We were able to dine with friends this past weekend and had a wonderful time. The restaurant has taken all the necessary Covid-19 precautions, so it felt very safe. Beyond that is was the usual high standards and wonderful experience. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the atmosphere comforting. So nice to be back.

Great ambiance and experience especially during Covid. Staff was excellent in recommending different courses and drinks. Especially helpful when pronouncing French wine and drinks. We have the steak frites and duck and both were cooked well.

My boyfriend & I went for Valentine's Day- I had high expectations for this place, and they were EXCEEDED! The food and drinks were phenomenal, service was excellent, and ambiance was so romantic. I highly recommend the beet appetizer. We sat in the wine bar at a high top next to a wood burning fireplace and a quaint window with a pretty view. Will definitely return in warmer weather to sit in the courtyard!

This is a very nice restaurant. You will be well taken care of here. We went to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. Unfortunate they don’t have a pastry chef currently but they did have a yummy offering.

Absolutely delicious loup de mer with haricots verts and lemon butter sauce. Our server brought us a dark chocolate cake that we had while we finished our Cotes du Rhone. Well-spaced tables and masks made us feel comfortable. I’ll be going back soon!

Our return to Chez Billy Sud was even better than we could have imagined. The Scottish Salmon is one of the best dishes in D.C. The aroma of the dish is wonderful and breaking the crisp potato crust on top of the salmon is reminiscent of breaking the brulee on top of the creme brulee. The bistro burger and frites were wonderful as well.

The impeccable service and beautiful environs top off the dining experience. We dined in the fireplace room, which couldn't have been more welcoming and warm.

We ate in the bar area, which is perhaps more atmospheric in this time of social distancing. The food and service were excellent, as usual and the staff were very scrupulous regarding health and safety practices.

Our visit was to the discreet and cozy Bar à Vin next door, right near the fireplace (make sure you ask for that!). The cocktails were perfectly done and the service unobtrusive but responsive and warm. Bar à Vin is the perfect little hideaway bar: not loud, not trendy, not a pickup joint. Just the perfect stage for quiet conversation between good friends.

Dinner was outstanding. We had a wonderful dinner at a high top table in the wine bar.
Our waitress was terrific and very mindful of all COVID protocals. The wine steward was also great--choosing a perfect bottle of red wine for us. A really lovely evening. We intend to be back very soon! Must keep this lovely place in business!

Wonderful dining experience! The service was superb. The trout was the best meal I’ve had in awhile. My date and I were able to sit on the pleasant patio. There were no heat lamps but the indoor seating was very well spaced out for the colder weather. I will definitely be back!
Thank you, Chez Billy Sud for a special celebratory evening!

Chose to dine at Chez Billy Sud for my girlfriend’s birthday. Everything from the ambiance, food, service, and wine was excellent. Our waiter was incredibly attentive and made excellent menu suggestions when we asked. The Squash soup, escargots, steak, and gnocchi were all superb. Incredibly satisfied with the entire experience and would recommend without any hesitation. Wonderful restaurant!
