    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.

    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

    Peter Vermeulen · November 15, 2014
  • Peter V.

    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

    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.

    Get the lump crap gratin to start- if you get mussels get the half portion! The full portion can feed 2 people!

    Megan Gem · November 29, 2013

    Fondue Fries in the bar are amazing.

    Armie · July 2, 2013

    Okay—we admit it, we would come here solely for the frites. But we're also partial to heartier choices (crispy duck confit, anyone?) on the extensive menu, which is why we never get bored by Beck. Read more · July 1, 2013

    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.

    Maddie Grant · June 4, 2013
  • Sam P.

    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.

    Sam Peters · May 27, 2013

    Crisp, briny oysters, mussels a dozen ways, steak frites… & great Belgian beer.

    Jules Winnfield · May 26, 2013

    Try the Ossobuco - Tender meat, creamy risotto, and marrow too!

    Teri Centner · May 22, 2013
  • Teri C.

    Fries come with three sauces. None them ketchup. Garlic aoli (ap?), curry mayo, and something...

    Teri Centner · May 22, 2013

    Try the Tuna Nicois

    John Segota · May 16, 2013

    My beer costs more than my meal and I have ZERO issues with that

    Try the Steak Tartare!

    Wines By Raz · May 8, 2013
  • Katy T.

    Get the Wild Mushroom Mussels - they are fabulous! Charcuterie plate is great to start but go for the half portion - is plenty of food.

    Katy Thomas · April 3, 2013

    the Pacific steamboat oysters are brilliant

    Shayan Bardhan · March 31, 2013

    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.

    Elaine Poe · December 24, 2012
  • Erin C.

    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..

    Lisa Johnson · September 29, 2012

    Nice patio and pet-friendly!

    Veronica Cuevas · September 23, 2012
