Good French Restaurant

Very cosy and sometimes overcrowded but the food is good and service is very friendly. Prices are reasonable. Especially good are cocktails and duck filet but crepes and appetizers are also very nice.

Great for a quick bite... excellent food. You should not miss out on the crepes, or if you go for lunch try the special which allows a half sandwich and salad, or a crepe and salad. They have a full bar and espresso drinks.

Cocktails and crepes! The food was exquisite. I had the Bastille Crepe and DH had the Michelangelo Omelette, both topped with spot-on Hollandaise. The service was great and the cafe atmosphere was quaint and romantic.

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 quite close together, and the... 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.
