I really enjoyed our dinner. The menu was good, the wine was delicious, and our server was very friendly and helpful. I also loved the decor.
You can never go wrong here and the staff is beyond friendly.
Nice romantic French ambiance, wonderful food, superb wines, and fantastic service. I highly recommend, and we will be back, again. One of our go-to special occasion restaurants, but you don't have to wait for an occasion either.
My partner and I arrived for our 13th Anniversary dinner. From start to finish the experience was exceptional. The fact that we dined outside on a lovely spring evening certainly added. All courses were exceptionally good (I strongly recommend the vegetarian entree). Our waitress was wonderful. A lovely way to venture back in the world of fine dining as the sting of the pandemic begins at last to fade.
We had a wonderful experience at Bistro Cacao. We enjoyed it so much we returned the next day.
Amazing food and wonderful experience!
This was my first time visiting bistro cacao, and I will definitely be returning. Would recommend! We were celebrating a special occasion and each enjoyed a starting dish, main course, and dessert, along with a digestif and glass of Champagne. Each dish was delicious! And, the ambiance was cozy and romantic, particularly the room with red curtains where we ate.
Always love a neighborhood place and they do a fine job
We had a mix of plates, mine being the mushroom pasta--rich and creamy, with plenty of 'rooms. Both the trout and the steak frites we highly recommend, while I recommend the Hazy ol fashioned drink. We like, too, the way the outdoor dining is set up--ample and safe.
Satisfactory in every way.
Wonderful experience. Wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. We were not hurried and everything was excellent.
Average tasting food. Escargot cold. We told waiter. 2nd plate same. Duck way undercooked but flavorful. Beef Bourguignon very bland. Creme brûlée l? More like mustard. Great service, though.
Bistro Cacao is a wonderful restaurant, lucky for us living on Capitol Hill, the wait staff are always warm and polite, always asking if they can describe a dish or the special of the evening, but most of all its enjoyable, you are not rushed, and your courses are brought to your table at the right time, and again the food is wonderful.
We celebrated our anniversary by going out to a restaurant for the first time in over a year. The food and service were great. We had an outdoor table and felt very safe.
Nice outdoor patio with comfortable chairs. The waiter was very pleasant and remembered us. Food was very good, as were the drinks. Liked the oversized ice cube in my smoky old fashioned; avoids getting the drink watered down. We’ll be here again.
Wonderful dinner / loved the experience
Really good food and service
Great restaurant, delicious food, amazing service!!! 5 *
Excellent in every waty
Lovely prix fixe Easter Dinner on their patio. Diners were well-spaced.
First brunch out in a year. Can’t wait to go back for dinner
Good food with good service. Dried apricots in the clafoutis was the one, unfortunate/discordant note
Easter brunch was excellent! Service was outstanding! We will definitely be back!
Wonderful Easter brunch. Friendly staff. Incredible food and drink. Can’t wait to come back and try dinner service soon!
Easter Brunch 2021 was great! Weather was perfect for outside seating and the ambience was beautiful. Great food and service for a great price!
Easter brunch on the covered patio was lovely. The food was exquisite, and the three course prix-fixe was a good value. As the weather gets warmer, I would assume/hope that some of the plastic tarps on the perimeter of the patio will be removed to permit more fresh air to enter and circulate. We will definitely be returning for dinner sometime in the near future.
Very nice dining experience. Our server was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Overall great atmosphere.
Nadia was fabulous - attentive, sweet and definitely made our birthdays very special!
I arrived slightly early for my birthday reservation, and insisted it was fine that I would sit at the bar and wait until my table was ready, but they tried to accommodate, so they set my boyfriend and me at a different table that was by the window and not as cozy and romantic as I had originally requested. So, I was a little disappointed there. Otherwise, the food was incredible. Our waiter, Sam, was extremely friendly, accommodating, and professional, and the ambience (aside from the blinding street light from the window they sat us by in the romantic “red room”) was very warm and cozy. I will definitely be back.
I love French food. And will be back again. Great food, attentive service, lovely atmosphere, great wine.
Wonderful food and service, lovely French music played at an enjoyable level, friendly ambiance, very safe feeling for indoor dining.
Bistro Cacao’s food was delicious (our group would highly recommend everything we ate including: the Rockfish, Steak Frites, Filet Mignon, and Duck), the outdoor seating was lovely (and very empty on a rainy Sunday evening), and the server was attentive and helpful. Will definitely be going back again!
Always enjoy Bistro Cacao, especially on the patio on a beautiful day!
Too expensive for the what it is. Food was very mediocre in taste and flavor.
great service by Joshua.. very attentive without intruding. a great meal.
Always great coming back to this neighborhood gem. Service is excellent, food is satisfying and overall a good time!
Took my mother to celebrate her birthday. She loved it!!
We always have a wonderful experience here! Great staff, yummy food, lovely atmosphere. It’s our vacation experience in our neighborhood.
It was a cozy place to go. The Price was reasonable, given the good food.
We just had cocktails and dessert but it was all excellent, including the service.
Food and service outstanding as usual! The outdoor seating is nice and we could enjoy the sunset even inside the covered patio. We were disappointed that the lemon tart has been discontinued but are hoping that it returns for the summer!
