To start the year on a positive note, let me first praise the efforts of bartender Philip to try and salvage a bad situation. Grand Cru has been a favorite, and we made a New Year's Eve reservation for six. Despite having a 7:30 reservation, we spent more than 75 minutes at the bar awaiting our table -- first told... More

We have come to Grand Cru off and on for years, starting when it was located in a much smaller space a block or two west of its current location. Just across a couple blocks from the Ballston Metro, Grand Cru is a convenient stop on the Orange and Silver lines. But that's not why you should come. The food... More

Amazing French cuisine. Superb wine flights. Dishes run from $15 to $30. Low lighting environment makes for calm and romantic settings.

I was with a colleague and we decided to sit at the bar. Service wasn't so great but it didn't spoil the meal. I started with the warm Brussel Sprout salad and it was great. For main course I had pork tenderloin. Excellent!! It ended up being rather expensive overall and that's because of the drinks. Total bill with tip... More

Eight college friends went out for dinner on a Saturday night. We were able to get a reservation for 6 PM. We even got there 15 minutes late and they sat us with no problem. Some people at the table got entrées while others of us shared a variety of appetizers as dinner. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the... More

Went here for Sunday brunch and the Crocque Madame was the best I've ever had. My boyfriend enjoyed his salmon as well. We'll definitely be going back when we're back in town next month. Tasty food and nice ambience.

Good food and good wine. Good happy hour. Very nice area for outdoor seating. The first time I went here our server was Fatima and she was awesome. The second time I was there our server (cannot remember her name) was less than stellar.

First thing to know is the backside of the restaurant opens onto the Ellipse, a garden-like patio with trees in the mid c le of the block that can be accessed from 3 streets. On a cool day, even in the low 80s, it's a lively, and lively, place for lunch. We had noon reservations and the patio was full... More

I found it hard to believe that when substituting a cheaper item (chicken) for a more expensive one (tuna) that I incurred an additional $2 charge -- really??! Would I return? I will resist.
