Le Vieux Logis Ratings and Reviews
Greetings were good. We were looking forward to an excellent evening but we’re disappointed after we got our appetizer before our drinks. We had to remind the waiter that we ordered drink. That was upsetting but after the drink mishap things went smooth. Food was delicious.
Dinner was very good. The dover sole was our first choice but priced at $54 it was too $$.
We waited patiently to order dessert and when we finally did we found out that selection was no longer offered and should not have been on the menu - very disappointing! All in all it was excellent though!
The restaurant was very disorganized. We ordered drinks and they never came. We had to remind the waiter. We had several waiters who all seemed very disinterested from beginning to end, and it hard to get their attention. The plates were served to the wrong people. We will not go back again.
Poor service at a mediocre place. I went here for my Wedding Anniversary with my wife and two teenage daughters, during Bethesda Restaurant Week, and we all had the Prix Fixe menu. The food might have been OK, but was delivered haphazardly and cold. 2 hours and 45 minutes to get out, and my wife gave up on waiting for the last of our dessert and walked out (some anniversary?), while I waited a miserable 40 minutes more to get out of that place.
Flavors in my Salmon Croustillant (Crepe) were good, but the texture was bad - the crepe was dry and tough, and difficult to cut. And once cut, the salmon inside had been squeezed out like a yoghurt tube. And did I say cold and overcooked... Other food was OK, although my blue cheese (Stilton, Gorgonzola, Cambozola) loving daughter rejected the Camembert terrine, as it tasted like cream cheese. And what was up with canned olives plated with the Patê?
The dessert was a fiasco. Three of us received dessert about 20 minutes after the man course was cleared, which was already a long wait considering we ordered the desserts with our meal. But my daughters Crepe Suzette was missing for another 30 minutes after that - 50 minutes after our last plate had been cleared. And it was horrible - cold crepe with lukewarm sauce on a plate that was burning hot - clearly they put the cold plate on a gas burner after finding it sitting in the kitchen somewhere. Very bitter flavor and again a tough (and cold) crepe meant this was a complete disaster - and half our party gave up before delivery. Complete antithesis of a Crepe Suzette - which should be finished preparation (with flaming sauce) at the table, and eaten immediately.
In case you are wondering, although this was a Friday night, the place was only half occupied, so that's not a reason for the poor service.
We met friends for lunch and were pleasantly surprised to see it was Bethesda Restaurant Week that made the $25 three course meal amazing--both for price AND taste. We had delicious food and good service. Stayed two hours and no one asked us to leave. We enjoy this restaurant that is totally pleasant and comfortable.
My wife and I have been talking about Le Vieux Logis for some time and finally went for the first time. My wife really enjoys French food and we were not disappointed. The meal was delicious -- including appetizer, salad, fish soup and our two entrees, duck and chicken breast. The service on the other hand was spotty and very so/so, beginning with the coat check "boy" and inattentive waiter. The ambiance was very nice and conducive to quiet conversation.
First time back since it changed owners. Food was the same-passable but nothing special. The service was terrible. The waitstaff spends a lot of time talking with each other, huddled up by the “bar” and pay little attention to the customers. No one inquired if we were satisfied with the food. The hostess (owner?) disappeared and perhaps the staff left to their own devices aren’t professional enough to work without supervision. Or perhaps the new owner just lets them do what they want. They were all older men, maybe long time employees who have gotten slow and lazy. When we went out to the valet for the car, we had to describe it since he doesn’t give a ticket like everywhere else. It was raining and we stood without cover in the rain awhile he brought the wrong car. Then he realized ours was in a lot across the street. We grabbed the key and ran for it. Won’t be back.
I love this place. The staff are quiet and professional, the food is authentic and delicious. We had a wonderful 3-hour dinner, with no pressure, no pushing us out the door, just a lovely French meal and time to chat. Thanks again to the staff and management, who obviously care about what they do.
This was my second holiday visit in as many years, and while some staff has changed, the food and service were still superb. The atmosphere is quiet and the clientele is generally older. We enjoyed the pork shanks, the crispy duck orange, and the sole meuniere as well as hearty onion soups and delicious and decadent desserts. The staff is quietly attentive and thankfully does not question if you are enjoying your meal - it goes without saying that you are!
We hadn't been there in years. It was better than I remembered it before, the dining room, although full, was pleasantly quiet, the service was excellent. The food was great, especially the Lobster Bisque. I wish they would pay slightly closer attention to the request for "low salt" on the entrees, but other than that, it was really great and we will return soon!
We had the Prix Fixe lunch and were very satisfied. There were several choices and we made different selections. Each of the courses were nicely prepared, and nicely flavored or spiced, so the kitchen did an overall good job and produced a very satisfying meal and was great value for money.
Traditional French cooking and service. The food is excellent -- and the staff is outstanding. I always feed special when I go to this restaurant. In addition to the regular menu there is a prix fixe menu and a daily special menu.
Whether it is a celebration or just an evening to treat yourself well, this is the place to go.
We have dined here since 1980 and through several changes in ownership. The decor is lovely, the tables are widely spaced and the formal white table cloth settings set the proper tone.
The food is classically French and well done. The boudin blanc and the choucroute are wonderful winter meals. The duck confit was excellent, but the lobster bisque was bland. The desserts are very appealing and done with real artistry.
The service was attentive but not intrusive. It was so nice to dine in a refined location where one could have a quiet conversation with table partners.
This is an old gem hidden in an old neighborhood. Authentic French cooking with an old French decor. Love all the dishes that include from appetizer to dessert. The fixed price lunch and dinner is worth trying. Happy to have found a neat French restaurant nearby and will revisit this quaint place again.
My husband and I love Le Vieux Logis. The food, service and ambiance are always good. This past Saturday was no exception. My husband had the fried oysters and the lobster fricassee and I had the duck terrine and the red snapper. All of the food was delicious! It was a warm and cozy meal on a cold night - perfect!
My husband and I dined here with my 89 year old father-in-law. It was very easily accessible for a walker or wheelchair. The ambiance was very sweet and cozy. The staff were very attentive, polite and caring. Very old school charm. The food was deliscious. I loved that there was parking available. I appreciated the coat check. I give it 4.5 stars...
Great hospitality from everyone from start to finish. Quiet and comfortable. You don't have to yell when having a conversation. Food was good along with a good wine selection. A little expensive. Seem to have a lot of regulars.
Will go again, enjoyed the experience.
