Feel like you’ve crossed the Pond into a Paris Bistrot

From the moment you step into this bistrot – You feel like you’ve crossed the pond and actually walked into a bistrot you’d find in Paris.. It’s a huge place with an upstairs and large walk up bar.. It was packed when we went and they were accustomed to it being busy! The menu reads like a a... read more

Can't say we had a bad experience, but the dishes were lacking any creative spark, though well prepared. Our party of three agreed that for the price - rather high - one expected more. I had the roast chicken, which was good but not inspiring. The various desserts - tending to those with ice cream, were generous and very tasty.... More

My friend and i went to eat there, and i order oysters as a main course, it doesn't even fill you up just a little. The taste wasn't nice at all. Had to order a chicken with fries, which was ok.

We had a perfectly lovely soup and tartine in this restaurant. Very quaint, eclectic and the service was super. I'll definitely return!

Francophones visiting DC should may way to this super cool locale. The atmosphere is fantastic, the food excellent and the wines superb. Don't forget to sample some of the amazing side dishes on offer like the Gratin Dauphinois; delicious!

The restaurant is very cool. Super-high ceiling with an old-fashioined French bistro feel to it and it was packed and buzzy. The service was good. The starters were dull but the mains - we both got steak - were very good.

Went there last night with 2 other people, had never been there before and have discovered a new favorite. The food was delicious. I felt like I was back in Paris and would recommend this to anyone who wants good French food without the white tablecloth.

Love the fois gras here. It's among the best in the city. Steak frites is also great. Love this place and the energetic atmosphere.

If you're in Washington and are looking for a restaurant that fills the blanks, then this is it. Great atmosphere, food, service, and price. Enjoy. We did.

My husband and I came for dinner (with a reservation). Were seated promptly. We each enjoyed a salad, some french onion soup, and shared a pot of mussels and fries. The atmosphere was friendly, noisy and festive. Reminded me of Europe!
