The four of us had delicious appetizers, entrees, dessert and enjoyed half-priced wine. The German chocolate cake is homemade. The duck and chicken specials were superb as was the chicken piccata. Lovely atmosphere. Dean is an excellent server.
Never a bad meal here!
many different entrees to choose from (unlike many corporate chains in the NoVA area!)
Good food and homemade desserts
Absolutely perfect location for date night with my husband (minus kids!) The French Pinot noir was amazing and at a great price with the 1/2 price bottle special! For food, we ordered the Caesar salad and calamari to start and branzino and fillet mignon as entrees. Everything was cooked beautifully- seasoned, flavorful, and temperature as requested. The service was superb and we felt comfortable, welcome, and happy from beginning to end.
One more thing... I look forward to going back with the kids- there is a great kids menu and the pricing is on point!
Excellent overall, but the coronavirus safety precautions with masked wait staff creeps me out as I’m sure patrons’ masks probably turn them off too! Great time for a birthday celebration with my wife & seeing good friends there was also a very pleasant surprise.
I have lived in the Northern Virginia area for 56 years and I can truthfully say I have eaten in some fine restaurants, but Idylwood Grill is my very favorite. The service is always exemplary, the food is always remarkable, and the dining space is attractive, comfortable, and quiet enough for conversation. A dining out experience at the Idylwood Grill has never been a disappointment for me.
Excellent choices on the menu, a good wine list and the service couldn't have been better.
There is also outside seating if diners don't want to be indoors although the spacing and large plastic dividers between tables are excellent.
Very good, great wine special - 1/2 price bottles.
This is one of our favorites; the food is absolutely delicious, the decor is cozy and warm, and the staff polite and friendly. This is not an inexpensive outing, so we enjoy it for our special events. But we always leave feeling that it was worth it! Save room for dessert!
Our food was excellent. Two diners had the filet and I had the veal. The service was great, fast and efficient without being intrusive. We will definitely dine here again.
After a fabulous and delicious dinner on 9/10 we returned 9/11 with friends as this cozy restaurant is delightful. Great staff and a creative chef serve superb meals that are fresh, tasty and memorable. Half price wine and homemade desserts are two items not to miss.
This gem is a cozy hideaway that serves superb and interesting tasty dinners. Great wine bargain as wine is half price. Save room for the homemade desserts...best German chocolate cake we have ever had.
This restaurant is excellent-service-food and management great
This restaurant is the best kept secret in Northern Virginia it is outstanding,
Great food and service for fifteen years. Our go-to restaurant!!
Idylwood Grill offers delicious food and a wonderful ambience!
The food is OK but it’s overpriced. The owner walked in and out of the place grabbing beers which killed the ambiance. The restaurant has a lot of crap in it that detracts from the ambiance as well. I do not recommend this place except as a convenient local spot that’s guaranteed not to be too crowded if you live nearby. I do not understand the favorable reviews.
This restaurant is such a treasure! Not just excellent cuisine but with kind and patient service, and they have done a great job in designing the dining room for COVID protection, including plastic partitions between the few tables and a large open space in the middle.
Idyllwood Grill is never a disappointment. It's my favorite restaurant. I have had at least 6 different entrees from their menu and all have been outstanding. Food, service, and ambiance all four stars.
good place for a special occasion or get together. Owner is hands on which is important in this business. Very good food and wine selection.
We have yet to have anything but a great time at Idylwood grill. Service has been exceptional and the food is very flavorful and well prepared. IG is now our favorite!
A quiet oasis of wonderfully prepared food.
Idylwood Grill is one of the best places around, menu great service great wine list great-Never disappointing.
Great place with great food and wonderful owner who will make you feel like family
Waiter wasn't very friendly and bisque. Would come back. Wait staff very friendly!!
Leg of lamb outstanding. Nice atmosphere- background music and full bar.
Idylwood Grill was very good as usual. The décor is a bit outdated and falling apart, but the food is excellent every time. they could charge a lot more if they updated the décor and menus.
It was my husband’s birthday. We shared a Caesar salad—plenty for 2 people. He had the almond crusted almond and I had the steak au poivre. Both were very good. It was a nice dinner. Nothing to rave about, but we enjoyed it. Personally, I was disappointed to have plastic table cloths. For this place, cloth tablecloths would be more appropriate.
Great lunch, food was terrific, service great, perfect location for an important private business meeting.
My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Idylwood Grill and Wine Bar. It is one of our favorite restaurants. The owner and staff are welcoming and always go above and beyond. The food is delicious and we feel fortunate to have such an amazing restaurant in the neighborhood. Bravo!
Great place to go, nice size, good noise level (a buzz, but not a roar), excellent food, very good service, very good value. Have
eaten here many times.
Excellent service and food.
Idylwood Grill is in a small shopping center and its looks are deceiving. Inside is a very pleasant restaurant. Food is dependably very good. Staff are welcoming.
cute little restaurant. service wasn’t great but food made up for it. space is cramped but clean with nice ambiance
We chose to come here for Valentine's Day in order to do something different, as we typically stay within DC for fancy meals. After scouring menus, I decided the prix fixe options at Idlywood Grill looked good. Unfortunately I should've done more due diligence. The meal was comparable to the selections offered on their traditional menu at a severely bumped up price, and several of the options listed online as Valentine's Day specials were no longer on the menu. All in all, I found the service to be lukewarm, with a charming hostesses, but a server who seemed rushed and cold (despite the menu not being large or at capacity). The food seemingly lacked in flavor, although the Shrimp Ajo was phenomenal. We could have definitely spent the 200$ ($70pp + one wine + tip) elsewhere for a more lux experience and ambiance -- maybe a nice place to come if you live in Falls Church and want a nice wine bar, but the prices/quality for holidays is not worth it.
Great Valentine's day dinner; friendly, prompt, and helpful staff
Another fantastic meal at one of our favorite restaurants. Service and food wonderful as usual.
Service was very attentive. The food from Fried Calamari appetizer to the Blackened Scallops over Risotto and Crab Cake over Spinach Raviolis was well presented generally flavorful. The Crab Cake entree would have benefited from additional seasoning to add some punch. Tiramisu for dessert rounded out an excellent meal.
The atmosphere was great for an intimate dinner and conversation with a special someone. Would definitely go back again and recommend to friends.
Very good food and interesting selection of both food and wine. Not the prettiest location, but its kind of nice to find such a nice place there. Wait staff is competent and very pleasant, but perhaps not the slickest you've ever seen.
What a delightful experience! The atmosphere was quaint and rustic. The owner was so kind, attentive and knowledgeable about the food and the wine. The service was wonderful and inviting. The food was fresh and deliciously seasoned! All the entrees were happily devoured by us. We also enjoyed listening to the musician playing jazz on keyboards - the acoustics was perfect. Love this place. It might just be the best dining experience we have had in a long time. And we will be back for sure. For anyone who's looking for both good food and good atmosphere needs to check out Idylwood Grill.
