We got a gift certificate for this place and I was very pleased with everything about it. All food was very well presented and there is plenty of it. Ambiance is great, staff was very friendly and took very good care of us. I would certainly eat here again.

I would have given the food a 5 star rating except my steak was tough. Tasty, but tough.

This has been our favorite restaurant for years. We’ve moved to Virginia, but every time we come back for a visit, we make sure to reserve at least one night at the Bistro. The food and service is always top notch. I would give 6 stars if I could.

We absolutely LOVE this restaurant. Martine is an excellent and creative chef. His dishes are always inventive and we enjoy discovering what new special he has running. The gorgeous original artwork and the lovely decor and coloring just enhances the dining experience. Steve, the co-owner, always greets each guest like an old friend. He is organized and on top of everything, and yet has time to sit down and share a glass of wine with you. The service is great -- they pay attention to you but don't hover! Overall, the entire experience is always wonderful and relaxing. We always walk out saying "We REALLY ought to eat here more often!"

Loved everything about it. Fun to see Arlington’s small town historic downtown. Then San Martin was a delightful surprise in every way. Early reservations are wise. We sat by the open kitchen & food service area. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the food presentations on each dinners plate. Food delish, serve engaging & professional. A sweet spot. We will be returning soon.

The food was absolutely amazing. I was beyond stuffed but couldn't pass up dessert! I tried 3 new things but the chocolate with Cayenne pepper was unbelievably good! The poached pear salad was unlike anything I've ever had and left we wanting more!

Our first time. There were problems with the reservation, but the Bistro managed to get us in at a later time. The dinner was marvelous - ALL was marvelous except for the party of eight that thought they were the only ones in the restaurant. Nevertheless, I’ll definitely go again!

The only "bad time" of the Bistro is when you choose to go elsewhere. The experience is very personal with each party who enters. The Bistro team caters to ensure each customer is comfortable. No loudness, no drafts, seating is available for a party of two or for private functions. A five-star establishment all the way.

Went in for a nice date night and what a wonderful evening it was! The food is always amazing and I love that they have an ever changing menu. Though I hope they never get rid of the deep fried prawn appetizer with the strawberry sauce, our absolute favorite thing on the menu. For our entrees, I had the pan seared jumbo sea scallops, which were THE MOST tender scallops I've ever had in my life, just melted in my mouth. My husband had the lobster tail and flat iron steak, which was also perfection. Can't wait to see what they have next time!

It was so nice to go to a nicer restaurant without having to go to a major city. Just wish there had been a little music playing in the background to enhance the ambiance. But overall, this was a nice experience.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to your restaurant. My husband had the Roasted Duck and it was excellent. I had the New York steak and it was so flavorful and tender. The dessert was to die for. It was a chocolate concoction with a dash of cognac. I will look forward to returning for another feast of flavor.
