Vinifera was surprisingly uncrowded on a Saturday night in Reston. Apparently, they cater more to a business crowd during the week. We ate on the patio. Took advantage of their 1/2 price special on a bottle of very good wine. The food was delicious and...More

Vinifera is a hidden gem. Nestled in the Westin hotel you can enjoy tapas or seasonally prepared foods with fresh herbs, vegetables and fruits that are grown onsite in the large pots that surround the outdoor patio. I love this place and as a local,...More

When you are traveling on business, you generally want quality dishes, reasonable selection, and good service. The Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro delivers. Try the Salmon and if you like brussel sprouts (which is not all that popular), they do a very nice job. When...More

Description
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.
