It was just about perfect. Small, cozy and in a great location to be in Georgetown but not in a busy area. The onion soup was delicious. Attentive but not over attentive service. A real gem.

Small bistro atmosphere, low lighting, moderate to high noise that sort of helps keep conversations intimate in a crowded space. Steak frites wonderful. Beef cheeks wonderful. Service was efficient, friendly with lots of great mini conversations, and very genuine effort to provide a great dining experience. Ask for Agi if you go. Wine list is solid, but limited for me. Check online before you go if wine is your thing. Overall, this is a favorite DC dinner out for us and we will continue to go back regularly.

Always love this place. It is a go to. My main complaint is that they do not expand the menu and offer daily items. The servers are not trained too well either. It is an elegant little place. Does not quite have the club feeling it had when it first opened.

I loved the French onion soup. The broth was tasty, the onions plentiful, the cheese and toast generous. The mussels and French fries were a delicious staple.

Chez Billy Sud remains a delightful place to experience French specialties dining that are excellently prepared and served. At a recent luncheon we enjoyed entrees of Thon a la Nicoise and Truit Grenobloise --- both were outstanding. Service was warm and welcoming.

Phenomenal as always. We were a table of three and had the rillettes (best fish dish in DC I'd say), the chicken liver mousse, and the escargot for starters, then the steak frites and moules Dijonaises for main courses, and ended on the cheesecake. Everything was a hit.

We have been here several times when I come to DC on business. We were 2 people & were given a terrible table in the middle of the aisle. Everyone had to walk around us as they proceeded to their table. We requested an empty table against the wall but were told it was “reserved” for people who would arrive in 20 min. It was empty for a longer period of time. Obviously they provide special reservations for special people. Food is good. Too bad. I’m done.

I went to Chez Billy Sub for my first time this week with fussy eaters in my family and everyone came away impressed, a rare reaction after a meal at a new restaurant with this lot. The menu was well fit for this pescatarian and ambiance was delightfully cozy with soft lighting.

We visited on a Sunday evening to celebrate a birthday. Had to wait 1/2 hour past reservation time for a table but once seated service was perfect, efficient and personable (and they apologized for the wait and comped a dessert). The fish and steak dishes were exceptionally good. We have dined at CBS before and will return.
