Another wonderful anniversary meal with great staff who’s very attentive to you throughout the meal!
Great dinner from the time we walked until we walked out the door. Food was delicious. Will definitely go back
As, usual, a superb dining experience on a special occasion. Best restaurant in the area south of the Potomac
SERVICE AND FOOD WELL DONE - MANY THANKS, WE WILL RETURN.
This place is always outstanding-they have wonderful service and always make you feel as if they want you to stay forever. The food is great.
We went on a whim with just a few hours notice on a weekday evening and the restaurant was about 1/3 to 1/2 full . Great for service and conversation. They have an early bird three course fixed price meal that is quite a bargain but we were too late for that. The prices are quite reasonable considering both quality and portion size. We were both happy with our choices and will remember to come back soon .
We received excellent service as usual and the wait staff made the occasion special by honoring my private request to provide my wife with a special desert for her birthday.
Amazing as usual our server was outstanding . Manager also on point. Everything as expected for a fine dinning place. We will be back every anniversary.
It took almost an hour between the time we ordered our food and we received it at the table. I understand that there is a certain ambiance but I was just there for dinner with my daughter and not a romantic or celebratory occasion. The service could have been better.
We’ve been dining there for 10 years. Service and food has always been outstanding! A welcoming environment and great staff!
Our anniversary is always extra special with a trip to Bistro L'Hermitage!
Excellent food, very nice place. Took my wife there for date night. A little noiser than I would have liked, otherwise it would have been 5 stars across the board.
Lobster bisque tastes good, but no lobster meat, and it was too thin.
The fish special was good.
Escargot and mussels served outside of the shell. Without the baked garlic butter sauce, nothing special.
The lamb shank special has no taste.
Overall, need more sauce for the food!
Made a reservation to celebrate boyfriends 45th birthday. 1st time here and will definitely come again. We both got the 5 course meal with wines paired to each course...The food and service was outstanding!
Elegant, superb food - lobster bisque, steak, scollops.
My wife and I have dined there many times and have always enjoyed ourselves. We have also taken my mother there many times, and they treat her like a treasured guest. Our most recent visit was on the occasion of her 85th birthday, which I had noted when making the reservation. We were seated right away at a table in the middle of the restaurant, which would have been just fine, although my mother doesn't hear well and the noise level got a bit raised by later in our meal. The owner, Mssr. Essakl, came over and gave my mother a kiss on the cheek and decided they must have a better table available for her. A party at a table nearer the wall was just leaving, so he had the staff clear that table off, put a fresh tablecloth and place settings on it, and seated us, with a complimentary glass of champagne for the three of us. The food and the service are always first-rate - if your water glass is near half-empty, expect it to be filled again without having to ask. It''s the little things that are a big deal, and they always deliver. I always appreciate it when the staff makes a fuss over my wife or my mother being there on a special occasion - anniversary, birthday, whatever. Kudos to the owner and the staff for making this a wonderful experience. We will be back.
This is our favorite restaurant in the area if not in all of Virginia. Everything is always so perfect.
I travel to Paris once a month and have eaten at wonderful and exceptional French restaurants around the world. This restaurant measures up on a equal par to all of them. With one difference. The ambience and and service is the best at Bistro L’Hermitage in all of my restaurant experiences.
Always a great experience! Food is always amazing and the staff remembers you and your likes/dislikes.
Food was excellent, atmosphere charming, service attentive, no rush to turn over, a great dining experience
This is our "special occasion" go-to restaurant. Michelin quality food, wine pairing and service, the team at Bistro always take good care of us.
Very romantic and cozy restaurant! Staff was very attentive, and polite! Food was absolutely amazing! We will definitely be back!
Great place. Dinner was delicious
The staff so professional
Great as always.
The people at the Bistro are amazing. You get the luxury treatment without the luxury price like Tyson’s. Everything was amazing.
Food was outstanding, best French Onion soup I have ever had!! Service was excellent! We will definitely return.
Superb selection and service. Menu options were also exceptional. It was our 35th wedding anniversary and I found our waiter very attentive. Atmosphere was cozy and intimate. Would unhesitatingly recommend it to friends.
This is an amazing place to eat. The service was impeccable, and the food was fantastic. We shared the muscles with tomato appetizer, excellent! One of us enjoyed the tuna and the other the lamb chops. Highly recommend this restaurant!
We shared a fantastic dinner with friends. Two of us had a chefs special of lobster tail and shrimp-crabcake.
Ambiance was delightful. Service outstanding. Food was above average - expensive.
We love this place! We come here all the time and the food is always amazing. Great service and wonder ambiance 👍
Always wonderful service and good food. Would like to see them change up the menu and wine selections and offer more specials.
For our anniversary, we experienced the 5-course chef's tasting menu. Each item was excellent and a good value.
Everything was wonderful. Our wait staff were attentive. It was a crew of people. A couple of them seemed not happy. The rest were friendly and helpful.
The food was delicious and the service was absolutely outstanding. I highly recommend Bistro L'Hermitage for special occasions. No need to drive all the way to DC - truly a hidden gem!
We really enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere Bistro L’Hermitage. So nice not having to listen to loud pounding music like so many restaurants inflict on patrons these days. I’m not sure how authenticly French the food is here but it was delicious and the presentation was mangnifique. Look forward to returning to try some of the other menu offerings.
Always outstanding! They never miss. You're treated special the moment you walk through the door.
This was my second visit to Bristo L’Hermitaged and it was absolutely as faboulous as my first visit. I highly recommend this restaurant for a exquisite dining experience.
Nice food, nice ambiance and best of all was the great service.
Dennis our waiter was amazing!
