One of our go-to special restaurants; this time it was my wife's birthday. As always, service is impeccable and the food first rate. We had the hangar steak and salmon special. The chocolate mousse and creme brulee desserts were both delectable and satisfying.

I was mildly disappointed after reading other reviews. The ambience was charming and the food very good but not exceptionally better than other bistros in DC. The service was somewhat perfunctory, and I was concerned that it was because we had an early reservation and chose from the relatively inexpensive 3 course menu. I asked for the wine list to be brought back to the table early in the meal, but that did not happen until I reminded a different server as the entree arrived. I had considered ordering a bottle, but ended up with so-so glasses from the by-the-glass selection. All in all, pleasant but not great, and a long drive from the city.

The service, as well as the food, was excellent. The atmosphere was very friendly and inviting, although not loud. The staff made us feel very comfortable and welcome. The Bistro L'Hermitage has become one of our favorite restaurants to go to not only in the Woodbridge, but also in the Northern Virginia / DC area.

best duck breast ever - other people said food was amazing (trout and salmon). Staff is top notch. Lovely place and cozy/quiet.
ONLY CONS (very minor): Bloody Mary: really sub par - perhaps if I had asked for spicy, it would have made a difference (doubt it). Peach cobbler had nice pieces of fruit but topping was dry and weak in taste - being from the South, you expect cobbler to fuse fruit and rich biscuit- based topping into a diet killing gooey heaven - this peach cobbler was forgettable.

The four of us have been here before and absolutely love this restaurant. My husband had a steak and it was done to perfection, warm red center. I had the fish special which was halibut and shrimp, the sauce was wonderful. The waiter recommended a nice Pinot noir for us, great selection of wines. It was a celebration for my husbands birthday, they brought him a triple flavored sorbet that was delicious. The peach cobbler was tasty as well. We had a relaxing dinner and everyone enjoyed every bite! The restaurant is on the pricey side but well worth it, you get what you pay for. As always the service was exceptional.

I have been to the Bistro multiple times and always had a wonderful meal with great service. Unfortunately this visit did not meet the standard of service and quality I have been use to experiencing at the Bistro. I was there with 4 friends celebrating 2 birthdays. We were excited and looking forward to a leisurely meal. Two of us ordered the NY Strip. The meat was so dry you could hardly eat it with out your mouth drying out. The other meals were ok but lacked flavor. I was disappointed with this visit but will try the Bistro again in hopes this was a fluke/off day.

We have been here several times and the food and service is always wonderful. It's not cheap but the prices are reasonable for the type of restaurant and the food they serve. Three of had the filets and the were done to order and very tender. They came with potatoes and asparagus. At a steakhouse for that price you'd only get the steak. Great place for a special occasion or just a nice dinner out.
