Saint Ex is not a safe place. My girlfriend and I had a horrible experience here and the worst part is that security were the ones responsible.This happened on Sunday, April 15, 2017. My girlfriend and I were having our last drink of the night when suddenly someone undid the knot on the back of her dress. We quickly identified... More

I went to this bar last Saturday night (morning of Sunday, April 16th) and had the terrible experience of having my shirt untied twice by a guy who thought it was OK for him to decide when to undress me. At the beginning I thought he was a bouncer at the place because he was telling me to leave and... More

Cozy place to have a beer and some great food. Staff was friendly with excellent service. Had the burger and NY strip steak and they were excellent!

After shopping at Room & Board across the street, we ducked into Cafe Saint-Ex for lunch. My wife LOVED her tuna salad with cranberries, egg and tiny potatoes. I wasn't quite as wild about my pulled pork sandwich, but the pork, cucumber slices, cheese and deep bread were each separately wonderful. The place as empty when we started, bit it... More

We stopped here for dinner because it is my daughter's favorite. I had the hamburger and salad and it was delicious. My SIL didn't care for the pasta dish, it didn't have enough flavor for her liking. But they tried to make it right for her, and ended up not charging us for her meal. Nice people. Drinks are good.

Food, drinks and service were great. My duck breast however was tiny. Almost no meat. Prepared well otherwise. Good soup. Porkchops and rock fish were well liked and good portions. Wine selections were really nice. Would try again.

Very interesting interior decor in tribute to author/aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, (The Little Prince). Exterior is the great architecture typical of this renewed region of DC, I was able to enjoy my lunch outside on a beautiful fall day when the ginkgo trees were vibrant yellow. There was traffic noise but the day and scenery made it worthwhile. I didn't... More

It looks like this restaurant is named after a famous French aviator Aintoine de Saint Exupery, though we first associated it with the Lyon airport named after him. Food is good and served in generous proportions. We enjoyed great salads and a nice bowl of pork belly noodle soup. Decor is French antique posters. Service is reasonably fast. It's a... More

I've eaten here a few times (dinner and brunch) and I have always enjoyed the food. I've gone for the burger or the fish in the evenings and for brunch, eggs benny with fried green tomatoes. So I suppose you can't mess those up but some places do. The service has ranged from good enough to excellent and they have... More

I'm a fan of Cafe Saint-Ex. Great food. Cute restaurant. Great outdoor patio. The burger is delicious. The breakfast biscuit sandwich is delicious. Service can be a problem. I've had the same uneven experience at its sister restaurant, Bar Pilar. Here's my theory. During weekend brunches, they staff their servers way too thinly. Waiter doubles as bartender, and one server... More
