Four Sisters Restaurant

Reviewed By llwid - Oak Creek, Wisconsin

Vietnamese food. Very nice looking restaurant with friendly staff. Beautiful flower arrangements and great food. I have been here twice now and highly recommend it. The spring rolls are a great starter, has them soft and fried. I particularly love the noodle dishes and all the great mix ins like cilantro, nuts, sprouts, and lettuce if you want to wrap. Topped it off with iced coffee.

Nostos

Reviewed By RichardinOhio - Williamsburg, Virginia

I am not certain that Nostos is deserving of such a high standard in Washingtonian's Top 100 Restaurants for 2018. It is a very high class place and reservations are simply a must. It is a very contemporary atmosphere, superb service, but the food is no better that several other Greek restaurants we've experienced in the city and the prices are high for a small-plates experience.
It occupies the first floor of an office building across highway 7 from Tysons Corner Mall. Their outside sign was not lit last night, adding to the challenge of finding it. The service was superb, just as you'd expect from a place with their reputation.
Our group of four shared a Greek salad (what you'd expect from such a dish, except too heavy on tomatoes), flaming cheese (excellent!), and tzatziki (also excellent). My swordfish skewers were done perfectly--the best dish of the night. The spanikopita was not warm enough. The other couple had octopus and said it was overdone: tough and chewy.
We had been to the Loudon County wineries during the day, so we opted only for water with dinner and our bill, WITHOUT drinks, was $180 including a 20% tip. Very high for small plates and water. None of us had an expensive entree.
I think you can get great Greek food several places in DC for much less money.

Great service, food is good with gluten free options. Personally I would prefer less fried choices and more grilled seafood with steamed veggies. Reservations are definitely needed since it's a popular location for groups of friends, family or co-workers.

Present restaurant offer an ambiance of tranquility with our indoor cascading pond that allows our guest to enjoy a quiet dinner with friends with a glass of wine. We also cater to special events and occasions. Surprise your quest with a catered and elaborate Vietnamese buffet.. Thank you to Mr. Tom Sietsema of the Washington Post for the kind review: Editorial Review 2009 Fall Dining Guide By Tom Sietsema Washington Post Staff Writer Plenty of Vietnamese restaurants serve green papaya salad. None that I've sampled makes a better impression than Present's. Freshly roasted nuts give the dish an edge, and so does a "bowl" of purple cabbage, although the crowning touch is lavished on the surface: matchsticks of rich liver instead of the usual beef jerky. Other Vietnamese restaurants are welcoming, but few more so than this place. Need a recommendation? Want to know more about an ingredient? The servers respond with enthusiasm and intelligence, and they make top-notch guides for novices in particular. I've eaten in this serene dining room at least half a dozen times now, yet I always find something new to appreciate.

This was my first visit to a Vietnamese restaurant and it won’t be my last. My guest is a native Vietnamese and guided me to three excellent selections. Muc rang muoi (calamari), Banh beo chen (rainbow white clouds), Goi hai san trai thom (Treasure from the sea). Attentive and knowledgeable staff and very attractive decor. The food was served in an attractive display and was delicious. Excellent value at under $45 for both.

Amoo's Restaurant

Reviewed By Misiper - Vienna, Virginia

Let me say that the service was extremely attentive with the owner making a formal welcome visit to the table. The staff cared deeply about our satisfaction. However, the food, although adequate, was so much like other various Persian and Afghan restaurants that we have frequented over the years. The standard dish has a skewer of meat (chicken and lamb for my order) with a heaping portion of rice. The meal was large enough to share. However, it lacked flavor. The bread was delicious.

This is not to stay that you will be disappointed. It’s just that with such amazing service, the food did feel like it was a bit of a letdown. All four of us in our dining party felt the same way.

Just couldn't fault this 5 star restaurant in any way! Staff were friendly and food was incredible! Staff could make knowledgable recommendations of food and drinks. I'm gluten free and the waitress knew exactly what was and wasn't gluten free! The prawn cocktail was the best prawns I've ever had!

Eddie V's Prime Seafood

Reviewed By Anonthego

We went for a friends bday dinner with 10 people. We were greeted and seated promptly and our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Few people ordered the pomegranate mule totally disappointed. The maverick was the best cocktail by vote. We got the calamari which was decent if you like sweet foods. The lobster tacos were sloppy and very forgettable. For mains I got the surf and turf the steak was charred and very over seasoned . The lobster tail was also very salty. New York strip was ok. The sole was liked by two people. As for sides : Au gratin potatoes were greasy and the actual potatoes were super Aldente to the point they were crunchy. Brussels sprouts came with a mountain of bacon on top . You might love this if you like bacon I don’t ! Overall I would say this trip to Eddie vs was quite disappointing. I think capital grill in Tyson’s delivers a much more refined level of quality.

There was a time this was the best steskhouse around. They are becoming just another chain. Dinner Thanksgiving day they ran out of bluecheese olives for dirty matinis. How is that possible? Stuff more. They ran out of pumpkin cheesecake and apple pie. Really? We were there two days ago and the ran out of Makers Mark Bourbon. Huh? A guy at the bar was so slobbering drunk, I was actually concerned there was going to be an issue. He kept trying to talk to us which was very uncomfortable for all of us. But they kept serving him. The food is still good but all in all, this place has lost it.

Peking Gourmet Inn

Reviewed By ITRT - Virginia

We visited here (13 of us) for the annual birthday lunch. Food and service were excellent. Another plus all the waiters/waitresses sang Happy Birthday including the owner. Our waiter John was attentive and made sure we had everything we wanted. The lunch menus for $10.50 are a bargain. It comes with our choice of soup, egg rolls, fried rice and entree. You can also order from the dinner menu as did two of our group ordering the Beef Proper. I would suggest you make a reservation for a group and it is a very popular restaurant. Thumbs up for this restaurant.
