Don't get fooled by the the exteriors. The interiors are much better than what you think, passing it on a grey fall day. Even a bit cool:) Loved the mussels and the service! Can absolutely recommend this place

Ate here on the last night of our holiday in the USA. Large brasserie but with lots of atmosphere. Good menu and the food was excellent. Very good efficient and attentive service (but not over the top). One of our more expensive meals in the USA but definitely one of the best two in the three weeks we were there.

Ha a lovely dinner here with my business partners. I particularly like the shrimp and grits appetizer and chocolate dessert.

I would love to be considered a foodie, not a gourmand, but when something silly happens like It did at Brasserie Beck, it's hard for me to believe you'll trust my judgment. In addition, I need your advice on what to do. Read on, laugh a bit and then tell me the best course of action to take in the... More

Started off with being seated in a section of the restaurant that was stifling. When I asked to be moved, the hostess was very understanding and we were moved immediately. We did get a better table, but it took a long time to for the waiter to greet us and get us get drinks. Overall the service was a bit... More

So many great choices! The mussels were the best! Definitely make this a stop on your trip! Also try their version of the Moscow Mule.

The mussels were good and quite plentiful. The shrimp cocktail - well, the shrimp were probably defrosted just hours before. But the cocktail sauce was first rate. The biggest problem is the noise factor. Conversation is very difficult. It is LOUD!

Wonderful meal and very nice setting! Enjoyed the open kitchen where you could watch meals being finished. Our party of five each had something different and everyone raved about their food!

Overpriced excellent drinks, all in all very good food. The Mussels were excellent, as well as the fries. Both are most recommended. Other sides were ok, but pricy (cucumber salad which costs pennies and tastes like my home made summer salad , and was a small serving is an example). Good fish. Ok service. We didn't have desserts. Nice (but... More

A great Belgian restaurant in DC. The dining room is nice and has many rooms. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. I felt like I was back in Europe. They also have an outside dining area. Can't wait to eat there again but hope to enjoy the outside area. They have a few types of mussels. I ordered the... More
