Unfortunately the food was not up to par. When informed, management made it right.

Service was very good. Got to enjoy the nice weather and sat outside.

The mussels aux vin and the Belgian fries were amazing! The draft and bottled beer selection is limitless. The delicious and salty grilled Brussels sprouts had me drinking lots of suds. :)

BB has a full range of Belgian beers which we love to try. The sommelier? or beer expert is extremely knowledgeable. Their menu is typical Belgian/French which is a delicious blend between French and Northern European/German and just the right amount of portions/size. The lobster bisque en croute is just fabulous with a puff pastry baked on top of the ceramic dish. The onion soup includes shallots for extra flavor. So far we've had the Poulet au Champignon, Beer Braised Short Rib, Grilled Pork Chop, and
Wiener Schnitzel and absolutely loved every one.

We went to Brasserie Beck 10 years ago and were thrilled to discover the food and overall experience was as wonderful as we remembered! The mussels and frites were as good or better as any we had in Belgium. There were also several beers that we haven’t seen on a list since we were in Europe. Love this restaurant!

Waiter was way too obsequious, and omnipresent, except when we wanted him. Endive salad was okay, could have used a bit more bleu cheese. Roast chicken was just a breast, and had some sort of odd stuffing under the skin. Way over cooked and quite dry. My companion had Wiener Schnitzel, which looked okay, but which he said was also overcooked. Crème brûlée custard was fine, but sugar on top was just melted, not caramelized. Too sweet, no bitter counterpoint to the sweet custard – which is sort of the point of crème brûlée, non? Food overall was well-conceived, but not very carefully cooked.

If you are looking for great moules, this is a good place. We went for a typical steak frites dinner and it was a huge disappointment. The meat was tough and tasteless ... Sorry, I have to be honest. Frites were great.

Serge was our waiter and his level of service was outstanding. We've been to this restaurant many times and the food is always fantastic. My one complaint is where we were seated. There is a primary way for the wait staff to go to the kitchen and it was right by the side of our table. The incessant traffic was quite distracting and unpleasant. During our next visit, I will be sure to not accept that seating arrangement.

We had the $75 Valentine's Day menu and it was worthy of a starred restaurant. Everything was exquisite and beautifully presented. We requested and got one of the quieter tables alongside the windows and it was very romantic. We could actually talk! There was one snafu with the courses being mixed up (dessert instead of main course and vice versa). On the whole, though, this restaurant and all of Chef Wiedemaier's other restaurants are extremely good, and well managed, with attention to detail and customer service.

Had a fabulous anniversary dinner. Service is always top notch but the muscles (and fries) are by far the star. Best muscles in DC in my opinion. I’ve never had a bad night at Beck’s. To top it off they gave us a complimentary sorbet on the house. Nothing but praises for Beck’s.

Exceptionally good brasserie fair. Our group tried the little gems salad, raclette, mussels, fresh fish, frites, Belgian waffle, and chocolate mousse tarte (all on the restaurant week menu except the frites). Excellent selection of Belgian-style beers on tape, and extensive bottle list. The wine list was very strong, but pricey. I would have appreciated a few more moderate-priced bottle selections. By the glass, though, was comparable to the on-tap beer selections. Sent a second group there the next, and their report was the same.

Went for restaurant week - outstanding value but a little disappointed in the food. Chicken was dry/ overcooked, and the braised cabbage lacked flavor. Mushrooms were overwhelming. Desserts tasted a little like something I could have purchased at a street fair. However onion soup was spectacular, service and ambiance were great, and the food was probably not as good as usual because of the restaurant week value. Will try again and order a la carte from menu. Try the onion soup!
