Cafe Deluxe - Tysons Corner Ratings and Reviews
This was my second time to Cafe Deluxe and I just find it okay. Nothing remarkable about the decor/layout and the duo seating is like in a diner. Unfortunately the service was off during lunch on Sunday and it took over 15 mins to even get a water after my friend arrived. We both had the salmon & eggs with a bagel and the bagels tasted like they were out of the freezer dept.
It was the perfect place for a family gathering of 10. Everyone enjoyed the menu and liked what they ordered. Loan, our waitress, was excellent. She never rushed us and was present just the right amount. It felt like a gathering around a family dinner table. Very cozy and fun!
We go here often. They do very nice seared ahi tuna appetizer, fish tacos, and grilled salmon (not over cooked). The mac and cheese appetizer is also delicious. We've tried other things on the menu that have been quite good, but these are our favorites. And the service is excellent, particularly Loan. I would give the ambiance a very good rating except that it can be noisy. We try to go on a Monday or Tuesday, when it's generally not as busy as later in the week and, hence, not as noisy.
Café Deluxe is the local restaurant that we go to when we want a little nicer dining experience than our regular spots in the area. The service at the Tysons Café Delux is very good. This is a busy restaurant but 9 times out of 10 we have had very good service. We went for Valentines Day dinner and came away happy. I order from the healthy fare the sea bass with the Kale and orzo sides, which tasty fresh and flavorful.
My family regularly visits Cafe Deluxe and my young kids enjoy dinner there just as much as the adults. They like to color on the paper tablecloth and they have been making the transition from kid menu to grown-up menu.
One thing that was annoying was that our waiter recorded my soda as "diet coke" even though he brought me a regular coke, which is what I ordered. But another server helping out replaced my drink with diet. I asked him to switch it up, and he took forever... and I think he still brought another diet. I didn't realize the confusion until I got the check and it said "diet coke" on it.
I always order the chicken spring rolls with the awesome sweet and spicy sauce.
Mussels were very good!
Went on a weekday for lunch. Place was not even 1/4 full and our waiter was inattentive and extremely slow.
I ordered a salad and said I would try the accompanying dressing but asked if they had olive oil and red wine vinegar in case I didn't like the dressing. I do this often when I order a salad. Generally the wait person brings the oil and vinegar along when serving the salad. This guy did not.
I did not like the dressing and flagging down a staff member took way too long. When I finally did get to ask for oil and vinegar it took over five minutes to arrive! My lunch partner was nearly finished with her meal before I even began.
For the price the salads were disappointingly small and ordinary. My friend ordered the salmon salad which was very overpriced and was only the fish and mixed greens. It was so tasteless she asked for some slices avacado to add to the salad. They wanted to charge us for the avocado but finally said they would bring some. That too took more time than it should of.
Have been to this and other Cafe Deluxe locations in the area. I have always thought it was slightly over priced but the food was always pretty decent. I will not go back to a Café deluxe again until they lower their prices, provide tasty food that is not Ho-hum and have good customer service.
Totally disappointing experience.
Basic diner food in a slightly better than average diner environment. Good burgers, chicken sandwich, calamari, fish tacos. Waiter was a little too inattentive and very slow, even at 7:30pm when it was not very busy. Overall, nothing too special but decent, basic comfort food and does have wine, beer and cocktails.
I have been dining at the Tysons Cafe Delux location since its opening many years ago. I met a friend for lunch yesterday who had never been, and at my recommendation, we met at the Cafe. We both ordered salads...both were bland, chicken was overlooked and tasteless, service was average at best -- very disappointing (and embarrassing), and based on our experience, I'm not sure I'll be back. I will, sadly, hesitate to recommend again.
The food was fantastic and everything we ordered was great. The service was awful. We were greeted immediately when seated but it was the last time we would see our server in a timely manner. We had to get refills of our wine by going up to the bar. After we finished our entrees I had to ask how I could get a cup of coffee. Never once did our server come back to the table to refill our water glasses or my coffee cup. The table next to us sat for 2 hours over empty cups of coffee and my friend and I noticed they were never approached once during the time we were sitting there. We observed them asking for their check too. Unfortunately, very disappointing trip to Café Deluxe.
Salmon benedict was the happy choice of 3 of the 4 people at the table. The fourth had an omelet. We also shared an order of beignets. The salmon benedict was really excellent. I think I would make a special trip for it. The coffee was a good, strong, dark roast. The omelet person ordered tea and had to remind the waiter. The beignets were smaller than the ones you get in NOLA, and Cafe Deluxe serves them with cinnamon and sugar rather than just the powdered sugar usual in New Orleans. The hot fried dough puffs were not harmed by the changes.
I would say that if you have an order or request that isn't common enough to be in the servers' mental checklists, then it will be forgotten.
It was very noisy. We were seated at a table near the front door, at 12:30 on a cold Sunday.
My family has always loved this restaurant. We have been there many many times over the years. I have to say, this was the worst experience. Our server was terrible. She could barely speak English so it was hard to understand her. She repeatedly forgot items that we had ordered and was unbelievably inattentive and slow. The restaurant was not even busy and it was a Sat night. This was not our typical experience and made me wonder if it changed ownership.
It was an enjoyable New Year's Eve. Good service in a very pleasant setting. The food seemed to be made with quality ingredients, but everything was a little bland for my taste, including the apple brie flatbread, roast chicken, horseradish steak salad, creme brulee, and peach cobbler (special dessert). I'd go back, as it would be a nice place to enjoy a meal with friends or family. But not expecting a culinary delight.
I always meet friends here, as its a good meeting place and the food is consistently good. We had bloody marys, turkey blt and ahi tuna tacos. The tacos had very little tuna on them but the turkey and drinks were good. Our server was very friendly and great with recommendations. We would definitely recommend this place.
