“Easy Walking Distance from Hilton Garden Inn Shirlington”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We stopped in for kind of a late evening supper. Every restaurant on the street was busy, as was Bistro Bistro. Servicen was quite good. Food was served shortly and it was served hot. Waiter was very pleasant and accommodating. Nice place and very reasonably priced as well. Well worth trying.

“Still disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

This restaurant, which was outstanding when Mark Caraluzzi opened it years ago, has been very disappointing for the past several years. A friend and I recently ate there, hoping that it had recovered some of its past glory. Sadly, no. The meat was overcooked, dry and tough, and the vegetables were cold. Service was spotty and slow.

“GOOD RESTAURANT FOR GOOD LUNCHES”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

On a Saturday Tangazo visited Bistro Bistro with his wife and his granddaughter for a lunch. The order was an onion soup ( very well solved ) and an order of snails ( escargots ) very good in quantity and taste. For the child we ordered a kids Alfredo fettuccini very very good. As entrees the order was flounder for Tangazo, served with spinach and mashed potatoes and for his wife a grilled salmon served over spinach and creamy risotto. Both orders are excellent. With two expresso , a bottle of Ravenswood Zinfandel and an apple juice the check was of $92 in an excelent relationship price-quality.
The Marcos"s service was good and fast. Congratulations. We will return to try the sunday's brunch which has an attractive proposal
