Foursquare Tips

  • A good onion soup is hard to findbut not if youre eating here. What to get: Endive salad with blue cheese; steamed mussels in saffron broth; steak frites; steak tartare; apple tart with Calvados.
  • At lunch, order the salmon. Great portion size and the merging of the apple with the fish is super flavorful. Tasty!
  • When Congress is in session, Bistro Bis is the unofficial lunchroom for many members. The onion soup is a crowd pleaser as is the crisp braised pork belly with butter beans. -- Green Guide Editor
  • get the side of gruyere mac and cheese.
  • Steak tartare
  • Sausage sandwich (saucisson merguez) is one of the best lunch dishes in the area
  • They have free parking after 5:30
  • Mac n cheese is sooo yummy!
  • Amazing staff. Stayed at Hotel George and their service was poor but the restaurant staff goes above and beyond. Very sweet employees.
  • Tasty duck, inconsistent service.
  • While the food was good. I didn't get the correct order, the bartenders. R wonderful the wait staff pass the buck and can be short with patrons, and they don't know the menu, $70 meal and not worth it
  • Such great food!
  • The BEST bowl of French Onion Soup you will ever have. Guarantee it!
  • must have the Pomme Frites! And the only place that has the BEST SATURDAY AND SUNDAY BRUNCH!!!!!!
  • Try the Frisee with Lardons, and the Braised Rabbit.
  • As others have highlighted, the onion soup is fantastic.
  • They block the wifi in the hotel bar, which makes having a drink while you catch up on work difficult.
  • Probably has the best burger in DC but you can only get it at the bar. Also if Memo is working the bar ask him to make you a Mai Tai. :-) It's not on the menu but he makes a great one.
  • Loup de mer is exquisite. Very friendly service by Norman.
  • Get the scallops as an appetizer!! The creamy polenta that comes with the Icelandic Cod is AWESOME!! You won't be disappointed!
