When here with a reservation for thanksgiving lunch. The service was very attentive and the food was superb. I had the lamb and it was great. They also had great bread.

You might drive by this restaurant without seeing it. Use your GPS. The outside of the building is unassuming, and a bit eclectic. The inside is a very charming little French restaurant in the Alsatian style. Both the food and the service were excellent. Try the rainbow trout with risotto. Save room for dessert.

After a nice evening meal last month, 3 ladies went for lunch last week. At this bistros price point, the service, presentation and food could have , and should have been better. A little disappointed after our previous experience there. Plenty of parking.

Everything about this place is fabulous. The greeting is warm and welcoming. The wait staff are incredibly knowledgeable and the service is impeccable. The food is completely on point-delicious and I'm told very authentic (my husband has worked extensively in France). I very highly recommend!!!!!

I've worked in the Woodbridge area for 30 years and many restaurants have come and gone in that time. I was looking for a place for lunch to meet up with a lifelong friend (50 years!) and spend some time catching up. Even though we only live about 35 miles apart, life intervenes and we rarely see each other unless... More

My wife and I first visited L'Hermitage for an anniversary several years ago. We were looking for a place that was quaint, offered great food and was relatively close. After seeing several positive reviews online, we choose Bistro L'Hermitage in historic Occoquan Virginia. The place doesn't really look very spectacular from the outside, a bit quirky and rather small. When... More

Bistro L'Hermitage is one of our favorite restaurants. We were there most recently to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The special touches from the Kir Royales to start and the creme brulee to finish our stellar meal were much appreciated. The professional staff works hard to provide a memorable experience, and the food is always excellent. When you step inside, you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent Saturday brunch ! Bistro L'Hermitage. Funky on the outside & elegant inside. Great service & food. All the traditional French dishes as well as other delights. If you are in Occoquan, make a point of dining here.

My husband and I went to Bistro L'Hermitage for my birthday, and it was one of the best birthday meals I've had! First of all, the service is impeccable, absolutely first class. They treated me like a queen. I truly felt as if I were at a bistro somewhere in France. And the food was to die for. I had... More

What a wonderful surprise. The outside of this restaurant doesn't reveal that the inside is like walking into a French Bistro. We were there on a Saturday morning right at opening time 11:30. ( We did not have a reservation) . The service was excellent ,as well as the food. I had the French onion soup and risotto (both were... More
