A nice place to bring a date, parents, friends. Recommend you check the menu for the specials which vary by time (e.g., lunch, dinner) and by days. I visited 4/7 for a business lunch and had the coconut curry ginger soup. It was heavenly. Great flavor. I also had the bass sandwich lunch special with the truffle fries. Also very... More

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn down the street from Food Wine and Co and as the hotel staff recommended this place for dinner, we made reservations (via Open Table) and walked to the restaurant. Although it was mid week, the place was hopping with a short wait line, but luckily we had reservations and we were seated after... More

Each of the three of us ordered different menu items and drinks, all of which were excellent. Our server was knowledgeable about the offerings and assisted us in our choices.

The choices on the menu are great. Very interesting items and a good selection. Not too much or too little. The pizzas are outstanding.

This has been our go to restaurant when friends and family come to visit. We had family visiting this week from France and we went out to dinner to celebrate their visit. They were looking forward to enjoying a nice bottle of wine with our dinner until the server refused to serve our family as they only had their French... More

First visit: soup dropped on floor, splattered our clothes and shoes: attempt made to clean up the mess under our feet and we finally had to ask for a new table. Wait staff laughed at event but no one offered to pick up cleaning bills, or offer a free desert or drink for our unpleasant experience. After I wrote to... More

My son and I went there for lunch. I had an excellent salad. My son had a soba dish that was very good. We shared the baked brussel sprouts. The food was very good. The beer was great, as was the wine.

Food Wine & Co . is a great choice in Bethesda for happy hour cocktails and snacks at the bar ( Monday happy hour goes til 10pm) or late nt., Well prepared dinner choices include steaks, mussels, very good salads and sides. I recommend focusing on appetizers and veg sides and splurge on the wines from the extensive list.

I understand they have changed chefs recently, but Food Wine is a consistently good restaurant . I was there twice last month for lunch and it did not disappoint. you must get the soup, whether it a special or on the menu, You can add to many entrees for $4. Had both butternut squash and mushroom, and they were delicious.... More
