Cafe Deluxe - Tysons Corner Ratings and Reviews
Always great except for one aspect. With even just a few tables occupied it is extremely noisy. When even half full it is impossible to carry on a conversation in a normal voice. Need to work on the acoustics and this is the reputation among my friends and business associates.
New additions to menu finally! And quite tasty too. We eat here at least twice a month. Solid food, nothing fancy but tasty. And the chef has finally got the right temperatures
On steak and burgers.
Suggestions - change the bread. It's like cardboard.
Work on getting servers to the table within a minute (like coastal flats and sweetwater).
Normally I have liked coming here but Sunday was not a good experience at all in that the waiter brought the wrong drink ( I ordered tea and hot coffee) so ok not earth shattering. But the eggs benedict was embarrassing . Thank goodness the eggs were cooked correctly but the "toast" was awful as was the "ham". The hollendaise was on the side per my request but it was not tasty at all. Very disappointing.
Went for Father's Day brunch. The brunch & lunch menus are very good. Eggs Benedict was great as was the mac & cheese. Steak and eggs were solid, although the steak itself was good but not awesome. The cucumber martini, on the other hand, was truly delicious.
We had a nice evening, service was good, people nice. My only complaint was the portion of white wine served in our drink before dinner. It was definitely on the small side. At almost 10 dollars a glass I thought they could have put more than 1.5-2 ounces in.
The waiter seemed to judge our food selections - commenting on whether it was a healthy choice or not. Asked if we'd like a dessert to share and we commented no but that sine of us might like to place our own orders. There's a lot of other nearby restaurants where our group feels more welcome and at ease ordering whatever we prefer.
The food wasn't bad, but service was slow even though they weren't full at all. We went for an early lunch on Saturday. We got seated at a nice booth, but it was far from the kitchen so the server rarely saw us. It was hard to flag him down whenever we needed anything, including the bill. I would have given a better score if the service was better. The server needed to come around more especially since he wasn't busy. Also, the poached eggs in the crab benedict was hard boiled! The yolk is supposed to be runny so that when you poke it with your fork, the yolk runs all over the food. We had to send it back and asked for a runny (not hard boiled) yolk. Prices seemed to be high for what you got. The steak frites was $22 but the steak was only so-so. The béarnaise sauce was really runny too. We've had steak frites all over town and for $22 you would expect something better. This was our first time, and we probably won't go back.
This restaurant is ridiculously noisy during peak hours. Maintaining a conversation for a business lunch was next to impossible. The company should install sound deadening to reduce the DB level in the place. Way too loud, especially after asking for a quiet table. Doesn't really exist during peak hours. I will not go head again for a business lunch or dinner unless it's a nice enough day to sit outside.
Our server was incredibly courteous and friendly - and very receptive to an off the menu request as well as allowed us to sit at our table after our wonderful meal without making us feel like we needed to hurry up and go. Greatly appreciated this given we were two friends catching up! thank you!
I have been to this Cafe Deluxe numerous times - it's a nice alternative to eating at Tyson's Corner mall. In the past I've been pleased with the food but this experience was sub-par. My two dining partners ordered the same thing: the steak frites. They ordered them medium rare. Both steaks were delivered WELL DONE - they could barely cut into the meat it was so tough. The manager did comp us one of the meals. My food: Shaved Prime Rib Sandwich- was the greasiest thing I've ever been served in my life. I don't know what has happened to this restaurant but they need to review their menu and kitchen staff
Café Deluxe was able to accommodate our reservation for eight, even on a busy Mother's Day. The service was well-paced and attentive, although our initial order felt a bit rushed. We all enjoyed our meals: several of the burgers, entrée salads with salmon, and the lamb shank. Our milkshake was also gently flavorful with a perfect consistency and straw viscosity :)
My only complaint would be about the noise level. While far from ear-shattering, the music was turned up about halfway through our meal, pleasing no-one and only forcing everyone to talk more loudly. I would also remind diners visiting from miles away that weeknight rush-hour traffic could impact your plans to meet up here.
Food was just average. Maybe 6PM was too early for dinner but the place was pretty dead. I guess if it were closer to the mall it may have been busier. The fries were good as usual, but the ribeye was disappointingly thin (1/4"). Desserts were decent, as were the cocktails. Service was good, but it was dead.
We have had several disappointing meals here. We wanted to give it another chance... Very disappointing! The salmon was too salty. The crab dip was awful - we sent it back and they did take it off of our bill. The service was extremely slow. We waited a very long time for our food. Will not go back.
