The staff was notified that morning. Nonetheless, the staff and kitchen performed their duties and greeted guests with a smile and very good service. I've enjoyed Cafe Deluxe over the years and I'm sorry they will no longer be in the Bethesda community.

I understand having to make a business decision but not giving the staff more that 48 hours notice. Heartless management.

And the food was good, too!

We were sat promptly at the time of our reservation. Enjoyed an interesting salad and the salmon sandwich. Service was attentive. Made it to the movie. We were very satisfied.

The food quality was less good than what I do on my own. The fried egg on my son’s burger was burnt on the bottom. This used to be a regular spot for us, but it’s now completely out of the rotation given this last experience. You’re better off going to Silver or LPQ or even five guys if you want burgers.

Our server went above and beyond. Brought out a sundae with a candle for her, and was very sweet. The food was great, and came out quickly. The noise was fine, and frankly we were probably the loudest table.

Our waitress was prompt as well but there was a slight language barrier, but we tried to speak slowly and that worked out fine. We had a bit of an issue at payment because 2 of us had promotional items on our Dining Cards but we were combining the bill. Fortunately Cameron (the Manager?) was there and he was able to figure it out. All in all an excellent dining experience as always.

If you have no dietary requirements then this place is good. Otherwise it can feel frustrating.

The ambiance was great. Two of us were disappointed with the steak frites order. The meat was heavily spiced. We all agreed we would recommend Cafe Deluxe to friends , and we all will certainly return

And, we are never hurried from our table, though some noisy kids nearby helped us finish up a little quicker than we might otherwise.

The tuna melt was cold and the cheese had been sitting under the warming light for at least 10 minutes. The cheese seemed like a shoe tongue. The Greek Salad was nothing special. The corn tortillas in the fish tacos were raw/undercooked. The tuna in the nicoise salad and the fish tacos was of a poor quality. We didn't tell the staff because it was Christmas Eve and it wasn't the waitress fault. We didn't have enough time to wait for anything to be fixed due to our own time constraints.

The menu is just so so. Nothing new, nothing really Great! This location is particularly small. The tables are crowed together with no real pathway to table in the middle. They really need to do a better set up of tables! Wish they would step it up a few notches!

I have eaten there twice before this within the last several months and the service was much better then.

I don't know what would help, but I will be reluctant to go again as a result.

While 3 of us ate, the 4th took 15 minutes to correct. We ordered 4 coffees. When they were served, they were all lukewarm warm. The server said that he would make a new pot. When they were reserved they were still lukewarm. Overall, a very disappointing experience.
