Beck is fantastic. Quiet alcove seating, wonderful oysters & mussels. Santiago, our watier had a real pro touch. The restaurant makes me think of some I like in Paris. Not cheap, but worth it.

Beck is one of my wife’s favorite places, so we decided to celebrate our 29th anniversary with them. Not surprisingly everything was perfect, to include our cocktails, entree’s, and even the warm bread and creamy butter to tide us over. We waddled away satisfied and stuffed.

Always a great experience at BB. Even on Thanksgiving, the prix-fixe menu options were delicious. The service started on shaky ground, but it eventually turned in the right direction- a minor hiccup to what is usually excellent, friendly, and welcoming service. The wine and beer lists are withstanding the tests of time and “competition.” BB is a jewel and it is a restaurant I consistently highly recommend. Looking forward to my next visit.

Thanksgiving @ Brasserie Beck was everything we hoped for. The menu was well-planned and there was something for everyone on the holiday menu. Service was terrific and we felt well taken care of by our knowledgeable waiter. What to order? Good question. There are no wrong answers here. Squash soup, traditional Thanksgiving turkey and fixings, Mussels (of course!), various pastas, and Roasted pear salad, among others, were some of the options we chose and all were delicious. Great selection of beer/wine, and tasty desserts. Thanks to the staff @ Brasserie Beck for making our holiday celebration a memorable one, indeed.

Always a lovely luncheon choice. The atmosphere and food are of a consistent high quality. Would have been 5 stars but for the noise. I had to be asked to be reseated as they tried to seat everyone in one very loud corner. I’m sure the other patrons are likely interesting people but they are not who I was wanting to talk to for lunch.

Brasserie Beck has been my favorite DC restaurant for several years. They have an excellent wait staff and bartenders, and the best manager in DC. The food is always outstanding. This past Saturday I made a reservation for a family luncheon and the staff went above and beyond to make it a very special dining experience; thank you to Adam Rigaa and team.

This was perfect for a mid-week business dinner. We were able to talk without being too close to other diners and not too noisy. Food choices were great and I would have gone all stars but it was a bit pricey.

Way TOO noisy inside but one tends to get forgotten when dining outside. Short ribs were tender but bland; potatoes were cold and the salad not balanced with an excess of bitter greens. Not a single smile from wait staff or service people.

Friendly, yet professional, service and outstanding Belgian moules and frites. They knew we were in a bit of a hurry for theatre and stepped up. Very tasty Old Fashioned and glasses of house Chardonnay and Sauv Blanc that they selected (they informed us after we ordered second Chardonnay that they didn’t have a chilled bottle and didn’t want to serve sub par wine) were high quality and reasonably priced. They don’t do a 9oz pour, though, so half a demerit! Great ambiance.
