A wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary! We often celebrate our important milestones here.
Wonderful meal! French onion soup, Caesar salad, filet mignon, branzino (seafood special), and a dessert sampler. We ate every bite!
What happened to Cafe Renaissance? It was a fine French restaurant and now it's an assembly line of ordinary food made with common ingredients. Garlic oil? Really? Not worth the time or money. Go to Ristorante Banaroti. Much better.
Birthday. Love Saeed and Wesley. They both make it a special place.
It was our first time there and wont be the last. We had the 5 course tasting menu. The staff was super friendly and the food was amazing.
It was a wonderful Valentines dinner. Not cheap but very good
Wonderful food and fantastic service! Will definitely be back!
Wow, this place was awesome. Service was exceptional - very down to earth wait staff, cook, and owner. Kept us very entertained. Food and drinks were great - great value for the money.
Excellent as always!
Not what I expected. Ambiance was good, friendly neighbors. French restaurant but "local" feel. Food taste was different and not to our liking. Overcharge for basic fish dinner and a Scallop dinner that was barely acceptable level. Onion soup had too strong OREGANO flavor (why is oregano in onion soup?) This is during COVID, they didn't have full menu, maybe their main chef quit, and the assistant was working that day.
Nice people, and I really didn't want to give a horrible review, but just not our cup of tea.... oh we passed on the dessert, but their coffee was good! Maybe they'll get better after COVID is over? Its hard to stay in business so, I'm giving the benefit of doubt and that it must be the pandemic...
Thanks for your feedback, please provide the name that you used to reserve the table, so we can go over the check and get needed information that can help us improve. Name Ben C does not show in our customer data for the day of your visit.
Very charming restaurant (rare quality these days!) perfect for a date night. Lovely attention from husband/wife owners and great staff, excellent food (salad with good house dressing, baked oysters, escargots, rack of lamb, duck confit, and dessert sampler). The wine list should be satisfactory to most, and we enjoyed a smooth port with dessert. The restaurant appears to have many regular customers, we plan to be among them.
Great food snd the service was awesome
I would recommend this restaurant
The closest thing to a complaint I have is the extremely attentive service. The food is excellent, the service top-notch, and the atmosphere nice and quiet - perfect for conversation. The tables are well-spaced so you’re not on top of fellow diners, the pace is never rushed, the wine pours are generous and the menu is terrific. Cafe Renaissance is going to be a regular choice for us!
We had a lovely dinner. I had fresh fettuccine with shrimp, scallops, calamari, and a crab cake. So good!
Saeed and the team made for a superb dining experience! Wonderful food, perfectly mixed cocktails and good service, Cafe Renaissance is truly a neighborhood gem!
Café Renaissance can only be described as FABULOUS! From an amazing Duck Confit appetizer, classic onion soup with three cheeses, crisp and well dressed green salad and her entrée, Rack of Lamb, cooked to perfection and my entrée Cod with seasoned vegetables the entire evening was TOP Shelf! Wine list will satisfy the most discriminating taste. Coffee and desserts from Heaven! I must return!! Worth the drive from DC.
Date with my wife.
As always, another spectacular meal at Cafe Renaissance. The food was exceptional, the wine pairing was perfect and the ambiance was excellent. This is truly one of our "go-to" date night restaurants!
We loved our experience! Last minute decision since we were close by. Our first time. Weselin was an excellent host. Beautiful place! Beautiful service. I can’t wait to go back!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. It’s classy, the food is awesome, and the owners are very nice. Highly recommended.
Truly superb, personal service. We were kept entertained by the owner hours after close on a Monday. Food arrived hot and perfectly timed, dishes were split plated for sharing. Escargot, duck confit were better than at Le Diplomat.
If you enjoy French food and service, I really cannot recommend this restaurant enough. There is decades of traditional excellence and pride on display here.
Covid masks worn and taken seriously.
Service and food was incredible. We came back the very next day to bring my mother to the restaurant.
We had a 3 hour dinner with 2 friends. Only a dinner at our house could have been longer, but without the excellent service, ambiance, and excellent food.
The food is well prepared. The service is attentive. I often dine alone and the staff always make me feel like a honored guest.
The prices are reasonable for such wonderful food not available in many restaurants. The
ambiance and service were both great. Although we live a bit far away we will go back frequently.
Exceptional service. Beautiful restaurant. Good value.
Tried the tasting menu and loved it!! Great food and service.
Food was delicious and service was friendly. A great find!
Café Renaissance hosted a small wedding dinner for us. Service was outstanding, food was exceptional. The whole experience was fabulous.
We tried this for anniversary after seeing great reviews. We were not disappointed. Fabulous dinner! Service was a little slow - probably due to COVID precautions. We didn’t mind though. Food was excellent! Will definitely make this a regular go-to place!!
Wonderful place for a special occasion meal
Incredible service. Highly recommended
Cafe Renaissance is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. The food is always well done and interesting, but we probably go more for the owners and staff, who make any visit feel like we're catching up with old friends.
As usual, the food and service were impeccable. They've created a very nice outdoor dining environment and their attention to Covid safety made this very anxious person feel very safe.
First time, tried the tasting menu with pairing.
Food was good, wine pairings very good and the service was fantastic.
This was our first time at this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised at the personal service and delicious Food! Was nice to sit outside and enjoy the evening with a glass of wine and excellent cuisine! Highly recommend
Great time! Very nice staff.
Spent a date night here and it was an amazing experience! Highly recommend for anyone. The owner greeted us very well with warm welcome. The interior is elegant. We had rack of lamb and filet mignon. Both great! Filet mignon is juicy and tender. We were treated with a complementary dessert from madam. The dessert looks so cute, not too sweet. Definitely will come back!
This is a great neighbor place. The service staff is super friendly. The food is excellent. Wonderful.
