If I could give this place 6 stars I would! The perfect little corner bistro only about a mile from my house. Quaint and quiet place, you can park your car on the street right outside the window of the restaurant.I took my wife there for her birthday recently. The place is clean, well decorated, and the staff is really nice. Not that overbearing nice either, just the right amount of concern for you. They have quite a few fish choices, but I got the filet mignon. My wife for scallops with risotto. The food was absolutely great, one of the most well flavored/well cooked steaks that I have had in a while. Better than steaks that I have had at Ruth Chis. My wife’s risotto was great as well. Price and portions were just right.If I had one complaint it would be that there were way too many specials. When the waitress rattled them off I lost focus at about number 5. Maybe they need to pair that down a bit

First visit, but it won’t be my last. Lovely evening. Service a bit over-solicitous, presentation lovely, food delicious, but next time I will try something other than the calves liver. Everything else was superb.
Thanks for the discount, too.

reviews2Yes, K Town Bistro is as good as it gets in Kensington, where I live. The food was excellent, as was the service. The restaurant is relatively small: you won’t get lost in a sea of tables. My wife and I went for lunch: She wanted to sample appetizers and was served crispy osyters and Tuna Nicoise Salad. She had planned to order a third appetizer, but the owner (who helped wait on us) cautioned that she might feel full after eating two, which was a correct assessment–the servings are not skimpy. I had the Field Mixed Green Salad and Crab Cake sandwich. I didn’t want the French Fries, and excellent roasted vegetables were substituted. After lunch, I had coffee (which was as good as other reviews stated), and we shared a piece of exquisite cheese cake. Each of the food items was well prepared, unique, and a delight. Service was prompt and courteous. We’ll definitely return for more.

Wow! When we walked in, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. We’re a young married couple who recently moved to Kensington from downtown DC and we’re used to a slightly more boisterous atmosphere. But this quaint, cozy, quiet bistro was perfect for an intimate Sunday brunch. My husband had the French onion soup, the fried oysters, and the steak and I had the peanut soup, the beet salad, and the grilled salmon. Each course was more delicious than the last! Even the bread, fresh and hot, was perfectly complemented by soft, lemon-flavored butter. Yum! Even though we were already stuffed, we somehow made room for a slice of their heavenly carrot cake. I can’t remember the last time we ate so well! To top it all off, the staff was incredibly kind and attentive. We felt welcome from the moment we sat down and we never felt rushed. We’ll definitely be back!

Very good food and very good service.I echo the comments of another reviewer about it being OK to bring kids, especially for lunch. They even have high chairs. The fixed price dinner is a good way to go, as it can get pricey. The escargot was especially memorable – not your typical garlic butter sauce, but a cream sauce.

Went today for lunch with 2 friends–1 has been before, and I trust her taste, so was happy to join them. What a delight! White glove service @ lunch, and delicious food to match. They both had salmon cake with roasted potatoes and sauteed spinach–I tried the salmon and potatoes, and they were both yummy. I had the soup of the day–tomato basil. No cream, but it was perfect–rich, creamy, smoky–just right. I ordered the oysters (lightly friend w/cornmeal) appetizer that came w/avocado mousse and a small mixed green salad. I wasn’t sure about avocado mousse, but it a light couli, and perfect with the oysters, which I totally enjoyed. That was enough for me, as well.
We had excellent coffee served by the owner, and I wish we’d had room for the cheesecake he told us he’d just made that morning–next time!
I live in Bethesda and am so tired by the crowds, the parking hassles and the mediocre restaurants (the good ones like Raku always have a line out the door), so it was a pleasure to find such a lovely bistro (a bit off the beaten track), but worth every bite!
Purchased the Yelp Groupon-like coupon of $20 worth of food for $10, and passed it on to friends. Lousy weather today, but not enough of us for lunch, so please try it out!

K Town Bistro is a small, intimate restaurant were you can actually have a conversation with your table mates and hear one another. I have been to K Town Bistro numerous times and have never been disappointed. In fact, I recently hosted my mother’s 90th birthday party there and every single person, including the teenagers, was very pleased with their meals. The staff is always friendly, gracious, and ready to accommodate and request. There is ample free parking in the area.


My wife and I have eaten here about 10 times now for lunch and dinner and we always enjoy it. You can easily be heard above the soft music and the staff is very attentive. The food is incredible for Kensington — try the oysters and the desserts. The owner is former headwaiter at The Watergate restaurant. We highly recommend KTown Bistro.
