Contemporary French / American

Chef Robert Maher conceptualized the name Maison Cheryl for his late mother-in-law, Cheryl Glaessner, who passed in 2019. Cheryl’s warm spirit and love of the Parisian aesthetic are both elements that Maher has channeled into our inclusive French New-American Bistro. In our dining room, guests will enjoy an on-trend experience in a bright, bold space that boasts marble countertops, refurbished wood tables, and modern light fixtures. When you dine with us, we hope you experience the atmosphere of our family table where excellent service and delicious house-made desserts are a staple.

    The food was not well prepared - undercooked vegetables and very overcooked meat. The prices for the quality were sky high. Servers were immature and unprofessional. The restaurant is cute but beware, definitely recommend skipping this one.

    We went for Sunday brunch. The decor and ambiance and service were all terrific. The Brunch menu is diverse and everything we had was excellent and a little unusual, which made it lovely experience. We loved the Maison burger, the fried shrimp tostada, the chicken & waffles.

    Nice restaurant, great food, great service and easy ambiance. We had a fun group of 6 and some of the patrons were a little put out by our jocularity. But that is an Arlington issue. Not a restaurant thing. Shout out to Brandy our waitress. Nice job!!

    This is our new go to in our neighborhood! The food, cocktails, ambience and service was great. Our service was provided by Maria. She was well versed in the menu, her service was great for our table of 7. When she gave us the check, she let us know that the gratuity had been added. We appreciated the heads up! Lots of choices for most people and we were very pleased. Heads up: the restaurant is on Fillmore--which crosses Wilson Blvd. NOT on Wilson. Confusing for first timers....

    3 of our four meals were good; the fourth was way too salty and was inedible. It had to be returned to the kitchen. Server was helpful. The noise level was very high; difficult to hear the conversation at our table. Perhaps some acoustic panels or sound absorbing materials will help….too many hard surfaces.

    Holy toledo - what an AMAZING treasure is this restaurant. I can't believe we didn't "discover" it until now. Everything about this place excels - the food was over the top (and I've eaten in Paris and Lyon). I had the beet and feta salad, which was a genius combination of flavors and perfect textures and the ratatouille entree (perfection). And I'm still swooning over the croissant-donut dessert. I so appreciated, too, the extensive selection of mocktails on the menu (folks who don't drink alcohol appreciate this more than you know), the sublime service, all of it. I also appreciated the attention to ambiance - every detail. Very comfortable chairs, good ventilation, fresh flowers at every table, exquisite lighting, not-loud music (oh thank you thank you) , and three large classy black-and-white framed photographss of the outside architectural features of the building. Just brilliantly put together, all of it. We will be going back many times and bringing friends. Seriously - this is an AMAZING treasure in Arlington.

    Wasn’t a huge fan of this place. Took waitress 10 mins to see us after we were seated (which was prompt). The drinks were good, but main course came out mid-way thru appetizer. Had told waitress I would like to order a glass of wine with my main course, and she never took that order from me. I ordered the truffle waygu beef burger. Definitely cooked on too high of a temperature, as outside was charred but inside was definitely undercooked. Further, the waitress took my plate away before I was finished eating. Never had that happen before.. (And yes, it was clear I was still eating). Expected a lot better service for the restaurant being in a prime location. Would not dine again. Gave 2 stars as the drinks were decent, but that’s about it.

    This is a great new place in Clarendon. The duck breast I got was delicious, and the sauce on my wife’s Chilean sea bass was amazing. The most notable thing about this place though is the ease of conversation. We were a group of 50 something foodies . All were happy, and amazed at how easy it was to hear ourselves on a Friday night full house. Very high ceilings, which absorb the sound. Vibe is New York meets Paris.

    I love Maison Cheryl. The staff engaging and just the right level of attentive. The food is fun and delicious. The place was empty though. We were the only diners. Several people stopped in to look at the menu, but did not stay. I suspect the prices are a deterrent—going to have to come down to stay open.

    We had a nice time! The truffle fries were AMAZING. I think the food is a little bit pricey for the value but I would definitely come again. Its one of the few places in Arlington where it’s quiet enough on a Friday night that you can actually have a conversation which I really enjoyed. The ambience of the restaurant is very nice and the service was great

    I wanted to love this place. The room is beautiful and comfortable. I could've done without the big screen tv's above the bar. They don't need them here - without them, overall ambiance would bump up a few notches. Service was ok if a bit spotty. The staff didn't seem comfortable with one another; there was some tension that was off-putting. Food was good. It's a tough time to start a business, especially as regards staffing. With a bit of time I think this restaurant will find its rhythm. We will try again.

    Food was fabulous and cocktails were creative. A couple at the next table even commented on how good our sea bass smelled when it arrived. A real rose on the table was a nice touch. Our server was delightful. The downside was the noise level and the lack of comfortable spacing between tables. It was difficult to carry on a conversation.

    My wife and I made a last-minute reservation here for a celebratory dinner date. We couldn’t have been more pleased! The food was delicious-the pepper and truffle fry appetizers were both extremely well flavored and prepared perfectly. My wife had the salmon and I the steak and we were both very happy. The green peppercorn sauce was delectable! Fortunately, we saved room for dessert! We will be returning to get a second chance with the freshly baked madeleines (orange with creme) and the croissant donuts (honey and cinnamon) which left us full and happy. The service was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional and the noise level was very reasonable. All in all, a wonderful place for a delicious meal!

    Everything about our meal was great except the service. Cocktails/wine choices were varied and perfectly prepared. Appetizers included shrimp tempura, Brussels sprouts and a beet and goat cheese salad. All were beautifully prepared, large portions, great flavors. Mains were lavender and honey duck breasts and bouillabaiasse-every bite perfect, served hot and at accurate "doneness!" Warm Madeleines and flowerless chocolate cake were winners. Our server was pleasant and attentive, but rushed us in every way. Too quick to ask for drink orders, too quick to ask for decisions about entrees, interrupted our conversation unnecessarily multiple times, served entrees while we were still enjoying appetizers. We felt rushed and somewhat hounded, even after asking for things to slow down a bit. We were well within our 90 minutes allotted time for our table and were not close to holding up the next seating. Perhaps she is inexperienced and needs training to better read her customers. The food was so delicious that this small glitch would not keep us from returning soon!
