Such a great time celebrating a birthday. The food was full of flavor and so fast. The pastries, entrees, and desserts were so good and authentic. Timothy, our waiter, created such a wonderful experience. Would definitely go back for any occasion!!
Another great evening at Le Dip! Reliably delish French classics, wonderful service. A bit too loud, am glad we were just a party of two, but that’s sort of what you get at a bistro in Paris too
The best bread anywhere! Excellent service!
Our waiter was great. The brunch food seems to have declined in quality recently though
Always a great experience all around. Delicious food, friendly staff, and excellent service.
Lovely bistrot meal. Reminded us of Paris dining.
Food was very good, but it was very loud, very crowded. Could barely hear the waiters. Not as fancy of a restaurant as we were told. I think experience would’ve been a lot better if we sat outside!!
The place is wonderful as usual! Food, service, music, atmosphere are amazing!
Loved this restaurant, will definitely be back! Good French experience
This place transports you back to Paris. From the jazz playing to the fresh cut bread it will make you want to return again. Food was great and the drinks were flowing. Make a reservation well in advance since this will fill up.
Fantastic as always. A DC staple that survived the pandemic and came out with the same stellar level of service and food.
Food was excellent, especially the oysters. Beef bourgignone was really good. Server and overall service was excellent as well. Had a great time.
The entrees came out right after we finished the oysters which felt too soon. We wished we had a few minutes pause before diving into another course. We also had cold air blowing on us where we were seated which felt uncomfortable (was a mild evening). Restaurant was rather crowded.
The restaurant is excellent, nothing out of place, and the food is delicious. The staff takes pride in their service delivery; Nabil, try and ask for him.
Great lunch sitting in the outdoor booths. All food was excellent!
Amazing food amazing service 5 stars! Le diplomat never disappoints
Chibak = best server ever
Great food! Wouldn't recommend Profiterole if you don't like banana and chocolate together. Crème brûlée is extraordinary. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for antipasti Ricotta Ravioli, Mushroom Tart, Onion Soup Gratinée, for entrees Salmon, Steak Au Poivre, and Steak Frites. The steak is SOOOO GOOD! For a person who doesn't like red meat, salmon is a perfect choice! Lots of wine selection and they have a quite a bit outdoor seating that is social distanced. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE FOOD HERE!
Awesome food/service. Great spot.
Lovely venue. Great bread. Chicken paillard was tough and chewy. No steak salad option despite a $38 steak frite option on the menu. Weak lunch choices. Mostly a destination for the ambience.
It was great!
Food was incredible. Service was spectacular. Order the profiteroles for dessert...
Such a great unique and amazing spot! We were visiting from Chicago and celebrating a special birthday and everything was amazing. They adjusted our reservation for us when we ran into a transportation issue so we didn’t have to miss the special celebration. We will definitely be back the next time we’re here!
The bread and butter were amazing and the staff was friendly. But sitting outside it smelled like garbage, which was hard to take. I'm sure it would have been lovely sitting indoors, though it was really cold in there when I went in for the restroom. The burger was good but too salty - and I like a lot of salt. My husband's fish was under-seasoned, but the bean salad that came with it was really delicious, bright and flavorful. He enjoyed his escargot. The service was fine. Overall, I wasn't very impressed considering the amazing choices we have in DC. I probably wouldn't go back but would be happy to accompany my husband if he wants to.
The escargot and Bread is to die for. Can’t wait to go back!
The ambience here is really unmatched. We felt totally transported to France and the food is delicious as well.
Great spot for a wonderful leisurely lunch
Le Diplomate has proven to be a neighborhood mainstay these past months. Consistently good food and service. Kirsten was our server on Monday. She has great instincts and really delivered good service.
Awesome food and awesome service! Really authentic french food!
First time dining here, everything was fantastic, especially the steak.
Service was not good this evening. No one came to our table for a long time. When we finally asked — no apologies. Wrong orders. Rude waiter. Just awkward.
The service and food were wonderful. It was an enjoyable time with family
I enjoy coming to this restaurant for many years. Generally everything is perfect but not my last visit. Our waiter was innatentive and seem to ignore us. We had to wait for almost an hour for our food. Meanwhile we did not get any update about the delay. I had to ask another waitress to help us because our waiter was simply not there. We finally left after two hours with mixed feelings about this meal. I felt so disappointed because we were looking forward for a good experience and a great meal.
We arrived 15mins before our reservation and the very snotty hostess was less than helpful. We decided to get a drink by the bar until our table was “ready”, keep in mind the restaurant was only half full. There was no good reason to make us wait, besides the grandiose attitude from the hostess. Even when our reservation time was up, she wouldn’t sit us until we showed her a closed tab from the bar (the ineptitude of this young lady) as if we were going to flee or something like that. Her attitude was demeaning, unprofessional and she clearly needs to learn how to deal with patrons. Thank God the food and service from our waitress made it so much better, the staff going around asking clients if they needed anything, doing small talk, recommending dishes, and the amazing wine list made it up for such a nasty experience with the hostess. Had I been in a not so chill mood, i would’ve left the restaurant immediately following her rude attitude.
Well worth the wait getting a reservation finally!!! The veal was to die for! So good! Oysters were delicious too! The dessert was delicious!!!
Fantastic waiter explained everything for us first timers, and gave recommendations. Wonderful shellfish, onion soup, cocktails and lobster!
Always a great time.
Wonderful service and the food qas delicious. Time to do a little maintenance to the furniture
