Bistro San Martin
This is our go to restaurant for any special occasion. Always the best meal ever!
Bistro San Martin is always our first choice for special occasion dinners. The food preparation is top notch and very tasty. The staff is friendly, well trained and professional.
The food was outstanding. The couple that went with us made reservation for next month as well
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.
Beautiful food and servers.. Can’t wait to come back..
Wonderful food, great service, and the owner was personable and attentive. We had a lovely time
Delicious food as always. Best place for all my special occasions. We love the Bistro.
My wife and I always go here for her birthday our anniversary and any other special events in our life. Food was amazing owner was very friendly. He came by our table to get to know us while sipping on a class of wine(very classy). Love it!
Overall on point in presentation and food quality.
The flat iron steak was delicious! The key lime pie martini was refreshing and good! Lovely presentation!
Best Food ever!

I have been eating here for years. Always consistent, delicious, and great service
Always delicious!! The chicken is outstanding and the naughty chocolate cake is so good!
Amazing food!! Great service and perfect spot for my night out with my best friend 🤗
The service and food was amazing. The rburb prawns were out of this world! The steak was very tender and flavorful! I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a great meal!
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.
Best restaurant experience in many years. Food was excellent...wish I hadn’t gotten full so fast, LOL
Incredible food and service. They really treat you like royalty. And kings eat good!
This restaurant continues to deliver an outstanding dinner experience. I have eaten there on several occasions and have always walked away satisfied.
The food is just wonderful. Its a fantastic experience at the The Bistro.
Quality and service is the best without being pretentious
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.
Always a great dining experience, from the superb and unique cuisine, to the sumptuous art and always spectacular waitstaff.
As with every time we're here, everything was perfect. Thanks to the staff and chef for an incredible anniversary experience.
THIS PLACE IS SO AMAZING! THE FOOD & SERVICE WONDERFUL!
THE QUALITY OF THEIR STEAKS IS BETTER THEN ANYPLACE I HAVE BEEN, AND THE PRESENTATION IS OUTSTANDING! XOXOXO
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!
Great choices on the menu. Food was outstanding. Service was very attentive with good timing between dishes.
Amazing to find such a great restaurant in Arlington, no need to travel to Seattle for a 5 star dinner.
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!
Always count on a delicious meal here. And the service is excellent!
Amazing experience from being greeted at the door to the top notch service and the most delicious dinner! Can’t wait to return!!
As usual, the food and atmosphere were superb. And equally as important, the staff was very gracious, engaging and attentive. My wife and I have never had a bad experience here!!
A most refreshing change to find such an excellent ‘fine dining’ restaurant in the area. Having tried several other similar establishments recently ... this time we were Not disappointed. We had crab and prawn cocktail, snails (a little more garlic please) and crab cakes for appetizers.. All were absolutely delicious. Our entree’s included the Duck and rack of lamb ... Again delicious. A great selection of fresh vegetables accompanied each dish. Portion sizes were excellent and generous. A great serving staff ... friendly, professional with the added benefit of a greeting by the Host .. All together a wonderful evening and what a joy to see such a menu. Other restaurants take note!
Can’t wait to go again soon and especially to take family and friends.
We love the San Martin Bistro. Nothing but amazing staff, friendly and the best food in the NW.
Always! We've taken and recommended many znd it's always their new favorite!!!
They never cease to amaze us. We had boasted about this place to our closest friends who now live in Texas. They came into town to visit and we snapped up the opportunity to share Bistro San Martin with them. They were blown away . Many thanks to the staff
Nice setting, but it was a little on the noisy side and also warm with the open kitchen. The service was inviting and attentive and Steven, one of the owners, was very accommodating when we requested to move to a cooler area in the restaurant. We had an heirloom caprese salad that was delicious along with the mushroom and puff pastry. The sauce for the mushroom dish was creamy and decadent. We each tried the seafood bisque special. It was smooth as silk with mouthy chunks of seafood with a flavor that only wanted for a little lemon. I was a little disappointed with the duck entree as the skin was soggy and the duck was leaning towards the dry side. My gal had the fillet and the blue cheese compound butter was the perfect compliment with just the right amount of pungent cheese blended in. For our cocktails we had a lemon drop and spiced pear sidecar. Both were well mixed and really hit the spot.
All in all a really nice evening and dinning experience that we cannot wait to do again.
