We were attracted by the atmosphere (white table cloth bistro look) and the menu (Intereresting choice of sandwiches or full entrees for dinner) but the food and service were a disappointment. The salads were under dressed but we got tired of waitng for our server (Josh) and ate them anyway. The pizza was OK and my husband loved his chicken pot pie but the side dish of potatoes was bland. The manager eventually stopped by the table and broght him some sauce that helped--no sign of our waiter. This place seems to have potential but overall was an average experience.

This is a good resturant with average prices. Our service has always been great and love dining outdoors when available.

This is a great dining choice for downtown Bethesda which is literally a 15 second walk from the public parking garage and three blocks from the Metro station. Cafe Deluxe has a seasonally changing menu with fresh gourmet food items that appeal to a wide variety of palates. Whether you just want some comfort food with their amazing mac n cheese, burgers, and pizzas, or whether you branch out to the more adventuresome entrees, seafood specials, and salads, everything is well executed and presented beautifully. Service is consistently good at this location and the restaurant has a clean modern atmosphere that is bustling with activity during lunch and dinner. A limited number of tables is available outside and they also have a small bar as well. I've come back to Cafe Deluxe many times and I've yet to have a bad meal there. Lots of choices, consistently good food and service, and a great atmosphere for a date, a business meal, or just taking the family out. And yes, they will even bring crayons for your kids to color.

The food is reliable, service is very good. You can get a good burger, or pasta dish, or meatloaf, so the choices are fairly diverse. if you have kids, it is definitely a family-friendly restaurant, but they do keep the kids out of the bar, which I appreciate.

Lots of options from salads, entrees, sandwiches. Great kid friendly menu. Biuce bar area with TVs for sports watching, which is separate from dining area. Reasonable prices. Have a frequent dining card program with nice rewards. Centrally located in trendy downtown Bethesda.
