Five Stars for ambience but that is it. The standard of the cuisine was very average. Our dinner choices, Moules Normandes and Onglet À L’Échallote were very mediocre. Service was fast but food very uinspired. So much promise... so much disappointment.

Bistrot du Coin is just a five minute walk up Connecticut Avenue from Dupont Circle, and when the weather is nice (which it wasn't during my last visit) they throw open the front windows and let the fresh air in. This is a French/Belgian restaurant,...More

A comfortable country-style French restaurant known for its moules, tartines and wonderful champagne-based cocktails. Always friendly service and excellent food. Avoid Saturday evenings, when it becomes really noisy!

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.
