We had a lovely time at Cafe Renaissance. The food was excellent (lamb and veal entrees) We were given complimentary desserts to go with the flaming Irish coffees we ordered. So much fun and wonderful friendly staff.
Excellent food and the service by Saeed and his coworkers was exceptional as always. The Irish Coffee is a great ending!
Love this restaurant. Wonderful food and owner is terrific.
Amazing food and amazing service! I can’t wait to go back.
Service was superb, as was our food! We are looking forward to returning very soon!
Wonderful Wonderful ambience great service excellent food. Went for my wife’s birthday and it was a wonderful success would take to this again and use it as one of our favorites
Good food, excellent service, friendly atmosphere. The owner greets everyone and makes sure they feel comfortable. He makes the customer feel special. I would highly recommend this place to everyone
Café Renaissance is our “go to“ place for a special evening, and they never disappoint!
Great place, particularly to celebrate a special occasion.
Café Renaissance has always been our go-to place for celebrations. I cannot say enough good things about the food and the ambience. No restaurant has ever felt as welcoming as Café Renaissance.
Entertaining out of town family at Cafe Renaissance was a fantastic experience for our guests. The interior was lovely with soft music, fresh flowers and quiet for carrying on a conversation. The drinks, food and dessert was five star quality and enjoyed by all. Would highly recommend Cafe Renaissance
Very nice restaurant. Fun decor. Menu plebeian except for tack side bananas foster, cherries jubilee & Irish coffee. Wine menu is adequate but for the unsophisticated. Food was well prepared. Would go again but not the level of DC’s best.
Our family group had the most wonderful dining experience. Cafe Rennaissance is our favorite restaurant for special occasions. Saeed Abtahi, his wife and staff truly outdo themselves every time we come here to eat. The food is delicious with spectacular presentation. Mrs. Abtahi makes the most beautiful and best tasting desserts. We look forward to coming back to Cafe Rennaissance as soon as possible.
I've eaten at Café' Renaissance several times. The food is always delicious and the service top notch! It's one of the very best French restaurants in the area. There is a fairly extensive menu and wine list. All of your French favorites. Saed is a VERY gracious host and his tableside preparation of Irish Coffee is not to be missed! Highly recommended!
Another wonderful evening enjoyed at Cafe Renaissance. Although the restaurant was quite full the conversation level remained quiet and respectful. The beet salad is a must, the dressing is amazing! Rack of Lamb was expertly prepared and the accompanying vegetables were perfect. The Atlantic Cod was perfectly seared, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The risotto was creamy and amazing. Excellent choice of wines and the Vodka Martini was top notch. We were most fortunate to end our evening in the company of the owners, Saeed and Soraya who joined us as we rounded out the evening with coffee. Looking forward to our next reservation.
Very attentive and caring people working at the restaurant.
This was our first time visiting Cafe Renaissance and the meal and service were delightful. I highly recommend it.
Great birthday dinner with another couple. The food was great. I had the rack of lamb but the other three in the party all enjoyed their dinners. The service was good. As an added touch we received complimentary birthday desserts and port wine for everyone at the table. The owner stopped by for a brief, pleasant chat.
So many birthday celebrations last night, so the noise level was higher than usual. However, we were happy birthday people too and had a wonderful evening. Food and service are always excellent!
Cafe Renaissance is unique. The service is first rate. The owner, himself makes certain that you are satisfied with all of your food and drink choices. And the food is excellent and a great value.
Cafe Renaissance continues to be a a leader in the metropolitan DC market. The owner , Saeed, personally makes sure that every customer it treated like a long lost friend. The service is impeccable and the food is outstanding. Make this your special occasion restaurant of choice.
Always worth the drive from DC. In my opinion, this is one of the TOP 5 restaurants in the area. Wine list is abundant and moderately priced. The duck confit entree, two duck legs, light orange sauce, on bed of rice was the best I've tasted. Parking is plentiful.
Cafe Renaissance is one of our favorite restaurants. We take our friends there and always have a wonderful evening. Looking forward to our next visit.
Classy French style restaurant. Very welcoming and cheerful owner-
maitre d’ and staff. We knew server Nicole from a previous location — she was completely knowledgeable about both the menu items and beverages.
Really good service. Owner was very welcoming. Food was great!
We had an excellent meal! Delicious food and wine, friendly and efficient staff, and a lovely, quiet setting
The food was great and the service was impeccable. They provided for social distancing by spacing out the tables and providing outdoor tables. The staff are the friendliest you will ever find.
Our outside dining experience at the Cafe Rennaissance was outstanding. The staff do everything possible to ensure their guests have a wonderful dining experience. Mr. and Mrs. Abtahi put their heart and soul into the restaurant. Our salads and entrees were perfect and the desserts prepared by Mrs. Abtahi were delicious. We look forward to going back again soon!
We've been going to Cafe Renaissance for about 20+ years for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We always enjoy the food, desserts, service and Irish coffee!!!
Cafe Renaissance is a warm and welcoming restaurant with excellent food and wonderful staff. The owner and staff went above and beyond to make our special dinner memorable. This was our first visit, but they made us feel like old friends. This place is a hidden gem. The food was amazing and the atmosphere calm, relaxing, and comfortable, but still fancy.
A lovely experience, as always. Food was delicious, portions generous and service friendly and welcoming. Like many restaurants, they are having labor issues and patience is required between courses. We love the warmth of their service, the well-crafted meals and special touches. We will be back!
The two of us were warmly welcomed by the owner who is very present welcoming, taking orders, clearing tables and showing individual interest at each table. They had a variety of specials. Food was excellent , presented well and hot. Service was also good! Highly recommended!
Excellent food and service
Cafe R is always an outstanding dining expierence, wonderful evening.
This is our Special Event restaurant. The owners are the nicest people you will meet, and their staff are so professional. The meals are always great creations and well-prepared. Our favorite “course” is the flaming Irish Coffee.
Excellent food and service!
Roundup to a 4-star! Attentive services, especially from the super nice/ friendly owner! However, foods is only average to above average at the most. Duck Confit appetizer & Veal are the highlight, Halibut, Snapper & Salmon are only ok!
Outstanding service. Delicious food. Exceptional staff. Wonderful experience!
Cafe Renaissance is my favorite restaurant. Owner Saeed, his chef and staff turn eating out into a most pleasurable experience. The cozy dining room with its fresh floral displays and art-filled walls offers the perfect ambience for a special occasion. I believe that if you try it once, you'll return.
