Bad service and my burger came out almost raw. Didn’t send back because it took so long the first time.
Not a bad dining place. Can be very loud if outdoor area not open. Very good selection of beers and drinks. Deserts are limited and even with reservations there's a wait time so definitively get one of those to avoid too long of a wait. Food was cooked well but the main focus there is drink area which isn't a bad thing. Good for happy hours or work functions too. Very helpful and attentive staff which was a welcomed change from other places in the area.
Service was slow and bad Food was OK but service was Awful I will not go back for dinner maybe happy hour if I am around there
It was a busy Saturday night yet my friend and I were not rushed at all and ended up staying and chatting for nearly four hours!
Excellent apps and friendly service!
The food was very good. I loved the smoked cheese crab soup, large chunks of crab with huge slices of avocado and the crusty bread was perfect to wipe the bowl clean with. The service was slow and tho it took a long time to receive our food everything still came out hot. The happy hour specials was good for appetizers but they were out of all the beer I was interested in trying so that was a bit of a let down (only ipas on tap so I just stuck with water). The hot hot smoked salmon sliders were good, the deviled eggs were a real crowd pleaser and the smoked caponata was very flavorful and hardy. I was not a fan of the fish taco lettuce cups, which were watery and had almost no fish to speak of. I was also not impressed with the hot fried crispy chicken sliders, which just had to many flavor combinations and none of them worked together.
It was fine. I expected the biscuits to be warm but they were not. I didn’t speak up because I was hungry and conducting a business meeting. It was just fine but did not match the price.
nice happy hour but very busy and noisy. Until they open up the outside bar seating there is not enough room for everyone who wants to be there. Because it is in the hotel lots of groups staying there for conferences are always coming down to the bar, very difficult to talk or move with such a crowd. bartenders do a pretty good job of keepin up though. Dinner was fair, shareables good , didnt try a larger entree. Service was only fair, it took a long time to get servers attention and usually had to be flagged down. We were there for a long time mainly because of the slow service. Dessert was not good, the poptart thing was dry and the ice cream cookie was too hard to eat. They used to have better desserts and more to choose from, dont know what happened to that.
This is a great place for brunch. The eggs Benedict was cooked perfectly. We order devil eggs to start and they were the best I had in a long time. The service was great. I had lost my voice so I asked for tea with honey. When she brought my honey out it was already warm so it poured and mixed in beautifully, I almost wanted to just drink the honey out of the cup. It was just a little extra touch that made things perfect.
I don't usually like hotel restaurants. But this is apparently a new concept for Hilton that i located exclusively in the Tysons hotel. Food was very good to great, depending on the dish. The kids menu offered good selections, fairly generous portions and represents a decent value. Atmosphere has a cool vibe. Bar manager Nick stopped by our table and was extremely hospitable, well informed, pleasant and cool. Server Kayla was quite good, attentive and gave good recommendations on dishes. Overall, a great experience . . . until we got the check. We paid and then realized that we were overcharged to add salmon to a salad. The menu price was $16 but the check reflected $18. Not really our server's fault because she can't be expected to check the price on every item - it should be correct in the system. I asked for the bar manager Hick, but he was not around, so some other manager stepped in (and I can't recall her name). I showed her the check and the menu, pointing out the discrepancy. She said, "we just changed the menu, so I guess we didn't update that on the computer." I guess that means they reduced the price of salmon on menu but didn't reduce the price on the computer system? How often does the price go down? Whatever. Point is, there was no apology, no offer to refund the $2 plus tax we were overcharged, no offer to make it up on a future visit - nothing but an unsatisfying explanation. Very disappointing and a real downer after having stumbled upon what we otherwise thought was a great dining experience.
UPDATE: Based on this review, both the General Manager and the Chef both followed up with me to apologize and make things right. That's customer service!!! I will definitely be back.
Our waitress was fantastic. Very helpful & made great suggestions.
We just recently dined at Barrel & Bushel for the first time. This was our third visit in about 6 weeks. That indicates how much we enjoy eating there. This was the first time we ordered from the share plate menu and we thoroughly enjoyed the sliders and side dishes. We really enjoyed the marinated/ grilled chicken quarters and veggies on previous dining occasions, but the menu just changed and the dish is no longer offered. You really should consider having the dish on your permanent menu (if you have one). It's a great menu item for those diners who have to watch their carb intake.
