Had dinner here with my 12-year-old daughter and her BFF while in town for the weekend. Server incorrectly wrote down or entered our order, so my beet napoleon never came. The girls enjoyed the escargot but I’ve had better; their steak frites was good, and the roasted cauliflower salad was exceptional.

Last minute find when train delays threatened to spoil an evening. Looking for something near Grand Central and this lovely spot popped up. Authentic French Bistro cooking in a lovely setting of rustic wood, hanging birdcage lamps and exposed brick. The server/manager was delightful, and had knowledgeable food and wine recommendations. Whether it was an understaffed night or what, we couldn't tell, but there was just no way to describe the service. Different servers, no communication with each other, entrees waiting over 30 minutes, something just fell apart. As this was such a find, and only the first time here, I'm assuming this was a one-off and wouldn't hold it against Le Grenier and intend to recommend and visit again.

We were celebrating my daughter’s birthday. I had purchased a “deal” on Travelzoo that was a scam. The cost for that same deal in the Restaurant was cheaper. On top of that the server was confused and caused a great deal of drama around the deal I had purchased. It was embarrassing for us and ruined the special occasion we were celebrating. I finally gave up and told the server to charge us whatever she wanted so I ended up paying $60 more on top of what I had already paid for the deal. Over Over, the Restaurant was very run down, with average food and below average service. I would not recommend this to anyone.

We had a main course and a desert, the food and wine was very good but the service was very slow. We had to wait for 1,5 hour for the main course to arrive, luckily we weren't in a rush and the food made up for the slow service.

Went to the restaurant after purchasing a travelzoo brunch package. The food was fine, nothing spectacular, but the service was poor. We weren't even acknowledged for the first 10 minutes of us being seated. It wasn't until after I asked who the waiter was that a guy that passed by our table several times was pointed out as the waiter. His attentiveness was poor and his lack of interest in hospitality made the experience subpar. Overall, the food wasn't good enough that I would go back in spite of the service.

The offer states it is for brunch but it is definitely NOT clear that it is from a VERY limited price fixe menu.
We suggested allowing us to order whatever we wanted and just apply the $45 credit. We would have spent way more than $45 to be able to eat what we preferred but we're rudely told we would forfeit the whole amount if we did so.
NEVER going there again despite the fact that it was a cool place for Sunday brunch.

We drove across DC to dine at LaGrenier. It's has a charming atmosphere, great food, and excellent staff. It's a little loud so that detracts from conversations but that was our only negative aspect experienced. Love this place.

Le Grenier was a find of my wife's. We are here on vacation for a month and had already tried several restaurants that were not to our liking but were pleasantly surprised by Le Grenier. A very good menu, good wine list, patient, knowledgeable staff and spectacular food. There were several dishes we are anxious to try so we will be back.

We were in DC for just 4 nights and ate here two of those--enough said! Funky H Street bistro with contemporary spin on classic French cuisine. The Salmon Flip Flop (grilled salmon, goat cheese tart, and cucumber sorbet) is highly recommended! Be warned that wine by the glass portions are tiny. It is best if you can see your way to buy a bottle.

Highly recommend- my friend and I ate dinner here for the first time for my birthday on a Saturday night and it had steady business but was never overcrowded. Our server was great- very French and vaguely annoyed by everything (as the French often are) but attentive and never rude.

Our food was INCREDIBLE. We started with a crepe for an app, then I had the salmon with a delicious goat cheese tart and my friend had some of the juiciest, most tender pork I've ever tasted.

Music and decor is very fun. This is a neighborhood gem! :)

 (Chicago)·Dined on September 2, 2017

We were so disappointed in our meal at Le Grenier, both the food and the service. After being seated, it took 25 minutes for a waitress to take our drink orders. It took another 25 minutes to take our food order. Our drinks didn't arrive until we were almost done with our appetizer. All told, we sat for over 50 minutes with a completely empty table, and no one apologized for the delay or even refilled our water during this time.

As for the food - I ordered the salmon dish, which turned out to be not so much a dish, but rather three random items sitting totally separately on a plate: a piece of salmon (overdone and under-seasoned, and inexplicably buried in arugula); a small dish of cucumber sorbet (fine, but why?); and plain goat cheese tartine (so salty and dry as to be inedible). My husband's chicken dish featured tough meat, an unseasoned and watery stew, with a sprinkling of canned olives. Despite being hungry after our wait, neither of us finished more than half our meal. Still hungry, we took a chance on dessert, and got a Nutella crepe that was somehow both rubbery AND soggy, and fairly tasteless as well.

We were shocked that a neighborhood place with so many great reviews was so disappointing - we were hoping to find a great local date night spot!

Another strange thing - we were seated in chairs with completely destroyed backrests, like a cat had clawed them up. At first we thought this was just an (odd) aesthetic choice, but none of the other matching chairs were similarly damaged.

This is the worst restaurant I have ever been to in my life. It practically ruined my weekend. Their French decor and music is so inauthentic it sounds like a prelude to a brothel. The staff stare at you while you eat, as well. I would recommend to no one. This was not a win for H street revitalization.
