A great place to go before a show at the Kennedy Center. We made early reservations and were sat immediately. The restaurant filled up to capacity as we ate. The food was fantastic and the mixed drinks VERY good. Will definitely be back. Fantastic service.

Once again, absolutely superb. The smoked bluefish rillettes was just the right balance of pungent fishiness and smooth fat. The steak frites was testimony why you should never hesitate to get steak in a restaurant where the professional grills are so hot you get a result you cannot duplicate at home -- a crispy crust with tender, tasty pink meat inside. My companion's potato-crusted salmon with lentils was perfection, bursting with flavor. Wine, service, all great. Don't miss the bar next door where truly expert mixologists serve up cocktails that match the quality of the food.

This is just a wonderful place for great food in a nice setting. Always have fun here . . . typically get the trout because I LOVE trout. Others in our group got the duck and they loved their selections, too.

Absolutely loved this restaurant. The ambience was warm, inviting and charming, beautifully decorated and very French! Food was wonderful with a fine wine selection. Started with the county pate which was very excellent, next time will get the escargot served in a puff pastry. It looked amazing. The duck confit was excellent. Two days later, still thinking about our meal! Service was great. Will definitely dine here every time we’re in Georgetown!

The restaurant has character and the food was delicious. Unfortunately we had a waitress who wanted to be somewhere else. She behaved completely annoyed with every request. She was mechanical in service and took the joy out of my evening. While I would try Chez Billy again I would refuse her as our waitress

Parking is a challenge but worth the effort. The greatest difficulty truly was decided what to order. You can’t go wrong with anything.

The restaurant means well but it is difficult to deliver on what is expected because there are too many patrons and not enough staff. If there are just two, you will find it difficult to have a conversation as everyone has to talk very loudly to be heard. The food is average.

Carlos was such a great server! We split the green salad to start (definitely big enough for two) and then had the sea bass and the trout. The desserts were amazing and Carlos brought out one for our birthday celebration. Will 100% come back.

A great place for a tete-a-tete with good friends. On this particular occasion, we were meeting to congratulate two of the four in our party on their engagement. The steak, duck, and two orders of salmon were cooked almost to perfection (I usually never order fish at a restaurant for fear of overcooking, but took a chance this time and it paid off) and our waiter was just the right balance between attentive and aloof. The restaurant got a bit noisy as the evening wore on, and it became progressively more difficult to hear the people sitting opposite, but otherwise our experience was close to a perfect 10.

Service from Carlos was first class. Small plates (chicken liver mousse and blue fish) were wonderful. French onion soup may be the best I’ve ever eaten. The specialty dessert was delicious. Unfortunately, both main courses were overcooked - crispy duck was very dry, and skirt steak was cooked to medium (vs. medium rare) and was surprisingly tough. Not bad enough to send back, but disappointing enough to impact an otherwise great experience. I would go there again but would be willing to send the main course back if it failed again.

Everything is legit French and delicious! Started with Escargot in a pastry shell with garlic butter and mushrooms. Usually, there are 5-6 snails at most places; not here... the mushrooms and snails were abundant and the garlic butter was "spot on". I had the pork shank which fantastic. My wife had the duck confit and loved her dish too. I can see why this may be a hard reservation to get.
