Welcome to our safe place in a crazy world. My “top of mind” thought for the week of December 3rd – “You never know,” so make that relationship, do that extra action, because you never know where it will lead. Chef Owner Jon Krinn

Christmas Eve: We are open. Large parties welcome. We are closed Christmas Day.

New Years Eve: We will serve a carte menu with choices, plus a collection of special NYE dishes with particularly interesting and unique products, using a sourcing process that we have become known for, “around the corner, around the country, and around the world”. Email jon@clarityvienna.com for a table.

Private Dining: email me at jon@clarityvienna.com for private dining and large parties. We can look at December for company parties, but January is also a great time to reward your work colleagues with an event.

For Spirit Lovers: Our library continues to grow (biggest in NOVA). Finishing up our A. Smith Bowman in Fredricksburg, 14 year single barrel pick, and awaiting arrival of our next 2 picks, from Smooth Ambler in Maxweltown, WV.  



Chef Owner Jon Krinn

Our Mantra: Be the best part of everybody’s day, including each others. We are friends cooking for friends.

Walk-in Guests:

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 Chef Jon Krinn’s Kitchen Counter – a cooking show in real time! You might have to wait for some seats to open up, but the turn time is normally not toooo long.

Dinner:  reservations highly recommended, but walking in works too (see info above).

Mon – Thurs: 5pm – 10pm
Fri – Sat: 5pm – 11pm
Sun: 5pm – 9pm

patio dining during good weather

Lunch:  reservations or walking in is welcome and accommodated. Tuesday – Friday: 11:30am – 2pm, remaining open throughout the afternoon for open seating, snacks and light custom lunch.


Our online reservation system is Seat Me. Also, you can call or text us at 703-539-8400 with your request. We use “google voice message to text app” 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 clear voice message with your reservation request or ask us to call you back if you are on a landline. We see all messages, as texts, in real time and will text respond within 10 minutes. We monitor messages between the hours of 10:00am – 9:00pm Monday through Friday and 11:00am – 9:00pm Saturday and Sunday. Thank you!

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.



“Don’t let the bubble burst” Chef Owner Jon Krinn


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 Chef Jon’s first-come-first-served “Kitchen Counter” where you are right in the middle of all the action.


Patio Dining

Our patio is open for full service at lunch and dinner for walk in guests. Apologies, but because seating is weather dependent, we can’t take reservations.


We have 3 Private Rooms: email Chef Jon at jon@clarityvienna.com for private dining reservations

“Raid Your Cellar” dinners are really popular in the Cellar: gather a group of friends (10-12 recommended), send Chef Jon a list of wines that you gather from your cellars, and he will create a special multi-couse tasting menu uniquely matched to your wines. Bring as much wine as you want – WITH NO CORKAGE FEE!! (Tasting menus are $140 per guest). Email me at Jon@clarityvienna.com to schedule a date.