Great fish tacos! Easy to dine with kids (and a stroller).
It is a nice restaurant with a good local beer selection; however, it is very noisy. Not a place to go if you want to be able to carry a conversation. I went a few years ago and thought the food was better then. I had loved the grilled salad the first time; but this time it was hardly grilled and seemed thrown together. Love that they have beyond meat burgers, though. Also, if you have a reservation, you should be stuck at a long table with other people. Wasn't a good spot for our anniversary dinner. :(
Our server Eric was excellent, very attended and nice. The foods were outstanding, for us to go there two days straight during our state in McLean VA. We will definitely come back again, when we visit VA next time.
I am always pleased by this restaurant and team of lovely people!
We had reservations and seating was prompt. The server was friendly with the right amount of attention. The food wait time for the food was fine but the food's temperature was cold as if it had been sitting before being brought to the table.
I was a little nervous after seeing reviews on Yelp, however OpenTable's reviews were much more positive. We went for Easter Brunch, and couldn't have been happier with our restaurant choice. The server was great, and food was even better. Looks like a great happy hour spot once it warms up. There are tons of options for appetizers, too many to choose from unfortunately if you plan on having a whole meal! It's a good problem to have, and will keep me coming back to try other items from the menu.
I found this restaurant on the Open Table app. However, I'm glad I did because the chicken and waffles were the best I've had in a long time. Although there was a continental breakfadt/brunch, I opted to order from the menu, which did not have a lot of variety but the options were good. I'd definitely return for another meal.
It was a Friday night and very loud. Happy hour crowd noise kind of took over the space near the bar. Hard to hear each other. Food was good though and waiter was friendly.
Nice time but had to wait for long time to get the check.
It is always great
Great food and service, but too loud for us. Had to yell to talk. Would go again, but not during happy hour.
This place is good for group get together. They have communal tables which can easily accommodate larger parties. We went there on a Saturday afternoon. I booked a reservation but it seemed like we could have easily been seated without a reservation. The restaurant has a weekend happy hour that started at 2 pm, and they have a decent beer selection. The food was good. A couple people at the table ordered their hot chicken. It was good but not spicy hot like you would expect from Nashville hot chicken. Also the chicken skin was not crispy. But overall everyone was pleased with their meal for a casual Saturday afternoon spot.
Really yummy! Wish we got the sauce on the side for the tots, they were saturated and kinda soggy. Brussels sprouts and maple salmon were delish! Will definitely come back!
My husband & I ordered 4 appetizers & a salad for dinner. The sliders were pretty good but the crab/avocado things were meh. The salad was bland. The pretzel was awesome and the pork belly things were loved by my son & husband but I didn't care for them. They totally forgot to put in the order for my son's hamburger so he didn't get it until we were finished with everything. It was nice to get a free glass of wine because of it but overall, this dining experience didn't hold a candle to Founding Farmers the night before.
Great food, drinks and atmosphere!
Great food, even better at lunch when a little less crowded and service was top notch. The crab soup alone is worth the trip.
Sunday Brunch is always amazing at Barrell and Bushel. A++
We stopped in here for a casual dinner before going to the mall. Really liked the environment, the beer selection was great and we were pleased that the happy hour specials are daily until 7pm. Not a lot of vegetarian options but the pretzel appetizer was amazing. Service was a little slow, took us an hour, but we were in no rush so it was fine. Will be back!
Suffice it to say, management cares, well done.
Food was well prepared and tasted good. Extremely slow
Only complaint is the need for shading on the west side window. The glare was so strong that I could barely see my client and was trying not to squint. 12:30 lunch
Menu was limited. Food was ok at best. Service average. Won’t be back for dinner.
The service here was less than stellar. There was a lot of confusion about our reservation, even though 3 people asked. Our waitress seemed very over worked and was inattentive. After our food came out, she never came back and I had to go searching for water refills twice. The food was good, but not good enough to make up for the lack of service. I would have to have a good reason to ever go back here, I was unimpressed.
Excellent restaurant, easy valet parking, great food, great drinks- fried chicken the best.
Wish server was a bit quicker with our drinks-and refills. Food was INCREDIBLE!! Best “Hotel Restaurant” food I’ve had since the Jefferson Hotel in DC.
It was great! The crab roll was amazing.
Very interesting option to avoid eating at the food court
