Such a fun atmosphere. Great staff, great food.
Our party of 5 all had different dishes and they were all outstanding. The food is among the best you will find in the DMV.
Fantastic food, very accommodating wait staff. The decor is gorgeous, will definitely be back.
Going to cafe renaissance is an experience! My husband and I had the best time! We celebrated our anniversary there, and they gave us a wonderful dessert to commemorate. Expect to spend a long time there, with some long waits, but if you want to take it slow and enjoy your dinner and date, this is the spot. Food, once ordered, comes out quickly and is delicious! We will definitely be going back on our next anniversary ❤️
Nice environment, relatively intimate, great food, generous wine pour, well spaced tables for COVID-19 compliance, outside dining option if you need it. We like to go there for special occasions. Prices are reasonable considering the quality of food and service.
The food at Cafe Renaissance is delicious, unsurpassed. The chateaubriand for 2 was expertly prepared, as was the salmon. The restaurant has a lovely Old World charm. Unfortunately on this visit there were large gaps in the service making for a very long evening. Hopefully not the norm.
Great ambiance and awesome service. The food was excellent.
We had the most delicious and delightful dinner here on Friday June 11 2021. The food was perfection and the sauces incredible. The service was impeccable too. We were celebrating a birthday and were given a great extra dessert course. This place is remarkable. We will be back when we are in VA. Hidden gem.
It’s a beautiful dining room with an interesting menu and great service.
Nice little hidden gem. Nice people and great food.
Excellent meal in a nice setting. Waitress gave us some desert items seemingly in honor of our anniversary.
Beautiful night for a wonderful dinner outside. We went with the tasting menu that was a huge amount of wonderfully prepared food. Apps, fish course and meat course with a trio of desserts. Already making plans to return.
Took our out of town family for our son's high school graduation celebration. The cuisine was delicious and service was efficient and welcoming. Thank you for making my son's celebration an extremely enjoyable one.
The owner was excellent. He took time to talk to each table and ensured everyone had a wonderful evening! So thankful for the entire staff they made my brother graduation a wonderful celebration! Would recommend this place to anyone looking for good food and pleasant evening!
What a nice find. We moved to Vienna during COVID-19. Now that we are vaccinated and restaurants are reopening, we are exploring our new neighborhood. We discovered Cafe Renaissance through OpenTable. It does look like much from the outside, but inside, it is a classic French restaurant. My wife had the escargot and the short ribs, our friend had the lamb shank and I had the duck confit. All were served on fabulous dishes with vegetables. Our only regret was that we were too full for dessert or the Irish coffee. One more thing. They have an excellent wine list at reasonable prices.
Our first post-pandemic dining event to celebrate an anniversary and Cafe Renaissance was a great choice! Great food, wonderful service and just a grand overall experience.
Our recent return to Cafe Renaissance, after the covid crisis, was like coming home. Family and I have been there quite a few times, always with a sense of pleasure and satisfaction. It's old world hospitality writ large.
Wonderful good and service. A hidden gem in Vienna for a special day occasion.
Excellent service. Excellent food. Nice atmosphere. Just lovely.
Food was perfect. We couldn't decide between the filet and scallops....he made us a surf and turf. Fabulous . Baked oysters for appetizer was so delicious
The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Super satisfied.
Always good food, good service. The owners are very friendly and aim to please their patrons.
Delightful traditional-type French restaurant - very nice Mother's Day price-fixe menu.
Just had our 17th anniversary there and Saied and team were awesome as always! Great food and fantastic experience.
This was my first time visiting and it was a wonderful experience. The food, service, ambiance, everything was outstanding! Totally loved the background music. I would highly recommend for a romantic evening!
Service and the food were outstanding. The selections on the menu were excellent
This is our favorite restaurant! Welcoming, personalized service and excellent food! Perfect for special occasions! We highly recommend Cafe Renaissance !
We almost never eat out but wanted to start to do so and found a recommendation in the WaPo for the Cafe Renaissance. The outside is unprepossessing but inside it is to be transported into another world! Old world charm, paintings, mirrors. Saeed and wife Soroya provided wonderful service. The food was delicious, classic french, plentiful. Highly recommend
CR never disappoints. Their service is personable and friendly. The food is always delicious. Saeed, the owner recognizes his patrons and is attentive to their needs. CR is always at the top of my list.
Great food, friendly reception, and outstanding service. A fun place to go for the best meal in town.
My wife and I both throughly enjoyed the surf and turf. We liked the attention given by our the host. Great ambiance!
Like an old fashioned French Restaurant. Lots of artwork, beautiful china, beautiful furnishings, crisp white tablecloths and delicious food. My test when I'm trying a new restaurant is based on their Caesar Salad: it was fresh, and the dressing was homemade and perfect. My husband had the lamb shank which was falling off the bone and very flavorful and I had the Filet Mignon which was perfectly cooked. We will definitely be back.
EVERYTHING - Outstanding !! Food, atmosphere. service all of it !
Simply wonderful restaurant - impeccable & personal service and amazing cuisine.
Very nice place - cozy, quiet, European style decor and ambiance, perfect for a small family celebration or a romantic dinner. Superb chef, nice music, excellent service.
Always a warm welcoming when arriving at Cafe Renaissance along with outstanding food and service!
When I'm looking for a retreat from today's madness, I can always count on an old style local restaurant w/good food, service, Which has set up outdoor seating during the pandemic. A great default (even though it can be a bit pricy). Reservations helpful, dinner hours might be earlier than posted.
Everything was outstanding. This place does not disappoint
Top notch food and very friendy staff. We had a wonderful time.
