, but was just pulled in multiple directions. There were some problems with the food ordered or extra items needed, but once we got served that was pretty much the last we saw of any of the servers until the bill came. I will say the Happy Hour options are great (and priced well). For apps we did the 72hr Pork Belly (not a HH special - but really good), Pretzels, and Tots. I got a the Hot Chicken Entree that was essentially chicken and waffles, but with french toast (imo it would be better with a waffle because the bread gets soggy easily). The one issue we had was our table, while we had a few kids, they placed out near the bar area and opening to the outside seating, because of this it was really chaotic and they couldn't pull down the sun shades because servers had to keep walking by (nit-picking here, but why have them if you can't use them?) Overall, I'd say a 7/10

It was a Friday night and per usual it was pretty busy. Had a great experience overall and loved the food. They never disappoint. But tonight the server rushed us throughout the whole meal. Overall a great experience but wish we hadn’t had to tell the server that we were just enjoying the appetizers for the moment 3 times.

It’s very loud- probably better suited for happy hours. Menu was a little odd, had trouble deciding what to order. Just didn’t have much flavor. The bright spot was the cheese board- that was really enjoyable!

I love the setup of B&B....a contemporary twist on "industrial chic" with a garage door opening that leads to the Tysons Corner Center Plaza. Huge selection of beer flights and the food is fresh and delicious. I personally love the seared tuna salad (and all the salads!), and the pork belly is a definite crowd pleaser. Great spot for a business breakfast or lunch. Happy hour is a scene...one of the #1 hot spots in Tysons for sure! Everyone treats us so well every time we go, and I highly recommend a visit.

We called ahead to ask that our reservation please be changed to 5 instead of 4 for a special occasion. The host refused and said we would have to sit on the patio. Upon checking in, the young man who seated us had no problem accommodating 5. The service was rushed and not at all personal. When B&B opened 4 years ago, it was a place our family would go often and for special occasions, now, it is just another mediocre hotel restaurant. No longer special and no longer on our list as a go-to. Makes me sad because we have celebrated many happy occasion there.

We took our kids out for a quick Friday night dinner after running errands in the mall. It was packed with Friday Happy Hour goers. Food was pretty, if not correct. The roasted broccoli was very hard to eat and undercooked.

The noise was fine because we had two little boys, but it would not have been a pleasant place for a date or trying to talk.
