  • Kurtis S.Walter is the best bartender in town!

    55555 by Kurtis S.

  • Diana GLike a Parisian bistro out of a fantasy without feeling cloyingly on-the-nose/cookie cutter. The food delicious and rich, the wine lovely, the servers equally friendly, knowledgeable, and posh.

    55555 by Diana G

  • Masha T.Great food and great service. Looks like Pastis in NYC. I tried foie gras and lamb shank - both amazing. Beef Bourguignon was so-so, but I would definitely come back to try other dishes.

  • Bill F.Love it here. Wait staff is on. One complaint is the hostess station is never smiling or never seem nice. 3rd time here and the lead hostess (dark hair) looks so unhappy. Btw, onion soup - love. :)

  • Wilson A.The brunch is everything you could want and more. Get the pastry basket. Bacon is otherworldly good, and you get a ton.

  • Nour K.Great ambiance. Parisian feel brasserie on 14th but the hostesses are annoying. Even if the restaurant is empty it seems that there is always a standard 20 mns wait!Otherwise the terrasse is beautiful

  • Ryan K.Waiter a bit pushy to do dinner not just drinks and snacks. Otherwise quite lovely with great cheese/bread. On the expensive side.

  • Kathryn DFood is 5 stars, service is 2 stars. They brought out our apps and entrees at the same time, water was not refilled, and drink orders were lost. Will still come back, though - delicious.

  • Andrea R.We put our name in at 7:30 and were told that we'd receive a text in approx an hour. Three hours later no text, and they claimed we never put in our names. Awful customer service.

  • Mary H.Service here is the best I've ever had and being with a foodie for 6.5 years that is saying something. The mussels are incredibly tender, but unfortunately other than that the food is very mediocre.

  • Adam F.If its nice outside try and get a table on the q street side. Steak frites is delicious but terrible for you. So many frites!

  • Danielle A.Second visit cleared disappointment from first... The Duck terrine and mussels were excellent and the pastry basket so fresh. I also love the fact that they make doggie biscuits for visiting pups.
