I have not been to many restaurants that did NOT have the first or second choice of wines. The waiter gave us a wine listed at $75 for $48, because we did not want to pay $75. They did not have the veal chop and thought they did not have the pear tart even though both were on the menu.
Overall this restaurant provided acceptable but non-memorable Bistro fare. I ordered the cassoulet which was subpar. Duck was dry and a bit tough, not much lamb. Service was good, not many choices for wine by the glass. Overall ambience was good, I ate early on a Friday evening (Before 7:00pm) so there were not many other diners. Prices were reasonable but the one can do better in the category of Bistro dining in DC.
Thanks William and Mike for a beautiful night .We enjoyed our dinner and your service
We have been coming here since the restaurant opened. The food is great, wine list sisreasonable and the service is excellent.
It was a lovely night at Bistro Bistro .We had a blast .Thanks William and the boss Jamal for taking care of our large party
Arrived at 1855 on a Sunday evening. Wasn’t crowded at all. Server was very attentive. My girlfriend and I opted for the three course dinner. Tried beef carpaccio as an appetizer. Was wonderful. Girlfriend’s bisque didn’t appeal to her much. Said it had a curry flavor to it. The lamb was sold out. We had the stuffed salmon and chicken Florentine with mixed veggies. Both were excellent. Desserts were good. The house pino Grigio was very good as well.
The French onion soup tasted like canned soup with a slice of cheese on top of it. The mussels were moderate. The bartender did not know how to serve pastis, a French staple. The pasta tasted like something you would buy at the store and the sauce the same. Service was all together below average.
Food was really good. The service was just ok but I think it was our specific waiter and not the staff on a whole. I will return.
What a lovely little treat Bistro Bistro was. We went for my boyfriend's birthday and they were wonderfully accommodating. I would definitely recommend for a special occasion. The desserts were excellent. They were thorough from start to finish, treated everyone like they were family.
I love Bistro Bistro! I go all the time with my friend and it never disappoints. The service is incredible and the food is always delicious. Last time, our waiter William was exceptional with his service. 10/10 would recommend.
Was told there was plenty of street parking when arriving - but not true.
Silverware was dirty - tabletop needed wiping (gunk on my side)
Ordered lamb chops medium rare - was served well done. Four meaty chops were nicely seasoned but...well done.
Sea bass was horrid - frozen portion was dipped in beer batter/tempura (seemed not quite either or both?) at the restaurant and deep fried - then sauced!
We ordered from the “Restaurant Week” menu at 5pm - but my fiancée was told Creme Broulee (one of three desserts offered) wasn’t available just before the dessert course was to be served. (So how are they out of a featured menu item at 5pm?)
We both ended our meals with Bistro Bistro “Chocolate Soufflé cake” which, was either a TGIF/Chili’s Molten Lava cake or sourced from a wholesale club (Costco?) drowning in chocolate syrup.
Cappuccinos were very nice.
We had a great culinary experience dining with our kids
We chose this restaurant because we could walk from our hotel (Washington Hilton) and because I love merguez. Our starter courses were super good - merguez with tomato sauce and fried egg, and shrimp bisque. So the mediocre main courses were a big disappointment. I ordered salade nicoise and asked for the tuna to be rare - it was medium well. The lettuce was limp and the dressing was only ok. My husband got a pasta with shrimp which was tasteless. We still enjoyed ourselves. I like the menu (classic French bistro food) and would be willing to try other items. Or just have the merguez as a main. It was really good.
Food is substandard quality and so was service
The food I absolutely amazing and the staff is fantastic!
We selected this restaurant for lunch because of the mussels appetizer on the menu. A few minutes after we ordered it, we were informed that they had run out of this menu item. We had also ordered the sea bass on the menu. Again, after a few minutes we were informed that they had run out of sea bass. We wound up ordering rib lamb chops, which were very tasty, but not our first choice. The desserts we ordered were also very good. On the whole, though, we were disappointed and will not return or recommend this restaurant to our friends. There were very few other diners in the restaurant; only three other tables were occupied.
