Enjoyed Sunday brunch with family to celebrate our son’s birthday. We appreciate the Manager accommodating our larger group. Our 3 boys enjoyed the special treatment and we all loved the food. Agnes took great care of us, service was excellent, second to none! Thank you and we’ll be back.

Don't be put off by the thought of having beef cheeks. They were extremely tasty. Not so much the gnocchi, which were rather bland and had little sauce with them.

We travel often to Washington DC and have made a habit of dining at this quaint Georgetown restaurant. The menu features French Bistro classics. The wine list is very good. The preparation is classic and unerring. If you like French Bistro cuisine [and who doesn’t!] you must east and Chez Billy Sud.

An amazing evening at good value for French cuisine. We had the chicken liver pate to start and entrees of Duck Confit and Beef Cheek Bourguignon. Waiter also made a great Languedoc wine recommendation that was reasonably priced and complemented the meal. Unfortunate that we had no room for dessert!

The main course and service were good but the biggest disappointments were the coffee and dessert. A French restaurant serving only drip coffee???? and which restaurant nowadays doesn’t offer skim milk or any other type of milk rather than whole milk or cream. Also the profiterole was a disappointment. The sour cream or creme fraiche filling did not taste good. The puff pastry was hard and there was only tiny amount of chocolate on top.

Delicious food and a wonderful, knowledgable server (Andre). We always have a delicious meal in a wonderfully warm and cozy setting. We brought friends who also loved Chez Billy Sud as much as we did.
We will return!

Cameron is a wonderful waiter. Very polite and respectful. The place is quaint and ideal for romantic dates on a Monday night. I love crispy duck, but this was a bit too crispy, down right crunchy. Chef needs to cook it a little less to avoid dryness. Pate was out of this world. Wine prices are a bit over the top. But overall, a pleasant evening. I would come back

Our waitress, Agnes K, was incredible. She was happy to let us sample a few different wines and help us hone in on exactly what we wanted. She was very personable and attentive without ever being in the way. The service alone is reason enough to come back. The food, though, was INCREDIBLE! I had the steak frites. Steak cooked perfectly and the frites were very good. My girlfriend had the mussels and THE BROTH was so good I ate an entire baguette in an effort to soak it up. My father would roll over in his grave if he saw me doing it, but it was just too good to pass up. This was our second visit here and I'm already looking forward to the third!

This was our first time at Chez Billy Sud and we were not disappointed! We were celebrating our anniversary and picked the restaurant based on past reviews. Our server, Aggie was delightful and tended to our every need. We didn't feel rushed and the courses came out at exactly the right time. Aggie made suggestions and each one was just right from the wine to the dessert. It was refreshing to be able to carry on a conversation without a lot of loud noise in the background. The food was delicious! The sauteed trout was exquisite and the steak frites superb. Aggie recommended the Paris-Brest for dessert and it was heavenly! Chez Billy Sud was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

Everything was exceptional. The only thing that I didn't like was that my Duck Confit was way too salty. Other than that, the service, the drinks, and the ambiance was parfait.
