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

Great place. My wife and I celebrated her birthday here and we couldn't have picked a better place. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was terrific. We would definitely come back here again. I highly recommend it.

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!

This was our first time at Chez Billy Sud and we were not disappointed! We were celebrating our anniversary and picked the restaurant based on past reviews. Our server, Aggie was delightful and tended to our every need. We didn't feel rushed and the courses came out at exactly the right time. Aggie made suggestions and each one was just right from the wine to the dessert. It was refreshing to be able to carry on a conversation without a lot of loud noise in the background. The food was delicious! The sauteed trout was exquisite and the steak frites superb. Aggie recommended the Paris-Brest for dessert and it was heavenly! Chez Billy Sud was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

Great, romantic atmosphere; excellent food, and great service. We’ve only been twice, but it certainly will become one of our “go to” restaurants in DC.

Menu is concise and varied enough to satisfy all of us, meat, fish and poultry. Every dish from starters to entrees was presented very nicely and delicious. Our waiter was knowledgeable and fun and the overall experience was wonderful. A definite repeat!

Everything was exceptional. The only thing that I didn't like was that my Duck Confit was way too salty. Other than that, the service, the drinks, and the ambiance was parfait.

This was our second visit and definitely not our last. This time it was brunch, the last time was for dinner. Both were outstanding in every way. The price was reasonable given the overall experience. The staff is great. the decor is restrained but very pleasing. We would highly recommend Billy Sud to anyone, but especially anyone willing to pay a little more for a great dining experience.

Food was interesting, tasty and well-presented. We were taken on time and given a nice table. The only problem was that the rest room was two flights of stairs up and if you have trouble climbing, they suggest you go to the next door bar which has a bathroom on the ground floor. Other than that..it was a great dining experience that my entire party agreed about.

My husband and I went for our anniversary. We started with the beet salad which was tasty but I would have liked more Roquefort and less beets. I got the gnocchi and my husband got the duck breast. I had total order envy because the gnocchi was just OK but the duck was superb! The chocolate mousse to finish was the way to go. So smooth and silky.

What I am always struck by when I go to Chez Billy Sud is how romantic it is...candle-lit if not in reality, in image. The service is personal in a way I love. Waiters seem actually interested in you and your choices. We had conversations. We chose an amazing St. Emilion that did not break the bank. An opening salad was dressed perfectly. I had Duck Confit and it was perfect in its crunchy top and melting interior. I just love this restaurant...like a trip to France, it reminds us how good life, great food and wine can be.

Great place to grab a romantic, French dinner over a beautiful, full bodied red Bordeaux! It is VERY loud so be prepared to speak up! We’re huge fans of the duck! Wait and bar service is stellar too!

Dishes were the chef used his creativity (rillettes with trout eggs; crispy duck breast) were far superior to the traditional French dishes (canard a l orange; steak/frites). The wine list was excellent. Our waitress was great-- present when we needed her and very sensitive to our needs and pace.
Very pleasant atmosphere. I would definitely go back.

We often choose this restaurant for out of town guests. On this occasion, we had two daughters and a nine month grandson visiting. The baby did squawk a few times and someone seated nearby commented that it was loud and then followed up to ask if we understood he was complaining about us having the baby make noise. We all decided that we had better skip dessert and leave as this had sent the mother nearly into tears. We had, by the way, taken him outside a few times so he would not make noise. The staff responded by saying they had brought us dessert (we had not ordered it) and they made us feel wanted and welcome. Moved to the top of my list on best service ever. Thank you.

Always have a great time at your restaurant!
Every one, from the host (had to change this reservation 3 times) to the wait staff was just super!
The food is always consistent, and always good!
One of the best spot to visit when your are in town, not really a tourist spot, what make it even better for us who live here! A job well done!
Thank you, Jens Fisker

Extremely pleased by ambience, service, and magnificent food. The most exquisitely prepared tuna and mousse we ever had. We will definitely be back and must visit when in Georgetown. If I could give more than 5 stars, would give a 10!
