Evoking the feeling of an old bistro, yet with a contemporary twist, Bazin's on Church brings to Vienna an inviting neighborhood dining experience. Bazin's on Church offers a contemporary American menu featuring organic and seasonal ingredients. The wine bar features a collection of wonderful wines from around the world, with an emphasis on California.

"Our party of five was celebrating a retirement. We sat at a round table that was conducive to conversation. Restaurant wasn't terribly crowded which helped keep the noise levels down. As a group of 60+ individuals, it is getting difficult to hear in noisy restaurants, but this wasn't the case. Food was delicious and service was excellent. For those in/near Vienna, Bazin's is a great choice."

Tucked into a little off beat corner of Old Town Alexandria is Bastille, Chefs Christophe and Michelle Poteaux's award winning intimate bistro and wine bar. Bastille offers guests a contemporary take on classic French fare at approachable prices, set in a warm and upscale environment. <br /><br />The Poteaux's creations are sparked by traditional, yet modern interpretations of classic dishes that utilize seasonal, locally sourced and farm fresh ingredients. With an expansive wine list, unique beer selections and creative cocktails, Bastille has a little something for everyone.

"This was our second experience at Bastille on New Year's Eve. What a lovely evening! The restaurant was so cozy on a chilly winter night, the service was attentive, and the food was delicious. We were in a party of four and everyone enjoyed their selections. Since our last time there, a bar had been added; we think we will check it out the next time we dine at Bastille. There are many other restaurants in the DC area (e.g., Alexandria) who serve French cuisine, but Bastille comes the closest to replicating a French bistro experience."
