Uncomfortable metal chairs.
Food was delicious.
Service was average this time.
was disappointed to not be sat in one of the built in covered private tables that have been advertised but luckily we sat in a section with a wonderful server who compensated for the lack luster table that kept moving every time something was placed on the table. Other than that and the heat lamp that kept going out (our server was great and got someone to fix it after the second outage), service was amazing and the food, delicious. Can’t wait to come back and hopefully be able to sit inside next time!
Outdoor dining in the “street shacks” is the best dining can offer during COVID, especially in winter. You are safe and warm!
Amazing service and I loved the cute little huts, as that made outdoor dining such a fun and cool experience!
My first time eating out at a reastaurant since the pandemic and it was great! The mussels were absolutely delicous and perfectly paired with fries. My friend raved about her steak frites entre as well as her french 75.
The outdoor pods were... a little chilly LOL (but totally to be expected in January). The pod itself was comfortable and intimate. The wait and bus staff were friendly and attentive. Overall, it was a really good experience.
Fantastic experience. We were in the ‘tent’ outside, beautiful ambiance. Food was outstanding. Service was terrific, per usual.
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe our experience. Highly recommend
Food was delicious and service impeccable—enough said!
Our server Tim was amazing! Best experience. Love this place!
I love the staff, the outdoor seating, the food and the french flair. We always enjoy ourselves.
As always delicious, attentive service, remembered birthday without prompting. Warm outside Oasis during pandemic!
As our first Covid experience dining in at a restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised by how safe the entire experience was. Food was amazing as usual!
The food is great as usual. Service was perfect, very attentive.
The new outside dining is cute!
Love it. Will come back.
The entire experience was exceptional from start to finish. LeDip has gone to extraordinary measures to ensure that their outdoor dining experience is warm, safe and comfortable. We sat in one of the outdoor huts, which was clean and very warm. Our server was courteous and cautious and very attentive. The food was so so good. My husband and I had the Loup de mer which we loved. The kids had the warm shrimp salad which they devoured. We can’t wait to come back to DC so we can dine there again. I hope they keep the outdoor dining huts and pump air conditioning in the summer. It was fun! Well done!!
We ate in one of the outdoor cubicles- they were perfect! Heated individually, very safe - the best I have seen in the city. Everything else was perfect also - service and food. A wonderful experience during difficult times
My favorite place
Always the food was superb and the Le Diplomate has done an amazing job with the COVID protocols and the individual dining sections outside.
Le Dip is doing a great job at keeping guests comfortable during COVID. Overall a great experience!
The outdoor dining experience they created due to Covid was exceptional. You get your own private dining that actually has a heater built in for the cold weather. Noise was minimal due to the closed in space that you get.
Absolutely love this place! The service and food are always great, but a cool new addition is the outdoor seating they've built. Heat blasts through each section of seating and honestly, you kind of forget you're outside in the winter! My favorite restaurant in DC
Everything was delicious. Service was friendly and accommodating. Can’t say enough positive things about Le Dip!
They have done a great job of figuring out outdoor Covid dining- Easily a 5 star
But my entree was not so good! We split mussels for appetizer- it’s a great 2 person appetizer.
It was great! They have this booths seatings ! Safe and very nice!! Food fantastic as usual.
Excellent meal, love the cabana’s!
Always perfectly cooked food, perfectly chilled Champagne, and perfect service. Rare to find such consistent quality.
Le Diplomate did the best it could in the colder outside seating . No matter how hard they tried to keep us warm . it was cold . The cold even cooled the hot soup before the spoon hit the bowl . That said it was fun to sit inside the little huts made for the winter . I really had a good time . I would still recommend the Le Diplomate for turning an stay at home day into something special .
Great set up for outdoor eating during covid times, felt very safe
Had a great meal. They have done a great job with the current restrictions that are in place.
Food was beyond amazing! One of the most beautiful restaurants in DC. Service was excellent.
Great outdoor setup. And amazing service. Food was also fantastic
Comida muy rica!!! Servicio excelente. Por la pandemia el restaurante ahora es afuera y hacia uno o de frío, pero tienen calentadores que ayudan, igualmente fue una buena experiencia
Food is always good here. I came with my uncle and dad and they loved the food. The shrimp on the warm salad were amazing, cooked so perfectly and sweet with a wonderful texture. The mushroom was a hit as was the trout almandine and beef Bourgogne. The ratings on ambiance and noise level are only because of the outdoor mandate but my uncle and dad are both older and they were comfortable in the outdoor dining area they had set up. It can get a bit chilly if your by the entrance of the cubbies but I brought a blanket for my lap and it was perfectly fine.
Definitely want to acknowledge the entire staff for the wonderful job they are doing in spite of working in very cold conditions. Warm and efficient service. Merci beaucoup!
Excellent bday brunch at Le Diplomate ! Covid or no Covid ! I was impressed with the dining cubicles assembly. Provides privacy , safety , and comfort with heat directed through vents! They thought of everything !
Food was wonderful and the server made it even better with his charm and wit ! Thanks Le Diplomate ! I will return! A bientôt !
The little dining cars are perfect! Ventilated but heated also, and super cozy!
Lovely! Outdoor seating was comfy and safe!
Delicious and great Covid protocol. Will return soon.
The food was excellent, our server was great and really cared about his customers. He was very attentive. The outdoor seating that was built with heat and lighting was amazing. I can imagine how much money was spent on this. We were so comfortable and warm. I would highly recommend!!!
Incredible all around
Prompt service, courteous and very helpful wait staff; food and cocktails were amazing!
