 (Washington DC)·Dined 2 days ago

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.

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!

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.

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' ...

Nice quiet French restaurant. Fantastic service. Nice ambience, not super fancy or chic, but pleasant room. Wasn't too crowded on a Wednesday evening when we were there. Food was good; simple French classics on the menu. I had Duck a l'Orange, which was very nice. My sister had a chicken dish that she loved. The chef (or owner?) stopped by our table several times and seemed genuinely interested in how our meal was. He also gave us an after-dinner aperitif on the house. I would go back. Bill for the three of us (only one or two glasses of wine) with 20% tip was $150.

I booked a thanksgiving dinner for a group of 22 people at Bistro Bistro. The entire group had a great time and I would definitely recommend the restaurant for large groups. The staff were very attentive and we really appreciated that they split our checks (food and drink) with no issue. It was a four course meal for just about $30 and the food was really nice, perfect for thanksgiving dinner. There was also an option to order of the normal menu which some of the group decided to do. William was a great host and he even gave us four free bottles of champagne and after dinner shots for the occasion. We stayed for over four hours but at no point did we feel like we needed to leave which was different to a lot of other restaurants. I would definitely recommend Bistro Bistro for other groups.

Had dinner the night before for 2, recommended it the next night for a party of 6 coming from a conference from which it was easily walkable from the hotel. Has a nice menu, varied cuisine, appetizers, entrees, salads, and including some Italian specialties and even sandwiches and pizza. Food was nicely prepared and reasonably priced. Was quiet enough for conversation even though busy. Very attentive and personal service, including surprised comping the table with a serving of each of the 6 dessert choices on the menu and providing boxes to take back the leftovers.
