“Large group dinner was fabulous”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

I arranged a dinner for a dozen people and everyone raved about the food and service. We ordered off the menu so had a good sample of the offerings. Mussels, steak and frites were popular and highly recommended

“Experiencing the Best of DC”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Brasserie Beck is a Belgian with a French fusion restaurant within walking distance from the Four Points by Sheraton. Went there for a late dinner, enjoyed the Sea Bass filet, grilled to perfection! it was seasoned, olive oil and cilantro, great flavors. Eat with caution as there are some bones on the fish. The reason is a few are left on the fish when cooking as it adds flavor (bones releases its own oils for flavor). The head is shopped off but tail is kept in place. Don't recall name of vegetable, but is a spinach like, with a sour taste. My preference is red wine, so I paired it with a Pinot Noir, It was light, healthy and delicious. The dish is $32.

“Fabulous Slice of Europe found in DC”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant has some of the best mussels in Washington DC. The preparation options are unsurpassed. The menu has a variety of highlights on both meat and seafood sides of the menu. Wienerschnitzel rivals anything I had in Vienna. The wait staff are knowledgeable, friendly and spot on with recommendations, based upon your like and dislikes. The decor is lovely, fantastic wine and beer choices, heavenly desserts, what more could one ask? You truly feel as if you are in the middle of Europe. Fabulous downtown dining experience.

“Great service, delicious mussels”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

I ate here for a work lunch, so while I can't speak to value for money, I can definitely say something about the food - the ahi burger, and mussels (I had the thai curry) and french fries are incredible- they do a fantastic job on classics and unique dishes. The service was outstanding, attentive but not overbearing. It's quite a 'suits' place at lunch time, with a lot of buzz and chatter, but the atmosphere is great. What a treat!

“One of my DC faves”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This place is one of my favorite spots in DC. The food is phenomenal. If you go, I would reccommend the mussels (any of them) and the charcuterie board as musts. They also make a mean French 75 or have ample beers on their lists. On top of that, the service is outstanding. The waiters are extremely knowledgable about the encyclopedia they call a beer list. They are attentive, not annoying and make great suggestions. The atmosphere adds to the experience in that it's relaxed and loud, hardly the stuffiness you get at some DC restaurants. Love, love, love it here.
