We had reservations for a party of 8 and were seated at our table immediately. The waitress was quick to take our beverage orders and tell us of the specials. She joked with us and promptly took our orders. All but 2 in our group...More

The waitress was fantastic and made sure we truly enjoyed our food. The oysters were fantastic! I also loved the shrimp and chorizo tostadas. Best dinner experience I've had in awhile.

Sat immediately. Wasn't busy. Wait time for drinks and food was ridiculous. 1 server and 3 runners. We were visiting but would not return.

I went there for appetizers. Wine was good but food was just so so. The atmosphere was a little disappointing. Very small.

Quick dinner this week. Tulip is a fairly high end restaurant option in Chevy Chase. Warm goat cheese salad was fairly average, but salmon and barramundi meals were both very good. Would put the Tulip in 2nd tier of fine dining restaurants of Lex.

For the visitor, this is not a place you would just come across. It is a neighbourhood restaurant in the sense that it is in a neighbourhood, not downtown but obviously the hordes of patrons come from all over the city. It is really popular...More

The Tulip Bistro + Bar is a small treasure in the Chevy Chase Neighborhood. Chef Spencer van den Dool has worked in fantastic local restaurants such as Pacific Pearl and Emmett"s before going to Holland and working at a 2 michelin star restaurant called De Kastanjehof, where he fine tuned his French-American cuisine. The menu offers such things as Mussels, Fish and Chips to Shrimp & Linguine & Short Ribs. There is something for everyone! Our wine list covers most of the world, while our martini list features old and new favorites, such as Tulip Margatini, Blue Goose and The Grand Cosmo.The Tulip will impress you and have you making a reservation for your next visit.
