We had several meals on the patio with our two dogs. The atmosphere and service was great and the food was even better. The staff was very attentive and the menu was varied & tasty. We almost never eat at the hotel restaurant more than once during a stay but the experience was so good it just made sense.

We (four friends) recently discovered this restaurant in the Westin Hotel on the south side of Reston. It was a rare cool summer evening so we sat on the patio which a real highlight--somewhat secluded, away from any traffic and lined with large pots of tomatoes on the vine. They have an extensive wine list. We began with a few... More

The people are what make Vinifera special. They have an extensive wine list, and each server has their favorites that they can talk extensively about. Their recommendations are always spot on. Combine the great people with the wine and the casual atmosphere and Vinifera makes for a fun evening with friends. The third piece to evening is the food. Over... More

My parents have lived about 5 minutes from the Westin hotel and this restaurant since long before it opened but I didn't know it existed until a client in the area recommended it. I was there for a quick lunch but I will definitely go back with my family. Service was very good and everyone's meals were delicious. They told... More

Our dining group chose this based on reviews. We noted some consistent comments and they were spot on. Three of our party had the sea bass and raved. Three of us had the duck and all agreed that it was beautiful, but tasteless. Same thing applied to a couple of shared appetizers -lovely to look at, very little for the... More

They have a nice wine selection but the food was disappointing. I ate here years ago when they first opened and it was outstanding. This time, it was not nearly as good in fact, not good at all. The floor was sticky to boot!

Great service, excellent food, good atmosphere. Used as a destination restaurant despite being in an 'out of town' hotel location.
