"The service was impeccable. We were only there for a quick bite before a theater show. Luckily it was not very busy this night, so they were able to get us served quickly, but it didn't feel rushed. We also were both eating vegetarian dishes, and they had some good choices. A 'must-have' dish is the cauliflower - it was perfectly cooked and had an amazing complex flavor, which is not what you'd expect. I would like to go back when I'm not on a tight schedule and can enjoy a full meal experience."

"It is Vegas, after all, but expect to shell out some of your winnings for dinner. It is a great place for groups - although very loud - so you will need to shout over the thumping bass and other diners. The high ceiling doesn't help with the noise factor - but, again, it's Vegas, so - par for the course. The food was good and our server was attentive without being overbearing."

Bringing to mind the authentic taquerias of the legendary marketplaces of Mexico, Chef Donna Willey brings you Canonita. This casual and exciting Mexican dining experience features an authentic, rustic menu of "Mexico-City Soul Food" with delectable tacos, ceviches and mouth watering barbacoa made with savory fire-roasted meats, grilled vegetables and the freshest seafood. Hand-made tortillas, refreshing salsas and fresh-juice Star Margaritas provide guests <br />with an unforgettable "true taste of Mexico." The bustling open-air kitchen adds to the home-style warmth and energy of Canonita as do the patio festoon lighting and umbrellas with lively Salsa and Tejano music. Behind the bar many imported cervezas are featured alongside old-world Sangria and many premium Mexican tequilas, perfect for relaxed sipping.

"We had a seat "outside" looking over the Venetian waterway as gondolas drifted by. The guacamole and chips were fresh and delicious. Our main entrees were fine, but nothing memorable. Our server was kind and attentive. It is a nice location and a good value."

"Our meal was very good. We recommend it. Our only criticism was that our server was a bit preoccupied with a large party table and our 2-top was a side note for him. Thus, service from him was spotty."

"My meal was excellent but my husband's dish wasn't. I had a light dinner of oysters and the arugula salad with pimento cheese puffs -- SO GOOD! I highly recommend it. My husband ordered the pressed chicken - I have had this dish here before and really enjoyed it. But he didn't care for it -- said it was bland and under seasoned. I took a bite and agreed; the skin and flavor of the chicken was not as good as I remembered. Our server was very nice. He knew we were going to a show at the Kennedy Center so he made sure we got out on time, but we never felt rushed."

"Our reservation was for a business lunch, but since Monday was a federal holiday, the restaurant was only serving brunch. It was our first time at the restaurant, so brunch ended up being a pleasant surprise. The brunch buffet gave us an opportunity to try a little bit of everything - all quite delicious and very fresh. I also appreciated that only small amounts of food were portioned out at a time - elevating the freshness quotient. The only downside (for us) was that, since we were working that day, our brunch was brief and we couldn't indulge in Bloody Marys and mimosas. I will definitely go back. I think it would make a great future business lunch spot as well as for brunch and cocktails during off-hours."

Pristine seafood & prime steaks. The freshest and best available seafood is delivered twice daily to complement our world famous Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse steaks. Crab cakes, frog legs, and new favorites highlight our new menu. Due to the restaurant being located within the Rivers casino, YOU MUST BE 21 TO ENTER.

"On a business trip, I was a solo diner, but I wasn't treated like one. I got the same level of attention from service that the 5-top next to me received. My server did not make me feel "left out". This is a chop house, but I wasn't in the mood for steak. Instead I enjoyed their amazing sweet chili calamari (tender, delicious, cooked perfectly) as a starter and the seared tuna chopped salad (light, refreshing and satisfying) as my entree. My only critique was I would have liked the tuna slices to be slightly thicker. The ultra thin slices, which would be perfect for sashimi or sushi, just get lost in the pile of greens. Next time I'm visiting, I will definitely return to try one of their amazing-looking steaks."

Opened in 2010 in Falls Church, VA. Pizzeria Orso is family-friendly authentic Neapolitan Pizzeria that also showcases an assortment of globally-inspired small plates. Pizzeria Orso features an enormous custom-made volcanic brick oven handcrafted by Forno Napoletano for the restaurant, in Italy. True to traditional Neapolitan technique, the pizza dough – which uses a sour starter - at Pizzeria Orso is naturally leavened, never refrigerated, and baked in the wood-burning oven at approximately 800°F for 90 seconds. Pizzeria Orso was named as one of the top 50 Best Restaurants by Northern Virginia magazine and was also recently awarded Best Italian Restaurant by Northern Virginia Magazine and inventive globally-inspired small plates available in the DC area.

"This was our third visit and it was disappointing. Perhaps it was due to a busy Friday night, but everything about our meal was just "meh" compared to our first 2 experiences here (less busy, more quiet). The calamari starter was about the only good thing about our meal that night. We ordered two pizzas -- crust was too thin, flaccid and a bit chewy; the (delicious) toppings slid right off. The goat cheese ravioli was served with an overly sweet balsamic drizzle and dried cranberries that overpowered the dish. Our server, while very pleasant and nice, pushed all of our food out at once - we ordered starters, mains -- and they literally all arrived at the table at the same time cramping our small 2-top table. Made us feel very, very rushed."

What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We're creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe. At Not Your Average Joe's, we build like we cook: creatively, from scratch, with guests in mind.

"It's easy to fill up on their addictive foccacia bread and olive oil/garlic dip. But don't! Our meals were good, service was prompt and our server was very pleasant. They are very flexible on food substitutions and had a lot of variation in their menu. We were visiting from out of town (staying at the NYLO across the street), so it was very convenient and it was nice to have dining options other than fast food. My only criticism is that the lettuce in my entree salad, which did not have any 'warm' components, was somewhat wilted and room temp. I would have preferred it crisp and cool. But other than that we enjoyed it."
