    The food is way better than you'd expect in a tourist hot spot like this. You must try the crab cakes, they are amazing. I encountered some really great staff too.

    Every dish I tried was amazing! The onion soup, the truffle oil wild mushroom flat bread, the trout and the NY steak! Phenomenal!

    Eggs Benedict with lump crabs meat is really good. Loved the side salad. Mimosa were outrageously overpriced if which I did not realize until I got my check ($12 each).

    Cool spot and you sometimes see famous people there. I bumped into Joel McHale. He was really nice. Awesome location!!!

    No matter where you sit, you’ll find well-executed pâtés and terrines, exquisite salads and soups, and main courses that are models of elegant simplicity. If only the service had the same polish.

    Seriously one of the best meals I’ve ever had, with a superb wine list.

    The food was delicious. We had the steak and the filet. The cherry blossom champagne was definitely worth trying!

    The service and food are great. I enjoyed the Belgian waffles (sans berries). They were delicious.

    Comfy coffee bar to stop off at after viewing the White House for a French cap or a latte & a palmier.

    Ratatouille is vegan and vegetarian, but don’t get it if you don’t like aubergine/eggplant!

    Excellent wine by the glass (try the Cotes-du-Rhone), Tarte Alsacienne, and leave room for dessert.

    Extremely unimpressive french restaurant, the amazing outside seating area is the only highlight in this overpriced spot. Service was spotty & food good but not great, tiny portions.

    The pancakes were good, eggs were all-right the only real complaint was the bacon was cold. Giovanni our waiter ruined our experience by seeming bothered by my switch from bacon to sausage

    Pricey but good food, for me the service was fine. French onion soup was surprisingly disappointing, but everything else was great!
