I pop in here often to pick up a salad. They are fast at getting me in and out of the place and the food is fresh. Sometimes speed is the most important variable at lunch and Cosi is good at that!

The Arlington Cosi was located directly across the street from our hotel, Le Meridien on N. 19th St. We were participating in the Marine Corps Marathon and were glad to have a convenient place to get food on the go. I called my order in twice and only had a 10-15 minute wait each time. We ordered the Tuscan Pesto,... More

I only ordered coffee, but it was cool and had grounds in the bottom. I didn’t walk the extra distance to go to Starbucks and I wished I had. They advertise fresh brew coffee. That is not what I got. If they can’t do coffee at over $2 for a large cup, I wouldn’t go back to even try the... More

Plenty of veggie options, choice of chips or carrot sticks comes with. Fresh and tasty. Service was prompt and pleasant. We ate outside and it was a good experience.

All Cosi's have the same high quality service and food wherever I go, The sandwiches are delicious and healthy. Always a good fast food choice if in the DC area.

Three of us went in for lunch and had sandwiches. Nothing special but the place is clean and good for the budget minded.

Located underground by the Crystal City (Metro) Station, the Cosi has an awesome help-yourself Salad Bar, a decent wine selection at room and refrigerated temperatures, sandwiches, yogurts, ice cream, and soft drinks. Note: the yogurt prices at the drug store next door were much better. 4 stars.

Ordered catering from this location and the staff was spectacular. Highly recommend for a business event. They even followed up after our event to confirm that everything was to our liking.

We were staying in Crystal City on a family vacation to Washington. There are many places to eat in Crystal City. We chose Cosi for breakfast one morning. They have some nice breakfast sandwiches and their Squagels (their own square bagels) are delicious. The only negative was that one item in our order was incorrectly prepared. I know they would...
