Our progressive wine list weaves in and out of the new and old world with hidden gems sprinkled throughout. Our cellar is stocked with a diverse variety of selections, including crisp and refreshing lighter wines as well as those with the most intense and full bodied flavors.
An evolving menu of craft cocktails featuring classics as well as our own creative interpretations of the moment, using fresh juices, syrups, and infusions.
We have put together a well rounded selection of craft and local brews in bottles, cans and on draught to suit all tastes.
HOURS & RESERVATIONS
If you want to hang out with us on a whim, come on in! If we can’t get you a table in the dining room, which is often the case in prime time, we serve the full menu at the bar and Kitchen Counter. You might have to wait for some seats to open up, but the turn time is normally not all that long.
Our online reservation system is Seat Me, or call us at 703-539-8400. We use a Talk to Text response system which is actually more efficient than being put on hold. Please don’t hang up – listen to our entire 20 second message, then leave a voice message with your reservation request or question. We see all messages as texts in real time and will respond within 10 minutes. If you are calling from a cell, expect a quick text back and a continuing text dialog. If you are calling from a landline, expect a return call. We monitor messages between the hours of 10am – 9:00pm Monday through Friday and 11am – 900pm Saturday and Sunday. Thank you!
Dinner: reservations recommended, but walking in works too (see info above).
Mon- Thurs: 5pm – 10pm
Fri – Sat: 5pm – 11pm
Sun: 5pm – 9pm
Lunch: reservations recommended, but walking in is welcome and accommodated
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday: 11:30am – 2pm, remaining open throughout the afternoon for open seating with a snack menu.
A note on parking….
Parking in front of Clarity fills up fast, but we have another parking lot just steps away. Take a left from East St onto Church St and take another quick left (200 ft) at the Clarity sign into the lot. Park, walk across the bridge straight into the building lobby door and into Clarity.
THE CLARITY TEAM
“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” – Vince Lombardi
Main Dining Room
Our 70-seat main dining room faces the open exhibition kitchen and 12-seat bar. Framing the kitchen is our 8-seat ‘first-come-first-served’ kitchen counter, otherwise known as “The Pass,” where you are right in the middle of all the action.
When weather permits, our patio is open for full service.
“The Cellar,” our 12-seat glass-enclosed Private Dining Room, is literally in the kitchen, and fully AV/WiFi loaded. Order from our regular dinner menu or Jon and Jason will design a menu to fit your needs. Simple to extravagant–the sky’s the limit!
