The food was great, the service was very good and it was quiet enough to carry on a conversation in conversational tones. One of us was so impressed with what he had ordered that he asked for the recipe, and the manager was kind enough to provide it. All in all, a great experience.

Great bistro style food and ambiance. The steak frites was exactly as it should be, with the added bonus of bernaise sauce. My companion's meatloaf was also very tasty. Service was unpretentious and friendly. Would definitely recommend this neighborhood gem.

I really enjoy this restaurant -- a pub like feel that always pleases. This time the service was overly attentive and a bit disruptive to our table conversation for most of the meal --- and then missing near the end.

Nice place with good ambiance. Usually the servers there are top notch - we had a newbie who did not seem all that well trained or prepared. Had a situation where I ordered a half seltzer/ half cranberry juice - got 2 refills and was told before the second one that the refills were not free. I resented being charged $9 for a club soda/ cranberry juice drink refilled 2x. Overall, though, this is a place I enjoy and recommend. Consistently good food. It is rather noisy when it is crowded.

Meeting up with family from out of town so menu options are terrific for all tastes and diets. Noise level was so high it was hard to hear the server. A request for an additional condiment was not filled and could not get a server's attention until we had to get up and find him. Minor complaint for a very busy Sunday lunch seating.

We had a great dinner at Cafe Deluxe celebrating my Husband's 50th with a group of old friends. We were visiting from out of town and looking for a central location from Alexandria, Herndon and Leesburg. We lingered over drinks, apps, dinner and dessert. Wonderful evening.

I can honestly say I will not be returning to this restaurant anytime, while the food taste wise was just okay it arrived luke warm and the homefries had very little seasoning. In addition the server gave me the wrong order and I had to wait while everyone else was eating for my meal to be prepared. My daughter ordered a breakfast sandwich without egg and they left the bacon off her sandwich. The hollandaise sauce was to lemony once I finally received my meal and the managers idea to make up for the luke warm food and missing meat is to provide an additional side item, unbelievable. Needless to say this was a first and last for this spot.

I have enjoyed Cafe Delux for lunch several times in the past; however, this was my first time for breakfast, and I was very pleased. The food was excellent, the variety of menu items nicely covered multiple options, the server was delightful. The restaurant was quiet enough to enjoy talking with my friends, what's not to like? I will be back!

Their glasses were dirty and had food stuck to them. Both of them. Asked the manager about this and said that happens with the chemicals. The completely lack of caring was a glaring sign about what is wrong with the place. The mussels were mediocre. The steak was a decent cut of meat but no flavor. The bearnaisse sauce was amateurish at best. The fries and steak were cold. The chilli was better than all this but didn't even come with crackers or sour cream or cheese. Weird, huh? Yeah, I thought so but telling the manager would only result in my being told it is normal. Well, I'll go back to my normal where there is less attitude.

A great venue for quick, variety lunch time meals.
Wait staff is always friendly, attentive and responsive to customer's needs.
An added bonus if you are a frequent patron... The wait staff will likely remember
your face, personality and your previous meals. Enjoy.

Food for most of us looked very good. BUT I , being on a diet had to order a salad and I chose the steak...That was a Big mistake.... I asked for my steak to be cooked med. It was like shoe leather . Actually my dog couldn't have eaten it . I asked to please have chicken instead..my friends all nearly finished their lunch by the time it came out ..in fact i had to ask again for it. we asked for bread , the waitress took a good 15-20 min to bring it ..again nearly done with lunch ...Service was terrible! I understand we had a trainee...but the main waiter was supposed to be assisting her. and really we ended up getting no attention.

Food was average tasting. Restaurant is very pleasant inside (lots of light from floor-to-ceiling windows), though rather noisy. Also, it was impossible to catch the attention of our waitress, and when we couldn't flag her down, it was also hard to catch the attention of other wait staff.

Very inexperienced staff working on a Saturday night with very little supervision.
The table next to us also had a group of 8-year-olds running around and jumping up and down on the shared bench with us. Neither the parents nor the restaurant cared that they were so disruptive.

Amazing. Reservation at 12 on a Friday. No server for 15 minutes. Finally called the manager over and he took our order, but still did not assign a waiter. Our section including the booth next to us had a waiter but no one ever checked in with us. We were served throughout the meal by a mishmash of staff, from the manager, to the hostess to other bus help. Food was ok, manager comped an appetizer which was nice, but they really need to get their act together. Maybe just shortstaffed but not acceptable. We have been going to the cafe deluxe in Bethesda for years and had never had a service issue.

First of all, the food is good and my server was fine. My complaint on this visit was that ordered my food and got up to go to the bathroom (I was eating alone). I came back to find them busing my table and my newspaper had been thrown away. They were able to eventually retrieve it from somewhere in the back, probably out of the trash. Then I took a sip from my drink to find something hard and unknown come up my straw, it was neither Coke nor ice. The manager seemed unconcerned about this. He did buy my meal, but I expected a bit more concern from him as it was unsettling. Room was also so hot I was sweating. Not a good experience this time around.
Not my first visit here. Food is always ...
Not my first visit here. Food is always good. This particular evening was loud. We asked to be moved away from the bar, which took a while (busing the table took 15 minutes). Service was also slow on this evening. At the end of our entree instead of being asked if we wanted anything else, dessert, or coffee we were given the bill. So, we skipped that part of the meal, which we normally would have had.
I will give this place another chance, but, if the service still the same, it will come off my rotation of restaurants in the Tyson's area - many to choose from.

Slow start with a strong recovery....Got seated outside. Most diners were inside, so I think we got lost in the shuffle. Took about 10 minutes for a server to come out, but once he did, it was all good! Server was excellent - professional & friendly. Martinis, chicken pot pie & lamb shank were all very good. Peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream was a great way to end the meal. We will be back.

Another nice lunch at Café Deluxe. Excellent food. Service continues to be rather perfunctory and slow(e.g., capons weren't included on salmon plate and by the time they arrived pursuant to our request, the meal was basically already consumed). Continues to cry out for better training/management. Definitely recommend patio seating ~ very loud inside.

I was sent a gift card after a bad experience. We went for dinner, and the service was much improved, as was the food. We had the steak salad and steak frites. For dessert, we had the bread pudding and ice cream sundae. I noticed that there was a different manager at the host station, and it was an improved overall situation. I hope this was not a fluke, and we will be returning to see if it stays a decent experience.
