A Booth is the way to go - noise high. We were given Lunch Menu's for dinner at first. Service was snappy and appreciated. Food - two sea bass very good indeed. The Lamb Shank Special - hmm, just okay, needed salt! Meat was very tender and moist, the orzo base tastey, fresh baked bread in a bag nice. Wine list not cheap but then again the place thinks it's Paris. We liked it but really, not a barn burner. We'll try another eatery - after all Betheda has some 270 places to chow down. Do go and try it though and next time we'll sample something else. There are metered lots within a block and a half to park and they did have valet for $7. Oh, the bar was packed!

Always a good meal with friendly service (occasionally a bit slow). Try the daily special. The steak frites is my favorite. A nice French bistro!

Its decent french food fare.. but thats about all. Much better french food establishments to choose from. Plus the fries used to be quite good but then they went and changed them - not a good move.

This is the only one in the DC area, so you must at least give it a try. The location is perfect (lots of other shopping, restaurants, biking, etc), and the restaurant atmosphere is perfect. Though the food was great but not as amazing as I had expected, this was the only reason I gave 4/5 stars.
