Dinner recommendation near Reston town center

I help need in picking a restaurant near Reston town center for a work dinner. Selection criteria are: good food, small, and non-chain. Open as to type of food and cost. All help greatly appreciated.

  1. How many people?

    Ice House Cafe is a nice small place over at the edge of old town Herndon. The others that quickly come to mind in a similar vein are Cafe Montmartre at Lake Anne, El Manantial in Tall Oaks, Euro Bistro, Three Thai Sushi, and Paradise Indian (these last three are all very close - with EB and PI being nearly next door to each other.

    There's a new Japanese place, Nippon, that is also near those last three, and all four aren't far from old town Herndon.

      thanks for the quick response, it's for two people, will investigate your suggestions.

    2. In addition to Dennis's suggestions, you might try Passionfish, which is in Reston Town Center itself. The food is very good and the noise level isn't too bad.

        Second the recommendation for PassionFish. It's excellent and would be a good location for a work-related dinner -- not overly noisy.
