Bibiana Ratings and Reviews
We went for restaurant week 2017 and the meal was excellent. The decor was a little modern and cliche for me but the service was great and so was the food. Burrata and meatball appetizers hit the spot. Bucatini pasta was a fun dish and surprisingly tasty. For dessert the hazelnut bar and the olive oil cake were delicious. Great wine selection too.
I had not dined here in a few years (not because I didn't like it), and I decided to return during Summer Restaurant Week and see if it was as good as I remembered. It was! I had the pasta with octopus and my husband had the short ribs. Both were delicious!! The service was flawless and the complimentary basket of warm bread also was a winner.
I've heard some people say that the prices here are too high and the portion sizes are too small. My husband and I were hungry when we arrived and were full after appetizer, entree, dessert. Maybe the bread helped, but we're not "light eaters."
In short, while this place is not "cheap", the food was delicious and the service was great. I won't let so much time pass before my next visit. Please go!!!
Excited to return to Bibiana last week for Restaurant Week. It wasn't as good as I remembered. Got the mackerel crudo, which wasn't the absolute freshest, and was over salted. For an entree, I ordered the stuffed calamari, which was SO salty. Maybe the chef was in love! The baba' wasn't bad but I'm not in a rush to return to Bibiana anytime soon.
Got together with friends for Restaurant Week and it was great. I wish the drinks were a little cheaper but overall we had a great time. The food from the appetizer to the dessert was excellent and nicely flavored. Would recommend this to anyone by the Metro Center area.
OK level Restaurant week's lunch. We had joined lunch for the restaurant week. I had burrata as first course, and fish as second, then the chocolate cake as the dessert. The burrata cheese is good, smooth and creamy. The fish dish is little bit lack of character. First, the fish is plain, no taste of fish. Second the pickled eggplant has too much sour taste that overpowered the rest of the food. I like the gelato that comes with the chocolate cake, it is smooth, and has nice caramel flavor. I am not sure if I would go for it again.....
Came here for a company dinner with our staff and a potential business contact. Our large party was accommodated well and received its own section of the restaurant removing us from noise on the other side where regular patrons sat. The food was excellent, and the manager and waiter both did their best to make sure everyone in my party was happy.
Definitely a place I would recommend to others.
Bibiana is easily the best Italian restaurant around Metro Center and, arguably, in all of DC. There is a wonderful wine selection, largely Italian, both by the bottle, and, in many cases, by three other sizings as well. The menu consists of some of the usual suspects, but many unanticipated offerings as well.
one of the most underrated restaurants in the district. Gets virtually no mention in the dining column but the food is really, really good and the wine list is very broad with a lot of reasonable bottles. The service is also quietly efficient and extremely helpful.
Bibiana's is the most outstanding restaurant that we have been to in a very long while. Staff was extremely attentive, & accommodating. We were celebrating a family birthday, they allowed us to stay as long as we liked. I would highly recommend this restaurant & plan to go again myself.
Absolutely love this restaurant.
I'm a regular here, which, given the superb food, service, and wine list isn't a surprise. Bibiana is easily the best Italian restaurant in the Metro Center area, as wise a choice for a meal with a business colleague or two as with a new or steady date. The three size selections for many unique wines are another reason to dine here, as is the wonderful focaccia.
Rather late commenting on this meal we shared with out-of-town family members with discerning palates. We chose Bibiana to show off DC to them and we were not disappointed -- everything was perfect. With each visit, the food just keeps getting better and better -- more subtle and better control of flavor combinations -- creative without straying far from an Italian palate. They handled the opening and decanting of a 22-year-old Brunello with a decaying cork very expertly. Superb, attentive, but discreet service throughout the three-hour meal. Just a completely satisfying dining experience.
John French is a master Sommelia and the wine list is outstanding. The Borrollo was exquisite and the pairing with the short rib that fell off the fork was outstanding. The Brussels sprouts could have been a great meal all by themselves, and the pairing of chili spice and sweet was very unique. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the D.C. Area.
Food was decent. Less than ideal service. Had to ask multiple times for bread. The wine was delivered after we finished the meal. We were offered a free desert for the late wine delivery. Portions were small and overpriced. Return to DC a few times a year, this place won't be on our radar in the future.
