Excellent Belgium Fare!

We have loved "Mussels in Brussels" so thought we would try this. It was perfect! Small, super staff, good beers and wine, and excellent moulies! We shared escargot appetizer and had mussels mariniere and pastis with frites naturally. We will be back!!

Had a wonderful time here. The place is small but seems just right. The waiter, Belgian, very cool fellow. Funny, i ordered a bottle of Champagne and before i tasted the glass the waiter had taken the bottle and glasses away as he said "the pop, she was not right!"! Replaced the bottle. Had steak frites. Was perfect. Really the... More

We have eaten here numerous times. It's small (accommodating perhaps 50 diners max) so if you don't have a reservation you may have to wait. And we've noticed they've reduced the number of mussels options over the years. But this is still arguably THE place to go if you are a serious mussel aficionado, as my wife and I both... More

This was our second visit. The first time, I ordered a Mussels dinner and they brought me the mussels appetizer. This time, we had skipped lunch so we ordered a soup for each of us and a goat cheese appetizer to boot from our waiter. We said we needed a few minutes to decide on entrees. The managers asked if...

Very enjoyable dinner. We started with Paté de Campagne and the Croustillant de Chevre Chaud. The pate was very good. The chevre wasn’t chaud but actually came cold. My Carbonnade a la Flamande with Belgian frites more than made up for it. This classic was delicious and spot on with flavorings. My husband had the duck confit which was excellent.... More

I first ate lunch here with my realtor, and that sold me on the Palisades neighborhood in DC. I brought friends for a weekend dinner and we had a perfect meal. For starters we had house cured salmon and a Caesar salad. Both were so good we considered asking for second portions and skipping the entrees. But when the entries... More

This is an excellent restaurant, with good, professional service. The maître'd is exceptionally courteous. It is tiny, with almost no waiting area, so I suggest making a reservation.

The Et Viola! is indeed a very cozy space - Bruxelles of the 1990ies. Intimate and well-suited for a family dinner as well as a tête-en-tête. So we went there for a family dinner during the weekend. This place would not win a prize for the most hipster place - but you will see few of these anyway. It is... More

We had a reservation for 7:15. 40 minutes later we still had not been seated. We gave up and went next door to Bistroquet and had a delightful meal. We will not return here.

A friend suggested this restaurant, but had sudden doubts: 'As you live in Brussels, you might not like a Belgian restaurant.' It was a great choice. I've been to so many fake Belgian restaurants (where the frites are the only remotely Belgian item on the menu), that seeing this menu gave me a home from home feeling. It's a lovely... More
