Took the family to Bistro Blanc for my wife's birthday. As usual, the food was fantastic. Each dish was beautifully plated and presented and the flavors were extraordinary. Waitstaff was friendly, helpful and attentive. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. This is our go-to place when we get to go out.

Good Food Good Wine
As usual Bistro Blanc pleases. Food was excellent Chef Specials of Oysters and the seared Foie Gras were both innovative and fun. Crab Empanadas were spicy and full of crab. The duck breast main course was well done with several interesting sauces. The seared tuna main course was a good preparation with excellent ingredients. Wine list and wine bar were interesting to play with - several very nice selections. A fruit cobbler and a bread pudding rounded out the meal on a very nice note. A glass of the house made limoncello was the final note to a great meal. Service was attentive without being fussy.

Worth the Trip for Any Occasion
For anyone looking to get out of the typical Baltimore Metro-area restaurant routine, make the trip out to Bistro Blanc in Glenelg. Don't be fooled by the strip mall look on the outside, the food is always top-notch. The ambiance has casual class, with the walls draped with a large variety of wine that you can peruse at your pleasing. They feature sous-vide preparation for many of their meats, and the plate arrangements are stellar. Just make sure to order their famed "Pig and Fig" appetizer - it's to die for.

I've been to Bistro Blanc a handful of times over the years (as I don't live out that way), but I've enjoyed each one of my meals there. Most recently, I had the Chilled Avacado Soup with Shrimp, which was very flavorful with just the right amount of "kick", and the Lamb Burger with Parmesan/Rosemary Fries. The lamb burger is a tasty alternative to your typical beef burger (although my friend had the beef burger and loved it). I definitely suggest trying to go on half-price wine night (Tuesdays), they have a fantastic wine selection!

Really enjoyed my meal
Really nice little situation. Food was quite good, menu eclectic. Sevice was polite but a little inattentive. Found the Blanc Bistro on an open table search.

Good local food
In the burbs, it's sometimes hard to find a great place to take someone special. Although the small strip mall local isn't the most fashionable, I won't hold that against them. It's a matter of economics. What they have done is great. Walk inside and the decor is comfortable and not claustrophobic where table are placed so closely that you feel like you're eating with the next table. Their strength is in their small but well planned menu and more notably wine selection. Dinner was very good. Slight misses but all in all a great eat. I would do it again and will very soon

This was our second visit; the first was for Valentine's Day, and this visit was to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. Both times, the food has been great, the server attentive, and the experience romantic and pleasant.

We were lucky enough to pick
We were lucky enough to pick Restaurant Week for our evening out with new friends so the Prix Fix menu was amazing and priced accordingly. A quiet setting for a Tuesday night dinner made for great conversation . The service was delightful, and ambience perfect. Surrounded by dark, rich colors and wine displays in abundance was a perfect setting.

Our first time at brunch and it was delicious! Really great menu options.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good experience
Restaurant was all we could ask for in the middle of the week. The food was delicious, ambience was relaxing and wait staff attentive, but not hovering. Seasonal dishes make the menu change just often enough to keep you coming back.

Try their enomatic
High-tech enomatic wine dispenser allows oenophiles an easy way to sample several different wines.

Always a delightful experience
Food is always delicious and beautifully presented. Unique combinations of flavors that work well together. Amazing selection of wines. A pleasant atmosphere which makes it easy to feel comfortable. Never afraid to take someone new there or recommend it to someone.

It was our anniversary and
It was our anniversary and we wanted to find someone different to enjoy the occasion but didn't want to travel too far from home. Bistro Blanc had been recommended by a friend and so happy we selected it. The service was outstanding! Being a bit of a "wino" I has so much fun enjoying wines that I would not normally get to enjoy (because of prince) using their ergo' machine. Great night all around and I can't wait to go back!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although they were out of a couple of courses at 6:30 pm, the remaining ones were terrific. I highly reccomend the Pig & Fig - delicious!
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place
Our Friday afternoon brunch was fantastic, just like the three dinners have I had here in the past.
Great food & service with a cool atmosphere.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have eaten here many times over the years and Chef Marc Dixon continues to astound me with his creativity and palate. We had the duck confit with poached eggs and Hollandaise for brunch. It was melt-in-your-mouth. So glad to be able to have a breakfast that is delicious, adventuresome, and exciting. A welcome change from the usual fare. I live an hour away but it is well worth the drive for an incredible experience.

Delish Night Out
Wednesdays are half price burgers and half price beers, you can't beat that! The burgers are very tasty and the beer selection is wonderful. Our server had a good knowledge of craft beers as well. The grilled Brie appetizer was amazing! Regular menu was a tad on the pricey side, and it is definitely a menu for a foodie with a wide taste pallet. Overall it was a great experience! Reservations for a Wednesday night are smart, can do it right from open table, the restaurant does email blasts occasionally to advertise the Wednesday night special.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stopped in for a late night dinner. We especially appreciate 1/2 price wine night.
Entree are always imaginative and tasty.
I had the triple pork dinner and it was excellent, so was my wife's Pig & Fig.
We'll be back.

Best Burger I have had
We went on Wed. for their half priced burgers and beer, although the ladies drank wine. It was one of the best burgers I have ever had. Their presentation of the platter was exceptional. We also had a salad, and although very good, I thought it was a bit overpriced. They had an extensive beer list and many different wines by the glass from which to choose. We will definitely be returning.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was excellent as usual. Tried a cocktail here for the first time - the "Bistro Cocktail" - quite nice blend of sparkling wine, juice and liquer. Wine selection was as usual broad. I like the large selections by the glass or half glass. Appetizers were mussels - very good and a corn veloute with pork croquette also very good. Entrees of Pork Trio and rainbow trout were very enjoyable. The pork trio was particularly good. Peach and Blackberry cobbler rounded out the meal. Bistro Blanc never fails to please we will come back again.

