This place does not disappoint. Every dish is spectacular — from the butternut squash soup to the mussels to the duck breast. The food makes it one of the best places to eat in D.C.; the atmosphere just makes it that much better.

I have enjoyed the omelette here on previous visits, but this time it was warm not hot, and the service a bit uneven. However, I would go back as previous experiences have been very good. We were celebrating a birthday and enjoyed the complementary sparkling wine .

This is a very delightful restaurant, in fact one of my favorite anywhere. The setting is delightful and the salads, fish and mixed drinks were completely satisfying. I will gladly return, and often.

Sublime food. The duck confit is to die for! The escargots and the chicken liver mousse are delicious. The wine list is extensive and the sommelier is very helpful. I can't say enough good things about Chez Billy Sud!

As always, we had an excellent time at Chez Billy. The occasion was 5 moms out without their babies. Our waiter was super nice and even gave us a round of champagne after dinner. The food was outstanding, but my favorite thing about coming here is that service is always above and beyond. Dinner was at 8pm and we left at 11:30, by far the last ones to leave. We were having such a great time we didn't even notice. So, sorry to the staff that had to wait for us to go and thank you for allowing us to stay as long as we did!!

Always a great place for brunch -- or any other meal -- before a show at Kennedy Center. Service is impeccable and food is in a class of its own. My omelet was the best I've ever had! All manner of French bistro dishes on the ever-changing menu. Atmosphere very French Provincial.
A delight in every way!

This restaurant ticked every box for me. My fiancé and I had a family member in town (it was my first time meeting him) and I wanted to find a place that everyone would enjoy and impress. The meal was FANTASTIC. One of the best meals I’ve had one ever. Not just in DC. Service was wonderful, our waiter was attentive and respectful but not overbearing. Was very knowledgeable about the menu and was able to recommend a bottle of wine based on what we were ordering. Yes it’s not the cheapest but for Georgetown it is reasonable and it is VERY much worth what you pay.

A perfect omelet is an important measure of a good chef and Chez Billy Sud’s creamy, perfectly seasoned Omelet is the best I’ve ever eaten or made. My guest’s truite was beautifully plated with baby carrots striping the top. And the sunlight filtered through the many windows on our delightful birthday lunch.

Thoroughly enjoyed friends night out at Chez Billy. Each of us was abstaining from alcohol in January - a sort of post-holiday reset month! - and the waitress was great about it. She gave us great feedback on the various items on the menu and we were all delighted with the meal. I wish I had the recipe for the salmon with potato crust - yummy! Lovely evening.

very attractive restaurant on a cold night. Went for a special occasion -- reunion with friends. Waiter made big fanfare of pouring water. Wine good, snails good, duck dish delicious. Trout dish was inedible-- tasted like someone dropped the whole container of salt in dish and was way over cooked.

Chez Billy Sud is -- and very much wants to be -- a *neighborhood* restaurant with traditional southern French food, well executed, served by a friendly, attentive staff, in a cozy space in Georgetown. Perfect for a really nice but not-too-fancy night out.

We recommend coming early and stopping for a drink at the restaurant's wine bar, Bar a Vin, located right across the courtyard. It's possibly the coziest wine bar in DC.

I met two of my sisters in D.C. for a girls weekend. We had brunch on Sunday here. Delicious. We started off we mimosas and they were perfect--not too much orange juice. Then, we had the pate. One of my sisters is not a fan of pate but she loved it, too. The wine poached eggs were perfect. We finished with the beignets and pots de creme, amazing. Altogether, a lovely meal with attentive service in a cozy setting.
