    I had attempted to eat here previously but reservations were always full. We lucked out for a table for four for Saturday evening and all were so happy as we left. The wine list is French with many well-priced offerings; the tables are well-spaced; and the food is delicious. We will return, provided we can snare another reservation!

    My poached egg was hard boiled. While the waitress did replace it she seemed annoyed. Also when I asked for cream(1/2 and 1/2) for my coffee she said that they only offer milk which in my experience is odd and disappointing.

    I can’t believe this is our first time here, but everything was phenomenal. Our server was so helpful in guiding us through the wine and food menu. This restaurant will now be a staple in our rotation. Highly recommend!

    Delicious salad & entrees. The air was a bit smoky due to the kitchen. The place is quite loud. I wish the cocktail menu was more expansive and that the bar would stock Dubonnet.

    I love Cafe Colline. Great food and excellent service. It ain't cheap, but I think its worth it. I had the snails and then the steak. I think that the steak is my favorite main course in Arlington... perfectly cooked. My companion enjoyed the beet salad starter and the Bass (Loup de Mer). She especially loved the fish. I was less impressed by the desserts. My Pot de Creme was OK... but more pudding-like, less light, and without a chocolate kick. My companion did not enjoy the ice cream. The service in Cafe Colline is excellent... the wait-staff are alert and attentive, without being intrusive. I approve of the fixed service charge, and added a little more in appreciation.

    Outstanding, as always. Service, in particular, was top notch this visit (party of 5, ages ranging from 12 to 72).
