A glimpse of Paris with the DC locals. Great food and environment.
Wonderful food and atmosphere!
We had to wait about 15 minutes for our reservation, but we got a full apology, some snacks AND two full glasses of champagne! Had a great time and the food was excellent as always.
Waitress forgot about half our order. Chair at table was broken , had to swap myself. Food came out way too fast. Very much overpriced. Not a good experience.
We celebrated my husband's birthday here for the second year in a row. The food and service were phenomenal as usual!
Appropriately buzzing atmosphere. Experienced service. Goo French bistro food.
Great place for that special occasion! Service is great!
Great meal and experience as always. Thank you! Mrose
My husband and I went for our anniversary. It was a fantastic experience!!
This was one of the best meals I've had in D.C. and that's really impressive. The food was stellar, the service was excellent and the atmosphere felt authentic. It's a little noisy inside, but it was a fun, bustling environment. My coworker and I thoroughly enjoyed everything. My dorade was so good, I could've eaten another. My coworker claims that his half chicken was the best he's ever eaten. The cost was surprisingly low for what we got. I would put Le Diplomate to anyone in D.C.
The food came out very quickly but it was otherwise a wonderful experience.
Best Steak I’ve ever had! Mashed potatoes were delectable, and our server was phenomenal.
Great but loud.
Like being in Paris ...every corner and every part of this restaurant is tres French 🇫🇷
Like in France, trust your server’s recommendations...perfect with cheese boards and with wine. Ours was amazing, perfect level of attention. We enjoyed every moment and every bite.
AMAZING! Our waiter, Alex, was absolutely the best. There was a slight problem with one dish. The manager, Casey, went above and beyond to ensure that we were taken care of. The food was phenomenal. It was a great night!
The food was delicious. We were seated promptly. The scallops were particularly good. The profiteroles were exceptionally good for dessert. The dessert consisted of a flakey pastery with 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream topped with warm chocolate sauce. This is a must get dessert.
The food was wonderful, the service was excellent, and I am enjoying a piece of toast right now from the loaf that we purchased to go (yum!)
Went for brunch and it was a wonderful experience - great service and the omelette and duck were both amazing.
6 month wedding anniversary
The food was incredible but the atmosphere was LOUD. Went for dinner and it was difficult to hear each other across the table.
having been to paris, and lived in NY, we enjoyed the closest thing to a real French bistro- here in dc
bread, food, service- all excellent- we will return.
Not the place for a quiet conversation- but energy abounds.
The three of us had a wonderful meal with great cocktails, wine and beer. Our service was spectacular. Our waiter was informed of a gluten intolerance with one of us and took very good care of her.
Thursday night had sole special with asparagus. Other than a bit too salty ( which could just be my taste of course) it was excellent.
Excellent food and attentive service—enjoyable experience
Classic brasserie experience. Terrific cuisine and super service.
Always perfect. :).
Always love coming back and enjoying a nice meal and nice wine. Always leave with a full heart and stomach!
our server was informative and charming, apparently he just started this month. food was dynamite and the cheese for dessert was next level. nice atmosphere.
The lobster Risotto was really very good as were the Gazpacho and the escargots. All in all a fine meal and we would return when in D.C.
Wonderful service. Amazing seafood tower. Felt good.
Amazing every time. Model of consistency. Save room for dessert if you can
Fantastic dining experience. The food was amazing, who knew that poached eggs on polenta could be so orgasmic? The warm shrimp salad was to die for. We will be going back soon. VERY soon.
Always a great meal. We went on Labor Day and it didn’t seem too busy but service was a bit on the slower side and we had to wait awhile between our starters and our entree to arrive. Otherwise we had a great experience. Always order the foie gras mousse. It’s divine!! Lobster omelette was incredibly decadent and a bit heavy but delicious if you’re ready for a supreme cheat meal.
Always good go-to place, however attitude from
Staff needs to be pulled back
It happens once you walk in to hostess stand and continues throughout evening
African American woman diner: Always made to feel welcome. Came at 10 on a busy night. Our server was attentive, friendly and professional. When the poulet was delayed they sent charcuterie. When they were out if tarte tartin they sent a gratis dessert. True service, warm lovely ambience and great food. A DC fav💕
Love this place! Great service, great food, great cocktails, great atmosphere. Not a lot you can complain about here.
Visiting from Austin Texas, we enjoyed the food and service. The Eggs Norwegian was delicious!
Cocktails and wine were excellent, excellent bread, service was good, food was over salted and quality was wavering between good to great.
