Established in 1941, Cedar Knoll is a historic restaurant with sweeping views of the Potomac River. Cedar Knoll is set just off the beautiful George Washington Parkway, which makes for a scenic drive. The restaurant was built around a log cabin dating back to the early 1800's, so the history is apparent from the moment you step inside. Each room possesses charming qualities adding to the ambiance. Whether you dine in the comfortable elegance of the Presidential Room or the natural splendor of the Botanical Room, both set the perfect stage for an evening with family, friends, and loved ones. Cedar Knoll is conveniently located minutes between Old Town Alexandria and George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate.

    My family enjoys an outdoor meal on the patio when the weather is nice, and the food and service are great. Very friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere, charming indoor areas too in this historic restaurant with food themes of early mid-Atlantic dishes.

    Veal dish was a little over-the-top as far as ingredients, but overall a very nice dinner. Tough to beat the view!

    The Cedar Knoll is rapidly becoming my favorite place to eat in the Mt Vernon area. The beautiful setting, reasonably quiet dining room and excellent food service make it a wonderful choice for a lovely meal with friends or family who want to chat and eat.

    This is a great restaurant. The food is excellent and the view of the Potomac makes it that much better.

    Pricey menu but worth it. Excellent food, service and ambience. The bacon wrapped scallops were divine for appetizer. The veal was magnificent, a classic European presentation.

    We had a lovely Mother's Day Brunch, with a tasty and creative prix-fixe menu and a cheery, attentive server. Just driving the ten minutes or so from Old Town to this "country" restaurant near the river felt like a special escape. We can't wait to go back for dinner and try another part of the property, too. Note that as a sprawling "house," the dining room experience can vary quite widely from light to dark, cozy to spread-out, so if you have a strong preference you'll want to mention it when booking a table.

    The food and the service were excellent. The noise level was loud. Loud to the point that we could not hear from one end of the table to the other. BUT, it was Mother's Day and there were a lot of children in the dining area. Some were very well behaved and quiet. Others not so much. And the parents of the louder children were also loud (makes you wonder where the kids learned to be loud). Perhaps on occasions where there will be young children, those with out them could be seated in a different section? I don't know the answer, just thinking out loud. Regardless, we still had a good time and will definitely be returning in the future!

    The food is too expensive to be this subpar. The octopus was rubbery and overcooked. We sent it back. The semolina cake was okay but not great. The menu needs a basic sandwich or flatbread to balance out the current dishes. This was a very disappointing experience. The music on the patio was the high point.
