The services and ambience are good. But for the value of money, the food isn’t that great

Our dinner at Bombay Velvet was delicious. The food is really the star at this new restaurant. The chef has created many tasty delights based on a fusion of Indian cuisine and modern combinations. Fascinating tastes well-prepared. The night we were there, the restaurant was almost full (it was a Friday night), and most of the patrons were Indian, so that's a good sign that Indians in this area enjoy eating at this restaurant. The two things that took away from our eating experience were the high level of noise, which made it difficult to talk with our friends, and the remarkably slow service. At this restaurant, you have to wait a lot for your dishes to arrive, and for the wait staff to visit your table throughout the dining experience. A shame. Otherwise I would give this place 4 stars.

Beautiful restaurant, modern and elegant, great for a special occasion or fancy date night. I'm calling the food nouveau Indian because it's not your traditional Indian food that every other place serves. In fact, we didn't find any of our "go to" entrees on the menu. However, if you want something different this is the place. I love the decor, feels super plush, like the name implies. It is comparatively expensive and probably wouldn't bring children here.

Here’s my detailed review: simply loved the ambience, decor and presentation of the food... very upscale .. Food was hit or miss.. as with most restaurants... they brought us the meal platter menu for lunch.. said we cd order a la carte too from a separate menu but we both thought we wd try the platter so we can try more items that way.. as that menu looked good for our late lunch...the baingan, paneer curries, Sambhar were very different but tasted really good as were the appetizers and the salad... the Sambhar could have been more traditional, tasted like a simple curry... lemon rice wasn’t flavorful but plain as I guess it was supposed to be that way to pair with the accompaniments... husband said naan and kheer were awesome.. he had mine too:) boondi raita was bland and soggy..
last min I thought I wd look at a la Carte menu while they were working on the bill and I was so mad at myself... they had so many unique items ... so hv to go back to try them another day!

We went for lunch, when they have a prix-fixe menu available for $15.50 (not including beverages). My wife and I each ordered from the prix-fixe menu, and that was more than enough food for two hungry people. I had a delicious, spicy lamb curry, with sauce so flavorful I ate most of it with the wonderful accompanying butter naan. I also ordered a fried fish dish which was arrived crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. It was good, but overwhelmed by the lamb. In addition to the butter naan, the lunch also came with excellent lentils and gulab jamun. I can't comment on the latter, as I've never been a fan.

My wife ordered the Paneer Makhani, which was amazing. The paneer was had a dense, creamy texture, and the makhani curry was perfect. She also ordered a chicken dish which she loved, and I have forgotten, because I loved the lamb so much. Her meal was also accompanied by the naan, lentils, and gulab jamun.

Service was wonderful.

This was an atypical Indian dining experience. Food quality to price ratio is less than one. Service was absolutely awful. Very anemic. We were charged for two alcoholic drinks when we had only water.

For a fine dining Indian restaurant in the ‘burbs, I was excited to eat here. Alas, I was disappointed with the overall service. The ambiance is lovely and the food is good (non-veg dishes were better than the veg dishes). However, it lacks consistency and quality of service. Train your people in customer service and not just to follow orders from the manager or higher ups. And then there are smaller issues that can be easily fixed. The beautiful plates with “Bombay Velvet” etched on them were taken away once you are seated and when asked why we can’t eat on them, the reply was, “it’s only for show” !! Seriously???! I also noticed that several serving dishes were too large for the food served within it AND for the table. So for a table of 7 guests, there was eventually no place to put anything extra down! We were served cold jalebis and gulab jamuns and were told, “South Indians eat it that way” (whaaaat?)!! This South Indian didn’t take kindly to that. Lastly, splitting the tab between all of us took a lot of coaxing. In the end, they obliged but not after several convos. This took away from the whole experience. The most important takeaway for the owners from this review should be that the food is good (which is half the battle won) but service and putting the customer first can improve.

Excellent food, even satisfying to two young children. Enjoyed the three cheese appetizer, the butter chicken, the scallops, and the naan. Attentiveness was good; food delivery seemed long for a weeknight evening with a lighter crowd and two youngsters.

It's still and I think the dishes (spinach chaat in particular) need some work. Pricing was a bit high as well. The place is stunning, and our server was attentive without being intrusive. Odd that a man who appeared to be the owner or manager was roaming around looking surly and failed to acknowledge the three tables of customers. Saw him drive off in a Maserati, so he wasn't a dishwasher!

Too expensive for indian food standards. Many upscale restaurants in DC are not as expensive as this one. Vegetarian dishes are ranging from $20 to 26 and the quantity is not even sufficient for one person. My mohito was watered down and My huband's bay of bengal drink was tasteless, waste of money.
The dishes are fancy but too big for the size of table, Tables are too small to fit the fancy serving dishes. I ordered Dal Makhni, the dish took more than half of the table and hardly had enough for both of us to share.
What I liked was that the dishes were out of the box, the chef was creative. Loved the decor!

Awesome modern indian food. The options were plentiful, the mushroom appetizer was delicious as was the lamb chop appetizer. The lobster curry was divine. The craft drinks were a lot of fun. I would highly recommend this to anyone. (Only thing they were lacking was a vegetarian curry which I found surprising.)

Way too expensive. $80.00 for an Appetizer, Entree and 2 glasses of wine. Menu and presentation was exquisite. Eclectic for an Indian restaurant.
Lunch for $20.00 would be more affordable. That's what I plan to recommend to a friend. Will not go again for dinner on account of expense.

Bombay Velvet has very good food, and a nice, if somewhat non-authentic Indian ambiance. But that's ok - the food was what we went for anyway. And the service was very good as well. Would definitely go back again.
One thing though, I had been trying to get a reservation through Open Table for several weeks, and finally just reserved several days in advance. However, when we got to the restaurant (reservation was for 6:45), there were many empty tables, so I asked my wife to check Open Table and see what was open. She said that the next reservation was 8:15 - I don't understand because there were a lot of open tables at that time (around 7:00).

Would recommend with a proviso - food is good but not what you would expect if you want a curry - no curry. All food mildly spiced and more geared towards fine dining with an Indian twist - the inspiration according to our waiter is more European. Food also overpriced although service very good.
Ambience interesting and modern if somewhat dark.

Service, food, ambiance were just ok. Not worth the very high price. If you go, set your expectations. This is not a typical Indian restaurant...they strive for a hip, fine dining experience. Go to see and be seen, except nobody is there. Maybe they are too early for Reston's development... we are not yet urban enough. AC is blasting too.
