$45 & up -- 'Top Chef': Lunch or Dinner w/Drinks

By Lisa Chung

Why we love it

  • Earns 4 stars on OpenTable from more than 150 reviews
  • Zagat says it brings a "bit of Paris to Capitol Hill"
  • DC Dining Guide says it's one of the area's best steak frites

Great food and service

Awesome food and ambience

The food was over-salted. The waiter explained that the chef seasoned everything "perfectly", but one person's "perfect" is another's over-salted. Would haver preferred less seasoning (especially the salt).

The food and service were excellent. We all had filet mignon, which was really great.

The waiter was terrifioc. He's from Normandy area of France, and could not have been friendlier or more courteous.
