My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We had the bluefish rillettes and asparagus as appetizers, duck confit and gnocchi for dinner, and the seasonal crepe for dessert. They had some interesting cocktails and nice wine choices that weren't too pricy.

I booked a large table at Chez Billy to bring new friends and old friends together. EVERYONE loved the food, from the trout with pureed parsnips to the ricotta gnocchi. We loved having the $4 Kir Royales for our aperitif. The service was the best I've had in DC. Truly professional, accommodating. Never ending supply of warm bread! Very friendly and low key. No attitude like you find in so many places in DC. Really interesting and diverse staff too- cool ambiance. Had a great time. (If you are eating or drinking on the patio, wear deet- mosquitoes galore.)

Chez Billy was fantastic. The atmosphere was lovely and the food had so much flavor. There was also a great selection of wine to choose from. I would recommend and I would dine here again.

A group of 6 of us ate here while we were visiting DC. We were only able to get a 9:30pm reservation, and the restaurant closes at 10pm, but they didn't rush us at all, and we ended up staying there until midnight. The service was excellent, the food was solid. Had a great salad and the duck confit, and really enjoyed the creative cocktails. Also I love that the Petworth area is developing, thanks to establishments like this Chez Billy!

Love the atmosphere - great food, but not at all pretentious. Good noise level too, not too loud but it never feels dead. Fantastic cocktails too.

Dinner was delicious and the service was great. Love the neighborhood feel of this place and that the food is upscale. We really loved the trout with the lemon caper butter. Wish my stomach had been more agreeable as I really wanted to try dessert- they looked amazing!
