There may have been a bit of a rocky start when the long-running Georgetown bistro relocated to Reston in 2015 (Tom Sietsema was unimpressed). But after a menu revamp from chef Will Artley (who has since left the restaurant), things seem to be humming along nicely. Service can still occasionally be spotty, but the solid food and stylish setting make it one of the better bets in the Town Center.

"… I want to like this reincarnation of the Georgetown restaurant that went dark last August after a 15-year run, I really do: Whipped up by Capital Restaurant Concepts, it’s a homegrown business; mezze and skewers of meat are a fun way to eat; the dining room, in the Reston Town Center, is cool in ivory and turquoise, with curved seating that puts the open kitchen on display. Meanwhile, an outdoor patio lets you graze on crisp falafel and juicy lamb chops under the stars. … Consistency is one of the hardest things for a restaurant to achieve, and Neyla isn’t nailing it — not yet, at least." See Full Review…»

"This long-time Georgetown Middle-Eastern restaurant is now in Reston Town Center, Chef Will Artley should bring a breathe of fresh air."

This Asian-influenced seafood restaurant is from Chef Jeff Tunks' Passion Food Restaurant Group, which also owns DC Coast, Acadiana, Fuego and others. The menu features simple grilled fish and a handful of "Chef's Specialties," plus a good raw bar and average sushi. A second location is now opened in Bethesda.

"Jeff Tunks’s Reston seafood palace has a shimmering new sibling inside a downtown Bethesda condo building. Few other restaurants in the area serve pescatarians so well, and the kitchens at both locations—overseen by longtime chef de cuisine Chris Clime—excel with a wide range of styles, including New England-inspired fry-ups, ceviche, and sushi. (In Bethesda, a dedicated sushi chef turns out terrific rolls.) The raw bar is a particular strength. …" See Full Review…»

"A polished, crowded, expensive seafood restaurant featuring raw bar, fresh fish, good wines by the glass, and terrible beers."

This rapidly-expanding local chain with locations in the DC area, New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, offers healthy, good-quality salads. With its emphasis on fresh, local ingredients and calories posted on the menu, it's one of our picks for healthy "cheap eats."

The last word from Washingtonian is this badly outdated review of the original Georgetown location. The chain has expanded up the East Coast and hosts a yearly music festival. But it still follows the same basic format: salads and yogurt, featuring local ingredients and numerous toppings. See Full Review…»

Silver diner is a local chain which, at first glance, looks like a soulless national one. Yet these retro-looking diners offer a seasonal menu featuring local ingredients and a host of healthful choices.

"… Silver Diner isn’t your average diner. The drinks list includes a number of local beers and wines, the quality of ingredients has spiked dramatically with the commitment in recent years to more local produce and meat, and the kitchens work with a surprisingly light hand. This is far from the greasy spoon you might have presumed…. Yes, service can drag, and the ten-page menu has more than a few potholes…, but then you take a chance on an unexpectedly juicy bison burger with pesto, goat cheese, and red peppers and all (well, almost all) is forgiven. …" See Full Review…»
