Would definitely come back. We had the mules frites and the boeuf bourgignon and they were great. We finished with the chocolate mousse cake which was perfect. Recommended!

Went during restaurant week for the $40 three course dinner. Table was left with a utensil set with only a fork and a stained napkin. We asked our waitress for a knife and new napkin but she came back 10 minutes later with just a knife. We are usually not picky about service or food but this was ridiculous. Waited another 10 minutes for water in the cold and another 5 for our order. Waitress was short and kept leaving before our order was finished to tend to a larger table that kept calling her. We had to ask another waiter for a new napkin as our waitress kept forgetting. Took another 5 minutes for a new napkin. Food was ok we went with the steak tartare and french onion soup for our starters but the soup was way too salty. For our entree we went with beef borguignon and steak frites. Both were just ok the borguignon sauce was overpowering. Dessert was lemon custard pie and chocolate mousse which was really good. We tried to give them the benefit of the doubt as it was a cold night but we have never had such terrible service for a "high end" restaurant. I understand that it was cold and the waitress was probably tired but there is no excuse for waiting 15 minutes for our order and water with dirty and incomplete utensils sets.

The food and service are excellent. Unfortunately for us, the indoor seating was full so we accepted eating outside. It was below freezing. The heater next to our table was not working at full capacity compared to others we saw burning high next to other tables on the patio. Wished we brought blankets to help keep us warm.

Delicious food and great staff although they were PACKED for restaurant week. The only reason I’m not giving 5/5 is because we had an outdoor table and there were absolutely no heaters near us in 30 degree weather. Alls to say, we froze. They shouldn’t have opened up tables outside if they didn’t have a heater near the table in this weather. But they did let us take our drink inside towards the end of the night and finish it at the bar.

My roommate and I went out for restaurant week and to celebrate us both getting research positions, so we chose here! The drinks were really tasty and not too strong, and the restaurant week menu was so hard to choose from, but everything was so delicious.

Great lunch for Restaurant Week.

Irene had great suggestions, with the escargot, smoked turkey and the pot de creme au chocolat. The white wine she'served was great as well.

Wonderful time. Lots of great food.

Food is incredible!! The outdoor patio is super cute (and heated), though I do wish the string lights had been on as it was quite dim. We also had to request a heater be moved closer to us.

Very lively ambience with a nice selection of music. Booth seats at the front were comparably more spacious and comfortable than inside with square tables. Food was tasty with quite generous portion (personally). Quite enjoyed overall food presentation. Espresso Martini was memorable.

Everytime we go here, its always a very exceptional experience. The food, the service, and the ambiance are exceptional. Very picky with restaurants and I would say this place is my top favorite in DC. I always recommend this place to everyone I talk to.

This was our second time to Liberte. The onion soup and the mussels were yummy. My husband really liked his escargot and pork loin au pauvre. It was relatively quiet meal, but as people continued to drink one table in particular was very noisy.

The restaurant was crowded and a bit too warm and noisy, but for some that might have seemed cozy. Our server was lovely, but a bit run off his feet, and it took too long to bring us soup spoons, for example. Also, just one egg on half an English muffin as "Eggs Florentine"? Just plain grammatically incorrect AND stingy for the prices, even during Restaurant Week. The cocktails were excellent and so was the Pot de Crème. Will definitely return, if only to experience the place when it's quieter, and for a slower, perhaps two-course, meal.

I truly wanted to like this place, a cute little restaurant great atmosphere! Here’s where my dilemma begins. We were welcomed by the hostess an older woman. When I reserved I made a request for a booth granted that’s what we received. The hostess sat us in the booth. Unfortunately the booth was a half circle booth and was really small. I felt really crammed into the small booth it was utterly uncomfortable. I later asked the server if we could move into a different location. The server went to go find the hostess to inform her. This is where It all goes down hill for my experience here, the hostess comes back with a nasty attitude and I told her the situation and she sees how uncomfortable the booth was. She proceeds to tell me this is what you requested. I told her I understood but the booth was too small and was restricting. So she annoyingly ended up taking us to another location. Whilst doing so I had to carry the menus and my belonging to the next location, only to find out that the placement was worse than the booth. She places us in a location customers on both sides again feeling crammed. This place lacks social distancing in the midst of a peek in Covid, not only that the customer service from the hostess was subpar. I didn’t even have a chance to look over the menu because of how appalled I was from the customer service I received.

Food is not French and it is not very good. Beef borginon was dry and with a strong sauce, not the same borgignon I had in Paris. The chicken was blend and taste less.
Disappointed because the server was nice and did the best to make us happy.
