First visit and we will be back! Went for a birthday celebration. The restaurant handled our large group very well. From the follow-up call to confirm our reservation, to the last “good night,” just stellar service. The food was wonderful; most in our party had some variety of mussels pot, all of which were delicious. The steak frites was also a big hit, and the desserts were rich and yummy. The only caveat I would offer is that the restaurant is small, so can be a bit noisy - not a problem for our group, but might be for some. Otherwise, cannot say enough good things about this delightful place!

The food of this restaurant is supposed to focus on mussels. This was the main reason of our booking. Two of us took red devils mussels. It was a disaster. This restaurant know nothing about mussels grading and the mussels we had on our plate were far too small. In addition the so called "red devil" was not spicy. Never again. This restaurant is not on our list anymore .

This was ur first time at MP and we found the place to be European-like in decor and the food was excellent. The only thing detracting from 5-star was I thought the mussels were very small compared to others I have eaten. The broth was as billed....spicey and it was indeed delicious

This restaurant has classic Belgian cuisine and then some. Great beer and wine list and very good table service. It is a one of a kind intimate restaurant that is so typical of the restaurants in Europe. The food is very good and has a great beer list as one would expect in a Belgian restaurant. SUnday to THursday there is a pixe fixe menu at 34.99 that is worth every penny. This restaurant is unique in the Washington area and definitely one that I would return to.

I've been here a few times now and it's been a great experience every time. The staff is attentive. There are always different, authentic Belgian entres available. Their weekly special is a great deal for a three course meal.

This is also the only restaurant that I've been to with this many wonderful Belgian beers.

I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

Certainly worth a visit if you enjoy Belgian food. The escargot appetizer is one of the best I have had. The options of mussels pots are exciting. Plenty of other options for those who do not enjoy mussels.

We've continued to enjoy the ambiance and food over the years. Pomme frites are excellent as well as mussels, desserts, beers & wine. While ownership has changed several times, Mannequin Pis maintains its niche.

Manequin Pis is a local gem ...the mussels and frites are exceptional, and the sea bass is wonderful . We also had the potato and leek soup and frisee salad, which could not have been better. The chocolate terrine is one of the best desserts around. ..make sure you try it!

Overall the food was excellent albeit pricy. However, the service was not commensurate with a restaurant in that price range. We were continually wondering where our waiter was so we could order more drinks, etc. They also ran out of the dessert special rather early which was A little disappointing.

Food and service was great, again. In the past we've dined with friends at Mannequin Pis, but this weekend was just the two of us. Unfortunately, the tables for two are tiny and really close to one another. I'm not a big fan of the "european" or family-style eating and being so near to my table neighbors was really off-putting. I relaxed a little after a delicious beer; the chance for my desired quiet, intimate dinner long gone. We'll of course go back but only in a party of 3 or 4.

Food was exceptional. That is the only saving grace for getting three stars versus zero stars. Parking is horrible with a small lot. The restaurant is cramped. Imagine your living room with 10 two top tables in it. Many tables could not get in and out of without asking the person next to you to move. Service was less than marginal. No waiters, just servers/busboys. We had to flag someone down every time for a drink refill. I had an iced tea which never got refilled so I just drank water. The food is awesome which explains why this place was packed and had at least 10-20 people waiting to get seated at any given time. I would recommend to anyone as the food was great but do not come here if you are in a hurry, expect great table service, like private conversation, or claustrophobic.

This is our "go to" restaurant for celebrations. The staff is always very accomodating and professional. The mussels and the beer are always great. On this trip, I requested that rather than bring a cake for dessert, that a Delirium Tremens beer be brought with a candle in it. The request was carried out to the delight of all patrons, who sang happy birthday to my wife.

The restaurant wasn’t crowded so I can’t speak to what it’s like when it’s busy. Our waiter was incredibly polite, attentive, and thoughtful. He provided a fantastic service. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the escargot and then the boules of mussels. The escargot has a little too much cheese for my liking, but was still tasty. The mussels were excellent, cooked well, and were served in a savory broth. All-in-all, it’s great place to go for a casual dinner out.

We were a table for two seated practically touching another table for two, which made the entire meal kind of uncomfortable for us (and them as far as I could tell). We could hear their entire conversation even though they were quiet. The service was not good considering the price. The food on the other hand... I'd say mine was fantastic and matched the price we paid; my date's did not.

Great food for the season - and to go with the many Belgian beers on offer. The sausages were memorable. The fish was awesome. The beef stew was good, but clearly made from steak scraps - very different bites in the dish. But all good.
