Excellent food. Nice ambience. Portions a bit on the small side relative to cost, but overall good experience. Would go back.
Very enjoyable and delicious dishes. Everyone was very pleased.
Nice lunch place. Spilt Caesar salad and clams pasta dishes. Both delicious but pasta portion too small for the price. Class ambiance with taste of Italy. Quiet enough to hear each other.
We went for a family weekend in D.C. was convenient to walk to from J.W.Marriott. Server was great and knowledgeable of the menu. He did good job with recommendations, and checking in with us throughout the meal. Food was delicious and portion inside was good. It was great experience and would dine here again.
Outstanding service by our waiter! Great Italian, nice vibe.
One of the most beautiful platings and flavor pairings I have ever had is the parsnip soup. Absolutely wonderful. Definitely Michelin, if you care, execution.
Not my first visit. Food for all four of us was delicious, and the service was impeccable, without being fawning. One of my best dining experiences in some time.
Portions are minuscule
Incredible food. The combination of flavors in the pastas were excellent.
The food at Bibiana never disappoints. Each dish was perfectly prepared and our server was excellent. some of our guests felt the portions were on the small side. The noise level on this visit was uncomfortably loud with a large party nearby but otherwise a lovely meal.
A complete delight - the equal to any fine restaurant in D.C. A compact but worthy wine list, with fair prices. The pasta dishes were perfectly cooked, and even the sides enriched the moment. The lamb was perfectly cooked, with delightful "jus". We finished with a three-part flight of amari that softened the afternoon, and the bombolini were precisely sugared. Sweet all around.
I always love coming to Bibiana and this time was no exception. The service was particularly friendly, welcoming and attentive (it always is, but this time was even more noteworthy) and the food was delicious. While Bibiana is a little pricey, the quality of the food is high. I look forward to my next visit!
Our waiter was friendly and offered good advice about our menu choices. He was attentive, but allowed our party to enjoy each other’s company without constantly being in the way. The food was excellent, and portion sizes were just right. I had the Italian 75 to drink, which they kindly swapped out gin for vodka, the tagliatelle and tiramisu. All the meals and desserts looked and tasted amazing and our group enjoyed ourselves.
I dined on weekend evening. We ordered a bottle of wine. Wine came out right away along with 2 dishes of appetizers within about 6 mins. We were happy that the wine came out so quickly, but the appetizer dishes were cold. Then same thing with entree pastas. We were extremely disappointed. I am not sure if the kitchen prepares the food in advance but the temperature served was not right. When we asked our server to heat the pasta, he did not seem happy and said there is no way to do that. However, a manager walked by and accommodated us with new hot pastas. For the value, it's not worth it. It's a beautiful place but will probably not go back.
I often have business lunches here. Its usually quiet, solid service and food. No different this trip. Some of the service was a little rough - the maitre d' was fussing in the coat closet when I arrived and I had to wait, for example. My parsnip soup was really nice, interesting garnishes. My main dish of pistachio crusted swordfish was really good, perfectly cooked. Around $100 for two people (2 apps and 2 main dishes).
Great service, excellent bass, nice range of wines.
Beautiful place, friendly staff, great wine list, and truly outstanding homemade pasta
Authentic, delicious, and beautiful Italian food with a modern twist. Outstanding service and gorgeous interiors.
Bibiana has wonderful food. Unfortunately our service was very poor. One of us in a part of 4 had an allergy tomotoes. Originally the server informed us on behalf of the chef that nothing could be done to adapt any of the menu items. This was very disappointing to hear at a high end restaurant. After I complained, finally the manager got involved and they managed to find one dish they could change. Very disappointed in the response to a food allergy.
Great service, good food.
Service was awful. The waitress was rude and a smart-alecky having a remark after every comment to EVERYONE at the table. Food was good but will never go back.
Delicious homemade pasta, excellent service, strrugled to find something on the menu I wanted, but the food was good
Every single bite was amazing, service was detailed and not overbearing. Highly recommend.
