There for my 63rd B-day. Delightful and fabulous attention without being obnoxious. Around 2 hours and never hurried even after bill paid. Would only recommend well behaved/quiet children. Our res was at 530 and saw no children while we were there. Left around 745.

Charming French Country Inn feel, attentive (but not too attentive) friendly service, great, reasonably priced wine list with a number under $60, resonably priced menu and fantastic cuisine. Overall one of our favs!

This was the perfect place for my friend and I to celebrate our Birthdays. Food was amazing and service was excellent. They even provided a treat for us to celebrate. I've been here many times but it was the first time for my friend. Before we even left, she asked "when can we come back"!

Bistro L’Hermitage is a jewel. The service is impeccable and the food is delicious. I have been there for special occasions and, most recently, went there to have lunch with my daughter...also, a very special occasion.

I highly recommend the Bistro L’Hermitage. I appreciate the ambience, the service, and the food.

This is our favorite restaurant in the DC Metro area. We moved away several years ago but make the 4 hour trip each year to celebrate our anniversary with the Bistro, its wonderful food, and its outstanding staff! This year's anniversary celebration was once again the best; no other establishment can compete, in our minds, with Yousef and his team, particularly Latfi & Hassan! The food, drink, and dessert was outstanding as always and the service and attention from the entire staff was heartwarming! There is no better place in the DC area!

Caesar salad, bread, and creme brûlée were great. Our request for a quiet location was honored with quiet table in the corner.

My husband did not like his chicken entree. Was not worth the drive.

A wonderful option that is not in the city . Fun atmosphere but elegant. Center table where we were seated a bit conspicuous. Next time I would request a different table and for fewer people.

Loved it! We went for my husband's birthday and had an outstanding meal. Only bummer was that they don't offer the chef's tasting menu on Saturdays and we would have liked to try it BUT our waiter ordered for us and he was SPOT ON! We started with the escarot, crispy oysters and shared a beet salad. My husband had the lamb chops and I had the fish special - corvina and lobster tail in a beurre blanc sauce. All was amazing! The place itself is super charming and cozy and perfect for a date or special occasion. Definitely a great find for traditional French fare. Hope to go back some day!

Love Bistro L'Hermitage, but it was crowded. Recommend reservations and when you make them, ask for a more private table (like to the left of where you walk in). The food and the service are outstanding!

So often, restaurants can be noisy and difficult to have a conversation in. We never experienced that problem. Our reservation was at 5:00pm (right when they opened) and tables were already filling up (and yet, the staff made everyone feel welcomed and special). Food was great and service was exceptional. A unique dining experience in Prince William County.
