    Service was beyond good! When my wife tasted her duck entree, she did not like the taste of a particular herb. They quickly recooked the entree without the herb. So quick and so pleasant about the whole matter. Amazing!

    My friends and I visited after the theatre and had a wonderful experience! It was my 3rd time at Brasserie and their 1st and we would all come back again, highly recommended. Food is excellent- we had the croquettes and shrimp dip to start then the branzino, salmon and Caesar salad with salmon for our main course. I loooove hell the Calais cocktail (with vodka in place of gin) and the mule was pretty good as well. Diamond provided fabulous service and recommendations. I can’t wait for another excuse to go back.

    The food is consistently great. The only problem I have is the service on holidays. The restaurant gets very busy on holidays and you don’t get the attention you normally would. That being said, it’s my go to restaurant in Georgetown. One is never disappointed!

    We sat outside on the patio. We were welcomed on entrance to the patio and directed to the hostess. They seated us. A server immediately came to the table. Our server was Sophia. She was professional, friendly and attentive. She helped us with our menu selections. I started with a cold peach soup which was wonderful. My husband had what he says is the best escargot he has ever had. I had steak frites for my main and he had branzino. Both were beautifully presented and delicious. Everything about our experience was excellent and we will definitely go back.

    Our server was incredibly helpful without being overly attentive. Every dish of every course was delicious. The revamp of the interior feels simultaneously fresh and classic. I highly recommend this place for a solid alternative to some of the nearby Georgetown staples, especially if you enjoy being able to have a conversation with your table members.

    The cups used for drinks were dirty when they gave them to us—there was a lipstick stain on the cup when we used a straw the whole time. Also, there was hairs in our food and a bug in the water as well. The bread was also stale and cold.

    The food was very good. The best duck confit that I have ever eaten. Wine by the glass was good, with creative cocktails. However, a person who didn’t order a first course got her entree with our salads. After our entrees were brought to the table by servers other than our own, our server disappeared. Never came by to ask how our meal was, take my order for wine with our entrees or refill water glasses. After asking a bread/water person and another waiter to get us water and wine, our server briefly returned to take the wine order. By that time we were more than half way through our entrees. We sat on the patio out front and the weather was sublime. A great spot to wait for our server.

    We went for Father’s Day, not sure what a regular Sunday brunch crowd looks like but I’m happy I made reservations. We sat inside but close enough to an open door that led to the side patio. Brunch menu only. I really chose this restaurant because we love Duck Confit which is only on the lunch menu. Highly recommend the mimosa kit and the Macaroni Au Gratin.

    This was absolutely the best meal we had in DC. Service was impeccable (we were not rushed at all, the waiters gave excellent recommendations, etc). The food perfect. The peach soup was like nothing any of us had ever had. The escargot, creme brûlée, macaroni au gratin, ratatouille and tarte au citron were all lovely, too.

    Very poor service. Waited 5 minutes after our food came for silverware despite asking the person who brought our food (he immediately told our waiter who did nothing - an apparent standoff as to who brings the silverware). Otherwise, too slow on the service, no one poured our wine, etc. - despite decent food, would not recommend.

    My husband, ten year old granddaughter and I dined outside on a Saturday night recently, and all three of us had a terrific experience. The steak frites were perfect for the ten year old while we adults sampled delicious soup ( cucumber gazpacho) and the bitter greens salad( the half portion was quite large). An entree salad for grandpa and the appetizer shrimp and cheese ramekin for me, and then desserts, all of which were delicious. Our server was very attentive and efficient, and we plan to return!

    This return experience was very underwhelming compared to my first visit. Not only did the server mistake our coffee orders twice, she gave me a nondairy alternative I explicitly specified that I'm allergic to -- twice. The same mistake happened to my friend's coffee order. And the latte and cappuccino themselves were dismal. Then, in the middle of the meal, two mussells were full of sand. It happens, so I dismissed the first one as a reasonable error. But when it happened in rapid succession with the second, it was a bit upsetting. Altogether, I'm reticent to return to Brasserie Liberte.

    Too bad. This restaurant really has a problem with service: it’s bad (long wait for everything, mistakes with orders, not following food requests, overcharging, etc.). We went to the restaurant when it first opened and had the exact same problem. We waited a while, hoping the service would improve, but it hasn’t. Too bad because the food is pretty good. But, the service is so bad that we won’t be going back.

Hubby and I are always looking for new places to brunch, and Liberté stand at the top of our list for a repeat trip. From beginning to end, we enjoyed every meal. We actually ate dessert!

    Interior and service were nothing memorable. Patio was nicer. The avocado toast (which, full disclosure, I ordered without poached egg) was sad... just a piece of toast with a brown-flecked slice of avocado on top and a tangle of frisee. No crumble of feta, pickled onions, or seasoning of any kind. Pathetic portion of home fries. The $35 bottle of bubbly with assorted juices was the highlight of the meal. Many other places to go for brunch in DC-- likely won't return.
