The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. <br />Virginia is for lovers (of seafood)! Our two-story restaurant is double the fun with entrances on both levels for easy entrée. Choose to make a splash in the downstairs dining room or in the bar upstairs. Our landscaped interior patio is also a popular lure.<br /><br />Our convenient restaurant location within Tysons Galleria II will get you hooked. Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker.<br /><br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

A well-kept secret nestled in the heart of Vienna offering elegant dining within a warm and intimate setting. Our classic Italian cuisine has been ranked among the best in the Washington, D.C. area.

This is American Regional Cuisine at its classic, pub-inspired best. The food is fun and what we like to call “approachable”. You’ll also enjoy some twists on the classics with taste-inspired ideas like our Dirty Caesar Salad and Greek Turkey Burger. At the American Tap Room we believe in using local ingredients as much as possible and, yes, everything we serve goes well with beer.<br /><br />Ranging from weekend brunch, to a casual lunch outing or an after-work gathering in our bar, each dining experience is uniquely enjoyable.<br /><br />Enjoy your time with us on our outdoor patio, inside by the fireplace, or by booking a private event.

"Our first time at the Reston location, and having been to the Arlington Tap Room a couple of years ago I had high hopes. We were seated relatively quickly, and the pretzel appetizer was great. The meal (Tap Burger and Chicken/Waffles) was disappointing. Cheese had no flavor, and the chicken were thighs with fat and other non-edible parts remaining."

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.

"I first went to J Gilberts for a work event, and had been wanting to visit with the family. I finally had the chance this weekend, and the food was superb. We were seated right at our reservation time, and the service was attentive but not overbearing. Will visit again."
