Visited after a late lunch on a Monday afternoon. The place was pretty much empty, but there were a lot of staff working. The tap list was fair, but their bottle list was more impressive. Very lengthy and lots of good stuff available. Their prices are unreasonable, though. The cheapest draft was $8 for a cream ale, but the rest went up to as high as $15 for a Lindeman's Peche. I only had the one beer and left. Service was good and the place was pretty cool inside. Just couldn't get past their prices.
A very expensive bar in Bethesda with a pretty good tap list. Went here after work on a Monday and took good advantage of the somewhat affordable happy hour. Oysters were a buck a shuck as well, and good. Lots of bottles, with all the classic Belgians (seems the focus here). Some local stuff from the likes of Jailbreak, Denizens and others on tap and bottle. Good patio outside for summer. Friendly service.
Made it here mid-November. Moderately sized, but seriously packed place. Come here for the muscles more than the beer. However, there had just been a Denizens tap takeover the night before, so 4 of their beers were till flowing, one through a randall. Staff was attentive as they could be considering the number of people around the bar. Table service was very good, enthusiastic staff, or at least the people we interacted with, knew enough about beer and the specific beers they were serving, which was a nice change from many places that only know about the wine selection. It’s a bit pricy, but food is delicious and the selection is slightly better than expected. Don’t expect any shockers on the bottle list, it’s basically the higher-end Belgian selection at Total Wine with a few locals thrown in.
8ish beers on tap. belgian focused, with with some american brews thrown in (e.g., new belgium ranger ipa). antigoon on tap, recipe supposedly from chef/owner(?). food was pretty good, if a bit pricey. enjoyed the beet salad. pleasant low key, dark, restaurant ambiance. the big screen tv is a bit out of place. fine.
Chic and yuppie imagined version of a Belgian bar, I guess, with prices higher than most other DC places. Food is tasty. Beer selection is the usual larger Belgian imports.

A good restaurant with a good belgian beer list, but because of Montgomery County and location(Bethesda), is expensive. Guy who opened the place said he’d never have opened it if he knew how impossible Montgomery County would be.
Went in one night after work, and sat at the bar. Small place, quite busy, and very loud. Ordered a Delirum Tremens on tap. Bartender seemed nice enough and seemed to be knowledgble about the beers. Gouge pricing for the small amount of beer you get. Disappointment! I was so excited about the thought of having a belgian beer bar so close by in downtown Bethesda.
