Fantastic - dined outside and felt very safe. As usual the tuna carpaccio was amazing.
Had a great experience on the patio. Felt safe and felt that Le Diplomate followed guidelines extremely well. Food was excellent as always.
An authentic Parisi an experience. Delicious food and great service.
Consistent every time. Just amazing dishes. Beef Bourguignon cannot be touched.
Our food was delicious. Service was really good. We recommend this restaurant for everyone.
Excellent food. Excellent wine. Excellent service. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening.
I love Le Diplomate. It's always the perfect call. This time, I had some guests in town for the first time and I wanted this to be their first impression of DC food...and they did not disappoint. Everything was absolutely delicious, the service was wonderful and the safety standards are very much appreciated.
Great food, but the bathroom needed to be better maintained
It is not the same vibe with COVID-19 but the food is always top notch. We love the salad, mussels and steak frites. One of the best restaurants in DC.
Fabulous as always ! Melvin took great care of us also
Always enjoyable having a meal at Le Dip...
Love this place. The food is amazing and the staff are very friendly
Extensive sitting area outside with distance between tables. Friendly staff. Service is usually good, but not today.
Great food! We ate outside, and they did a nice job implementing all the Covid guidelines for dining.
So great, wonderful vibe, and excellent service! Staple of D.C.
Great experience will go again!
I would not return. Ate there two years ago and had delightful service and great food but this time was dramatically different. I understand that post Covid things are different but there were fundamental misses that should not have happened. Entrees were served within minutes of our appetizers. We sat in front of dirty dishes far too long. Desserts were served without us having silverware and when we asked the food runner, he gestured toward the waiter station but it took minutes before we were brought utensils. No real welcome greeting or thanking us for coming. It was very transactional. Scallops were under cooked and potato purée was overly salty, escargot was not hot bubbling like last time and the gougeres tasted like they had been cooked earlier in day so not only were they not hot, they tasted stale. Random candle placed on edge of our table during our meal without any greeting. It was odd.
Love the food and staff! We always sit outside on 14th St side and eat. You won’t be disappointed by any dish!
The restaurant followed all precautions of coronavirus, complete with temperature checks, outdoor dining and masks on all employees. The food was great, too!
Overrated. Nice outdoor seating but food options were just so so especially for Brunch.
mussells were excellent but would have been better served with a garlic bread not fries, even though the fries were good, the half lobster was so so, the warm shrimp salad excellent, mushroom tart excellent, pancakes good , bacon excellent, bread excellent, great cocktails for brunch, great atmosphere, we had a great time!
It was great to leave the house after 6 months to a place that makes you feel safe enough to enjoy a meal outside
Our server was fantastic!
I wasn’t sure if this place was just trendy or popular for its good location but it’s legitimately a great restaurant. Aside from the great vibe, the food is delicious and we received great service. Recommend the Beef Bourguignon, mussels, gazpacho and French onion soup!
Always a perfect dining experience. Love this place! And the seafood tower is a must!
Great steak frittes and staff
Even with masks and reduced capacity under Covid-19 restrictions, the staff made us feel welcome among the widely-spaced tables. The menu offered excellent choices, and we enjoyed the escargot and the mushroom tart appetizers, the scallops, trout almandine with a very good bottle of sparkling wine. The Vanilla Bean Crême Brûlée went nicely with decaf espresso to finish off an enjoyable evening.
Thank you to our server Anthony :) The mushroom tarte is delicious and so was the Les Vacances cocktail.
Still my most fav place in DC! The food, the service, and the experience is always superb! 5 star for sure!
Well handled service under the current conditions. Same great food.
It was a wonderful experience dining at Pisco y Nazca. They had great safety measures to follow CDC guidelines.
I was looking forward to have dinner in this place, the restaurant is beautiful and the ambience is very nice, but the sodas that I order where flat, the french onion soup it was good,but nothing special, my steak was flavorless, definitely I prefer a steak from Outback or Texas Road House for half price. Unfortunately not my favorite.
As always, Le Diplomat has fabulous food and service, and adheres to all COVID-19 regulations to keep customers safe.
Food was fine, patio seating is much less than normal experience. Didn’t see a server much, even with a large bill.
I am a former restaurant manager/server/bartender. My comments come from experience in many restaurants. Our original server was very reserved, but soon transferred us to another server. The new server was very attentive at first, but became more distant as tables were transferred to him. I understand. I tried to keep my ordering short and precise. We finished appetizers and were asked if we “would like anything else?” I was confused by that question, as we had only ordered one course. Nonetheless, we ordered our entrees. Remnants of the first course remained as entrees arrived. I had expected the table to be framed for the next course, but COVID restrictions may have changed that hospitality norm. Food was spectacular in presentation, flavor, freshness, and timing. Overall the dinning experience was great, and I made sure to take care of our waiter. Unfortunately my friends and I were limited to soft drinks, which have a marginal affect on check averages. Reflecting on my experience, I ponder the influence of lack of alcohol consumption on the overall presence and mindset of our waiter. Just food for thought. Thank you for a great night!
service and food all great. strip steak au pouve was the weakest dish we got but all of the apps are amazing. Been numerous times in the past and its usually body to body and super loud but been twice with my family since covid lock down protocol and the staff have been really good about enforcing and making the most of the crappy situation. Its a lot easier to have a conversation now that its not super crowded which was a plus for us. Always wanted to bring my parents but father is hard of hearing so it wasnt really a good option for a family dinner until recently. Would definitely return for the mushroom tart, steak tartar, foie gras mouse and escargots, had would recommend the steak frites over the new york strip but really cant go wrong with anything at this place.
It’s our favorite restaurant. Sadly we came during a shift change and menu change. Had we known there was an hour gap between brunch and dinner we would have changed our reservation time. The first waitress was horrible. We were ignored. Our order was also wrong since she didn’t care to wait on us. When the new waiter came...he was amazing and we got the true Le Dip service we are used too. Needless to say avoid 4-5pm (Midday weekend) unless you want minimal items to eat. Go well before 4 or after 5.
Fabulous! Great time had by all!
Nice brunch outside! The service was great and the food was good.
