Calistro Bistro Hilton Village reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Great food, relaxed atmosphere
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 12/31/2012
    Thoroughly enjoyed our New Years Eve dinner at Calistro. Food was overall very good and interesting. My wife's chicken was a little overcooked but my mahi mahi was very tasty. My daughter had the beef wellington which looked great. Our salads were also excellent and dessert was a great finish. We will definitely be going back to try more.

    My wife and I ate at Calistro following Mass on Christmas Eve. We thought it was terrific that they were open. We enjoyed a great meal (Lamb Meatloaf) with a very nice wine. As always, the service was great. We just think this is a wonderful neighborhood place with great food and service.

    My wife and I had dinner at Calistro with our son and his young family. We had been looking forward to returning to our favorite spot after having been away for about 6 months. We had a great time. As always, the food and service were both terrific. We tried a few new items on the menu; I had the lamb meatloaf which I loved and would highly recommend. In any case, we had a great evening and it was just very pleasant to be back at our favorite neighborhood bistro.

    I ordered the Vegetarian Plate, which was outstanding (despite the boring name). The dish was beautiful to look at and the vegetables in the terrine melded with the orzo and marinara to create wonderful flavors. Servers were attentive and friendly.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/18/2012
    On a Saturday night, in the heart of dinnertime, it was us, a waitress, a bartender, and two bar patrons, plus a cook or two. Why? The food here is excellent. My date's pot roast was hearty and delicious. My chicken was less hearty but equally tasty. We expected to be elbow-to-elbow with our fellow diners, instead of listening to our own voices echo around the nearly-empty room. I hope things pick up; this place is too good to be allowed to wither away. FYI: although it is related to the Calistro in DC Ranch Crossing, the menu is completely different.

    We went to dinner early so the noise level was still low enough for us to talk. Music on the patio was just starting as we were leaving so we sat on the patio and had another glass of wine and listen for at least an hour. Van and Melanie were great and sang "our" type of music. They went around to the tables at their break and we found out about her dog and pot bellied pig rescue facility. Nice people. We will be back for the great food and music.

    We went there on a Saturday evening at 6:30 and left about 9:00. There were still many empty tables, bar was void of guests except two and one couple on patio. They had a male singer who was 'screaming' out 'music' which three tables asked to lower the volume. Softer music (guitarist and non vocal) would have been better for ambiance and hearing your tablemates!! Food was good, however. I think the one in DC Ranch Village is brighter and prettier.

    Our group of five enjoyed a delicious dinner. We started with the falafel balls and hummus appetizers. The falafels were very tasty and the presentation was unique. The hummus was tasty and had a seasoning that made it stand out from what you can get elsewhere. Most of us had fish entrees that were cooked perfectly. We split the vegan rice pudding and the chocolatine (?) dessert. The rice pudding was very good and the chocolate dessert was chocolate-filled tart in a very thin pastry. Yum! Our waitress was very attentive.

    In all fairness, I did not like my only visit to Calistro Bistro a year ago when I went.. It is now a year later and I should give it another try after its opening. The food combinations were odd and weird tasting. My first shock was they charged for bread as an appetizer at $4.50. The restaurant was divided in two...bar and restaurant and at the time you couldn't order bar food in the restaurant side. Maybe I would have liked some of the bar food choices. It seemed more populated. It is still there and perhaps it has altered some of its earlier dishes. It must have in order to stay in business for a year.

    when we arrived, hostess could not find reservation. Restaurant was not crowded so we were seated immediately. A few minutes later I went to hostess and mentioned the reservation may have mistakenly gone to restaurant's other location....she looked at me like "it's not important...you have a table." My meal was fairly good but my husbands was skimpy in size and only fair. There are so many other more attractive and good places to go in same area.....we will probably choose one of them.

    Dinner was OK - nothing special. The salads were crisp and tasty. Main courses lacked interest. Burger was mediocre, but sweet potatoe puffs were quite fun. Flatbreads were relatively tasteless. The chocolate dessert we had heard so much about was a real disappointment.

    My wife and I and another couple visited Calistro Bistro Hilton Village for Easter brunch.The food was unbelievably good and attractively presented. Our waitress, Anna, was superb and also an excellent "ambassador" for the resturant as she took pains to inform us of all of the specials during the week and happy hour, etc. The ambience and "curb appeal" are lacking.

We all tried different entres from chicken to pasta to pork; all were great. Service was wonderful. At the end, our friends were just raving about the food, wine, service and the great neighborhood "feeling" of Calistro. Many thanks for a great time!!!

    I went to the new Calistro location based on a previous experience at the DC Ranch location. My experience at the new Hilton Village location was a little disappointing. The entrance to the restaurant didn't seem to be quite finished. It just felt odd. We had a large group for lunch for which I had made reservations, and we were seated near the back of the restaurant. It felt like we were in Siberia, since all of the other patrons in the restaurant were near the front or seated outside. So, that too, was a little odd. Our waiter was good, but the timing of the food coming out was slow. A couple of people ordered burgers and their fries weren't cooked properly. Beet salads were wonderful as well as the butter lettuce salad.

    My wife and I had been to this new restaurant a couple of times already. But this time, we brought our visiting daughter, her husband and 3 children, ages 5, 3 and 1!! It turned out really well. The food, service and wine were all great as they had been before. The three grandchildren also had a great time. The children's menu worked very well; the 5 year old ate double portions!!! And, very interestingly, the host had put us at a table that had a window looking into the kitchen. The 5 and 3 year olds had a great time watching how the food was prepared and cooked. The kids had a great time and that allowed the adults to enjoy their dinners as well. A great time enjoyed by all!!

    Calistro Bistro is a new restaurant in a location that's been unsuccessful for previous restaurants. We hope this restaurant is the turning point for the location. We were compelled to try Calistro Bistro based on a friend's advice, and were not disappointed. Everyone enjoyed their food, and the waiter - who was perhaps also a manager or owner - was gracious, cheerful and helpful, despite having to make frequent trips into the kitchen in order to answer our questions about different dishes. We tried an assortment of dishes, including desserts. Everyone went away happy. We'll be encouraging everyone to try Calistro Bistro, in the hopes that it will garner enough business to stay afloat. We'd selfishly like that.
