The French Onion Soup was just ok but the mussels were yummy. My bf got the rock fish which was ok, it's tender, wish the sauce had a bit more flavor, too bland for my taste. However I love the duck breast, cooked to medium exactly how I ordered it and it was perfect together with the sauteed apple. You... More

We eat at Montmartre about once a week and always have great service and excellent food. The French have a delightful way of combining the fish or meat with an array of varied and interesting vegetables. Adventures in fine eating.

We went here during our vacation to DC. To try something different, it was so good. I had the rabbit and my husband had the duck it was very good, good portions too. The staff was very friendly and they take reservations which was nice. Desserts were great too. I would love to come here again.

I have now been to this restaurant twice, specifically for the roast duck. The apple cider sauce which accompanies it is absolutely phenomenal, and the polenta is creamy rather than grainy. If I lived closer, I would be a regular. Friends who have visited with me have had mussels, calamari, and monkfish, and have been pleased with their dishes as... More

We had a wonderful dining experience at Montmartre this past week, The restaurant is small and intimate, low noise level and away from the tourist and trendy restaurants downtown. Wait staff was attentive and genuinely eager to please. The food was excellent; I had the braised short ribs - menu offers a wide variety. Very reasonable wine selections and pricing... More

I had not been to Montmartre in some time and had forgotten how terrific their service was in this Washington DC French Bistro. More importantly the Chef owner Stephane recognized us and came to the table to welcome us back to his neighborhood gem. The ever so stylish Anne who masterfully manages the front of house gave us the most... More

My cousin and I went for a business dinner hoping that we'd find a great French Bistro near Eastern Market. It was cute. All the staff had real or really good fake French accents. The menu was bistropropriate. Service at the first was fine. The food.....not so great. Wine selection was OK. Lots of unusual labels at OK prices usually... More

My husband and I used to come here once a week when we lived on the Hill over 10 years ago. We came back for a family visit this past week and had the pleasure of both a Sunday brunch and a Friday dinner at Monmartre. The escargots and the braised rabbit are just as amazing as I remembered.

What a refreshing place! The owners and managers are French and their 'joie de vivre" is apparent, appealing, and contagious. The menu offers a variety for both foodies and youngsters. Recently renovated, the colors and artwork are quite inviting. Perfect for a romantic dinner, a family gathering, or a business meeting, the food is spot on and so is the... More

...and yet in the heart of washington DC! Found this on trip advisor and wasn't disappointed. Authentic French food that was surprisingly un-Americanised. All the waiters were French which was nice. Dishes like beef bourgignon, oysters and ile flottante. Rustic decor but warm and cosy.
