Great French Bistro food in a unique atmosphere. I came here for lunch on a Weds and apart from a few large groups it was not too crowded. A French friend came here and found the food not authentically French but a close, Americanized approximation, which I think is accurate. If you are not French you may not notice the... More

We met a friend at Bistro Du Coin for dinner on a Thursday night in Washington. It was buzzing and had a really good vibe. I'm not a French cuisine enthusiast, but the food was really lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Two stars for the food. Had Mireille for our server. When we get to the table there was a bottle of water on it. I asked if it was fizzy or flat, The waitress said flat, do you want flat? Yes I wanted flat. She opens up the bottle pours it into the two water glasses that were on the... More

We just ate a few small plates with our group of 4. It was a convenient location near the family apartment. Wine was very nice although we were not familiar with the labels. Service was excellent. Cocktails were generous. Price was reasonable. Nice experience!

There may be better French cuisine somewhere and it can get a bit noisy on a crowded night, but after years of going to Bistrot Du Coin I realize it is one of my favorites, anywhere. It has a slightly worn, Parisian side-street feel that is authentic and fun. The food is consistently good and sometimes really great. Fresh French... More

Well located restaurant, although difficult to park close. The decoration has an european taste which gives you the impression of being in a totally different place when you get in. The staff welcomes you with a a smile and the service is fast enough. I had a delicious monk fish served with a mushroom risotto.

There is a wide variety of Belgian and French fare on the menu. But from my point of view it is all about the mussels. They have a wide variety of preparations from traditional to more exotic. Usually a crowd but always manage to find a seat. It's a bit loud but hey it's a bistro.

Salad was fabulous, steak delicious. The service was very slow and hard to get help. The bread was ok.

Bistrot du Coin opened its doors on Memorial Day of 2000 by Yannis Felix and Michel Verdon. The motto is French, Fun and Friendly, this is our guideline to bring you the best experience ever at Bistrot Du Coin. The word Bistrot is defined in French as a neighborhood restaurant where you can eat good food at a fair price. The typical color of a French Bistrot is pale yellow to brown (otherwise known as Bistre) because the walls used to get dirty quickly from nicotine. Bistrot Du Coin is also known for its parties, three times a year to celebrate famous French events such as Bastille day on July 14th, The Beaujolais Nouveau on the third thursday of November or The New Year's Eve.
