There were 8 of us, two with allergies and they were very accommodating. Everyone enjoyed the food but the waiter, while very nice kept bringing us other folks drinks and meals. It all worked out which was good but it was unnecessarily confusing. Made a special request for seating and they were also accommodating for that as well. More

Absolutely delicious food and fantastic service! The bread is light and toasty. Combined with the olive oil and Parmesan made the perfect Start to lunch. The gazpacho was fresh and almost smoky. After that I was not surprised that the Chicken Granchioli was perfectly cooked, juicy with melty cheese. The sabaglione was light and fluffy; perfectly paired with tangy strawberries to make a light and satisfying end to lunch. Will definitely be back!!! More

Contemporary American | Fairfax, Virginia - DC Suburbs

We decided to try Kitchen 703 because of DC Restaurant Week and they did not disappoint. I did not realize Kitchen 703 is in the Marriott hotel steps from Fair Oaks Mall in sight of several run of the mill chain restaurants. Chef Naim Soued is excellent and took the time to come out and meet his guests and talk about his creations. Likewise the entire staff from the greeter to the busboys were all fantastic. Everyone was excited to be part of Restaurant Week and the Marriott team with literally every person helping each other to take orders, refill water, chat with customers, and so Five Stars for Service Above and Beyond is well deserved. What I really appreciated were the options the staff decided to provide for Restaurant Week. At a set price one could chose an appetizer, entree and dessert [standard for Restaurant Week], or any combination to include three of their more expensive entrees. Some restaurants [like Founding Farmers] limit choices based on price, but not Kitchen 703. Additionally, Chef Soued calls them Small Plates, but they were not small and all were delicious. We seriously enjoyed three separate meals from the "small plates" we sampled there and took home for later. Chef Soued's pasta twist on the traditional Cajun Jambalaya was delicious as was his Seared Cajun Cobia, which I paired with truffle buttered risotto that alone was filling and delicious. We also loved his Blackened Sixty South Salmon and the fantastic Red Pepper Chutney Crab Cake paired with grilled broccolini. Delicious! Thank you Kitchen 703 for an outstanding DC/Northern Virginia Restaurant Week experience. More

Discover Fairfax

Located across the Potomac River about an hour west of Washington, D.C., Fairfax lets you take a quiet break from the bustling national capital. However, don't assume that a small town means limited restaurants. Fairfax is home to everything from Indian food to fine Italian dining to American favorites like hamburgers. For a true taste of down-home Virginia cooking, be sure to try a sweet potato biscuit. Virginia is home to half a dozen varieties of heirloom sweet potato, which taste best when cooked into a flaky biscuit and served as a ham sandwich. Many local restaurants serve Southern-influenced comfort food, but you can enjoy Italian, Indian and other international cuisine as well. Head down Route 236 or 29 to find a popular restaurant while you're in town.
