We came by late in the evening looking for something small to eat. We had foie gras, salmon tartare and a couple of desserts. The servers were busy, and very helpful. They had some quick wine suggestions when asked, and they were excellent. Wonderful food...More

Having read a local restaurant critic's rave reviews for this place, we were expecting something more than the pedestrian renderings of classic French bistro dishes that appeared on our plates. My starter, salmon tartar with avocado, was fine, but there was nothing in its presentation...More

La Piquette is a small bistro in a nice residential area of the District. The noise level is daunting when they are busy, but the food is worth it. The skate was delicious, as was a beet salad. Service was good and the prices are...More

We go to La Piquette every couple of months, and whenever we do, we wonder why we don't go more often. The extensive, varied, and regularly changing menu always offers a number of delicious dishes -- ones not always easy to find in Washington. We...More

Hello, We go to both 2Amys and La Piquette frequently. Basically any side street (not Wisconsin Ave. or the 'business' district of Macomb St.), we've found parking. You just have to drive around. Also, the new Giant Food... More
