Wasn't there for a meal but a fundraising event, so I can't judge for the food as that was laid on by the organizers. But the location is quirky, and a pleasant stroll over from the renovated waterfront park. High ceilings at two levels, with overlook, make for three great screens for videos or presentations, but acoustics resonate the sound somewhat. Good service. Overall, as an event venue it's a Good less-known alternative for up to about 100.
On Mother's day, we went for Brunch at Malmaison. We made reservations in advance. We were a party of 3. The place is casual, with two different kinds of sitting. There are regular tables, and sofas with coffee tables. They also have a pastry shop and Cafe. It is in Georgetown waterfront. The Mother's Day Brunch Menu was a special one. The Menu was very good. I had the Malmaison Crepes, my husband some beef and eggs, and our daughter, the benedict eggs with avocado. All three were very good. They also had bottomless mimosas for two hours, at a good price. The desserts were also, fabulous! Service was a little bit slow, I suppose because of the special occasion. We had a nice Brunch and afterwards took a stroll in the waterfront. Nice way to spend an afternoon.
MalMaison is beautifully decorated and had live music for Sunday brunch, but the charm stopped there. The service was spotty and our waiter seemed distracted the entire time. We ordered a pastry basket to start, which was never brought out. Our waiter also got our side orders wrong and we didn't have silverware when the food was brought out. We were not even provided with sugar for our coffees. The food that we ordered that did arrive at our table was average. My omelette was overcooked and the sauteed potatoes were bland and greasy. The wrong side order was brought out and when the right one finally was brought to the table, it was cold and looked like microwaved turkey sausage. The table next to us had service issues, too. MalMaison has great potential if they work out their service issues and improve the food a bit. We will probably pick another place for brunch next time we are in Georgetown.
