My boyfriend is celiac. Usually French restaurants are totally lacking in gluten free options but nearly everything on the menu was GF or could be made GF! We had a great time.

Great place to have quite romantic dinner with European vibe of being at a plaza in Italy especially so missing it now during pandemic with travel bans.

Amazing as always! Chez Billy is our go to place when we want to eat and not have to guess how service/food is going to be. Kate and her team are always great and on top of things. We sat in Bar a Vin by the fire and the stools were comfy and our table felt secluded despite the other tables being occupied. We will be back again and again!

Great but the chairs on the high top tables need to have backs on them - uncomfortable

The atmosphere, service and wonderful menu are more memorable than the actual food. The food was good, not great. I went on a Sunday evening, perhaps that drove the quality of the food. The flavors were overwhelmingly of salt, and not much flavor. But the space is cozy, the staff are friendly and attentive and the food and drink selection are just right. Wish the execution of the food had been just a bit better. I'd give it another try.

We treated my daughter, who just turned 19, and three of her friends to a night out. Chez Billy’s patio was the perfect spot for a delicious celebratory meal. Service was perfect and the food memorable.

Wonderful, friendly service. Excellent confit de canard, probably their signature dish. Their menu could do with a bit of refreshing though.

Overall the restaurant is very quiet has a great ambience and excellent service. I love French food but not so much butter. Both dishes the appetizer and the entree were covered with excesiva melted butter at a point that overwhelm the taste of the dish. Too heavy and too rich for my taste. There are only two options of dessert, ordered the chocolate one it was a disaster, old and hard.

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.
