We almost – almost – had a very good experience. The maitre d’hôtel who greeted us and showed us our table acted as though he were doing us a favor. The lady who brought our menus was very nice and welcoming. Our server was also very pleasant, but appeared overworked the entire time. We frequently had to ask twice for things.

The food was delicious, and the ambiance was lovely.

We’ve been looking for a new Sunday brunch stalwart since the closure of Bistro Francais in Georgetown. Perhaps we’ll keep looking.

Came here for dinner for to celebrate a friend who got engaged in Paris. The food made us feel transported back to France! It was a wonderful atmosphere and authentic menu. Highly recommend for almost any occasion.

Wonderful find! Went for Valentine's Day dinner. They had a dinner for two special that was amazing. Excellent atmosphere, dressy-casual. Great French food; classy without being pretentious. Will definitely be returning.

We made a last minute reservation when we were running late from a talk. We were accommodated and treated well. The food was delicious and we left satisfied.

Finally! a French restaurant that does not sweat pompous snobs... (and that's coming from a french guy). The food is great (a couple of dishes reminded me of home), the atmosphere is elegant and trendy without the usual upscale stiffness of other french places. The staff is really nice. My only feedback is around the service management: sometimes there is only one server supported by a couple of bussers. Service can be a bit slow because of that. But since this is a place where you want to enjoy and take your time, this is not a deterrent.
+ : great food, good value, atmosphere for a date or with a small group of friends
- : sometimes service can be slow

The food was creative and tasty, and we liked our second floor table on a balcony overlooking the street and diners below, but we had two complaints. The service was very slow, with inordinate waits between courses. Also, not long after we arrived the volume of the background music went way up to an annoying level that impeded conversation. We complained and the volume was turned down to a more reasonable level, but this should never have happened. We might return sometime, but we won't rush.

Dinner at Le Grenier was an absolute delight - while we wished there was a larger selection of wines by the glass to chose from, of the options available we were not disappointed. The entrees have a unique spin and a beautiful presentation, and for a less expensive or lighter fare the galettes (savory crepes) were wonderfully delicious.

Beyond the food, the decor of the restaurant is both intriguing and cozy - we definitely spent about 15 minutes into our first time here just pointing out all the different design choices we loved. The ambience and French jazz music adds to the entire experience, and decidedly makes Le Grenier a spot to which am looking forward to returning.

I enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch with one of my sisterfriends. She had a beautiful and tasty omelet, while I had the eggs benedict with smoked salmon. We both had the cream of carrot soup as a starter. Delicious. We split a bottle of sparkling wine. We didn't think we could finish the bottle but the ambiance was so pleasant, we stayed and chatted for nearly 3 hours. No one rushed us out.

Food, service, ambiance.... all top notch!
Will definitely return.

I went there during restaurant week, and the food was outstanding. I love the ambiance of the restaurant. We had several waiters helping us during dinner, but they didn't miss a beat. Very enjoyable experience.
