Amazing service and meal!!
The diplomate never fails to impress - absolutely amazing food and dining experience.
We sat in the private covered constructions they have built but we froze as the heater was not strung enough
The food was on point and delicious, but our experience was a bit sour because the service wasn’t at its best. Some hosts were rude, especially at the entrance of the restaurant. I know we are living in uncertain times with Covid-19, but having courtesy is vital. I was dying to visit this restaurant, and now I'm just disappointed.
Thank you for a great birthday brunch!
Food, service, covid precautions...all made the experience perfect as always
Food was great. Mike was great. Nice wine menu
Just when you think “the Dip” can’t get any better, you meet your server: Lola. The best!
Amazing socially distanced huts. Food as always was amazing and service was 100%
Le Dip is our go to in DC. We had the King Crab app, Duck, Burger, Profiterole... ALL were amazing as usual!
Delicious food, excellent staff.
Phenomenal outdoor dining experience with quiet private (and heated) booths that offer a great deal of partitioning between you and your fellow diners. This will be my new “go-to” COVID dining destination! Their moules frites were the best mussle dish I’ve had in my life. Packed with fresh herbs, garlic, and butter. I highly recommend Le Diplomate to anyone in search of a sense of a traditional feeling restaurant experience during these challenging times.
The outdoor cubicles are covid-19 protected and well heated. Great solution for a great meal
We ate here for my birthday dinner and it was a great experience. They only had outdoor seating available but the little huts have heating in them and we were very warm. The beef bourguignon was delicious as were the profiteroles for dessert. We tried a few cool cocktails and overall it was a wonderful meal. Would highly recommend!
It was cold outside, but very well done and lovely seating.
Fabulous food. Excellent service from our French waiter. Always a great meal.
We went on Inauguration Day, which is also my birthday. We sat in one of the heated booths outside which was very cozy on a cold evening. LeDip is my favorite restaurant in Washington and we often go there for special occasions. The waiter was very attentive.
The appetizers and dessert were excellent, we had the beet salad and ravioli, and the crepe brûlée for dessert. The entrees were a bit disappointing- the lobster risotto and the mules frites were good but not as good as other dishes we have had in the past.
We will definitely go there again and recommend the restaurant to our friends.
Amazing experience! Amazing food! Amazing atmosphere. We sat outside in their temporary street tables and it was beyond nice. The outside tables are heated and have dividing walls for the ultimate COVID safe dining experience. Would recommend it to anyone.
Went to celebrate and it did not disappoint!
I really hope Le Diplomate receives this review. My best friend and I had such a good time. I loved the private areas they built and our server Geda was amazing. He gave great recommendations, he was funny and he took great care of us. My meal was incredible and Geda even brought us a little treat. I really enjoyed everything.
Our food was great, per usual.
Additionally, our server Matthew was one of the best servers we’ve had in quite some time.
This was for my beloved’s birthday. I had the scallops and he the had beef bourguignon. It was an elegant and perfect place for celebrating. Excellent service.
I was so happy to return to Le Diplomate after a year away.
The outdoor seating was beautiful and comfortable.
Awesome anniversary at one of our favorites!
Amazing as always!
Amazing Covid outdoor experience! All was spectacular! The heaters, the service, the food, and the way they created lots of comfortable and safe outdoor space!! Relaxing and much appreciated getaway for these times!!
Staff was friendly and accommodating
love the heated booths and service.......................
We were put on the outside corner (outside the hostess stand) which is more exposed to the “outdoors”, where we knew would be a little more chilly but assumed the heater would protect us. We quickly realized the heater dod not work. After sitting there shivering and asking both the hostesses as well as our waiter to help assist with the heat (several times), the problem was never resolved and we had to cut the brunch early and go home to warm up. Beyond that food was delicious per usual.
Loved the outdoor dining options that have been installed
Outdoor setup was cozy and our server was great!
The outdoor seating was transformative given current restrictions for restaurant dining. Very comfortable, well-lit, and conditioned. We felt very safe, and comfortable. And the food was fabulous!!!
The outdoor cubicles were perfect. The central blown in heat was perfect to heat the space and no noise of the usual patio heaters.
Adele was fantastic!
Excellent food, excellent staff, excellent outdoor dining experience considering it's January in DC. Clearly the organization has the capital to invest in a comfortable outdoor dining space & I applaud their decision to spend that capital. Well worth it for those dining.
We ate outside on a very mild January day. Sunshine and table-side warmers made it very comfortable. One of the best steak frites we have had in a long time and cooked exactly as we wanted. shared a side dish of haricots verts also tasty with butter and garlic. Fabulous server who brought us our requested copious quantities of house-made cranberry walnut bread
Covid 19 prevented us from a vacation in France this year and this was the next best thing
Great food. Excellent care for social distancing.
