"A little pricey for smallish portion but fine. I'd try it again at dinner."

Lyon Hall is a modern bistro serving approachable Alsatian-inspired fare, including an extensive selection of house-made charcuterie and sausages. The menu changes with the season to highlight fresh produce from local farms, as do the pastries, desserts and fresh bread.The affordable wine list focuses on French selections, while the impressive beer list offers an extensive selection of European drafts and bottles. Located in an historic art deco building in the heart of downtown Clarendon, Lyon Hall is a vibrant neighborhood spot with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Perfect for an elegant dinner in the stylish dining room, frankfurters and beer flights with friends at the lively bar, or enjoying a warm evening on the patio with a bottle of wine and selections from the dynamic cheese menu. The private room located in our mezzanine level offers a great spot for small to medium size groups enjoying a private meal or cocktail reception.

"Really enjoyed our evening here. Good food - a little pricey - and nice place. Quite loud some of the time, and I hate when they seat five at a table where one person is stuck off the end. I also hate when they won't seat you because your whole party isn't there even though they're just parking, and you have to hang around the entrance getting in everyone's way. But overall a return visit will probably happen."

Il Forno Restaurant is coming to the ground floor of the Virginia Tech Research Center building. “Il Forno” means “The Oven” so look for excellent pizza from their oven, being imported from Italy.

"Food over sauced and over seasoned. Not subtle at all. Watery martini. Over priced evening. Great wait staff but won't be returning."

"I booked Equinox for the outdoor dining opportunity but it turned out we couldn't use that space and ended up inside. Honestly I wouldn't have chosen it if I'd known. The food is good but pricey. The best thing is the really excellent coffee. Our waiter was excellent but the food took forever to arrive. At lunchtime this is particularly bad. Overall we had a nice experience but i don't think I would book again."
