A century of combined culinary experience unites the family of chefs behind Mosaic District's brightest new restaurant. Chef/Owner Brendan L'Etoile works alongside his uncle and mother in the vibrant open kitchen at the heart of the beautiful two-tiered dining room and bar, putting the family twists on classic bistro fare and bringing a taste of metropolitan France to Northern Virginia. Traditional onion soup and pillowy boudin blanc sausage are showcased alongside L'Etoile's favorite less-globalized dishes, like pinot noir-poached duck egg and Parisian gnocchi.

Our Rooftop Wine Garden is now open, serving a variety of French wines by the glass, along with a menu of light fare from the kitchen. The full dinner menu is not available in the Wine Garden.

Just the loveliest time in a perfectly authentic, warm welcoming environment. Great host (her second day!) and server (Michael I believe). Proactively handled serious food allergies with effortless hospitality. Will definitely return soon and become a regular!

BEST cod dish that I've EVER had and probably top 3 seafood dishes that I've ever had! Very *uniquely creative* entree, but appetizers and deserts were also GREAT! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

It's a shame to see this once-promising place slide this far downhill. I was surprised it was empty when I arrive at peak lunch rush on a Saturday, but I wasn't surprised by the time we left. In the entire place, one other couple had just arrived. We were greeted by the host in jeans and a dirty t-shirt. A server was wearing a black top and shorts that were filthy and sloppy. Once we were seated, along the long wall in the upper, window level at the second to last table, the smaller curved booth, we waited a long time for our order to be taken. While we waited, a party of 8 started to come in. The host walked them down the length of the room and sat them right next to us in a restaurant that was completely empty. The group asked if they couldn't sit at the wall around the corner of the L but the host told them no; he had other parties coming. Once the group was seated, it was clear they were going to be loud, so, when he finally came to take our order, we asked quietly to be moved to the other wall, and we were also told he had other parties coming. We ended up having to sit at one of the small tables in the well by the bar in an empty restaurant. Well, he didn't have other people coming. No one else came in all the time we and the large party were there. Maybe he just didn't want to walk far? (He was also acting as a server.) Though the food was so-so, that wouldn't keep us away because it's pretty inside and we love Mosaic, but the horrible service will. So sorry to see this happen to a place we used to like. Oh, well. We came for the gnocchi and it's off the menu anyway.

I was very pleasantly impressed with the food and service at Parc de Ville. The menu has limited choices, but they were all well done; indeed, the food was more authentically French in quality and presentation than at some higher priced establishments that claim to serve "French cuisine." Every thing that we had was consistently very good and reminded us of similar dishes that we have enjoyed in France and Belgium. The open space was also appreciated, making "social distancing" possible.

The food is always amazing, it would be nice to have the full menu on the rooftop. The outside seating was nice but lacked a little bit of curb appeal and while you could look inside the ambiance is lost outside.

The food was amazing and the server was funny and very nice. Service was very slow at first but got better as the meal went on. Escargot was fabulous and my daughter couldn’t get enough! Steak frites to die for with a bernaise sauce that will knock your socks off and the duck was similarly outstanding.

The food was excellent. We ordered the escargot, sea bass, braised short rib, and chocolate tarte. Everything was so flavorful that we wanted to lick the plates clean but instead we asked for bread. The bread was yummy too. We will definitely go again to try more of the dishes. 😀

As usual, the short ribs were impeccable, as was the escargot in puffed pastry. The surprise was a pate, Foie de Veillere that was simply heavenly. Capped with an amazing dessert cocktail, this was a dream birthday dinner. The service was fantastic even with fewer servers.

Everything was wonderful, food, service, atmosphere. My only complaint was that it was extremely warm inside the restaurant. No air conditioning for some reason and after a few drinks and a full stomach I was miserable. But I will definitely recommend and visit again!

Food and wait staff service was good. Kitchen service though was disappointing. Waited an hour after receiving appetizers before entrees were served. Restaurant wasn't crowded. Servers explained the kitchen was understaffed. I get that happens but maybe as a courtesy inform diners prior to being seated so they're not committed to sitting hungry for an hour? This was also for a 49th wedding anniversary dinner.

The service was great - our waiter was very prompt and kind. However we felt the cost of the meal was not on par with the taste and quality. For two cocktails and two entrees - no appetizer or dessert - was $120 pre-gratuity. We didn’t feel this matched with the quality of the meal, so we most likely won’t be returning. In the Mosaic district, there are other restaurants we feel have a better experience for the value.

Enjoyed our dinner with friends. I had the fish - while it was good, it did have a bit too much salt. Our favorite item was the salmon appetizer. It was noisy so it made it harder to talk.

Food was excellent when we finally got it. Took 30 min to our soup and salad and we had to have another waiter check on it and get it. My wife ordered a drink before we got the main entree and didn’t get it until she was done. Overall great date place and the salmon and red wine braised short rib were very good. It’s unfortunate when bad service affects the overall experience.

I met a friend for lunch on a Saturday and we both wanted to try PdV because it looked so cute on IG. It definitely lived up to the hype: cute, great food, cool ambiance. We were overall really happy with our meals. They did seem a little understaffed so I think our waiter was being worked a little hard handling what seemed like every table in the restaurant solo, but the kitchen staff and manager (I think) were really trying to help him out running food and checkin in, so though we did have to wait a little longer between service, it wasn't really a big deal (especially these days). I would definitely go back! The chicken liver parfait & burger were awesome!

Excellent food tastefully prepared and served timely
Prices are reasonable expect about $100/couple with a glass of wine.
Availability of tables is good for now; parking is convenient
There is new outdoor roof top patio which is limited to appetizers and drinks for now
Wine selection is limited but well chosen
