There were eight of us for dinner, and the restaurant accommodated us outside, which is what we wanted. We sampled the drinks, appetizers, main courses and side dishes, and everyone agreed the food was terrific. The outdoor area has big, wide umbrellas, which made eating outside on a warm Washington night quite enjoyable. My wife grew up in Brussels and... More

We were treated with great service and delicious food. We had made a reservation, and everyone in our party had a wonderful dinner. Very large and interesting beer selection.

Have eaten at the bar, in the restaurant and outside and on every visit, everything has been terrific from the time you are greeting to the time you leave. The food has always been on point and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. The Belgian beers, mussels, oysters, fries, beef stew, and even the chicken have been outstanding!... More

We were delighted with this find, too bad we don't live nearby. Great.....everything. Wide selection of beers, which we indulged in. Their wine cellar looked extensive but we stayed with beer which complimented our meal. We liked so many starters that we ordered 3 for our meal to share. Charcuterie board, mussels with pomme frites and raw clams and oysters... More

It's easy to be enthusiastic about this bistro: the interior is charming (heavy woodwork, large clocks extending out, each from a different part of the world) and the food and drink are what you'd expect in an outstanding Belgian bistro. The Belgian beer list is extremely generous and wide-ranging (I had a Petrus Red, and Beck is the first place... More

Skip the higher end chop houses and dine on heavenly steak and frites here. Terrific location with a lovely patio area and distinctive French vibe. The mussels were amazing. Delicious craft cocktails, great bartenders and the wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive without being instrusive. Family was in town for a convention with several scheduled dinners at Bourbon, etc. We... More

Very good brasserie style food. Mussels were among the best ever. Service was excellent. Room was a little hot and stuffy, but it was a hot day. Recommended.

I ate at this restaurant with a small group while attending a conference in the area. We had a few extra folks in the end, but the restaurant didn't skip a beat and seated us promptly. The food was excellent, and the service was attentive. I would have preferred individual checks (rather than splitting the total bill among all of... More

Went for lunch for a special celebration. There were 8 of us and they were able to accommodate us outside as it was one of the first really nice spring days. The mussels were outstanding as were the Belgian beers. We also liked the frites and the trio of mayo provided...delicious! My dining companians enjoyed the entrees they ordered and... More
