Westend Bistro consistently delivers excellent service and great food presentation and taste! It's a delight to come to our nation's capital and know there will be a warm welcome with wonderful food.
The meal was very good, server Ben was attentive and sweet. The meal was a bit pricey and $8 tea was outrageous if it had been good but it was awful. Was too jet lagged to complain. Don’t order the tea!!
Service was very slow. Meals weren’t all hit when brought to table
Absolutely wonderful service. Food (parsnip soup, fries, grilled chicken sandwich) was great. They even packed a small bottle of ketchup in my doggie bag. I just loved this place
We would have preferred a few more menu choices. We especially miss the shrimp and grits.
Good menu in a convenient location.
Comfortable all the way around, enjoyable atmosphere. From the host to the table, great service. Great looking bar. We'll be back !
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.
On our first visit to the Ritz-Carlton, D.C., we enjoyed the prix fixe New Year's Eve menu. The meal consisted of four courses beginning with a refreshing organic winter green salad and a full-bodied roasted chestnut soup. This was followed by a perfectly seared scallop with a pear and butternut combo topped lightly with caviar. The main entrée was a delectable filet mignon and Maine lobster dish accompanied with foraged mushrooms, a bed of silky smooth heirloom fingerling mashed potatoes, and red wine jus.
For dessert, we indulged in a decadent chocolate pomegranate parfait with a chocolate sabayon drizzle melted over a white chocolate dome. Quite the presentation.
All in all, the food portions were perfect, the fare was delicious, and the service was 100%.
Kudos to both chefs Dela Cruz and Quinn and greatest of thanks to our topnotch server Dennis.
The accommodations made by all staff including the restaurant manager, Zachary were impeccable.
Thank you for a wonderful evening and making this a night to remember, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ritz and will surely be back.
