Bistro d'OC is a casual French restaurant located in downtown DC. We serve specialties from the Languedoc region of France, as well as typical French bistro fare. We are family-owned and operated, and serve high quality food at a moderate price.

"Not the same Bistro we remember. Our waiter looked VERY young and acted VERY uncertain. He didn't know the menu very well and certainly not the French. He did double-check the order before turning it in and had it correct. A more experienced waiter would have checked whether we had theater tickets (we did) with Ford's across the street. I returned the Cosmo -- never do that, but it tasted like watered-down cranberry juice. Food was very good, although the frites were not done in the French style. House pinot noir was mediocre and the usual DC over-priced dab of red in a cheap white wine glass. We'll think twice about going back to this old standby as we wonder if it's under new, still learning, management."
