"We were very pleased with our experience at the restaurant. Entrees were really good, a Filet and Shrimp special and the Scallops. Service was great. Lots of choices as to seating. We'll be back"

Ciao Osteria is an authentic Italian eatery featuring delicious entrees and Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas made completely from scratch. Our goal is to serve true traditional Italian recipes made with the freshest, most authentic ingredients available, while making sure our guests are treated as family at our table. Chef Antonino believes you should never underestimate the power of a home cooked Sicilian meal. After many, many years of hard work in his kitchen, he decided to share his recipes with us. You can expect only an authentic taste of Sicily when you eat with us at Ciao Osteria. From the moment you walk in our front door, we want you to feel like you are a part of our family. .<br />Buon appetito!

"The food and service were definitely very good. It's a relatively small place and since it's popular it gets very crowded. Bar area is very small too so there is really no place to wait comfortably and you will wait even with the Open Table reservation in hand. We were only about 15-20 minutes beyond but I felt like I was in everybody's way standing there trying to get a drink. It was our first time there so I would give it another shot and adjust my expectations."

"We were in from out of town and chose this place based on reviews. It probably would have been OK but my steak was served undercooked and my wife's pasta dish was way overcooked. By the time we got our food it was late and that's always tough. Despite having what appeared to be lots of wait staff we could never find someone to ask questions, request more wine, get bread, whatever. The food that finally came was okay and it appeared that the other diners were enjoying themselves so maybe it was just a bad experience for us. Good luck!"

Classic American food with a contemporary twist in a relaxed, upscale atmosphere. We offer small sharing plates with big flavor. Grab some dishes to share while enjoying our highly-rated wine list and hand made original cocktails. Stone's Cove is a warm, welcoming place where guests gather 'round like friends, even if they come alone.

At McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant in the Reston Town Center, our hallmark is the freshest fish and seafood from around the world served in a traditional decor. Our fresh daily menu highlights favorites from our Pacific Northestern origins-Alaskan King Salmon, Wild halibut, and Northwest Oysters-along with East Coast Specialties like Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab and Maine Lobster. All this is presented in a handsome decor of rich mahogany accented with copper paneling, custom chandeliers and Virginia-themed stained glass ceilings. <br />

"We had problems from the start. When I made the reservation I requested one of the 'Snugs', the booths around the outside of the main dining area. We had to wait, which was fine, because two of the groups were taking a long time so we went to the bar. We were then seated when the issues started. Either no one was assigned to our table or they just didn't realize we were there. Someone came and poured water. Then someone else took my wife's wine order. Ten minutes later still no wine and no one had stopped by to ask about appetizers, tell us about specials, nothing. Finally got the hostess to send someone and track down the drinks. Crab legs were so over-steamed you couldn't crack them because they were too pliable. Just a mess"

Firestone's Culinary Tavern, opened in 1999, is located in downtown Frederick's picturesque Historic District. It is housed in a 1921 building that was initially the home of Shipley's Department Store. The restaurant combines outstanding cuisine with the casual atmosphere of a neighborhood tavern. The Washington Post says, "the atmosphere is prime...the food is, too!".

Texas de Brazil is carving out a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas. <br />Treat yourself to our 50-60 item gourmet salad area including appetizers, fresh vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As your dining experience continues, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink or steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance that is Texas de Brazil.

"We've been here several times and recently it's been a little hit or miss. Some of the selections were so over salted/seasoned we couldn't even eat them. They fixed up some lightly seasoned but after a while you just lose your appetite and for what you spend here it should all be good, I think. We asked specifically for lamb chops and filet and it was pretty slow coming out. The salad bar is very good though."

"We really enjoyed our visit to Seasons 52. Flatbread lobster special was amazing; duck sandwich awesome, butternut squash soup and stuffed mushrooms also terrific. Our server, Sandra was very knowledgeable and very helpful with some food restrictions we have. All in all it was outstanding!"
