It was good. Slow service and loud ambiance but always great food

This is a very reliable restaurant with good appetizers, salads, seafood and steak frites. The restaurant is a god-send for people who need gluten-free food. Service is always good and so are the mussels.

Fantastic food and service. Wait staff very attentive. Brunch dishes, omlete and waffles were excellent. Restaurant week special was a real bargain . Loved our meal!

The steak and frites Bethesda Restaurant Week special was very tasty and well priced. I especially enjoyed the herb butter that came on the steak. My tomato bisque soup was very good. My wife’s salade maison was bountiful and fresh. The vinaigrette was undistinguished. The steak main course was nicely cooked.
The chocolate sauce that bathed the profiteroles was beautiful. The cream puff had nice crispness.
All in all a most enjoyable lunch.

Tables are on top of each other and temperature inside was over 80 degrees, waiters were dripping with sweat

Good, authentic, not-too-heavy French food. Our waiter got us in and out quickly before our movie even though the place was busy. Loved the Arctic char, but the Dover sole, a French must-have, was just okay. Something was missing and it was bland. The seafood tower is an excellent and fresh choice for a starter.

Had the same dishes as I did last year. What a downfall. Food was bad, and service even worse. Server took the salad plate I was working on, and placed the entree in front of me. You don't do that, even with a little child.

Where do they get these people from? Do they train them? Vulgarity and coarseness in behavior has permeated the restaurant scene now. Just eat at home.

Our filets were over cooked. We were told pink in the middle was medium well so that is what we ordered. Both of the steaks were over cooked with no pink at all. Very noisy in the back room. Service was average. I think they forget it was for a birthday..reservation on open table did say that, but we had to remind them it was a birthday at the end of the meal. Overall....ehhhhh!

Crowded even on a Wednesday night! Good, but not great. Flounder was over cooked. Friendly, accommodating service.
