An overwhelming neighborhood favorite for Belgian bistro food--famous for French quality and German quantity. Normally totally jammed to the point of discomfort but pretty quiet on a mid-August Thursday. First rate mussels in various versions, a solid beef stew simmered in beer, and a super-fancy stuffed trout that tasted great but looked like a fat polish sausage In brown gravy.... More

this is you typical french bistro place. You enter and recognize picture of tintin of the wall. The place is kind of narrow and table are bit too close too each other but the staff and food make up or it. Their steak frite and moules which I had several times are top notch. Nice wine list.

I got the lobster burger with sweep potato fries and my boyfriend ordered eggs Benedict ...we decided to share. The food, drinks and service were great. Sadly there was no room for dessert, we did get a cappuccino each ...and those weren't bad either :-). Would defiantly go again to try some of the other menu options!

This is a wonderful restaurant which we have frequented several times. Every time we came out feeling wanting to return again. This time around we felt slightly different - the mussels were not all that great and the Escargot did not taste as good and delicious as in the past. While the restaurant was pretty crowded, something usual, perhaps there... More

This cozy neighborhood restaurant filled up quickly on Saturday afternoon and now I know why: the food and the service are very good. I met two of my friends who have tried other eateries in the immediate area, so this was a first for all of us. All plates were cleaned and nothing left behind when we departed this restaurant....

This is a busy restaurant and it is why it is so charming! The owner is always very friendly and once you get started you are seduced by the Belgian/French menu. The food is excellent, service is efficient and kind. The whole is a little pricey but you will not regret it.

We come here often, after discovering it about 2-3 years ago. It never disappoints. The moules & frites are some of the best I've had anywhere, to include in Belgium. But the other dishes are also wonderful. Recommend the tuna tartare, the onion soup, and the beet salad. Teenager recommends the steak frites! The place is loud, but that's DC.... More

My wife and I ordered typical Belgian fare. I had the "cabonnade Flammande" with pommes frites and it was as if I was transported back to Brussels! The beef was very tender and the

Met some friends here for an early Friday dinner. Had to go with the Mussels; Moules Marinières: Steamed Mussels (Origin: Blue Bay) served with Belgian Fries. Moules marinières with a garlic white wine sauce. Very good. Not the best I've ever had but good. Byron, our server was great. Friendly, fast and responsive. We got there at 5:45...but 6:15 the...
