Absolutely fantastic evening. Intimate space with delicious innovative dishes. Started with a duck egg poached in red wine, I was uncertain until I took my first bit. Then moved onto braised beef cheeks, succulent! My partner started with the butternut squash soup that was delicious and had the duck confit, always a favorite dish for her. This one ranked at the top of her list. Service was attentive, friendly and complemented the quality of the meal. Next time we're in town we will certainly be back.

Phenomenal! You will not be disappointed in this fine restaurant. The ambiance is fantastic. Situated on a side street in Georgetown, it is the perfect setting and location for any occasion. I came here after making a reservation on a Wednesday night, and the place was very busy. Food is out of this world! Drinks are also top notch. Five stars hands down. Highly recommend!

I’ve been to chez billy sud numerous times for dinner, but I’d never tried it for brunch. It was fabulous. I went with two other women, and we ordered a variety of offerings, from the sweet and delicious beignets to the eggs poached in red wine to omelettes, and then for dessert, the olive oil cake with blueberries and creme freche. Everything was perfectly prepared, seasoned and presented. Our waitress, Mackenzie, was attentive but not overbearing, helpful, courteous and just simply lovely. What a special way to celebrate the start to the weekend. We will definitely be back.

I had never been to this restaurant before but it came highly recommended. I chose it to celebrate a milestone birthday with a friend and was not disappointed. Everything was just right for this special occasion. Beautiful table setting, excellent service and a varied menu. The wine list was first-rate and the Gaillac rose was superb to accompany the delicious trout. One of the most important features was that we did not have to raise our voices to talk which made for an overall pleasant experience. A touch of France in Georgetown. Definitely will return.

We ate here with a group of four friends. The service was attentive and excellent. We appreciated the suggestions from our server. The food was delicious. We ordered two different salads, the rillette, the duck confit, beef bourguignon, and the trout. All were delectable. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I love this restaurant! Our daughter had just gotten engaged and we wanted a place to celebrate. I requested a special table for the evening. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by our server and the restaurant offered us a complimentary round of champagne. The evening was marked by frequent checks by our server to make sure water glasses were full, wine was poured, and answering questions about the menu and wine list. This is traditional French food without trying to be trendy. Chez Billy Sud has always met my expectations for a well executed experience.

The menu is deceptively simple, but the food was so fresh and well cooked. As an organic eater, I will say that from the bread to the wonderfully sautéed trout with vegetable medley, I have not enjoyed a meal so much in a long time. Our table also ordered the salad, pate maison, and mussels - all delicious. Our waiter was attentive to the right degree, unobtrusive and well timed, sweeping crumbs from the table when clearing courses, etc... This restaurant deserves its high rating. I have never given a solid 5 rating to a restaurant before this.
