We were the last table of the evening and received excellent service. Food was amazing and large servings! But you must save room for dessert! I had a chocolate mousse, creme brule, bannas fosters trio it was heavenly! We each ordered something different and were all pleased.

We had such a delightful lunch. Everything was wonderful. The place is charming. The food is divine and the service impeccable. I already started telling all my friends how we must come back. Now K Towne Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants in the D.C. Area! Don't miss it.

Why didn't I know about this place until tonight? I'm home and hungry, looking for something different. I got a $15 off Ubereats coupon, and checked it out. I went face down in the red beet salad with goat cheese and candied pecans. The Ahi Tuna appetizer was not what I expected, but still delish. (More of a Ceviche). I... More

Enjoyed an early bird prix fixe dinner before the restaurant became busy. Loved the fresh warm bread, salads and dinner sides, but our chicken marsala was a bit overcooked and dry. The sauce itself was tasty. All in all we enjoyed our meal and would go back again for an early dinner.

We'd been here years ago and thought it was okay, but last night's dinner led us to re-think this cute bistro off Antiques Row in Kensington. We had a great dinner. Seared scallops, beef stroganoff and the trout special. All very good. French onion soup was also delicious. While we didn't get to take advantage of the early bird special,... More

This is a wonderful, out of the way restaurant in quaint old town Kensington on antique row. The service is friendly, warm and attentive. You could not ask for better service. The food is equally as good. On our latest visit, I started with fried oysters served with avocado and a squiggle of a creamy sauce. My wife started with... More

When we stumbled on this restaurant, no one was there, and we were worried. However, by the time we left, a number of guests were enjoying their dinners. My brother enjoyed the warm bread, but I didn't try it. I had a salad (excellent) and an entrée consisting of grilled salmon over a large bed of ratatouille. Delicious and nutritious!... More

What a delight to sit with friends in this cheery room and enjoy a delicious meal, attentively served on attractive china. The staff is always gracious and helpful. A prix fixe two-course lunch is available as are many staple menu items and several daily specials. At my most recent visit, I enjoyed tomato basil soup, salmon cakes with roasted potatoes,... More
