Chef/Owner Brendan L'Etoile works alongside his uncle and mother in the vibrant open kitchen at the heart of the beautiful two-tiered dining room and bar, putting the family twists on classic bistro fare and bringing a taste of metropolitan France to Northern Virginia. Traditional onion soup and pillowy boudin blanc sausage are showcased alongside L'Etoile's favorite less-globalized dishes, like pinot noir-poached duck egg and Parisian gnocchi.

The French onion soup was delicious but the rest of the meal was adequate. I got the duck and it was very salty.

Service was outstanding: attentive and friendly but not intrusive. They are observing covid protocol with increased cleaning and sparse seating. The food is good, but can be aggressively seasoned (e.g., the potato rosti that accompanied an otherwise find duck confit) The moules frites and onion soup were the highlights of the night. Escargots were tender and were accompanied by an unctuous mushroom duxelle nestled in a crispy vol au vent. We were so stuffed that we did not attempt desserts.

I absolutely *loved* the wait staff and the food at this restaurant. My trout was cooked perfectly with a crispy skin, my husband said his soft shell crab was delicious, and my daughter loved her salmon. The ambience was quiet and formal - which may not have been the best combination for a Mother's Day Brunch with a 4 year old and an 11 month old (I felt embarrassed a number of times!), even though the wait staff were more than flexible. Would definitely recommend this place for a date night/brunch or family with older children.

We were very impressed with the wine list and the food. Several good French wines by the glass. The duck confit was one of the best we have ever had. Really enjoyed the pate. Can’t wait for the rooftop to open.

We’ve eaten here twice now— once for brunch and our latest visit for dinner and drinks. Everything is fabulous here from the service to the food to the cocktails to the lovely dining space. Food is very authentic French. Reminded us of restaurants we ate at in Paris! Highly recommend the house salad, French onion soup, duck confit, and the chocolate hazelnut pot de creme! Loved Requin which was the prior restaurant but we think we like Parc de Ville even more.

We've been big fans of Parc de Ville's sister restaurant, Chez Billy Sud in Georgetown, as a romantic anniversary/date night spot. Unfortunately, Chez Billy Sud had a COVID scare this week during our 1 year anniversary, and was closed for safety. I snagged a reservation at Parc de Ville, and we had an excellent evening. Our server was very friendly, and was also serving as the bartender, so we had excellent drinks. We got a few very nice perks for our anniversary, which was very sweet of them. The food was *excellent*, the same great French inspired food that we loved at Chez Billy with a few twists. The dining room was very spacious and well decorated, and tables were well spaced and very comfortable for COVID precautions. I was concerned that the larger space might feel a bit crowded, but the noise levels were very low and we had a very romantic dinner. As others have noted, service wasn't necessarily fast -- I think the restaurant is running a shorter staff given the reduced capacity -- but we were never waiting on a server and had an excellent evening. Strongly recommend!

It's always a real pleasure to be at Parc de Ville. Service is super, Dan's cocktails THE BEST. Lucky for us we live close enough to visit often. So so happy Parc de Ville survived 2020; looking forward to the rooftop deck this spring.

Excellent, attentive service. Delicious food -- we tried chef's cheese selection, Steak Frites and Salmon En Croute. We also enjoyed the specialty cocktails: French Martini and Sazerac. We'll definitely go back. AND they're adding a rooftop wine bar that's opening in May!

The food was ok. The service is a different story... I made a reservation to celebrate my fiends birthday and besides the fact that the we’ve been pretty much forgotten at the table and there was one more other table we n the whole restaurant. I tried to be discreet and asking our server to add a candle to the desert for my friend’s birthday and she literally yelled back to the kitchen “Can you add a candle to the desert” as she was waking away, not far from our table. While I believe she must of been tired, it is still something you need to be aware of as why I came to you and whispered vs saying it loudly. Anyhow, the first experience was ok but not enough reasons to go back to this place, which is its shame because it’s seems like a nice place to go for dinner.

Too few servers. My short rib was fine, though a little dry. My friend’s steak was cooked perfectly, but the cut wasn’t great and had gristle in every bite. Fries and mashed potatoes were excellent as was the escargot appetizer. Wanted to love this place because it definitely looks like a French bistro, but would probably never go back if I lived in DC.

We enjoyed the food very much. The COVID restricciones that are practiced are great. These include the contactless menu, the tables far apart, waiters wearing masks and patrons being asked to use a mask while not at their table. Our waiter was horrible and unfortunately made for a less pleasant evening. His poor attitude and unfriendly manner made us feel less than welcome. For this type of service we can elsewhere. Every other time we have been to Parc de Ville it has been very pleasant. We were celebrating two weeks after having had our 2 vaccines and specifically chose this restaurant because we have enjoyed previous visits.

Absolutely marvelous! The food was amazing. I had the braised short ribs and was blown away. Incredibly spiced, perfectly done. My wife had the salmon - an excellent dish but we both agreed the beef was better. Service was fantastic and the restaurant is gorgeous.

The food and service was really good. They did a really good job with Covid-19 precautions; saw lots of cleaning before and after tables were cleared, made everyone wear masks as you get up, and tables were distanced. While the server was great, the food came out pretty slowly but it was ok since we were not in any rush catching up after a year.

This was my first time at Parc de Ville, and it will not be my last! As a certified Francophile I am beyond excited to have a true French style bistro in my neighborhood! The food was fantastic, (have the foie, you won’t be disappointed), the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive, and the ambiance was perfect. I have been very limited in my exposure during Covid, rarely venturing out. I felt completely safe and comfortable with the mask requirement, hand sanitizing stations and social distancing measures in place. Best meal I have had in over a year!

What a nice evening we had at Parc de Ville. Our server, Woods, was perfect--attentive without being pushy, friendly, quick to laugh, knowledgeable, and efficient. Both my friend and I commented that he made us feel as if we were "regulars" and in a genuine way. The rest of the staff were also fun and easy to talk with. Food and drinks were spot on. Have to recommend the Rose Garden martini. Dangerous. Sequencing of the courses was just right. Atmosphere low-key but not boring. Lighting and music neither too much nor too little. Table spacing just right for these strange times and the COVID-19-related procedures clear and precise but not overbearing. Tidy and sanity restrooms. Parking is easy in the convenient garage just across the street. My new go-to place in Mosaic.

A cold Tuesday night, COVID restrictions still in place...,it doesn’t seem fair to be asked to rate any restaurant on its ambiance. Having been to Parc de Ville in the past, I know how delightfully lively it can be. Still, for wanting something a little different for an anniversary it fit the Bill. The escargot was delicious. Can’t wait to go back and have the French Onion Soup!

Their vegetarian choice was too salty and had too much of an eggy taste. The onion soup was almost devoid of taste. Adding a lot of cheese did not balance that shortcoming.

We went for Valentine's Day, and had an excellent dinner and smart wine pairings. The food was great, the service was attentive, respectful and pleasant - no complaints there at all. Bistro-like atmosphere with high ceilings. Probably quieter than usual due to the pandemic. I could easily see this place as packed and a bit more boisterous. It's right across from the parking deck in the Mosaic District, so that's convenient.
