A century of combined culinary experience unites the family of chefs behind Mosaic District's brightest new restaurant. 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 tables were all spaced out, but I was happy to see that most of the tables were filled by the end of the evening. (This is the second time that I have dined here, the first being pre-COVID.) Our waitress was attentive, and my friend and I enjoyed our dinner. My guess is that the restaurant has either shortened their menu or the dessert is on rotation, but I was really looking forward to having a Paris-Brest again!

Was pleasantly surprised by PDV. Shiloh, our server, did an amazing job pacing our meal and recommending dishes. The manager, i didn't catch his name also stopped by and made our birthday dinner special.

The escargot is delicious and with a nice balance. The chicken liver parfait was also pleasant. Their french onion soup is on the lighter side but tastey.

The trout is AMAZING, I wanted to lick the plate. The duck confit is also delicious. And the chocolate mousse was to die for... we ended up getting two! The value of the food and service is great and we can't wait to come back!

Late Saturday night, uncrowded due to Covid. Noise was low, but likely to be a problem when busy. Hard surfaces abound.

Distancing was handled well and front of the house was handled very well. Service was professional, but less attentive than It should be.

Shared a mixed salad that was a bit boring and overdressed making it salty, but the ingredients were fresh. Average quality French Onion soup. Prepared nicely, cheese was tasty and crispy/gooey in the right proportions, but the broth was a bit underwhelming. The stars of the meal were the entrees. A special fish of the day (Loup de Mer) along with the chicken confit. They powered the 4 star overall review.

we have dined here before and even recommended to friends but we will not be back.
we were seated and No one came to ask if we need anythinhg. no water. NONE. i had to flag one server and he told me he will tell our server. we waited and nothing happened.
i asked the same server again and he brought 2 glasses. no water.
i then asked to speak to manager who happened to be the one who seat us.
then the bar tender stepped in and took care of us. thanks for saving our Friday evening.
they may be short staffed but really bad service except the bar tender.
we will not be back. sorry we recommended to friends.

Very friendly service. Nice upscale casual atmosphere. Music was appropriate and decent volume but high ceilings make conversation easy. Food was very tasty; not exceptional, but certainly worth the trip on a weeknight or possibly special occasion. The menu was quite limited and I would have liked to see a few more items, but this could be a result of Covid-19 and limited seating capacity. I would got back.

We had a wonder anniversary dinner with our family at Park de Ville. The food was delicious and Shiloh was a wonderful server. We were pleased it was open and with Covid19, management and personnel took great care to keep everyone healthy and safe. I Highly recommend Park de Ville with the caveat to be prepared for the price point, especially for drinks.

Me and my wife stumbled into this place one evening a few months ago. I had been bartending for over a decade. We tried the TarTar. It was so good we decided to have dinner and dessert. We are bar people, we really enjoyed both of the professionals behind the bar and even gave the bartender RAID a recipe which he re created perfectly! Prior to that I tried the house Sazarac . It was great. The last time I got a classic bees knees for my wife and I tried the bitter bees knees that they added a cynar too ! I loved it and was mad I never thought about. The Tar Tar , salmon roulette , Patte, burger and cold soup paired with the professional staff will bring us back again and again.

Parc de Ville was a more comfortable place than I expected. I was glad I had a dress on because it deserves that kind of respect. The food was prepared very nicely. I had the asparagus appetizer and the Oregon chardonnay which was perfect. I sent the postcard to a friend who lives in Arlington part of the year. And I would return for another meal.

Came here assuming we get their regular menu, but the current menu is lacking and uninspired. Food was below average, and we didn’t appreciate being put at a table near the bar, when everyone else was sitting at the regular dining area. Seems very intentional, but we opted not to make a scene. Only saving grace for the night was the very attentive service. Will definitely not coming back until they offer their regular menu.

We celebrated a birthday, and it was terrific. A real brasserie, even had a lovely Belgian couple and their grown daughter sitting next to us. Waiter was new to the restaurant but a talented, experienced professional nonetheless. Star of all is the food, however. Classic kir, glasses of burgundy, wonderful pate, confit de canard, sea bass to die for, and lovely desserts. Great atmosphere.
