I love this restaurant but what made it a memory was the dessert. Exquisite
We dined outside on a perfect evening after having a Matini at the historic Red Robin Bar. The Food and service were all first class
Server was graat. Food was good.
Martini was laughably small
Poor service, food was ok, great outdoor atmosphere I just wish service was better.
A nice outdoor setting, feeling like a Parisian cafe. The salmon Eggs Benedict were lovely and the hash browns wonderful; the Belgian waffle was luxurious and delicious. They made wonderful espresso drinks, both cold and hot. Although the servers were switching shifts while we were there, they kept it fairly seamless. We enjoyed it and would return.
Perfect for our post theater group!! The location (close to Warner), the ambience of the restaurant , the impeccable service and array of the Bistro food (even for picky eaters) made for a perfect end to the evening.
Six of us got together for dinner at Cafe du Parc. The service was outstanding; the food was delicious and the outdoor cafe atmosphere was just what we needed. Fun and satisfying evening!
We dined outside and the noise rating is for the outdoor seating. The menu had soo many intriguing and great options that we had a tough time coming to a decision. Everyone had an amazing meal and we highly recommend.
The wild boar was amazing as was the beef bourguignon, neither are common but Cafe Du Parc did an amazing job with both.
We had an amazing time and would highly recommend this restaurant. The menu was diverse and intriguing. Staff was top notch. The meal progressed without feeling rushed. Looking forward to returning.
Dining at Cafe Du Park is always a delightful experience!
It was a lovely day to sit outside although the birds were a bit pesky ... my french onion soup was rather tasteless ... salad was good ... not too pricey considering it is part of the hotel.
Very disappointed. Seasonal veggies with the salmon were steamed with no flavor or seasoning. Wild rice with the flounder was undercooked (hard) though the conventional rice with it was cooked. I know everyone is struggling with staffing, but the staffing issues here were particularly significant.
All was good. Great food (turkey sandwich and beet salad)and Cabernet.
A little slice of Paris in Washington, DC. Outdoor dining is wonderful!
Service was attentive. Food was fresh and delicious
Come to brunch at Café Du Parc if you’re staying in the hotel and want some expensive, mediocre food before you leave. The charcuterie board had Bree and goat cheese with mortadella, salami, and capicola. The “ Cesar” came with a vinaigrette. There was nothing French about this place. I should have known better than to come to the tourist area for some good food.
Convenient location and easy
Love this restaurant. Staff is super helpful, food is great and the outdoor patio is lovely.
Excited to try as the website made it sound like the food would have been a great experience. Food was cold and was not any better than just a local diner. Our waiter was nice but never checked to see how our food was and was not very attentive. The price was outrageous for the quality of food and service. Very disappointed.
Everything is usually great, except they keep canceling my open table reservations when I actually showed up.
Restaurant was very good but there were some very loud, rude guests that happened to be there at the same time as us.
Nice dining experience. Food is ok, not very great. Sitting outside In beautiful weather is great.
Food was spectacular. General experience was good. The waiter was awesome. However, there was a feeling of being forced to speed up. The restaurant wasn’t full of people and We had the reservation so I didn’t see any need to be in a rush.
Our waiter, Moses, made our whole evening lovely! He prepared our cocktails exactly as requested, gave us good advice on menu choices and took great care of us from arrival to departure.
The prices are high and the overall mood of this restaurant is indifference. I dined on the patio on a Saturday night. It was not busy. Once the flood lights go on, it really changes the mood of the space. I didn't like eating under the glare of the lights.
Very disappointed. I’m shocked that this place has so many good reviews. Location was great and we assumed by the photos and being attached to the Willard, the service and food would live up to that. WRONG
My daughter’s food came out 20 minutes before mine, and when I tracked down our waitress to look into this, it was another 10 before she came with my plate. No apology.
One of my daughter’s poached eggs was practically hard boiled (mine were perfect), and the potatoes came out of someone’s freezer bag.
Our waitress ONLY approached two times, to bring food and to bring check. $80 meal was WAY over priced for the service and the food.
I forgot it was a ‘French’ restaurant - nothing about this place, other than the name, presented as French cuisine.
Food was so so (cold muscles), but the service was great.
Food was very good. Service was great. Atmosphere classy. Only complaint was that the wine was awful. For such a great venue, the prosecco was the only star on the wine menu. The pinot, the cab, the sparkling rose and the merlot were all dull. Its surprising that such a classy venue offers such subpar wine.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here during our stay at the Willard. The escargot appetizer was delicious and sizable. The mussels were excellent and an additional side of broccolini was perfectly tender and covered in garlicky goodness. As it was a special occasion, they served us a complementary tart complete with a mini chocolate banner with Happy Anniversary written on it. As we are non-drinkers, they also brought us campaigners flutes containing their amazing mandarin and blood orange juice blends. It was Perfect!
Light early dinner and wine on a lovely Sept evening on Cafe du Parc patio across from the park with soft jazz in background. Service professional and attentive but not intrusive. Food delicious and good sparkling wine.
Great food, great atmosphere! Lovely and kind staff
We had a delicious Sunday brunch outside. Service was very attentive and the food arrived quickly. Eggs Benedict was fabulous. A very enjoyable experience.
Very enjoyable summer evening dinner dining outside. Background music was a bit loud.
Amazing lobster sandwich on brioche roll
I originally choose this French restaurant because they serve escargot - a seldom seen food here in the US. The food was very good, but not the Best French we have had. The cafe itself is part of the Willard hotel and the overall ambiance was nice. The true downside was the price — $200 for two of us with minimal alcohol. It’s way over priced for the experience.
Service was very slow, we felt forgotten several times
The food was poorly prepared; when I sent my food back they questioned it. Service was slow.
We had a lo
The experience was better than our first time! Service was incredible. Food came out within 10 mins of ordering!
