In the tradition of Italy's trattorias, the sight, sounds and aromas of authentic Italian cuisine are recreated fresh everyday at Il Fornaio. Literally "the baker" in Italian, Il Fornaio offers wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game; housemade and imported pastas; pizzas from a wood burning oven; fresh salads and housemade soups; antipasti and a wide variety of desserts made daily from scratch. The first two weeks of each month a special menu from a different region of Italy is featured as part of Festa Regionale.

"Always our go to for Italian and great service! We did not like the lobster bisque which tasted too much like fish soup but they quickly took it back and gave us dessert on the house. Manager came by two times to make sure we were happy and they always do. Fantastic salad and dinner!!"

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.

"We LOVE J. Gilberts and visit frequently and especially for special occasions. We brought family here this time and they raved about it all weekend. Our waiter, Greg, was amazing! The steak is absolutely perfect as is all of their salads and sides. Never disappoints!"

"We have been coming to J. Gilberts for many years and even with many new steak restaurants popping up, this is still our favorite. We always come back for the service, good steak and value! This was our daughters choice for her 13th birthday celebration this visit and it was so great even with a free dessert of her choice. Well done!"

 Hooked Seafood & Sushi Bar
Hooked Seafood & Sushi Bar
Hooked Seafood & Sushi Bar offers fresh seafood and sushi that is hand cut & each day. Enjoy "the finest seafood in the region" in our contemporary, chic environment more likely found in Los Angeles or New York. See why OpenTable Diners have consistently rated us as one of the best seafood restaurants in the area. NorthernVirginia Magazine Readers recently voted Hooked as the "Best Sushi" in Virginia, and food critic Warren Rohas included Hooked in the 50 Best Restaurants for the past 4 years. <br /><br />Our large patio is an ideal area to enjoy a cocktail near the water fountains or hang out by the gas fire pit. Please note that we will do our best to meet your seating requests outside, but due to weather conditions cannot guarantee immediate seating outside.<br /><br />We're located at the intersection of Route 7 and Cascades Parkway in the Target Shopping Center. <br />

"We have been very regular customers of Hooked for many years starting at their original location. The past 2-3 times we went we noticed changes in the venue, service and food quality. The menu has decreased in the sushi offerings and something just is not right. The sushi is still good and our meal was not terrible but definitely now as amazing as it used to be. We likely won't go back after this last experience."

Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. Step into Wildfire, a steak and chophouse with the aura of a 1940's dinner club. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for an evening with friends or just the two of you. So order a martini, listen to the music and prepare your appetite for some of the most delicious American cuisine you'll find anywhere.
