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.

    I wanted to love this place. The fall salad was absolutely delicious. The tequila cocktail was delicious, too. I was looking forward to the Chilean Seabass (that cost a hefty $41) but was disappointed when it arrived burnt on the top and lacked seasoning. I hate asking for salt & pepper at a restaurant where I'm spending at least $100 on dinner. The curried coconut milk was so thick and unappetizing. Overall, the plate looked like a hot mess and it looked like the chef had never cooked a piece of fish or he was distracted when he "fired it" on the grill. Regardless, it was a waste of $41. My friend got the Bucatini + Fried Burrata with bacon - she was underwhelmed and said it was pretty boring. I tasted hers when I was done with mine and I agreed with her assessment. For dessert, I got the Croissant Donut with Fig Compote....it tasted like a fig newton. The actual pastry part was delicious but it was a fail with the fig (IMO)...this delicious pastry needed a different fall twist...something with pumpkin or apples. It would have sold out if it were an apple donut with homemade vanilla ice cream or a pumpkin donut with cinnamon ice cream...but no once asked me.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent - standards prepared with subtly unique textures and flavors. The staff is efficient, the drinks are great, and the atmosphere is lovely. You can take a date, or you can sit at the bar, chat, and watch the 2 large TV screens. I had the shrimp tempura tonight. It's an appetizer, but more than enough for a main course. That left room for the creme brulee with oranges and strawberries, accompanied by an espresso martini.

    First clue was nobody was in the place at all and that is a bad sign on a Sunday afternoon in Arlington which is a hopping brunch scene. The BLT is on a hard baguette and the bacon was horrible so my wife sent it back. Our waitress was very sweet and did what she could to make it right, Just not a great place and won’t go back

    Maison Cheryl is the best restaurant in all of Clarendon if not all of Arlington. Top 3 of our favorite dishes are ratatouille, honey lavender duck, and bucatini burrata. You MUST finish with the fresh Madeline’s and espresso martinis (homemade coffee liquor!). The staff is super friendly and great ambiance. Gorgeous bar. Such a hidden gem! Our go to for any date night or special occasion!

    Rather disappointing. Only two employees working Sunday brunch so very slow service. My “spicy Bloody Mary” had no spice, it tasted like a small glass of V8 with some black pepper. Food was fine but nothing great. My meal came out without the side- I had to ask for it. Didn’t live up to reputation, won’t be returning.

    We went with a party of 6 to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Everyone thought the decor was really nice, the staff were all very attentive and helpful, and the bathrooms were clean. We tried a variety of entrees, including the duck, truffle burger and sea bass, which were all very good, and the ingredients tasted fresh. The cocktails and mocktails that we got were also tasty. The staff was also cool about me bringing cupcakes for the birthday, which was great. The only small negative was the bones in my sea bass filet. With fish, I’d expect to encounter a few small ones, but these were several and big enough that I would’ve expected the kitchen to catch.

    Food was fine but we asked for a quiet table, we were taken to the back alcove, tho other tables were open. Then as soon as our food arrived the hostess seated a raucous birthday party of 6 (with balloons, etc.) right beside us. So my partially deaf father could hear none of our conversation. We will Not be dining there again!

    The food was excellent, the drinks were great. The menu was very unique for what I thought was a standard French restaurant. Definitely the spot to go to for dinner with friends, co-workers, or even a cute date! Loved the décor and our waitress was a delight! I recommend the Miso Salmon, Bucatini and Fried Burrata, and Baked to Order Madeline was a great sweet but very light treat to add at the end. Cant wait to come back!
