“Simple Good French Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

it feels very authentic; they don't have a lot of choices, so you know the food is fresh; service is very good and they will happily speak French with you. Always a nice place to go.

“Mainstay French bistro in Adams Morgan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

This established restaurant continues to serve solid French bistro food. The waiters also continue their Gallic rudeness. Right now street construction makes it a little difficult to get to, but it's worth the effort.

“Well above average, excellent value, authentic French cuisine!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Excellent meal! Food was nicely prepared, wine selection ample and varied, service superb! Only complaint would be the white bread, which was not fresh, and reminded one of a cheap hamburger bun. Bread excepted the food was otherwise outstanding!

“Best deal in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

Looking for a quiet lunch in DC, hubby and I went to La Fourchette - already a favorite for dinner. We shared my perfect Salade Nicoise and his 3-course special, with 3-4 choices for each course. His choice: lobster bisque (a very good version), and one of the best little filet mignons ever, perfectly cooked, great sauce with roasted potato and fresh, lightly cooked veggies, followed by a heavenly 'floating island' -- the whole special costing $10.99!! All this and quiet, too, with a soft French soundtrack in the background. Definitely worth a cab ride to Adams Morgan to escape over-priced, crowded downtown.la

“Nice French bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

We were taken to this restaurant by local friends, and we enjoyed the meal very much.I had the cassoulet, which was excellently prepared and very tasty. My wife had the medallions of pork and liked it a lot. The place was very casual and, even when all the tables were filled, the noise level was relatively low and we were able to talk.
