    I would have given it 5 stars but the steak tartar was awful! It was not rare beef. I had a chicken dish with Morrell mushrooms and polenta. It was fantastic! My friends had the filet which was as tender and juicy as you could ever imagine. The service was a bit slow. We had to wait forever for our drinks.

    Best Black Cod and squid we have had in DC. The decor well done-like the color combinations. Noise level is good for us older folks with hearing aids.

    La Bise is quickly becoming one of my favorites in the city! The food is amazing, service outstanding and I continue to be impressed. On this eve we had the Branzino and the stuffed chicken -- chef's kiss! And nothing beats their foie gras -- so velvety and luscious!

    The food at La Bise is always excellent and this time the salad was particularly good. I do wish they had more vegetarian options though. We would go more often.

    Obsessed. My friend from out of town asked for French food “ from the kind of place where they make their own fish stock using lobster tails”. And tho I can’t for sure say that’s what they do, I can say that everything is as perfect as food can be and he agreed. The butter for the leeks The crouton for the French onion soup The texture of the mousse in the cornet The creaminess of the risotto with the many textures of beans and pine nuts The silkiness of the cod Resplendent. Not a neighborhood I normally venture two for dining but this is worth the trip. This is French dining — amazing food with service that is about letting you hang out, relax between courses, take your time. Ps if you love sparkling anything, the bugey cerdon sparking gamay is not to be missed
