Price, ambiance and service were all very good. However, food was very greasy! Something your chef has to keep in mind so it doesn’t diminish the quality of the food offered at the restaurant!

Service was horrible. Asked for a few things and server never brought any of them. Pickle brined chicken sandwich tasted similar to a fast food sandwich. Not going back.

Cinnamon roll as big as ya head, the definite stand out! Other than that, everything else was just...ok. The food and beverages definitely over priced, even in this era when I'm okay paying more because the COVID issues. The service was also just ok, which was a big disappointment.
We used to go to Ted's with some frequency, pre-COVID, and this was our visit back. I don't want to give up on Ted's so will hope this was a one-off and try again.

Busy Sunday restaurant, one of our favorite spots for breakfast in the Reston Town Center. We thoroughly enjoy their outdoor patio seating, and the wait staff is always attentive and courteous. Love their homemade pop tarts as well.

Waiter completely forgot about us. Food was cold. Brought us the bill as soon as we got our food. Felt completely rushed to get out. We actually wanted dessert, we had to ask for it waiter never offered us anything else. Very disappointing

Order was not brought completely or accurately. Items were not hot, or even warm. Had to ask three times for refills. The staff with the exception of our original service were professional and helpful. The person who took our order was hard to understand, stopped taking our order mid-sentence and walked away to talk to another table. Will think twice before eating here again.

We enjoyed our brunch - the food was good. The Ted Tarts were underwhelming, but everything else was delicious. The service was spotty - the waitress was nice, but then she disappeared for a while and we needed more water. We finally tracked her down and received more water and our checks.

The server was absolutely horrible. He didn’t check on us at all. I had to ask for my cappuccino and another server brought the drink. But it was cold since it had been sitting. My food came out wrong and had to be remade. One person in my party waited to eat and their food got cold. The rest of my party finished their meal before mine arrived. When the server finally came over he brought the check and asked if we were still doing okay? My reply was simply “we were never doing okay.” He made a nervous laugh and just left us the check and disappeared again.

Must try a Ted Tart - you will never eat a boxed one again! The boozy bananas foster milkshake and breakfast burrito were outstanding! The hash browns were perfectly crispy and browned!

Great spot for breakfast. Hear their Ted's Hash is fantastic, among a variety of other options. I actually went for lunch and had a sandwich. If you like a little zing in your food, their Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich is a must have - delish!

The atmosphere was great, the food was very good, and the service was good, but it seemed a little chaotic with having three different servers wait/check on us.
Manager stopped by and checked on us, nice touch.
We will be back, and hopefully the service is a little less chaotic.

Birthday, early breakfast. Had area to ourselves for about 15 minutes than 2 families with crying babies were seated directly behind us. Crying babies are not the restaurant’s fault but it did ruin the ambience/mood. It would be nice if couples aren’t surrounded by

Probably our fifth visit or so, but not rushing back again. The food was mediocre and the service was friendly but rushed. The restaurant was busy but appetizers came out in minutes, immediately followed by the Main. Felt like being in an airport eatery. I overheard tables around us also being asked about dessert as folks were maybe halfway through the main course. It was hours from closing and some tables were lingering after their 20 minute meal. The Steak Frites was 90% cold fries and 10% sliced beef. Bernaise sauce could pass for tartar sauce. Very disappointing.

After hearing about Ted’s for awhile, we finally made reservations and went out for dinner. We were greeted by a waitress who seemed annoyed by our presence, though we had no special requests. The food arrived quickly but was nothing to brag about. I had steak frites and the fries were stale and the steak under seasoned. We ordered drinks and desert and the waitress still seemed bored with us, maybe she was having an off night. The novelty of drinks and deserts were just that, a novelty. I won’t go out of my way to return.

For a 5:15pm reservation on a Thursday night, they were out of 2 menu items and a beer which our table ordered. It wasn't busy at that time so unsure if it because a truck didn't arrive or what. Not a great impression for our out-of-town guests who we brought to celebrate a birthday. However, the food and beverages that were ordered were fine as was service.
