Enjoyable meal in a nice ambiance

We ate dinner here and enjoyed our meal. We started with the Charcuterie Plate which was great! My husband had the Classic Mussels and Frites and enjoyed them, but when I stole a Mussel from him I did find it to have a bit of sand in it - guess I was unlucky.

I have tried here one of the best mussels ever!- The place is big but friendly and the service just fine. They have at least 5 different types of mussels and all are excellent (liked better the mediterranean ones with chorizo). It's probably better to be seated inside and you may even be greeted by the chef as we did!-... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner here. The restaurant is bright and friendly, with attractive chairs. The staff (almost all male) is very polite and attentive. The dishes were served very quickly. We had the split pea soup and oysters on half shell for starters, both excellent. For mains we had the skate wings and the choucroute, both very good.... More

Excellent service is the first thing I would say. I particularly wanted to have the mussels, which is why I went. They were well prepared BUT maybe half of them had a lot of sand in them.I ate every one of the accompanying frites - they were that good. We had the creme brulee for dessert, and it was fantastic.... More

The menu is very broad--there is something for every one. We had 2 different dinner 'paths' when we saw the menu (foie gras, duck vs oysters and mussels). We did the mussels and frites and wow were we glad! they were great! (Not that I won't go back and have the other things, too!). We got 4 half orders to... More

It's not easy to find a first-rate restaurant that is open for brunch on Saturday in the Penn Quarter/City Center neighborhood of DC. Four of us went to Brasserie Beck, which was far from filled and hence pleasantly quiet. We sat at a sunlit table in an alcove and spent a deliciously unhurried hour and a half catching up with...

Recommended by friends, they didn't steer us wrong! One night we had cocktails ('side ways'), and bar food - the dip with onion and Gruyere was amazing! We went back for dinner. Hubby had a steak and I had beef stew with Brussels sprouts, desserts were great too. Wait and bar staff were very friendly. Wish we lived closer!
