City Works - Tysons Corner
We really liked our waiter, Curt. Great personality and very service oriented. The food was delicious!!! Dessert was yummy!!! We will be back😃
Looked at the menu before going and it seemed like kind of upscale bar food, which is exactly what it was. The popcorn chicken, cheese curds, and filet sliders were esp good. Extensive beer and cider menu. I’m sure capital one will keep this place busy during the week, but it’s worth a trip for happy hour or dinner.
Missing Identity ... Sports Bar with no happy hour? Great selection of beers but random TVs and high prices!
Hi there, I'm sorry you had a frustrating time at City Works. Thank you for your feedback. - Staley
So I think
Overall it was a good experience. I will definitely return. I didn’t have dinner but was able to try the buffalo chicken dip and the Mac and cheese... which should be called butter noddles because it barely had any cheese. Very disappointed.
Booked a table, parked, got there and the restaurant was closed with signs on the door saying it was closed for maintenance??!! How can OpenTable allow reservations AND the restaurant website did not say anything about being closed.
Hi there, I'm sorry you had a disappointing experience at City Works. Unfortunately, we unexpectedly had to close due to some electrical issues we were having which caused many of our critical appliances to not work. All guests with OpenTable reservations were contacted via phone and left messages if they did not answer. We sincerely apologize for the confusion and inconvenience. We appreciate you taking the time to leave feedback! - Staley
Much improved! I came here about two months ago and had a terrible experience (slow service, poor food, etc.) but came back on a whim and had a much better experience this time! The service was fast and attentive and the food that came out was delicious. Certainly glad I gave them a second chance.
Hi Evan, I'm so happy to hear you gave us another shot and had a nice time at City Works. We really appreciate you visiting us, and hope you'll be back again soon! :) - Staley
Great food at a reasonable price. Fun atmosphere and easy parking.
Hi there, I'm glad you had a great time at City Works! We hope to see you again soon! :) - Staley
The “hot” chicken was super spicy (cldn’t eat it), but everything else was good (beer selection, fish tacos, duck nachos).
Food and drink were excellent. But on this particular day there were issues with the service where our orders were not entered properly and we had to wait for the correct meal. The restaurant seemed understaffed. The server and the manager did everything in their power and beyond to rectify what happened. As such, we would return without hesitation.
Food was good. Only 2 dessert options and we chose the wrong one. Service was marginal.
Extensive beer selection. Food was fine. I wouldn't suggest going there but if others wanted to go I would participate.
dined here several times now and most of the food is without much taste, or overly salty.
it is good for Capital One employees in the building that want to wait around for traffic to die down and have no other choice. Pretty quiet on saturdays and sundays.
Hi there, I'm sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience at City Works. Thank you for providing your feedback. I will relay your comments to the management team. We hope that we can show you our ability to improve based on guest feedback. - Staley
This place has an identity problem. The dozens of big screens and loud music say “sports bar.” The extensive beer list says “craft beer pub.” The $24 grouper entree and pricey wine pours say “upscale dining.” It needs to choose an identity and focus (and train waitstaff to refill water glasses promptly). Tysons continues to struggle with providing solid dining options for workers and residents alike and the addition of this restaurant does little to improve that.
Chicken tacos spicy. One person ordered and had to return. Food did not come out fast. Drinks Good and big selection of beers.
We had a lovely time celebrating my daughter’s birthday. The food was delicious and the place is great. Place is a little loud but the place is fin and food was great!!
Hi there, we're so glad you chose us to celebrate your daughter's special day! Thanks for dining with us—we hope to see you again soon! :) - Staley
Always a good time with beer and food
Hi Aravind, I'm glad you had a nice time at City Works! We look forward to seeing you again soon! - Staley
The food was not as well prepared as thought it would be with such limited menu. I would recommend it for drinks and/or HH not food.
Very attentive service and all items were made exactly to order! Will definitely come back again!
Hi there, I'm glad you had a great time at City Works! Come back again soon! :) - Staley
Recently opened and needs some maturing. Loudest restaurant experience we have ever had. It was 6:30 PM. If you are noise sensitive, be aware. Food tasted good. Kitchen error provided a rare burger when I asked for and the server correctly input a medium level of cooking. Delay in recognizing the error until the end of the meal motivated the manager to remove the burger from the bill. Lot's of beers to choose from and that part is neat. My wife's win pour seems really small. Manager provided complimentary deserts which was very nice. We will go back and anticipate this was just growing pains.
Great new place! Drinks were delicious, great menu, fast service and fun atmosphere. We’ll be coming back here again :)
I liked all the menu I had because they are not salty
And seat, booth was comfortable and spacious.
I love the verity of selections of beers.
Duck Nachos were excellent. Short rib hash was very tasty. Cookie dough dessert was perfect
Hi there, I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to City Works! We hope you'll come back again soon! :) - Staley
Loved the big screen televisions to watch sports and 90 different beers on tap! The service was great and the food was good. We’ll definitely return soon!

My only issue was they turned the soccer game on so loud that those of us there having a business lunch had to yell to be heard. I asked them to turn it down a bit but the manager ignored the request. Given this is on a business campus, I thought it was a bit inappropriate. Maybe more suited for HH level noise but not lunch. Know your customers. ;-)
That being said, the food and service were very good. I appreciated the waitresses suggestions and she was spot on. I'll be back.
Attractive atmosphere, wait staff really hustled. The food was very good and the beer selection amazing! My only complaint was how loud it was. The problem was mostly from the music which was way too loud. I look forward to when the outdoor seating is available.
