When it first opened the food was amazing. Now they have dumbed down the menu and it’s just ok.

It was very warm in the restaurant. No A/C. No mint for mojitos. Menu is not clear, main courses are mixed with appetizers.

They changed the menu from a regular menu to a tapas menu. We preferred the other menu and dining style. The food was still tasty and well prepared. We’ve been here many times, and this was the first time we’ve had poor service. Our server was attentive and punctual, but bordered on rude. We felt like he just wanted us to leave. We noticed him talking and laughing with others, but he never cracked a smile or offered any extra thoughts or conversation. Our reservation was late (8:30), and we asked to be sat at a different table than the one that was offered by the door. It was freezing outside and we didn’t want to be so close to the door as everyone left. Maybe this annoyed him. We’ll never know because we’ll never go back. We can be treated that way for way less money.

Food was decent, nothing to write home about, but a good value. The mimosas were very good.

Service was very slow. It looked like there was only one server for all tables. Food came quickly but ordering anything else and getting the check were very difficult.

We knew Jen left but when we ask the service staff about the chef we got, “he is a nobody” and they couldn’t have been more accurate. Food was not very good and it showed since the place was a ghost town.

Amazing experience! Had the bottomless brunch, which at 35 bucks (with 25 cent mimosas) was a steal. Christoph, our server, was excellent. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a high quality, reasonably priced brunch.

All of the food was very tasty, but the menu seemed a bit confused. The server had a very specific script to describe the sharing/small plates aspect, but the menu items didn't seem to line up. Why would there be a burger or crab cake sandwich sharing a menu section with tapas. Seemed a bit strange.

Highlights would be the beet risotto, whole branzino, and brussels sprouts.

The restaurant was great; delicious food, good service, but the noise level was terrible.
I had to plug my ears to avoid getting a headache. Perhaps it was because of the overly exuberant screechy-voiced group at a nearby table.

I don't know how they can fix this.

Pricey, bland, small. Plus, they don’t care about it.
It reminds me like a very bad version of Philly’s Barbuzo.

We were so excited to try Requin, after hearing great things (and I LOVE Mike Isabella restaurants!), but were very disappointed with our experience. I don't know if we came in on a bad night, but we were disappointed with almost every dish we ordered, as well as the service. Several other tables around us sent their food back to the kitchen at various points throughout the night, so I am wondering if there may have been something going on. Our server was less than friendly and overall we just felt uncomfortable and unhappy with the experience there. I unfortunately would not go back unless I heard this place made drastic changes.

We had a wonderful evening and were the last to leave - attentive service & great food to share; no intrusions; low noise level to allow a free flowing conversation. An ideal relaxing way to catch up with friends over dinner!

Food overpriced. Tiny portion sizes even for tapas. And under seasoned. Blinding sun in our eyes the whole time. No blinds to fix it. Soup served without soup spoon. Etc etc. Fine dining prices but so very far from a fine dining experience.

Our server was exceptional, could not have been better! Ambiance good & prices reasonable. Food was just a bit off the mark. Offerings were good, combinations seemed to work, but execution and/or quality control could have been better. It’s a problem easily solved if someone in charge pays attention. Thanks to our server, we’ll probably come back to find out if things change. If it were not for her, we wouldn’t.

The noise level detracted from what should have been a nice reunion with friends.
The food was tasty, service was good, but
Unfortunately, we had to strain to hear one another. For that reason, I would not return.

Requin is located in Fairfax , Va in a beautiful shopping area. Tall buildings with lots of string lights and lots of parking. The restaurant has a romantic ambiance and music. Hostess greeted and seated us within a few seconds. The waiter and staff were so attentive. Drinks , food and dessert were so delicious! Would definetly recommend for special occassions and romantic date nights.

We were there with 4 other people and it was impossible to carry-on a conversation with anyone other than the person next to you (even that was difficult) due to the noise levels in the restaurant. However, everyone's food was very good and the service very good.

