The food was creative and delicious and our server was fantastic. From our complimentary glass of bubbly, we were celebrating our anniversary, she was cheerfully attentive. We will be back.

We arrived over an hour before our reservation and they made us comfortable at their bar and sat us before the reservation time. The steak frites was amazing and my husband enjoyed his duck.

Such a charming ambience and excellent food. Menu is somewhat limited and they were out of salmon (grrr) but everyone’s dish was excellent. Highly recommend the duck confit.

Had read great reviews about this place and it seemed right for a special occasion. It's all true. The food is insanely good. We had bluefish rillettes, trout, escargots in a vol-au-vent, loup de mer (sea bass), and shared a Paris-Brest pastry, all simply outstanding. So much butter! Lovely selection of cocktails (thank you, Jason) and an interesting, moderately-priced wine list. Our knowledgeable server, Fluke, helped us choose a wine suiting our taste that was unfamiliar and a terrific pick. Overall, the service can be justifiably mentioned in the same breath as some of the best places in town. The staff were attentive but not intrusive, looking at tables to see whether or not to come by. We were there on a Sunday night - I imagine it is more "lively" on Saturdays - and could carry on a conversation. The decor is delightful. A final note on the menu: I was happy not only to see four fish dishes and an attractive vegetarian choice, but also that the fish dishes were free of shellfish or meat, unlike too many other restaurants. I wish we lived around the corner!

Enjoyed Sunday brunch with family to celebrate our son’s birthday. We appreciate the Manager accommodating our larger group. Our 3 boys enjoyed the special treatment and we all loved the food. Agnes took great care of us, service was excellent, second to none! Thank you and we’ll be back.

Don't be put off by the thought of having beef cheeks. They were extremely tasty. Not so much the gnocchi, which were rather bland and had little sauce with them.

We travel often to Washington DC and have made a habit of dining at this quaint Georgetown restaurant. The menu features French Bistro classics. The wine list is very good. The preparation is classic and unerring. If you like French Bistro cuisine [and who doesn’t!] you must east and Chez Billy Sud.

An amazing evening at good value for French cuisine. We had the chicken liver pate to start and entrees of Duck Confit and Beef Cheek Bourguignon. Waiter also made a great Languedoc wine recommendation that was reasonably priced and complemented the meal. Unfortunate that we had no room for dessert!

The main course and service were good but the biggest disappointments were the coffee and dessert. A French restaurant serving only drip coffee???? and which restaurant nowadays doesn’t offer skim milk or any other type of milk rather than whole milk or cream. Also the profiterole was a disappointment. The sour cream or creme fraiche filling did not taste good. The puff pastry was hard and there was only tiny amount of chocolate on top.

We will return!

Cameron is a wonderful waiter. Very polite and respectful. The place is quaint and ideal for romantic dates on a Monday night. I love crispy duck, but this was a bit too crispy, down right crunchy. Chef needs to cook it a little less to avoid dryness. Pate was out of this world. Wine prices are a bit over the top. But overall, a pleasant evening. I would come back

Our waitress, Agnes K, was incredible. She was happy to let us sample a few different wines and help us hone in on exactly what we wanted. She was very personable and attentive without ever being in the way. The service alone is reason enough to come back. The food, though, was INCREDIBLE! I had the steak frites. Steak cooked perfectly and the frites were very good. My girlfriend had the mussels and THE BROTH was so good I ate an entire baguette in an effort to soak it up. My father would roll over in his grave if he saw me doing it, but it was just too good to pass up. This was our second visit here and I'm already looking forward to the third!
