We have dined here a few times, most recently for my granddaughter's birthday. We have always had a very good experience. I would strongly advise making reservations as it is almost always crowded. The food is good, frankly much better than I expected seeing that it is part of a store for children. The service is friendly and attentive. The... More

The atmosphere is what you would expect, the girls all got to eat lunch with their dolls at the table. The service was good, the food was mediocre, and the prices were a bit high. I know it is all about the girls having a good time but at $31 a pop for every girl I would recommend waiting until... More

This is a fun adventure for American Girl fans and a great idea for a birthday party. Space is limited so reservations are recommended. Food is American fare. Wait staff are entertaining as well. We had a terrific and memorable birthday party here. So much fun.

American Girl is way overpriced--we all know that. So when I took my daughter here to purchase her first doll for her 8th birthday & then the Bistro for her birthday lunch, I knew it would probably be overpriced for what we received. And I was right. We waited FOREVER for our food. We had a reservation--we arrived a bit... More

Celebrating my granddaughter's 6th birthday with her new "Truely Me" American Doll at the Tyson's Corner American Doll store, outside Washington DC, store was a little girl's dream come true. The store itself is amazing with an excellent and very helpful staff. The "Bistro" was an amazing experience. My daughter and I made a 1PM lunch reservation. We chose the... More

Our waitress made the experience amazing. Our meal came with an appetizer, entree, dessert, and beautiful drinks. My daughter received a (whole) birthday cake, beautifully decorated in white and pink. You can bring a doll to the bistro or you can pick one at the register. The doll can accompany you at the table and will have her own seat,... More

My sister and I took my niece for her sixth birthday and had a great time! The food was actually very tasty and the portions were large. Everyone gets to choose an appetizer and an entree for $17; dessert and drinks are extra. We chose the Soft Pretzel Bites, Macaroni and Cheese Bites, and Mediterranean Hummus which we shared. All...

We went to this location as a family and found the food to be better than some of the other American Girl Cafes we have been to. The food choices for the adult palate were surprisingly good. The service was particularly good and very attentive.
