For our annual Christmas family gathering we chose R Bistro. This is a small, quaint place on Massachusetts Ave. Service was great and the food from fresh ingredients was outstanding. I would recommend this place for couple get aways or family meetings. Make reservations.

Great location, pleasant environment, wonderful staff and OUTSTANDING MENU! This weeks menus selections were awesome. Our flank steak and vegetarian entrees were very eye appealing in their presentations and the tastes FANTASTIC. Also a very nice wine list complimented our meals.