Great experience and atmosphere .The Maïtre D was checking on every single table and he made sure we had a great experience.He urged us to rate the place and we felt we had to write about our experience .Our waiter Taha was very accommodating and welcoming .The bartender Mike was so nice to welcome us with a great smile and some great champagne to finish the night with.Bistro Bistro has the best Crème Brûlée .We will come back when we are in DC
We went there for our friend's birthday, and the food was really great. They brought us a piece of cake and a free carafe of mimosas for her birthday. The atmosphere was very French bistro-esque (the wall decor reminded me of some of the restaurants I went to in Paris). Would definitely recommend for a fun, casual brunch. They called us over to make sure they knew what her name was too, which was really thoughtful.
The service was amazing, the staff was attentive and they catered to my birthday! Very happy I celebrated my birthday there, also the took care of my bill since I was the birthday girl. Very very special.
We enjoyed the lovely atmosphere at Bistro bistro .Mike and William took great care of our small party .The food was great .We will come back .Thanks a lot for a lovely evening
What a great restaurant.I brought a party of 8 people to Bistro and they were all happy with their food and ambiance .The manager checked on us multiple times.Thanks Bistro and Thanks William and the staff .We will come back
I wanted to get a large group of my friends together for brunch and saw they could accomodate bigger parties. There was a lot of corny french decor, it was kind of unsettling. The food was fine and edible, but not good enough to reflect the prices they carried- really expensive for simple dishes. Overall, I'd say this place is kind of weird and ok dining experience.
We had a very large group go to Bistro Bistro for brunch on New Year’s Day. They had a buffet with so many options, all of which were plentiful. They also had carved beef, made to order omelets, fresh fruit and a variety of pastries. There weren’t many other people in the restaurant, which resulted in attentive service. We were so appreciative that we were able to be accommodated on a holiday and will definitely keep Bistro Bistro in mind for future get togethers!!
The service was excellent and so was the food. I ordered something that I did not care for and they took it back without hesitation and make me something else. The Steak and eggs were delicious and the service was impeccable!
Great meal, great service, and a great time. The waiters were very knowledgeable and the food was fantastic.
Wait staff wasn’t very attentive, and the food wasn’t that great.
What a lovely evening at Bistro .The food and the service were great.The whole staff were helpful and accommodating.Thanks William and Mike.We are coming back
Service was horrible.
The menu was excellent! The food was very good. It took awhile for the one of many waiters to come to take our order. I think one waiter should be assigned to each table instead of all different waiters. Other than the service the overall experience was very good.
For Christmas Day dining, the service was not as friendly as it usually is, and the food was not as well prepared. I had poulet francais, which I've had before in this restaurant and liked very much; but on this day it was not well prepared; in fact, it tasted as though it had been recooked and then reheated. It was tough and tasteless, and I didn't finish it. The restaurant showed courtesy in not charging me. Overall, a disappointing experience. Bistro Bistro is a good restaurant; but somehow it really failed on Christmas.
The food is simply horrible. I regret to have spent my money there.
Great to have a place open till late on Xmas Eve! Started out quiet with more diners in as the night progressed.
Escargot is softer than expected; mussels/clams were good except for the tiny sizes...huge portion for the veal chop nicely done.
Services were good to start with. Got cooler with no standard 'thank you, good bye' ...
I had a good time with my family because people was very friendly and we had a good conversation like old friends.
Excellent french cuisine, fois gras, duck. Quiet spot.
What a beautiful night at Bistro bistro .The boss jamil Checked on us on numerous times .He was very courteous and generous .I guess he is the chef .His maître D William was also was very knowledgeable about the menu .He recommended some great wine for the table and we are very grateful for . We had a birthday celebration that the maître D comped her food and provided 2 bottles of Prosecco and her dessert .We did really enjoyed the little time we shared with Bistro staff .We will come back
What a great experience for Christmas Day.We enjoyed the greatest deal of the Four course Menu.William treated our party of 6 with professionalism and positive attitude.All the staff were friendly and accommodating.We will come back to Bistro .What a great find and gem
We met with friends and we all loved the very quiet French atmosphere and food. I am sorry more people don't know what a great place this is. They have a nice bar and even have a great party area up stairs for parties with a second bar.
There is no more brunch buffet on Sundays, that is what was advertised on their website. We just ordered off the menu instead
All of the staff at Bistro Bistro were so helpful, ensuring that our dining experience was great. The portions were big and the food was very good as well. Would definitely recommend!
