We always enjoy the food and the service, but this time it was quite noisy because of a company's Christmas party. The next time I think I will ask if any large parties are in the same room before booking.

My wife and I have been to Bistro San Martin twice now and absolutely LOVE everything about it! Food and service is unparalleled. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for, world class cuisine costs a little more. This is THE PLACE for special occasions and when you need a fantastic dining experience.

Delicious food! The portions weren't over the top like you get at other restaurants. They were just right. I did get really full with desert. Everything was great about our experience and I will be going back when I get another chance and every year with my wife on our anniversary.

The Bistro San Martin, was outstanding. I am so impressed. The chef was amazing and his co-owner and wait staff were so friendly. This was my first time here and I have worked in downtown Arlington for Dr. John Dykstra for 10 years. I will definitely go again.

First time dining here. Had heard good reviews about it so decided to try it for a nicer dinner place. Very impressed by the quality of food and our server was very nice. Definitely worth it.

Excellent experience, fine dining at it's best. We didn't feel rushed. Our meal did take a while to come, but I think if we had ordered an appetizer and salad, the time would have moved perfectly (I'm allergic to most of the menu hence we didn't order the delicious pre-dinner affair).
I ordered the filet mignon, it was mouth watering.
The alcoholic beverages were perfectly made and not watered down.
I would definitely suggest for a special occasion, the atmosphere was very intimate.
We will be coming back.

As usual the food and service were fantastic. We have been there 3 times now and all is great. We have been seated at the same small 2 person table every time. The owner stopped by to chat and it is like you are old customers that are there every week. A great place to have a great meal and be treated like old friends.

So delicious! The service was incredible and the food was amazing. So neat to watch the food being prepared. What a great buzz going on! For a high-end bistro, I thought the prices were reasonable for the quality and attention to detail you get. My one and only “negative” feedback would be that it needs a facelift into the 21st century. I loved a lot of the art and everything was extremely clean and well maintained, just very outdated. I can’t wait to return and will be suggesting to anyone that hasn’t been!

We went here on September 6th, 2019 for an early anniversary. Though we didn't state that to anyone, the treatment we got made us feel like we could be celebrating anything!
