We chose this for a quick meal before Wolf Trap. Outdoor seating is spacious, but feels too close to the highway and parking lot. Service was attentive. Food was disappointing. Salads were best, fish was poor and not as described on menu.

I was very upset with this experience. Nowhere on OpenTable does it say that they charge a $100 minimum per person for a reservation in the lounge. The guy at the front was really trying to charge me and my friends that but I said no I’ve never paid that before and he was like okay we can charge $150 for all 3 of you….
Just sucky service and treatment. Like $100 PER PERSON???

I really liked the place. We went on a Friday night and they had a live band. That made the whole night amazing. We had calamari, scallops, poke nachos, and chicken kabobs. The food was alright, but did not rock my world. Afterwards, the lounge and Restaurant connected, and the music went up! Overall, I think this was a great find! I am glad I found the place.

The drinks were good and so was the food but the service was really slow. Luckily we weren’t in a rush so it didn’t take away from the experience too much.

Everything was perfect. And everything on the menu looked so good. So, we ordered a few drinks, about 8 wonderful appetizers (for only two people!) and then moved on to dessert. We sat outside on the patio, enjoyed the background music, and had great weather. Loved all of it.

We were served THE tiniest mussels ever. The sea bass was served on a plain bed of basmati rice (no herbs, garnishes, etc) and the greenhouse salad was not good.

This restaurant is basically a night club, first and foremost. We went for dinner on a Saturday evening, and enjoyed sitting outside. Our waitress was very good, but the noise level was definitely night club level, and the food just okay. Unremarkable dishes at best (gazpacho was disappointing, the bread served just sliced white Italian, the tune poke just okay.). The hamburger was good, but, it was a hamburger. Great place to go if you're looking for a bite and club experience afterwards, but not necessarily a Saturday night out for dinner experience.

We went on a Friday and had our kids with us and sat out in the black leather sofas. There was a live band playing salsa like music. Once they started playing, was a bit loud and you can barely have a conversation across to the other side of the table. It was an excellent band and it’s too bad people weren’t salsa dancing. (Maybe thanks to COVID)

They had incense burning so that was also added to the international vibe that was going on. (Or that might have been the hookah bar in the Mediterranean lounge).

Dress code: People ranged in date night outfits and jeans with ladies in Christian Louboutin shoes to men who looked like they just came from a construction site. If you have kids with you, recommend sitting out in the patio far from the band.

The food ranged from Italian, Spanish, Indian and American, and the passion fruit drink I had was tasty!

It was such an eclectic experience, I felt like I was back in Qatar or Dubai with the international flare that was going on.
I would come back with friends who want to go salsa dancing, or are used to the international vibe.

I chose this place for Father’s Day, based on the menu. When we arrived they had a very small, brunch menu with none of the items included that we wanted - breakfast and pizza mostly. There was no mention of this on the website. There were only 4 other tables of diners yet the service was so slow and took awhile even for a waiter to come to our table. The food was okay but expensive for pizzas, an omelet and cheeseburger. It seems like this may be a place to rent out for special events but not regular dining. Such a disappointment!

We sat outside on the patio for a date night. Loved that we would reserve a specific table option outside for Covid reasons. Restaurant atmosphere outside was not great. The patio is cute, but restaurant is outside an office building with views of a gas station, car dealership, and strip mall. But that’s Tyson’s for you. Specialty drinks were tasty but weak and full of ice for the price. We had the calamari appetizer which was overcooked and a bit hard. And the tuna poke nachos which were good. For dinner we had the NY strip which was cooked perfectly and the mahi which was also very good. The service was decent. It started to drizzle and our server disappeared for a good 20 minutes noticeable to the point my husband joked “what happened to her.?” We has to move ourselves under cover to avoid the downpour. No one offered to assist. The clientele included a lot of older aged middle eastern type “regulars” and groups of middle eastern / Latin patrons dressed in black with heavy cologne. Not really our scene. We enjoyed our date but not sure if we will return. There are a lot of great restaurants in the Tysons area and this was okay but not particularly memorable.

This was a very nice restaurant. It’s equally great to visit for some adult beverages. It has a decidedly hip Latin crowd, although the food is American and Italian. The Friday house band, Latin jazz, salsa, and similar genres was excellent. The service was outstanding. The food was very good. Can’t wait to go back.

