We visited for Sunday brunch without reservations. The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived around noon, nor was it crowded when we left, so unless you are a large party I don't think you necessarily need reservations. Our service was fine - we both ordered the bottomless mimosas and at first had a little trouble getting refills. But after... More

Ordered the special of the day...scallops. 5 small scallops circled a huge bed of spinach with pine nuts and some roasted tomatoes. So, the concept was great but the execution was poor. Service also did not fill my water up unless I asked. crab dip was tasty.

Cafe Deluxe is in a nice location with a water view. We stopped in for dessert and coffee. Everything was good as expected. Very nice atmosphere. Parking could be a challange.

I had there dinner and lunch. The food can be excellent. I can recommend the flat bread and the lamb sandwich. The lamb sandwich is my favourite. I had rainbow trout there once too. This was very good. The creme brulee is very good too. The service is sometimes slow and the selection of beers on tap could be better.

This was our first visit to the Gaithersburg Cafe DeLuxe. We arrived at 11:30 on a Sunday morning. We had reserved through Open Table, but there was plenty of availability that early. We were seated near a very large party (a bridal shower). Our waiter (Louis) heard me comment about the noisiness and immediately offered to move us to a... More

Good food decent value and atmosphere for family brunch! Went here with group for wife's bday. Wasn't expecting much compared to other family brunch places in area. Pleasantly surprised by good food and value, eggs Benedict both regular and crab good. Nice clean place with view if water. Had lunch items available as well. Other fancier places were 30-35 a...

Ate here for dinner on a weeknight. The outside patio was pleasant. We enjoyed the broth with the Thai mussels, but they should have been embarrassed to serve the mussels themselves - they were very small. We had two of the flatbreads; one with proscuitto was extremely salty, the other with brie, apples and walnuts was cloyingly sweet and very... More

We had dinner for a large group on a recent visit to the area. the staff made us feel welcome and the food was very good. The setting outdoors was especially nice with a view over the small lake.

I reserved a table for 15 for a family brunch. We were all coming in from out-of-town for a family gathering and I found this place on the internet. The staff was very friendly and helpful, added more place settings quickly and with no fuss when we had a few extras join us, and the food was fresh and well... More

Sitting at the bar looking out at the water as the sun set over the small lake at the Washingtonian, drinking a nice pale ale and having a terrific Cobb Salad with warm chicken and freshly cut avocado--what's wrong with that? Actually, not much. So you might want to try it. Nice atmosphere, and lots of folks walking by, enjoying... More
