Kind of a surprise to have a restaurant like this in such small town America, Special occasions for us, too pricey for everyday but worth it when the time calls for it.

The Bistro is a must experience, bucket list type of dining. I want to be eating the strawberry prawns or the flat iron steak with Martin's sauces in the moment before I die! This fine, intimate restaurant is the jewel of little Arlington and worth every dollar spent.

This is superb dining at it's best. The Bistro rivals many of the best restaurants found in Seattle...in Arlington! Not cheap but by far worth the extra $ for quality and taste. Atmosphere is awesome!

This restaurant only gets better. We come here every time we are in Washington. The owners are always ready for a challenge. We have requested some special meals and they have always come through. The place is a must.

Been to the Bistro a number of times and have never had a bad meal. Great wine selection to pair with any of the fine dishes served. Reservations a must. Excellent choice for a special night out, and watch for the wine pairing meals with local wineries, Awesome.
