On the edge of one of Bethesda's dining districts is a charmingly decorated cafe that should be on everyone's list for a special night out. The atmosphere is French country, but the cuisine is upscale French. As an aficionado of soft shell crab, I will certify (as will my wife) that the best soft shell crab that I have ever... More

We revisited this venerable and tried-and-true French restaurant after new management and chef took over. The crowded interior and hand-written checks are unchanged, but the well-trained and experienced new chef has new ideas and new menu items. I tried the quenelles a la Americaine (with lobster sauce) as a first course and found them sturdy rather than fluffy but tasty.... More

Our party of four went to this restaurant after learning of the new Chef and good reviews. The place was busy and that made us optimistic. The staff was pleasant though not overly professional or elegant. Not well dressed or refined. But pleasant enough. The decor is old school, old building, not quaint, just tight corners and old decorations, tables,... More

Based on the great trip advisor reviews, we ventured across the Potomac into Maryland to check out this French restaurant in Bethesda. It was a very good, decent restaurant--but not as great as some of these reviews led us to believe. Service was decent, although it started just a bit slow. Also, our waitress never told us about the evening... More

We've been to this restaurant many times and it was always good. Read in the paper that it had been sold and the new owner was the former chef at another restaurant we frequent. The night we went we didn't have a reservation but the restaurant wasn't full and we were seated right away. Then we waited for a server... More

Party of 4 had an early dinner. Order was taken promptly, 3 of the party had Dover Sole each asked for it prepared differently and all 3 orders were done perfectly. The mussels were lovely. The bread basket came with several choices and the butter was perfect, ready to spread always a good sign for us. Nice choices on the... More

"WHAT A CHANGE" We went to Le Vieux Logis last Wednesday and I have to state that the change in ownership has brought a remarkable change in our dining experience. Great new menu, followed by the warm and friendly service. Sara and Ruby are always enthusiastic and pleasant and genuinely interested in the well-being of the guests, having been there... More

Using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, the food blossoms under this French chef's touch. The breads are homemade and lovely. The new menu contains some old favorites albeit with a new twist and new appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Excellent entrees include seasonal items such as shad, crab cakes, and quail and standard items such as liver, veal cheeks, steak, and... More

We had dinner here in December before the new chef started. The menu was dated and the food was poorly presented. We heard by word of mouth that since the change in ownership, the restaurant has improved. We decided to give it another try. We learned that having the new chef in the kitchen, the change is very much for... More

Change is definitely NOT always for the better! After having been away for awhile, with another couple returned to Logis on Friday, February 21st, and we asked for Diana who always makes the evening memorable. Unfortunately, we were told that she is no longer a part of the restaurant. Quel dommage! WHAT A REAL PITY! The food was OK but... More
