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.

Large room, weird loud music, Duck confit was delicious, the Pasta and the Chicken liver Pate were no where near as good as in their sister restaurant Cafe Coline. Not impressed at all.

Restaurant was noisy and warm. Service very brusque. Wine served warm and not cellar temp. Too much salt in dishes. Not a good value for money.

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!

Good environment. Food was good. Service was so friendly. We ordered the wine from Bordeaux called Villar and it was exactly what I look for in a wine - not sweet, but rich in its scnent.

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.

Mediocre at best. Weird, inconsistent service. The thermostat was set to 50 degrees it felt like…literally a fridge. Food is ok…nothing stands out. Go to the one of the better restaurants in mosaic.

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!

Parc de Ville is a neighborhood gem.
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

The food was great. While our waiter was very nice, he had too many tables- we waited far too long for our drinks, to order and for our meal to arrive. They need more wait staff.

The food was amazing! I thought it would be a little more dressy inside but no tablecloth on a cafeteria table... so decor could use an upgrade but food and wine choices were fabulous! The name and Vibe leads you to believe it's a forty's inspired decor but waiters in jeans and t-shirts...prices refect an upscale restaurant. I would definatly go back for the food!

Food was great and very creative. Service was a problem when one of our diners never got his appetizer so he cancelled that appetizer. We were given a free dessert.

Great choice of main meals.

The service was outstanding- Diamond took great care of us! We recommend the duck confit as an appetizer, Cesar salad and petit basque cheese. For the main the Salmon and the boeuf we delicious and an excellent portion. The wine list is fantastic and has a great variety of Burgundy and Bordeaux wines and who can argue with 1664 on tap!!! Can’t wait to return again - will go here now rather than Le Diplomate!

Rough service instead of being at a “French Restaurant” it was more a fast food service our waiter was in such a rush to the point that he ask to log the check I even requested a copy of the check to the restaurant and they never reply, the food is not as close to when they open the food is not near as the quality they first deliver in reality I WILL NOT RECOMMEND this place to anybody for a get together or special ocasión we spend a fair amount of money just to be water for a terrible service

My wife and I have been meaning to try Parc de Ville for some time, but we have just recently, and sparingly, returned to eating inside restaurants. So we tried it yesterday for our anniversary and were quite pleased. Although I gave it a four star rating, for me that is real praise. Parc de Ville is excellent at what it does — serving traditional French Brasserie dishes. The food was delicious, with special kudos for the Duck Confit and the Daube. The onion soup was also better than most, and the smoked salmon rilletes very tasty. Service was fine, albeit a bit slow, as is the kitchen. The ambiance is enjoyable, and like true brasseries, on the loud side (but not so loud as to make conversation at our table difficult ). The corner booth we were given was comfortable. We are pleased to have Parc de Ville nearby, and I am sure we will return.

Worst duck I've ever had. Alternately stringy and pulpy. Suspect this was a very old duck. Or at least a duck who spent much of its afterlife in a freezer. "Crispy" skin was like cellophane. Potatoes so salty must have been soaked in sea water. Only the greens were adequate.
Caesar salad was skimpy but decent. My wife's salmon, in comparison with the duck, was a culinary triumph. Everything overpriced by 10 - 20%.
The service was lackadaisical. Management might consider uniforms other than what cleaning crews wear.

All in all, an expensive waste of a Saturday night out.
