The Cheesecake Factory

Reviewed By Sidji - London, United Kingdom

Cheesecake Factory is one of those places that you can come to over and over without getting bored because of the super extensive menu and amazing selection of desserts!

This time I had the miso salmon which was delicious and the salted caramel cheesecake which was amazing!

We also had the mango and key lime cheesecake which was nice but not the best.

Service is always good and on this occasion Tara was excellent.

Have no idea what people are talking about, tried the vanilla cupcake and the chocolate cupcakes., the frosting were pretty good, but the cake it self was horrible. It was dry and wasn't cooked all the way through, tasted rough. Also, tried the coconut macaroons, which were pretty good, but the cupcakes weren't good at all.

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.

....if I were a loving brother of his, I'd gently encourage him to bring in a consultant to "Do something about the #@& racket!" :) My guess is that there's a way to add some sound absorption and still retain the wonderful interior design. ----- I've seen other postings of the loud environment, so, business is so good that its not necessary/desirable to get the decibels down.......

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.

Visited for a business dinner and enjoyed the set $30 menu. The steak was heavenly as was the key lime pie. Only downside was the speed with which the food came out. We had not finished the Entree and the mains were delivered.

Overall worth a visit.

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.

Cafe Renaissance

Reviewed By Marsha R - Springfield, Virginia

We were warmly greeted when we entered the restaurant and given our choice of tables. Wonderful ambience and atmosphere, delicious meals, and excellent service. The restaurant manager (he was much more than that) mingled among the tables, and in a timely and appropriate way checking to make sure everyone was happy. The restaurant filled up quickly (we had a 6:30 PM reservation), but the tone was quiet, murmuring voices and an enjoyable get together with friends we hadn't seen in some time. The manager came around after dinner was done and dispensed a perfect portion of port wine to top off the meal. A very enjoyable experience we will happily repeat.
