With reservations it took 15 minutes to seat us. The first table was not acceptable we asked to be seated elsewhere. There was no kids menu to view. The kids menu online didn't reflect the way it prepared. Service was very slow it took 30-minute to receive an Oreo milkshake for the kids.

Started off badly with front staff insisting I did not have a reservation even after showing confirmation. Eventually seated and everything got better! Savannah was an excellent server. Food was delicious and all was well.

Good was very good. Service could definitely be improved, they forgot to bring me hot tea and they never checked to see if our meal was ok. We had to get the server for our check. Other than that experience - encourage eating here for breakfast meetings.

We have eaten at other Ted’s locations. This experience was not good. Server rarely checked on us. Grilled cheese and soup was barely warm. Had to remind him it was a birthday celebration. $180 dinner and birthday celebration was very disappointing.

I had a good brunch experience. It would have only been improved by the availability of certain menu items. My guest wanted to order a beer and the restaurant was out of the requested beer and all alternatives.

We went there on my birthday this Sunday (10/3). It took over 10 minutes for the waitress to even come to the table. The coffee and food was good, but the waitress seemed to be avoiding us as she never made eye contact, even when I tried to get her attention for a spoon for the coffee (we had to just use the fork) and butter or something to dress the toast. We didn’t get either because i couldn’t get her to look or come back to our table. We also didn’t get offered refills and or napkins. I almost got out to get both myself but decided to just eat quickly and leave. We saw her having nice conversations with other tables, but she only showed up to take the order and drop off the check. I wish I got her name, but we didn’t see her enough to even get that. The food was delicious. It was just a shame that the service was terrible. I will not be going back.

We all Ordered a hearty breakfast. My wife wanted bacon so crispy you can snap it. But she had to send it back as it was not crispy enough. In 4 minutes it was back to our table and it was perfect! Great fast service.

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.

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.
