"We've been going to this restaurant for years. The place is charming and the food is always good. I've been to Bistrot Royal for lunch and for dinner. This time, we went for restaurant week. It was one of the best meals we've had there! We had been to Bistrot Royal for New Years Eve and I was a little bit disappointed (I think they couldn't handle the large crowd). For people who are unaware of the restaurant's history, they used to be Bastille. When they opened a new "Bastille" near the Braddock Road Metro Station, they renamed the old restaurant, Bistrot Royal. Although Bastille is quite good, we prefer Bistrot Royal; mostly for its charm and more of a "neighborhood feel.""

"a wonderful French bistro with fantastic escargot, french onion soup and fois gras to start with. The trout entree was perfectly cooked with a lemon caper sauce over roasted vegetables. Overall this is a delightful find"

"What a lovely, romantic evening we had here the other night! It happens to be restaurant week (which, in my experience, can be a hit or miss experience), but it was a quaint and quite night and our menu was lengthy, with wonderful options. The salmon was very good, especially the delicious mushroom risotto along with it, and the coq au vin was excellent. My fois grois was heavenly... the buttered toast points with it were PERFECTION. There is a supplemental fee for some dishes, but I feel the bliss I found myself in with the fois grois was worth the extra $5. Our service was friendly and dishes were served at a leisurely, appropriate pace, something I do appreciate. I hope to get back here soon! Merci!"

"A group of us met at Bistro Royal for lunch. Love the new banquette seating and new bistro napkins with the red stripe. Dining room was full for lunch because BR was offering their $22 3-course Restaurant Week special for the entire month of January. Several of us selected that special eventhough we weren't initially planning to eat so much. Escargot and wild mushroom appetizer, flat iron steak with salad and frites, and a chocolate pecan tart with caramel sauce made for a very special lunch at a more than reasonable price. Service was, as always, very good. Many of the wait staff have been with BR from when it was Bastille (now at a new location). I prefer the atmosphere at Restaurant Bistro."

"We were looking for a casual, urbane place to celebrate a birthday dinner, and Bistrot Royal was a perfect fit. The food and service were both very good, as well, and the Restaurant Week prix fixes was the icing on the cake."

"The restaurant offers a nice atmosphere although a little noisy due to the tables being close together. Not the broadest of menus but what it lacks in choice it makes up for in quality; all the food was well prepared and presented perfectly and the restaurant week offer is good value. The service was good but not helped by the close tables (waiter had to push past our seats to serve adjacent customers) and perhaps some of the waiters should consider dropping the French arrogance over wine choices..........Although slightly out of the Old Town central district, this restaurant is worth the short drive up Royal to enjoy the cuisine which is, arguably, the best value French food in the area."
