It was a quiet Sunday evening at Frenchy’s. Service was attentive. Food was delicious! We tried crispy artichoke, cheese fromage and shared (for two) the 12Oz Rib-eye steak. Also shared a glass of red wine. Had a little leftover to pack home, perhaps one appetizer would be enough for next time. Price was in a higher end, it was around $80 for two people. Will recommend for quality food.

Nice dining option for a family where a kids menu and some crayons go a long way. Server was attentive, but the kitchen seemed really slow despite it being a quiet weeknight. Food was all delicious.

Great food. Very helpful staff were willing to make some substitutions for members of our party who were avoiding some ingredients. Reasonably priced. Not too crowded.

We started with the onion rings which were delish! Then my boyfriend, Dylan, got the cheeseburger and I got the salmon. Dylan said the cheeseburger was one of the best burgers he's ever had! The salmon was good but not the best I have ever had; it was a small portion of salmon, the skin was still on, and not a lot of flavor. The entrees come with bottomless fries but we were never asked if we wanted more fries so I just opted for a single serving since I finished my small portion of salmon within a few bites. Our server then brings out the dessert menu and lets us know that they are in stock of everything except the apple pie dessert so we ordered the chocolate de crème...10 minutes later we learn that they sold out of that too so they offered us creme brulee on the house...we'll take it! :) I'm glad I tried Frenchy's Naturel and I would return but I wouldn't make this a regular spot because it is too expensive.

The kitchen and bar couldn’t keep up with the volume of the restaurant. Our server was very gracious, but getting a cocktail took 30 minutes and it came after we finished our apps.

Great change from The Bird. Overall the food prices are much higher than one would expect for french bistro food. Hopefully that levels out since it is a more casual place.

Wednesday evening dinner with friends. Food is great. The steaks are to die for (we ordered the mixed grill for two). Appetizers are decent, but not worth discussing here in any detail. Service is friendly and prompt. My only gripe is with the wine list. It is extremely limited, and the choice of reds in particular is not very appealing.

My daughter and I had a Mommy daughter date and we both loved it. The Fromage was amazing, especially the pickled spicy green grapes, which my daughter hogged because she loved them that much with the chees and bread. The decor and ambience was super cute and the staff was super friendly and accommodating. I will be back the next time I am in DC.

Business dinner for three. Comfortable seating upstairs and easy to carry on a conversation. The service was friendly, attentive, unobtrusive and complete. The French-American bistro menu does not overwhelm with choices yet has a good selection of traditional bistro dishes. There is nothing “fancy” about the food except for the high quality ingredients, excellence of preparation, and overall simplicity. If I lived in this neighborhood I know I would return frequently and find several comfortable favorite dishes. Our drinks were excellent as well. Good value as well. Truly excellent pommes frites in endless supply. I will be back.

Pros: service was very good
Cons: limited wine list, food wasn't prepared as ordered by most everyone in the large party and at least one dish had to be sent back.

Food was tasty and well prepared. While I like the simple menu, I would have preferred a touch more variety, as most of the entrees were variations on steak. Another French classic would be welcome. Service was friendly, if a little too attentive. Charming space, nice date night spot.

Staff was very friendly. Recommend Happy Hour poutine—they do fries good here (I was skeptical of poutine because I’m not a fan of Canadien gravy over fries). Chocolate Pot de crème was a nice finish.

The food was very disappointing. I ordered my steak medium and it arrived beyond well done; it was difficult to cut into. The staff was very nice and immediately brought me another. This one was also well done, but at least I could cut into it.

Frenchy's Naturel is a small, boutique restaurant in the Logan area of DC on 11th Street, NW. This was our first time to try it and the four of us were very pleased. The menu, primarily steak-focused, but also offering vegetarian and fish options, was quite good, and we all enjoyed our steaks, french fries, and salads. The wine list is limited but still quite good, if a bit overpriced. The ambiance of a renovated townhouse is quite good and not too noisy. We'd highly recommend the restaurant, but make sure to make reservations on the weekend.

Very good food and acceptable service too. They tried to accommodate two of our party of five with our whole30 diet and did a pretty good job, where it not that the steak appeared to have been cooked in whole butter. Couldn't get verification from the kitchen that it was not...maybe chef should step out in a case like this. Still delish.
Otherwise good value and glad to have this bistro in the area.
