Was great when new, but now it seems like a restaurant trying to cash in on being good in the past. Portions are too big, or you can easily split an order of Mussels. Good quality mussels for sure.

I have really enjoyed going to B Too in the past, which is why I brought my family here for a special event. When we arrived for our reservation for 7 people, our table wasn't ready, and it didn't appear the restaurant knew what to do with us. Once we were seated we had a rotating cast of waiters which lead to an appetizer being forgotten, few water refills, and not great service. It was really a shame because I've had good experiences in the past. Unfortunately I don't think I will be recommending this restaurant for a large party again.

The menu was creative and well organized. That said, I was curious about some of the dishes and especially the snacks/bites and appetizers. Our waiter was not helpful to us and in fact seemed to rush us the entire dinner. This hurried effect began when he asked us our drink order. The drink menu was extensive and we were only handed one. My husband and son both wanted beer and needed to process the several pages. They tried to ask questions about the regional Belgian, German and French beers only to cut off by the waiter. He hovered over me for an order once I got a chance to look at it. When it came to ordering the food, he did the same thing. Instead of engaging in a conversation, his responses to my curious questions were abrupt although made with a charismatic smile, and only told us what to order without a reason or allowing me to follow-up. His service was very disconcerting and I would not recommend the restaurant, although the food was satisfying.

It was Mother's Day, so we didn't expect the service to be very good and it wasn't. We were hoping the food would make up for it, but it did not. The ambiance is very nice and was the best thing about the restaurant. The food looked good but was lacking in flavor. The best thing they had was the Doffle (part donut part waffle). The eggs weren't very good, neither were the brussels and hash browns. We didn't try the waffles which did look very good.

Frantic!

We like B Too because it is usually a calm place to dine where you can have a conversation with your friends. I realize this was Mother's Day, but our group felt rushed the whole time and the both the kitchen and the wait staff were frantic. This led to a predictably unpleasant experience. The food was great, but we felt they were trying to get us out as soon as possible. I hope this is an isolated event.

A tremendous meal, the menu was very well designed with a lot of interesting looking dishes. Service was outstanding and made a special occasion very special indeed. They were great with the children and I especially enjoyed the selection of Belgian beers. One of the best restaurants I've been in the US. Contemporary European cuisine delivered in a modern but welcoming atmosphere

My husband and I went to B Too on a Saturday morning around 11am. We had our ESA (emotional suppport animal) with us - as we take him everywhere, and they had great accommodations for us to ensure we were ALL comfortable.
The food was delicious!! We started with two Mexican lattes and got a doffle sandwich as well as the brûléed waffle, both of which I would highly recommend. My husband and I shared the meals and discussed adding another “Entreé”. The server must have overheard us talking as he walked by, because he stopped by the table asking if we wanted to add another dish (which we did) and it was out in under 5 minutes!
The entire experience was impeccable and I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone that enjoys trying new things!

This is one of my favorite places to eat in DC. The beers are amazing, there's something for everyone to eat here (savory and sweet options) and the staff is lovely. Their croissants are seriously amazing and if I had no self control that's all I'd eat; just a big plate of croissants and a beer.

Normally I do not reviews but for B Too I like to make an exception. Always looking for, and finally at our 7th visit to the US we found a restaurant where a very extensive variation of ingredients is brought together in delicious dishes. Ideal prepared and perfectly seasoned. Staff were friendly and helpful .
In combination with a wide range of carefully selected top wines, this was our best culinary experience ever in the States. Some will place it in the higher price range, but I know that for this quality in Europe at least you will pay a double price. We will visit it again every time when we come back in Washington.
