    Birtday Celebration with husband and great friends. The Decor is absolutely lovely and the ambience service and food were outstanding. Everyone made us feel right at home and the waiters were so attentive. Sommelier was wonderful and helped select the perfect bottle of wine. It could not have been a better experience and a totally wonderful first visit to the restaurant. I am sure there will be many many more. Ashook has done it again!!!

    Four of us had dinner at La Bise, & food, service & atmosphere were all excellent. Our server deserves a special mention. I do not recall his name, but he was a charming Black gentleman who made our experience even more enjoyable. Will definitely return to La Bide

    The food was delicious. The gougeres melt in your mouth wonderful, the chicken liver cornets fabulous but too few, the octopus amazing, the duck fabulous, the bass perfectly cooked. The dessert, which we got the opera cake, was just delicious. It was the only thing with chocolate on the dessert menu, and we both really wanted chocolate. Neither of us really like beige chocolate mousse and this didn't disappoint! Dark chocolate yumminess.

    Food and environs lived up to expectations. Delicious, visually stunning. But as good as the food was, the star of the night was the service. From the host who graciously allowed us to change to indoor seating when the outdoor temperature was too uncomfortable, to the warm, infinitely attentive while managing not to be intrusive server and support staff. Could not have asked for better service. The staff should be truly praised.

    We loved the restaurant! The service was great, the food was excellent. We enjoyed to see the dish when it delivered, and we loved the dish when we had a bite. We though the price is a little expensive for our budget, but we were wrong. We enjoyed every minutes at the restaurant, and we recommend to our friends and family.

    La Bise is a rare jewel. The setting is intimate and exquisite, beautifully decorated and lighted. The staff are warm and friendly. The food is mouth watering good. Prices are average for DC. The wine list is excellent, the bar well supplied. Service needs attention. The staff seem to trip over each other (we ordered 5 courses as we ate and decided on them, and on 3 occasions after our order was taken another person came to take the order), hover a bit too much, remove glasses and plates as they are finished even if others still are eating/drinking. Orders arrive at lightning speed, not always a good thing. There was a lot of noise when a new supply of silverware arrived in the dining area from the kitchen. In short, service is sweet but clunky. That said, the place and its food are so wonderful, and the staff so nice, it still easily deserves 5 stars.

    Food was inventive and delicious. However, for the price points the appetizers and the mains, except for the amazing sea bass, we’re at best, skimpy portions.
