“Duck a L'orange!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Two of us went here for lunch recently since we've always heard good things about this restaurant. We loved the warm, whole baguette that is given at the start and we ordered a few other appetizers as well. The French onion soup is delicious - I enjoyed it more than at another well-known country French restaurant in the Washington, D.C. area. The soup had a slight sweetness to it and I will definitely order this again. We also ordered a caesar salad and escargots - both were fine but I've had better at other places. For the entrees we ordered the Duck a'Lorange and Trout Almondine. We enjoyed the trout but the Duck a L'orange is what I'll come back for next time! They give you half a duck which is cooked to perfection. It's accompanied with a delicious sauce that is not overpowering and the duck didn't have too much fat on it like at some other places. The next time I come here I'll definitely get the duck and the French onion soup!

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Wide variety of French food. Waiter was extremely knowledgeable about menu and wines. We had a large group and he was on top of everything.

“Very good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Very excellent service. We took our parents here for their anniversary and the restaurant sent out complimentary glasses of champagne for the table. The steak and frites are well executed. Fish dishes, appetizers, salads, and desserts also were all well done. Good quality food and very prompt service.

“used to be great, not so much any more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

this used to be my favorite restaurant in bethesda. now, not so much. used to love the scallops -- last two times the dish was not what was described on the menu, and very poor. little taste and overcooked. Steak dishes are very mediocre. will only go for lunch now...
