For brunch. Crazy busy, awesome vibrant feel in more laid-back area of DC, brick-walled. Decent menu, decent drinks (Napoleon Mimosa was nice), nothing too impressive. Service a bit rushed and pushy, and the prices are definitely high, but enjoyable. Definitely intrigued enough to head back and put them through their paces.

Moule, pomme frites, and glasses of Hommel Bier and Saison Dupont under an umbrella on a sunny day are hard to beat.

A great little neighborhood restaurant featuring Belgian cuisine and Belgian-style beers. Good selection of Belgians and US East Coast Belgian-style beer. Food is great, if you like Belgian. Service is sometimes better than others: never bad but some servers know their beer and food better than do others. I stop in every time I’m in DC on business (a few times a year). Never had to wait for a table, never seen a line, maybe because I’m generally there weekdays.

This is primarily a restaurant with some Belgian beers rather than a beer bar per se, but you will certainly not want for a delicious beer while enjoying one of the tastiest restaurants in the area. Terrific staff...without a doubt worth more than a few visits.

Nice place near the Eastern Market Metro. Make a reservation! We did, luckily, but the line to ’wait’ was at least an hour for those who didn’t. The food selection is very good. I tried the foie du canard as an app (smoky and tons of it) and some mussels for dinner. My wife enjoyed their halibut. The beer selection was decent, but overpriced for what it was. Service was very good and the food is great. If you’re going just to drink, however, you can find cheaper alternatives with lower prices.

Great place. Beer selection is good, but the food is excellent. One of the best Belgian restaurants I’ve found in US

Chef Bart has a flair for pairing Belgian beers with traditional and modern Belgian food. Monthly beer tasting with their beer manager Jens, who is from Alveringem in West Falnders (home of the de Snoek brewery and museum). Special events on the restaurants anniversary in October, and on the Belgian king’s birthday.

Was in DC for a small vacation this weekend and took a party of 7 for dinner on Sat night. The food is goumet along with the prices. Excellent pairing of food choices with beer. Also a very nice wine list. Everyone loved it. Plenty of beer choices with matching glasses. Service was top notch with head chef checking on everyone throughout the meal. Not a large place make reservations. Within a few steps of the Eastern Market Metro stop.

Rotating Belgians on tap. Offerings such as Rodenbach and Westmaille accompany the trio of Chimays. Good food, neighborhood feel on Capitol Hill, and a solid offering of beer backs up this place’s growing good rep.

This is a very good Belgian restaurant, and it offers up good Belgian beers to go with the great food. Many of the beers are available elsewhere, but that’s no reason to complain, especially since this place is in walking distance to my house. Prices for the beer, however, are a bit high. Reservations for dining strongly recommended.
