In the heart of Northern Virginia's high-tech corridor and in the Tysons Corner/McLean area, McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Steaks is the perfect place to enjoy fine dining with family, friends and business associates. The handsome interior of rich mahogany wood, brass and stained glass creates an inviting, upscale, yet unpretentious atmosphere.<br /><br />From fresh seafood and shellfish to aged steaks and garden fresh salads, our goal is to exceed your dining expectations.

"Food was excellent. Had the field greens salad with walnuts and blue cheese. Then salmon with aspargus and raspberries. Delicious. Waiter detracted from the experience. Tried to dominate our concersation. Then appeared annoyed when we didnt play along. Said some very strange things. Just stick to polite prompt service and will make dining guests happy."

"Went for lunch with business colleagues. Place was super busy but still a group of 5 shouldn't be an issue and we had reservations. Everyone around us was seated AFTER us and yet was serviced their food BEFORE us. Ordered a shared app of the saganaki (flaming cheese) which took forever to arrive and yet within 5 minutes our entrees appeared. REALLY hate that - wouldn't order an app if my main course is going to arrive at same time. No time to enjoy the cheese which needs to be eaten when hot. Food was okay but not great.
Had heard great things about this restaurant from others so maybe I need to try again

"The V", Virginia's Eatery & Brew House, prides itself in providing a diverse menu featuring the freshest ingredients and many locally grown, raised, or made products. With a focus on craft beer, many from Virginia, our bar also offers a full bar and wine list. The elegant yet comfortable dining and bar areas accent your visit with us. We open daily for lunch with full menu service through the dinner hours, followed by a lively entertainment program throughout the week.

"First time and was disappointed. Bar is too small so had to sit in deserted dining room. Food was okay. Special i saw on website apparently doesn't actually exist. Shouldn't be allowed to have brewery in their name.
Server was great. Gave his best effort.

Mon Ami Gabi is a classic French bistro and steakhouse. The traditional menu features classics such as the warm Onion Soup Au Gratin, Frisée & Bacon Salad with a soft-poached egg and croutons, Roast Chicken grand-mère style with mushrooms, bacon and pearl onions, as well as the trademark Steak Frites. At lunch, we offer lighter fare including crepes, quiches and seasonal salads. Come in Saturday and Sunday for our weekend brunch, featuring a Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar.<br />To complement the cuisine, an extensive selection of over 80 boutique French wine varietals are served by the glass or bottle from our signature rolling wine cart.<br />Please Note: Reservations are taken for indoor seating only. Outdoor seating is available on first-come, first-serve bases.

"Eight of us, including out of town guests and locals, had reservations for dinner at Mon Ami. Had the beautiful private dining room which made conversation easy. Menu is fantastic. We had a beautiful seafood starter to share that had shrimp, lobster and oysters. Some had the steak which was excellent. Two had the sole special and i had escargot. All excellent.
Service was excellent! Made us feel special thru out the meal.
One of the best wine lists in RTC. Love the French wines myself.
Cant wait to go back again.

Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all day on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff.

"I love this place for a business lunch. The menu choices are varied and all are delicious. Not the same old borring choices either. Seasonal menu. I had the crab cake with jalepeno tarter sauce - fabulous. Others had the pumpkin gnocchi and the fish tacos. Cant wait to go back!
Surprised they dont think of it first but you can adk for a black napkin so as not to get white lint on your clothes.
