Wonderful owner. Wonderful food. Great daily specials, especially at lunch. I really enjoy their salads that come with the sandwiches.

Jasmine Cafe is tucked in the center of Lake Anne Plaza, away from traffic and noise. Although it is somewhat small inside, it doesn't feel cramped, but rather cozy. The menu is innovative and fresh, and they have a reasonably good wine selection. We went for a mid-week dinner, and it wasn't too busy. That was fortunate, as there was only one server. However, she did an excellent job of keeping up with all the tables and making sure her diners were happy. She was very pleasant and didn't hesitate to give menu recommendations when asked. We had the salmon special which was grilled and served over chunky mashed potatoes and sauteed leeks -- delicious! The arugula and pear salad is always a favorite of ours, and it didn't disappoint. Note on the salad: it's a nice-sized salad and can be shared by 2. Topped off by a nice wine, we had a very pleasant dining experience.

This was our fourth time to Jasmine Cafe. We went for a quick dinner on a Friday night in June. We ate outside and it was fairly busy. The dinner took 2 1/2 hours and we didn't want to spend that much time there. At least the food was good but the service was appalling. It was very frustrating to see other tables sit down and eat and leave and we were still waiting for our entree. No plans to return. It's a shame because the food is wonderful.

It's easy to forget about the restaurants tucked into Reston around Lake Anne and that is a mistake. Jasmine Cafe always has an interesting menu, with reasonable prices. It has inside and outside seating - so much nicer sitting outside with fountains and a lake and ONLY pedestrian traffic than all those other urban restaurants with seating right along auto traffic. Parking is plentiful too.

Although most employees in and visitors to Reston, VA, head for the vast array of restaurants in Town Center, longtime residents know that the food, prices and parking are better at Lake Anne. A good example is the Jasmine Cafe, where the food is terrific, and menu changes frequently, the service is excellent even for groups, and the ambiance is lovely, especially when the weather is warm enough to eat outside. It's tempting to keep this a local secret, but that would not be fair to Chef Eduardo. So go ahead and join us at Lake Anne, folks, you won't regret it!
