With a bright and welcoming ambience reminiscent of a European bistro, Montmartre serves elegant French fare in a casual and inviting setting. Starter options include the rustic pate with toasted baguette and pickled vegetables and the chilled asparagus with lemon oil and almond hummus. House specialties include the eggy custard quiche Lorraine with bacon and caramelized onions, the mussels marinieres sautéed in garlic, shallots and white wine and the savory Normande buckwheat crepe with smoked salmon and crème fraiche. The ideal way to round out your meal at Montmarte is to try one of its desserts, such as the flourless chocolate tart with white chocolate and raspberry sauces enjoyed with a hot cup of fresh brewed French roast coffee.
On days with lovely weather, try to get a seat on Montmartre's outdoor patio to enjoy your meal in the warm sunshine and refreshing breeze.
My husband and I went for our Anniversary. It was a great experience. The food was fantastic and the service top notch.
Lovely evening at our favorite neighbourhood restaurant . We were happy to share the evening with our good friends. Lovely food, great service and was so gracious to let us enjoy our time together
The food was delicious, promptly served. Dessert and coffee excellent, as well.
Wonderful as always. Elegant yet neighborly ambience, delicious food. We enjoyed a French Thanksgiving.
Always sure to please.
Excellent food and great value. Service was spot on!
Overall we had a good experience but I was personally disappointed with my main meal. I ordered the seafood stew. The seafood itself was very fresh, however, the broth had NO flavor at all. I would not order it again.
Still, the service was prompt and the chocolate mousse dessert was delicious!
Consistently great French food!
Too noisy (bare walls, ceiling and floor) but excellent beyond that.
Consistently good food and service. Their muscles are especially good.
Monmartre is our favorite neighborhood go to restaurant for birthdays, special occasions and sometimes for ordinary indulgence. The food is always delicious without being precious, the atmosphere is warm, welcoming, casually elegant.
As always, a meal at Montmartre is always memorable. Whether it’s a fresh, light salad or decadent calf’s liver, it’s delicious.
The food was absolutely delicious and authentic French cuisine. Prices were completely reasonable too. Service was great too
Montmartre never fails to live up to expectations!
Love eating here! We always know it will be delicious.
We absolutely loved our experience! The food was delicious, and the service was fantastic.
Fantastic place for high quality, well prepared french food. The muscles were off the chart. Nive food and wine menu. Very friendly staff.
Truly an amazing evening, food, service and ambiance just like a little Paris in DC. I had the special and it was divine. My fiend had the salmon and equally divine. Wine was 50% off; a perfect evening
Delicious authentic meal. Service was good considering indoor and outdoor were packed. Would come here again.
Love the French onion soup and the quiche for lunch was a great portion
Delicious food and great bar choices with a dining room noise level that made chatting impossible
Small, unpretentious French restaurant reminiscent of a high-quality neighborhood restaurant in Paris. Consistently high standard.
When there for the rabbit and it and everything else was superb. Very nice neighborhood restaurant .
As always, fantastic! The duck special was extraordinary and the salads could not have been more fresh. This is my favorite restaurant in the neighborhood.
Do not book for late night post event meal even if they have a time slot available. Our booking was at 10:15 and upon arrival we weren’t even greeted with a “good evening”. Instead it was “You’re our last reservation tonight and the kitchen is about to close so if you want dinner you have to order quickly”. We were then stuffed into a cramped corner of the dining room and advised we could order drinks only after we decided on food. Service was more focused on closing the restaurant and we felt compelled to rush our meal and leave. I believe that your last cover of the night should be treated with the same level of courtesy and service as your first. If you don’t want people dining in your establishment after 10pm on a Saturday then don’t be available for bookings.
Delicious food. The octopus and the Cassoulet were both fantastic, best ever!! Cute casual atmosphere!
Montmartre on a beautiful day on the plaza - nothing like it! We had a small lunch - delicious sandwiches, small salads and escargots, along with a refreshing sparkling rose and a capuccino to end with. Each item was delicious. The service was perfect!
Lovely evening meal on the patio. Superb sangria and outstanding flounder. Guillaume served beautifully - we enjoyed every minute and every bite!
My impression is that the quality of the food has dropped off. They are not as good as they used to be. This is quite distressing and this was a reliable bistro for us.
It was fine. Slow service
Excellent service, great food. One of our favorite places. The mussels were very good. The scallop entree was excellent. Start to finish a nice experience.
Many years had passed since we last ate at Montmartre—and we wondered if it would be a much fun and delicious food as we remembered. It was all of that and more, because the area is now filled with families raising children and dogs. They create a sense casual belonging that makes Montmartre a truly wonderful place for dinner out.
Excellent across the board. Great outdoor dining. Love the location, close to Eastern Market. Parking was even easy.
Wonderful as always
The friendly service at this consistently wonderful Capitol Hill restaurant makes any dinner a special occasion.
The food, particularly the dijon mussels, was incredible.
Too cramped to be wholly enjoyable. All in all - good just not great.
The food at Montmartre is comforting, home cooked, and delicious! It was a mild evening and lots of diners inside, which made the inside nice and quiet. Rather unusual!
Our waiter was good, but a little hard to understand.
Wine prices were high so with two glasses each our bill turned out to be pretty high.
But the meal was amazing.
We were celebrating a birthday and a complimentary dessert was provided for the birthday guy and service was just right.
