We always love Brasserie Beck. Best mussels in DC and one of the few places in DC where I’ll order Steak Tartare. 👍

The overall experience was excellent. Servers were just the right amount of attentive. I ordered a stake medium-rare and it came to the table well done. It took less than 7 minutes for a completely new replacement meal to get to me, cooked perfectly. Ordered one of mussel appetizers - amazing!

One of the most under-rated restaurants in DC. Have been going there for the past 10 years and it simply never disappoints.

The steak and French fries was supposed to come with bearnaise sauce and it didn’t. Only after asking for it I got it. It was not the best bearnaise I had.
The chocolate desert was superb! Still thinking about it after two days.
The mussels were very good.

My first time visiting but my companions were all repeat customers. Dinner was terrific as was the service. My friends all said this was standard at BB. Great place to which I will return often.

I would recommend BB only to a friend wanting a simple meal of mussels with fries and a green salad, washed down with a fine Belgian ale. Otherwise I think the food is overpriced.

As always, Brasserie Beck showed why it is one of the best spots for foodies in DC. The mussels are amazing, their steak and frites is season perfect, and their Belgium beer menu is second to no one, and to top it off the service is always excellent.

We ordered the large seafood platter, large white wine mussels, Brussels sprouts, roasted carrots, veal, duck, and salmon. As a party of three, we were stuffed and could barely move after.

The food was delicious and delightful! Our server was attentive and friendly. We would recommend Brasserie Beck to anybody and are excited to return in the future for another amazing meal!

Weiner Schnitzel w/cut red cabbage and a duck egg was a medium sized portion. It was pretty good but a tad overpriced at $30.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We always make a point of coming here for dinner when we’re in DC. The mussels are fabulous, the charcuterie plate is amazing, and the pomme frites are seriously yummy. Also the Belgian beer selection is one of the best outside of Belgium. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough, we love eating here 😊

Yest another terrific experience at Brasserie Beck. Great service, great drinks, delicious onion soup, delicious frites, mussels are top notch - though I found the beer-oriented one to be surprisingly bland, the Mediterranean mussels were delicious!

Great quick lunch time service! Got the steak & frites. Steak cut wasn't the greatest but still tasty and well cooked. Frites were excellent. My dining companion said the onion soup and beet salad were great.

Always a great restaurant, but my medium steak frites was way overcooked. No pink in the meat at all. But the Béarnaise made up for it.

We love Brasserie Beck. Eating there for years. The food was all a little off. Too much dressing on the salad. The mussels were for good quality but the salsa was watery. This is a great place. Maybe a new cook of a bad day in the kitchen. We will give the place a brake.

A wow! I’ve had moules frites many times but never such an abundant casserole of large, succulent mussels in a delicious wine, mushroom and bacon jus like this. More frites than I could eat and three mayonnaise sauces made the meal beyond perfect. Try the foie gras brûlée as well. Unexpected and delicious.
