Gem in Bethesda
A delightful restaurant with wonderful ambiance. The food is consistently delicious and the service excellent. Every time I have dined there the owner has greeted us warmly and
and follows up throughout the evening making sure our every need has been satisfied. In this day and age you rarely find this !

Lovely Bethesda Gem
Friendly helpful and gracious service. Nice wine selection. Go with Le Vieux Logis specialties, while I enjoyed my shrimp scampi,the winner was my daughter's dover sole meuniere. She had never had sole before, the prep, presentation and taste was divine. We also enjoyed the lobster bisque which the restaurant graciously let us split. We also split a wonderful dessert - a chocolate cake which I did not catch the name.

Le Vieux Logis is a fine old mainstay of Bethesda. Very traditional decor, quite good, if not spectacular, French food. good wines, excellent service. I'd go back, but maybe not on a Saturday night when it's crowded and the closely-spaced tables hem one in. Nevertheless, a pleasant dining experience.

It had been several years since we had eaten at Le Vieux Logis, so decided to try it for a birthday dinner. We were very happy with our decision -- the owner Diane was gracious and welcoming, as were all the servers. The calf's liver was a special treat for my husband -- he rarely finds it on a menu and often, when he does try it, it's under-whelming. This prep was perfect. I enjoyed my soft shell crabs as well. The staff was very helpful in encouraging our selection of appetizers and entrees. We will definitely go back to Le Vieux Logis much more often.

Returning to an old friend.
We came here for my Dad's birthday, and everyone was very nice. The server was a little impatient with my elderly parents, but generally the service was good, although we waited a long time for the check. My Dad had the vegetable plate which he loved, and Mom and I had the soft shell crab special which was very fresh and perfectly cooked. They brought my dad a divine complementary chocolate mousse cake for dessert (yum!!!). All in all, this restaurant was much better than we expected, and we will will be back.

This restaurant has been around awhile, and the food is better than ever. It is a small restaurant,not for children, but for a special occasion. The service is wonderful and the owner is there the whole time, I will go back there again.

French as good as France
Excellent quiet atmosphere at the top of Bethesda. A menu with some of the best French classics and a couple of specials as well. Super courteous and attentive (without being overbearing) service. Go there again - no question; yes!

We visited Le Vieux last weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was our first visit to Le Vieux and it turned out to be just perfect. Cozy pillows on a comfy bench at a quiet table in the corner was our welcome and created the perfect mood for our event. We were greeted with warm smiles and a complimentary cheese and nut dish to accompany the tasty array of breads in a basket. Great food, we enjoyed a filet mignon served with three separate sauces, all delicious, and the scallops are a must try. One of my favorite memories: the delicious cookies that were provided to compliment dessert! A token generously provided to us to aid in the celebration. We highly recommend Le Vieux and encourage you to consider a visit. So worthwhile!

We visited Le Vieux Logis in Bethesda, MD and, as before, our meals were outstanding. Among my many favorite dishes there, I think my very favorite starter is the Baked Oysters served in a champagne sauce with caviar although their signature appetizer of Danish Herring is delicious as well. Actually, all of the meals I have ever had there are cooked and presented to perfection whether it be the Tuesday special of Fish and Chips “Copenhagen Style” made with a lightly breaded Icelandic Cod, their classic Dover Sole or their Australian Lamb Chops grilled with a fresh tarragon sauce.
This, together with the warm, friendly and attentive staff make it more than a meal. It is a dining event.
Please try it yourselves. You will always be WELCOME!

Denmark, Meet France
An unusual and excellent fusion of flavors. The Danish Herring is excellent - truly top notch - as good as you could get in Nyhaven / Copenhagen. Everything else we had was also great. Almost a chez francois feeling in bethesda. Wish I had visited long ago - definitely moving into our rotation of usual spots!

Fabulous food, unbelievable service
I have been to this restaurant many times, but this last week we went with old friends and were so touched by how pleasant every single person there was. It is such a warm and gracious restaurant where they truly do treat you like family as they feed you completely delicious food. Definitely one of my all-time favorite dining experiences.

The beet salad, soft shell crabs, and ruby red trout were great! First time ever I didn't have the liver, which also is great! Sarah is the most wonderful server--has good suggestions, paces the meal well, and makes the dining experience extra special. The pour at the restaurant's bar is very generous, and results in a DIVINE Stoli martini. Great neighborhood spot with top notch food, service and ambience. Convenient valet parking on site makes this a slam dunk!

A lovely dining experience
We felt like we had been welcomed into someone's home. The service was so gentle, the food was delicious (we all had the same entree--a wonderful veal dish), and a nice birthday dessert to top it off!

Le Vieux Logis in Bethesda
This restaurant has a very amiable owner and nice staff. Its fairly small, very colorful, cozy and quiet, although there is a pleasant atmosphere of gaiety and celebration. Patronized by older generations, this is a nice place to relax after a hard days work with a friend. Conversation is easy as one doesn't have to yell to make oneself heard. Main courses, including wonderful lamb chops and excellent trout, are very well prepared and delicious. Clams Casino were rubbery, but oysters were good. I would have expected some dessert crepes, but don't remember seeing any on the menu. Reasonably priced, though not cheap by any means, I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys French cuisine, a full bar and a quiet, cheering evening. 4 stars!

Great little gem in Bethesda!
I LOVE this place! The atmosphere is quaint and cozy, the staff is very nice and friendly, it's one of the few places where you can go and actually have a conversation with the people at your table without having to shout all evening. The food is spectacular here. I had the new seasonal fall salad that had arugula, prosciutto, & fresh figs, and for dinner I had the lamb chops that were perfectly seasoned and cooked!! For dessert I had the fruit tart which was just scrumptious, and they have delicious coffee here as well. This is one of the few remaining non-chain restaurants around & I think the owner really does an excellent job! I like supporting small businesses whenever I can, & this place is at the top of my list.

A Favorite with Romantic Buzz
HOW DOES SHE DO IT? Diana teases me with specialties from Denmark yet also offers French classics. She imports her Danish Herring and serves my favorite appetizer along with ice-cold Akavit in frosted glasses. I decide to not dwell on the Nordic specialities but choose as a main course the Duck a l'orange. My companions swoon over their cold Oysters followed by a filet mignon sauteed with Madeira. Neighboring diners introduce themselves and repeat the sounds of pleasure and laughter coming from our table. Suddenly the secret becomes clear: This is NOT simply your ordinary restaurant but is rather a nightly dining "happening," a combination of warmth and richly delightful and tasty highlights all orchestrated by Diana and her amazing staff!

La Vieux Logis always offers a special evening, with delicious food, attentive service, and charming surroundings. It's also the rare French restaurant whose prices are reasonable.

Dependably a nice meal
La Vieux Logis is the rare small, neighborhood restaurant that has atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food, and a quiet spot, so you can actually have a conversation with your dinner companion. This is one of my favorite local restaurants.

Took a friend and her daughter for a birthday celebration. We had wonderful food, a fun time, and a surprise ice cream desert with a candle on it. Birthday girl thoroughly enjoyed her first time at the restaurant.
