“Good French cuisine at reasonable prices”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

We came upon this fine small restaurant in the Adams-Morgan neighborhood while visiting Washington, D.C. The atmosphere is welcoming: attractive amateur murals, candlelight, friendly staff. The food was well-prepared, tasty, and a real bargain. My roast lamb plate had five big chops and excellent sauce. At just over $20., this would be hard to replicate anywhere else in the city. My wife's fish was similarly good--as were the desserts. I have severe problems with black pepper--a nuisance as it is so widely used--but the chef was completely agreeable about fixing my lamb without using any. Fourchette is quiet and relaxing, but it has the added benefit of being located in one of the most fun-loving areas in the District. After dinner, check out the numerous clubs and boutiques along 18th Street. Really good food, and a great night out.

“Simple Good French Food”
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”
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!!”
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”
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
