Amazing food, attentive staff, great service! Will be extremely successful when they open to the public. Had the wings, blue burger, the chocolate mousse, a Kentucky mule and green tea!

We dined at the Capital Burger-Reston this past weekend. Amazing food and service. We started with the two appetizers, the lobster and crab cakes, and the red chili-glazed chicken wings. For mains, three of us had the Capital Burger, and my wife had the Seared Salmon Salad. Everything was cook perfectly and to order.
Our server was friendly and attentive.

We will return soon.

I thought the greeters were very pleasant and my servers were awesome. The hamburger was perfect. My drink was a little light on the alcohol side. The dessert was the perfect size and I love the little jars.
I would only ask that the greeters say goodnight to those who are leaving. Otherwise the experience was great.

The service was very good. The chocolate mousse desert, calamari and lobster and crab cake were outstanding!

Some of the dishes had a little too much salt for my taste but the capital burger was perfect.

The noise level made it hard to have a conversation at times due to the music.

There is no doubt that the Burger is king here and well presented. It was though very noisy at Saturday lunchtime and it does not have the "club" feel that one normally associates with the Capital Grill; tad down market. Would go again.

Our server, Patricia, was amazing and very personable. Donnell Curtis, Culinary Manager, was also amazing and came to our table and many tables to make sure everyone was taken care of. The food was absolutely delicious!! We will definitely be back!!!

Delightfully friendly service with a surprisingly delicious chicken and waffles. The hint of heat did not overpower the crispy moist chicken. I was impressed by the attention to detail by the staff by getting to know your name and ensuring your order is just right.

The staff still is on the learning curve but is making very good progress. The burgers are fantastic, maybe the best I've had. This new restaurant shows a lot of promise.

I had the breakfast burger with a side of bacon on top, it was very good. This was a blended meat burger (not just ground beef, I’d guess sirloin and maybe something else). It was very solid and not very greasy. Topped with an egg, cheese and the bacon. Nice setting and good service. Overall a good place for an upscale burger or sandwich. I’ll go back again.

Welcome! It was the soft opening for Capital Burger in Reston.Town Center. Very delicious menu. Tricia our server brought house pickles to the table that are yummy. She did a great job describing the menu items and helping us with our choices.

We shared the fries with 3 dipping sauces to start. There was aioli, chipotle, and another. Each different and each delicious. Then i had the blue cheese, truffle, caramelized onion burger cooked perfectly at med rare. The flavor combination was wonderful.

My friend had the chicken sandwich that comes with pickles and hot honey sauce. Said it was very good.

For dessert i had hoped to try their touted shakes but we were offered other items instead. I had coconut cream pie and my friend had the chocolate mousse. Each came in a baby mason jar — cute but kind of hard to eat the dessert out of it.

Overall delicious food, great service and a welcome addition to RTC. I will be back.

Did not care for the french fries. Burger was very good, although I ordered it medium and had to send it back as it came out rare/medium rare. Server had a bit of an attitude and never came over to see how we liked our meal. I know it was the first day so you're working out the kinks. We will give it another try as the location is great, but as you know there are other very good restaurants in the area and you have to be spot on.

Best of luck.

We were invited for a pre-opening lunch. The food was very good but it is very pricey for what it is. I would not pay $18 for a burger!

The food was not very good. The service wasn’t great. The managers were walking around but didn’t introduce themselves. One who stopped in chat with us seemed peeved by our feedback. Our server had not been properly trained. Neither she nor one of the other managers knew what was on the menu. The only highlight was the bartender and bar service. Jonathan was efficient and attentive.
