Dinner was outstanding. We had a wonderful dinner at a high top table in the wine bar.
Our waitress was terrific and very mindful of all COVID protocals. The wine steward was also great--choosing a perfect bottle of red wine for us. A really lovely evening. We intend to be back very soon! Must keep this lovely place in business!

Too bad they are so affected by the pandemic and some construction nearby that does not let people discover this jewel easily.

The attention to detail from our waiter and those preparing our meal was exceptional. Everything down to the cozy wood burning fire place made this restaurant shine! I would return to Georgetown just for Chez Billy Sud! 5 stars all around!

Wonderful dining experience! The service was superb. The trout was the best meal I’ve had in awhile. My date and I were able to sit on the pleasant patio. There were no heat lamps but the indoor seating was very well spaced out for the colder weather. I will definitely be back!
Thank you, Chez Billy Sud for a special celebratory evening!

Chez Billy Sud is doing it right! We had a lovely French dinner on the patio with all the ambiance we’ve come to love at Chez Billy. It was a chilly night but we dressed for the occasion and the staff couldn’t have been more generous. Always a favorite!

Chose to dine at Chez Billy Sud for my girlfriend’s birthday. Everything from the ambiance, food, service, and wine was excellent. Our waiter was incredibly attentive and made excellent menu suggestions when we asked. The Squash soup, escargots, steak, and gnocchi were all superb. Incredibly satisfied with the entire experience and would recommend without any hesitation. Wonderful restaurant!

Chez Billy is our favorite restaurant in DC and we wouldn’t choose anywhere else to dine before we leave town. Food was fantastic and the services was so personable as always. We will always make this our dining priority #1 whenever we make our way back to DC in the future! Thank you guys.

The cozy alley-way is ideal for dining al fresco. It is quiet, collected, removed from the hustle and bustle of the street. The service is wonderful and the food (what an amazing caesar!) divine. We had wonderful white wine, the first two from the "by the glass" section. I look forward to my next reservation which I will make right now!

Nice outdoor dining experience in mid October. Enjoyed cocktails, wine, foie gras, pâté, and the duck confit. Disappointed that they were not offering coffee or dessert... the meal ended abruptly. Also surprised by the 7% covid tax on the bill. Overall: worth a visit but room for improvement.

We loved the outdoor patio and nice ambiance. Service was great as was the food. Too bad you don’t serve desserts now, we needed little sweet ending but we do understand the circumstances. We hope you go back to serving serving desserts when we all go back to normal. 😀 We’ll certainly be back. Thank you!

Chez Billy Sud is one of our favorite restaurants, which is why it was disappointing that we had a less than mediocre experience this past visit. Of course, many changes are due to COVID, but we wish we had known before eating dinner there. First, no bread service during COVID, and I love the bread they typically serve. Second, no beer selection during COVID, which is tough when with someone who only drinks beer.

Unrelated to COVID, the Bernaise had so much lemon, I couldn't really eat it. This is sad, as Chez Billy's Bernaise makes the Steak Frites, which I ordered.

When we first sat down, instructions were provided that one must wear their mask at all times, other than while actively eating. If this were the case, I would not have gone to dinner. However, it seemed no one was really following this, as everyone had their masks off while seated.

Third, I don't believe they had dessert offerings, but they did give us a free flourless chocolate cake when we left.

This was the first, and only, place we've ventured out to dinner since COVID started. We wanted to do something special for our anniversary in a safe environment with great food. They obviously have put a lot of thought into serving diners during a pandemic. Beautiful garden space, quiet and spacious, excellent service (loved the bottle of hand sanitizer on each table) and outstanding food. We will definitely be back.

Food was excellent, per usual, and the outdoor set up is very well done. My one complaint is the addition of a 7% COVID-related fee to the total value of the meal. I get that restaurants must incur additional expenses in order to operate during this time, but I thought this seemed high and (in my experience) isn't standard for most restaurants in the District.

A bit tacky they charge you 7% for a Covid-surcharge (think resort fee, a little value provided, but not worth 7%). Also they don't give you bread anymore. I asked two employees why and was given two different responses (they no longer have a pastry chef and community bread isn't good for Covid (what does this mean they were doing with uneaten bread?)). Regular food was good and I did see some additional cleaning. I will go back eventually because I like their food, but not until they get rid of their 7% surcharge.

Dining on in their patio was a perfect night out. First, it was perfect weather, granted they don't control that...but everything else they do control was phenomenal. We started with two cocktails, her with a French 75 and me, well to be honest I don't remember but it came in a tea cup and was fantastic. She enjoyed the escargot in pastry and I had what is easily the best French Onion Soup I have had in a decade, and I love that soup. So much delicious cheesy goodness with a perfectly balanced broth. We shared a bottle of wine over the rest of the meal, which consisted of mussels for my other half and duck confit for me. The duck melted off the bone and was served with a fantastic presentation of shredded potatoes that looked like cornbread on the plate the way it was presented. The mussels had no toughness, unlike so many other places and the broth was fantastic. Oh, and the frites that come with the mussels, were perfectly crispy with a hint of salt and also worked well in the mussels broth. A dessert to go was presented, chocolate cake/tart of some sort that paired well with ice cream we had at home.

Having been to Chez Billy Sud once before, at least six years ago and not being that impressed, I figured it was time to give them another shot and am very glad I did.

Lovely setting-started outside but the rain moved in so we moved indoors-I was happy to see social distancing with the tables and I felt very safe. Food was good, service was excellent-would definitely recommend for good food in a comfortable setting that provides top service.
