Rustico Reviews List

Rustico

Rustico is the quintessential neighborhood pub on the edge of Old Town Alexandria. The menu features seasonal, hearty American fare from a wood-fired oven and grill, including pizzas and rotisserie meats, along with other rustic cuisine using the freshest local ingredients available. There’s also no mistaking Rustico’s love for barley & hops! The bar’s focal point is a custom galvanized inverted T bar with 30 brilliant taps book-ended by two massive coolers holding more than 400 different types of ales, lagers, ciders and stouts.

"I've been to Rustico several times in the past and patronize this restaurant because of the food and drink selection. I decided to take my parents there for brunch before they left town due to my previous experiences. My experience this time was disappointing. The service was substandard. Our waiter didn't come to the table for over five minutes even though the restaurant was not terribly busy. It then took almost 25 minutes from the time the order was taken until the food was delivered to the table."

"I've always found that Rustico is a great place to take visiting friends. The food and service are consistently terrific and I always get complemented on my choice afterwards. Plus, having Buzz across the street doesn't hurt either!
Solo, hanging out at the bar and watching a game is also a relaxing, enjoyable experience."

"Went for brunch to celebrate a birthday and was not at all satisfied with the menu selection. The online menu had shrimp and grits which were not on the menu in the restaurant. Four of my friends ordered chicken and waffles and didn't like them."

"We have always loved Rustico as a great place for burgers, specifically the Rustico burger, and they have a notable and extensive beer menu, for which they are famous. We noticed that they added a couple of new burgers to the menu, and all three of us were intrigued by the "French Onion" burger, which we all ordered. All three of us were disappointed and agreed that it did not live up to the standard of the Rustico burger, which we will all go back to on our next visit. Service, however, was impeccable (thanks, Mike S!) and the carrot hummus appetizer is not to be missed. We still love Rustico, despite this minor disappointment in the French Onion burger. We will definitely return. Note, also, that Rustico now takes advance reservations...a change from previous practice when they accepted "call ahead" reservations only."

"I've generally been a fan of Rustico in Alexandria as a mid-range option. They have a very good beer selection, they have tasty pizza options and the preparation is conistently solid. However, my wife and I recently dined there for brunch and were a bit disappointed. The service was fine, but the food was slightly sub-par. It wasn't enough to send the food back, but enough for me to voice my opinion here.
My wife had the chicken and waffles and I had the steak and eggs. As usual we shared dishes. For both items the overall portion size was adequate, but the amount of protein (meat) was quite skimpy. The steak consisted of 5 strips, each about 1/8" thick x 3/4" wide x 2.5" long. The chicken was 4 pieces, each about the size of a chicken nugget. My previous trips to Rustico have mostly been for after work drinks and dinner and I have not been there for brunch before. Maybe the small portion sizes are specific to brunch? In addition to the portion issue, the waffles were a bit over-cooked and slightly chewy. The potatoes with the steak and eggs were a bit under-cooked. In addition to our entrees, we also ordered the risotto tots as an appetizer and the donuts for dessert. The tots were pretty tasty and the donuts were excellent.
Like I said, I've been a fan of Rustico. Hopefully this was a one time event and I will go there again. I won't go there for brunch."

"Haven't been to Rustico in a while as we're both gluten-free and we think of them as a pizza 'n beer place, but we gave them a shot last weekend. Their brussels sprouts were excellent and my wife's pork chop was very good. I liked my "Three Pigs" burger and the sweet potato side was unique and quite good. Their wine list has less than a dozen bottles on it (as opposed to their beer list which is one of the longest I've ever seen), but the Nero d'Avolo was nice. Service was very good. We'll be back."

"The service was not up to the standards I had received there before. The manager came and apologized for our appetizers and meals all coming at once, but the initial server we had was not super friendly (we ended up having another person wait on us. )"

"Ventilation could have been better. I have asthma and the smoke was so thick in the restaurant. Haven't had this issue at other rusticos in the area but the food and service were great."
