This neighborhood gem offers inventive American and European cuisine with a variety of fish, meat and pasta options, along with appetizers, salads, and exclusively house-made desserts. Portions are always sensibly sized and attractively presented. Service is very attentive, but never intrusive. Dining is at a leisurely pace, never rushed. A children's menu helps make this a very family friendly restaurant.
We come back here once or twice a year when friends are in from out of town. It is consistently good. We always enjoy a meal here.
Fabulous as always. This has become our favorite Bistro. Awkward location, but what the hey.
Always terrific.....everything on the menu is great!
The menu is reliably well prepared, a good mix of seafood, meats, and pastas. Wine is a highlight--we had a lovely prosecco to start with. The owner is nearly always around for a chat.
We loved the Idylwood Grill. My husband had the filet — the steak was cooked just right and he loved the peppercorn sauce. I had the scallops with risotto. Delicious. We tried the key lime pie and the cheesecake and thought they were both excellent, but the cheesecake was truly outstanding. Good selection of wines.
Great restaurant!! Always awesome and prices very reasonable! And no corkage fee!! Wow!!
Food was excellent. Obviously a neighborhood favorite. Bit tough to park.
As always, the owner Hedi is warm and greeted us with a big smile. Din took great care of us and we really enjoyed our evening together.
Enjoy this hidden gem every time I travel to the area
We've been here several times and really have enjoyed it. Orders included NY Strip, beef bourgignon and Branzino. The steak in a mushroom and wine sauce that was very tasty but the meat itself was not up to steakhouse standards in terms of flavor. The branzino and bourginon were excellent.
Idylwood Grill is always one of our favorites. We recommend it for the atmosphere, the food, the quiet noise level, and the quality/price ratio.
The beef bourguignon was delicious, so was the risotto with scallops. We have eaten almost everything in the menu, it is always very good.
Always outstanding! We have never had a bad meal there!
We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at this neighborhood gem. Was just the right place!!! Service and food terrific. Table very well located. We’ll be back again.
Food is very good. Service a little uneven. My salad was forgotten but I was given free desert to compensate. Wine list not large but good range of choices.
Great restaurant; creative menu--especially the specialsl; great service, great food!
Wonderful, relaxing evening.
Off the beaten path, but not far. Food was fresh and well prepared. Reasonable prices and pleasant wait staff. A very enjoyable business lunch.
I go because the food is good, not any of the reasons on your list. It's a restaurant, after all. We go for the food. You need to put that on your list, which leaves off the main reason people go out to eat.
The Idylwood Grill is a hidden gem. The food is excellent and the ambience relaxing. On weekends, the jazz pianist adds to the warm vibe.
Great value. Good food. Pleasant atmosphere.
Always a good selection of food that is cooked just as I would (if I could cook fish).
The food was excellent. They do have a kid's menu, but it's still a nice restaurant, so not really a good spot for younger/rowdier kids.
As usual, excellent food and presentations and service. Very generous wine and cocktail pours. Priced fairly. Classic.
The best calamari you have ever tasted. We have gone here for years and the meals are always fantastic! Love how they give you wine pairings for whatever you choose. Boston creme pie is also to die for!! Love it!
I went there to celebrate my husbands birthday. My second time, his first. We loved it. So quiet on a Sunday at 12:30. Delicious food, wine, and music. Can’t wait to go back!
Quiet comfortable setting!
Never disappointed-food exceptional-menu great-staff professional-
Great choice in Falls Church for excellent food -- good for foodies and special occasions. In a strip mall but the interior of the restaurant is nice. There was a pianist on Saturday night. Bit of a mix up with my wine choice, otherwise service was fine.
Birthday dinner. Great food, service good but food courses came too quickly.
Found it on Opentable, drove by, said “no way” then decided to at least walk in. So glad we did. Great service great food. Definitely a hidden gem. Just don’t look at the outside or surrounding shops. Sent my parents there 3 days later and they also had a great experience.
Please update the website menu. We were disappointed you did not have veal although the other entrees chosen were great.
My girlfriend and I meet up for dinner every couple of months. I selected this place and wasn’t disappointed. The ambiance was casual, the food was delicious and the wine selections were decent. I will definitely return.
Excellent food and wine. Our go to restaurant in Falls Church.
Always consistant...and good! Really like that they will subsititue items whenever
you request it!!
Awesome restaurant; superb service!!
This is one of my favorite northern Virginia restaurants Everything was great and staff helpful and friendly. I will be back soon
Loved our dinners and will planned to visit, at least once a year!
Loved the staff, music and delicious meal!
The food was delicious. Our waiter, Hedi, was wonderful, informative, helpful, delightful. We shall return!
The food was outstanding. The wine was delicious. The service was exceptional. I would be lying if I said it was what I expected...the restaurant itself has a dated look and feel, but don't let that deter you. One of the best meals I've had in quite some time...
Get together with friends. Solid food. Cloth tablecloths would be much nicer than plastic
Service exceptional, keyboard player that started at 18:30 was wonderful. Ordered the duck - was a very small portion. Wife had crab cake - a large one. Appetizer of shrimp provided 4 for $14. Everything tasted good, just small portions. Wife wants to go back and sample other dishes on the menu
