Westend Bistro DC
Lovely place!Great food, helpful and responsive staff who really care about your dining experience, great cocktail menu. We ate outside and it was loud because of how close it is the the GW ER. Will definitely eat there again, but inside as it was much quieter.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely MealWe ate outside on West End Bistro's sliver of a patio, that was pretty well screened by potted plants from the traffic just a few steps away on a busy corner. There were four of us dining, and every course each of us ordered was absolutely first-rate. We wondered why the cavernous restaurant inside was virtually empty. We look forward to returning.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh MarksWest End Bistro Lives up to its rep. GREAT food and a wonderful vibe.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSwankWestend was an awesome experience. We decided to go with a friend who was from out of town and were so excited when we left. It is not a cheap meal to say the least, but it is definitely worth every penny. We decided to get a few different dishes and eat it tapas style. All of the dishes are beyond delish! Each one is also so creative but completely perfect. The wine list is extensive and the waitress knew what she was talking about when we asked questions, which is always a plus in my book. Also, if you want to trick your significant other (or yourself) into actually liking brussel sprouts- get the side order of them here because they were on point.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGoing the extra mileWe are somewhat regulars here and find that the restaurant management is very committed to pleasing its customers. For example, some menu items we like were discontinued. We ask periodically if they can still be ordered, and by and large, Westend Bistro is able to comply.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day celebrationOur daughter and family live too far away, so my husband surprised me on Mothers Day by taking me to WestEnd.
It was our first time. We were definitely not disappointed! I had the (Butter) Fish special and he had the steak -- both wonderful! We also loved the mac n cheese, and the s'mores dessert was fun -- and really good!
We'll be back!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in West End.We live in Annapolis and are always looking for places to eat in
D.C. which don't require driving the beltway or crossing over the
park to the West side of the city. We had an early dinner and
found the service to be exceptional and the food almost as good.
The highlights were the skate wing and the special desert we split.
I know we will go back to eat here again soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy partner and I were takenMy partner and I were taken to the West End Bistro for my birthday by an out-of-town friend. We'd been before, several yeas ago, and remembered that it was good. This time it was excellent. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was friendly and helpful, and the restaurant's ambiance was lovely. We couldn't have been happier!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgot noisy, which was complicatedgot noisy, which was complicated by the fact that we were at a two top right at a bus station.

Got there a bit late (called in advance) because of the awful storm, shown to a table but when I asked for a nearby booth they made the switch. Helpful server, good food. We'll return. Only glitch was valet parking. The line was so long on arrival and we were running late, so we used self-park, which turns out not to be run by the hotel. Instead of costing $8, we were hit with a $26 bill. It might be helpful to clarify that on the restaurant Website. Otherwise, lovely evening.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience at theWonderful experience at the Westend Bistro. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked.
