The chef really needs to see what a Prime Rib looks like. This resembled something that was run over by a logging truck. Tasty but thin and lots and lots of fat. It may be on the Prime Rib just don't serve it to the customer that way. Greek pasta very good but was not served with "crostini... read more

We ate here on a Friday night...very popular restaurant, lots of local folks. I had the burger with balsamic sauce, my husband had the vegetarian pasta. Both were excellent..one of the best burgers I've ever had. We returned on Saturday night and were both disappointed. The Mahi Mahi special was overcooked and way too salty, as were the mashed potatoes.... More

My wife and I were finally able to have a date night. Life can be so busy, but we were fortunate to get away. I have a friend that is a waitress here and I was supposed to go here about a year ago for a Christmas party. The Salmon sounded awesome and I have wanted to have it for... More

What a great fine dining experience. The pork chop was delicious and the salmon was great. Our server was excellent. We would definitely eat there again.

We ate there two weeks ago with a group of family & friends. I had the prime rib and my wife had the pork chop. As usual it was very good. We eat here every few months, some times more often. We like to go to hear the small bands or piano player they hire on various nights. The restaurant... More

Looked like the best place in Washington, most seemed like greasy dives. Very nice atmosphere. Got a Greek Salad that was the farthest thing from what I know as a Greek Salad I have ever had. It was spinach ,very little feta, only a couple of olives and the dressing was way to sharp with red wine vinegar. Rest of... More

Had a fantastic dinner at The Bank Bistro & Bar. Reservations are definitely needed as the place was packed! Service was excellent and the menu was perfect. Our meal was delicious and the portions were just right. Will definitely dine there again.

Washington is for fortunate to have such a terrific restaurant. The atmosphere is interesting and delightful. The new carpet has toned down the noise level and makes it a great place to take out of town guests or meet local friends. The bread is the best of any place I have eaten. The menu offers a full variety but is... More
