We discovered this place back when it was impossible to get into Marvin which is just around the corner on 14th Street.
What a gem!
I'm a creature of habit, and I tend to rate French restaurants based upon their steak frites. Bistro La Bonne does a fine job with this dish. The fries are particularly well executed.
Friends of mine usually order one version of the many moules frites. Personally, I don't touch them due to an allergy, but they smell really good.
One thing I love about this place is that you can usually get in, even if you procrastinate on a Friday night the way we do.
I am rating the outdoor seating as "poor" simply because the patio faces U Street and the human and car traffic is very loud on U Street on weekends. Week nights it is much better.
Go check it out. I am a fan.
