We went for Taco Tuesday and our server was fantastic!! Was sad they didn't have one of the cocktails we ordered, but thats ok. We got a great wine recommendation and ended up having 2 bottles. The fish tacs were delicious but the surprise winner of the night was the brussel sprout tacos. More

The Ashby Inn4. The Ashby Inn

Contemporary American | Paris, Virginia - DC Suburbs

The Ashby Inn is always a treat. We've been there many times, even as chefs change and menus adjust. The food is almost always locally sourced (the venison stew was REALLY locally sourced--the chef came to the table and we talked) and expertly done. The wine list is almost overwhelming. The pork loin with bone in and blue cheese was superb and the venison stew tasty and hearty. The crab cakes could have used a little more spiciness, but that is personal taste. Excellent service, beautiful ambience, and a welcoming staff all combined for a great (as usual!) evening. If you haven't been, go. If you have, well, come again. It is our annual (at least) tradition and should be yours, but bring your credit card and an open mind: it is not cheap. But it provides for a superb dining experience. More

French | Vienna, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Everything was outstanding, as always. Between the four of us, we covered the gamut of the menu (chateaubriand, veal, and seafood) on this visit, and everyone loved it. The bananas foster for dessert is always the highlight for my husband. Beyond the food, the service is always impeccable. The owner, Sayeed, truly has a gift for making customers feel welcome. I don't think any restaurateur has ever made us feel as special as he does. And, that's why, after over 20 years in Vienna, we still go to Cafe Renaissance for every special occasion. More
