Our family came to Chez Billy Sud to celebrate my husband's 75th birthday. Overall a wonderful experience with excellent food and drink and service from the friendly staff and sommelier. We felt fully tended to, safe and relaxed in the atmosphere outside. Perfect evening!
Thanks . Great place to dine and feel comfortable during Covid!
Although food and service were very good, I'm a bit perplexed by Washington Post food critic Tom Seitsema's accolades. Perhaps he overhyped the restaurant, but it was not the outstanding outdoor dining experience we expected. We've had better outdoor diners during the pandemic at other DC and Montgomery County restaurants, generally at a lower price point.
Amazing food, super friendly and great service!
Chez Billy Sud is one of our very favorite fancy restaurants, and as this visit was only our second time dining out since March so we weren’t sure what to expect. The masks and the sanitizing and the well-spaced tables were new, but everything else was exactly the same as always: delicious, high-quality food and drinks and attentive, friendly service.
Food was good, service very attentive and a very relaxed atmosphere.
Fist time returning after Covid to one of our favorite if not favorite DC gems. They were enforcing effortlessly the new restrictions but made the whole experience friendly and unassuming. The food as always was excellent and even better then on some occasions. Intimate and relaxed, the patio between bar vin and the restaurant is a lovely romantic rue to hideaway from the gtown canal work reminding you of those French alley ways most restaurants fill with tables (socially distanced of course) in any little French village.
Glad to see the standards have not changed in these challenging times for restaurants . Food and service still exceed expectations and hopefully they can survive the economic loss We will return soon
An absolute treat to dine here the duck leg..so juicy the seabass is truly an experience, service oh so kind. Finished with a decadent chocolate flower torte! 10/10
Great food and good service in a relaxed atmosphere.
Sunday evening, a lovely patio, few tables at a nice distance. The food was excellent and service was just right. Does not get any better in this troubled times. We enjoyed the experience very much. Will return for sure.
Had dinner outside and they did an outstanding job. Tables were well distanced and servers wore masks. Offered hand sanitizers when you first sat down. Offered their full menu and there were excellent choices. We had trout and duck confit and both were delicious. Well prepared and large portions. Both were accompanied by side vegetables. Had glasses of nicely chilled red wine with the meal.
Will definitely try to get back while they can use the patio.
Chez Billy Sud is making excellent use of their charming patio for outdoor dining. The food as always is perfect, and the service is lovely. The bartender stopped by our table to discuss cocktails and mixed up the perfect blends that just suited the mood.
Every table has hand sanitizer, disposable menus and the tables are widely spaced apart. The dinner menu is shorter but still had all of our favorites. The canopies overhead provide nice shade.
The only glitch (for me) was those handheld devices that take your card and require you to tip while the server stands by. I am terrible at math and usually need a few minutes to figure it out. But again, my problem not theirs. It's just really great Chez Billy is open again.
Excellent meal and service was good, though a little constrained with having to wear masks while ordering. All good until end when bill came; did not expect (though it was noted on menu which I did not see) a 7% Health and Safety Fee. I can understand a 1 or 2% fee, but really, this did not make sense. Then I got home and realized I had been charged an additional amount without explanation but was unable to talk to restaurant since they just have voice message. Other than that I would say it was a very pleasant meal.
One of my top 5 place in dc
This is an incredible experience, perfect social distancing, food is excellent. Highly recommend.!
Possibly the best gazpacho we have ever tasted. Also loved the trout and ratatouille. Great food and a lovely patio. Can’t wait to go back after the pandemic when the bar and restaurant are open.
This was a perfect evening. The waitstaff were cheerful, attentive, enthused and all around fantastic. And the food was even better!
A charming patio restaurant (given COVID restrictions); excellent food and friendly, attentive service.
Chez Billy is one of the best restaurants in DC! The food is always fantastic, the service is outstanding, and the restaurant itself couldn't be any cuter. It is a great place for a special occasion.
Chez Billy Sud remains outstanding, even under COVID-19. Tables on the patio are well separated and other precautions are taken (like the hand sanitizer provided to each table). Service is outstanding. The only disappointment was that the dessert chef (elderly and cautious) is not working. We were sent home happy with a complementary flourless chocolate cake piece).
So glad we decided to try Chez Billy Sud on a whim. We moved inside after it started to rain and ended up sitting in the bar by the fireplace. Terrific atmosphere and service, and the food was exceptional. Our new bistro.
I was over priced. Food was ok....
It ended up being a lovely night. We were worried about the weather. We sat on the patio and it was perfect. Our waiter was super friendly and she had expert knowledge.
GREAT food, excellent adherence to Virus protocols. Lovely outside alley We had steak and duck, both excellent.
I love this place. I went here a few months ago and they had a special cocktail I loved. When I came back it was no longer on the menu but my server remembered exactly what drink it was (even with my vague description) and brought it to me. The food here is some of the best French food I’ve had. Felt like I was back in France!
Lovely dinner out on the patio. Such nice and informative waitress giving us the scoop on the night’s dishes. Terrific time.
If I had to choose between Le Diplomate and Chez Billy Sud, two fine DC French restaurants, I would go with the less raucous Chez Billy Sud. I probably give Billy the nod on the menu as well.
It was as if we were in the middle of a small french village on the veranda. The food was wonderful, the service top-notch, and experience superb. The staff took great care to make sure we were comfortable and following health safety standards. They disinfected and cleaned every possible surface, wore masks, and maintained their distance in accordance with CDC guidelines. We were COVID aware but it was a distant concern. The food and their wine pairings more than made up for any inconveniences our masks gave us. We had gazpacho, pate, salad, tuna, and flounder. The meal was delightful.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED CHEZ BILLY! Our waitress was OUTSTANDING and really went above and beyond to make us feel special! I wish I remembered her name but honestly one of the best experiences I've ever had at a restaurant and we really owe it all to her.
From start to finish, this meal was fantastic. The service was quick and attentive, and was clearly carefully adhering to pandemic safety protocols. We asked for several recommendations because this was our first timing dining, and I appreciated the knowledge our server had about each drink and each dish. There wasn’t a losing drink or dish among the bunch that we had, and the outdoor ambiance really added to the sense of quaint and welcoming hospitality.
This was only our first visit, but it catapulted Chez Billy Sud to the top of our DC favorites. We can’t wait to go back.
Our first foray for dinner in the COVID-19 world. It was a real taste treat and we couldn't have been happier with the service!
The patio setup is wonderful with lots of spacing and the restaurant clearly is making safety of the staff and customers a priority. The Gazpacho might be the most perfect soup and they continue to have the best salmon in the DC area.
Excellent! The Moule was beyond great 👌
Nice setting and excellent service. Menu never seems to change, which makes dining a bit too predictable and uninteresting.
Went for our anniversary dinner. Greeted by server with complimentary glass of bubbly. Made sure that all interactions were with Covid in mind so we we're completely comfortable. Service was efficient and friendly without being pressured. Food was excellent, everything arrived in a timely manner, was well prepared and presented. It was a most delightful evening on every level, and I'll be a return customer again, and again!
Chez Billy Sud has really excelled in adapting to the pandemic related problems. Patio was beautiful and clean. Staff were amazing and very helpful. Definitely will visit again soon.
Well-executed, French-influenced cocktails. Tasty rillettes and pâté. All our entrees were excellent. Great outdoor setting.
Chez Billy Sud has done a great job mastering outdoor dining during both the Covid 19 period and very warm weather. The service was excellent, the menu, though limited,
delivered many of the restaurant's standards. Only disappointment, no coffee or desert.
Definitely worth a visit during these trying times.
