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
