All of our dishes (i.e. both the appetizers and main entrees) were served lukewarm, as if they had been sitting on a counter for a while before they served them to us. We also had to wait a very long time for our drinks and their refills, which completely breaks the mood of the evening. The quality of food is also mediocre at best (the crispy brussel sprouts were more burnt than crispy, the schnitzel was just ok, same thing with the duck, only the octopus was good). Considering the price of food and drinks at this place and all of the above, we will not be going there again.
It was disappointing—fine but not great and extremely expensive for fine, and our table location was flat-out bad.
These people do not really know how to cook mussel, which is a handicap for a Belgium restaurant
Delicious mussels are a must. While the server was pleasant, it took a long time to order our food. They did bring a complimentary glass of sparkling rose to celebrate our anniversary, which was a wonderful touch. I plan on continuing to go here for our anniversary and recommend it to anyone that asks.
It's a charming looking restaurant. The menu, though extensive, is fairly limited. They seems odd, but they only have two sandwiches. My friend ordered the beet salad, which was good but very small. I ordered the salmon sandwich which came with fries. The fries were very good, but the salmon was way too salty.
Unless I wanted mussels, I wouldn't go back.
Outstanding service, scrumptious food, top wine selections and great ambiance. It was a perfect evening. Whether it’s dinner for 2 or a group, this is the place for a special night.
Love this place. Was a bit quiet when we went, but the food, as ever, was amazing! Great service too. You have to try the mussels.
Food was delicious!
The food was good and location easy to get to, but the service was lacking. At one point we were the only table in the restaurant (730pm reservation) and still didn’t get good service. We were also celebrating which was noted on the reservation but they never acknowledge it.
Three fans and one skeptic accepted Brasserie Beck’s “all you can eat” mussels offer for early supper on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was quiet when we came, pleasantly active when we tore ourselves away.
We explored the cocktail menu - bourbon blackberry julep! - and the fine list of beers on draft - try the crisp pale Eggenberg. We dove into mussels: with the doubter a version with bacon, the quiet guy the Mediterranean iteration, while the keenest fanatics chose the traditional white wine and garlic. Servings were presented with a flourish in hot cast iron. Servings were consumed with less flourish and seconds followed.
This is a transporting restaurant, a corner of Brussels on K Street. Service, led at our table by the charming Serge, was attentive and unobtrusive. In all a delightful evening that lingered at the end of the Red Line.
We've been to BB several times in the past and have always enjoyed it. Our recent visit was not up to earlier standards. The service was very slow and inattentive. The waiter didn't know much about the menu. His descriptions were wrong even after asking the chef. The food was also disappointing. The lamb and clam entree I had came with no clams. My Friend's steak was overcooked. My dessert was slightly burnt and very dry.
BB were having a special all you can eat mussels event. The two of us has somewhere around 90 mussels and three different wonderful belgian beer. After tax and tip $110
Brasserie Beck was perfect! My guest and I were shown to a quiet table by a window, without even having to ask. We had attentive, but not over-attentive, service, and the food was great, as I knew it would be. Hadn't been there in years, so I was glad it turned out so well. I'll be coming back, and my guest noted that she will add this to her list of good places to go when visiting DC. Highly recommended.
Great service and food continues to be outstanding!
Awesome dining experience-service, food, ambiance!
Always a great experience and food.
We went here for restaurant week at lunch. It was a great value. The service was impeccable. The salad and steak tartare shine, as did the chocolate dessert and frites.
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.
Big restaurant with very good mussels. Sectioned dining spaces with good privacy for business lunches. Pleasant outdoor seating on the broad sidewalk - good place to be in warmer weather.
I've been here for lunch and more recently for brunch, each time I was extremely satisfied. The mussels are delicious and the service was excellent. We made a reservation for brunch, but we probably didn't need one, because during our 12 o'clock appointment were very little people present, and plenty of space. Parking is a bit of an issue, but not too bad on the Sunday we went.
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.
New Year’s Eve. John the waiter was awesome, funny and attentive, but not overly :)
Creative sides and attentive service made for a wonderful evening!
We love our server Aziz! Thank you!
We enjoyed the food and drinks. Great service and nice atmosphere.
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.
The best, great mussels, great onion soup. Service was spot on. One of our favorites in DC for any occasion.
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.
The Mediterranean mussels were excellent. Service was good. We really enjoyed our meal here.
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.
Excellent waitstaff and great food!
The food was outstanding. Everything else was great too, just not extradinary by comparison with the food.
Very nice atmosphere. Authentic Belgian food and Belgian beer. Would definitely go there again.
Service was poor.
