    Best food in the Northern Virginia area by far. Fish was perfectly cooked. Filet Minion was perfect. Can't recommend this place more. We went on our anniversary and they even treated us to a special desert at the end.

    Bistro L’Hermitage never disappoint. I can’t stress this enough. Went 3 weeks ago for my little sisters birthday and yesterday for my birthday with my little sister. The waiter remembered us and took over our table. The previous server was also nice. The experience and food was everything we were expecting. As long as I live in the DMV I will always visit my favorite little French restaurant.

    We enjoyed our family Thanksgiving dinner. The ravioli was delicious! The smoked Turkey slices and stuffing meal was beautifully displayed. Excellent stuffing! Crème brûlée was quite good. The pumpkin pie was terrible! Need a much better recipe. Mom’s pies in Occoquan could maybe work with you. Service was outstanding! Thank you for making our Thanksgiving dinner a wonderful dining experience!

    The Thanksgiving dinner was three courses prix fixe with varied choices. Our first courses, salad and boundin blanc with red cabbage, were light and flavorful; second course, steak and duck confit & shrimp, were masterfully prepared with appropriate vegetables; third course, almond tart and Gâteau opéra, were delicate endings for the meal. We were satisfied and not stuffed, the sign of a properly proportioned meal. Seating was staggered to create a flow without feeling crowded. While we were advised of a two-hour dining window, we never felt rushed and leisurely enjoyed our meal. The staff was attentive and not hovering. Overall a dining experience to be repeated.

    Wonderful food. However, wait staff hovered so closely and tried to grab plates before finishing food or just as lifted last forkful. While nice to have dirty tableware removed, the way it was done felt very pushy and rushed. I did not feel like I was at leisure to enjoy my meal.

    We went for the weekend brunch and had the traditional Eggs Benedict, cappuccino, and crème brûlée for dessert. Everything was very well prepared and tasted great. Since we got there are the beginning of brunch it was not crowded, the wait staff was efficient, and we had a great time. One of our favorite places that never disappoints.
