After joining the "quiet crowd" who are avoiding the Reston Town Center as they work out their paid parking problem, we decided to give Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro a try. It is tucked away in the Westin Hotel which is located in a very...More

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.

Granted, there were 18 of us at 2 tables, but we did call ahead. After a wait, drink orders were taken and arrived. Another wait and dinner orders were taken. Not being especially hungry, I ordered two sides: a delicious and rich macaroni and cheese...More

We went for restaurant week and the options represented a very good value over the a la cartel choices. We had the swordfish and the scallops which were both cooked to perfection. The salads and soup options were both good as well. The dessert with...More

Food was over salted and although years ago we ate here and enjoyed it immensely, today was a far cry from then and it was very disappointing

Perfectly located at the Westin Reston, very inviting atmosphere, friendly attentive staff. Cozy outdoor patio with fireplace for the cold nights.

There is no buffet. When I ordered my omelette for $15 I expected something good. What I got was a plate with an omelette and an 18 inch black hair all over my plate. The waiter asked me if I wanted to just eat it...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.
