Japanese | Arlington, Virginia - DC Suburbs

We recently discovered Gyu-Kaku and are very delighted. It can be tough to get a table so plan ahead. The quality of the food, especially meats, is very good, and it is a fun experience to cook by the table. Definitely one of the higher quality restaurants around in Arlington. More

American | Arlington, Virginia - DC Suburbs

The food was pretty good and i think their signature dish is the ham/cheese cinnamon roll. We got disappointed towards the end of our brunch when we were told that the Drag Queen performances are during dinner time and not brunch. We miss that highlight of entertainment, but overall great restaurant and atmosphere. More

Balkan style | Arlington, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Went here for our anniversary to celebrate our first date, which was also here at Baba. We loved the vibe on our first date and obviously it was a good first date since we are together this much later. This time for our anniversary, we looked forward to the same atmosphere in terms of food, drinks, music, etc. Unfortunately we left after a couple drinks (which were very creative and good) and went upstairs to Ambar to eat because the acoustic guitarist playing at Baba was terrible and loud. Not sure if this is a nightly thing now, or just a couple days a week, or just on this one occasion. We will probably try again another time, but we won’t bother sitting down if there’s live music after this experience. More

Both Indian and Himalayan dishes are outstanding. Servers are attentive to requests for "Indian spicy" if you love authentic Indian food, and are happy to adjust for less adventurous palates. The Himalayan bison Momos and goat curry are both fantastic. Rogan Josh and Vindaloo dishes are superb. The staff is friendly and helpful with questions--in short this is a terrific casual-to-date night dining experience. More

I hadn’t been to uncle Julio’s in a looong time. Mainly because I remember it being so loud. I purposely made my reservation early due to the noise level once it starts to get crowded. Food was pretty good. The fajitas are 25$ yet they only serve you 3 pieces of chicken and 3 pieces of steak. A little pricey when feeding growing boys who want their portions a little larger. More

It was obvious he had too many tables, and he did not express concern to us that he was not being of good service. Had to wait a long time after we were finished for our bill and to settle. Food was outstanding, tho. Would still go again. More