Another Good Experience
We recently dined at Bistro Blanc on a Saturday evening in late September. Upon arriving, we were seated immediately after confirming our reservation via Open Table. Our waiter, Andy, was quick to take our drink order and review the dinner specials for the evening. To start, we tried two of the special appetizers, the soup du jour, which was a corn veloute, and the oysters. Both were delicious. Our entrees also came from the list of daily specials, the pork trio and the trout. The presentation for both dishes was stunning and the food itself was as delicious as it looked. Whenever we go to Bistro Blanc, we always seek out Andy's recommendations whether he is waiting on us or not...he is never wrong. We enjoyed ourselves and will be back.

The Lamb burger was amazing.
The Lamb burger was amazing. My mom and brother got waffles with a banana walnut maple syrup that was delicious. Wish I lived closer so I could make this restaurant my regular spot.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dined here several times this year and each time everything was amazing. Having dined at Iron Bridge we thought nothing would compare. Soooo wrong! Bistro Blanc's chef is top notch and this restaurant is every bit as good if not better than Iron Bridge. Bistro is also much easier to spontaneously drop in unlike the other restaurant. Very consistent service and cuisine. So glad we found it.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome across the board
We had brunch and all the the food was great, we did not have any complaints, food, drinks and service was awesome, there was 6 of us and not one thing was bad, will recommend to friends and will go back again.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great and great
We arrived to two glasses of sparkling wine on the table as we said it was our anniversary. A very nice touch. The foie gras was magnificent, the special oysters were okay...nothing compared to the other stye of raw oysters we had last spring. The main dishes and salad were out of this world. Just stellar, as was the service. The menu is limited, but that's good as they do things right.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love this restaurant. Food is always good. Great wine list.

Great Restaurant - a Glenelg Gem
We had a wonderful time! The service is impeccable the food and wine fantastic. Find out for yourself, Bistro Blanc is a great restaurant!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is interesting and well done. Entrée portions are a bit small. Perhaps a larger starch with the entrée would help.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely Country Feel
We enjoyed our evening at Bistro Blanc, highlighted by the excellent service by Jake. We all enjoyed our various meals, though the menu was somewhat limited in entree selections.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great experience
We celebrated out 25th anniversary at Bistro Blanc. Thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The food was very good, the service was very attentive on the ball. Impeccable service. The ambiance is very nice and quiet with dim lighting. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions. The wine list is well-priced.
We ate at the Iron Bridge a week ago. What a difference. The Bistro Blanc did not "push" the wine, but plenty choices available.
The short ribs were perfect. One of the best I've ever had. The deserts were wonderful. Well done! I will definitely return.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was terrific! Jake our wait person was very attentive. The mushroom soup was out of this world!
We will be back often!

Great get together
Had a great dinner with seasonal dishes squash soup rockfish and half price wine night made it even better
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
all around excellent. reliably deli
My husband and I east here every couple months and I is always delicious. It is one of the few places in Howard county with well made cocktails that are not too syrupy and sweet. The wine selection has depth and breadth. Then service is also great.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a great time! Ran into some friends when we arrived and had a wonderful dinner with a great bottle of wine.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The chef here is very good. He made Brussels sprouts taste excellent.
My wife had the burger , which is always good and the french fries are special.
I had the pumpkin risotto, not on my diet, but very unique and delicious.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful dinner, as always
We have been to Bistro Blanc many times (it's the nicest place to go in our little corner of western Howard County) and it always delivers - creative delicious food, excellent and knowledgeable service, and a nice relaxed atmosphere. This particular dinner was our ladies' night out. I had a lamb bolognese (an entree substitution because they were out of gnocchi bolognese) and it was delicious. The food highlight of the night, tho, was the Crispy Grilled Brussels Sprouts - the best version of this veggie that I ever had! It was an appetizer to share and I could have eaten the whole thing myself. Order this seasonal item while it's on the menu!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM

Been here quite a few times and never disappointed.

Great food. Great service. If you live in Howard cnty it's a must. If not, it's worth a drive.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my fifth or sixth time at BB. The food is always creative and good. The mussels were the best I’ve had in quite a while. Waiter recommended a wine to our taste and he was right on. My only “complaint” is that the waiter didn't leave our white wine near the table. He was busy and we went dry a few times. :-)
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great little find
Cute little place suggested by a friend as we were looking for some place new. We had a few drinks in the bar before dinner. Bar tender was friendly and prompt. Wine list is pretty good. I had the fois gras, scallops and split the bread pudding for desert. All were excellent. Husband had a salad and duck. Again both very good.
Server was friendly and knew the menu.
Have since suggested Bistro Blanc to a friend who has tried it and loved it as well. Will be back.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great on a Wednesday
What a deal!... Half priced beer and hamburgers on a Wednesday evening. Fantastic burgers. My wife had the regular burger and I had the lamb burger. Both were fantastic. Just to mention, the garlic fries were also great. We will definitely return.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Bistro Blanc has reliably interesting and tasty food, well proportioned, sophisticated ambiance, and a fine selection of wines. An impressive restaurant to have in our neighborhood.

We Love Jake! Great Waiter!
Love the dining at BB. We will return, and, bring friends!
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always- great food !
Wednesday night is half price beer and burgers; the selection of hand-crafted/atrsenal beers is very good, and the burgers and hand cut rosemary fries are delicious. A great meal at a vey affordable price!!
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
The presentation of each item was photo worthy, but not overdone. My swordfish was very tasty and moist. The pre-announced substitute for the hanger steak cut was quite favorable. I was able to find a wine that is seldom available on the east coast and that added much to the meal. Service was good.
