Westend Bistro DC Ratings and Reviews
This is an amazing restaurant with great food!!!!! Raul was our waiter and his service was exsquisite!! We really enjoyed celebrating my friend's birthday and she had an amazing time that she will never forget. We will never forget our visit and look greatly to our next visit.
I had a business lunch at Westend Bistro. Food was a big disappointment, especially the salad which was soaked with an awful dressing. It ended up back in the kitchen after two bites.
The desert was the size of one bite. This place is overpriced for what you get. I will not be back.
We were celebrating a family birthday with brunch before a show at the Kennedy Center. The food was outstanding and the service was the best I've had in recent years. Our server went above and beyond to make our experience very special. I'd highly recommend going to this under-appreciated gem!
Just returned from having a very nice 27th Anniversary at West End Bistro.(Washington D.C.) Very nice interior. A perfect place for any occasion. From our Waiter Ben to Chef Yolanda and the kitchen staff and the waiter staff made this day all the more "SPECIAL". Our order from the appetizers of Pea Soup and The Burrata were fantastic. Our dinner choices were Lobster Gnocchi and the aged Ribeye was absolutely cooked to PERFECTION. I can't Thank the Staff and the West End Bistro Staff for their professionalism and most friendly staff I have ever encounter. We have traveled from California and will never forget our wonderful experience at West End Bistro. Congratulations West End Bistro. I highly recommend this place to everyone.
The only positive experience - our server was really nice, informative, and pleasant. In fact all those who were serving food and taking care of guests that night were very helpful and attentive. Hostess on the other hand was a total disgrace; see my reasoning below.
My wife and I went to celebrate the Valentines Day. I asked the hostess if we could grab one of the booths, but she flat out refused saying they are not available. Seemed a little rude considering three of them were empty, and staring back at me. Not only that, throughout the night, seemingly random people occupied those and other booths in the dining room. Plus there was no option to reserve a booth, so in my opinion if they are empty, they are available. Anyway, it was the way she turned down my request that didn't sit well with me. Meal options were from a prefix menu that consisted of below average beat salad, luke warm butternut squash soup, a plate of mini appetizers to share, bland duck with figs and sauce I couldn't make sense of. Saving grace at the end was chocolate decadence buffet that had some good offerings - hence 3 stars; would've been one otherwise. Ended up shelling $260 for this! Completely ruined what was supposed to be a romantic experience. Ambiance too was below average.
I will never visit this restaurant again.
Lunch for two professional colleagues. We both ordered the Kale salad and added salmon to it. The salad was a good size for an entree salad and the piece of salmon was sizeable and cooked to perfection. And the bread was delicious. and the wait staff was professional and efficient. Definitely recommend.
We were in WDC for the Women's March and, the night before, wanted an easy, convenient choice and a restaurant to relax and get ready for the big event. We were so lucky to have booked the West End Bistro -- a 2 minute walk from our hotel. Lovely, friendly, wonderful food. We thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered.
Would/will return next time I'm in the neighborhood!
We made a reservation for this past Monday Jan 2 and when we got there, they were closed. They never opened. They failed to block their open table system. We called to let them know this and it took them 3 days to get back to us. Not great customer service. Normally good but not this time.
I like to go to this restaurant when I want to have a serious discussion with my guest. The waiter was a little rushed, but the hostess was totally charming and welcoming. The food was good but not as good as it was expensive. Nevertheless, I'd go again for the ambiance.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Westend Bistro and could not have been happier. From the warm greeting upon entering to the complimentary glasses of Prosecco to the incredible service from our waiter Benyimin to the fantastic meal and great drinks to the complimentary dessert with happy anniversary written on the plate the experience was truly wonderful. We were very pleased and grateful for such a nice evening.
Pathetic and Pedestrian
When WEB first opened, it actually was a destination restaurant with a great chef and good food. Now with its "new chef," the transformation to a "white-bread", boring, unchallenging, pedestrian HOTEL restaurant is complete. We live in "the hood," and would eat here frequently, but after dinner this weekend, our visits only will be when we are desperate. Anything interesting or different -- such as the char with a great braised endive side, or the lamb shank -- are gone, leaving mediocre and everyday salmon and lamb chops in their place. Also the starters are few, strange, and overpriced, and over-seasoned mussels which were a starter now are an entrée. Very mixed up. Dine here only if you must, but calling one of our many home delivery food services will probably serve you better and be better value for the $$s. There is now no mistake that this is just another run-of-the-mill HOTEL restaurant
The customer service at this Ritz restaurant was excellent, and we dined here for a business lunch on a nearly empty Tuesday afternoon. I started with the corn soup appetizer, which was beautiful, and tasted wonderfully with the "caviar". Sadly, it was about the amount of a cup of soup, not a bowl. My next course was the mussels, which were a tiny bit undercooked, but edible. My companions meals looked better than mine - the shrimp appetizer, more corn soup, a kale salad with shrimp, and fish. My colleagues were very happy with the taste of their meals, but for $158 for lunch for three (and we only drank water), we all left a little bit hungry still. I won't dine here again simply due to the tiny portion sizes.
Our party of four absolutely loved our dinner here. The only problem was the frigid temp in the dining room which the staff tried hard to adjust. Otherwise the food was really beautifully done with great flavors and combinations. Our waiter was attentive and very helpful as were the junior wait staff. All in all a very enjoyable experience and we will be back.
