Cafe R is always an outstanding dining expierence, wonderful evening.
This is our Special Event restaurant. The owners are the nicest people you will meet, and their staff are so professional. The meals are always great creations and well-prepared. Our favorite “course” is the flaming Irish Coffee.
Excellent food and service!
Roundup to a 4-star! Attentive services, especially from the super nice/ friendly owner! However, foods is only average to above average at the most. Duck Confit appetizer & Veal are the highlight, Halibut, Snapper & Salmon are only ok!
Outstanding service. Delicious food. Exceptional staff. Wonderful experience!
Cafe Renaissance is my favorite restaurant. Owner Saeed, his chef and staff turn eating out into a most pleasurable experience. The cozy dining room with its fresh floral displays and art-filled walls offers the perfect ambience for a special occasion. I believe that if you try it once, you'll return.
Very nice restaurant with nice atmosphere and good food.
It was good but we felt we would get better attention for our anniversary.
Amazing restaurant family owned. Food was of highest quality and very nicely presented. Service very good. Will definitely be back
My wife and I love coming to this place. Everyone is so hospitable and treats you like a regular. The food is terrific!
Have eaten there for years. We were so glad that it survived the virus shutdowns and we would recommend it highly to anyone who wants lovely atmosphere, delicious food, and attentive staff.
Everything was parfait. Everything. From reception to desert.
We had a wonderful dinner! We started with French onion soup, salad, then both had the roasted halibut. Everything was delicious! Our waitress, Nicole, was very attentive and efficient.
Outside dining. Excellent food and service. Good drinks
I went there at 645 on a Friday and it was packed. That was good to see.
Very nice for anniversary dinner! Charming, excellent food, nice ambiance. We will be back!
Wonderful desserts made in house!
As always, Cade Renaissance was a first class treat for my whole family. We were celebrating a special birthday and we’re well cared for!!! The food, atmosphere, and service were exquisite!!!
We had two kinds of veal… both outstanding. Vegetables were very appealing.
Our large group just tried this neighborhood gem for the first time, and loved it! We ordered from their tasting menu as well as a la carte. The food and service were high quality, and, in my view, beat lots of high-end chain restaurants. The owner was attentive and courteous, offering free dessert to the kids. We sat outdoor, and the waiters and the owner wore masks the whole time, which made us feel quite safe. Highly recommend!
As has been my experience before at this restaurant, the menu struck a lot of the right notes. Fish was prepared expertly, salad was generous, drinks were generous. Service left nothing to be desired.
Food was good
Ambiance was good service excellent
Old World elegance, fine dining, fine wine. The four of us had a wonderful time, no sense of being rushed out to turn the table, personal attention from the owner, and a special birthday dessert. The birthday lady had a special evening, and was very happy.
Celebrates our anniversary there, great food & drinks, nice service and pleasant place.
Definitely come back again!
Very nice experience. Staff was attentive. Food was great!
Great staff. Secret of Vienna, Va. Everyone you interact with here makes feel at home and they are all more than glad go way out of the way to make your dining experience unique and special with personal attention to your wants and needs. They even will sometimes create a desert at your table, just for your table. Not on the menu as far as I know. This just happens and not every visit..... put yourself in their dining care and enjoy a relaxed meal with friends you bring and the friends there to serve you. Plan at least 2.5 hrs meal time for your experience at the Cafe Renaissance!!
You (I) will return.
Saeed and his team were amazing. Such a special night with wonderful food and amazing service. We felt like family. We can’t wait to return!
Excellent food. Romantic dining experience. Easy parking.
Solid food with a nice wine list. great service, super welcoming staff.
This place has been around under same ownership for many years. A meal at Cafe Renaissance is more like going to your local neighborhood cafe than fancy French restaurant and this was best part of the experience!
They offer a nice variety of seafood, excellently prepared, and served quite well. It's a little "spendie" but seems worth it.
As nice as it was before the pandemic. Great food and service. This is one of the real serious restaurants in Northern Virginia.
This is a wonderful restaurant. The owners are friendly and professional, the food is outstanding, and the atmosphere is beautiful and quiet.
Classic French brasserie style restaurant with a menu to match - it’s all about the sauce. Leans more to seafood than meat, but the filet mignon and veal scaloppine are every bit the rival. The extensive wine list is to die for. Well worth the excursion to Vienna to find this gem tucked into what looks to be a string of restaurants off the beaten path. An exquisite find that won’t disappoint.
We have enjoyed Cafe Renaissance for many years. They have a tradition of superb service and excellent cuisine, and every experience met these criteria.
Excellent food. Interior is dated. Service is good but a bit slow as the host also serves as the only waiter.
We had 5 staff tending the floor.
COVID protocols prevented us from visiting for the past year. Yet, for more than two decades, this has been one of our preferred dining spots. The setting is intimate, food is nicely presented, you never feel rushed, and host Sa’eed goes the extra mile to ensure you are getting your money’s worth. Our anniversary provided a great excuse to resume our patronage. We were not disappointed—nor will you be!
Excellent service and food. Quiet place and everyone was very friendly. Can’t wait to go back.
Such a fun atmosphere. Great staff, great food.
Our party of 5 all had different dishes and they were all outstanding. The food is among the best you will find in the DMV.
