Welcome Home! I am so excited every day to bring your support and our passion together at Clarity, as well as privileged to highlight the amazing work of the women and men artisan vegetable farmers, butchers, fisherman, huntsmen, vintners, distillers, and cheese makers that enable us to have so much fun.

My Principles of “Push Cooking”. Push the profiles of sweet, sour, bitter, acid, heat, umami, smoke, char, brine, citrus, caramel, spice, glaze, herb, age, and pungency into each dish with minimal use of fat.

Congrats to my team AND our guests, taking equal pride in winning the 2018 RAMMY for Upscale Casual Restaurant of the Year from the Restaurant Association of Washington! Brought one home to NOVA!! #viennarocks #novarocks #community #passionnotwork #neverstop

Whiskey / Bourbon Update: Our 14 year aged bourbon barrel pick from A. Smith Bowman Distillery  in Fredericksburg is showing beautifully – super viscous caramel and vanilla on this aged single barrel. My second barrel pick is coming up in October at Smooth Ambler in Greenbrier County, WVA.

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 Jon’s Chef Counter. You might have to wait for some seats to open up, but the turn time is normally not toooo long.

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

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

patio 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


Our online reservation system is Seat Me. Also, you can call or text us at 703-539-8400 with your request. We use a “google voice message 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 ask us to call you back. 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. Please specify if you are calling from a landline, so we can call you back. 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.

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 “Chef Jon’s 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 (8-12 recommended), send me a list of wines that you gather from your cellars, and I will create a special multi-couse tasting menu uniquely matched to your wines. Bring as much wine as you want – WITH NO CORKAGE FEE!! (My tasting menus are $140 per guest). Email me at Jon@clarityvienna.com to schedule a date.
