    I hadn’t been in a while and went for brunch...my steak and frites were good...I had the Nutella crepe for dessert. My guest also enjoyed their food. The brunch is a great deal!

    Great food but be prepared to wait, both appetizers and main dishes both took about 20-30 mins to make it to our table but when they did it was so worth the wait, if you’re a fan of French Onion soup you’ll want to try it here. The ambiance is dark and romantic and the downstairs is cozy and intimate, looking forward to returning.

    This was our 3rd meal here. The first two were dinners and were great - worthy of 5 stars. This time we came for brunch and had an incredibly disappointing experience. It started with the coffee which was lukewarm when served. Our server was not very attentive and had to be flagged down several times. It took quite a while for us to place our orders and even longer to get our food. When the food finally arrived one of the egg dishes was stone cold. Several of us ordered eggs Benedict and the English muffins were rock hard and impossible to cut with the knives provided. At no point we’re we offered any type of compensation for the sub-par service. We Won’t be hurrying back...

    My pork dish smelled off--I told the waiter. He made some excuse that what was on the pork was the reason. Why would you serve pork that was off? And, then, he charged me for the dish!! Never to return.

    Some highs and lows. Highs - Beef meal was fantastic, including sides, garnishes, etc - Ambiance was awesome - Free champagne while we waited Lows - Seafood was phenomenal, but sides were very subpar and pretty sparse - We waited 45 minutes for our table in Valentines Day. We were not seated until 915 for 830 reservations. - I listed gluten free on our reservations. I just recently started doing this and have been blown away by the service, with servers offering gluten free menus, breads, etc. Nothing this time, plus they just gave us the normal bread Overall, I'd go back, but it had some pretty low points and I'd expect a bit better in some areas that should be no-brainers.

    We love this neighborhood refuge. The owners are so welcoming, the service from everyone there, including at the bar, is so friendly, the ambiance is so warm, and the food is always very well prepared. Who would think whipped parsnips could be delicious???? Well it is, prepared by LeGrenier chef. Thank you for being here for us. I am certain the Washingtonian was quite mistaken to not have included Le Grenier in the top 100 for 2020.

    Everything looked as it should but didn’t taste as well as it should —all form with little substance. Definitely not the best French food to be found in the District.

    We live close to Le Grenier, and tried their brunch this weekend. The food was delicious - the baguette was warm from the oven, the onion soup was rich and savory and cheesy, and overall we had no complaints. The atmosphere is cute, a little kitschy (depending on your taste I guess). Overall I think this is a good option for small groups and casual dates. The brunch special was also a good price.

    After seven years I still think this is one of the great staples of H St. NE. Brunch is solid – with great choices for everyone. Dinner is what you would expect of a neighborhood French restaurant- consistent and satisfying. Service is always good – and plenty of locals at the bar chatting with the bartender. All in all a lovely, warm place that I count on.

    Quiet, intimate and charming. We made reservations around 8:30 on a Saturday night and were given the balcony table, which was a really great experience. We were able to just sit, talk and enjoy a fun meal from there until closing. A hidden gem.

    Food is ok but nothing impressive or worth making a reservation to revisit. Our server is keen to present the name of the dish in French even though we’ve been speaking in English all along - feels kinda weird tbh. There are definitely better choices for French cuisine in DC.

    Very cute restaurant! I loved the ambiance and space. My friend and I went during restaurant week for some really great food. I had the mushrooms, duck, and chocolate mousse. They had the escargot, the coq au vin, and a sorbet dessert. The food had excellent texture and flavours, but could have been a bit warmer in temperature? Overall great dinner that I would recommend to a friend.

    What a find! As a former New Orleans resident I am a French Restaurant snob. Finally a restaurant in DC that measures up to that quality. Every aspect of the meal, from service, drinks (creative and outstanding cocktails), to appetizers, main meal and dessert, everything worked. Coq a Vin was perfect. The salmon entree was perfection. Steak frites was outstanding. The duck entree exceeded expectations. Everyone in my group of 4 raved about all aspects of the evening. Eager to return!

    Interesting decor. Bit of a delay to get a reserved table but they comped a glass of wine. Food was flavorful but very brown. Could have benefited from a bit of colors or herbs on plates.

    This was our second Christmas Eve at Le Grenier and we think it will be a new family tradition. The food was very good. They offer very reasonably priced bottles of French wine and the prix fixe dinner or the ala carte menu are also very fairly priced for the quality. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and the wines and paced our meal so that we could have a leisurely holiday dinner. The place has a warm and cozy vibe that was perfect for a holiday meal.
