    Had a wonderful dinner on Mother’s Day here with our daughter. Was Able to be seated quickly, and served our delicious meals in a short period of time! Have eaten here 3 times in the last 5 weeks and service and quality of food was great!

    Overall very good. My Rockfish could have used a little more seasoning, but it was cooked perfectly. Our server did a great job despite having to wait on a huge party in another section of the restaurant. Prices were good.

    This visit was a completely different experience than what we had a few years back. This time, the staff was extremely pleasant and efficient. So glad we decided to return after years of boycotting Ted's. Your extended menu and professional staff was a pleasant change.

    Looked fine and staff was nice, but food was not good. Cold (fries replaced and they were ok) greasy/mushy stale bread. Got 8 tater tots and I’d normally ask for more, but they weren’t good. Not at all like what we’ve had at other Ted’s B at other locations (solid American). We all felt terrible overnight and the next morning. Maybe an off night, but don’t plan on returning to this location and will be requesting a refund.

    Service was great after a short delay in the server coming. Steak and cheese was on a dry sesame roll not ideal for the sandwich type. COD on the fish and chips was uncooked in the middle. Usually love the food and service. Hopefully this is an anomaly.

    We were a table of 2 and restaurant wasn't crowded. They put us down the stairs where the larger parties are seated. Tables were dirty for way longer than they should have been, our table was so wobbly we had to place several sugar packets underneath the legs to make it sturdy, we could barely hear our waiter not sure if he was new, it was freezing down there.

    Ted’s is great, super fast getting our order out. Tasty and reasonable prices. Unfortunately Reston Town Center still suffers from parking hassles. Came out to find my vehicle booted by RTC security, not the police. I have NO history of tickets at RTC. Had to pay a $35 fee to have them take off the boot, a 34 minute hassle while waiting outside in the rain. My “crime” was parking close to a handicapped ramp, I took pictures and plan to challenge this. Why not just a warning?!

    Server was initially rude. We waited a long time to order drinks or be addressed initially. The manager apologized and stated the drinks were on them. (Once I got the itemized bill- available only after I paid!!! /We only got 1 of 2 drinks free) The entrees were good, Caesar salad gross- didn’t even it it. We ordered chocolate cake to share. It was if we were eating a plastic display sample. So stale it wasnt edible. I ordered the homemade pop tarts and paid at the table. They were never brought to us. No biggie but just not a great experience. The manager was nice at least.

    Food was excellent and the prices reasonable. The wine was very good. The wait staff wasn't as attentive as they could have been. We twice had to ask the hostess to send our waitress to our table. Also, the waitress didn't pour the wine after the bottle we bought was tasted. The ambience/ noise level was fine until they seated a party of about 12 noisy teenagers - mostly girls - at the two tables next to ours. It became nearly impossible to have a conversation with the other couple at our table. The wait staff nor the hostess did nothing to quiet the young people. Other than that, it was an enjoyable evening out with friends. We'll probably try this location again to see if there is improvement. Perhaps this is growing pains of a new wait staff.

    Only two negatives: OpenTable messed up a 7pm reservation for 4 that apparently posted as a 10:30am reservation. (The host had no problem with it, though, and seated me right away, lots of open tables on a Tuesday night.) The decaf coffee (oredered by two in our party) was undrinkable and the server would have had a hard time caring less. Seems it all comes from the same salyd and over-cooked urn and no solution (or apology) was offered. Positives: The food was great and delivered promptly, and the beer was nice and cold.

    Very disappointed in our dining experience last night. It was a special occasion- my son just returned home from six weeks abroad - and we were looking forward to catching up over good food. While the food was good, the service was not. Our waitress was sweet but perhaps overwhelmed? I ordered a cocktail that was delivered only right before our food arrived. I asked for a straw that never came. Our food arrived incomplete- delivered by a different server. After 10 mins I finally got up and searched for our waitress, who had never stopped by to check on us, to request the side salad that had not been delivered. Just an underwhelming experience overall and negatively impacted our celebratory mood.

    Service was slow - waited 10 minutes before the waitress came to the table, and then the waitress was rude. Asked 3 separate times for to go box at the end of the meal, asked twice for parking validation code. Overall not a fan of the food - it wasn’t anything special. Pop tarts were crumbly sugar cookies with jam. Sausage was over cooked. Eggs were hard centers despite asking for over medium. Best thing ordered was the cheesy grits.

    If you've never tried this place but you love vintage... This is your place! I was watching Charlie Chaplin on this retro TV and kept giggling at the aluminum foil they put on the antenna! The chairs looked like they were from ol skool school and the tables were steampunk. The booths were super plush and comfy. Now for the food: O...M...Gee Soo yummy!! I had the steak frites with garlic parmesan fries, my daughter had the Short ribs pot roast with mashed potatoes and gravy and hubby had the meatloaf with mashed and veggies. I drank something called Take Me to the Beach, 2 thumbs up! and guess what? They have all day brekkie toooooo🤤

    I like this place and have returned multiple times. I always leave feeling satisfied. Enjoy the options and the all-day breakfast. Service can be hit or miss depending if you get someone experienced or someone who is new. Price is as expected for what you get. Enjoy the ambience and Jason the Manager is always willing to help if needed. Will be back again.

    Sat outside. Service was SLOW and mediocre. Lots of things forgotten. Overall just OK. Despite challenges, server's attitude seemed essentially positive so that saved them. Would likely recommend restaurant, but w reservations and caveats. The use of the handheld scanners to pay the check is atrocious. I get it handed to me showing only the total. Server wants to hover there while I pay and put the tip on. Anyone ever trained these folks or simply taught them good manners? In my day that'd have been considered pushing for a tip = goodbye. This is an issue industry wide. You should lead out on this amd train your staff what NOT to do.

    This was our third time to Ted's Bulletin at Reston Town Center. As usual the service was great. However, we had a manhattan cocktail that wasn't spectacular. And the fish in the fish and chips had a funny taste, which, in fairness could have just been the need for fresh oil. We'll give Ted's another try, but probably not for a while. Overall, yes, we would still recommend this restaurant for dinner and brunch.
