  • Last Friday of every month is the French house music party called Maison. TMY + guest DJs + $5 champagne glassed from 10-midnight.
  • Third Wednesdays for Maison are the best! Good music and champagne..
  • Be very cautious when sitting down. The chairs are very very brittle. The sound they make definitely over powers voice. Bring noise canceling head phones.
  • Last Friday of every month is Maison upstairs! for more info
  • really good fries -- seasoned and spiced nicely, and served in a cone! downfall: the place looks like a victoria's secret store rip-off.
  • DJ knows how to keep the party going in the lower level with a great mix of new and old- fun, intimate dance party in DC on a Saturday night.
  • What a gorgeous place. Great food and drinks. Downstairs can get a little crazy and it's hard to get a drink so I recommend the upstairs for ordering drinks
  • The patio is open today! A perfect day for an outdoor happy hour!!!!
  • Nutella iced expresso is to die for!!
  • Que Sera is the jam.
  • Savory Crepe: FlorentineSweet Crepe: JosephineYou will NOT be disappointed!!!
  • Dog friendly if you sit out front. can watch people test drive their sneakers up and down the street!
  • Great brunch on great patio off of the bustle of 18th ST, family friendly.
  • If you are looking for the right crowd and the best time ever, the Colombian/Latin parties hosted here by LaGallera are a MUST.
  • Late night DJs and parties
  • one of the most best value brunches in DC! a nice atmospheric ambience, great poached eggs - bang for the buck!
  • Cute place. Love the happy hour champagne cocktails. The most uncomfortable bar stools in creation! Hate them! But I still love this place.
  • Shrimp quiche is extremely tasty. Worth ordering. Ask for a table by the window. Service is ok.
  • Bitches Who Brunch voted the Le Cirque Brunch at Napoleon Bistro and Lounge the worst party brunch in 2012!
  • Le sous-terrain c'est incroyable - surtout le 14 juillet pour la prise de la Bastille. Un dcor Versailles chic mais un peu tacky
