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!

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

Service was so bad. 45 minutes from starter to first course. took 20 minutes to get our drinks. They said it was because of large parties. I had an out of town guest. Our tab was $187. I will not go back.

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.

There was more bread than onion in the soup though it was otherwise tasty. The Poulet au Champignon had no detectable mushrooms but the red cabbage it was served with was very flavorful.

Went for Easter Brunch and sat inside. Lighting and decor was modern yet clean and classic.

I ordered Eggs Benedict with a side of sausage. The eggs Benedict were good but the sausage was sweet. I wish I was told the sausage was sweet because I was hoping they would be salty, or regular tasting.

My husband ordered 3 eggs with a side of sausage and he liked it.

Delicious! We really enjoyed our meal here. I am not normally a lover of foie gras, but their appetizer foie gras brûlée was divine! Just try it! My son loved the steak frites, and their fries are amazing. I had the module which did not disappoint, and my husband had the chicken dish which was lovely. We wish we could have tried the wiener schnitzel as it looked very tasty!

This was our third visit to Brasserie Beck. Their way with seafood keeps us coming back - especially the mussels, prepared in a variety of ways and all of them delicious. The wine list is extensive and drinks are expertly prepared. Convenient to the Metro, White House and other DC attractions. Dinner for 3 with a bottle of wine set us back about $235 less tip but well worth it.
