The Front Page - VA Ratings and Reviews
Overall, very poor experience. Made a reservation and they said they don't honor reservations, so was lucky to get one of the last tables to watch the game. Service was pretty bad, had to ask for a food order 3 times over 2 hours and be yelled at by the waitress that the kitchen was busy, turns out she never ordered the food. After waiting 2 hours, we were still charged for it. They were not equipped to handle a busy football night.
Had dinner here before catching a movie. We sat outside on a beautiful summer night. The only issue was the French fries that came with both of our orders - they were inedible because of way too much salt!! Our server took care of it immediately, bringing a fresh plate of unsalted fries. Also, halfway into our dinner the piped in music was turned up very loud making conversation difficult. Again our server was very helpful when asked if the music could be turned down. We will definitely return but will ask for unsalted fries next time! Our dinners (a turkey burger and a crab cake sandwich) were delicious!
The price on the website did not match the charge when we arrived. Online brunch was listed at 18.99 per person, but was 27.99 per person since it was Mother's Day. Same food just $9 more. A good brunch for original price, not special price.
Service was awful. Only serving the brunch buffet, not regular menu, but our waiter did not refill drink or clear plates. It took us 10 minutes for him to come by and get check. Other waiters appeared to be more attentive.
We arrived at the restaurant shortly after it opened. We ordered the loaded tater totes and it wasn't until 20 min later when our server told us that they were out of it. How can they be out of an appetizer when they just opened? It would have been nice if they told us that. I ordered the New England Clam chowder soup. It did not taste like a New England Clam chowder soup. The seasoning was off and the potatoes were cut too large.
The menu on open table and the menu at the restaurant are totally different. This place is not gluten free friendly and when I asked if they had a gluten free bun, I was laughed at by the server. I asked for no bun, and it came with a bun, talk about cross contamination! They did have gluten free beer, though. The menu is overdone with fried foods and has very few options for those with any restrictions. My boyfriend has none of these and he even rated the food as just okay. I like the outdoor seating and their drink list is okay.
In an area with countless options, Front Page is to be used when you can't get a table anywhere else.
Food was average at best, service was slow (our order taker came back to the table 10 minutes after taking our order and asked "what did you order again?") and prices are not super pricey but certainly not a bargain.
Lasting impression was how run down and dark the place was. Really not much of an ambiance.
Doubt I'd return again, unless again, I am in need of a table at Noon at the last minute.
Standard fare served in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. A step or two up from a sports bar. Our server was extremely friendly. Food was good and the price was right. I would definitely go again and would recommend Front Page for a casual (and business casual) lunch.
We were there for brunch. The restaurant seemed rundown since the last time we were there a few years ago. There was no one at the door to greet us, plates and food were not replenished promptly, and the servicer was not attentive. A lot of money for food that tasted like they bought it at Costco and warned up.
My fiancee and I went to Front Page for brunch this past weekend, and it was underwhelming. The food was fine, and the buffet looked pretty good, but I was disappointed with the service. There was no hostess to greet us when we entered the restaurant, and there was a group of people also waiting for the hostess. When we were finally seated, our waitress rushed us into ordering. Front Page would do well to hire some more seasoned restaurant professionals.
We enjoyed our booth for a business lunch and were able to engage in conversation with no worry of being overheard. Our server offered excellent service and delivered our food quickly. The menu offered a variety and included daily specials. This is a great restaurant for the area and could see as a at place to grab a meal and watch a sporting event on the TV's.
My family had Easter Day Brunch at Front Page in Arlington, Virginia. We had a late reservation but the food was good. Some things were not replenished as we waited in line but they had a little later with the exception of the fruit and desserts. The replenished bacon was not fully cooked so no one ate it. The mimosas were very good, next time I will try a Bellini. Overall we had a wonderful time, attentive waiters, maitre'd was nice and professional, just great people. I will return again and again for sure. They were all very attentive and kind to my elderly mother, which we really appreciated.
Been here for brunch with a large group several times. We always make reservations ahead of time and a large table is always ready in the back of the restaurant somewhat secluded. The brunch buffet is delicious but could have more options. Our server was extremely helpful, attentive and friendly in the beginning. After our large group had 'brunched' for about an hour and a half he became much less attentive and helpful. Manager stopped by the table several times as well. Price isn't bad for brunch in that area, and mimosas are $1!