Greenhouse used to be a great experience and throughout all the years I’ve party and dined at Greenhouse, I never had a trashy experience as I/we did that constitute this review. The manager must be confused what her role is. You manage and ensure seamless customer service - as this is a whole experience provided by good service. Managers don’t communicate in a way that holds no value of standards that I assume Greenhouse is going for. She was confused how to properly explain herself without getting defensive, argumentative and using hand gestures as if she wanted to escalate and encourage more problems. Instead of acknowledging how silly they accommodated the situation to remedy and move on. Bottom line we had a reservation did get settled in until 30/40 minutes after the fact. Furthermore they told us where we were sitting we couldn’t sit at 9:45. Yet that table was open the entire time until we left at 11pm. The wait staff told us we had to spend $600 - $300 before 9 & $300 after 9pm. The fancy manager said that was incorrect and advised the waitress accordingly. Yet what is puzzling is the fact you applied more effort making a point moving us while we had our meals on the table then now bust two tables which is beyond rude and senseless. What trash of the management to think that is providing good customer service/experience. Actually not logical. I believe the staff needs some maturing and reevaluating. Please grasp the fact that you lost more than 4 customers - it’s everyone else we know and people who will read this review b/c they too thrive off other peoples experiences - meaning waste their time and money. Additionally we noticed 2 other 4 tops that got up and left and complained about their service too. If you want to be nasty like this then good luck to your business - people don’t tolerate disrespect. Our evening was a waste of money and turned sour - responsibility of the management.

Great Experience For Happy Hour / Dinner, We Ordered Many From The Happy Hour Options From Foods & Drinks. The Best Part Was The Tomahawk Steak From The Presentation To The Taste Absolutely Matched Well Worth The Price. We Absolutely Loved To Ambience & Asked The Garson About The Views On The Wall He Said He 100% Didn’t Know But Would Find Out But Never Came Back So We Will Definitely Be Back & Recommend To Others! Also Side Bar Only Down Point We We’re Seated Quickly With Options To Be Outdoor Or Indoor Experience After 12 Mins Of No Server I Walked Up To The Hostess Laura Who Ended Up Being Our Server & She Was Amazing! Very Attentive & Consistent! Plus All The Male Servers & Bus Boys We’re Sure Our Drinks Were Replenished & Full Which We Greatly Appreciated!

The food is always excellent! The service is average. I’m disappointed because my dinner party was looking forward to a after dinner reservation in the O lounge, but was told upon check-in there is a $400 minimum! This is absolutely outrageous! All we wanted was a few more drinks and hookah. Anyhow, we left and went across the street to Friends Kabob for $20 hookah. I don’t care how great you think O lounge is, $400 minimum is VIP lounge prices in an upscale NYC club, not Vienna, Va. Cater to local clientele or they won’t come back.

Made reservations for what we hoped to be a birthday dinner for a member of the family. We wanted to be able to social distance, so requested seating on the patio. When we arrived, a private party of exotic sports car owners were there. The patio had been closed to everyone, but had this large group taking over the patio. We were told we could sit in the lounge, next to a very loud DJ. At that point we left. We won't be returning.

First time here for me and my girlfriends and we liked it! We got there around 6 pm and the food, service, and atmosphere was wonderful! However as the evening went on, the noise level increased with the loud music which made it hard to hear people at your table and it became annoying. But overall, a good visit!

We arrived at green bistro and it looked beautiful. However once we walked inside to our table that’s when things went left! We were not greeted at all. No one told us where to sit so we were just standing there until I asked someone walking by. Then it took them 35 minutes to even come to the table to take our drink order. After we finally waved someone down to take our order it took another 30 minutes to get our drinks! Finally we were ready to order food but once again no waiter or server ever came back to our table so we had to wave down another server to take our order. I ordered two items and only
One came out so we had to ask someone where our food was at. Once we asked we found out that the order was not placed so we had to wait another 30 min for food. We ordered one shot and never got the shot so we asked the manager about our shot and a server comes over and tell us they ran out of liquor that we asked for. Why would everything take 30 minutes! The communication was poor and then to top it off when we asked for a check it was on our table in 2 minutes which was ironic! They added a gratuity however they did not deserve a 27.00 tip! I will never return and will not recommend this place to anyone!
