Sunday, May 13, 2018
Had a reservation for 7:30 but wasn’t seated until 8:15. They were apologetic, but the wait was very disappointing
Excellent, as always. We are regulars and never have a bad meal here.
Went here for Easter Brunch with 5 in our party. Seated right on time and was well looked after on a very busy Sunday afternoon.
We had Easter brunch with a group of 7 family members. The restaurant was quite crowded, but we had reservations and got a quiet table downstairs. We all enjoyed the variety and creativity of brunch entrees and cocktails. Service was very good.
Food was good but portion is small. I had Lobster Waffle.
We were at BToo for Easter brunch. It was quite busy, but our server and the kitchen staff did a great job.
They were out of Mussels, our first choice for dinner. Then we were told they were out of duck, our second choice and out of the lobster mac and cheese. It was disappointing as this was a special occasion for all of us.
Delicious food. If you are looking for some traditional Belgian dishes then this is the place. Owners were present and stopped by the table which says a lot. Well worth the money.
One of the best brunches anywhere. This place has beautiful ambiance and beautiful people running it. The waitresses are always super attentive and warm. I absolutely love the grilled cheese & tomato soup. Best bacon!!! GO there
Back for More
Sunday brunch at recommendation of hotel concierge....back the very next day for breakfast.
Much more comfortable during the week, lounging on a couch instead of a cramped 2-top. But, the noise and crowd didn't stop us from coming back.
Chocolate crossiant. Heavenly.
Good atmosphere. Bustling energy in the place. The tortellini was very good. The waffle dishes were interesting. The chicken was very boring. The mussel pots were flying off the shelves.... next time. The prices were high for the quantity provided.
The restaurant was accommodating for our large group, and my friends appreciated a space to enjoy each other’s company. The service was overall friendly but did not provide our group much attention. We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation because they were waiting for our full group to be there, even though our table was ready and the majority of the group was there. They asked us to sit at the bar to wait for our group but didn’t offer us anything while we waited. When we did sit around 7:45, we didn’t receive drinks or order until 8:30. Most food was great. My entree of pork chop was disappointing and overly salty; I felt like I was given a slab of meat, where the sides were a spoonful of vegetables buried under the meat. I could only manage a few bites and took the rest home. Did not feel like it was worth $28. Luckily there was bread to build a meal. Others in my group had better luck. The scallops and seafood dishes looked and tasted great. Very impressed with the abundance in the pot of muscles. The desserts were decadent, delicious, and generous. The ambiance made it feel like I was in a posh home.
We found the chicken in the chicken and waffles dish a bit bland, buy the eggs in a waffle were delicious! Cocktails were a bit small.
Great place for brunch! The Bloody Marys and the coffee are both strong. And the doffle, is a great hybrid doughnut/waffle. The eggs Benedict with smoked salmon is one of the best, especially with the added asparagus. Or if you want something heartier, try a lamb burger or some mussels
First time I had eaten here but really enjoyed the diverse menu and extensive beer menu. It was a lovely cozy atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful.
The service was quick and the food was great. I had the gluten free Brussels waffle with sugar and it was fluffy and buttery , like I like my waffles to be. I also added the egg white omelette . I usually like for my eggs to be cooked hard then add in the ingredients but it was slightly soft/hard cooked eggs , so I guess medium cooked . Overall the omelette was ok. My boyfriend had the Liege waffle I believe . The caramelized pears were a great accompaniment to the waffle. And he had a side of scrambled eggs..which were of standard quality. The waffles are worth the visit here. I’ll come back for that! :)
Very disappointed with the service and how we were treated. Have been to Btoo for HH and was really looking forward to brunch, mainly to try one of their waffles. Me and a group of my friends went on Sunday and were seated about 25 minutes after the 1pm time. We weren't going to let that affect us, but when the service didn't get better we were let down.
- One friend found a bone in her lamb burger. This was foremost not acceptable as this could have broken a tooth or done worse. When brought to our waiters attention, he didn't even apologize only explained that it happens sometimes and they will make another. Thankfully it was taken off our bill, but only because another friend spoke up. We were good sports about it all. Though, my friend sadly went hungry because she didn't trust the food then.
- Another friend found egg shells in her poached egg. Another strike right there. We know the place was busy, but this is the type of thing that can lead to major problems in the future.
- While finishing some of the food, took a small break and the waiter without asking was already picking it up to take away. Please note, this did not happen from the busboy. He asked and was great.
- The one good thing were the waffles that thankfully were wonderful. It was probably the number one reason to go.
As for the waiter, he didn't seem to care for our whole group the minute we even sat down. From the time of the bone being found, egg shells in the pouched egg, and not knowing when certain drinks were available, he was less and less caring about making sure our experience was going well. It seemed like we had done something even though it was everything going wrong from the restaurants end. At one point, he disappeared (avoiding us) for a good 30 minutes. A couple of us still wanted to at least get another drink, but at this point we were ready to go and didn't want to waste any more of our money. We saw him eventually for the check, but that's about it.
My friend bit a piece of metal that was in his mussels, he almost broke his teeth! It was the piece of metal used to seal the bag of mussels. The Manager dealt with the issue very well but still, it was an unpleasant experience. My food was good and the service as well.
