Nice ambience. Service was fairly good toward the beginning, but toward the end I had to flag someone down to bring us our check. Sat at the outside tables which were nice but it was hard to get away from the speakers playing music so it was a little difficult to have a conversation.

Very disappointed with not having live entertainers and not much DJ music diversity. Previous visits were super pleasant and full of great music variety and live entertainers. These amenities brought great crowds and super pleasant atmosphere.

Strongly suggest to bring back those live entertainers, revise the DJ music selection variety, re-implement a semi formal dress code with no jeans allowed.

Excellent restaurant, great service. Excellent varied menu. Indoor area was a little noisy,but outdoor seating was fine. A very vibrant bar scene on a Friday night. Lots of alternatives on the menu, my wife likes her steak cooked extremely rare and it was done perfectly. The manager even came over to double check. Also very easy to get to in Tysons Corner. Definitely will be back !

It’s a nice place with great service. The food wasn’t as top notch as we expected, especially for the price point.

The food was very good. Our service was mediocre at best. I’m not sure if they were understaffed or just don’t have great process in place. The atmosphere is energetic and the ambiance and decor is farm to table chic.

The service was very slow. We did not understand why as the restaurant was practically empty. The waiter requires a lot of training. For example: When I asked him if they serve herbal tea, he responded he did not know. Then, he said there are two trays. The trays contained herbal tea. He should have just said yes and the tray over.

Service extremely slow. Couple next to us left after waiting for an extended period and no one waiting on them.
Food is okay.
This is more of a party atmosphere - not a restaurant.

Our party of 6, we do not recommend. The first clue, I admit I missed. I could easily get a Mothers day reservation the Wednesday before when all other places were booked for weeks. Disorganized greeting which had 1/2 of our.party waiting while the others were actually seated.

The wait staff was polite and probably the best part of the meal. It was a Mother's Day brunch menu. Between the 6, we had 5 different meals. Pretty consistently poor, either overcooked, or not very appetizing. Very small coffee mugs (probably 6 oz) for $3 (the least of the issues mind you).

Having had it over to do, I would've accepted the.longer wait times at the preferred restaurant that didnt not accept reservations.

We went or Easter Brunch-our first time there. There were very few people there so it was quiet. The waiter was not familiar with the brunch menu and the service was slow in spite of there being only a few tables around. Never saw the manager - though I thought we should have as the waiter needed help. The food was outstanding but presentation was lacking. Basically just whatever we ordered on the plate. Nothing extra to make it look good. Love the vibe of the place. We plan to go back for their regular menu :-).

I do not recommend this restaurant. The place was very large and very empty. Could be a fabulous place to watch a game with friends. The service was slow and my order was wrong and needed to be sent back. We sat at a table but the bartender was supposed to have the remote to change the game being shown on the televisions. The bar was mostly unattended and all of the screens were showing non-local games (we wanted to watch the Washington Capitals). Eventually was changed upon the bartenders return. Food was plain and uninspired. Would not return.

The food is excellent we ordered the Japanese steak, lamb, chicken appetizer and pizza they were tasty except they were not hot but at room temperature unfortunately. That’s why four star . The sitting is comfortable and very nice in the patio outside. The bathrooms need some work. The price a little pricey. Overall very good

The food was OK and the service was lousy. We were there for Valentines Day and the meal was disappointing. The server was uninformed and the wine person not helpful. For the price I expect more. Appetizers came just before the entree after a long wait. We will not be back.

Not to eat dinner on the weekend - may need to try out during the week, maybe better service.

Its more of a happy hour social environment that turns into a club after 11pm (Fri, Sat).

Not usually open on Sundays, this was a great spot to watch the Super Bowl since they had dozens of TVs everywhere and also had projected it too. Unfortunately the menu was incredibly limited for the game with maybe 10 appetizers + only a burger with fries as the only meal option without any other items available, so was very disappointed with the selection to say the least. That said, the vibe and ambiance was good and server was nice. Food was ok, the burger was way overcooked and dry despite requesting it medium, the fries were crisp and tasty. Would try again another day to give it a chance with the regular menu.

Everything about the meal was great and both my wife and I agree that we would go back but the restroom, at least the men’s, was poorly maintained and the single toilet was missing the seat.

Great place in Vienna/Tyson’s corner area! Come for dinner, and stay for drinks. There’s a separate lounge on one side of the restaurant with a completely different nightclub vibe. Very cool space, cool staff, and good food.

Went on Xmas Eve, so it was very quiet, but I suspect when it's busy, it would be VERY noisy. Food was really very good, tuna request was perfect! Looks more like an after-work hot spot.

Liked the duo playing piano and drums on Friday. If you want to chat though, it gets noisy.
Food was good and service OK. A couple of errors coming from the kitchen that were promptly fixed.

Overall the experience was alright. Our waitress was very rude though. I don’t remember her name but she said we had to order food because she was alrighty waiting 15 mins for our whole party to get here. She seemed annoyed of our table even though we were very patient with her nasty attitude. I don’t really write these but we went last Saturday at 7pm and we were a party of 9. So regardless she was gonna get a good tip but she did not have a nice personality and if it wasn’t for the gratituty that had to be put in, I would not have given her a tip.

What an unexpected pleasure it was to dine there! It was a great place to have lunch with colleagues. I never knew this place existed! The cozy lounge area would be a nice place to grab a drink after work.

Looked forward to it based on their description of being farm-to-market, but the style of the place seemed disjointed, especially with all the TVs everywhere. Food was good, not great, with the exception of the Panna Cotta dessert.

The food was fine. Not impressive, but fine. If you like a million TV sets while dining, this place is for you. We went at what I guess was an odd time: lunch with only one other table seated at the restaurant. Service was a disappearing act though the server was pleasant. I assume she's more on top of things when it's busy, but with just us we got ignored, particularly when it was time to pay.

Service was painfully slow and while our server was kind, she was very uninformed and unable to answer basic questions. Her timing was also off and at one point she was chatting with a male server socially for several minutes while she watched us trying to get her attention. We were polite and kind throughout the experience but we were highly disappointed on many levels. For the price we paid for dinner and drinks we could have gone to other high end restaurants in Tyson’s or Vienna and had far better service and ambiance. The noise was pure chaos. Loud private parties seated in the main dining area, super sleazy men loudly talking about sleeping with escorts and debasing women. Women dressed like escorts during the dinner hour with one woman reaching across our table with her mid section and rear-end in my friend’s dining space while she chatted obnoxiously with the table next to us. The first round of drinks was very good and then the second round was undrinkable. The replacement drinks weren’t even the drinks we ordered. The food was actually very good but the experience was lacking on so many levels. We arrived for a 7pm dinner reservation and it felt more like we were at a late night after hours place full of inexperienced staff and patrons with no home training. It’s Tyson’s, not Las Vegas. This was so bad that I had to repeatedly apologize to my friend because I was the one who suggested we try this restaurant.
