"went on recommendation by an Indian friend. I was impressed with the food as I have not been a fan of Indian since my trip to Mumbai. Butter chicken, chicken biriyani were delicious. the mango ice cream dessert was good, even if it was frozen when served. I shall return or recommend if Indian Food is suggested in the Tysons area."

J. Gilbert's is an "upscale casual" steakhouse serving prime-aged beef cooked over a mesquite wood-fired grill. Guests enjoy various cuts of steak, fresh seafood (including award-winning crab cakes) & other house made favorites like the Maytag Bleu potato chips & Carrot Cake. The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table or host a large party. The extensive martini & wine list offers the perfect compliment to an excellent meal delivered with attentive service. J. Gilbert's is open for weekend lunch, dinner 7 days a week & Sunday Brunch. Reservations are recommended.

A cabin-style watering hole with amazing food and drink, Copperwood Tavern is your oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. Specializing in seasonal American small plates, we feature prime cuts of local game, farm-raised poultry, beef and fresh fish accompanied with hearty, family-style sides.

Sanctuary, with its chandeliers and vaguely gothic ambiance - protected by gargoyles like the sanctuaries of Europe - is elegant, yet comfortable. It is meant to be a haven where food, service and music please the senses. A fireplace warms cold nights - a patio with flowers and herbs celebrates summer. With thick limestone, rough timbers and ceiling beams dating back to the 1860's, it reminds you of that small romantic place you'd love to visit again. <br /><br /><br />Sanctuary serves New American Cuisine, deftly combining immigrant influences from the Mediterranean to Japan into dishes that are delicious, amazing and satisfying. The menu stays enticing with weekday Tasting Menus, special creations Fri./Sat. and menu changes every other month. The StarTribune said, “[I] loved the well-paired wines, the genial service, the cozy surroundings and the kitchen's finesse." <br /><br /><br />Located one block from the Guthrie, it is the perfect place for dinner before or after a show.

The vision for TRIO Grill is simple: provide a fine dining destination that doesn’t take itself too seriously. TRIO blends urban sophistication with the relaxed ambiance of a neighborhood grill. Complemented by an extensive wine program and classic cocktail offerings, the menu provides dining options from signature steaks to seasonal seafood. Whether dining for lunch, dinner or just drinks, customers will always be able to get a reservation in the dining room, outdoor patio or signature cigar lounge and enjoy the sounds of live music. <br /><br />TRIO Grill is named for its three owners; family members who have worked and played alongside each other their entire lives.<br /><br />We hope you enjoy!
