Went for an anniversary dinner...not really the best place but it is the quietest restaurant in Reston. We should have just ordered the small plates. We had the tartare, and the pigs wings. Both were outstanding. But the main meals were lacking. My husband had...More

Food is delicious bar staff truly know how to make a drink and the turnover is low so you feel like you are at home here.

This place definitely does not deserve 4 stars based on my recent experience there. First, it was hard to find as I didn't know that it was actually a part of the Westin hotel. The website says that it is next to it. Second, the...More

Quality food and good service. If you are staying at Sheraton next door - skip the restaurant there and come here for food.

Surrounded by the warm feeling of a chic and contemporary atmosphere that encourages conversation, Vinifera is an urban sanctuary in one of America's most renowned suburbs. The unique and sophisticated bistro is a place to have your senses invigorated by every aspect of your visit - from the mouth-watering food to the unforgettable service and welcoming environment. With a focus on seasonal, local and organic ingredients, Executive Chef Bo Palker serves globally-influenced New American cuisine for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. A variety of pintxos (one bites), small plates and entrees are available in the intimate bar & lounge area, illuminated dining room and outdoor patio, featuring custom hand-made Hawaiian fire pits. Sommelier Jason Meringolo flawlessly pairs our inspired dishes with an assortment of over 300 wines by the bottle and 30 selections by the glass poured from an Enomatic system behind the bar. Vinifera is more than just a restaurant – it’s an experience.
