Chef Geoff’s newest restaurant is in the heart of Tysons Corner. Our expansive menu is designed to please. Try some of our favorites like Big Shrimp and Very Gouda Grits, the tender Filet Mignon with Warm Bacon Relish, or our handmade Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Truffle Butter. Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all day on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff.

Carmine’s is a family style, value-driven restaurant concept with locations in NYC, NJ, Nassau Bahamas, and Washington DC. Restaurateur Artie Cutler created Carmine’s with one goal in mind: to open a restaurant that would serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast, featuring extra large portions of home-style antipasto, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on extra large platters designed for sharing. Carmine’s is the perfect place to casually enjoy friends and family over great food and wine, with excellent service, the way it used to be at grandma’s house.

"I have loved Carmine's since it was only located in Times Square NYC. The DC location does not disappoint. The food is great as is the service. TIP: Make sure to ask for olive oil with the bread, AMAZING. The tiramisu is also not to be missed."

Hy's Toronto has everything you could expect from a classic steakhouse in an elegant, upscale atmosphere. At the entrance, the sleek and elegant lounge lures with the promise of perfectly chilled martinis. And each unique dining area is more beautiful than the last, from the front room, centred by the famous steak grill, through the open and light-filled atrium to the intimate mezzanine with cozy fireplace and mahogany wine cabinets. Our white coated servers will guide you with professionalism and good humor, and our award winning wine list will tempt you with well chosen labels from around the world. Sink into a plush banquette, enjoy our famous cheese toast and a caesar salad, prepared in the dining room, then savor one of the classic cuts of Canadian Prime beef...and you'll remember why Hy's has been a Canadian favorite for over fifty years.

"Celebrated our first anniversary with a trip to Toronto and were SO glad we stumbled upon Hy's! The food was fabulous and the service was just amazing. Highly recommended and will definitely return if ever in the Toronto area again!"

Lebanese Taverna creates an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Each restaurant is a "home away from home," even though the food and ambiance are from across the globe. Whether you are visiting for the first time, the twentieth, or have been coming to a Lebanese Taverna for over 29 years, you will feel welcomed and like a member of the family. The atmosphere is bustling and each of the restaurants has its own design and slightly different flavors. That is because the food is made fresh, and each Chef has his or her own "touch" that keeps you coming back for more. We look forward to serving you again and again.

"I am a frequent patron of Seasons 52 at Tysons and this experience was a bit unusual. Our waitress was nice, but disappeared a lot. When our flatbread came out, it hadn't been cut. We had to wait a good 10 minutes before we caught someone's attention to have it taken to the kitchen and cut. We had ordered the special flatbread, lobster and mozzarella, it was good....until i bit down on a large piece of shell. It grossed me out. Again, unusual for Seasons 52, maybe it was just an off day or something."

"Roy's is one of my favorite restaurants and the Baltimore location does not disappoint! Unfortunately the menu online is not updated and so I was craving the crab pretzel which was not on the menu, I "settled" for the lobster potstickers and pork ribs instead which were delicious as always. Highly recommended."

"Our reservation changed from 10 to 12 at the last minute, they accommodated us and moved us to a larger room so that part of the service was great. However, the rest of the service was very slow. It was a business lunch and it ended up taking over 2 hours. I understand we were a part of 12 and had to be moved, but it just took WAY too long for us to order and for us to receive our food and then check. Food was delicious and I would return, however, be sure to tell the server if you are in a rush..."

Santiago's Bodega presents a unique tasting experience featuring small plates that hopscotch between decadent (a warm Camembert wedge topped with sauteed garlic, onions, almonds, apricots, chopped dates, bell peppers), refreshing (yellow fin tuna, avocado, mango ceviche), exotic (lamb patties with fresh thyme, sherry, lemon zest) and just plain comfort-food-delicious (Roman meatballs on angel hair, or fried potatoes in a spicy sauce). As nothing costs over $15, there’s no major commitment, and if the relationship doesn't work, move along to the next selection. The menu’s ideal for sharing and for mixing up in endless combinations. Alternate between chevre tartlet, spanakopita, or smoked salmon carpaccio. Invent your own meal. Dining in such a way permits the rules of wine pairings to step aside like snooty impostors, and what goes best with dinner is exactly what tempts you. Santiago’s Bodega is a good-natured, low-key, food-lovers hangout, a neighborhood restaurant. - Margit Bisztray
