This French bistro is the place to see anyone who’s ever been on “Meet the Press". The food is also delicious.
Excellent food and menu. Arrived on time, had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Extremely noisy and on top of that, a table of loud children were seated nearby. Just really impossible to talk or hear oneself think. This negated the positive aspects - food and menu - to make us eager to leave.
Absolutely wonderful experience at Le Diplomate! After a fantastic meal, we were surprised by glasses of champagne from the restaurant in celebration of our anniversary. Classy!!!
The meal at Le Diplomate was superb. Every dish was delicious. The service (surprisingly) was really terrible. I was celebrating graduation with my grandparents, but we felt neglected for most of the evening. We got no explanation of the menu from the server, who took a good 20 minutes to get our drink orders and water. The bar was out of the wine I ordered, but the other drinks came to the table anyways, which made it very awkward. In general, the server seemed really disengaged. I've had excellent service before at Le Diplomate and was very shocked at the poor quality this time.
Great food and atmosphere. Service was excellent.
Food was delicious and they service was on point. The scallops entree was far more substantial than what you usually get at a high end restaurant. Creme brûlée was quite tasty.
Service felt very rushed.
What a fun experience! We were in town on our honeymoon and had planned on “Le Diplomate” as a nice dinner out. Our server, Alex, was wonderful. He guided us through the menu well and patiently answered questions. He did a great job clearing our table between courses as well. The food was tastey. We ordered the a lot of food but really enjoyed the mushroom tart, per Alex’s recommendation. We also order the petit chilled seafood plate. WOW! What a great deal, so much yummy food. We ended with night with bubbly and a plate of small desserts Alex brought us as a gift, since the dessert we order was no longer available. Very happy experience!
Food was good.
Service was disappointing. No good suggestions, no careful attention to clients.
Lackluster service. Food also left something to be desired. Don't understand the allure and hype of this restaurant other than the aesthetic.
It was great. Don’t know why opentable sent an email that we missed our reservation
Incredible restaurant. Service was great. Food was amazing and extremely well priced! Can't wait to come again..
I don’t know if I’ll ever get anything they than the streak and fries. I’m sure everything else on the menu is amazing, but my god is it amazing.
Food was great as always. Cheeseburger and frites beautifully satisfied post theatre cravings!
They did not serve us a bottle of wine because one persons ID was expired. Even though he had another ID and other things that had his name on it
Service was incredible and so was the food. A few favorites were the crudo, beef bourguignon and lamb. Very good wine selection, French focused but giving you a wide range of options from around the world.
Wonderful service and the onion soup was deeply satisfying on a rainy day
I was expecting better food for the cost and all the hype around this restaurant. It was fair at best. No plans to return, because there are so many truly wonderful restaurants in the DC area.
Le Diplomate consistently serves great food and wine. I wish the wait for a table wasn’t quite so long but it’s definitely worth it. It’s my current favorite restaurant.
Nabila made out experience! We was so nice and attentive. My boyfriend and is left happy with the food, the restaurant, and impressed with the service.
We felt very at home. I lived in France for several years, so I was pleased with the authenticity of the meal. It was great that they had a good selection of half- bottles! We will definitely return.
Great awesome delicious we had a blast i recommended for everyone
This restaurant came very highly rated from locals. Even though the food was very good, We were disappointed in the appearance and general ambiance. We had reservations but were made to stand for 15 minutes until they seated us right by the door. It was noisy, and had a hectic feel. Not one I would go back to.
Everything was great, even the food! It was just a bit too salty though, so I felt I had to finish it because of the price. The lamb was made perfectly and same with the veggies though. Thank you!
Perfect spot for a quick and delicious late night meal!
Amazing food amazing place!
Dinner after Bon Jovi concert. We did open table and found ale Diplomate was open so decided to go eat French and it was amazing.
Great food & service. Waiter refilled my water glass about 9 times , impressive!
We went for a post Mother's Day dinner. This is hands down my favorite restaurant! The food is amazing, and the service is great! I look forward to coming here for special occasions. We live 45 minutes away, but it's well worth it!!! I would highly recommend Le Dip!
I go here every time I am in DC and for good reason: Le Diplomat has always delivered. The menu strikes a good balance of hitting gourmet marks without being overly pretentious. We ordered dishes family style, and there was not a soft spot in anything we ordered. Outstanding service, coupled with excellent food guarantees I will be back next time I have a trip to DC.
50th Bday. Beautiful evening.
Le Dip went out of their way to make our first anniversary special. Thanks for the bubbly!
Good food. Very French
Awesome Mother’s day lunch.
They did an amazing job with Mother’s Day brunch!
Cheese selection by waiter excellent. Steak tartare perfect. Duck with cherries divine
It was perfect for a family celebration! Food was amazing and service was outstanding. We will be back.
What a fantastic experience we had at “Le Diplomate”.
“Le Diplomate” is a combination of a fresh, healthy, delicious food and great atmosphere, it has a very unique style with a Europe touch.
A very special thank you to Ava, who was a Star! She has high management standards, class, manners, very strong leadership, professionalism and absolute respect for her customers.
It was a great pleasure at your restaurant. Anna and Lora
Food excellent and presented beautifully as always. Music a bit too loud.
