French | Kensington, Maryland - DC Suburbs

This was my first time to dine at night. I found the experience a very pleasant one and thought the food was very good, seasoned well. My only caveat was that the service was quite slow. It was a very busy night (things going at all the shops) and the restaurant was filled. I would suggest more staff on perhaps Friday and Saturday nights. I will definitely come back and will certainly recommend the restaurant to my friends. More
