Delicious!

After our visit to Tudor Place, we headed to Cafe Bonaparte for lunch. I could have eaten at this snug little creperie nearly every day (and would have, if it had been closer to our apartment). I chose a cheesy mushroom crepe and a lovely, fresh salad. The food is soooooo good here! Tables are... read more

In my opinion, a good crepe is hard to find. This cafe hit out of the ballpark! We only come here for Sunday brunches. So this review is for their brunch only. You can order a basket of bread before your brunch, but it's fine if you don't. We both ordered savory crepes and of course, we could not leave... More

I've been to other french restos in DC Maryland but this is on my top list so far :) Its a small resto but I loved how they made it cozy and pleasant. I really loved their creme brulee which was cooked to perfection and Magret de Canard with risotto was my favorite! The prices are very reasonable for the... More

My friend recently opened a hair salon up the street and now this restaurant has become her favorite spot. She took me and I was immediately wow'd by the small, but grand dining room. It is very french! The food was fresh and prepared to perfection. The prices were reasonable and with a small dining room, you always have staff... More

This restaurant is delightful. Right on Wisconsin Ave between P & Q, it is small but delivers a delicious menu. All of the salads are quite good. The service is great. Reservations are recommended, but occasionally you can call and get a table right away. The two-top table next to the window is the best. Great for coffee and desserts... More

Rocket salad-generous portion of just picked greens. The barramundi and complimenting sauce was fantastic, neither over salted nor overly rich. The orange crêpe was tender and flavorful. The meal was perfect.

Reasonably priced, this place is great. The french staff are very (unsurprisingly) french in their demeanor and the food is excellent. I wish I could spend more time there, trying everything on the menu. Worth a stop.

We went to Georgetown for the French Festival. The street was filled with sidewalk sales and musicians. Cafe Bonaparte was packed but we able to put our names in and walk about until we were texted. It's a tiny place where everyone is happily jammed in together. The server was awesome especially since she also did hostess duty. I ordered... More

A bit like its namesake, Cafe Bonaparte is petite. It boasts six stools at the bar, perhaps ten tables in the dining room and small sidewalk seating, weather permitting. Arriving on a weekday at 10AM, it was already half full with a mix of businessmen, students and locals. I would not recommend it as a destination dining choice, as the... More
