Whether a shopping-lunch, a dinner or Sunday brunch, the cuisine is fresh, with many ingredients sourced from local farms and is delicious. The interior of The Bistro is stylish and inviting, and the bar area is separate from the dining area. The dining area on the front has large windows affording a look outside, the interior room is a bit... More

I have celebrated many special occasions at this beautiful restaurant. I love their Beekeepers Salmon and Rich Chicken. Always consistently good, my companions have enjoyed the ribeye steaks. Paul is an excellent bartender and serves great cocktails.

Frequently visit with my wife and friends. Every time we visit the food is spectacular, the staff is friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere is relaxed yet refined. One of our favorite spots in town hands down.

The Bank is the nicest restaurant in Washington, it has a wonderful ambiance...perfect for a special night out or to saddle up to the bar for a cocktail (or two). The fried green tomatoes app is a favorite, as is the Pork Chop entree.

The new owners, Roger and Joan Meyland are bringing class dining to Washington; While Mary Carolyn and Larry Walker and Company did a fantastic job opening and running this establishment for a number of years; the sale to Joan and Roger can only improve on what was already a great and classy gastronomic extravaganza. Their cutting edge Vault Bar and... More

The service was exceptional and the food and drinks were very tasty. We had our 6-year old grandson with us and there was a kids meal for him. I had the lobster ravioli, my son Thomas had the beef short rebs and said they were fantastic. The ladies had fliet mignon and they were delicious. We also had a cheese... More

Would have to say the best and a wonderful setting in an old bank. Wine store in bank vault!! Great menu with specials. Friendly and professional staff. We shared a large porterhouse steak cooked to perfection. Great dining experience

Visited during the festival weekend. Had already eaten but wanted to check out the libations. Sat at the bar with a friendly Washingtonian and accomplished bartender. Enjoyed the drink and will return for a meal next time.