We decided to try this for my birthday the other night. I ordered the branzino even though it was a bit pricey--it was my birthday after all. This may have been the best piece of fish I have ever tasted. It was cooked perfectly with a crunchy crust and delicious herbs and lemon over white beans and greens. I will be returning the next time we have a special occasion to celebrate. And by the way, my husband's ribs were also delicious.

This is a very confused concept restaurant. While there were some shining elements the experience was not cohesive and overall not enjoyable enough to come back. For some reason we really loved the lighting in this space - a pro. The octopus escabeche however - a con. Please treat ingredients with the respect they deserve - throwing octopus in spaghetti sauce and putting corn nuts on top does not an appetizer make. The chefs were also heavy handed on salt across the board. The kale and apple salad shined as on the second attempt it was delivered without dressing and the fresh herbs were a perfect flavoring to a simple dish. My chicken should have been another example of a simple dish prepared well. It missed the mark I got a nicely cooked half chicken swimming in a bowl of soup/sauce. The a jus also managed to completely drown my whipped potatoes and carrots - a disappointment. My husband had a nicely prepared filet. While it was pan fried and not grilled it was cooked to temperature and not bad. He did enjoy the fries.

Most of the food items were quite good. Braised short rib was very tough.

Server was slow and forgetful; not at all apologetic. She did not change plates or replenish silverware between two appetizer courses. Bar service was very slow.

The menu has changed since this place opened, and not for the better. it feels like they are cheapening it. The mushroom scramble was my favorite and has since been replaced with a vegetable scramble. The cheese platter, should not be called a cheese platter anymore. It had ONE cheese. We did not get our cookie platter, waitress brought me a glass that had lipstick on it. This is no longer a great brunch place for sure. it is an OK brunch place.

The brussel sprout appetizer with green apples, almonds slices, and honey had us sliding the share plate rather frequently. The ratatouille with toasts was a tomato squash savory chutney that surprised us with its depth. The waiter noted my daughter was searching for a vegan dish and after consulting with the chef (On his initiative which is rare these days) and had the cheese removed from the main course so that my daughter could experience the best risotto she ever had the pleasure of eating. For the scotch connoisseur try the Wallace cocktail with the Laphroaig.

Disappointing. Food and service were not good-especially at that price point. Ordered mussels and burrata to start. Mussels were ok-nothing special but burrata was good. My husband and I both ordered the short ribs for dinner. I had to send mine back (I have sent back maybe 5 dishes in my entire life)—they were that bad. Super fatty and tough. Had to try to cut them with a butter knife to no avail—would have needed a steak knife to eat these short ribs! My husbands were slightly more tender but still not good. After sending them back the manager never stopped by my table and I was charged for the onion soup I got instead —which I had to eat by myself as my husband was already finished at that point. Never an apology. I can forgive a single bad food experience but not poor management. A manager should touch every table that food is sent back from. However, the waiter was personable.

Food was mediocre for the incredibly high prices. Red wine was served cold- we were told it would warm up on its own- not offered another bottle. And no, it didn’t warm up on its own. There were 6 in our party- food was not brought out to all of us at the same time, and there was no apology forthcoming. This happened twice- for both apps and main courses. We will not be returning.

Brunch was a great value. Cocktails were outstanding, and standout brunch dish was the ratatouille. (Really! It's like a veggie confit and it's delicious!) Also enjoyed the perfect scrambled eggs, and delightfully simple crudités, green salad, and cheese plate.

We were looking forward to trying Requin. Went with another couple we dine regularly with & all 4 of us were disappointed overall. Server was very good - friendly & professional. Martinis were a total rip off - less than 1/3 the size of a martini at the Palm or Flemings, yet still cost $13! Amazing to us that they would actually serve a drink that small at that price. Food was just okay overall - small plates, onion soup & risotto. Branzino fish special was excellent.....Restaurant was maybe half full, yet noise level was very high. Not sure if the chef name is driving the prices up, but this place was not a good value & it's unlikely we will be back. It's too bad because we were hopeful & wanting to find a new "go to" restaurant in the area.
