We all enjoyed Idylwood Grill, and the food was lovely. It was a tad difficult to find, and the parking lot got full pretty fast. But our server was delightful and accommodating, and the restaurant itself is lovely.
I’d wanted to eat here for a few years, and kept forgetting about it - probably because it pales in comparison to many other small venues nearby (McLean, Tysons, Vienna).
We finally visited Idylwood Grill, and it was okay. We both ordered filet mignon, which was perfection - but the fried potatoes (“frites”) were soggy.
The wine list wasn’t what we thought it would be but sufficient for the meal.
Service was provided by s semi-surly fellow who wanted to rush us through every step of the meal. I finally had to tell him not to clear the table ... also asked for more bread (for two of u) and was given one small roll.
I might go back, but it wouldn’t be my first choice. Too bad because we’re always on the lookout for a friendly retreat (as this place might have been).
I couldn’t recommend it without warning people about the impatient waiter. The biggest thing it has going for it from our perspective, is that it’s convenient, has passable fare, and is easy to book.
First of all, I love Idylwood Grill! Normally, the food is fantastic, service is excellent, wait staff and management are friendly. It's just a wonderful local place to get a great meal at a very fair price. Great wine selection. However, this time, the food that I ordered was not up to their usual standards. I had order branzini a couple of months ago, and it was OUTSTANDING. Couldn't wait to come back and order it again, which I did, but it wasn't anything like the dish that I had order before. Very disappointing. Not sure if it was a different chef, or it was just an off night for branzini. I'll keep coming back, cause I love the place.
Idylwood has all the makings to become my go-to place. The food is great, the venue is comfortable and unpretentious, and the owner is charming. I’m reluctant to recommend this place because I don’t want it to become so popular that I can’t just drop in and enjoy!
The food was excellent as always. Good wine list. We always enjoy dining at Idylwood Grill.
As always, the food and service at Idylwood Grill were excellent. Several of us ordered their special crab cakes, which were mouthwatering and packed with crab., making them light with no detectable filler. I also had their delicious avocado salad. This tasty salad is always a good starter. Throughout our evening the attentive staff kept our water, wine and coffees full and made sure we had everything we needed. My guests who were new to Idylwood were impressed and already making plans to return soon.
I definitely recommend Idylwood to all my friends! The food is always very good, I have never been disappointed.
Such a great experience! Great food, ambience and amazing service.
Idylwood is reliable for delicious cuisine, excellent service, a good wine selection and a friendly, casually elegant atmosphere. It’s one of the best kept secrets in the Northern Virginia, and I hope it stays that way. A table is almost always available. It’s a neighbor treasure. The owner and his staff are personable and always make one feel welcome. The banana cream pie, like other desserts, is made in house and is heavenly!
We had a variety of foods. We loved the gazpacho. The lamb shank was a winner as were the moules (Mussels) mariniere. We shared a chocolate cake and a cheesecake for dessert and they were fine but nothing tom write home about. All in all, we would go back. You could hear yourself speak without raising your voice. That was a plus. We prefer cloth napkins and tablecloths but alas, these were plastic.
I love this restaurant! Best date night place in Falls Church !
Monthly birthday lunch or dinner for a group of friends who are retired teachers from Arlington. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the German Chocolate cake was spectacular! Very attentive staff.
Our favorite place
This restaurant needs a inside facelift; first thing is to get rid of the plastic table cloths. Then get a new wait staff. Our server was barely decent--the only smile or humain-like reaction we received was when the check came and we paid. The food was good, but over priced for the location and ambiance.
One of the true hidden gems in Northern Virginia; food excellent and well priced; good wine list; wonderful upbeat ambiance; highly recommend
The food is always good, as is the wine. We have never had a bad meal, or a bad experience at the Idylwood Grill.
We really loved this restaurant. I had been there many years ago for lunch, and had intended to go back, but it just never happened. But now we will be regulars! We had a wonderful dinner - three different seafood dishes, all beautiful. The service was excellent. Prices were reasonable. We had a great time!
This gem! Always wonderful food, great non-intrusive service. Wonder selection of wine. A great place for families, quiet dinners with friends, business dinners. Can't say enough wonderful things about Idylwood Grille. Love the place and the people the own it.
Nice little place hidden behind big shopping center. Good food and wine. Something for everyone.
We go to this restaurant 2 or 3 times a year and normally I order the lamb chops which I always enjoy. This time I decided to branch out and unfortunately was disappointed. I ordered a crab cake and salmon cake duo. Unfortunately, the crabcake was two much filler and the salmon cake was dry and overcooked. One guest enjoyed the venal and another enjoyed the branzino.
All the dishes were outstanding Excellent taste etc etc but the rack of lamb was tough and could not slice the rack with a knife
This is my first bad experience with a dish after dining for many years
Good place to bring friends as you can talk. Love the shrimp ajo and lobster ravioli.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Nova. Food is always great . Service highly professional. Owner is on the floor greeting guests and being sure things are running well. Excellent wine selection. Prices very fair. If you try idylwood grill you will become a regular
All four us enjoyed our dinner. Three had fish, one chicken. All good.
Did not like stuffed animals that were on the bench outside the restaurant.
Hidden gem for us. Great meals, reasonably prices, great wine and drink list. Very knowledgeable staff - made great recommendations. Would definitely return.
My favorite restaurant! They are amazing accommodating. The food is fantastic. The only bad thing is having to choose when I have so many favorites!
Always delicious! We all got three different meals and all three were amazing. Would definitely recommend to others.
A lovely experience to celebrate my niece's birthday. Had never been at restaurant before and was delighted. Drinks, main courses, and desserts were time rated. Very diligent and courteous staff. We will be back.
Birthday dinner - fantastic
We have dined at the Idylwood Grill many times. Generally a great dining experience. Service at the last visit was average at best. Although the restaurant was not very busy, the server appeared to be disinterested, at best.
The Idylwood Grille the warm welcome by Hedi always genuine!!
Our meals were well prepared and tasty.
Good selection of wines. No beer on draft.
Waiter brought the wrong cocktail, but quickly replaced it, with an apology.
We were kept waiting at least ten minutes for our bill, after we finished our meals.
We have dined here several times this year. Even arriving at 9:15 pm, when closing was imminent, the staff was friendly and food was well prepared. Favorite: shrimp ajo appetizer; red blend wine.
Best fine dining in Northern Virginia
Great food and service. Half-priced bottle wine day was nice surprise. Good wine selection
Slow, inattentive service even though it wasn’t very crowded. Food was average. Nice that they are accommodating to kids
My family and I had the Father’s Day lunch here and everything was great, from the food to the service.
My boyfriend took me here for my birthday dinner. The food was amazing. He ordered the duck breast over mushroom risotto and I ordered the lamb shank over risotto. Both melt in your mouth delicious. Service was outstanding. There was even live music! It was good music too!!! We will definitely return.
Loved this place! Felt like such a family restaurant. The service was amazing, the noise level was great, and EVERYONE, even the ones dining in, were so so friendly. It's a bit pricey, and we didn't eat dinner. We came for wine and dessert. PLEASE get dessert, both the chocolate cake and german cake were AMAZING!
