The mussels are great, but make sure to pair it with a great beer--skip the wine
Beer guy was awesome, definitely come here and let him pick you out new beers to try. Overpriced bad food. Steak frites was awful - chewy, grainy fatty and nasty. Seafood tower was way overpriced.
The mussels are on fleek, but sleep on the stake frites.
French/ Belgian bistro comfort food. Solid cocktail, beer, wine.
Go for the mussels and frites. The aioli trio that comes with the frites is really good.
Oysters and Belgian frites
I've dine at Brasserie Beck on different occasions. Everything is so delicious and perfectly presented. Service is great too! Best mussels & frites:)
As a Belgian I am not at all proud of this place ...Cuisine is not authentic and the owner is so full of himself
Ok the mussels are good and so are the other dishes we tried. Real Belgians would definitely miss grey shrimps .. Oh and where are the excellent Belgian wines : not one on the winelist :(
Ate somewhere else .. Came here for dessert and drinks.. Asshole manager sat someone else who got here after us. I left pusses off
Great beers, frites, Brussels, croques, and almost everything else.
Order an Antigoon, a Belgian ale brewed exclusively for chef Robert Wiedmaier by Brouwerij De Musketiers in Ursel, Belgium.
The mussels are out of this world, the elegant atmosphere and the great crowd on a Friday night...another place on my back pocket saved. I will be back.
Ooh la la I fell in love with everything. Too notch service and food. We shared mussels and fries, scallops on top of risotto and duck breast with kale and polenta. Gorgeous, romantic place.
A standout for all things Belgian, including moules frites and trappist beers.
The pomme frites are overrated. You can get much better in the city.
Excellent mussels and fries, french "service"!
They have a lovely gluten free menu!
Make sure to end your meal with a cappuccino & a shot of sambuca
Try the Classic White Wine Mussels - !!!!!!
Get the cappuccino. A rock sugar stirrer and cookie accompany the beverage.
From Washingtonian: lemony soufflé pancake, spinach and gruyere omelet, buttery escargots, moules frites
From Washingtonian: The Hemingway (daiquiri)
The veal bolognese mussels are just a bubbling bowl of awesome.
Belgian beer! :-)
Get the lump crap gratin to start- if you get mussels get the half portion! The full portion can feed 2 people!
Fondue Fries in the bar are amazing.
Try the Grilled Octopus With Oregano And Cucumber
Look for the gnome
Came for brunch which was amazing...stayed for the unbelievable beer selection !!!!! Can't wait to come back!!!!!!!
Try the Espreso
My favorite restaurant in DC. No joke. The white wine mussels are so good, I find it impossible to order anything else- but everything else is stellar.
Steph, a bartender, is the person to see. Super knowledgeable and won't steer you wrong on the menu. And don't forget to order dessert. The truffles are worth it.
Crisp, briny oysters, mussels a dozen ways, steak frites… & great Belgian beer.
Try the Ossobuco - Tender meat, creamy risotto, and marrow too!
Fries come with three sauces. None them ketchup. Garlic aoli (ap?), curry mayo, and something...
Try the Tuna Nicois
My beer costs more than my meal and I have ZERO issues with that
Try the Steak Tartare!
Get the Wild Mushroom Mussels - they are fabulous! Charcuterie plate is great to start but go for the half portion - is plenty of food.
the Pacific steamboat oysters are brilliant
Try the Crispy Pork Shank
Some fantastic Belgian beers are only a tap pull away here, one of D.C.'s best French/Belgian restaurants.
Have a Straffe Hendrik. This is the only US location I've found it. Before visiting here, the only other place I'd had one was in its founding city, Brugge in Belgium. Get it on draft or in a bottle.
Upscale food with a casual feel. Beware though- parking is a nightmare!
Single people are invisible at this place. I waited 15 minutes for a. server and no one showed up at my table so I walked out..
Nice patio and pet-friendly!