I selected Bibiana as the pasta carb load dinner the night before the Rock and Roll DC Marathon. The service was terrific and super efficient, the food was excellent - although the portions are small; this gave us room for an amazing dessert. If you want excellent food at a great price with excellent service, Bibiana is a great choice.
I reserved Bibianas for a business dinner with 4 board members as we were attending a conference and this was very close to our hotel. I loved the cozy, warm, dark environment.. no loud music no crazy menus just pure delicious food and drink. We asked for specials but were told “everything is special here! The chef is amazing!” Most of my party was reluctant and disbelieving but after the appetizers of Fritto misto, pollpetta de nonna, and antipasti they were coming around to the price tag attached to these fabulous items! Entrees included the tenderloin, beef short ribs, gnocchi, venison and swordfish. All meals were shared and exclaimed upon! These meals were truly special.
I thought that the food was very good to excellent. The wine list was very expensive, though!
I liked that my colleagues and I didn’t have to shout to be heard.
One complaint- our server asked if we had valet parked and collected the tickets from those of us who had. When he brought the tickets back, they had a paper stapled to them which we thought meant that our tickets had been validated. It was only the following day when I scrutinized the bill more closely (I’m the one who picked up the tab for the dinner) that I saw they had simply added the valet parking cost to the dinner bill! I guess it’s my fault for not looking more closely when I handed over my credit card, but I don’t think that most people expect to pick up the parking cost for others that they invite to dinner.
Too loud. Needs more vegetarian options. Service a bit uneven. But tasty. Overall fine
Outstanding service and fantastic meal! Truly impressed. Don’t miss the gnocchi — top notch. Waitstaff went above and beyond. Highly recommend!
Crudo and burrata, swordfish, Tagliatelle....highly recommended. Finest italian wine list
Great food and wine and even better service. We did the fixed price menu and all the four courses were very good. Was actually way too much food so we took half of it home for another meal. We could have split one serving and would have been fine.
First, the food was excellent - absolutely wonderful. However, our server/service was very poor. There were so many gaffes throughout the evening. I am unsure if the gaffes were because he was in experienced (incompetent) or just plan uninterested in providing good service. As an example, one member in our party saw a sparkling red drink served to a neighboring table. She asked "is that a sparkling rose'. The waiter said it was and she ordered it. When it arrived, I tasted it and determined it was a campari/prosecco mixed drink - not a sparkling rose'. (It was a Prosecco Negroni) From start to finish, the waiter was unable to deliver our starting drinks accurately (red/white wine orders) nor our final checks. In fact, it took three tries to get our checks correct... Too bad...as it took away from wonderfully prepared food in my favorite Northern Italian style!
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner Saturday evening. Food presentation was delightful, amount was perfect, and service was attentive. Octopus appetizer was delicious, as were the beets. We enjoyed the seafood and the pasta main dishes. Without feeling rushed, we made our 8pm curtain call. Highly recommended.
Most of the dishes were excellent. Appetizer presentation was excellent. Wife’s salad was good but not excellent. Pasta dinners were very good. Risotto was ok.
Server was good but spoke a little fast and a little had to understand.
My risotto dish said it came with truffles and he asked me if I wanted them and I said yes. The bill came with an additional $14 charge.
Really nice. Will be back
Best Valentine's Day dinner ever! I was super impressed with the ambiance, the wine list, and the special menu selection. Of all the places I've been for this holiday, this restaurant is my new favorite!
Service was superb from the door. The meal was delicious, well prepared and well presented. Drinks were fantastic; I especially appreciated the bartender who kept tweaking my wife's drink until it was to her liking. Overall great experience.
Great food. Nice ambience
Fantastic service and food -- discreet and caring service. The waiter must have overheard that it was my sister's birthday and he brought a surprise birthday cake to her . I live in NYC but I will dream about Bibiana and look forward to future trips to DC to dine there again!
