Having grown up in the Czech Republic, this was the first middle European restaurant in the US that I would not hesitate to recommend. Food was excellent and authentic, restaurant clean and with authentic decor, pleasant staff speaking Czech, great beer and prices slightly lower than common for Czech or German restaurants in the US. We ordered pierogy, pork schnitzel... More

After spending a semester studying in Prague, our DC based son wanted to introduce us to a sample of his experience and brought us to this Bistro Bohem. Barbara was our server and she was wonderful. Because we got there at 4pm they were not yet serving dinner entrees so we could only order the 'small' plates... which was more... More

We were greeted right away by our server who was very nice and offered water. While it took a little while for our server to return to take our brunch order, the food was wonderful and came very quickly. I don't lay claim to being an borscht expert but I thought it was exceptional and it did hit the spot... More

If you love Eastern European cuisine then you should check out this restaurant (no pun intended. ) the staff was very friendly and the food delicious. It's close to the Howard Theatre so it makes a nice pre-show meal.

Good food (though some dishes a bit over salted), generous portions, good beer and wine selection from the Czech region. Heavy on the meats consistent with what we found on our trip to the Czech Republic. Very attentive and knowledgable staff. Reasonably priced for Washington DC.

A wonderful neighborhood restaurant with great food that is not the ordinary fare. Eastern European varieties are all excellent. Service is friendly and efficient. Absolutely worth a visit.

...The potato pancakes (‘ƒ‹ƒƒ̰̈́‘ƒ‹ƒƒ̰̈́Moravian Cmunda) and the Veggie burger are must-haves! The fries are excellent too. The best part, though, is their coffee! Every cup is meticulously prepared and is delicious! I have tried the flat white, the cappuccino, the maple mocha latte, and the orange cardamom latte, and they are all EXCEPTIONAL. The service is great, the ambience (indoor ... More

This is one of my favorite places in Shaw. It has maintained its status even with the influx of so many new hot spots into the neighborhood. It's good, comforting food, served at a reasonable price, in an unassuming place without any pretense. Great VERY affordable wine list. Pretty good cocktails, too! Pierogi a must and their new menu is... More

Stopped by for a quick bite and found a great place for food. The dishes were well prepared and tasted incredible. We had Perogi and a several other dishes that came out quickly. Loved every bite. Leftovers tasted great as well.

This restaurant is serving classic central european fare. Pork, schnitzel, goulash, sauerkraut and pierogi's. Good news for us is that they also have 3 or 4 vegetarian options. The kids always eat schnitzel and they loved the ones served here. The Goulash is perfect. There is a sizable wine and cocktail list for a small restaurant. They make some good... More
