This restaurant is on the north fringe of 14th St NW just north of Florida. It was empty when we dined on a Friday night-no buzz-but they play nice jazz music. The waiters were friendly and helpful. The food was ordinary-cod fritters were mostly bread...More
We adored la Bonne when it was located on U Street. Amazing food, great atmosphere, it was our go-to neighborhood place. The new location has the same great food (though some of our beloved dishes are not on the menu any longer). Unfortunately, the new...More

We dined at 6:15 pm Sunday before a 7:30 performance nearby. Perhaps because it was early, service was good. The food was very good, and the menu included booth full dinners and lighter fare.
