The cafe is in the Willard Hotel.
I would not miss the lobby of the Willard. Not necessary to actually eat there.

we went for a pre-theater dinner with grandparent and children, the service was very slow and after 1.5 hours we got our main course in time to dash out to the theater missing the opportunity to order dessert.

We were seated in a corner instead of a nicer central area, where there were open tables.

Service was excellent, food was creative, well presented and fresh. Great location but the ambiance was rather sterile. One major turn off was that we were seated next to a service buffet table where they had a baby booster seat nestled among the clean wine glasses...

Fabulous from start to finish!! We went to Cafe Du Parc last week to celebrate my birthday and it could not have been better. Food was flavorful and delicious. The manager gave me complimentary dessert to celebrate my birthday! I can’t wait to go again!!
