Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro Restaurant Review: One of Reston’s best-kept secrets, Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro is located on the ground floor just off the lobby of The Westin Reston Heights. An upscale eatery with subdued, men’s-club décor and patio views, it offers a tailored menu that consists of classic dishes based on local, fresh and sustainable goods. For lunch or dinner, start with the hummus, deviled eggs or beet salad followed with octopus in a saffron aïoli. Lunch entrées tend towards lighter fare, from burgers to a Cobb salad loaded with bacon, blue cheese and chicken. Dinner mains include risotto, bouillabaisse and duck breast. Dessert choices are limited, but if it's available, go for the bread pudding. Ask the waiter to help you peruse the wine lists to pick the right pairings for your meal. Happily, you’ll find the service discreet and courteous, and best of all, punctual. At breakfast, expect to begin the day with sweet or savory options.
