Welcome to Le Vieux Logis! A long time Bethesda favorite, Le Vieux Logis offers a newly inspired French menu and wine list, perfect for intimate dinners, cozy nights out and quiet conversation with friends and colleagues and please ask about our new lunch menu.

The kitchen showcases flavorful French recipes that change slightly with the season and the availability of locally sourced ingredients. Authentically French, the restaurant has the feel of a bistro with a French country flavor. Joyful colors on crisp white tablecloths feel warm and yet curious.

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.

We went for Valentine's Day. The food was excellent but the service was a little slow.
Nice ambiance with quiet live music in the background.

Enjoyable. Booth seating not that comfortable for an above average height male.

Not as quaint as I thought but will definitely return

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!

Great food and a very comfortable setting in which to eat it. I heartily endorse Le Vieux Logis.

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.

Great French cuisine adapted to American taste here and there! Talented chef!

Food was just fair. Lobster bisque soup was very disappointing and the salmon was just ok. Corner seating is weird as person in one corner looks right at people at next table.

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.
