Brasserie Beck is one elegant place that has been improving its service lately. It is a great place with lots of different beer options and really good food. We liked our table outside and the visits from the manager to check on our dinner. We will be coming back to one one of our old favorites.

Belgian food may be confused with French cooking for good reason. They are similar. But this wonderful restaurant offers that special extra step that makes Belgian cuisine so special. Try the "Plateau a La Marcel" to discover what I mean. We live in Boston, famous for it"s seafood, but we cannot find a comparable platter of crustaceans in Boston, or any other city I know. Bravo!

We dined outside - what a pleasant setting! Our waiter was extremely helpful, and even was accommodating about my dairy allergy. We had mussels and salad and the vegetable of the day, and all were great. Only the frites were a little disappointing. Of course it goes without saying that the draft Belgian beer was terrific.

The bartenders are the absolute best, and it keeps me coming back. It doesn’t hurt that the food is great. Classic mussels? Yes. Steak frites? Yes. Steak tartare? A hundred percent yes. Great wine and beer list, too. Whether it’s to eat or have some beverages with friends, it’s a great spot.

It’s my go-to eatery when I visit DC. I’ve never had less than a terrific meal and tonight was no exception. Service is great, wine service is very good, food quality is exceptional. The mussels are huge this time of year. I had the Mussels Bolognese.

Good was really good!!! I am definitely going back to try it again. Lots of people having fun around me. Food took a while to come out....not sure why. I would have liked better service for the price I paid. And there were a lot of dish runners everywhere and kept hitting my chair. Food was awesome tho!

The food was as fantastic as always, but our service on the outdoor patio left a lot to be desired. It took at least five minutes to be acknowledged after we were seated, and we ordered a bottle of wine right away but it took another ten minutes to get our wine. We were told they didn’t have our bottle and brought another choice, and then it disappeared again for a few minutes until it returned with an ice bucket. All throughout our meal our wine was kept at a table ten feet away so we had to wait for it to be refilled. I have worked in restaurants and understand if many people arrive to dine at once, if the kitchen is, “slammed,” or if the wine we choose is out of stock. But, I expect communication which would have made our meal much better. I think we will avoid Brasserie Beck on the weekends going forward.

I'm a long-time patron of Brasserie Beck and absolutely love their approach. The food is fantastic and the wait staff are always extremely attentive. Over my last two visits, however, I haven't been pleased with the level of customer service provided by the hostesses. They barely acknowledged my party, made no eye contact and led us wordlessly to our table. It doesn't make for a nice to start to a meal.

First time here since we recently moved from NY. Had to find a restaurant near the grand Hyatt where we were meeting relatives. Picked Brasserie Beck from the reviews and it was beyond our expectations. We all agreed the food was excellent and so was the service. Would definitely return!

Business lunch schedule on a Sunny Friday. Nothing better than Mussels and Bavik on tap. Sat outside, can be noisy from traffic, but not unbearable. Our server was prompt even though my entire foursome was not. He recommended beers for my guests and made good selections. Mussels arrived (large portion) and looked huge but they are mussels and not overly filling. Crusty bread for dunking and a great start to the weekend. recommend highly

Went here for Mother’s Day and had a lovely lunch. We had requested a quiet table (as quiet as possible on Mother’s Day) due to hearing issues of some of the people attending. We also had a 9 month old. We were seated in a semi private room that was perfect. Food was delicious, many had varieties of Mussels, I did steak and eggs. Everything was cooked beautifully. We had a great time.

I came to the restaurant with an average expectation, but I thought the place was very good. The customer service was fantastic. Every employee greeted us with a pleasant smile and made sure the food and service were okay. We had the octopus and bone marrow apps. The octopus was decent and had good flavor. The bone marrow wasn't bad either, but I've had better and I didn't think the bread crumbs on top was necessary. The garlic bread accompanied the dish was way too buttery, so we ate the bone marrow with the normal bread, which was delicious. For our entree, we had the mussels champion with bacon, truffle, and mushroom. The entree size is HUGE. I thought there was a bit too much bacon, but overall the dish was fantastic and tasty. They also had a large Belgium beer selection, so if you're into Belgium beers, you're in for a treat.
