I had a lovely lunch here while in Washington. The beet salad and steak frites were both lovely. Only the French onion soup, slightly bitter, was a disappointment. And, the restaurant has a slow easy feel. With a glass of wine; perfect spot near the...More

After a hot day of walking, I sat outside to enjoy the PA ave tourist watching. Appeared to be only one server. The Brut Rose was good but far from chilled. The chicken croissant was served on one of the flakiest, buttery croissants that I...More

We met our son and daughter-in-law here on our second night in D.C., all of us from elsewhere. Great cocktails and wine selection. We both shared roasted beet salads and then salmon like never before - crusted on top of soft, succulent meat. Had to...More

My friends & I had a fantastic meal here last night. Chef Brian even came out to greet us. The steak frites was amazing! My girlfriend also raved about her burger. Definitely coming back here soon.

When I think French Bistro I think good food, calm atmosphere. The food was good, the space is small and cozy, but the music is a droning house beat. The tagliatelle with shrimp, pesto, tomatoes, Basil and Parmesan was very good. The sauce was amazing....More
