We took a house guest here for a belated birthday. We were disappointed to see that Carlos was not working on Sunday but the staff treated us well. A little confusion about the birthday drink. They said it was dessert & ended up bringing over 3 comp Kir Royales. Later (after we were full & had ordered 3 desserts) they sent over a candle in a large Crème Brulee. Overkill albeit delicious. We loved the appetizers, entrees & desserts. So did our guest. None of us could eat dinner that night! Looking forward to our next adventure in Occoquan.

This places service was impeccable. The owner forgot we were bringing a new born with us and had a baby carrier with us so he didn’t have a table just yet so while we waited we were showered with campaign and appreciatizers. Then the atmosphere was pleasant and the food was superb. Best place to eat in town. Sad and happy that I just discovered this place.

A very cute and fancy restaurant. The food and service was excellent although the dessert could have been better for the price. The only con was that we felt like we were having dinner with the couple next to us. Overall a great dining experience! Will be back for sure!

This is our 3rd or 4th time at Bistro L'Hermitage and, as usual, the experience was awesome. The food is always very good and service is snappy. Great place if you want to enjoy French cuisine without the overbearing pretentiousness of other French restaurants. We'd never drive clear up to D.C. or Tysons so having a great restaurant this close is terrific.

Have eaten there many times before. Food is always excellent ... love the lobster bisque. Service on this occasion was lacking ... it seemed we were handed off from one server to another the entire evening. Following dessert, when we were obviously done and ready to leave, we sat ... and sat ... and sat ... while servers walked past us, cleared empty tables, etc. The head waiter and manager were too busy training and general bs'ing with the hostess. Finally got the check after a 20 minute wait. Disappointing.

This is a wonderful place to dine - the staff is outstanding and I love the champagne by the glass - you just want to sit and enjoy!
