Bidwells is just minutes from the Hampton Inn, which makes the Hampton Inn worth staying in. I arrived late after flying all day, and immediately felt very welcome. I am dairy and gluten intolerant, and there were a lot of menu choices available to me....More

I needed a spot for a business lunch near Gallaudet U. Bidwell hit the spot. The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. No doubt this place and Union Market are a very welcome addition to the area. A very good choice.

Love the location in Union Market. We've gone there on several occasions for Sunday brunch/lunch with the family. Its great because when our teenage daughter gets bored with us see can go walk around the market and everyone is happy again.

When my group went there, I made a reservation. They serve wine, and also permit wine to be brought in for a corkage fee.
