Stopped by in person earlier this week to find Bistro d'Oc PERMANENTLY CLOSED! The restaurant's closure was confirmed by House Management Staff at Ford's Theatre located directly across the street. For the past year or so, MAJOR construction of a "Multi-Story, Mixed Use Development Project"...More

I'm so glad this place isn't as well known as it should be. Fantastic French food and good well priced wine. Good place for a business meeting - ask for a booth or table in the back. Order the caesar, any kind of fish on...More

I go to this unpretentious cafe, located across from the Ford Theater in MetroCenter, when I want to enjoy simple, gratifying French food. The prices are reasonable by DC standards, and it is easy to take the Metro there. They offer a small but clever...More

Bistro D’oc is a downtown location that offers unfussy, tasty, and skillfully cooked food that pays tribute to the Southwest region of France, the region from which the owner’s patriarch claims his roots in his homeland. The dishes possess a level of humble earthiness while...More

As authentic a French bistro as you'll find in DC, with a small but well thought out menu. The restaurant itself is also small, and when full can make elbow room hard to come by. But the excellent wines and the absolutely delectable dishes should...More

Have been to Bistro d'Oc many times over the past years, although we've only gone for dinner. We keep promising ourselves that some day we'll go for lunch or brunch, but as we live outside of DC, we've not yet made it. Bistro d'Oc has...More

Located opposite the Ford Theatre this is a good location. We each had a French onion soup which I highly recommend, quite tasty with good bread accompanying. My wife had a prawn Risotto which was nice but tasted quite strong/intense. My large steak was cooked...More

Ambled in here on a rainy Saturday and sat at the bar, kind of curious about all of the old French photos and red, faux painted walls. Being right across from Ford's Theater, it's pretty easy to find. Fresh Spring peas, asparagus, frisee and smoky...More

We were wandering around DC looking for a place to eat and found this bistro. Quirky menu, great food and friendly service. Went back a few days later for lunch and it was just as good.
