“Superb!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Brabo Tasting Room is next door to the highly rated Brabo's Restaurant offering a more casual, no reservations accepted, small plate version of its big brother. These side spaces are currently all the rage for the impossible-to-get-reservations top restaurants in Paris and Brabo pulls theirs off with great success.
The wine selection is more than adequate - mostly California/Oregon and French - and the availability of a "Taste-sized" pour a big plus.
The food is superb and reasonable for the quality - make sure you order the Mussles - and the service attentive. There are a variety of seating options - bar, booth, table, community table...all nice. Just go, you won't be disappointed.

“Nice Place for a Bite to Eat and a Drink”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

A group of friends and I were able to get seats at the bar around 9:30 pm on a Friday night. We shared a couple of cheese and antipasto plates that came with some tasty bread baskets, all were terrific. We were there until close. Found the staff to be very efficient, accommodating and friendly. Thought the prices for both the food and drinks to be reasonable for the DC area.

“Great mussles”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We came here on a Friday night without rsvp. We ended up on a communal table which was ok. It was a little cramped. I had the mussles and it was great. The service was not bad for a very crowded place. We would recommend it.
