                                          Very pleased with the quality of service and food. Amazing really! A little too noisy for me. I do not find noise energetic! Open table needs to have an obnoxious rating for noise. La Bise was not as bad as most, but still...I go to a restaurant with friends to enjoy their company. If I can't hear them I might as well go alone and wear earplugs. Silly...I just don't understand this world!

                                          Probably the best salmon we've ever had. The staff was so extremely friendly and welcoming. Do not skip on this new gem and we will absolutely be back.

                                          Excellent, creative food; attentive, friendly and knowledgeable staff; great ambiance (not stuffy), and location. What more could one want? Oh and the bar is super cute and has a view of the kitchen.

                                          We went to La Bise for my sister’s birthday. The food, the service, the place, everything was so exceptional. The staff were all so friendly and kind from start to finish. Although the restaurant was pretty busy we felt like we were the only ones there

                                          Their food is outstanding. Very creative and tempting desserts. I’ve been there 3 times for dinner in the last 6 months and would recommend to all. Couples, families, business, special occasions, single diners. Not appropriate for small children.

                                          We had a great dinner at La Bise. The appetizer (yellowtail hamachi crudo) and the main dishes (the duck and the monkfish) were very tasty, the staff was skilled and friendly. Only negative point for me: I had the pear tart for desert and I found it dry :(

                                          Excellent food; recommend the steak or duck. Nice atmosphere and excellent service.

                                          One of the best meals we’ve ever had. Certainly the best French restaurant we’ve been to in the USA. Very attentive & helpful waitstaff & sommelier. The foie gras is a must! The gougères went great with champagne. If I had one note it’s that the “cappuccino” was actually a latte, but a delicious & well-balanced one all the same!

                                          In September last year, La Bise had to cancel our reservation because the restaurant closed for mechanical reasons. So fast forward to this year. After being at our table for about 10 minutes, the maitre d came to our table to apologize for their cancellation last year and gave us a complimentary appetizer! We knew our evening was going to be enjoyable. The food, the service, the chic atmosphere and a great bottle of Poully Fuisse all added up to a great experience. And, they have valet parking!

                                          Certainly not the best restaurant we’ve been to in DC or anywhere else (then again maybe living in France for 20 years makes one hard to please). Right off the bat one thing that they are missing, if they want to bring their game up, is a coat check. Besides that, wait staff was great. The cadence of food service was Bistro level (the word is Russian for quick)…. For an upscale restaurant No need to rush you out to turn the table over.
