We had a wonderful experience at Cafe de Paris. From the outside, it has somewhat of an unassuming look to it (my husband though it was WAY more casual--like a sub shop--given the exterior!) But once inside, it was warm and vibrant at the same time. We had a going-away dinner for my cousin and his wife, and since they currently live in Sherlington, VA, and we live in Baltimore, it was a good halfway point for all of us. The barkeep was pleasant and knowledgeable and took care of our needs well--very attentive. The hostess was pleasant, and our waitress Jennifer was right on the money with her recommendations.
Pros: The food, ambience, wine, desserts, service
Cons: The green awning
