Great place, but what happened to the pizza? 11/11/2010

I have enjoyed good food and service in the past from this bistro, including the crispy, tasty pizza. My last visit might be my last visit if the soggy, undercooked, badly flavored pizza is any indication. How disappointing... more

Charming, in a nice way 8/30/2010

Though not the most conceptual restaurant, Ulah tries to ooze trendy without being overly pretentious; a soundtrack that includes Lady Gaga and Rihanna does the trick. Entrees run at least $20, but thin-crust pizzas like a Mediterranean loaded like a Greek salad and burgers and sandwiches are large, filling and under $15. Try Ulah after happy our on Wednesdays when buckets of 5 Landsharks go for a refreshing $15. Our server was sweet, letting us lazily linger over our lagers for quite awhile before we ordered dinner. more

A Cozy, Neighborhood Spot 5/28/2010

I've been to Ulah Bistro on different occasions - a first date, late dinner with friends, etc. - and the restaurant has been great every time. They serve delicious meals with good portions and have a solid drink list (I'm particularly happy that they have alcoholic Arnold Palmer's). Ulah offers American cuisine like Roasted Chicken and Crab Cakes - typical dishes you can find at other restaurants, but they're particularly cooked well and very tasty. I've had their Jambalaya, which was top-notch, and comparable to other DC spots that concentrate on southern food. Nothing particularly pops out from my experiences as absolutely phenomenal, but I definitely like this place a lot. Think of Ulah as a good, local alternative to just going to a regular 'ol Cheesecake Factory or Red Lobster. You'll get the warm, cozy experience of a nice local spot with food that's just as good, if not better. more

Go To Spot 4/1/2010

We moved around the block from here about a year ago and have eaten here over 25 times since and have yet to have a bad meal or rude servers. The bar tenders and servers are always courteous and the management is always present. This place has become my go to place for great dinners and solid brunches. more

Horrible Service 12/28/2009

This restaurant's horrible service and management with poor customer service skills makes it difficult to enjoy anything that it has to offer. Don't waste your time or money. more

Editorial review from washingtonpost.com 3/11/2008

Like it or not, the fancification of the U Street corridor continues, as Ulah Bistro joins the likes of Marvin and Station 9, upmarket venues that wouldn't look out of place in Georgetown or Penn Quarter. Ulah comes across as a misspelling until we remind ourselves where we are and learn the owner's identity. Med Lahlou says he came up with the hybrid using the restaurant's address and the first three letters of his last name. No stranger to the business, he also co-owns Tunnicliff's on Capitol Hill and Stoney's in Logan Circle. Elements of both restaurants -- American food and decor that are the dining equivalent of easy-listening music -- are evident in the new one. But Ulah appears inclined to one-up its siblings. Take the matter of pizza. Stoney's uses a common gas oven to bake its pies, while Ulah factors a wood fire into its recipe. And the menu of burgers, salads, fish and pasta from chef Mark Macuirles, previously of the Pampered Palate in Pasadena, is punctuated with dishes that show a sense of humor and a dash of whimsy. Thus meatloaf is described as "American pate" (it's decent, and also grilled), and "mojito" chicken supposedly is glazed with rum (although the spirit eludes us). As Ulah eases into business, we can vouch for the kitchen's respectable pizza and the bar's potent Manhattans. Visitors have a choice of two dining rooms: a sunny ground floor, trimmed with crown molding, that ends in an open kitchen, and a second story that fulfills Lahlou's "two-in-one" wish to include a lounge in the mix of 130 or so seats. Dressed with low couches, lights that resemble tiny red flying saucers and a black granite bar (in addition to tables), the upstairs space also captures a pigeon's-eye view of a neighborhood treasure, Ben's Chili Bowl. --Tom Sietsema (First Bite, March 12, 2008) more
