Amazing Happy Hour with half priced drafts. Food is decent, but pricey. Prefer the mussels at several other places in DC.

Exceptional Belgian restaurant with extensive Belgian beer list. When in themood for everything Belgium, this is the spot.

Fabulous outdoor seating area for those temperate and magical evenings in DC. Beer list is pretty extensive, featuring mostly Belgian beers, served in the correct branded glasses, and a few Belgian-style beers from US micro-breweries. The mussel dishes were extraordinary. Beer prices were high - to match the upscale atmosphere of the place. Draft beers ranged from $10-$12 per glass.

Visited July 2011.

This was the second stop of the day, right after Capital City Brewing right up the street. I arrived here right around the start of dinner time and there were people waiting to get in the restaurant. It was easily an hour wait but there were seats open at the bar so the choice was obvious. The menu looked good but I had already decided at that point that Iíd eat somewhere else. The tap list was good and I got to try some DC Brau beers (they had just opened and only had two or three beers out) as well as a couple of Belgian beers that I had never tried (Hopus and Antigoon). I rather enjoyed the Hopus and the Antigoon had some creepy artwork. Service was very friendly and attentive since everyone wanted a table and no one wanted to sit at the bar. Maybe it was me, I donít know. Cool place, would return, even if it is pricey.

I like this place when it isnít packed. Get a seat at the bar, order some amazing food, and some fantastic belgian ales, and if the place isnít too busy, the bartenders are usually pretty knowledgeable and more than happy to chat. Iíve also sat outside, where the staff isnít nearly as pleasant or knowledgeable. Definitely worth a visit as it is the best Belgian bar (for beer & belgian bar food) in the city. Though...there are others that are pretty good too.

For the serious belgophile, the food and atmosphere will be more impressive than the beer list, which is heavy with medium-sized breweries making sweeter stuff. Food and beer are pricey but not hugely out of step with other sit-down restaurants on K Street. Opted to go for a less expensive burger special; it was very good, as were the fri(t)es. Nice wide patio with a view of passers-by. Inside is tall ceiling, Art Deco brasserie with open kitchen... If you went to a place like this in Brussels, everyone would be drinking wine instead of beer. At those prices, wine might be the better value.

Located in downtown DC near metro center. Ambiance is definitely upscale, very clean, bright lighting. Service was very professional, fast, but mixed up my beer order. Selection is good but not amazing - lots of quality Belgians a few domestic Belgian-style and even a good house beer (Antigoon), but nothing too crazy. Food was good but portions were small. Prices were high for everything. Obviously a place geared toward the DC elite and not beer nerds.

One of my favorite places to visit now when I go to DC. Went there twice on my last trip. The food was top notch. The Beer selection was very good; more quality than quantity so that was ok. The service was fantastic. Try the Mussels (obvious choice for a Belgium place) but they were some of the best I ever had. Canít wait for the restaurant Mussels to open at the Revel which is much closer to me.

I can be a pretentious prick at times, but not nearly as much as the staff at Beck. In addition to being rude, condescending, and slow, most of the servers donít know anything about the beers on draft or the bottled offerings. The ambiance is comparable to that of an upscale chain restaurant. No style of character. Ultra-bright lighting. Massive ceilings that reverberate the noisey chatter of the sea of douche clowns, all in suits (on a weekend night) crowded around the bar drinking Duvel and Chimay. I must say the mussels were spot-on. Tender, rich and well-seasoned. If youíre planning on going here as a beer destination, please spare yourself the agony of miserable service and go to a real beer bar with incredible food, like Churchkey, Meridian Pint or Granville Mooreís (if your in the mood for mussels and frites).

Visited on a Wednesday evening at 700pm. Bar was CRAZY slammed with people, glad that we had a reservation. Sat down and took the server 50+ minutes to fetch our first round of beer. Table service was ridiculously awful unless they wanted us there for a 4 hour meal. Ordered the special veal breast and seafood stew. Stew was OK but the veal was awful for the price. Given the acclaim and the hype, we were severely disappointed with our dining experience. Having dined at the best Belgian restaurants, we hoped for a comparable experience in the US. Definitely not the case at Brasserie Beck.
