    This is one of our favorite "what do you want for dinner?" Go-Tos. They are on open table, so we will usually scope it out and make a reservation before we head over. My favorite is the homardine!

    It's a go-to in the Dupont Circle area, open all the time, w/ a large menu of French classics, cassoulet, tartiflette savoyarde, steak served with bearnaise sauce & killer fries. [Eater 38 Member]

    This place feels really old yet so french! Salad with goat cheese and steak was really good. But I liked the french onion soup the most. Lovely experience.

    The mussels with lobster bisque are mind blowing. And they serve food until midnight on week nights. Leffe Bruin (dark) on draft. Mini ravioli with ham and pesto are amazing as well.

    Lovely wait staff, great food and an extensive wine list. Sit in the window seat and you can see all that DuPont Circle has to offer. I recommend without reservation.

    Best French restaurant in DC. Wonderful ambiance. Real French fries. Get the mussel pot w lobster bisque. Go ahead, you must try the Escargot.

    A boisterous, casual spot with solid French food and wine. Great for a crowd, a couple, or solo dining (and that's a rarity)

    Can get pretty busy at night - make sure you put in a reservation. It can also get a bit warm if it's a hot day. Try to sit downstairs if you can! Great food though. Wonderful service, too!

    One of my go-to's. Been here probably 100 times. Steak Frites all the way. Mussels to change it up, but everything is great.

    If you like French Food you really should try the Steak NatureIt is a typical Lunch item in France. They really make it authentic here.

    Great atmosphere and service- loved the French onion soup and le steak maison. Very reasonably priced wine list as well.

    The duck is the bomb! Fois gras isn't bad either, especially the bakery risotto it comes with. Mussels are good but not something you can't find somewhere else. Great vibe good crowd.

    Mussels Normandie and Rabbit Stew are to die for. Make a reservation. Share plates to try more menu items.

    Mushroom velotte, French onion soup, open-faced sandwiches and the macaroni souffles are my faves.

    We should have stuck to the basics. Mussels, steak and fries. We tried the sweet breads, chicken, and mushroom dish it was terrible. The duck confit tasted old to salty and the sauce was to sweet

    Escargot were good. Stake was a bit disappointment. Chocolate mousse was excellent

    Don't feel bad being "unoriginal" and ordering the steak des frites, it is amazing! Also the best French onion soup I've had.

    You can never go wrong Le Steak Mason, Catalanes, duck and most of the food menu are great. One of the best mussels in town

    Steak tartare good. Foie gras with risotto must try but a bit too much gravy. Escargot not worth it. Nice casual spot with satisfying food.

    I'm French, I mean really as I spent 38 years of my life in France. And I did really enjoyed it even if I feel that the" lapin a la moutarde" was way too americanized for my taste!

    Vegetarians have very little to choose from (it is French food, after all) & the lines can sometimes be up to an hour wait, so call ahead. Food is rich, so small portions are a-okay. Get the mussels!

    Fun place for a weeknight dinner with friends. The mussels and country pate are fantastic here as well as the steak frite. Try them with a glass of the Beaujolais.

    I’ve come here for over a decade and my latest visit was underwhelming. The pate’ had the consistency of overcooked meatloaf and the salade Nicoise was like a half can of tuna dumped over lettuce.

    The last couple years the food and service have really fallen off. The onion soup is still a good option, but cassoulet tastes like it has old duck and sausage in it. Service was really poor.
