We met 4 friends for a holiday celebration there. We hung out at the bar for a little while before our table was ready. It was a really nice scene and the Manhattans were great! We were shown to our table right on time for our 7:30 reservation. I was excited to order because I had seen the head chef/owner on the show "Chopped" and had read many good reviews. I was expecting REALLY good food. I ordered the diver scallops which were cooked well but somehow were just good - not great. My husband enjoyed the duck but did not really care for any of the accompanying items so left most of it on the plate. The rest of our party ordered different items and I didn't hear any rave reviews. Overall the experience was fine but I don't think we will be returning any time soon.

I had the beef bourguignon which was excellent. My wife’s Wiener schnitzel was dry which resulted in the lower rating on the food. In the past, we had always had excellent food there

We’ve always enjoyed your food over the years! This Thanksgiving, I ordered the turkey (as I did last year) and found the portion size (of everything) to be much smaller than last year; Last year, I was offered more food, but declined; this year, no offer; my wife (she got mussels) commented that my dinner was not good value; The online menu did not mention anything about being offered more food (unlike last year). This is certainly not a criticism of the preparation of any of our meals. Like I said, the food is always good! Bruce Sallen

Delicious food and excellent service. The ambience is very nice. Our cocktails (I had the Casablanca) were also very tasty. Our picky 11 year old was with us and the waiter helped him choose and adjusted a dish for him. I appreciate that.

What a great find. As an occasional visitor to DC for business I was looking for something new and the menu at Brasserie Beck caught my eye. My colleague and I decided to give it a try. To say we were not disappointed is an understatement. From the moment we walked in we were impressed with the friendliness and attention exhibited by everyone from the host to the servers, to the bus people. Our server was totally charming and made the most wonderful recommendations. The food was excellent as was the presentation. I had never heard of skate wings but did not regret going with the recommendation. Service was fast with just the right amount of attention. Portions were well sized and while we were full, we couldn't resist the poached pear dessert; a delightful combination of the most unlikely flavors that was out of this world. The French press coffee was excellent. The beer and wine lists are extensive. We had a wonderful Belgian beer that our server had recommended. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!

I’m not a fan of the new way the chicken wedge salad is prepared — it was great with the roasted drumsticks and then with the sliced chicken. I’ll hve to find another go-to on the menu as the diced chicken “patty” isn’t appealing.

Nice menu and overall good food. Waiter was very accommodating about our desire to talk a bit among friends before ordering. However, later, there was almost a 30 minute wait between when we finished our appetizers - only 3 or 6 in party had appetizers - and when main courses showed up.

Food was fantastic! Service was okay. The hostesses did not appear to be having a very good night...maybe busy, overworked, whatever. In any case, it was not a very welcoming of receptions, and the table we were brought to had bird doo on it so i took it upon myself to move to another table, but the food made up for it. All in all, I'd go back.

It was a nice fall evening, so my party of three decided to sit outside for dinner. The ambiance was nice and the service was attentive. To start with, we each ordered a dirty martini and something was very off. A dirty martini is not meant to be sweet, but this one sure was. We sent the martinis back and this time they were a little less sweet, but still not quite right. I suggest ordering either wine or beer as clearly the restaurant has trouble making cocktails. Food wise, our table started with the Warm Raclette Cheese and Belgian Frites. The raclette was good, but the portion was the on the smaller side. Fries are usually just fries, but what set this fries apart was the dipping sauces which were a tasty addition. For my main course, I split the New York Strip Steak Frites with my mother. It was a big portion, so I suggest splitting it with another person unless you have a large appetite. The steak was cooked just right and the Béarnaise sauce accompanied the steak well. Our other dining companion had the Classic White Wine Mussels which she enjoyed. For dessert, we had the an eclair, which was tasty albeit nothing out of this world. Overall, the dining experience was pleasant minus the dirty martini kerfuffle. If I were in DC more often I might give Brassiere Beck another chance; however, the next time I am in town I will be trying something new. I should note, I found the prices to be on the high side, especially for the wine.
