    Great food service was nice. Free parking inside garage is a plus . Just prepare yourself for the attached 20% gratuity added to the bill, and what I found out is the gratuity doesn’t go directly to the waiter that services your table. Other than the gratuity, the experience was nice, enjoyed the food I would recommend Chasin Tails to a friend.

    It was my first time dining at the new location. Totally instagram worthy visuals. We ordered the Whole Dang Thang that was $26 and we LOVED it!!! I had the fried rice and added 3 scallops as a side for $19 yes 3 scallops were $19 the rice was delicious. My guest had the garlic noodles with blackened salmon. We left with doggie bags because it was tons of food. Enjoyed the experience. Will go back for the seafood boil. No pics because we were busy eating but will try next time.

    Like most restaurants these days, the pricing is a 100% higher than pre-covid. Almost $120 for two entrees, one appetizer, one beer and one dessert. The rice dish was tasteless. Shrimp pot My Dang sauce was tasteless. No ice tea available. Martini and mixed drink pricing is outrageous so we didn’t order any. Parking, although validated, is a couple blocks away with no valet parking. Waitstaff was fairly attentive. If we return, we’ll order two entrees and water to keep the bill around $60. Although we can afford to pay $120 for a good meal, this restaurant isn’t worthy of that price range for mediocre food.

    **Taking into account it was a very busy Valentines Day night** It was decent. Service was decent considering it was a pretty packed night. Server was decent - you could tell he’s probably be phenomenal if it wasn’t so busy. Food was ok. My seafood pot was lukewarm at best but the garlic noodles were tasty. My husband had the surf and turf and said it was decent. I wouldn’t go out of my way to come back but if I happened to be in the area I’d try it again on a hopefully less busy night.

    I think we were the oldest customers, Baby Boomers, in the restaurant. Background music was annoying. Didn't like the chairs. Not a lot on the menu that was appealing.

    Great location, excellent food for appropriate prices. Not sure why, but the drinks and food delivery seem chaotic, food delivery to wrong tables. Our drinks came after our food. I would recommend them for excellent seafood. Hope they get better at the service; food was prepared and delivered quickly. Also, not excited about service charge of 20% in addition to gratuity.

    Amazing food and service, cocktails were delicious. This is a city find in Falls Church!! We all loved the Calamari, Mussels are huge and in a coconut curry, and the wings are all meat. Fish taco is one of the best I’ve had.

    The restaurant was very loud and (over) crowded. Rather than an enjoyable and relaxing experience, it was frenetic and bustling. Call it a case of unmet expectations…but it was a loud scene rather than a good restaurant experience.

    Perhaps we ordered the wrong thing (lobster over garlic noodles). Both were overcooked. The noodles were stuck together and very greasy. The lobster was very large (at least 1.5lbs) but I wouldn't order it over the garlic noodles again although it was tasty. The service was weird. The server was nice enough, but our appetizers came out with the main entree so the grilled oysters while good, were cold. We were not offered the bibs for the lobster and had to ask after we saw others had them. We didn't get a bowl for lobster shells at all but used a bowl someone had with their crawfish (which she said was very good). Don't think we will be going back anytime soon.

    There's a garage around the back, it can be a little confusing at times but Chasin Tails does offer complimentary 3 hour parking. I think the garage options were only 20 minutes, 3 hours or 6 hours. The restaurant interior was upscale and modern and we were sat immediately. We did make a reservation and the restaurant was moderately busy. They do add on a 20% service charge in replacement of the tipping system but it gets tacked on as a item so it is also taxed. Any additional tip would be towards the servers directly. The tables are covered in a paper and you're provided with a bib and gloves. Reusable silverware and plates are also provided. We ordered the Coconut Basil Mussels which came with a quarter or half of a baguette (4 slices). The mussels were delicious and we loved the coconut curry sauce, it was rich and flavorful and just wish there was more bread to be able to dip into it and soak it up. My friend and I opted for the Pocket Pair royal feast and added on crayfish as well. We went with the Oh dang sauce with a medium spice. There wasn't a lot of sauce that the seafood was sitting in but the menu does indicate that the seafood is wok tossed with the sauce. I personally wish I had gone with the garlic bitter sauce because the oh dang sauce was a little top salty for me but it had a nice kick in terms of spice. The andouille sausages were way too salty and tasted a bit off to me. Just kind of a tad disappointed in the flavor. Although the seafood pot was just a tad underwhelming, I will say the garlic noodles were absolutely delicious. I could definitely just eat that as an entire meal so I definitely recommend those. For dessert, we opted for the beignets and added on the vanilla ice cream. With the ice cream and the Strawberry coulis, they were delicious. Without, there just seemed to be something lacking. Service was good, overall no issues and she was friendly and mostly prompt. It was an experience but not sure if I'd go back.

    Very nice waiter. Good dip fried calamari. Dried out previously frozen mussels. Concrete floor makes for a noisy atmosphere, which younger generation seems to favour around D. C.

    Overall , it was pretty good although my shrimp were overcooked and it’s quite pricey for what you get . The sauces were very good though . It’s the type of ‘ I’ll be back ‘ when I really crave seafood , and not a regular kinda ‘ I’ll be back ‘

    They kinda tried hard to make it seem like fine dining - especially with the price increase. I still like the old fun way of casually enjoying yummy seafood. They used to be my favorite restaurant to go every weekend but not anymore.

    We are so excited to have new and really good restaurants in our neighborhood and this is one of them. Good food and great service and original concept where 2 restaurants share the same kitchen… this one is Cajun Vietnamese - their sister restaurant on the other side is Vietnamese called Nue - we’ll be back to try Nue soon.

    We found this on Open Table and gave it a try. We really enjoyed the vibe. We ordered two apps to share plus the special Australian shrimp. Brussels sprouts were very good (we have to have our veggies), as were shrimp and calamari. It would have been nice to know that only one large shrimp was on the order. I gave most of it to my husband and sort of nibbled at the head and tail. It’s probably more fun to come with four and share the gigantic and very messy platters. All in all, fun, and servers were excellent!
