Why would a restaurant born and raised in Massachusetts open a location in Woodbridge, Virginia? Doesn’t seem like a path the average restaurant would be expected to take. But then, we’re not the average restaurant — something you might have guessed from our name. Now to answer the question. We chose Woodbridge because it’s a thriving community in a beautiful part of the country. Leesburg and Gaithersburg — the other two communities we’ve settled into outside of our native Massachusetts — both welcomed us warmly, so we think we’ll be at home in Woodbridge too. there are five breweries, three wineries and numerous farmer’s markets within a 20-mile radius of our soon-to-be home in Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center. That means we’ll have plenty to satisfy our preference for locally sourced ingredients. Our chef takes a creative approach to made-from-scratch food, where everything is prepared to order (aka, your way), where service is over the top and prices are not. That’s us.

Family owned and operated for over 30 years. Old Venice is the perfect place to enjoy time with the ones you love. Tastefully decorated, with multiple dining areas including our garden patios and bar featuring live music. You will immediately be enraptured with the European ambiance of one of San Diego’s finest dining venues.

"On a recent vacation in San Diego my husband and I stopped in to Old Venice at Point Loma. It is a lovely restaurant - tucked on a neighborhood side street. While we had a pleasant experience - it was pricey and the food was not exceptional."

A San Diego tradition since 1969, the Brigantine has received numerous accolades during our 40+ year history: "BEST SEAFOOD", "BEST CASUAL SEAFOOD", "BEST HAPPY HOUR", and even "BEST SWORDFISH IN THE WORLD", according to USA Today - just to name a few. <br /><br />Well-known for our signature Clam Chowder, Grilled Swordfish & Crème Brûlée, the Brigantine is a favorite among locals for consistently fresh seafood, succulent steaks & grilled meats. <br /><br />A favorite destination for locals & tourists alike, the Coronado Brigantine is located in the heart of the village, immediately adjacent to the historic Hotel Del Coronado. <br /><br />Completely remodeled in 2005, the "new" Coronado Brigantine is an elegant adaptation of its former self. The addition of an intimate private dining room, a surround-seating bar and street-side outdoor patio have been equally well-received. <br /><br />The Coronado Brigantine serves dinner 7 nights a week, as well as lunch Monday-Saturday. <br />

"A recent visit to San Diego brought us to Coronado and after reading great reviews we opted to try this quaint seafood restaurant. We enjoyed a very good meal. The kitchen was happy to accommodate special requests and modifications to entrees. The service was very good and the environment was very enjoyable - numerous smaller alcoves provided a nice private experience."

What better place to be, than three blocks from the White House, walking distance from the Mall, across the street from the Warner Theatre, and right in the heart of Downtown? For over 11 years, Chef Geoff's Downtown has happily served Capitol Hill, theatergoers, business brokers, neighborhood friends and D.C. visitors alike with our New American Cuisine. Our expansive menu is designed to please. Enjoy 1/2 Price CG Burgers and $8.95 Pizza Pies during our phenomenal happy hour. Join us every Sunday for Brunch and every Monday for Half Price Wines. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to seeing you soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff

"Chef Geoff offers a good dining option for before and/or after a downtown theatre event. I would recommend sitting in the back room as the noise level in the general dining room can be very intense. All around good experience."

"Not Your Average Joe's in Woodbridge offers a consistently "GRAND" experience! The food is fabulous - always fresh and with monthly menu specials - you never get bored. My husband and I go every week. You can make a meal on the fabulous bread and oil combo they offer - it's addictive! My husband loves their steak tips and I love the fresh salads and seafood and I love the fact that the kitchen staff is always flexible and accommodating to special requests or "tweaks" to menu selections for personal needs/tastes. The wait staff is superior - ensuring you of a wonderful experience time after time!"
