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.

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.

Fun mini-tapas on sticks, great Virginia wine selection, and delicious Chilean seabass (when you don't feel too guilty ordering it.) Deep in a hotel complex so not fun to arrive to, but once you are seated you could easily be in downtown DC for quality of food and service.

Came in late from the Dulles airport and proceeded to Vinifera (which is inside the Westin) for a light dinner. I sat in the part of the restaurant that is very relaxing because it is very comfortable and more like a lounge than a restaurant (comfy chairs and plush seating). After a glass of wine I had a small salad which was attractively presented as a mound of greens held together with long cucumber strips. I had the dressing and Stilton cheese on the side. I also had a salmon slider - a delicious small bun with a salmon patty, sun dried tomato sauce and cucumber. The meal was just the right size for my needs. There were many other choices on the menu that looked inviting. I would like to return to sample other items.
