Over the years an excellent location for restaurants even the cinema has upgraded itself

A great selection of restaurants from Mexican, Asian, American, fish and others. Not easy to find parking which shows how popular it has become.

So as you have probably read in some of the other reviews, you have to pay to park at RTC now, but just during the week. It is free on the weekend and on holidays (but you need to confirm which holidays). Thus I have decided on will only go there now on the weekends. My recommendation though is to... More

More aggravation than it is worth. By the time you download the parking app, enter more info than you should have to for parking, and then realize that you have parked in the wrong place to get a validation, the annoyance factor is past the pleasure factor. I have no idea what they are thinking. But there are far too... More

Reston Town Center is only a few blocks away, so I have the option of visiting frequently. And I used to, until the recently-instituted policy of charging for parking began. Now, if you drive there, you have to figure out which garage a particular business validates, or else you get stuck for the $3/hour charge. We parked on the street... More

Reston Town Center has every form of entertainment including seasonal events such as Octoberfest in the Fall, and outdoor skating rink in the winter, art festivals in the spring, and fun in the sun with music, shopping, dining out, and relaxing in the center square by the fountain eating a Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Fun to be had by... More

Living nearby, I have been going to Reston Town Center since it opened. I've always loved shopping, eating, special events and just walking through. But now you have to pay for parking Monday-Friday. And it's not cheap. Some places validate, but when I went last night, I never got the code to put into the validation machines until my parking... More

Yes there is free parking on weekends, but it is a zoo! Was much more pleasant prior to the parking change.

Two bucks an hour. Watch out. Used to be free. Only shopping center in the county that charges. Used to love going there.

I've lived in the region since 1990, and in Vienna since 1996. I have been coming to the Reston Town Center to eat, shop, see a movie, or take in an event. That will happen no more. Want to see a movie and have dinner? that will be a new $9 dollar tax on you — pure profit. Want to... More

Why is it necessary to take a perfectly great town center and start charging for parking, especially when there are so many fine restaurants outside the center with free parking. This is not Washington D.C. You are hurting your customer base and your merchants. I can't imagine a merchant which rented space under the assumption that parking would be free... More
