“Good atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

While I did not have the time to eat at this bistro, the menu certainly looked good. I had a drink and felt very comfortable in a great atmosphere. I could also tell that others were enjoying the night. The prices of the drinks are quite expensive though.

“Great French Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Starting with its fresh modern decor, it just gets better. The food has a wide variety of French food choices from onion soup, escargot and duck liver pate to beef bourguignon, crepes au poitiron and sea scallops provencale. The dishes have an excellent presentation. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. Service is excellent. Make reservations or you won't get in. I will come again and again.

“Awesome.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Sampled many dishes. Excellent quality, service and presentation. Love the dessert sampler, didn't love the duck liver pate. Eat here. Again, Trip Advisor with the word requirement. Sometime a simple short review is best. Why force me to write 100 words?

We went for Sunday Brunch on the last day of trip and it was wonderful. The waiter and manager were both great. We will visit again on our next trip to DC