Wonderful birthday dinner her on Friday. My Dover Sole Meuniere was delicious, as was my husband's beef short ribs, and the Eden Chocolate dessert was sublime. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful when we needed it. All was wonderful, except for the two-top table that was too small for all the things that had to go on it - an inch more in all directions would have been welcome, or at least a stand for the ice bucket for our wine. It took up way too much space on the small table.
Went to dinner with a group of 12 people. The service staff was wonderful and patient. The food itself was all great and came out promptly after ordering considering how many of us there were. The beer and wine selection is great. I will warn that if you're looking for an inexpensive group option this may not be the right place for you. The rabbit stew & short rib stew were table favorites, the tartare as a starter was great and a generous portion. We also started with orders of frites for the table which came out quickly to a hungry table.
enjoyed it a lot — service and atmosphere were warm and welcoming.
Cornbread and pulled pork waffles were very yummy. Cool atmosphere.
Menu is creative. Service was excellent. Tartare was fresh and distinctive. Mussels were excellent. Will go back again.
Eclectic menu with a great beer menu and very good service.
I never like it when there are fake votive candles at a Bistro. Otherwise this place was fine. The service was very sweet and friendly. It was a bit harried for a Sunday 1 p.m. brunch meal..
Be sure you share the mussels order. They were gigantic and plentiful.
Nice enough place.
I was with a larger group (6) and we were excited B Too could accommodate us for a spur of the moment dinner. However, the experience left much to be desired. The food was disappointing - some dishes were cold, some over-cooked, the highly recommended mussels were inedible. I don't think anyone finished their meal, I only had a few bites of mine. I was surprised, when the server came to take the plates that she didn't ask if anything was wrong given the fact that so little food was consumed. That said, our server was polite and attentive, which is one reason we decided not to initially complain about the food. Since most of us didn't eat our meals, we ordered a dessert, which arrived cold, hard and stale. When the check came, the only thing we requested was that the dessert, which also remained unconsumed, be removed from the bill. The server seemed totally taken aback by the request and conferred with her manager before removing the charge from the bill. I was also surprised, since we were clearly displeased with our meal that the manager did not come by the table to check on our experience. As indicated on the menu, a 20% gratuity was included. On our way out of the restaurant, I mentioned our disappointment to the manager who was very nice and offered to comp us an appetizer on our next trip in. Unfortunately, I don't think I will be returning to B Too.
eclectic ambiance, good traditional Belgium food, wonderful presentation of food
I took a friend to lunch for her birthday because she was drawn to the prix fixe lunch menu but both of us ordered off the regular menu. Her mussels, which I sampled, were excellent, among the best I've ever eaten, and my roasted salmon sandwich was perfectly prepared. Desserts were wonderful. The Belgian waffle with strawberries came with a surprising little glass of Belgian chocolate for dribbling. I had been here once before with a larger group in the evening, when it was considerably more crowded and noisy than at 1 PM, with only a couple of tables of businessmen competing. But both times the food and service were excellent.
Would recommend this restaurant to anyone! Was by far the most impeccable service and food that we had while in DC. Great for groups or just for a date, an amazing ambiance and menu. Definitely will be going back.
Great dinner with friends. My only complaint was that it was a bit too hot in the restaurant, but that was probably because we were seated right next to the open kitchen.
B too is always a good experience!
The service was great and the waffles were to die for. I've never had such a light and airy waffle, and their quiche was fabulous with puffed pastry and a perfectly dressed salad. I will be back!
A very cool vibe and the tables with couches were a great touch! The food was spectacular with plenty of options for everyone.
Honestly the brunch alcohol was bad, but the bacon and chicken were good. Service was excellent.
Went here on a whim to avoid boring hotel food. Found it to be nice and the food was good [though I limited my choices to less heavy offerings- not many btw] and so it was ok. Pleasant staff but experience was rushed like a cheap chinese restaurant.
Solid brunch, but they were out of several key items, including bacon and the chicken and waffles
Everything was fantastic! We will definitely return. Chicken and waffles had just the right spice with the jalapenos. Cornbread waffles and pulled pork was delicious!
We were delighted to discover B Too as an open-early (ish - 1000) brunch option in the city! Snagged a reservation for 5 for right as they opened, so we were greeted and seated promptly. The servers were attentive right away, but as the restaurant filled it became harder to get someone 'round. That said, we really only had to ask for coffee/water refills once - they usually were passing us frequently and offering refills. The food is hearty and interesting - the green eggs mcwaffle was a big hit, and the brussels sprouts are divine. The Flemish stew was fairly flavorless though, which was the second disappointment of the morning - the first was the "doffle" (doughnut-waffle) that we ordered early to appease the children's appetite while we waited. I don't know what I expected, but the dough in the doffle was very heavy, and the ratio of sugar to dough seemed a bit off. Basically, a heavy, chewy, fried object.
However, the many menu options and fun experience overall will have us coming back!
Their waffles are the best! I usually go with the savory waffles paired with a side of brussel sprouts, however the sweet options are just as good.
Desserts are the best! I would recommend going there to eat their delicious dopples and chocolate eden. The rest of the food is average, but the desserts are really great.
