The food was mediocre at best. We received no receipt, and when requested, they refused to provide one. The prices that we paid were far greater than the prices listed, and when we asked for a reason, they again refused to provide one.

Our onion and vegetable soups made from dish water. No taste! Niçoise salad made by an amateur and overpriced. Staff has no clue about customer service and operate at a snails pace. All in all, food is crappy and the place should be shut down or else new chefs.

Came here for Restaurant week deals and I was not disappointed. We had a three course meal choices to choose from. I chose a salad, lamb chops and ice cream for dessert. The dessert came with sparkling wine. The restaurant had special drink choices to go along with the food. Mostly, they were Martinis and were for an extra charge.... More

We shared a salad and a pizza but their menu is filled with a great variety...we were just too tired. Full bar. Service great. Clean and cozy.

Stopped here for brunch last Sunday. Instead of getting the buffet (looked good but wasn't that hungry) we ordered off the menu. I ordered the quiche Lorraine. It was amazing, the crust was on the outside rather than on the bottom. Topped with a delicious hollandaise sauce which really made it extra delicious. I would recommend this for brunch. Mimosa...

It was a really bad experience. The chef doesn't know anything about french cuisine. Duck a l'orange really overcooked, almost burnt. Couscous with an acid taste. Clearly many days on the fridge. I had ti change the wine since it was bad Not a good place to ago et all. Chef serves food on bad conditions

Dropped in late for a quick dinner on a quiet Friday night. Ordered the Chicken (Poulet) Francais, a nice portion with a tasty sauce. Chicken was cooked but had a tough texture to it. But the sauce was the game saver. Comes with cooked carrots and something that I thought was thinly sliced potatoes but didn't taste like potatoes and... More

Bistro Bistro is located on Connecticut Avenue near Florida Avenue. It is a nice spot for lunch because the place is not busy, unlike dinner. I was here a few times before and went back this time while in the area. I like the sandwiches and the pasta dishes. I love pasta dishes here because they look like "Italian" dishes... More

I went to Bistro Bistro for the first time. I ordered Mussels and they were full of sand. I complained, indicating that there was lots of sand in the mussels and that I could not eat them. I ate only a couple and returned the plate. I asked for no other dish as I had had an appetizer and my... More

Great mussels! The bistro mussels were delish. The owner brought complimentary Pernod mussels for us to that we're very good as well. Atmosphere is a busted in bistro. Very attentive service, so much so I was not sure who our waiter was as we were attended by 4 different people. Many choices in this area of DC go and try... More