Recommend the buffalo chicken dip appetizer.
Seared tuna salad bad choice. Tuna cold, right out of the fridge, no sesame crust, buffalo wing seasoning on the tuna I think??
Short pours on the beer. You don't know how many ounces you are going to get because they have this "the right glass for the beer" thing.
I made the reservation on Open table. When we got there to check in, the host said no table available for us because it’s Happy Hours time therefore all the tables were taken. Seriously?!? So we asked to speak to a manager, the manager came and walked us upstairs and gave us a corner table upstairs bar area... umm.. I said to him it’s my girlfriend’s bday today so could we have a table that’s not so hidden in the dark please. He apologized and sent us back downstairs. The table wasn’t ready so we waited for them to clean up. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was good. We loved the pretzel bites, duck nachos, the cauliflower steak was also good.
The restaurant is modern looking.
I would go back but I hope they will have a Happy Hours menu soon.
Mac and cheese appetizer was great. My friend found her burger too greasy. The fish and chips were ok. She enjoyed her flight of ciders and I liked the option of a half portion beer as I’m not a huge drinker but like to try things. Great selection of beers. Looking forward to the opening of the outside bar.
Service was a little slow and the noise level was too loud to converse easily. I know it’s trendy in restaurants nowadays but I prefer quieter spaces.
We would go back to try other food.
The service , and , even the ambiance at City Works were excellent. However , the noise level , especially at or near 'Happy Hour' is almost a turn-off. I could not engage in a civil conversation with my Wife because the noise was too , too loud !
Fun place to enjoy an after work dinner and drinks. Great selection of food choices on the menu. Look forward to outdoor dinning the next time I visit if the weather permits. It would be a great spot for local musicians to play if the management sees it in their future plans.

Unhappy Fathers Day.
I wanted to try a new restaurant for Father's Day, so I booked City Works on my Open Table App. Part of the reservation was a checkbox to select whether I wanted a low table or a high table. I selected a low table. Additionally, in the special request text box, I indicated that we needed a high chair for our two-year-old son. When we arrived, we were seated at a high booth which wouldn't accommodate the high chair. I explained that I had selected a low booth, which (for some reason) didn't show up in the reservation they received. The host told me that it would have appeared in the "special requests" section which was where I put the high chair request (which they did receive). One staff member apologized and said that we would be reseated. Another implied that I must have done something wrong with the reservation. A third stood with us at the high booth, menus in hand, waiting for something to happen, for five minutes or so, before I told her that she didn't need to wait with us. Eventually, we were told that no low tables were available.
We tried to make the best of it with a booster (which my son was having none of). We did this for more than 20 minutes with no visit from a server. No water, nothing. The same staff that either tried or didn't try to fix the issue for us walked by multiple times. Servers visited tables around us, including people who had been seated well after us.
Oversight or not, after the snafu with the reservation, it felt like we were being deliberately ignored. So we left the restaurant and asked the host to cancel our reservation in Open Table so that we could (hopefully) rebook somewhere else. They didn't even do that.
Thankfully, Chef Geoff's nearby was able to seat us last minute. Service was outstanding and helped to salvage an otherwise unhappy Father's Day dinner.
Hi Jay, I'm terribly sorry about your Father's Day experience at City Works. I appreciate you taking the time to leave your feedback—I'll pass your comments along to our management team so that we can provide extra training and support to our staff where necessary. Your previous experience is not reflective of the level of quality and service we pride ourselves on, and I'm sorry that you did not experience this during your last visit. - Staley
Out of their 90 beers on tap I did manage to select the 1 that they didn't have anymore. No biggie, I sampled two others and was happy with them both.
Food took a long time to come out though. It was an hour from when we walked in until we received our meal and it was a chicken wrap and tuna tacos.
I asked if they validate parking and was told no so I paid the parking fee before exiting as instructed and then the gate was up anyway...that was kind of annoying as there was no way to get my money back.
We went for Father’s Day and it was delicious! We loved everyone today our meal he enjoyed both his beers and the service was great! Definitely would recommend!!
Hi there, I'm glad you had a great time at City Works! Come back again soon! :) - Staley
Great food and unique drinks! Hopefully the parking lot stays free.
Hi there, we're glad you enjoyed City Works! Come back again soon! - Staley
Service was very slow and there seemed to be some issues with the kitchen. Hopefully they can get the kinks out since this is a new location. The food was good, when it finally arrived. We got apologies but were not offered anything else to make up for the extremely long wait. The location is very convenient. Will definitely try again in a month or so.
Good work lunch spot
Service was the slowest I’ve ever experienced. Took about 30 minutes to even talk to our server and then another hour for the food to actually come out after that. Don’t bother coming until they straighten out their kitchen and service issues.
Hi Evan, I'm sorry to hear about your recent visit to City Works. That doesn't reflect the level of service that we strive for, and we apologize for the extended wait time. I've alerted our management team to this issue so that we can resolve it and provide more training and support to our staff where needed. We appreciate you taking the time to leave feedback, and hope we can show you that we utilize your feedback to improve! - Staley
We enjoyed the staff, food and location. Looking forward to dining there again.
My husband and I came here for beers and dinner. A must-visit for beer lovers and novices alike. Staff was incredibly friendly, service was excellent and food was great (we had the pretzel bites, bacon cheeseburger and fried chicken sandwich). We'll definitely be back.
