Reviewed 16 August 2014

Have been there several times and the food and selection have always been terrific. The service has always been very professional. Decent wine list and great atmosphere. Not inexpensive but worth every penny.

“Superb Surprise!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

After a walk through historic Occoquan 4 of us decided to find a place for a late lunch on a recent Sunday. A quick review of local restaurants on TripAdvisor led us to Bistro L'Hermitage.
What a wonderful surprise to find a 5 star restaurant so nearby. From the warm and friendly greeting to the beautifully set table to the gracious and efficient wait staff to the superb food, we were just so pleased with everything. The décor is welcoming and cozy. The chef de cuisine really knows what she is doing in the kitchen - the most tender and flavorful hanger steak we have ever had. This was an all around great experience. We can't wait to go back and try dinner!

“Gourmet delight”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

What a surprise! Who'd a thunk such a gourmand's dream come true would be on a back street in Occoquan. It is pricey, but you are getting really good food. And it does lack romantic ambiance...It is crowded and filled with happily chomping and talking customers.

“FIRST CLASS RESTAURANT IN ALL RESPECTS”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

So glad we found this gem tucked away in Woodbridge. We ate there on Saturday 12 July 2014. The welcome at the door set a trend for the evening, We were shown to our table offered water and or drinks, followed by menus and a wine list. Without prompting wonderful bread arrived and our server Bryan provided us with details of the specials and left us to choose our food and wine. My wife chose green salad to start followed by Skate (the special) and I chose the Seafood soup and Skate (both specials). We chose a wine to compliment our meal. Bryan returned to tell us this was no longer available but suggested an alternative which we accepted. However before bring a bottle he offered a sample to ensure we were happy. A great thing to do which we appreciated. The alternative wine was perfect. The food was first class and our server really looked after us. We plan to make this a regular place to eat. Thanks Bryan and the staff you gave my wife and I a meal and evening to remember.

“4th of July Celebration”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Son & daughter in law and our grandchild surprised us with dinner out on the 4th of July to a wonderful French Bistro. A bit pricey and really not for kids, however the atmosphere, service, and most importantly the food was outstanding. We had the crispy oyster and avocado mousse to start that was very tasty. I truly enjoyed one of the daily specials - corvina and scallops with mash potatoes and asparagus, my wife enjoyed their regular seared scallops. I also had a side of sautéed mushrooms and garlic that was exquisite. Nice wine selection with great service - definitely a place for romance.
