The service was great but I was disappointed that I found the hair in my entree...
Prices are a little high for lunch but normal for dinner. They vary from about $18-$30 a plate for an entree. The service was great and the waiter was really
The experience was wonderful. We dine here for all of our special occasions. The food was great. The chef has such a special way of preparing the food and takes great pride in the dishes. The restaurant is so beautiful the owner is so gracious and friendly. The Nougat Glace’ is out of this world!
Amazing staff amazing service !
Best restaurant for dates and business in virginia
OpenTable would not allow a reservation for 1. Though I knew where and when I wanted to eat. And I spent enough for two anyway. Great fallback restaurant, if you can get in.
My wife and I had an early anniversary, and we wanted to try something new. We really enjoyed this place, and ate something from every course.
We are regulars at Cafe Renaissance because of their excellent food. However our last visit was a particular treat because they have introduced a new dessert menu. We were given a sampler. They have a nougat glacé with meringue and pistachios which was spectacular and unusual. The raspberry bomber was great. Looking forward to trying out more of the new desserts.
Always a special treat. The food, service, and hospitality are outstanding!
Our group of four enjoyed the fish and veal they ordered for mains, and we all had excellent salads for starters. Two of us shared chateaubriand which was good but lacked a desired level of taste and tenderness. The atmosphere and service were also very good. A local gem worthy of returned visits.
Traditional French menu items. Attentive waiters in tuxedos. Decor from Belle Époque Paris. Classic or dated? It’s for you to decide.
We have been to Cafe Renaissance several times and it never disappoints. The service is excellent, and the food is superb. I had pompano almandine and my husband had flounder topped with crabmeat. We finished our meal with Irish coffee, which was prepared right at our table. So much fun to watch!
It's becoming rare to find a local dining establishment that still has tablecloths, great food, and good service. Unlike some steak houses where you have to shout to be heard across the table, this place is quiet enough to carry on a civilized conversation at whisperable levels. The menu (not too small and not too large) has such a selection of goodies that one must come back to try other delicacies. Narrowing the choices is tough. However, a default desert must be one of their souffles. They just evaporate in one's mouth. Amazing! Regrettably, a tad bit pricey for the common man to visit on a weekly basis.
Delicious food in an elegant classic environment, surprisingly located in a strip mall location. A real gem.
I found this restaurant online and was able to get a reservation for two at the last minute. I was pleasantly pleased with the food, the service, and at the ambience.
Wife’s birthday! Great place, great food! Get a dessert soufflé from the chef! If you haven’t been GO! You won’t be disappointed.
We have been to the Café Renaissance several times and the food, service and atmosphere has is always outstanding. This recent visit didn't disappoint. A remarkable hidden gem that is worth the search
Had a delightful lunch at Cafe Renaissance. Excellent food and service - and a surprisingly quiet venue. Will definitely go again.
The staff was a lot of fun! Enjoyed the seabass, and the wine selection was good as well.
Great dinner, service and ambience! We were welcomed warmly and had great menu choices!
We have always had excellent service and a wonderful dining experience. The staff makes every customer feel valued. They also had in little extras to make every evening special.
Charming wait staff and wonderful food. It is like a walk back in time with a traditional neighborhood fee that has been there for a long time... and for good reason.
Cozy, good food, excellent service, most attentive staff and a lovely setting. Parking is very convenient.
We have never been disappointed by any of our visits to Cafe Renaissance. The food, service, and atmosphere are superb, and for a fine dining experience, the price paid is well worth the value received!
Wouldn’t go back .
Went to the barns of Wolf Trap
Excellent! Romantic location. Tables were meticulously decorated with linen, fresh flowers, and candles. The entire staff was impeccably dressed and very nice. Our server, JB, was extremely nice and checked back just enough for us to order new items and enjoy our romantic dinner. Food was delicious! All the courses were plated nicely. We ordered the Caesar salad, avocado with crab meat, veal, ribeye, and chocolate cake. Drinks were also excellent. Music played in the background at a very nice volume. We could hear the music and have a conversation without having to raise our voices. Plenty of parking in the front or back. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or just to enjoy a really good dinner without being rushed.
Awesome experience and the atmosphere created more magical moments for all!
Excellent food with unique presentation! Staff were very courteous and professional. Cost was a bit pricey but OK for a special occasion such as Valentine's Day. Would definitely recommend Cafe Renaissance to my friends and work associates.
Wayyy over priced and underwhelming. The pasta (homemade?) seemed like they ran out of salt and boiled it in milk. Literally the only thing I ate on the lobster plate was the actual lobster. Nothing else was worth eating. The cake dessert was obviously frozen, because it was STILL PARTIALLY FROZEN when they delivered it.
I’m really not hard to please, never write bad reviews, and this was just abysmal.
The chef did come out to our table to see how things were, but instead of asking how our experience was going he just made an odd comment about my outfit.
Overall we had high hopes, and it was horrible valentines experience. If we spend $300 on a meal for two, we expect a much higher standard.
This was our second visit and it will definitely not be our last. Each visit was memorable. Outstanding selection, exquisitely prepared, calm atmosphere, outstanding service, European ambiance.
First visit and the food was incredible and creative. Nose level was amazingly low for so many patrons who were all engaged in conversation. I would return again.
Retuarant personnel are very personable and try to make you feel at ease. Food we had was delicious.
In our 20 years living in Northern Va, Cafe Renaissance is still our favorite restaurant in the area. The food is always delicious and the owner, Sayeed, has an impeccable way of making guests feel welcome.
Excellent as always. Very much a pleasure to go there, every time.
Awesome food, service and environment. Especially nice when the chef came over and sat and talked with us...everything and everyone was perfect...
The staff at Cafe Renaissance always meet the highest standards in every facet of the dining experience.
Sunday brunch (which we enjoyed this visit)) or a special occasion—. We are always treated as valued customers and the food is delicious
This has become our favorite restaurant for special occasions. Everything from the food to the service to the staff to the ambience was absolutely first rate. We truly felt we were honored guests. I could not recommend more highly!
My friend and I celebrated her birthday at Café Renaissance. The ambiance was perfect. It was quiet so we could carry on a conversation with ease. The service was excellent; great food suggestions. The food was incredible. We had a cup of delicious soup followed by salmon with a mustard cream sauce and a variety of vegetables. It was perfect. The rum cake with cinnamon ice cream was an incredible way to end the meal. We plan on bringing our friends to a high tea. There is a tea the last Saturday of every month. We can’t wait! I highly recommend this local secret! You won’t be disappointed.
