    Great food, service and excellent wine list. Sommelier is well versed on selecting wines to compliment a meal. French cuisine, one of the best in DC.

    Octopus as an appetizer is excellent choice. Alaskan Black Cod as entree. Very attentive service and now the twenty percent add on is no problem. Clearly stated on menu that is their policy and eliminates a math problem.

    It was OK. Wouldn’t make a return trip. Filet was fine, foie gras was fine. No valet parking at times so plan ahead to park which is hit or miss given the White House tourist traffic.

    La Bise fires on all cylinders and in my opinion delivers across the spectrum of taste, beauty, and service better than all of the two Michelin star restaurants I’ve been to. Every single dish hit the mark throughout the night and the wine pairings sent it over the edge. Exquisite. We had the gougeres and hamachi premier plats. The hamachi was a stand out with the mango puree. We followed that up with the beef tartare and fois gras which were spectacular. Trust the sommelier here, her pairings for these will blow your mind. We both had the duck which was great, and finished with the souffles and the pavlova. The pavlova was perhaps the best dessert I’ve ever had. I’m surprised La Bise doesn’t have a Michelin star or two, it deserves it. The chef and team have something truly special here.
