Our Mantra: We want to be the best part of everybody’s day, including our own.

My culinary vision: Create excitement through constant – even “at the moment” – menu change, utilizing our access to the best local and worldwide products available. We passionately source ingredients around the corner, around the country, and around the world for our community to try. It is a true pleasure to cook for you.

Dinner at 5 every evening
Lunch at 1130 Tues | Wed | Thur | Fri

Dress Code: wear anything you want, but if you’re asking let’s call it sharp casual

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 Kitchen Counter. You might have to wait for some seats to open up, but the turn time is normally not all that long.

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

Lunch:  reservations or walking in is welcome and accommodated

Our online reservation system is Seat Me. Also, you can call or text us at 703-539-8400 with your request. We use a “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 “The Pass,” 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.

Private Dining

“The Cellar,” my 12-seat, glass-enclosed private room is literally IN my kitchen – and fully AV/WiFi loaded.  I will create a flexible menu for your group to fit your event – business or social.  Email my team at managers@clarityvienna.com for more information.

“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.
