Really enjoyed this Bistro within the Ritz-Carleton. Benjamin our waiter was very accommodating and enjoyable. Food was delicious. The salmon was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. The Lamb was also well prepared and presented. Music was just the right level and did not interfere with conversation. Dessert was less fulfilling - although Bailey's Irish cream ice cream sounded great, there was little flavor to it. Great spot to go to prior to a Kennedy center performance. I will be back!
This restaurant was amazing and the staff was great. The food came out right on time and looked great. This is definitely on my list as one of my top 5 places to eat in the city.
Romantic ambiance in a quiet, lowkey setting. This restaurant is not for the faint of heart. Located inside the Ritz Carlton, Westend Bistro provides an upscale dining experience with impeccable, breathtaking dishes. It was obvious the chefs enjoy their jobs as every plate was thoughtful, beautifully crafted, and seasoned to perfection with unique tastes. I can confidently say I’ve never tasted anything quite like what I ate at Westend. Everything was so different, yet yummy. I cleaned my plate every single course. Their New Year’s Eve four course special was amazing, I felt like I was on a Food Network competition with the quality of the dishes I received. My only complaint is that I wish they offered four course specials year round like their New Year one.
My friends and I dined here for New Year’s eve and discovered it was prix fixe. The selections were great and I liked the simplicity of the menu. The food was excellent, and so was the service. We wished we were in a better location as far as seating but now I know which table to request the next time I visit!
Slightly underwhelming. Did not match the vibe and sophistication of the rest of the hotel. Food was good but could have been better for the price. However the service was excellent. All of the staff were very friendly and attentive, especially our server (I think his name was Troy)
How is it possible to botch a green salad? My starter was a handful of wilted standard greens and packaged kale with weird cream and a tasteless dressing. Just awful. My vegetarian main course of rice and cauliflower was pretty much all rice. Mushy/over cooked. Portion was tiny - more like an appetizer. If you are going to have a fancy open kitchen and the pretense of chefs the food should be better than a diner! Parking was $30. We self parked - apparently valet is validated but self park was not. No way to know that so we got stuck with that too. At the ritz, there is no excuse! Of course waiters lovely and room very nice. But food absolutely shameful.
Used to be good food. I had lunch twice over the past 2 months and both time food was poor- burger made from old, smelly meat and a sad chicken salad.
Great ambiance, attentive service, great wine selection, and fantastic food. You cannot ask for more. Highly recommend halibut and foie gras.
We had wonderful service and an excellent meal. It was not noisy and we could talk without having to yell. Very nice.
I made the OpenTable reservation for a large group that I was hosting. When I called to confirm and discuss special arrangements, the general manager handled my call, met with me prrsonally, and checked on all the arrangements. The food and service were wonderful and my guests were relaxed and happy. Though this was my first experience with Westend Bistro, Zach and his team made me feel like I was a long-time and valued customer. Thank you!
